KARL'S KINGDOM: BOOK 1: DISCOVERY
#33 in Kindle Store for Epic Fantasy and #45 for Literary humour.
An epic fantasy featuring magic, monsters, morons and more.
Below average twenty-year old Karl has poor eyesight, can't throw, and has never really fit in. That's okay though, because he lives in Flowforn where people are encouraged to live their dreams, and having failed at so many jobs he lives his dream of doing absolutely nothing. However, when the tyrant man-hawk, Arazod invades Flowforn, Karl's life will never be the same again.

Here are some reviews from non-family members if you need help making your mind up:
'The story is full of interesting and creative ideas, much more than a typical fantasy story. For example, a likeable young lady called Questions, who can't make statements, but can only ask questions. She's from the Inquisos tribe, who struggle to have a normal life due to the difficulties of communicating. I particularly liked the idea of "Tortured Souls". If someone strong is tortured, rather than dying they escape by shrinking to become a small creature, a head with tiny legs. They don't remember much, but if anyone says their name to them then they get restored to their normal self. That's a good way of writing - take a common idiom and twist it to have a fantastical meaning.
The plot is good, the characters are lifelike, it's packed with creativity, and is very funny. If you like Terry Pratchett, you'll like this.' By AVID READER - HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
'Very much enjoyed Karl's adventures - a colourful rabble of characters you really grow to love in a novel laced with dry wit. Wouldn't want to draw lazy comparisons to Pratchett, but the marriage of whimsical characters and a fully-realised but bonkers world, plus the potential to explore more of Hastovia in future instalments (plus the fact I'm lazy) means I'm going to.
Hope it finds the audience it richly deserves. Two thumbs up.' CRUNCHYBACKPACK
'This is a wildly funny fantasy romp that fans of Terry Pratchett will love.
The characters are vibrant and a bit disturbed, the storyline is an unforgettable one.' CAZ
