    This book sounded like such a short, quirky and fun read that I couldn’t resist. Well, it is short (the title is almost longer than the book) and it most definitely is quirky, but sadly the level of fun didn’t quite live up to my expectations. Actually, it overdid everything and felt like it was trying too hard for the most part.Everything starts off quite well with Alex standing on top of the pyramid wondering quite where her holiday went wrong. The talking cat is a bit odd – especially a [...]

    I received a free copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Great timing on this release, following the national decree that homosexual marriage is legal and recognized.This was a cute and quick read. There were a lot of elements brought to the story that I was not sure would work; I was afraid it would be too full of details and side stories to make sense in the end. Although, I must say Jamie Brindle was able to tie everything together really well. At first, my only [...]

    *review given in exchange for ARC from Netgalley*A very funny story about a trans secret agent in a conservative kingdom, a talking cat, a flamboyant sea monster, and a gay Prince.Alex starts her story tied up as a human sacrifice, and things get more interesting from there. The monster who comes to take her is more interested in his own appearance and love life than in eating her- which makes their conversations highly amusing. The scenes with the Prince are funny as well, as he tries to figure [...]

    A fun combination of characters and personalities that made for some amazing interactions. A sarcastic, secretive cat, a giant gay monster and a woman who just wants a holiday. A fun book with the occasional overpressurisation on equality throughout made it hard reading occasionally. However I loved the theme and wish I could have seen more of the characters.

    FiveStarsWhat can I say, I loved this book. From the outset I found myself smiling at the imagery and the caustic remarks by the cat. I know a speaking cat, but somehow it all felt so normal. Well not exactly normal, this whole book and the setting is completely bizarre.You enter a wonderland full of unusual creatures, colourful, weird situations. Along with modern references and unconventional off the wall comments this book from beginning to end is like no other. It is well written sparks the [...]

    This story will take about 25 minutes to read and you'll spend about half of that time alternating between the thoughts of "This is cute" and "What the hell am I reading?" First Alex is a human sacrifice, then you find out she's not really human she has a talking cat and toss in a love sick sea monster and things will get more weird I would give it a 2.5 I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either it was interesting

    Did not finish. Way, way, way, too "funny" for me, in an awkward, forced kind of way. I'd much rather just read an interesting story, which this one couldn't be while it was trying so hard to be witty. Maybe this style is good for other people? But really not my thing.

    It was a quirky, campy short with diverse characters and a humorous twist on a classic trope. I liked it, but I can't say much more than that.
