Delilah S. Dawson and Kevin Hearne have taken the "chosen one" narrative and turned it on its head with the Tales of Pell novels. The unexpected is at last actually unexpected and littered with puns. In Kill the Farmboy, we meet Worstley, a down on his luck farmboy, and his talking goat Gustave. An especially disheveled pixie foretells of Worstley's rise to greatness. Of course it all goes a bit sideways from there. The cast of characters include a warrior who doesn't eat meat, a sorcerer who can't seem to conjure anything more than biscuits, and a sand witch that one would take care to fully trust. No Country for Old Gnomes continues to deliver with more surprising and hilarious characters, revisiting some of the earlier cast as well. With a hint of Douglas Adams style humor and the world-building skills of Dawson and Hearne, these novels are both fantastic and hilarious. I cannot wait to read the third book in the Tales of Pell series, The Princess Beard - you've got just enough time to catch up if you've been missing out on this fun series and preorder your copy of the third book before the October 8th release date!
