Review: From first looking at this book it doesn't look like a particularly funny read; however, that is exactly what this is. Somehow Aaron Michael Ritchey was able to create the perfect combination of seriousness with humor to make this book enjoyable. It was a little hard to get into at the beginning because there wasn't much action, but as the book progressed I found it hard to put it down. The end of this book takes a major turn that makes it even more thrilling, The writing style is great and it's only 209 pages so you don't have to commit too much time to reading.
