Hey, hey, hey, here we are in the month of May! Although, from my vantage point it's a dreary rainy day. So far, here is Buffalo, New York, we've yet to languish in sunshine and warm weather. I hope Nana and Empi's weather is more advantageous than mine.
This month our review team read:
Maggie for Hire
When monsters appear on Earth, Maggie MacKay is on the job. No one is better at hauling the creepy crawlies back where they belong. No one, that is, except Maggie's dad, who vanished in the middle of an assignment.Now, an elf named Killian has shown up with a gig. Seems Maggie's uncle teamed up with the forces of dark to turn Earth into a vampire convenience store, serving bottomless refills on humans. Ah, family...
The only hope for survival lies in tracking down two magical artifacts and a secret that disappeared with Maggie's dad.
WARNING: This book contains cussing, brawling, and unladylike behavior. Proceed with caution.
I was hooked in the first chapter. Read that warning. It holds true. Maggie cracked me up. Sarcasm and snark spews from her mouth and thoughts throughout the story.
At the onset I was enamored with Killian, whom I thought would become something more. But he was basically just there, and I didn't quite understand his role.
This is the first book in a whole line of Maggie for Hire's. Fast-paced, unique, and had me chuckling a couple of times. If you don't like cussing and snarky talk, then this book isn't for you.
As I ventured toward the end of the story, I have to admit the cliches and sarcasm were somewhat over the top, and I felt like I was drowning in them. But, all in all, a fun read.
Now head over to read Nana Prah and Empi Baryeh's reviews.
