June Del Toro went on a wild flight in a super-rad solo episode.
Now get ready for the dynamic duo: its Quint and Dirk!
Picking up after the events of The Last Kids on Earth and the Doomsday Race, adventure abounds as the best buddies encounter new monsters and embark on a post-apocalyptic quest for the ages.
Yes, I know. The summary doesnt give much detail. Or any details besides saying that it stars Quint and Dirk on their own side adventure. Since June got her own book, I expected Quint and Dirk would get their own books somewhere down the line. I thought they would get their own separate book, but a buddy adventure is cool too.
Anyway, the storys overall plot is shown right in the title. Hero Quest. The story is basically a classic medieval fantasy quest where the heroes are hired by a village to slay a monster. A standard heros journey story template.
Personally, I enjoyed Quint and Dirks buddy adventure more than Junes solo adventure. I love the unlikely friendship between these two total opposites. They have grown quite close since Book 1, forming an almost brotherly bond.
I loved the new monsters. One is peppy and a telepath, while the other one reminded me of Gilderoy Lockhart from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Book 8 will be coming out this Fall, titled The Forbidden Fortress. This storys arc gets more intense with each book. I have no idea what direction this story is going. I just hope it doesnt get too elaborate. Nothing ruins a story more than an overly complicated, hard-to-follow plot.
