The Magnificent Flying Baron Estate by Eric Bower (Tuesday Intros & Teaser Tuesday)

Once I finished Rachel McMillan's The White Feather Murders (Tuesday's teaser post has been updated with my ramble), I needed something a bit more lighthearted and decided that Eric Bower's middle grade historical fantasy/adventure/western/steampunk/mystery/whatever would be it. I initially nabbed The Magnificent Flying Baron Estate off of NetGalley for John, but since he's currently wrapped up in something else he's been reading, I decided to hop on it first. It sounded too good to pass up! Happily, it was just the comic relief I was in need of. It's clever and funny and I'm fairly certain that my son is going to adore it ... and then he'll likely recommend it to his friends (boys and girls as it's got something for everyone ... at least for the younger "everyone"s). It's not as ageless as some "middle grade" books are (*cough*Robin Stevens*cough*), but it has been a bit of fun to almost take my mind off of the heartbreak of finishing one of my favorite series.
"First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros" is from the first paragraph or two of a book being read now (or in the future) and is hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea. "Teaser Tuesday" at The Purple Booker asks for a random line or two from anywhere in the book currently being read.
