You'd expect horror, but what surprises with this book is the clever way that there's plenty of humour too, as well as a hero who isn't just out to destroy by force; he is much more clever than that.
Curtis Jobling's writing is crackingly good in this story injected with wisecracks, bone-cracks and crooked crucifixes as Max confronts an ancient evil. Fans of Percy Jackson are going to absolutely lap this one up.
The vocabulary is electrifying - Jobling's first description of a monster in the book is tremendous and reels the reader in for more. [...] Overall, it feels written with love. They say you should write the book you'd want to read for yourself - I imagine that's exactly what Curtis Jobling has done. Kids will monster munch it up.
As you'd expect this is full of thrilling action sequences but Max is a proper character, a decent young man at that, and his sardonic commentary on the gruesome goings on keep the balance between frightening and funny. Monstrous fun!
This action-packed thriller sets up what promises to be a series filled w ith legend, lore, and epic battles.
