The wizard Margle the Horrendous takes special pride in never killing his enemies. Instead, he transforms them into various accursed forms and locks them away in his castle. His halls are filled with his collection of fallen heroes and defeated villains, along with a few ordinary folk who were just unfortunate enough to draw Margle’s attention.It’s Nessy’s duty to tend this castle. It’s a lot of work, but she manages, taking pride in housekeeping talents that keep the castle from collapsing into chaos. But when Margle suddenly dies, everything begins to unravel. Nessy finds herself surrounded by monsters, curses, a door that should never be opened, and one very deadly dark wizardess.Nessy doesn’t have might or magic on her side; she’s just a kobold: short, furry, and sensible. Her allies aren’t much better: a voice without a body, an angry fruit bat, a monster under her bed, a wizard in a jar (or some of him, anyway), and a one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple, people eater. It would be smarter to walk away, but taking care of the castle is Nessy’s job, and that’s just what she intends to do.If only she could find time to polish the silver while beating back the forces of darkness.

The story felt forced, and around that time my reading pace began to slow, making me m...

MEINE MEINUNG Titel und Cover: Zu viele Flüche trifft es genau. Mir wäre auch kein besserer Titel eingefallen ;) Und das Cover, ich mag es einfach, es ist witzig genau wie der Roman auch. Man kann Nessy den Kobold sehen, den Gereth der Wasserspeier, Mister Bones und der Blaue Paladin. Schreibstil:...

Nessie reminds me of Martinez's nameless witch in that she's exceedingly practical and comes with an enjoyable, dry sense of humor. The minor characters are creatively fashioned and amusing... especially the jingling vampire and the jar of wizard parts. However, the plot moves very slowly and ther...
