Sometimes adventure knocks. Other times, it kicks the door in.

"Dearest Alexandria and Ozymandias,

If you are reading this, I have perished. My demise likely involved some manner of spiked pit or curiously fanged beast, so it’s doubtful I suffered long. Do not try to find me - the path is too perilous, and I am lost to the mortal plane."

When Alex and Ozzie read their grandfather’s latest “death” letter, they barely blink. Dying six times in two years has to be a record, even for an explorer as incompetent as Sir Quidby Forsythe III.

Faster than you can say “kidnapped by a giant, glowing lizard,” the Forsythe twins are dragged into a world of ancient prophecies, sarcastic swords of legend, mutant slime beasts, and a growing awareness their grandfather might be the greatest explorer in history.

With Skhaar the Annihilator hot on their trail, Ozzie and Alex must solve the mystery of Sir Quidby’s disappearance before they become the final victims of the Forsythe Curse.

What I liked: Debunked is a debut young adult fantasy that takes inspiration from Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, and the author's unique blend of adventure. We follow the unbelievable journey of two twins whose uncle routinely sends them death letters, to the point where they are unsure if they should believe he is dead or alive. The humor within the pages of this novel made me laugh out loud and was the perfect fit for the quirkiness of this story. Like most new worlds in the first book, you will find that you need to take some time to learn how the world works, and the best way to do that is correct, along with the clueless characters pulled into the new world.
Ozzie and Alex are twins and are balanced well, with one being the adventurer and the other being more on the quiet and awkward side. The side characters are great support, along with a snarky sword. It was a delight to read.
Final Verdict:
All in all, if you like a bit of a chaotic adventure and enjoy the works of terry and Douglas Adams, this will be an excellent treat for you.
