Publisher's Summary

King Boric the Implacable knows death comes to all great warriors. He just didn't expect it to be so damn fickle. Felled by an assassin's blade, he should be spending eternity carousing in the Hall of Avandoor. Instead, his spirit is bound to his decaying body by the enchanted sword of Brakslaagt. And unless he can hunt down the mysterious Lord Brand, who gave him the weapon so long ago, he is cursed to wander the earth forever as an undead wraith. So begins Boric's extraordinary journey across the Six Kingdoms of Dis as a walking corpse who wants nothing more than to be disenchanted and left in peace. His is not an easy quest: along the way he is burned, riddled with arrows, and nearly blown to bits. But when he finally comes face-to-face with Lord Brand, Boric will discover that nothing - in life, in death, or in between - is exactly what it seems.

Any additional comments?

This writer is wonderful and so funny!! Having Phil read it was magic, and I couldn't imagine it any other way. He read it with such seriousness and I can't think how someone else could pull it off. Just don't read it in public or while running. The first will get you really weird looks, the latter will make it hard to breath through all the giggling! What a great fun book! I would recomend to any age, any gender. My 15 year old son loved it too!

Dead man walking.

This fantasy is the adventure of King Boris trying to separate his spirit from his body so he can go to heaven. I was expecting the story to be funny and it was mildly amusing at parts but in no way as funny as Christopher Moore whom this book was compared to. Overall the writing is very vivid and I can picture the events that take place very clearly. Unfortunately I'm a character driven reader and I did not like King Boris. Yes he has the typical Middle Ages mentality but I thought he was an Ass, but admittedly a very well written one. The writing itself was good and I liked the adventure behind the man so I finished the book. I purchased this with Whispersync and for a few bucks it wasn't too bad. Phil Gigante was good, I have always enjoyed his voice.
