STAR RATINGS GUIDE
🧡 This had me smiling from start to end. The premise alone tickled me - think TV show Once Upon a Time, but instead of fairy tales, you have main characters from unfinished fan fiction - and Haywood really pulls it off.
💚 The biggest strength of this story is in its characters and their dynamic as a group. There’s that camaraderie and banter you might get in a Peter Clines novel or on Buffy. It also reminded me of Nick Hornby’s A Long Way Down, one of my all-time faves, both in its humour and in that it unifies disparate characters into an unlikely yet tight knit gang.
💜 And - AND - it seems like this is the first of a series.
Big thanks to NetGalley and W.F. Howes Ltd for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 This is a genuinely fun listen. Gethin Anthony seems to morph seamlessly into every character he narrates - myriad accents included - and still manages to hit the comic beats.
