  • talking dogs?
  • bad-ass fighting scenes?
  • sarcastic sidekicks?
  • British characters with undeniably British humor?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions (or better- to all of them) you are in luck! Because this book has it all and more! I enjoyed it so much that I don’t know if I’ll be able to write it all down. This book made me stay up late, and I don’t do that much those days.

If there are people out there that answers ‘no’ to all of the questions – I don’t know what I can say to save you. Books with those themes are pretty cool, so reconsider your book preferences, maybe it’s time to read something different?
