What happens when you enroll in a monster college and finally meet your bitter rival face to face? Riding stuff. Riding stuff happens.
The once elite College of United Monsters (C.U.M.) is still having financial troubles. In order to stay afloat, it has been forced to allow humans to register. Humans, in a monster school? Preposterous! Also, monsters are real and that was probably a bigger shock to the world than one school of them allowing humans to enroll.
Nape MacGuffin is a regular, ridiculous human. A student in the suddenly popular Historical Pottery Studies course, Nape finds himself facing off against his class’s biggest rivals: the students of Automobile Theory & Repair, who are convinced the pottery class is out to destroy them. Naturally, they have to get to the pottery students first. But, honestly—with a name like MacGuffin, you know the entire reason he’s in this story is to get kidnapped later on to serve as a plot device. You did know that…right?
It serves him right for having a punny name and attending monster college.
This series has continued to be an entertaining read, even if there are times I get confused about what is going on. This one had more jumping around than the first two so I had a harder time keeping up.
Nape and Sthenny seem to be rivals but quickly band together when Nape discovers a negative plan for Automobile shop. I didn’t really see these two as a couple though and felt they were just put together for the story. I wasn’t able to get into their connection like I could with the first two books.
The cover art is great and I liked the visuals from the story.
