The Lesser Swamp Gods of Little Dixie

Another adventure for Kotto that I just didn’t enjoy as much as the first book…

When he arrives at Little Dixie, you get these amazing and creepy corn men, who are equal parts funny and scary… but it mostly does away with the crazy over-the-top stuff in the first.

Kotto himself is more subdued than before; I assume because there is no Richards character to ground him, so he was made to tone it down a bit. While he was over much at times, he was always fun, and he just wasn’t here.

In the first book, I never knew what was coming next. Here, it just becomes a battle between good and evil. I was under the impression the hell stuff was just how people decided to describe it, lacking anything better. I didn’t realize it was meant to be literally hell and heaven. I found this to be disappointing.

With all the conspiracy stuff pushed aside, I wasn’t as interested. There were a few fun battles and lots of gore still, so I’m not outright hating it. I just didn’t like the new direction.

To sum it up, I’d like more crazy and fun conspiracy Kotto, and to heck with Warrior of Light Kotto.

*** Three out of Five Stars (Average)
