Summary

Montana Coggeshall, duke of Coggeshall, defeater of dungeons, he of far fewer intelligence points than is probably recommended, is finally ready to start building his dukedom. He just needs one more thing before he can leave Osterstadt: a few hardworking friends to join him on this adventure.

Well, and some lumber. And nails and whatnot. And enough food to get through the winter. And probably some more gold.

All Montana needs before he can leave Osterstadt are some friends, some building materials, food, and money. 

But he did promise to retrieve some magic texts from a cemetery for Emmeline. And he really should try to help the lost little boy who keeps following him around. And all the undead in that basement crypt aren't going to re-kill themselves.

Maybe Montana's taken on a few too many side quests.

Dropped

The author tries really hard to make the protagonist stupid, if there is any development the author pushes all the progress back, the last straw was when he nogociated for the people with the favour coin, that was too much, ad for why, you will understand when you listen to that part. No more books from this author for me.

This series is a riot!

I must say, this series is a lot of fun, and a good chunk of that fun is simply how well Neil Hellegers does at getting into character with the MC's inner monologue. I definitely eagerly look forward to the next book in the series coming out

Entertaining!

Listening to Montana's journey is a fun one. The story makes fun of itself but still takes itself serious enough. I enjoy how fast the author and narrator are churning out these books, considering how short they are. They don't seem to be dropping in quality either.

The third book was probably my favorite so far with tons of childish humor revolving around waste. This book was still funny though and I found myself laughing. The way Montana just brute forces everything is hilarious and oddly satisfying.

Past the halfway mark we get to see some interesting character development. Montana travels with a group but despite being surrounded by people he feels and technically is utterly alone. I can identify with this and assume many others as well. This proves this series is not all fun and games and can take on a serious undertone.

I am a bit disappointed in how utterly lacking in knowledge Montana is. He has an advisor who is supposed to teach him everything and friends who know the world better than him yet no one ever helps him understand. They complain when he does stupid shit and get upset yet how can they expect anything else from him. How about all that down time during travel and resting they actually talk to him without berating him.

Overall, I quite enjoy the series and would recommend it to many different audiences. There is a lot of gruesome violence and intense profanity (Which is hilarious btw) meaning I would exclude young children from my recommendation.

TL;DR : A hilarious series that jokes around yet is quite serious and has some valuable lessons you can take from.

Don't Drink The Green Stuff...

It isn't St. Paddy's Day beer and you aren't in Kansas anymore.

The most enjoyable of the series so far. The MC, while still acting the fool on occasion, is taking on the weight and responsibilities of his nobility. He still leans toward taking on serious dangers alone but has begun to distribute those responsibilities amongst his followers. There's also ample amounts of adventures and dangers that present themselves and, while not eliminated, the author has kept to stats dump to a minimum.

Onward to book 5.

Montana is at it again

Anyone who’s enjoyed Montana’s “ happy he-man with an axe” will love this book. Montana starts to gather quite a following and his usual fish out of water hilarity ensues! If you haven’t read or heard the previous books in the series I think you can jump in here and be ok. Really though if you haven’t got the others you really should start with “One more last time “, not because you won’t keep up but because you will miss a heck of a fun story !
