    What did you love best about Slay and Rescue?

    Fairy tales tend to lose their magic once you find that life is gritty. I enjoyed John Moore's way of breathing new life into them. He brought a contemporary touch to the classics while keeping it fun to read.

    "Kinda tiring"

    I like the idea- a story told from Prince Charming's POV, however, prince Charming is a horny teen and obsesses constantly about women and their physical attributes. I was bored. I think the writing is supposed to be funny and sometimes it was, but I gave up about the time Prince Charming got his quest from the evil queen. It was a little bored of the 'Johnny one note' quality of the writing.

    Story
    "Light and humorous."

    The heroic Prince Charming is famous all across the Twenty Kingdoms. He slays vicious dragons, defeats evil knights in single combat, outwits dastardly sorcerers and wizards, and rescues damsels in distress, and he does it with all the charm he was named for. The people love him. They should of course and this is the very reason his father sends him on these unending slay and rescue missions. It's great PR for the Kingdom. The big problem is that Prince Charming is beyond tired of being so, well, charming all the time. He just wants to get out of the public eye for a bit and to be able to have some fun like any normal 18 year old! Unfortunately for him he gets caught up in three more missions. He has to save a princess from her wicked stepmother, then save another princess who has lapsed into an enchanted sleep, and that is on top of searching for that girl he met at the ball who lost her glass slipper.

    This had a light and fun tone and was a pretty hilarious parody of fairytales like Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Snow White. John Moore filled his story with more than enough wit and satire to keep me amused throughout the whole tale. If I had a slight criticism of his style it was that his constant focus on sexuality came across as a bit juvenile at times. That said, it was all fairly tame.

    The story was actually fairly engaging. We got a little bit of intrigue, some romance, plenty of action, and tons of humor. Despite some characters flaws Charming and the rest of the characters were a likeable bunch who were easy to root for.

    I'm not always a fan of comedic fantasy, but John Moore seems to have hit on a blend of ridiculousness and regular storytelling that works for me. I'll be listening to the rest of the audios in this series for sure.

    Jake Lewis did a fantastic job with the audio. His voices were good, his comedic timing perfect, and he got the humor of the story which is always super important with this type of story!
