Ludlow Lost (Osgoode Odyssey #1) by Kate Robinson Dunne

Ludlow Lost (Osgoode Odyssey #1)
From GoodReads:
If you're reading this, you've probably never had the bad fortune to be kidnapped and held captive by creatures human beings don't believe in. 
Ludlow Osgoode has not been as lucky as you.
A Kirkus Indie Book of the Month (August 2017)
From Amazon:
This first book in Kate Robinson Dunne's Osgoode Odyssey introduces readers to Ludlow Osgoode and an assortment of creatures human beings don't believe in.
A few interesting facts about these creatures...
  1. Banshees are not known for their ability to nurse children back ot health and are definitely not qualified to prescribe medication.

The goblins were definitely my favorite! They were hilarious!

This book reminded me a little bit of Coraline (the book, not the movie. I haven't seen the movie, but I would like to.). It was a little dar

I really don't know what else to say about this book without giving away spoilers...

Overall, this was a great book! I definitely recommend it for all ages! 

My only problem is how long I'm going to have to wait to read the sequel! 

I received a copy of this book from the publishers, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
