If you are up on all things Bubba thus far, then you know that his fey sister has gone missing, and when he, Skeeter, Amy, and Father Joe made their way into Fairy to iniate a rescue they were nabbed by Bubba's grandmother, Queen Mab. Mab, being Mab, opts to torture her grandson and his friends while brainwashing her daughter, Bubba's momma. This means our favorite quartet has to break out, battle their way through a castle full of dangers, break the enchantment on Bubba's estranged mother, and locate his sister. All without Bertha. Mab has taken Bubba's beloved blaster!
This novella is full of funny bits, and fantastic action scenes. In what other book series would you find a priest that is willing to do some dirty dancing or fire off one putrid butt bomb that burns out Bubba's nose hairs? Any continues to be the girl I always wanted to date, and Skeeter tries to keep everyone straight (metaphorically) as best he can. I really enjoy Hartness's writing style, the mixture of fun and adventure is always perfectly balanced and Bubba's voice is unique and distinctive among the passel of standard protagonists out there today.
One thing I will say is that I am enjoying the escalation in the quality of the book covers as the series progresses. The early book covers were funny and simple, but since the start of the introduction of the fairies into Bubba's life the artwork has just been phenomenal. I'd like to see this trend continue.
Solo continues to amaze me, and it throws me off when he actually uses his own voice instead of Bubba. He takes to the character so naturally that it feel like his speaks that way naturally. He continues to impress with his vocal skills, and giving each character their own distinctive voice, both male and female, so that when you hear them speaking you know who they are immediately. He also has some serious comedic timing, and is the only narrator I know that can tell you about some flatulence filling the air without making it come off as childish. I have said it before, and will continue to say it, Solo embodies Bubba in voice and spirit.
As far as things go, the story continues to impress and progress in a satisfying manner. I really can't wait to see what Hartness has up his sleeve next, and anticipate the final showdown between our man, Bubba, and Robin Goodfellow. I know it will be explosive and funny as hell, and will be something I don't want to miss. Neither should you! Go out and get this series from volume one all the way up till now, the ride will be like skateboarding on a rollercoaster track; going at breakneck speeds, facing unforeseen dangers, wrought with twists and turns, and maybe it will even through you for a loop and you won't even have a safety harness to keep you tucked in nice and safe. Don't wait. Don't miss out. Go and start the misadventures today!!
Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

This book is very much like the others from this author. The humor and narration keeps listeners from turning away however. John Solo is an amazing narrator with so many distinctive voices to match each character. He also is able to maintain those character voices from book to book. Well done!
