Book Review: Jackaby (Jackaby #1)

Dear reader I just finished reading “Jackaby” book #1 in the “Jackaby” series by William Ritter. I picked up this book in the Nook store on my tablet because it seemed interesting and it was on sale for $1.99. My personal review of the book is as follows:

I love characters so much, one of my personal favorite scenes from the book was when the lady punches “Jackaby” in the face after she thinks that he’s repeatedly insulated her for being “just a lady” and “not special”.

I personally was a little lost/confused with a few elements the lead up to how the “bad guy” gets caught, I picked up the plot threads again pretty quickly once he is caught and you get told his background; I enjoyed how certain mythology was used it felt “realistic” /”believable” to the storyline as a whole. I think that if you are a fan of “Sherlock Holmes” like stories with a magical twist than you’ll probably really like this book.

I can’t wait to see what happens with “Jackaby” and everyone else, I will be downloading the next book in the Nook store on my tablet as soon as I’ve finished posting this review. Overall I personally rate this book an 8 and a half out of 10. Happy reading dear reader ?.  Please like and share this review if you like it doing so helps me to get approved by publishers and authors for future books as well as helping others to find my reviews ♡.
