But today their elusive third housemate Hannah had a more heroic pursuit in mind for them.
Only time would tell if she would be able to coerce her lethargic cohabitants into saving themselves from the twin foes of their past combined with an altogether different threat.

I can honestly say that this is the first book I have ever read that kept me guessing 100% of the time. Every last one of my guesses about what would happen next was absolutely and utterly wrong. Usually I get some of the guesses right, so this might be a first. Author Samuel Cornruff is a British author who deserves to be a bit better known, I think. It's as kooky as the title makes you think, with battling giants who really don't care who or what they damage in their fighting, and some unlikely-extremely unlikely-heroes. Stump is a burly Yorkshire farm lad who is a star at cricket and pub quiz nights; Alex, a charming and snappy young man who is surprised to find himself in the possession of supernatural persuasive powers; and Hannah, a bright young student who is so eager to go unnoticed that she comes and goes from her apartment by way of an underground tunnel. These three young college students (and flat mates) are the answer to an ancient prophecy. Up to now, their lives have been no more or less unusual than anyone else's, and with the exception of Hannah, they had no reason to suppose that would change. Hannah seems to know more about the giants and their sudden appearance than anyone should and reels her reluctant friends in to help her defeat them. And then, there are...the ducks. This is probably the most wildly imaginative thing I have ever read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can recommend it to anyone of any age who loves absurd humor and doesn't mind one impossible coincidence after another! The silliness of it is part of the story. Sit back and enjoy-and don't forget. The Ducks.
