Book Review: The Dark Missions of Edgar Brim by Shane Peacock

The Dark Missions of Edgar Brim

The Dark Missions of Edgar Brim sounded amazing – like one of those books that make you think “hey, this is going to be one of my favorites!”

The Dark Missions of Edgar Brim

It isn’t one of my favorites but it was okay. Here’s why:

First of all, this book was too long. The middle dragged on and on filling me with dread every time I had to read it. There was too much waiting for the action. I get it, you need to build up the story but it was too much build up. We don’t need to go through every little bit of Edgar Brim’s time at the College. Just pull out the main points and get on with it. Thankfully, the beginning and ending were fantastic. I would tell you why but- spoilers!

The characters were awesome, especially Edgar. Learning about Edgar as a kid and then seeing him when he’s older made the journey worthwhile!  

The Verdict on The Dark Missions of Edgar Brim

Awesome descriptions, fascinating characters, a long middle, and well-crafted beginning and ending adds up to a pretty good book. I would recommend this for sure but carefully include that the middle is a little drawn out. Besides that, I would love to read the next book in the trilogy!
