#tommyvcancer Blog Tour! | Tommy V. Cancer | Book Review: Fangs – Vampire Spy Series!

Tommy V Cancer

Today I’m back with another post to highlight a fundraiser for a very special person, and that is Tommy Donbavand. Tommy is currently battling with cancer and because of this he’s had to cancel such events as school talks from his calendar. As you can imagine, this is a primary source of income for Tommy and his family and being unable to attend events such as these while fighting his illness is having a huge impact on his day to day life.

The purpose of this blog tour is to raise awareness of Tommy’s illness and help to raise funds to help him out. If you would like to donate and help out, here’s the links you’ll need for more information:

Book Blurb (via Goodreads):

Special Agent Fangs Enigma and his sidekick, werewolf Agent Puppy Brown, were recruited by secret intelligence agency MP1 (Monster Protection, 1st division) to stop the world’s super(natural) villains and monster criminals from realizing their evil plans. In Codename: The Tickler, MP1’s expensive mind-control technology, the Will Pill, has been stolen by an ogre named Snores. He is only a goon for hire, though – so who is the real culprit? Can Agents Enigma and Brown solve this ticklishcase or will the mysterious Tickler have the last laugh?

Fangs and Puppy are back in another adventure and this time, they’re headed to the circus!

When their fellow agent is kidnapped while trying to find out who wants to buy – and use – a mind-control device, Fangs and Puppy go undercover to try and work out what is really going on behind the scenes at a circus. The plot is bigger than even Fangs can imagine and they’re the only ones who can stop it from happening.

As Fangs and Puppy race against time to reveal the nefarious plot in action, there’s the usual Fangs puns and charm abound. As well as the expected action, there’s also more inventions from Cube thrown into the mix too, creatively getting the duo out of another sticky situation.

This series is such a delight to read. It’s easy and quick and it just grabs you from the word go. Children of all ages are sure to love the dynamic duo as much as I do. I know this is one series that I’ll be continuing, for sure.
