Product description

Review

“When you put two authors of this high caliber together, expect fireworks. Or at least laughs. What a hoot!”—Terry Brooks

“Delilah S. Dawson and Kevin Hearne have rigged up an absurdly funny fantasy riff on the Chosen One story, and it had me laughing from literally the name of the first chapter. Kill the Farm Boy ranks among the best of Christopher Moore and Terry Pratchett and is not to be missed.”—Chuck Wendig

“A rollicking fantasy adventure that upends numerous genre tropes in audacious style, the first installment of Dawson and Hearne’s Tales of Pell series is a laugh-out-loud-funny fusion of Monty Python–esque humor and whimsy à la Terry Pratchett’s Discworld.”Kirkus Reviews

“Dawson and Hearne’s reimagining of a traditional fairy tale is reminiscent of William Goldman’s The Princess Bride and William Steig’s Shrek! Irreverent, funny, and full of entertaining wordplay, this will keep readers guessing until the end.”Library Journal

“The hilarious parody novel by New York Times best-selling authors Delilah Dawson and Kevin Hearne is one of the brightest reading selections of the summer, and its deliriously fun tone and satirical embrace will have you laughing out loud until strangers begin to look at you oddly.”SyFy

Kill the Farm Boy is a smart comedy, not only because it skewers modern tropes with a deft but direct hand, provides twists and turns to what should be a classic quest, or has representation in sorely needed ways, but because Dawson and Hearne know exactly when to dole out the humor amidst all this deconstruction of narrative. . . . Under Dawson and Hearne’s meticulous care and curating, [the characters] become nuanced, complicated, and human.”Tordotcom

“[Delilah Dawson and Kevin Hearne] wanted to make fun of the typical ‘white male power fantasies,’ and in that, they succeed, with their heroes all characters of color and/or falling somewhere under the LGBTQ umbrella.”Publishers Weekly

“Silly fun.”Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star

“A fantasy saga with a sense of humor . . . The book is fun to read and clearly was fun to write.”Asheville Citizen Times

“Dawson and Hearne do a fantastic job of giving each character their own voice. . . . These characters are imbued with respect and humanity. . . . Modern sensibilities, engaging humor, fantastic characters, and a ripping yarn.”—SFFWorld

“Take every fantasy trope, every dungeon crawl, every fairytale stereotype and put them in a bag, smash the bag with a hammer, then dump out the pieces and you get Kill the Farm Boy. It’s a romp of a book, with clever turns of phrase, goofy characters, a quest they don’t realize they’re on, all while poking fun at every fantasy book you’ve ever read. Terry Pratchett would be proud. . . . Simply fun to read.”Elitist Book Reviews

“A laugh-out-loud-funny fusion of Monty Python–esque humor and whimsy à la Terry Pratchett’s Discworld.”
Kirkus Reviews
 
“Reminiscent of William Goldman’s The Princess Bride and William Steig’s Shrek! Irreverent, funny, and full of entertaining wordplay, this will keep readers guessing until the end.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, clever AND a great story!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 August 2018
Many books manage or try to be clever, and this is often enough. Many books manage or try to be funny, and this is often enough. Many books have great stories, and this is often enough. This book manages all three with aplomb.
The witty references, not just limited to fantasy fiction, this will prove amusing to those who spot them but also will be fun for anyone who's not read the works referred to but then comes across them in the future. The plot moves at an engaging pace, the characters are likeable and unexpected (as are the baddies, of a sort) and nothing is quite what you'd expect.
Plus, the puns. Oh the puns!
I am very much looking forward to the next adventure in the series next year.
