Epic fantasy all wrapped up in a computer game. This author pulls off an odd blend of fantasy story and a computer game run amok. A delightful page-turner that entertains you with every lively twist.

Enter the game with all the pun loving, wise cracking characters and mystery to solve. Good fun that will not mnemonic grin and sometimes a groan.
