This is a rare book that combines fantasy with modern references, with the humor squarely centered on MMO's, RPG's, and other such things you might expect. It is written in a journal format, which allows you to read it in easy to digest chunks. You'll probably want to read it all the way through in one sitting, but thankfully you'll be able to break off whenever you want.
The story is light and fast paced, and of course, full of funny. You will love the characters, and enjoy the plot of the story as it unfolds. In one way, this kind of reminds me of Gene Wolfe's Soldier series, in which an amnesiac keeps a written journal so that he will know what he has done each day. I think that I just enjoy journal books, actually. Anyway, this is a great piece of fantasy unto itself, even if you don't get the humor.
Faust Kells hammers the narration home like a rivet gun. He provides the humor flawlessly, with perfect comedic timing, I might add, and plays the characters like he was a one man broadway show. I'd love to see a book two in the future. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Pun for all ages! If you enjoy all things fantasy, roll playing, and adventure based this a book for you. Faust does an amazing job narrating this journal of a nameless outlaw with great voices and impressions. Through short entries the outlaw takes you with him on his many adventures and random encounters he has experienced. From looting dungeons, battling smelly druids, to back stabbing any creature standing in the way of a payday. Plenty of humor and Easter eggs related to many types of pop culture sprinkled throughout. A fun book that is well worth your time even if you are just taking a break between campaigns. Looking forward to second volume and the related board games that are currently in development from McArt!
