Description

This princess can shave herself! The hilarious best-selling authors of Kill the Farm Boy and No Country for Old Gnomes are back with a new adventure in the irreverent world of Pell.

Once upon a time, a princess slept in a magical tower cloaked in thorns and roses. 

When she woke, she found no Prince Charming, only a surfeit of hair and grotesquely long fingernails - which was, honestly, better than some creep who acted without consent. She cut off her long braids and used them to escape. But she kept the beard because it made a great disguise.

This is not a story about finding true love’s kiss - it's a story about finding yourself. On a pirate ship. Where you belong.

But these are no ordinary pirates aboard The Puffy Peach, serving under Filthy Lucre, the one-eyed parrot pirate captain. First there’s Vic, a swole and misogynistic centaur on a mission to expunge himself of the magic that causes him to conjure tea and dainty cupcakes in response to stress. Then there’s Tempest, who’s determined to become the first dryad lawyer - preferably before she takes her ultimate form as a man-eating tree. They’re joined by Alobartalus, an awkward and unelfly elf who longs to meet his hero, the Sn’archivist who is said to take dictation directly from the gods of Pell. Throw in some mystery meat and a dastardly capitalist plot, and you’ve got one Pell of an adventure on the high seas!

In this new escapade set in the magical land of Pell, Delilah S. Dawson and Kevin Hearne lovingly skewer the tropes of fairy tales and create a new kind of fantasy: generous, gently humorous, and inclusive. There might also be otters.

Funny and Schmancy!

Like so many other books Hearne has worked on, this delivered humor, wit, word-play, puns, and a great story to boot. I mean, tea and centaurs - I almost felt like I was reading about Xanth for a second there.

It is with great disdain that I had to endure another lecture from Hearne on the difficulties of being a writer, and this time it invaded the story itself. Were it an Author's note, or a preface, or even an addendum, my thoughts would be different. Interjecting your thoughts on book theft and piracy into the story is like seeing obvious product placement in movie - it destroys the suspense of disbelief. Holding a story hostage in this manner is cringe worthy and I actually stopped listening after the second time it happened.

Kevin, if you read these reviews, please stop punishing your readers. It is not appealing and removes value from your product.

Hearne, Dawson do it again!

Another outstanding book read by one of the finest voice actors out there! Charming, laugh out loud funny and hard to put down, another home run!

ehhh

I enjoyed the book itself, but listening to the parrot talking was just extremely annoying.

Not as strong as books 1 and 2 but worth reading

It wad a good installation to the series but didn't quite have the heart of the first 2 books. The gags were good but it didnt make me emotional as the first two did and isn't quite as quotable or punchy -- I look forward to the next installment.

for audible quality it is expertly performed and I highly recommend any reader experience the audio version. Be cautioned that some anagrams/puns are less obvious when you can't see the spelling, but it wasn't a barrier to enjoyment.

Great story!

Love this series and adore the author! Who I really love is Luke Daniels. He’s one of my very favorite narrators and I look for books that he performs specifically. That being said the voice of the parrot pirate drove me to distraction and made me grind my teeth. Other than that I loved the book, the performance, and the production.

Pun adventure

I enjoyed every second of this book as I did with the first and second. Luke Daniels is amazing. D.S. Dawson and Kevin Hearne create the best books.
