Can we take a moment to appreciate Malcolm? This was the first book I can recall reading that many caps as this one did, but it was PERFECT!! It enriched the scene so much more and maybe made it a little… warmer? XD
My only "complaint" is that I had a little harder time following along with the retelling of The Little Mermaid. I'm not sure if it was because I was really sleepy when reading or what, but that's not to say I didn't enjoy it. I felt as dumbfounded as Nick about the REAL story! :o A lot of great twists in this one for sure!
Overall, this was another excellent continuing of book one! The author is leaving me on my toes with so much stuff (yes, I am totally using the word stuff because theirs a lot I could share, but that would spoil all the fun) that I would sometimes reread just to make sure I soaked it in right during my shock. Eagerly looking forward to seeing where book three will take us next!
(Those epilogues were beasty!!!!! I don't even know what to say, but I'm pretty sure my heart rate went up at all the crazy things it could mean for these epic characters!!)
Things I liked more:
More fantasy creatures (some with large clubs).
Things that the other one did slightly better:
Tighter plot. This one felt as if it took a while longer to get going. Once it did get going it was really good.
This one is more intent on setting up sequels which is not really a negative, but it does leave one looking forward to future adventures more than absorbing the ones to come.
There was one point where a character had a moment of telling the other characters things about themselves that they didn't know which seemed a little less sophisticated than the rest of the story telling.
Things that I liked more or less the same:
Relationships between the characters which are realistic and lack frustrations of people being mean/petty to each other just for the sake of that--while still being reasonably good at pushing each other's buttons.
The humor is still awesome.
So ... probably the same star rating, but this book does feel like it is moving you between events setting up something bigger.
Definitely worth the read, though, and a lot of fun.
Of course I had to continue reading after the hilarity of the first book. I really missed listening to this on audiobook since the narrator added so well to the experience, so it took me a bit longer to get into this one than the first book. Hopefully this one will eventually come out in audiobook.
This is a crazy, tangled tale in which (once again) fairy tales aren't exactly as they seem. While I don't normally like books with undead in them, the "undead" in this book were more like animated skeletons, which was more funny than gruesome.
With the way this book ended, I really can't wait until the next book in this series!
So glad to have the second book in the tales of Nick and Cordelia! And I was not disappointed! I pretty much read this book in one sitting, as it was one of those books you couldn't put down! Maintaining the hilarity and adventure of what we come to expect from a Beaumont and Beasley story, I enjoyed every moment. What I loved about this book was that it went deeper into the world building, and felt so much like Harry Potter meets Doctor Who! I enjoyed learning about the new creatures, new characters, and new places, as the world of the Afterlands expands into a broader context! It is truly reaching some epic proportions as we get THREE "end credit" prologues setting up for the next books, one of which made my fangirl heart squeal just a little - not going lie!
Yet really what stands out about the story are the characters, and I loved getting to know Nick, Cordelia, and Crispin more. Crispin (Or "Crispy" as Malcom calls him, which I think is the cutest nickname) is a precious cinnamon roll who must be protected at all costs! I thought his love story was so sweet, and I want him and Molly in my pocket! They are too adorable. I also enjoyed Nick's character journey, as little by little he has had to come to accept the realities of a world of magic and the fantastical. I thought the conversation and confrontation he had with his internal "Beast" was really awesome, as Nick stubbornly has to learn to stop fighting against a new part of himself that is starting to grow and become something wonderful and unexpected. This also includes his relationship with Cordelia, who pretty much crashes into his worldview at all times and challenges his perspective. I really like how their relationship is growing, feeling natural and having that understated chemistry that I enjoy! It is one of those situations where literally everyone else around them knows their feelings except them! Haha. It's hilarious, but sweet.
At any rate, this was an excellent second installment in the series! Probably my only criticism being that the climax got a bit convoluted with the exposition and events. However, it had everything the first book had, but just more of it! Crazy magical antics (poor Nick), imaginative & unique retellings of fairytales you think you know, charming characters, and hilarious banter! I cannot believe I now have to wait for book 3! Alas, the life of a fangirl... *sigh*
Side note: My new favorite character is Malcom Blackfire, who just so happens to be a dragon! Loved the volatile, piano-playing headmaster of Warrengate! I kind of want to go to his "anti-hero" school now! *heart eyes*
