Here he presents a new story with a new world. Follow the Deavys – one brother and 2 ½ sisters as they discover the Truth. (Yes, with a capital “T”.)
This is one of those book that’s just a light, enjoyable read. It’s one of those stories where you’re sucked into a book, and are interested in the the characters and what they’re doing, but nothing jumps out at you to stop what you’re doing and take notice. That may sound bad – but it’s actually good. When the entire book is able to keep your interest and nothing pulls you out of the story.
I liked Foster’s use of magic and monsters. It’s not the same old urban fantasy. There’s enough different and creative.
And I liked the inclusion of gneeches!
Though things did seem a bit too easy – especially considering how dangerous it was supposed to be and how young these kids are.
But it was fun.
And I think this would make a great movie.
Recommended if you like light urban fantasy for ages middle grade through adult.
