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.

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.

- colleen "My favorite genres are absurdist humor, Sci-fi & modern fantasy, but, as you can see, I'll read just about anything. Don't mind the typos."

I bumped this to triple speed to finish it

The pace of this book is excruciatingly slow. Neither the plot nor the characters have any complexity or depth. The heroine has no redeeming qualities and her companions are so two dimensional that you have no empathy for them at all. After mumbling, get on with it over and over again, I finally bumped up to triple speed just to finish it. I cannot truly blame the narrator as I believe she was saddled with truly pathetic material. Of all the books I have listened to on Audible, this one was truly the worst.
