Publisher's Summary

For John Charming, living the dream just became a nightmare. Someone, somewhere, is reading a magic book that is reading them right back. Real life is becoming a fairytale: high school students are turning, quite literally, into zombies, subway workers into dwarves, drug addicts into vampires.

John Charming and his motley band of monster hunters are racing to find the villain of this story, following the yellow brick road through a not so wonderful wonderland. And if they can't find Reader Zero before the book is closed, there won't be a happily ever after again.

another fun listen in the series

I have really enjoyed the main character's humor and attitude throughout the series and this book does not disappoint.

I love these books!

This book feels long and rewarding. It spends a lot of time debating g who is good or evil, it likes to take the morality of the characters then flips it over. The HEA doesn't exactly end where you want, but it's still there. I was convinced this would be the last book several times. It ends in such a way that maybe there will be another book or two. That makes me happy.

Not my favorite Charming Novel

While these books are normally fun and interesting, this one was hard to finish at times. The primary antogonists being people reading and writing a book had something to do with it. There was too much loose stuff happening that it felt like there were no rules anymore and disbelief settled in heavily. I hope the next book returns to a more normal storyline.

5 stars

As always John is the anti charming hero. He and Sig save the day and keep the monsters at bay. I like this series. It has the right balance of humor, action and mystery. I look forward to the next book.

Great listen

This story has a lot of great directives for the main character John including one major plot point that drives the story and close to 4 or so other sub plots this is not the last book once you get to the end their is enough hints dropped that the story is not over yet
If you enjoyed the other books then you will likely enjoy this one
Spoiler
Sig and John stay together
No one from main cast dies though you might wish they did (New characters who are kind of main)
John and Sig are no more dower then usual
There is a dragon in this book
That's all I'll say on spoilers. Cause. I want you to listen to book
