The book starts out with a slave named Clyde. He is in his Master's yard when the table explodes. He tells Clyde to hide for three weeks. Clyde looks back and sees some mysterious men around his master. He hides in the cellar for six months. When he comes out he sees a seven foot hairy thing with horns and a pug face. He makes a deal to go avenge the master when they get hit with bad luck left and right. Have fun!
I think the book is very good. If you want a book that has a lot of suspense, then this is the book for you.
