On Gnomes: From Alchemical Theory to a Fairy Tale Staple
I really enjoyed the Gnomes, Halfings, Dwarfs and the Gryphon. There are a lot of wonderfully fun characters. The characters are wonderful, some brilliant gnomes some really dumb haflings. Pell is a fascinating place as was seen and enjoyed in the first book in the series, "Kill the Farmboy" and this book is a great addition to the series.
The authors are already planning the next book. This is a most enjoyable read!!! MsArdychan More than 1 year ago Please Note: I received an advance copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not influence the opinions of my review in any way.

The first book in this series, Kill The Farm Boy, was a fun romp incorporating several fairy tales. Dawson and Kevin Hearne. Although both books are set in the same universe, only a few of the characters from the first book appear in the second. I enjoyed the many fascinating characters and the quest they embarked on. Plus, as is often the case with fantasy novels, the authors cleverly wove in issues relevant to real-life such as immigration, and political corruption. But with so many different characters and story lines occurring, I got a bit lost trying to keep all everything straight in my mind.
Overall, if you enjoy pun-filled humor, silly situations, with a bit of social commentary mixed in, then this is the book for you! Very fun. Together they must find out who is causing the increasing tensions between the gnomes and halflings and find out the mystery behind a golden metal man. With their hilarious wit and fun twist on the old fairy tale tropes, Dawson and Hearne have written an incredibly amusing tale of friendship and found family.
Thank you to Netgalley and the Publisher for the opportunity to read and review this book. All opinions are my own.

Stuck-up elves? Two gnomes and an unusually lawful halfling overcoming their mutual racism to become allies and finally friends? Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed Dawson and Hearne's mixture of slapstick with humorous wordplay, and I highly recommend this second tale of Pell. Note: While some of the characters from the first book make brief appearances, this book can be read as a standalone!

If you haven't read the first Kill the Farm Boy , you should, but it's not necessary to enjoy this installment. In this story we follow Gnomes, Halflings, Sheep-people, and Dwarfs on an adventure to This book is a wonderfully funny satire on fairy tales, with a ton of pop culture references, puns, and good old fashioned immaturity. It took a bit of getting in to, with several chapters introducing us to each of our adventurers, but it's worth it once things really get rolling.
I cannot wait for the third in the series. It's been a long while since I found a book or series that made me giggle as much as the Tales of Pell. The authors draw you in and make you smile in this fabulous follow up to Kill the Farm Boy. I heartily recommend. Related Searches. A Country Pillow Book.
