Out of Texas 2 : Chariots of the Texans Reviews
Hilarious parody of Indiana Jones and comic book heroes. J-man (a cat who changed into a person) goes on trip to find lost city of Moe Town. He meets chief's daughter Watta-Setta-Nakas. :-) He rescues the frozen turkey-god Melagris (Mighty Thor), battles Santa Claus, and discovers the tomb of the Viking Mummy From Outer Space. Back home, J-man plays bodyguard to visiting Filipina Princess. The fickle princess is accurately portrayed. He meets a pulp-era crimefighter Damask (Shadow/Spider) and a superhero outfit from Idaho called Special Services (Fantastic Four). The princess is kidnapped by the Eyes of Texas (ZZ Top) and J-man has to stop them from starting a war. There is a lot of funny stuff between J-man and his boss. The ending is sad and tender.
This book is soooo funny. Which makes it unfair that the ending is so sad. Mr. Hold has a handful of fans who review his work, but he deserves to have many more. Maybe he has a silent cult following who read his work but keep it to themself. If anyone reads this review, you need to spread the word about this author.
Despite the slang, and a lot of informal words? This definitely reads like a James Hold book.I believe what makes a great series, is the ability of the author to convince his readers of reading the next book, and this one clearly hooked me to the next book in the series.
