(Given to me by the author)
A fantastic epic for kids or anyone who simply loves a great adventure. This is the world's funkiest fairy tale, with great heroes, terrible villains, and unforgettable characters. It's fast, fun, and incredibly entertaining. You'll ride with Taylor James and Robert of Roth as they attempt to defeat the evil Dark Duke. Along the way, you'll have to survive the dangers of Cheshire Woods, battle brutes and monsters, and overcome incredible odds. This unique book will make you laugh and keep you on the edge of your seat. You'll never have more fun reading. If you like stories such as "The Princess Bride," King Arthur, or Lord of the Rings, you'll thoroughly enjoy this engaging tale.
I can't believe I'm about to do this, I'm about to mark a book DNF, but sadly I have to. There is no stopping it. I just couldn't get through this book.
First off I really want to thank this author for sending it to me, but it just wasn't for me. To put it simply I couldn't get through the story, I couldn't even get past chapter 2. I feel like this story is way to much like a few others that I have read and reading it left a pretty bad taste in my mouth.
I don't usually mark books this way, but I can't help it with this one. I will say that not every book is for everyone, so you might like it, but I simply did not! I wasn't on the edge of my seat reading this as the synopsis said, I couldn't get into or connect with the story in any way.
So its with a heavy heart, I must mark this one as a DNF.
( I will not be breaking this book down into ratings like I normally do because I didn't finish it!)
