The Wrong Stuff
K’Barthan Trilogy: Part 2
By M.T. McGuire
Genre: Humor, Science Fiction, Adventure
The Pan, our fearless hero, has rescued the girl…well, almost, and now he has to finish the job. Like any good adventure, everything just grew more complicated. The Pan has saved Ruth, well…sort of. Now he has to keep Ruth the Chosen One saved and out of Lord Vernon’s clutches until they find the one destined to be her true love and ask him to please choose someone else. Snurd chases with laser and missile fire ensue, and several very bad, sometimes stupid choices (Sheesh, Ruth!) result in disaster; glorious disaster. Can Pan somehow woo Ruth, the chosen one, to forgive the trashing of her beloved London or the destruction of her life and any possibility of regaining it? Can he keep her out of Lord Vernon’s clutches long enough to find this mysterious new religious leader and get him to un-choose her? Will she let him? If he can, will she consider The Pan as an alternative?
MT McGuire has triumphed with another delightful installment to the K’Barthan trilogy. The Wrong Stuff is anything but wrong. Every good part of the first book, which I adored, has continued without any loss of awesomeness. Seriously, I LOVE it. I love the uncomfortable bumbling and the beautiful chivalry of the tale. I love the reality mixed with outrageous and hilarious fantasy. Don’t forget the awesome, goofy, delicious characters – I loved them all, even the bad guys (loved to hate). Even the side characters ooze the smooch-ability of the main characters.
Occasionally an author struggles with a second story and either loses the focus or can’t live up to that first glorious tale. MT didn’t fall victim to either problem. The story didn’t end with this book, and I didn’t want it to end, but I knew it was time and I just had to keep my cool until the next one comes out. (I get to read it before you do! Neener!) The story takes you out of words on a page and puts you there with this beautiful, outrageous tale.
You have to read this story and if you haven’t read the first one, I will have to pinch you, because it’s free on Kindle. The K’Barthan trilogy is the kind of writing that gets me excited about reading and inspires me to write!
