Publisher's Summary

Diana Gabaldon, New York Times best-selling author of the immensely popular Outlander series, teams up with son Samuel Sykes to pen this supremely funny satire on religion, sexism, and power. A decidedly unusual pairing, half-breed sorceress Armecia and her constantly stoned sidekick, Sir Leonard of Savhael, join forces with a cowardly church vassal and a giantess posing as a nun. Their quest? To catch and kill Zeigfried, a fiery - if not too fearsome - dragon.

Not What I Expected But Okay

What made the experience of listening to Humane Killer the most enjoyable?

The narrator was good and made the characters interesting. I don't guess I care for fantasy like this. I bought it because of Diana and her son but it isn't a story type that I like.

Would you recommend Humane Killer to your friends? Why or why not?

No. I think most of my friends would not like it.

Which character – as performed by Jill Tanner – was your favorite?

I liked the sorcerer but really none of the characters grabbed me. I found that it didn't really matter to me what happened to any of them. I was glad to see the dragon didn't die.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nothing extremely good or bad. I'll try another book by Sam Sykes.
