Note the page count on this, it's 81 pages, 10 of which are things like title page, foreword, about the author, excerpts from some of the authors other books, etc., which gives you about 70 pages of actual story. That kind of settles in as the first one or two chapters of an actual book, which I assume is then completed by the rest of the series. There's really no sense of conclusion here, you're definitely being set up for the next "book" (what I think would be more accurately described as a chapter.) For me it felt like the write up of someone's 3 hour D&D session with the expectation that the story would continue the next time.
That being said, it's well written. Definitely none of the awful grammar or spelling that you see in a lot of titles like this, the presentation is tight. The plot is clever, kind of a fantasy version of Suicide Squad with a big cartoon vibe to it, Timmy the Necromancer and his apprentice Katie and friends, characters are always tweaking each others noses and putting each other in headlocks and stuff, kind of a Three Stooges feel for those who might remember that. Lighthearted and not a bad read if you're cool with that kind of thing, but like I said... very short and incomplete. I really was expecting more but when I think about it I paid my $2 and got my sample so I can't complain too much.
