TERRY PRATCHETT meets THE WITCHER in this pee-your-pants-laughing fantasy novel.

Sure, you think you know the story of the fearsome red dragon, Dragonia. How it terrorized the village of Skendrick until a brave band of heroes answered the noble villagers' call for aid. How nothing could stop those courageous souls from facing down the beast. How they emerged victorious and laden with treasure.

But, even in a world filled with epic adventures and tales of derring-do, where dragons, goblins, and unlicensed prestidigitators run amok, legendary heroes don't always know what they're doing. Sometimes, they're clueless. Sometimes, beleaguered townsfolk are more hapless than helpless. And orcs? They're not always assholes, and sometimes, they don't actually want to eat your children.

Heloise the Bard, Erithea's most renowned storyteller, is here to set the record straight.

See, it turns out adventuring isn't easy, and true heroism is as rare as an articulate villager. Having spent decades propagating this particular myth (which, incidentally, she wrote), she's finally able to tell the real story...for which she just so happened to have a front-row seat.

Welcome to Erithea. I hope you brought a change of undergarments; things are going to get messy.

"Evoking the dry humor of Terry Pratchett and absurdist trope subversions of Monty Python...Gibson's story is clever, twisty, and bursting with sidesplittingly funny one-liners. Fantasy fans are guaranteed a laugh." - Publisher's Weekly

"...if Gibson continues to put out work of this quality and high level of entertainment, will be a success story along the lines of Michael R. Fletcher, M.L. Spencer, or Rob J. Hayes." - Grimdark Magazine

"I can't praise the story enough. If you want something light-hearted and fun to read that will zip by quickly, but still want to feel like you got the content you hoped for, this is definitely the book you should pick up." - The Inkslinger Book Reviews

"Mr. Sean Gibson would be extremely fun to play Dungeons and Dragons with." - Verified Reviewer
