First, I want to say: What a great cover! It’s so unique and full of fun and this image perfectly reflects the vibe of this fabulous story!
Jane is not MAD. And, Jane is not your ordinary kind of girl. After an extended stay in an Asylum, Jane is ready to break free and return to Otherworld. However, after a year of being away, she finds that everything has changed.
Charles is part of Otherworld, a constant part. He is a gnome. But unfortunately he does not live up to the gnomish standards of reliability. Also, he is quite rude! And, I must say, unbearably funny!
This fun and exciting tale combines an old London with the magic of Otherworld, which lurks hidden around every corner if you know your way. There is murder, conspiracy, rioting and, do not forget most importantly, Communism! Mixed in this equally hilarious and intriguing story are the amazing creatures of fantasy: Vampires, Werewolves, Gnomes, Pixies, Bogarts, Redcaps and more.
Do yourself a favor and read this book. I personally had a blast and found that this lighthearted and yet poignant tale was a perfect read for this time period.
Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!!
