What a fabulous book! Firstly, I enjoyed it myself and was pleased to have the opportunity to share it with my daughter. It is written with such a dry humour that it appeals to adults and children alike. I loved the writing style and clever dialogue that kept me as hooked as my daughter.
Then there are the characters, how refreshing to break from the norm and have a demon as a main character! Now, I was a little worried, that a story of Hell and demons would be somewhat scary for a seven year old just before bedtime; I needn’t have worried. The demon in question was just like my daughter in one of her grouchiest moods, but even demons have a softer side hidden behind the scowls.
This first book sets the scene, introduces you to Jack Harper and shows what happens when you accidentally order a demon from Hell. As we got a little way into the story, I downloaded the next book in the series ‘Skycastle and the Demonic Incident in Chinatown‘, as we knew we would want to follow Jack and Brink the scowling demon’s adventures, as they escape the clutches of Hell’s Collector, in a magical flying Skycastle.
You can buy ‘Skycastle, the Demon, and Me‘ from Amazon.
