this was an unplanned read. a librarian friend of mine recommended it ages ago, and while it is a bit on the younger side of YA, it was a delightful, fun read.
about a boy who discovers he plays a part in a larger mythos, the narrator here is a bit slow at first, and, in my opinion, asks entirely too many questions. but he is likeable and funny, so that kept me engaged.
i enjoyed the interwoven mythology, despite the fact that i have a rather notorious hatred of all things historical fiction (i'm looking at you, philipa gregory!).
all in all, this is a delightful book, and i look forward to reading the rest of the series.
probable next read: lost at sea: the jon ronson mysteries by jon ronson
