Publisher's Summary

Being born undead can have its disadvantages, such as eternal youth and flawless beauty-things most unsuitable for a witch. Hiding behind the guise of a grimy old crone, the witch is content living outside Fort Stalwart with her unlikely band of allies: a troll named Gwurm, an enchanted broom, and a demonic duck named Newt. She leads a simple life filled with spells, potions, and the occasional curse. So when a White Knight arrives at Fort Stalwart, the witch knows that her days of peace are at an end.

The Knight is just days in front of a horde of ravenous goblings, and Fort Stalwart lies right in the horde's path. But the goblings are just the first wave of danger, and soon the witch and the Knight must combine forces on a perilous quest to stop a mad sorcerer from destroying the world.

Early Martinez

Not bad, needed a better narrator. Original story and clever characters. This is one of my favorite authors. Check out Emperor Mullusk and Monster by the same guy.

Star crossed lovers

I enjoyed this story of star crossed lovers. Our main character is a witch born under a curse cast by an evil wizard. The curse was cast to affect a future descendent. The curse was evident her birth. Because of this she was not named by her parents. She has a curse that should result in an evil character. The problem is that she is basically a good person. Our Nameless Witch's character develops well. As she discovers the true extent of her evil curse, she struggles to remain good. A man enters her life forcing her to examine her life, goals, hopes and dreams microscopically. This story is kinda predictable. But it is written well. There is humor mixed in with the sadness. I enjoyed Ann Marie Lee's narration. My biggest complaint was that the story got a little too long in parts.

The Narration is a Problem.

I really enjoy the book; I've read it several times over the years and I didn't see a problem when I listened to the sample in Audible. I was wrong. The narrator does a good job in many ways, but she strives to make the main character sound winsome. Hours of winsomeness and careful enunciation wear thin after a very short while, and the excruciating enunciation every time she said "White (beat) Knight" made me want to scream by the 10th time she said it, and since he's a major character she says "White (beat) Knight" hundreds of times. There's a lot of humor in the book, but you'd never know it - every line is delivered straight, carefully enunciated, slow and winsome. AAAAAGGGGGHHHHH!

one of my all time favs

A. Lee is one of the most underrated authors out there. His books are funny. kind and mind-opening without being preachy. Thank you for all the great books and laughs!! Enjoy this every time I re-read it because not only well written but expertly read. If you like Christopher Moore, Drew Hayes, or Kevin Hearne you will enjoy this author tremendously.

My favorite audio book by A. Lee Martinez

The story is excellent by itself, but the narration by Ann Marie Lee is just about as good as any from the other audio books in my Audible library, and I have hundreds of titles.
Put it together, and this audio book is a truly excellent experience.

Love A.Lee, not the Narrator

The female narrator of this book was so monotone at times, blasé at others, it was extremely difficult to get through this book.

Was not my favorite

Although a big fan and have even met the author, I just felt the story was lacking. And the main character tries so hard that she looses you with her personality. And the conflict at the end is just there for conflict sake. He has alot better books to read and listen to.
