Also I love Simon Jones and believe he could read his laundry list and make it entertaining.
This book was not bad, but it felt like it was extremely abridged, I constantly found myself skipping back a few minutes, because I believed I most have lost concentration and missed something. But no there just was not much meat on the bone here. The plot is interesting, but the details are lacking, the motivations are weak.
The book had enough potential that I’m thinking of listening to the last book in the series to see if the skills of the author improve over time, but I will not re-listen to this book which is very unusual for me.
If you are an adult who sometimes reads a light hearted children’s book because you are waiting for Audible to add to their collection, this is not the book for you. I would recommend the Graveyard book by Neil Gamin or anything by Pratchett or Colfer.

Even as adult when certain parts of the plot are quite transparent, it is a great lot of fun to watch it unfold. The character development is interesting and the new characters are really great additions. If you enjoy children's fantasy you won't want to miss this. Great for younger readers as well. My children are between 7 and 22 and I'm in my 50's. We all love Erec Rex!
