A wonderful, fun story with vibrant characters, great dialog, and lots of intriguing twists. On top of that, Noelle's illustrations are absolutely adorable, even when she's showing horrifying dragons engaged in wanton destruction.

“Writing is an act of discovery in which you peel back the layers of the story as you write it down.”
Matt Forbeck

“A group of adventurers is known as a "party," and not just because they like to celebrate their success together in the end. Your party should be as close to you as your family--assuming your family can cast spells, kill monsters, and bring you back from the edge of death.”
Matt Forbeck, Dungeonology

“Hardison held up a gigantic bag that Parker could have used as a dress. "I picked up all sorts of things," he said with a smile. "I grabbed the entire run of Chew, and I savaged the first trade paperback for the Magic: The Gathering comic, signed by the writer, no less.”
