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!!)
