Pride's Spell by Matt Wallace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The third book's the charm. Or, actually, it's pure hell.
Not for us, mind you, it's all for the characters. And what a hell of a ride it is.
I mean, seriously, after the last book, which I thought was pretty good and definitely funny and fun, I didn't quite expect a full and completely kick-butt tale of Hollywood human sacrifice, pools of chocolate, exquisite tacos from a truck, or awesomely choreographed fight-scenes.
I'm pretty sure that Tim Burton was not consulted for the Truly Strange bits, but I would be quite remiss if I didn't tell Mr. Tim Burton that he probably ought to read this book, tip his hat in serious pride for the spirit of this book, understand that this might be a good deal better than a lot of the more recent stuff he's come up with, and come back to Matt Wallace and tell him that Pride's Spell is now being made by him. I mean, fair's fair. This book is awesome.
I didn't even know, at least, not really, that all these wonderful chefs where so versatile with weapons! Or that evil cartoon bunnies could quite send such shivers down my spine.
So was it more a funny book, an action book, or a horror?
Well, heck if I know. All I know is that all three worked wonders in this one and I think this author has just earned a huge fan. :)
Thanks goes to Netgalley for the arc!
