9780007545681: Chaos Descends (Darkmouth)

[Children's Fiction (Ages 8-12)]

Watch out! Finn faces more monsters than ever in Darkmouth: Chaos Descends, the third book in the tween fantasy series that Kirkus Reviews called ''Ghostbusters meets Percy Jackson as written by Terry Pratchett.'' Finn isn't even a full-fledged Legend Hunter yet, but he's already had to save the world -- twice. The Legends are planning their next attack and, of course, it's up to Finn to stop them. Too bad he'd rather be doing anything else. Perfect for fans of How to Train Your Dragon, this series is a hilarious and action-packed adventure that's filled with beasts of the winged, fanged, and hungry variety.

Andrew Scott is an Irish film, television, and stage actor. On stage, he is best known for his performance in A Girl in a Car with a Man, for which he won a Laurence Olivier Award. On television, his notable roles include his BAFTA Award-winning portrayal of arch-villain Jim Moriarty in Sherlock.

Review:

PRAISE FOR DARKMOUTH:
“Hegarty’s debut and the first of a projected series is Ghostbusters meets Percy Jackson as written by Terry Pratchett. Readers will be hunting for the sequel in short order.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Incredible. The next big thing.” (Eoin Colfer, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of Artemis Fowl)

“With a tone reminiscent of Terry Pratchett, Darkmouth has no shortage of off-kilter humor or imagination. Landing somewhere between the Percy Jackson series and the Edge Chronicles, this new series holds plenty of promise.” (ALA Booklist)

“Hegarty puts a fun spin on the monster-hunting trope, creating a sympathetic, underachieving hero who nevertheless rises to the occasion. Between the entertaining premise, the tongue-in-cheek humor, and the frequent moments of excitement and action, there’s plenty to enjoy in this promising series opener.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Hegarty creates a believable setting with its own history and character, which makes for an enjoyable read. The smooth writing and brisk plot keep the narrative moving along nicely.” (School Library Journal)

“Finn is sharply funny and not afraid to look dumb, excellent traits in the protagonist of a new series...Fans who have finished or moved on from the How to Train Your Dragon series will find this to be a logical next step.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“This well-imagined and often quite funny Irish import is a great antidote to boilerplate multivolume series that seem to retell the same tale over and over.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Danger and action abound. Series fans will encounter some surprises and happily await Finn’s next escapade.” (ALA Booklist)
