Illmoor Chronicles, The: The Yowler Foul-Up - Book Two (Illmoor Chronicles)
by David Lee Stone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Title : The Yowler Foul-Up
Author : David Lee Stone
Pages : 289
Series : The Illmoor Chronicles

The second adventure in the Illmoor Chronicles trilogy finds Illmoor in peril once again...but this new menace is more deadly than the rat infestation that plagued the city, and more diabolical than even the dark magic could imagine. The Yowler Brotherhood has existed for centuries in the alleyways and shadows of Illmoor. But now, with an evil new magic, they will emerge from the shadows, descend from their rooftop recluse, and destroy anyone that stands in the way of their complete domination of Illmoor.

My thoughts on this book :

Another book of the hilarious adventure in Illmoor Chronicles. I really liked the misfortunes of Jimmy Quickstint and his accidental stint of heroism together with the ousted Duke of Dullitch who turned leaf in this adventure. Everything was crazy again! I can't imagine a gnome as an assassin and it really made me laugh hard. Plus the loftwing (half-vampire) investigator who was the most reliable person here in the deranged party. And funny (or hopeless) characters for sidekicks. This time, it's solving crime, so it's different from the first book. But because of the witty words of the author, it was insane everywhere!

It was an easy-read and funny adventure. Since the Lord of Dullitch was decent this time, it has a happy ending and I am seeing a future for the corrupted, thief-infested Dullitch. I'm so much looking forward to read the 3rd book!
