Book Review: The Nasties of Nastgant Swamp

The Nasties of Nastgant Swamp by Laura DiNovis Berry

The Nasties of Nastgant Swamp: A Story of Antyfas
by Laura DiNovis Berry (Goodreads Author)

4 out of 5 stars

In this second story from the world of Antyfas, we follow Cristiano’s little brother, Tino. He is waiting for his brother to come home from visiting Dusbar College. They are planning a belated birthday party, and Tino is very excited for his favorite dessert, peach pie. Just as the guests are arriving, Tino receives a party invitation from a gnome, and decides that he would rather go to a bigger party with the gnomes. But Tino gets more than he bargained for with the gnomes, and it’s up to Cristiano to save his brother!

I liked this short story so much! I enjoyed learning more about the world of Antyfas, and all the different magical creatures that live there. The world-building is so imaginative and fun! There are gnomes, fairies, trolls, and a magical chicken that is part gryphon.

The writing style is so hilarious and charming! I was laughing and chuckling through most of the story!

In the first book of this series, I was a little disappointed in the plot structure. But this book has a great plot with an exciting battle at the end, and I loved how the characters join together to defeat the bad guys. They all have their own strengths and they are quite cunning in using their magic in unique ways.
