Reviews

An exciting speculative thriller with plenty of plot twists and some cool tech that you won't find elsewhere. Sentient AIs, a world post water wars, a courageous but reckless central character come together to offer a satisfying and pacy read.

Set in a distorted future, Leo Hunt's compelling Phantom is a hi-tech dystopian thriller that slaloms effortlessly around the genre's cliches while paying tribute to its titans

The Guardian
Phantom is a well-thought out YA sci-fi thriller with strong world-building and interesting characters. There's a fascinating moral dimension to the concepts of high-end artificial intelligence that's central to the plot, but despite all the futuristic elements, Phantom remains firmly grounded in an all too believable world.
