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.

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.

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 least enjoyable A Lee Martinez book.

What disappointed you about A Nameless Witch?

The story was slow moving and lacked substance and humor. I'm a big fan of his other work but this one misses the mark. I was also disappointed that this book appeared to be a new book from the author, but was really an old book with a new recording. Martinez has definitely grown as an author since this book and I highly suggest checking out his other stuff.

I bumped this to triple speed to finish it

The pace of this book is excruciatingly slow. Neither the plot nor the characters have any complexity or depth. The heroine has no redeeming qualities and her companions are so two dimensional that you have no empathy for them at all. After mumbling, get on with it over and over again, I finally bumped up to triple speed just to finish it. I cannot truly blame the narrator as I believe she was saddled with truly pathetic material. Of all the books I have listened to on Audible, this one was truly the worst.

Wow again. L Martinez is awesome.

This is another great book. Lee hit my "this is awesome" zone every time. It is just a great mix of snarky with plot you can think about.
This is the classic girl meets boy girl wins boys heart then rips it to shreds while saving the world. With a little twist.
Great listen I recommend it!
