So the one thing I did learn from this experience is to make sure I read the entire synopsis of a book before jumping in. As I mentioned, I loved the title and the cover so much I went straight to Amazon to read the sample first few pages and was hooked enough to commit. So imagine my surprise when suddenly our main character is dead and speaking to someone with the head of a Falcon! Unfortunately for me, or the author I suppose, I'm not big on the 'mythology' theme in my reading...simply not my cup of tea. So once I accepted that this was indeed the journey we were on, I plunged forward. I will say it is very clever, as well as odd, the whole idea of all these characters with the heads of animals and how they relate to one another. The good news is that Barnabas and Wilfred never lost their character, and only became more endearing, which is what held the book together for me. I can't say as much for the Egyptian gods..they all spoke as you and I would, so that felt less likely and lost a touch of the magic/whimsey for me.
Now, if you're into the mythology, Egyptian/Greek/Norse god thing, and two lovable colorful characters, then this is your book...as a sequel promises more of the same.
Looking forward to more adventures with Barnabus and Wilfred! (Please!!)
I loved the blend of history and PI work. As the, somewhat failing, private investigator tries his hand at helping Anubis, fix an untimely issue for the Egyptians. I loved that it was such a brilliant blend of the two, with a little hint of humour, to really make the story both fun and very interesting.
The level of detail the author put into the story, from the main character’s personalities down to the smallest historical details, really made this read for me. It kept me completely hooked and I really enjoyed diving in and trying to solve the mystery.
I do hope to read many more books by this author, should they be of this same style. I think a lot of the historical sleuth readers, both young adult and adult will grow to love this book.
**I received and arc and chose to provide my honest review.
I was pleasantly surprised by the story line, Barnabas, and Wilfred. The banter between Barnabas and Wilfred was brilliant, I couldn't get enough of it. Barnabas, himself, is a fun, exciting character you can't help but love. Seeing the world through his eyes will defiantly fascinate you. The mystery behind the missing scarab is suspenseful and keeps on the edge of your seat.
So if you are looking for a read that will captivate you with intrigue, history, and laughs, then I would recommend you pick up Barnabas Tew and the Case of the Missing Scarab.
