About this ebook

A serious fantasy series that doesn’t take itself seriously.

An old man, a young armor-wearing girl, and a farm boy walk into a story, and this is what you get; a fantasy series of monsters and mayhem where each day leads them into new troubles and intrigue. Fred is the farm boy, a serf bound to his lord by the debt of his deceased parents. He’s thrown out into the world against his will and into the company of an armored young woman by the name of Pat and her cloaked, bearded companion, Ned. Together they make an unlikely group as they wind their way through troubles with perilous plant monsters, dangerous dog-beasts, and a good book that refuses to be put down. Literally.

The Unwilling Adventurer is a fantastical fantasy for lovers of sword and sorcery, action and adventure, panic and pandemonium, and a bunch of other epic adjectives.

Its a decent starter book. Starts slowly and builds up pace. I don't know where this book features in the authors career but in places it does seem a little off in the way things progress. Things some times seem rushed or under explained. Its as though it was written by 2 different authors. One of whom is more experienced than the other. Do not get me wrong I enjoyed the story and do strongly believe that the frame work is good. Writing style will improve and it'll turn into a very good series of novels.

A twist in flavour between Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, this story is a fun, adventurous read. The characters have you invested from the very beginning and don't let go ... not even when you sadly come to the last page. In fact, if I were to have any complaints at all, it would be the fact that the book came to an end. Well Done!

Gross spelling, grammar& homonym missteps. Also: awkward malapropisms, profanity, paragraphing, punct./plot/factual/tense& syntax errors abound. Such blatant mistakes betray author/or proofreader failed to prep the ms. prior to submission. Funny events show potential to attract juv/'tween reader, if he can persevere, in spite of mistakes& meanderings!
