Mike Carey crafts an intriguing tale that weaves fact and fiction together while reader tries to figure out which is which, right along with the main characters. Mysteries abound and figuring them out isn't the biggest part of the book. The biggest part is how the mysteries come to light and then "solved". I say it like that because the mysteries don't really end, they just open up more questions. Its fun. Simply put, if you're a fan of comics, literary history, or Harry Potter you should be reading this. Also, the Chose Your Own Adventure issue was amazing!!!
