Summary from Goodreads: In an irreverent new series in the tradition of Terry Pratchett novels and The Princess Bride, the New York Times bestselling authors of the Iron Druid Chronicles and Star Wars: Phasmareinvent fantasy, fairy tales, and floridly written feast scenes.
Once upon a time, in a faraway kingdom, a hero, the Chosen One, was born . . . and so begins every fairy tale ever told.
This is not that fairy tale.
There is a Chosen One, but he is unlike any One who has ever been Chosened.
And there is a faraway kingdom, but you have never been to a magical world quite like the land of Pell.
There, a plucky farm boy will find more than he's bargained for on his quest to awaken the sleeping princess in her cursed tower. First there's the Dark Lord who wishes for the boy's untimely death . . . and also very fine cheese. Then there's a bard without a song in her heart but with a very adorable and fuzzy tail, an assassin who fears not the night but is terrified of chickens, and a mighty fighter more frightened of her sword than of her chain-mail bikini. This journey will lead to sinister umlauts, a trash-talking goat, the Dread Necromancer Steve, and a strange and wondrous journey to the most peculiar "happily ever after" that ever once-upon-a-timed.
Review: OMG! At first I didn't know what to think of this book, but now I'm like what the heck. This is crazy. So funny. This is not your ordinary princess bride type fairy tale, this is something else. The story takes you on a ride with a farm boy who is told he is the chosen one. He goes on his quest and all hell breaks lose. I want to tell you about the Llamataur... enough said, and don't forget about the Sextapuse. I'm really not sure what that even is good for, but its weird.
If you like hilarious wild rides, and a story that is beyond belief, then drink this potion. It will keep you roaring with laughter until the very end.
