Today is my stop on the Barnabas Tew and the Case of the Nine Worlds blog tour. You can read my review of the first novel, here.
Hold your flying horses!
Barnabas and Wilfred, two earnest but bumbling Victorian detectives, travel through the Nine Worlds of Norse mythology, trying to stave off the impending end of the world, an event which the locals call “Ragnarok”. This time around, however, the intrepid twosome has some help: a brave Viking seer named Brynhild and her flying horse.
Can the two plucky detectives and the fearsome Brynhild outwit those who would bring about Ragnarok? Will they survive the harsh conditions and terrifying creatures of the Norse afterlife? Will they save the world…again?
Barnabas and Wilfred are at it again and I absolutely love these two. This time they need to ban together to solve a mystery in the world of Norse mythology. I actually think this book is a step up from the first novel, and I was a huge fan of the first. Columbkill Noonan’s writing is fantastic, yet again with vivid descriptions, fantastic characters and all the humor I was hoping for this time around!
The mystery is complex, and every place or person Barnabas and Wilfred come across gives the reader a chance to laugh as they manage their way through the strange encounters. Of course, it wouldn’t be a fun novel without mistakes being made, but Barnabas and Wilfred are able to press on. You’ll have to read to find out what happens.
I highly recommend this comedic, cozy mystery with two unique and entertaining characters. I highly recommend reading the first novel before delving into this one because this picks up right after those events.
