Publisher's Summary

After five years as a city guard, Durham's horizontal career trajectory adds a corkscrew when a mis-delivered order assigns him to caravan duty for an eclectic group of dwarves who hire themselves out as professional dungeoneers. No ruler wants to leave a powerful magical weapon lying about in a dungeon where just any prophesied upstart can stumble across it and use it to overthrow the kingdom. That's where the dungeoneers come in. Dungeons sacked, artifacts recovered, no job too big or too small. They're not adventurers; they're professionals. With the discovery that Durham may have arrived with a destiny attached to him, the dungeoneers find themselves in the midst of some history about to happen. Will experience and Dwarven know-how be enough to carry the day?

I made it halfway through before giving up. I really don't mind silly stories or brain candy- if they're relatively well done. This just wasn't. It was empty and boring. The personalities of the dwarves were completely empty, the storyline beyond predictable, just... not worth the time or energy.

I am a gamer and I do appreciate things like this, normally. This just wasn't one of those times. Give this one a pass.

Get past the narrator and the story is great

What aspect of Faust Kells’s performance would you have changed?

He got off to a rough start. Quite a few of the sentences were read in a way that seemed like he wasn't sure which inflection to use so he decided to use them all. It got to be much better toward the end of the book.
Note that when he says something that sounds like "ahk-in" he is reading the word "akin". Small thing, but it certainly knocks on that fourth wall.


Any additional comments?

It's a very funny story and is very well written. It's similar to NPCs by Drew Hayes.
