The Last Adventure of Constance Verity (Paperback)
Constance Verity is going to kill her fairy godmother. Why? She is sick of adventuring. Trotting the globe to exotic places is fine for a few years but for twenty? She needs a break from the unceasing stream of intrigues, escapes and near misses. Constance just wants a bit of normal in her life and the only way she can figure to do it is by getting rid of the seed of adventure lodged in her soul by her fairy godmother when she was just an infant.
If only things were just that easy…..
This book is fantastic! It takes all of the standard adventure books and cartoons like Johnny Quest, Venture Brothers and the like and shines a satirical light on them. Because Constance knows how ridiculous her life is, and has developed a fine tuned sense of sarcasm and sly humor to deal with her extraordinary life. When your birthday cake attacks you at your seventh birthday party – you do what you need to cope!
If you are looking for a fast and fun read, look no further! This book literally has it all - a strong female lead, monologuing villians, a corporeal-challanged fairy, a plucky sidekick, a ninja ex-boyfriend and secret conspiracies heaped on secret conspiracies! What’s not to like about this book? I can’t think of a single thing!— Amber
Constance Verity has been saving the world since she was seven, and she's sick of it. She sets off on one last adventure to reset her destiny and become the one thing she's never been: ordinary.
Ever since she was granted a wish at birth by her fairy godmother, Constance Verity has become the world's great adventurer. She is a master of martial arts, a keen detective, and possesses a collection of strange artifacts. Constance has spent the past twenty-eight years saving the world, and she's tired of it. All she wants is to work in an office and date a nice, normal guy. And she's figured a way out. The only problem is that saving the world is Constance's destiny. She's great at it, and there are forces at work to make sure she stays in the job.
Then again, it's also her destiny to have a glorious death.
