A Nameless Witch by A. Lee Martinez

A Nameless Witch A Nameless Witch by A. Lee Martinez

Amazon Editorial Review:

A tale of vengeance, true love, and cannibalism Being born undead can have its disadvantages, such as eternal youth and flawless beauty ---things most unsuitable for a witch. Hiding behind the guise of a grimy old crone, the witch is content living outside Fort Stalwart with her unlikely band of allies: a troll named Gwurm, an enchanted broom, and a demonic duck named Newt. She leads a simple life filled with spells, potions, and the occasional curse.
So when a White Knight arrives at Fort Stalwart, the witch knows her days of peace are at an end. The Knight is just days in front of a horde of ravenous goblings, and Fort Stalwart lies right in the horde’s path. But the goblings are just the first wave of danger, and soon the witch and the Knight must combine forces on a perilous quest to stop a mad sorcerer from destroying the world. Filled with menace, monsters, and magic, A Nameless Witch is a properly witchly read by the award-winning author of Gil’s All Fright Diner and In the Company of Ogres.

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wonderful, dark. comic fantasy. This is the first book I have read by A. Lee Martinez, but I fully intend to read more. I really enjoyed the characters, their interactions and the storyline. I read this book in a day and that is always the sign of a good book. One that you avoid all responsibility to finish. lol

The front cover says 'A tale of vengenace, true love, and cannibalism' and that just about says it all for this book. Great read!!
