A talking pearl earring. A gleaming white unicorn. A flower from an ogre.
Sandy Blunt, a witch, has big dreams but C-average magic skills. Her only noteworthy talent is for paying extravagant compliments to women. Trouble is, when she uses that gift, she unwittingly foretells the future for a pretty princess. And, the punishment for prophesying about one of royal blood is death...
With the help of ill-assorted companions - including a self-proclaimed princess in disguise, a self-absorbed member of the royal guard, and the not-so-average girl next door - Sandy has a year and a day to travel to far-flung places, collecting the weird and magical items needed to turn her prophecies into promises and evade the executioner. Along the way, she encounters such dangerous creatures as a dragon who writes awful poetry, slovenly elves, and boarding house landladies.

GREAT BOOK - GREAT NARRATOR!!!!!
Sitting back, relaxing and just falling into the story.
The cover art suggested a very funny book and the listening delivered.
What a fantastic voice! I think her interpretation as well as her vocal range added immensely to the overall satisfaction with the book.
Definitely the Ogre!
A real treat! If you want a very pleasant experience, choose this book for the story and its narrator!

A world of remarkable women.
Did not read the print version. I bought the audio because it came highly recommended.
Yes, She has a wonderful imagination, and her dscriptions are both funny and erotic.
Ms. Hendrix does an amazing reading. I can't imagine how anyone can so clearly define each character and provide such a flawless narration. She has given me a much greater afffection for audio books.
I would call it something like "A World of Promises" to avoid confusion with the Broadway show.
Overall a fun read. I have never cared much for audio books, but this was highly recommended for its content and its narrator. As the title promises, promises,itwas a romp.
