Wrath of the Lemming-Men | [Toby Frost]

Wrath of the Lemming-Men

From the depths of Space a new foe rises to do battle with mankind: the British Space Empire is threatened by the lemming-people of Yull, ruthless enemies who attack without mercy, fear or any concept of self preservation. At the call of their war god, the Yull have turned on the Empire, hell bent on conquest and destruction in their rush towards the cliffs of destiny. When the Yullian army is forced to retreat at the battle of the River Tam, the disgraced Colonel Vock swears revenge on the clan of Suruk the Slayer, Isambard Smith's homicidal alien friend.

Publisher's Summary

From the depths of Space a new foe rises to do battle with mankind: the British Space Empire is threatened by the lemming-people of Yull, ruthless enemies who attack without mercy, fear or any concept of self preservation. At the call of their war god, the Yull have turned on the Empire, hell bent on conquest and destruction in their rush towards the cliffs of destiny.

When the Yullian army is forced to retreat at the battle of the River Tam, the disgraced Colonel Vock swears revenge on the clan of Suruk the Slayer, Isambard Smith's homicidal alien friend. Now Smith and his crew must defend the Empire and civilise the stuffing out of a horde of bloodthirsty lemming-men- which would be easy were it not for a sinister robotics company, a Ghast general with a fondness for genetic engineering and an ancient brotherhood of Morris Dancers - who may yet hold the key to victory….

What the Critics Say

"Toby Frost managed to write not only a laugh-out-loud space romp, but one that holds up well enough if you take all the humour away and start looking at the back bone of the stories - the world he has created. It just works so well and because of the fun I had with the first two novels Wrath of the Lemming Men was pretty much my most anticipated book of the year and the sooner I could get it through the letterbox the better. Not only did it meet my expectations, but once again Toby is expanding more and more from the base he set up in Space Captain Smith." (Walker of Worlds)

    "the funniest audiobook in my collection"
    What made the experience of listening to Wrath of the Lemming-Men the most enjoyable?

    The whole book is an action packed comedy with truly likeable characters. Every line spoken by a Lemming Man is priceless. Out of the 1270 or so auiobooks I bought I have listened to this book and this series more than any other. I wear a carefree smile when I listen to this book. It is a joy to listen to and I crack up over the same lines. This book is permanently on my MP3 player and will never be deleted. The narrator hits the voices perfectly.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wrath of the Lemming-Men?

    The prologue where noble born Colonel Vock leads his suicidal "tidalwave of fur" against the legendary warrior and renowned accountant Eggshad Nine Swords, father of Soruck the Slayer, at the battle of the Tam Bridge. HOP HOP! Just typing these words gives me goosebumps!


    What about Clive Catterall’s performance did you like?

    He does all the voices perfectly and in a unassuming manner. Great job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laugh every time I listen to this book. And I have listened to it at least 20 times. No joke.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy this audiobook! You will be entertained from start to finish.

    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book sounds like what would happen if Monty Python ever wrote a skit that made fun of a science fiction story. Clive Catterall reads his lines with all the delivery you could ever ask from Monty Python. Unfortunately, I didn???t make it past the second chapter.

    "Funny and intelligent space romp!"

    Toby Frost's characters, in this 3rd in the series, are still as funny as ever. Juxtaposition of Space Opera and British Empire memes leads to much silliness. Clive Catterall's reading is so perfectly low-key, that the irony and silliness kind of sneak up on you.

    I have listened to this one 3 times already, since I purchased it, and will listen many more times. It is just as laugh-out-loud funny every time.

    The previous book, God Emperor of Didcot, has been my go-to listen for light entertainment. This book is just as good.
