Reviews for the Morgenstern Troupe series

Joanne Van Os

Star-crossed lovers, murder, curses and secrets... Sean Guy has created a delightful romp worthy of a Shakespearean troupe!

D. A. Cairns

...a tale full of twists and turns: action, intrigue, and humour. I really enjoyed Malediction. I haven't read anything like it.

Sue Moffitt

It's clever and quirky and an exciting read... I was immersed, just like watching a play.

Kingsley Gittins engaging and well-written tribute to all things Shakespeare.

Terry Underwood

[The] thespians in Malediction: The Cursed Play interact with intrigue and ingenuity as they forge relentlessly towards the inevitable but unpredictable finale.

Derek Pugh

Sean Guy spins a brilliant yarn with as many twists and turns as used to be found in stories of the old style - before authors decided to spoon feed us the clues. It's a thinking person's story that follows no formula and is hard to put down.

Sandra Kendell

Malediction merrily mixes genres, crime thriller, fantasy and love stories entwine to confound our expectations... more twists than a pack of twisties.

It was so well written and had me on the edge of my seat! Everyone needs to know how good it is!


If you haven't read this book yet, do! A playful mix of Agatha Christie and Shakespeare.

For me Malediction had everything. I like a book that keeps you "hanging" to the very end.

Sooz Camilleri

Malediction was a blessing...I am breathless having just finished it.

Editor review

When I was younger, Shakespeare was painful to read... I was very surprised to find I couldn't put this book down.

That. was. Amazing!! I was on the edge of my seat for the entire final act. So many twists and turns - I guessed a few, but totally missed most! Hooked to the last word. Also, I was really blown away by the power and strength of the female characters, and the brilliant feminist themes throughout the entire story, that was unexpected but certainly welcomed. Bloody great start, I'm already waiting for your next one.
