Customer Review

on 25 October 2009
Having read and been a little disappointed by The Portable Door, I was very pleased to pick up my second Tom Holt book and find this one much better written and more enjoyable. The humour won't knock your socks off, but there were several laugh out loud moments, which is always a good sign. The story moves on at a good pace, and the plot's about the right level of complexity for such a book. Tom excels in his similes without appearing to try too hard. It helps to have read The Portable Door first, but not totally necessary. One thing that puzzled me: why does the cover name the heroine as Jane, when she's called Emily? Strange!
If you like this kind of humour, a romantic interest, monsters and magic then give this a try.
