Amazing Maddock Tale. This book has a foreward by the author where he speaks of seeking to create an enjoyable tale for fans of this long running series while also wanting to give people new to the series a “book 0” to start with that reflects more of his current writing style, and he achieves both of those objectives spectacularly. If you’ve never read a Maddock Adventure before, this one is truly a good place to start and a good idea of what you’re in store for throughout the rest of the series and surrounding universe. If you’re a long time fan, this book is one that sets in motion a few things while also allowing some possibilities for things to come. Truly a fun, action packed adventure, and very much recommended.
