The Beastly Bones

Beastly Bones (Jackaby, #2)Beastly Bones by William Ritter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Endearingly, Charmingly Weird. Can I just have some more?

The thing that keeps me coming back for more of William Ritter's Jackaby series, is the character and humor of Jackaby himself.

I love the light-hearted weirdness and the charmingly platonic friendship of Jackaby and Abigail.

In this novel, Abigail character fills out a bit and she gets to make use of her paleontology background. The paranormal world that Jackaby lives in becomes more colorful and the the threat of monster kittens with scales is utterly...horrific. (It's scarier than it sounds.)

Again, a bit predictable but still fun. Sometimes a book is fun to read because you know it's something you think you are giong to enjoy and you suspect the ending but choose to enjoy the twisty-turn delivery and mind of the author. That's what the Jackaby series is for me.

If you are looking for a feminist, paranormal, romance thriller, this isn't it. Based on some of the negative reviews I've read, that was a bit of the expectation.

But this is a good fit for me. It's pure and simple enjoyment of a fun story and fun characters with some fun twists and turns.

I'm coming back for more in Ghostly Echoes and happy to be catching up in the series.
