Publisher's Summary

Sure, you think you know the story of the fearsome red dragon, Dragonia. How it terrorized the village of Skendrick until a brave band of heroes answered the noble villagers' call for aid. How nothing could stop those courageous souls from facing down the dragon. How they emerged victorious and laden with treasure. But, even in a world filled with epic adventures and tales of derring-do, where dragons, goblins, and unlicensed prestidigitators run amok, legendary heroes don't always know what they're doing. Sometimes they're clueless. Sometimes beleaguered townsfolk are more hapless than helpless. And orcs? They're not always assholes, and sometimes they don't actually want to eat your children. 

Heloise the Bard, Erithea's most renowned storyteller (at least, to hear her tell it), is here to set the record straight. See, it turns out adventuring isn't easy, and true heroism is as rare as an articulate villager. Having spent decades propagating this particular myth (which, incidentally, she wrote), she finally able to tell the real story - for which she just so happened to have a front-row seat. Welcome to Erithea. I hope you brought a change of undergarments - things are going to get messy.

Not enough story for the length of the book

There was a chuckle here and there, but all of the characters were pretty one-dimensional, including the main character. So there was a lot of repetition of the same basic joke, and repetition didn’t make it any funnier. The narrator started out by speaking too rapidly when delivering the snide comments, but she got better. Honestly, I don’t think she could’ve salvaged this story.

Laughed Out Loud

The book is engaging and parts were hilarious. The audio had a few places where it repeated. The narrator was excellent.

Fun and engaging!

Super fun fantasy adventure! Characters are WAY more interesting (thanks to narrator Haley Catherine) than any portrayal my brain would have created reading the book. Especially when it came to the song in chapter 12! Tears 😭 so good!!!

Fun!

This is a light-hearted, fun, delight of a book. To me, the humor got better and better as the book went along, until the culmination where...well, I won't spoil anything, but it's hilarious! The story is fun and fast-paced, and the conclusion is perfect. I would recommend this to anyone who likes fun and smiling and laughing :)

Its meh

The story would have been ok if they stuck to it but they keep bringing up political topics that just don't work its Distractioning. But the narrator is good.
