I was excited to read Rise of the Souder Goddess, and it was well worth the wait. Rise of the Spider Goddess (The Prose Killer Chronicles) is the first novel Jim C. Hines ever wrote when he was 25. From the hilarious cover to the foreword apologising for the horror that awaits, you know you're in for a great time. Jim pokes fun at his own story, and there's good tips on writing. Bonus!

There's Mystery Science Theatre 3000-like hilarious comments thrown in too. I loved the asides on punctuation, grammar, plotting, world building and characterisation.

Spoilers ahead!

The bit that cracked me up the most was when the story *finally* explained the magic system and world building...in the epilogue. Go figure. XD

The story beginning and ending with Nakor the Purple watching sunsets was priceless. XD And the Pokemon theme song parody was utterly hilarious.

This book cheered me up and made me smile so much. I'm definitely happy I read this. :) I burst out laughing (with Jim, not at him) so many times, and had so much fun.

Rise of the Spider Goddess can be bought and downloaded as an e-book on Amazon and Kindle.
