Percival Gynt and the Conspiracy of Days by Drew Melbourne
I’d highly recommend this to all fans of Douglas Adams. It does veer into darker, gruesome territory at times, but maintains a fairly light, humorous tone anyway. That said, this is definitely a book you need to pay close attention to. Don’t make the mistake that I did and try to read it when you’re very tired, distracted, or on a bus packed with boisterous private school kids, because you will get confused and have to re-read large chunks. This is a book to give undivided attention to.
