A monstrously funny debut from the new star of middle-grade adventure.
They're coming! Legends (also known as terrifying, human-eating monsters) have invaded the town of Darkmouth and aim to conquer the world. But don't panic! The last remaining Legend Hunter--Finn--will protect us.
Finn: twelve years old, loves animals, not a natural fighter but tries really, really hard, and we all know good intentions are the best weapons against a hungry Minotaur, right? On second thought, panic. Panic now!

Critic reviews

"Shane Hegarty explodes into the fantasy universe with Darkmouth. An incredible debut. Hilarious and exciting. Terrifying and heart-stopping. Everything a great fantasy series should be. The next big thing is here." (Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl)
"Believe the hype. The relationship between the young hero and his father is touching and real. There are touches of Ghostbusters, along with some Bond-like gadgets, plus a rather Dickensian setting (the mist-swirling town of Darkmouth). A stunning fantasy adventure." (Sarah Webb)

Great story

Finn is a Legend Hunter, or rather he will be someday... hopefully. However, at the moment Finn is struggling just to get the basics right and his dad is getting frustrated. At the same time, the monster attacks are getting worse, more and more portals are opening up. However, Finn has made his first friend.

A great story that introduces to a very different image of mythical creatures that often gets lots in today's storytelling. They are real, they are very very dangerous and you are tasty. A good story with some self-awareness and growth but they don't make it the biggest part of the story. A lot of action and calamity.

Will admit that the quality is not great for car journey's as often too quiet followed by shouting so often either couldn't hear what was going on or deafened.

Great for fans of how to train your dragon.

I'd say this is aimed at the young end of 9-12. Great for adventure fans who like a bit of humour. The narrator is fantastic.
