Overview

The Funnyman by Sophia Whittemore

It isn't a laughing matter when Diana starts to see things in the mist which other people don’t: monsters, gods, and deadly shadows. Yet now she sees another thing, the world of the Impetus, a reality where humans are enslaved and the once-beautiful gods are actually tyrants. Diana must find a way to escape before the exiled king Fear, a vengeful murderer, hunts Diana down to get back something she's stolen from him. But will her growing feelings for the Prince Isak, the oddly sullen god of comedy, draw her into an all-out war?

I think this book has a good story but there was a little downside on how it was written or how to plot was presented. Although there are some boring parts in the book, I still enjoyed some parts of it. Especially the parts wherein I DON'T FREAKING KNOW WHAT I WAS SUPPOSED TO DO MY HEART BECAUSE IT JUST WANNA BURST because I was so nervous of what might happen!!! And also, I was kinda more attached with the villain than with the protagonist (and I LOVE WHEN THIS HAPPENS). I still wanna read the second book though because the world-building is good.
