Publisher's Summary

Real heroes never die. But they do get grouchy in middle age. The beloved King Ik is dead, and there was barely time to check his pulse before the royal throne was supporting the suspiciously shapely backside of an impostor pretending to be Ik's beautiful, long-lost daughter. With the land's heroic hunks busy drooling all over themselves, there's only one man left who can save the kingdom of Jenair. His name is Dungar Loloth, a rural blacksmith turned innkeeper, a surly hermit, and an all-around nobody oozing toward middle age, compensating for a lack of height, looks, charm, and tact with guts and an attitude. Normally politics is the least of his concerns, but after everyone in the neighboring kingdom of Farrawee comes down with a severe case of being dead, Dungar learns that the masquerading princess not only is behind the carnage but also has similar plans for his own hometown. Together with the only person senseless enough to tag along, an eccentric and arguably insane hobo named Jimminy, he journeys out into the world he's so pointedly tried to avoid as the only hope of defeating the most powerful person in it. That is, if he can survive the pirates, cultists, radical Amazonians, and assorted other dangers lying in wait along the way. Logan J. Hunder's hilarious debut blows up the fantasy genre with its wry juxtaposition of the fantastic and the mundane, proving that the best and brightest heroes aren't always the best for the job.

Wow. Just .... wow.

I really was just wanting to tide me over until Jim Butcher drops his next blockbuster Dresden Files book. This bowled me over. A nice hero arc. villians galore. pirates. wizards. Awesome. Can't wait to read L.Hunder's other books.

Narration was fantastic, characters were voiced well and accents were very good. Highly recommend!

Boring, juvenile, unfunny

Kept losing the thread, mentally nodding off as the story was unspooling. Am about one hour into it and have decided to call it quits. Sad, I really wanted to like it. Nothing I love more than a good quest. But no. Skip this one.

Disappointing

Not what I was expecting from the reviews. I was hoping for a funny, good story. But quite frankly if it hadn't been narrated by James Patrick Cronin I would have binned it. The story was weak and rather ridiculous, there were one or two funny parts but mostly it was childish. The characters were thin with no real fleshing out that I'd expect from a book of this length.
The mixing of modern terms into a sword and sourcery era was just annoying.
Not the book for someone who likes a story that builds a world in their head and populates it with believable characters ( for the book).
All in all, I finished it but won't be going back for more.
