Review: The Argonaut's Almanac Vol 1: Mythbound

Price: £ 2.99 (ebook)
Publisher: Self published

Ahhhhh, Mr DC, how I love you and your books! I've been enamoured with the Train Driver series (can't wait for the third one) and I have delved in to Cornelius Quaint story, so, was totally thrilled to be presented with this little treasure by Mr DC. It may fall in to the children's book category but there is so much more to it than meets the eye.

Firstly, the jokes. There are so many jokes and innuendos that will go over any child's head that it is worth reading this book for them. It's funny and in places smutty, what more could you want.

Secondly, there is one hell of a sexy character in the form of Will Scarlet. He is a total babe and hotty and also a cracking character...seriously, what more could you need?

Anyway, this is the story of Ed and his travels in to another realm full of myths, not legends, but myths. This is a mystical and fantastical story with an ever so slight hint of realism. The levels of DC's imagination never cease to amaze me and this book is another tremendous example. I couldn't stop reading it due to the involving and intriguing plot as well as the fantastic style that DC writes in. So easy to read yet so intelligent at the same time (yes, even though this is a kid's book.)

I can't not pass comment on the illustrations. Yet again, Mr DC displays is never ending talents with illustrations of the characters at the end of the book. Is there really anything this man can't do???

Kid or adult, this book is defo a cracking read and I am so, so, SO, excited to read the next instalment!!!

Happy Reading
