I loved this book. The author made the book fun to read. I found myself laughing out loud at a few of the parts and crying during a few also. The end leaves you wanting more and I can not wait for the next book.

Thought this was hilarious and a quick/fun read. The descriptions of the monsters and the recipes are so silly they made me laugh out loud. Waiting for the next one..

I was really surprised by the lack of quality in this book. It's extremely difficult to read and the author has an odd way of writing. I didn't find anything outstanding. The characters seemed flat and were at times difficult to tell apart. Descriptions were very few, so few to the point that I had difficulty determining when a scene was set in the same place it had been earlier in the book. This is definitely not recommended.
