Publisher's Summary

Never shoot an ogre in the face.... 

Even with a magic gun. 

But that’s exactly what Duke did. Now he’s running for his life and reflecting on just what got him into this mess. 

All he’d really like to do is sit in a tavern and have an ale or three. But when you’re a Nuisance Man, and you live in a city with a thousand problems, that’s not always possible. 

Then, Duke encounters something new and his whole world is turned upside down. Add in a beautiful necromancer that he can’t keep his eyes off, and nothing is ever going to be the same. 

You’ll love these light-hearted, fast-paced tales of fantasy adventure because who doesn’t like a good laugh? 

Get it now.

“Despite the ungodly, early hour of right before noon there was actually somebody else already there”

A really enjoyable series of stories suitable for most ages! Such an easy listen but filled with tons of adventures!
Great narration too. He really fits well with the style of the story.
I’d happily listen to a ton more of these tales!
This is my honest opinion on a free review copy.

Entertaining city based fantasy fun

A thoroughly enjoyable listen. The novel follows a classic format of a grandfather regaling his grandson with stories of his youth and has that wonderful cosy feeling of familiarity about it. Each chapter features a single tale with recurring characters expanding their back stories followed by an interlude set in the fantasy world's present day working as segue between them. The book reminds me somewhat of a cross between of Jim Henson's "The Storyteller" TV series from the late 80s and Simon R. Green's "Hawk & Fisher" novels with a healthy dose of humour added to boot. T. L. Howell's narration is excellent and really brings to life each of the unique characters portrayed (especially the main character, Duke Grandfather). If you like city based fantasy novels featuring a swathe of fantasy creatures with plenty of laughs along the way then I strongly recommend "Tales of a Nuisance Man".
