Diana Gabaldon, New York Times best-selling author of the immensely popular Outlander series, teams up with son Samuel Sykes to pen this supremely funny satire on religion, sexism, and power. A decidedly unusual pairing, half-breed sorceress Armecia and her constantly stoned sidekick, Sir Leonard of Savhael, join forces with a cowardly church vassal and a giantess posing as a nun. Their quest? To catch and kill Zeigfried, a fiery - if not too fearsome - dragon.

Short and amusing story. Sort of a zombie parody. The word grimace was used frequently and the narrator just could not say the word correctly. She kept saying gri-MĀCE with the emphasis on the second syllable and a long A, rather than GRÏ-mäce. It was rather disconcerting and detracted from the narration. Is this really how the British say the word?
The narrator was good and made the characters interesting. I don't guess I care for fantasy like this. I bought it because of Diana and her son but it isn't a story type that I like.
No. I think most of my friends would not like it.
I liked the sorcerer but really none of the characters grabbed me. I found that it didn't really matter to me what happened to any of them. I was glad to see the dragon didn't die.
Nothing extremely good or bad. I'll try another book by Sam Sykes.
Hi I'm Regina and I'm a Bibliophile.
This story just didn't hold my attention...Although I really wanted to support my favorite author and her son... Perhaps I just need to hear it again...
I read and enjoy almost all genres, but spend most of my money following interesting, evolving characters in series.
I love Diana Gabaldon, but this is a waste of both money and time!
She is OK
