There is so much to love about the Saga series, the artwork is stunning, the world is really creative and I've fallen in love with so many of the characters. In this volume Alana and Marco decide to track down their favourite author, D Oswald Heist, the man who wrote the romance novel that kickstarted their relationship. Alana hopes that Heist will have some kind of advice to offer them about how to proceed now that Hazel has been born and Marco is so lost after events in the previous book that he's just happy to have any kind of plan of action. Klara isn't about to let whats left of her family out of her sight and of course their ghostly babysitter Izabel is coming along for the ride.

I really enjoyed getting to meet Heist, his character gave the authors the opportunity to add lots of jokes about writers and little bits that bookworms will love like Alana going crazy when she sees Heist's library and the whole family hanging out reading together. Of course nothing is simple with this group so its not all rest and relaxation but you'll have to read the book for yourself to find out what else they get up to. We also follow The Will and his companions as they continue their search for our favourite fugitives. There are a couple of really sweet moments between Lying Cat and Slave Girl (who finally gets a proper name!) and I really enjoyed the developing relationship between The Will and Gwendolyn. This series has quickly become one of my favourites and I can't wait to read the next instalment!

As always I'll finish off my review with a couple of my favourite scenes:

I'm sure any book blogger can totally relate to this conversation

Gwendolyn does not like being taken by surprise!
