Reviews for Hunt for the Virgin Rainbow by K. M. Steele
‘The setting of the Australian outback is so full of life and detail that it almost feels like a character itself, and the action is fast-paced and exciting, particularly when the heist is underway. The book is inspired in part by Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, as well as James Bond, and those influences make for an exciting romance/crime/comedy blend that feels like a love letter to the outback’… Read full review here.Nita Delgado.
‘I heard the author speak at a function and the humour and love for the storyline emanated from her. I had to see for myself what this #pulpfictionmashup was all about. Glad I did. I found the book got even more amusing on the second read after I knew all the characters so well. K. M. Steele excels at comedic crime; the Australian outback the ultimate setting for this double-crossing heist, involving the real Virgin Rainbow Opal. If you like Janet Evanovich, you’ll like K. M. Steele and the Hunt for the Virgin Rainbow.’Cate Sawyer, Author.
‘I was given the chance to read Hunt for the Virgin Rainbow to design the cover and I am ecstatic it is now published. Hunt for the Virgin Rainbow is a one in a kind read – it is fast paced, witty and a wild ride from start to finish’…Ellen Milligan.
‘A sprightly, engaging and highly enjoyable caper through the South Australian bush. This is a fun and atmospheric novel that holds the reader’s attention and leaves them hungry for more.’Prof. Nicholas Birns, Literature Faculty, New York University.
‘The cover is perfect for this book. There’s a lot of fun packed into 142 pages. Steele gently and knowingly plays with all the classic tropes. It works because Mallory is so engaging. She’s a capable woman with a weakness for a handsome face and a ripped torso. The Australian desert landscape is vividly rendered. As a Brit I am instantly charmed by tales of emus racing across sandy vistas, journeys by camel (in Australia? You learn something every day) and budgerigars flying wild. Now I’ve finished the book, I can still visualise scenes from it and I have to agree with the critic who suggested it would make a great movie.

‘K. M. Steele cleverly weaves a gripping adventure that will keep you turning the pages until the very end. This book is fast paced, maximum entertainment, and impossible to put down.’C. T. Mitchell, Author.
‘A little lightness after a very heavy year. K. M. Steele has written an easy-to-read story that entertains with a novel tale of thieves chasing a precious jewel (and at times each other) across the wilds of Australia. Throw in a troubled female protagonist, a touch of romance, and a mysterious backstory and this book becomes a guaranteed crowd pleaser. The Hunt for the Virgin Rainbow is an all-rounder—it’s accessible, enjoyable and, most importantly, doesn’t take itself too seriously.’Candace Davis, Author.
