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.

I love the Iron Druid series and eagerly anticipated Kill the Farmboy . Maybe it was too much anticipation but this latest story is not so much clever as dopey, emotive and pandering. The humor attacks rather than amuses.
The narrator is a good one who I have heard several times before but the production destroys the performance by making much of the key dialogue so soft as to be unhearable while other parts slam your eardrums numbing them to continued listening. I was constantly adjusting my player's volume and even relistening in order to follow the story.
Between the sappy story and the poor production quality, I found it difficult to finish.

Luke Daniels is amazing
This is one of the funniest, most laugh out loud books I’ve read in a loooong time. The characters are all great, and the writing is sharp as a tack. Luke Daniels gives the best audio performance I have ever heard. Seriously, he’s amazing. He was one of my favorites after the Iron Druid series, and now I’d have to say he’s my favorite narrator ever. Buy this book. You won’t regret it.
