How far would a villain go to help a friend? Lord Arkus of Blackriver Castle thinks doing three heroic deeds is a bit too far. Not only is it plain detestable, it could ruin his reputation and get him in trouble with the Villains League. On the other hand, it's not like he's got friends to spare. And losing the League's membership isn't the end of the world, one can always work independently. My Royal Pain Quest is approximately 57,700 words (5 hours and 53 minutes in the audiobook edition).
As an adult, sometimes I like to listen to children's audio books when I’m in a more easygoing mood or need a mental break from more complex plots. With that said, I’m still surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. This book is a playful version of all the serious fantasy novels out there. I love the fantasy genre and have listened/read so many that some of the plots have become predictable. While this one’s happy ending is just as predictable, the humor and hilarious characters make this one really worth a go.

The book was wonderful when my daughter & I first read it several years ago. The audio book is fantastic! The narrator really makes the story & characters come alive. He also matches the voices to personalities. This is a gem!
