Review: I loved this book! Ahh! So funny! I actually picked this one up solely on other bloggers reviews, and I was not disappointed. Did I mention that this books funny?

At the beginning of the book Sam is something of a nobody. College dropout, working at a fast food chain, no real aspirations. But a heritage he was clueless about catches up with him and turns his world completely upside down. Adventures ensue, with a healthy dose of hilarity on the side.

I won’t give any of the funnyness away, but this book is very clever and random. Okay, one hint… there’s a scene involving viscous garden gnomes. It should be said though, the plot is strong on it’s own. You go on the ride of a lifetime right along with the rag tag crew that makes up Sam’s inner circle each of who is interesting in their own right. There are no only partially fleshed out, filler characters in this one.

What made this book an especially interesting read is that it’s different from most urban fantasy you see these days. It has a male protagonist! Even it’s cover tells you that this book isn’t quite what you’re used to.

I’m going to keep this review pretty short and let the book speak for itself. It’s a perfect summer read, guaranteed to make you laugh and overall a great story, what more could you ask for?
