“How would you like to help me save the world?”

That was not a phrase that Beth McGill, college student and geek girl, had ever expected to hear, even on a Friday. But when Michiko, the teenage hero called the Monkey Queen, rescues Beth from an ogre, her life gets turned upside down. And when a mutual friend is kidnapped, Michiko and Beth will have to deal with faeries, hobgoblins, a ravenous troll and a sarcastic guinea pig to find him…and the dark masterminds behind the abduction.

It’ll be a weekend they’ll never forget…if they survive to see Monday morning.

***Shelley – #NerdGirlRed’s  Review***
This was the first story in The Monkey Queen series and it holds great promise. There is a little bit of something for everyone. Beth, the geeky college girl who feels a bit out of place, like no one gets her love for cosplay and all things geek doesn’t just let things happen to her. Her growth is evident throughout the story.  There are fairies, hobgoblins, trolls, wizards and much more. The main character, Michiko, is a new take on the Monkey King legends. She has a vivid personality that is easy to love and will engage younger readers ( 9+ ).  There is plenty of action and suspense as the girls try to solve the mystery. My favorite part of this story is the light hearted fun and upbeat, positive attitude Michiko brings. She is a serious butt kicking heroine when needed but a fun loving teen when she’s not trying to save the world (and sometimes she is saving the world with a happy smile on her face and joke on her tongue). I easily would recommend this to readers young and old who enjoy paranormal, superheroes, and mystery.
