Bang Goes a Troll (An Awfully Beastly Business) Reviews
This is the third book in "An Awfully Beastly Business" series. I didn't read the first two books, but received this copy through the Amazon Vine program. It was an okay book and is meant for a young audience. It would be fine to start with this book, the authors provided enough backstory that you don't need to read the previous two books to figure out what is going on.
This is the story of a young werewolf named Ulf, who was rescued and brought to the RSPCB (like the ASPCA in our world). There they take care of the beastly monsters of the world since it's now illegal to hunt them. Ulf, who is considered a beast himself, helps out but lived at the Farraway Hall which is the main headquarters of the RSPCB. The adventure takes them to stop the villian of this series of books, Baron Marackai who is hunting trolls. (ahem, they truly show that humans can be monsters in this by the evilness of the Baron).
I got this book for my 6th grade son, per the reading levels on the product page. But when I read it first - for this review - I was very surprised by the level of writing. As others have said, it's extremely simplistic and dumbed down. By that I mean both that the plot is simple - there are no layers (this is no Lightning Thief series... make no mistake), and also that the language itself is pretty young. I would estimate that any second grader could easily read this book.
