After finishing book 4 about two months ago, I took a short break. The books in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series are extremely long, complex, epic, and entertaining... quite heavy reading. Today I decided I had taken a long enough break and started reading book 5. With this book included, I have 10 left to go....



Fantasy fans MUST READ THIS SERIES

That's how I felt about John Landis's Book of Monsters since he catorized several things wrong.

For Johannes Cabal necromancing was vital to his work. His soul on the other hand seemed inconsequential and a small price to pay for the power to raise the dead. That is until a lack of soul proves to be impeding his research. Annoying really, something supposedly so insignificant having the audacity to create such an upset in his life. Thus the only remaining option is to go to the man, or rather Infernal Overlord in possession of his soul. Satan never was one to just relinquish a soul to anyone much less someone who barges into hell like he owns it! However, Satan has also never been known to refuse a bet, especially one stacked in his favor. A deal is made and Johannes has one year to collect a hundred souls with the use of a reincarnated carnival and his begrudging bloodsucking brother or forfeit his soul and his life to the almighty egomaniac downstairs.



Samuel Johnson thinks he's showing initiative when he decides to go trick or treating three days early. The Abernathys and their friends think they're just having a bit of fun to pass by an otherwise boring evening by reading from the Book of the Dead and unexpectedly opening up a portal to hell and setting free Satan's right hand man. Woman? Unfortunately for Samuel and his faithful dachshund Boswell, they see everything through the Abernathy's tiny basement window. The demon now disguised as the former Mrs. Abernathy begins plans to unleash an army of hell beasts to lead the way into Satan's long awaited hell on earth. Samuel however proves to be the wrench in her plans and thus the target of the second in command's fury. Will Samuel and Boswell rescue humanity from damnation with the unlikely help of Nurd the banished demon king of the wastelands and scourge of five deities? Stranger things have happened. Oh wait no they haven't. This may end badly.



Chesney Arnstruther never was a popular nor interesting man (Actuaries never are). Women rarely looked his way unless they felt his eyes on their breasts. On an unassuming night he finds himself in the midst of building a five sided poker table when he hits his thumb with the hammer, blood is spilled, and a jumble of nondescript utterences erupts from his mouth. Next thing he knows he's staring into the face of a demon claiming Chesney summoned it and will not leave till Chesney has signed his soul over to the head honcho downstairs. Chesney, who was raised by an overbearing, over zealous, Bible thumping mother, refuses the deal and through a series of mishaps and misunderstandings inadvertently sends hell on strike. This is a good thing right!? Without the little red guy on everyone's shoulder there's no longer any sin. Turns out sin was what was making the world go round and without it everyone is at a standstill lacking the motivation to do anything. With the help of a lawyer gone fire and brimstone TV evangelist a deal is struck that leaves Chesney's soul in tact and hell functioning more efficiently than ever. The best part of this deal is now Chesney has the help of a demon (who sounds like Al Capone and has a penchant for fine cigars and rum) to realize his life long dream to become one of the superheroes in his comic books. Thus the Actionary is born. Fighting criminals is great but will the newly acquired love interests prove to be more trouble than the bad guys?

The first half of the first book is very Lord of the Rings in form, but Jordan did that on purpose to get new readers more comfortable with the characters before going off into truly original and epic territory. Hope you enjoy them!

You want to be depressed while reading this but there's something about the quiet acceptance of the character's sad fate that keeps you from doing so.

I absolutely hated this book! Can't believe I finished it.
