Publisher's Summary

Being born undead can have its disadvantages, such as eternal youth and flawless beauty-things most unsuitable for a witch. Hiding behind the guise of a grimy old crone, the witch is content living outside Fort Stalwart with her unlikely band of allies: a troll named Gwurm, an enchanted broom, and a demonic duck named Newt. She leads a simple life filled with spells, potions, and the occasional curse. So when a White Knight arrives at Fort Stalwart, the witch knows that her days of peace are at an end.
The Knight is just days in front of a horde of ravenous goblings, and Fort Stalwart lies right in the horde's path. But the goblings are just the first wave of danger, and soon the witch and the Knight must combine forces on a perilous quest to stop a mad sorcerer from destroying the world.

Early Martinez

Not bad, needed a better narrator. Original story and clever characters. This is one of my favorite authors. Check out Emperor Mullusk and Monster by the same guy.

Love A.Lee, not the Narrator

The female narrator of this book was so monotone at times, blasé at others, it was extremely difficult to get through this book.
