    Long after the last of the great heroes of old has died, the Undead King is stirring again, amassing a goblin horde ready to sweep out of the mountains and destroy all of humanity. The only thing preventing utter annihilation is Edmund - a stuttering librarian who knows a secret, a secret that every thief, assassin, and king would kill to have. Fleeing from relentless peril, Edmund wages a solitary battle against an ancient evil. But how can one man succeed when so many before him have failed?

    Excellent story.

    Love the characters. Had to rename my cats, Filth, Pond Scum, Crazy Bastard and Turd. The narration is excellent as well. The story put me in mind ..Show More »

    Edmund’s old, boring life is gone forever. Knowing the answer to a cryptic riddle that, if in the wrong hands, could destroy all of humanity, Edmund is hiding in a sleepy coastal town as far from the frozen mountains of the Undead King as possible. For a moment, he believes he’s finally safe. Then he learns that Molly, the woman he’s loved since childhood, is telling stories about him - stories that will get him and his friends killed.

    Having committed treason by claiming the Highlands for his own kingdom, Edmund - the one-eyed, stuttering former librarian - decides to stop running and make his final stand. Along with his best friend, Pond Scum, and his manic dog, Becky, he must fight off goblins, magic users, and King Lionel's entire army in order to protect what he loves.

    Can't wait for the next series!!

    I only listened to the audio. The narrator did a good job. Splendid inflection in his voice. Good characterizations.
