Book Review: EPIC: Legacy by Justin Osborne

Epic: Legacy is the first book in a terrific fantasy series. Deacon McTaggart has been sent to Scotland to live with his uncle because of strange happenings on Earth. What he doesn't know is that even weirder things are going to occur and his life will take a whole new turn.
I really liked all the characters in this book. They have little quirks but they are interesting. The story itself is fast-paced and the world-building is detailed and absorbing. There are aspects of Celtic mythology incorporated and I always like that aspect. This is also a book in which I laughed out loud many times as there are many funny moments (I know it looks like crazy old lady but I adore books that tell a story but can make me laugh).
Now the reason I made this four star is because of my inner Grammar Nazi. The problem is punctuation and run-on sentences. But I will say (and this is unusual for me) that it didn't interfere with the storytelling much. If I have to keep going back to understand a sentence too many times, I'll put the book down. In this case I still found the book readable although I had some twinges. But the story is totally worth it. I've already downloaded the second book and I'm looking forward to the third book in this series. I heartily recommend this book to anyone looking for a fantasy romp.
