Really very enjoyable.
Need a hero? Are you a bargain hunter? Well you’ve come to the right place. In Cantrial you can hire heroes to complete your quests. Unfortunately for Peg Brickner, she finds herself in Cantrial quite unexpectedly and is unprepared for the creatures and monsters she encounters.
Coerced into completing a mission for a low-rate hero scout, Peg must travel with strange companions so that she may return to her own home on planet Earth. Along the way she finds bumps, and cuts, and bruises plus terrifying bitey creatures. But she also finds friendship, loyalty, and a new sense of self. There were definitely some warm and fuzzy moments amid the action scenes.
This was a delightful heroic adventure story – perfect for a summer read. Perfect for anyone who likes quirky stories, or stories where women find their own strength. Also, have you guys seen that preview for Teen Titans Go!? This reminds me a bit of that. Our band of “heroes” isn’t very strong or burly or talented, but they do have a lot of heart!
The writing was very good, the pacing was excellent. Sometimes Peg really bothered me with her whining, but she won me over in the end. I can not wait for Heroes for Hire #2. I don’t see it listed on Feldman’s author page on Goodreads, but I do hope it’s in the works! So, why not five coffee cups? Because I really do reserve the five cupper for books I find transcendent. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Happy reading everyone!
