Nikolas and Co: A Creature Most Foul by Kevin McGill (Review of First 100 pages)

Nick wants one thing, only one thing, and that is to go home. He has had enough of living with drones and a mum and dad who aren't normal, he wants to go back to his home planet. So when his Grand turns up after a mysterious incident involving his parents and tells him everything about his real life, Nick suddenly finds himself with a destiny greater than he had ever imagined...

Genre: Fantasy
Recommended Age: 12+
Publishers/Source: Aero Studios
Release Date: 15 September 2011
Notes: First 130 pages (approx.) reviewed
Rating: 4/5

I liked it. Fantasy and adventure are my two favourite genres so when I figured that this novel had meshed the two of them together, well my opinion was set.
There are a lot of characters in this book and at the start of the book I was wondering if that would be a problem but after a while I began to remember who was who and what their personalities were like. All the characters have very different personalities which I found a good quality because you get to see how they handle certain situations. I haven't got a favourite character because I was reviewing only part of the book which didn't give me enough time to find one.
If I had to critisize this novel then I would say I was a little confused at a part near the beginning but overall I did enjoy this book and would happily read the next part. The book might be a little fast paced for some people but I actually liked the pace. It never spent three chapters to set the scene, it introduced you to the characters and then went straight into the adventure.

YOU ARE BEYOND AMAZING! Thank you so freakin' much for commenting! Logging on and seeing that there is a new comment on my post is just one of the nicest feelings ever - I'm overcome by all the feels, and get that warm, fuzzy feeling inside of me. (Y'know, the one that you get when you see a book. Or a big bar of chocolate. Or a unicorn.)

I will be replying to your comment as quickly as I can - so check back if you want to see my response or have asked a question etc. - and I will also be returning the favour on your own blog, if you have one! What's life in the blogosphere without some comment love?!

Again, huge thanks! *tackle hugs* & I hope you have a fabulous day! :)
