Review: Stiltskin, Andrew Buckley

*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review*
Stiltskin, Andrew Buckley
What would you do if you found an evil dwarf in your bathtub?
In Robert Darkly’s case you scream like a girl… and then you get taken on a journey to an entirely different world living just on the other side of our own reality; a world where fairy tales are real but not in the way we’ve come to expect them.
The aforementioned dwarf, Rumpelstiltskin, has escaped the Tower prison of Thiside determined to finish the sinister plot he started so many years ago.
Robert Darkly, oblivious that he is the son of the Mad Hatter, must partner with the mysterious ‘Agency’ to pursue Rumpelstiltskin across our world and the world of Thiside and uncover the treacherous secret that threatens to throw both realities into eternal chaos.

Andrew Buckley was born in Manchester. As a child he wrote a story about a big blue dinosaur which got awarded by his elementary teacher with a gold star.
In 1997 he moved to Canada where he attended the Vancouver Film School’s Writing for Film and Television program where he graduated with excellence.
After pitching and developing several screenplay projects for film and television he worked in marketing and public relations for several years before venturing into a number of content writing contracts. During this time he abandoned screenwriting altogether and began writing his first novel.
Andrew lives in the Okanagan Valley, BC with his wife, children and pets.

I am not sure how I can review this book without giving to much away. I will start with a warning... If you love cute and pink fairy tales with pretty princesses and prince charming do not read this book. You will be having nightmares after reading 10 pages.
Robert Darkly is a bit clumsy and gets confused easily. Anything that can go wrong will go wrong but Robert never understands what exactly happened. Lily is the total opposite though she might had some help with getting that handy, smart and strong. All characters in this book are one big cliché but the story is going so fast and it is all so obvious it does not get the time to get annoying.
Told from different points of view giving you all kind of opinion about the different creatures in this book. While the whole mystery unravels there are a lot of surprises and funny developments.
A great laugh and remember not to take is serious!

This sounds like it could be entertaining! Is it YA or kids or is it for adults?

That might be the best book synopsis EVER.

The synopsis really makes me interested in this book. I see you say it's adult, but when I look at the cover I thought it was children's fiction or YA. LOL I need to check this out.

I like the concept behind this book! I also thought like Mel that this wasn't an adult book, but I guess it is! Cool!
