Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hegarty puts a fun spin on the monster-hunting trope, creating a sympathetic, underachieving hero who nevertheless rises to the occasion. Between the entertaining premise, the tongue-in-cheek humor, and the frequent moments of excitement and action, there’s plenty to enjoy in this promising series opener.” Publishers Weekly
“The smooth writing and brisk plot keep the narrative moving along nicely, while Hegarty’s writing style maintains a light and funny tone, despite the challenges that Finn must face. An amusing read that works well for fantasy lovers who enjoy lighter fare.” School Library Journal
“With a tone reminiscent of Terry Pratchett’s work, Darkmouth: The Legends Begin has no shortage of off-kilter humor or imagination. Landing somewhere between the Percy Jackson series and the Edge Chronicles, this new series holds plenty of promise.” Booklist
“Hegarty’s debut and the first of a projected series is Ghostbusters meets Percy Jackson as written by Terry Pratchett…Delightful Irish flavor…Readers will be hunting for the sequel in short order.” Kirkus Reviews
