Publisher's Summary

Set a thousand years (give or take) before the events of Disenchanted, Distopia tells the story of Wyngalf the Bold, the legendary hero renowned for ridding the land of Dis of the scourge of dragons. The story begins as Wyngalf, a young missionary for an obscure religious sect, arrives in the port city of Skuldred. Desperate to prove his worth to his superiors, Wyngalf finds himself drafted into leading a missionary voyage across the sea to the semilegendary land of Dis. Accompanied by a beautiful stowaway named Evena and an oddball goblin who has been shunned by his clan, Wyngalf is continually thwarted in his attempts to proselytize by various practical concerns - chief among these being the fact that the land of Dis is being terrorized by a fearsome dragon. Wyngalf realizes that in order to prove his faith and get Evena home, he must summon the courage and resourcefulness to defeat the dragon. But what if his faith isn't enough?

A good listen, though not as funny as the first

If you listened to Disenchanted (the preceding book, which is actually not entirely required in order to listen to this one as it occurs long before the first chronologically), you would come into this book expecting something hilarious. It's not quite that.

This story was a bit more serious than the first. It had its moments of humor, though, evoking thoughts of Monty Python's Life of Brian. The "unlikely prophet" was an interesting take, and the cerebral goblin who had to constantly apologize for interrupting and for having an intellect of his own was definitely good for some grins. Still, they're no Boric the Implacable, and the story didn't quite have the same...zaniness? I'm not sure. It was good, overall; it just wasn't quite like the first one.

Phil Gigante turned in an absolutely excellent performance, though. He's one of a scant few narrators that I'm convinced could read me the dictionary and make it entertaining.

How to identify a brute speaking like a man

If you could sum up Distopia in three words, what would they be?

An unlikely prequel to the first book


What did you like best about this story?

The goblin, he is an intelligent character that has to play dumb so he can not get harassed.


What does Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He made this book feel like an old radio show. It's fun being able to enjoy a great book while I'm doing chores or driving to work.
