I loved the first book, was excited to find out about the next book coming up on being done (As I write this Dale is working on the 3rd coming out shortly based on his twitter). This was a wonderful continuation of a previous story. However, if you are just thinking about reading this one, I feel you could start at this point and still feel comfortable in the story. They are connected, but not dependent. In some ways the style reminds me of Glen Cooks Garret serious. Taking a possible real world, then putting it into the fantasy setting and taking on all the other challenges that a “flat foot” would need to do to keep the peace. As in the review of did of the first book, great effort by author and narrator. I’m waiting on the 3rd book. Side note, this is also one of those folks you can check out on twitter that does interact with his fans. I like that style, shows a person that really does care about their readers (Vs just saying how much they like us). Take a chance, listen away and fall in love with this .. hopefully series with many books to come.

As strange as it sounds, I originally decided to read this book due to the over art, reading the description, decided to take the chance on someone I had not heard of or read previously. Short answer, I’m very glad I did. The book has this wonderful mix of fantasy/nior like/police drama. The charters themselves are rich, detailed, complex but not overly so. The story itself is well written and builds the foundation for a good series of future books (At least I hope for there to be many more). The narrator does a great job giving the characters unique life, and keeping the pace running well. I would suggest you purchase and listen, I feel secure that you will enjoy the story.

Will Save the Galaxy for Food has filled a void I felt could only be filled by great science fiction works such as those of Douglas Adams. The humor is on point and is tied in with the writing seamlessly. The characters and plot have immense depth and immersion. And Yahtzee's voice is just perfect. I can certainly recommend this book to an audience which has the gift of hearing and 1 or more fingers or finger-like appendages.
