Interview with Will Ritter Author of Jackaby + Giveaway

Jackaby

Since the first moment I saw the cover of Jackaby I became obsessed with this book and my need to read it. My expectations soared with the comparison to the shows Doctor Who and Sherlock and I couldn’t wait to get a copy and read. Because of Jon (Scott Reads It) I was able to get an advanced copy from BEA and I’m so pleased to say that I ended up loving this book, especially the characters. Ritter has created a cast that I’ll not be forgetting anytime soon as well as a strong plot that incorporates the supernatural with an old fashioned detective story.
