Book Review: Nikolas and Company, The Merman and the Moon Forgotten by Kevin McGill
Nothing is what it seems. Merpeople riding carriages and waltzing about on land with automaton legs, cities crying out to their stewards of impending dangers while a dangerous virus hits the countryside where the ill are sent to places for organ harvesting. This is the world where 14 year-old Nick lives and all he wants to do is go back to the moon.
I have to admit, before I could snuggle up under my blankies with this fantastical book, my son beat me to it. He read it in a single day and raved. I had to see what was up.
Kevin McGill has a refreshingly fresh perspective in world-building and I enjoyed the depths he took his character development as well. I enjoyed the jaunty dialogue the characters shared as well as the dark villains that had hunted poor Nick.
This is a quick read that had me wanting more.
