Only one word comes to my mind when talking about this book. Childish. It was a bit weird as to how the book right away jumped to the action.No easing or introducing to the paranormal factor or the general scenarios of the plot. Simply getting over with the story as quickly as possible
Well i will have to completely agree and appreciate the tagline Sherlock meets Dr.who. It indeed was a meeting of the two and a good one at that. The center character jackaby truly exuded the mannerisms of an young sherlock in a lot of ways and all those supernatural elements simply makes it more exciting and crisp
The plot is definitely cliche but somehow the ending make it worth it because the core mystery was kept so intact and secretively that it alone makes up for whatever negative you may feel about the book. All i say is that it is a quick read.
The book is a quick, fun ride and you don’t even have to worry about the books the books that precedes or succeeds this book in the series because it is good as an standalone and doesn’t leave you with major cliffhangers.
