What would you do if you found an evil dwarf in your bathtub?
In Robert Darkly's case, you scream like a girl. And then you get taken on a journey to an entirely different world living just on the other side of our own reality - a world where fairy tales are real but not in the way we've come to expect them.
The aforementioned dwarf, Rumpelstiltskin, has escaped the tower prison of Thiside determined to finish the sinister plot he started so many years ago. Robert Darkly, oblivious that he is the son of the Mad Hatter, must partner with the mysterious "Agency" to pursue Rumpelstiltskin across our world and the world of Thiside and uncover the treacherous secret that threatens to throw both realities into eternal chaos.
Pleasantly surprised by this book. Not at all what I expected and I totally enjoyed listening. It took some getting used to the narrator's style of reading every sentence so heavily. Sometimes I wished she would lighten up just a tad. Looking forward to see what happens next.
I really enjoyed this story. It's a great mix of fantasy and humor. I will never look at a gnome the same way again :-)
