I am never really any good with these things, I kind of feel like I am at a job interview. So let's see, what can I tell you about me and my little blog thingy? Ok well I am an avid reader and have been doing since I first learned how. About a year ago I became a part of the review world. I am in no way a professional and I pretty much do it for the fun of it. I have no rules and no guidelines for myself, well except for I always have to be completely honest. And you can tell by my reviews that I have posted so far that I have no problem at all with that. I add my personality to every review and I know things don't always make sense but I bet you laughed(hopefully). I usually stick to romance books but I have been know to pick up others if the cover and synopsis garb my attention. I currently help out on a couple blogs and reviews teams plus I am an occasionally guest reviewer on one.
To tell you about me well, I am a 30+ year old stay at home mom. I went completely blind about two years ago. But with a couple of eyes surgeries I now have complete vision back in one eye. I have a serious weakness for tattoos and I am currently proudly showing off 12 of my own. Yeahhhh, so that's it for now.
I was asked to read this book for an honest review.
Let me tell you that I found this book to be one of the weirdest books that I have read in a long time. And I absolutely loved it. There was just so much going on in this book that I wish I had way more time to read it. You definitely would need more than a week to take it all in and thoroughly enjoy it. This book just had you twisting, turning, flipping sideways, turning upside down and running backwards lol. It was all crazy and just weird. But oh it was such a good weird. I think every other word in my notes was the word weird. As you can tell, I am using it a lot now.
Every single character in this book was fantastic. From the tiniest sprite to the biggest stinkiest dragon, I loved them all. Oh yes, I forgot about the normal humans to, I liked them. I really liked how the author had the 3 POVs. You had the 2 main character's POV and then a sorta main character's POV, that I do believe helped make the story. That was a definite added bonus here. We start out by meeting Cobra and Zoe, ha! I am not gonna lie but it took me a minute to warm up to these two, but I think that may have been how it was suppose to be. But I ended up loving the things that came out of their mouths. Some of the stuff that Cobra muttered was some of the exact same things that come out of my mouth. And I really felt sorry for Zoe after a bit and I could kind of understand her attitude. These two were suddenly thrown into taking care of a property that was left to them after their Gran passed away. This father and daughter team had lead kind of a rough life so far and they thought maybe this would be the answer to all their problems. Well Cobra did anyways, Zoe just didn't want to leave her best friend and wished her dad would admit to seeing the orange dragon. What they stumbled into was Rest Inn Peace...Where Life Begins At The End of The Road. Love it! It was a place full of dragons, trolls, zombies, fairies, a talking cat and Reggie. Reggie was the manager of the Inn. I loved her wide open spirit. She was so light and airy and just kind of balanced out Cobra's grumpy self. She proved to Cobra and Zoe that the magic they saw was to be embraced and not ignored, that it was what kept the world moving. But once these 3 zany character and all the magical ones got together, utter chaos, laughs and danger ensued.
So as you can tell, I really loved this book. There was so much stuffed into this story and for once I loved it. It honestly wouldn't of been the same without all of it. You seriously never knew what would happen next or exactly what would pop out of the woods or the fireplace. There were a couple of parts that did kind of slow down and I did skip a few sentences here and there but other than that, it was just great. Oh and my only other complaint is, WHAT KIND OF ENDING IS THAT?!? Does this mean there is going to be another book? Hmmmm? Oh I hope so. If so, I can not wait to read more about all these fruitbatty characters. So if you are looking for that odd little story that will have you laughing, look no further.
