In some ways, 107 and 106 are similar: unlikely scenarios and characters thrown into a highly imaginative world. This one, I like! Much more. Just because it fits my taste better — there is the slightly dark, somewhat melancholy tone blended with a lot of very ironic and somewhat cynical humor. Unlikely and reluctant heroes tend to also win my heart. First book in a series, this book did not end happily but that is oddly satisfying and also quite in keeping with the rest of the book. It promises a great series… I do hope the sequels are planned out, being written, and will maintain the same literary quality as this first title!
