Good story but missing end notes.

The story is complete but there were endnotes in the paperback which are missing in the audiobook. The endnotes had additional information about the story such as what had been on the smudged page, the fate of the spriggans, the dragon and a few other items.

Entertaining as hell!

I read the misenchanted sword years ago and I stumbled on to this recently. It's thoroughly entertaining. Almost felt like "The Hobbit" at parts because it just goes on so many rambling adventures all at once. Each arc of the story was very entertaining.

light airy story. not to be taken seriously.

It's a little too light for me. It is clever and well written. The protagonist is likeable. I don't really understand or like poligamy,that only comes in at the end. I don't think the writer really understands it either.

This book was a terrible eye roll of a stereotypical male power fantasy, no thank you
