Shall we get to my review? Psst. YOU GOTTA GET THIS BOOK, PEEPS!
Written by Kevin McGill, this book which is book one in the series, stands above most fantasy reads that I see nowadays.
Y'all trust me right? This book is so much fun to read, you will be sad when your time with these well thought out characters is over. You want engaging?? You got it! You want fast paced?? You got it! Want great characters and humor on top of that?? You got it! The MERMAN AND THE MOON FORGOTTEN, with its wonderful illustrations by Carlyle McCullough flows easily from one scene to the next, which makes for easy reading. The first two to three chapters are a little confusing, but then the story gets supercalafragalistical, peeps! Kevin is a magical user of onomatopoeia which I loved. Grung, grung, grung, grung, grung, grung. He's a master at this. From the sound of grinding chains to PHFIT! Bodacious! With merpeople and characters you actually pull for. Especially 14 year-old Nick who wants to return to the moon. Kevin plops you right into his world of hovercars and lizardskin. There'sadeadbodyheadonmylap! There'sadeadbodyheadonmylap! Excellent! I was thoroughly tickled to visit Kevin's fantasy world. His writing style is awesome too. I felt as though I would see a creature standing next to me any moment. He pulled me in and never let me go until I sadly finished the story. I really didn't mind waiting on the next installment, because I know I get to be in Kevin's vivid, imaginative, world once again.
Episode two is out and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. Yippee!!!!!!!!! Want to go and visit? Here's some linkage to get you on your way.Thanks for the ride Kevin!
