I would have given this 4 stars but I deducted one because the story ends before it's concluded. I can't stand when books do this. It's fine to have an over-arching plot or villain that lasts through a series, but when you cut the story off in the middle just to force me into getting the next installment, you've lost me.
Very cute story, if a bit weird at times, but I did not appreciate the fact that it wasn't done. For that reason alone I have no further interest in the series.
But what kept me going, especially, was the puns (Demi Gogg as a name, comes to mind) and those slay me, which is why I loved the Xanth novels.
Not that this is in that category, but it reminds me of it, somewhat.
A vaguely unsettling moment when Hitch realizes how old he is compared to his mother, wow (and no mention of how old Jethro is...), was the only thing I did not like about this book, other than the fact that it has no Freaking Ending!
Why do novelists do this, drag you in and then make you get another? Only, there is no other book for this, and that is a darned shame.
Maybe because that it has no others is this books' monster, but perhaps I over think things.
For me, it was strictly the humor that I did not enjoy. I have never been one to like parody movies for I feel like my intelligence is being insulted. The jokes are right in your face and I find nothing funny about them. This pretty much sums up the humor in this book. Now if you enjoy this type of humor you will most likely find yourself suddenly bursting out laughing.
The author does lay down a good story and good characters. Personally, I did have trouble getting around their names only because they would at times take me out of the story instead of keeping me within the weave of the land they created. However, I did enjoy the first part of the book but it did not take long before I found myself struggling through it mainly because of the puns with the names.
As I said this is one of those books that you will love or hate. I have been reading other books since I started this and finally decided I will not be returning to this story. I hope this helps in some ways. I do suggest getting a sample unless the book is offered for free or you can read it through Kindle Unlimited.
I saw good vs evil books advertised for Diwali and it would fit that perfectly as well as for Halloween and general monster adoration. It is about people and life in general with relevance to current events. I'm glad I didn't let the title scare me off!
