Publisher's Summary

Xebdigon Whizzfiddle is a wizard who has to find a quest, get it contracted, and finish it to the letter within 30 days or he'll lose his guild membership status, meaning he'll have to actually work for a living. At the perpetual age of 650, this is really no longer an option.
After interviewing countless people who are looking for a wizard to quest with, Whizzfiddle all but gives up. But then one last questing party arrives, and they're the oddest bunch he's seen in a long time - and being a wizard in the land of Ononokin, that's saying something!
They have to traverse the portals from the Upperworld to the Underworld; deal with Trolls, Ogres, Gorgans, Orcs, and, worst of all...Humans; survive the land of professional salespeople; go through the afterlife; and fight to avoid Whizzfiddle's disgruntled past-apprentice's attempts to thwart them at every turn.
Going through all of this makes Whizzfiddle wonder if maybe he shouldn't just give up magic and go back to his roots of being a farmer.

Terry Pratchett was, and always will be, Amazing! But I think these guys are definitely worthy successors!

Well, I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who loves the work of Sir Terry Pratchett, The master of satirical fantasy. Logsdon and Young haven't set out to copy the disk world series in any way. The only similarity really is that the setting is a fantasy world with its own rules and systems, and of course, a heavy dose of satire. But that's pretty much where the similarity ends. This new series of books brings to life a whole new cast of characters in a completely new and original way, and the narrator Jus Sargeant does a fantastic job in giving every character a very distinct and unique personality. The plot was clever, with some interesting twists and turns, and there were definitely many laughs along the way. The production value is incredibly high, no dogs barking in the background or birds singing outside the studio window. All-round a great audiobook for anybody looking for a laugh and a great fantasy listen! I would highly recommend it, and I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Great story of a bumbling wizard and a motley crew of quest seekers who are out to return their bodies back to their normal selfs.
Some quick witted and clever quips and moments abound in this story which makes for a pleasant read.
If you enjoy quacky and silly then this story is fir you.
Narrator does a great job of conveying the wide range of characters throughout this story. Shall also be keeping an eye out for more of his work as well as the authors.
