Lovable, quiet, unintentional detective who has a pet ladybug named Terfle. He just seems so real, even though he's Leggi tutto
Although not literary masterpieces, the Hermux Tantamoq Adventures are entertaining and fun. An unlikely detective combats against a beauty tycoon used to getting what she wants. The characters are enjoyable and keep you reading. Good to read when you are in the mood for a fluff book.

Having retrieved the famed King's Delight, Hermux looks forward to taking a breather, but the world seems to have other plans when F Leggi tutto
A sweet sendup of show business with a good dramatic reveal (Hoeye sure does love his disguises) and more vivid descriptions of show business. The novel suffers, imo, from demoting Linka from fellow adventurer to mostly offscreen love interest, but more Terfle is always welcome!
