Endangered Species by Vaulte Kamish ****

Are you missing Terry Pratchett since his unfortunate health challenges have slowed the wonderful stream of Discworld Novels? Well you might enjoy Endangered Species by Vaulte Kamish with a similar mixture of off-beat humor, unreality, and topical satire.

The book is full of unexpected turns,
He tried anything to buck her off - twisting, flapping, dropping to the ground, the Marcarena.
and surprises,
... he bit her in the crotch. She squealed and let go.

But what is the excuse for this chaos and mayhem? A global cooking contest with fame, fortune, and the future of the planet at stake. The cooks all searching for exotic tastes from endangered animals like ...
Two velocarabbits, a snaggle-toothed platypus, a vulture penguin, albino air leeches, and an Anaerobic Tiger-tailed Viper!

As promised, a fun adventure in hyperbole and social commentary.

I won a copy of this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway on August 1, 2013.
