About the Author
Amy Hoff spent years travelling across the United States, living out of cars and cheap motels. She was a weightlifter and street-fighter, collecting monster legends across the country. Eventually she left the USA and continued travelling around the world. She was educated in Scotland and specialised in Scottish history, literature, and folklore. She is now a folklorist and historian whose primary research interest is monsters. She has never owned more than what can fit into a backpack and a suitcase.

I enjoy the premise a good deal and I like the characters. These monsters are more than human enough for my empathy to toe the line.
Other than a character suddenly appearing through the walls of time who sent me scurrying back through the chapter as his appearance confused me, I have only one other complaint, the slang. Some sentences were lost on this American brain, when I could find no definitions in either Wikipedia nor the Oxford English Dictionary. If you are going to use regional/local slang include an appendix please.
I look forward to examining the next Leah Bishop tale.
The quirky personalities and fast paced story pulled me right through; plus it's not a billion pages long. So that "sigh, I'm about to commit to a huge book" moment isn't standing in your way. Amy Hoff includes such a great variety of characters- the ancient elf in a track suit, the surprising all-American mechanic, the time traveling highlander, and your every day Leah Bishop- you never stop to get bored. :-) Beginning with a relatable human, then ending with a cup of tea and a bang, Caledonia was a great time! Looking forward to the next one, and I'm sure I'll be re-reading this one as I wait!
