This was an amusing story. I don’t normally read this kind of book, but I’m glad I did. The world building and descriptions really brought me into another world filled with humanoid animals. I believe the only other book I’ve read with talking animal characters was The Chronicles of Narnia and that was ages ago. This is very different from Lewis’ novel…very different in a good way and there are no people at all, which really makes it that much better.
I think the main character Bow is a great MC, certainly intertaining. He is sarcastic and kind of an ass, but a loveable ass. He really makes the book great and he cracks me up. The great thing about a character like Bow is that even though he is crass and speaks his mind whether he should or not is that he is loyal and he really would die for any of his friends, a true hero.
In fact, I really loved all the characters. They are all a bit cheeky in their own ways and some of them have pretty cool magical abilities.
If you are looking for an adult book with a humorous tone and talking animals this would be a good book for you. It is also good at setting a medieval-ish tone and sucking you into another world.
