He reminds me of grubbs too.^-^ It’s hard to compare it with The Saga and The Demonata, because TTE is one novel. But it’s a very good book.

It’s good for a stand alone book but series are obviously gonna be better. You think you’ve seen the last of a character then they pop up again so it keeps you on your toes so to speak

Its a good book. But not as good as The Demonta or The Saga of Larten Crepsley.

no.  I think the demonata series is better.  I’m not so sure about the Cirque Du Freak, though.  Here is the truth about them…  I didn’t read them.  Are they good??
