Summary

It’s hard enough being barely above average when your brothers include the deadliest swordsman of the realm, a saint, prodigies - and the greatest hero of the Middle Ages. But what if you haven’t seen your queen of love in years and she's imprisoned by a one-armed religious zealot and lethal librarians? Even worse, your only allies are vicious killers with rather bad manners and outsized appetites who all want to murder your heroic brother.

The result - in a world of pedantic misrule, feckless magic, and courage both dauntless and daunted - is either high adventure or an identity crisis. Or both.

PURE BRILLIANCE !

An impressive voice in historic, imaginative fiction literature. The writing is exquisitely beautiful, the characters are both heartbreakingly sad, and joyous in their triumphs and sorrows. Very poetically versed, transforming the reader into another era all together. With all the greed, lust, vanity, deceit, love and artistic freedom - this tale that is enormously entertaining, deep and fascinating, magical.

Delightful!

What fun. Written with wit and style, this epic was delightful from start to finish. Masterfully written by Anderson and performed with finesse by Bramhall, I will be looking for more by both!

Colorful language, whimsical story

The audio version was incredibly helpful to me since it was efficient for me to listen to it in the car or while doing errands around the house! The audio version had a very engaging speaker with good voice inflection and cadence, which always kept me on my toes!!! Overall I loved the use of colorful language to paint a whimsical story of a boy who is persistent and brave enough to keep moving forward despite the challenges he encounters
