Overview

A wedding gone horribly wrong...
A wizard's revenge...
A wild adventure across the Eleven Kingdoms...

Turnip farmer-turned-hero Jason Cosmo is sure the royal wedding between his wizard friend Mercury Boltblaster and Queen Raella of Raelna will go off without a hitch. But when an assassin's crossbow cuts the ceremony short, Jason and Mercury embark on a mission of bloody vengeance while the Eleven Kingdoms are plunged into war. Enemies old and new bar the way, but nothing will deter our heroes in their relentless hunt for the killers. Not madmen, not monsters, not the mind-altering magic of a maniacal mastermind — not even a giant fire-breathing pig can stop them!

Yet when the trail leads to the demonic doorstep of the Dark Magic Society, Jason and Mercury must face their worst fears brought to life. And that never ends well. (Well, rarely.)

ROYAL CHAOS is the second volume of the classic Jason Cosmo Non-Trilogy, preceded by JASON COSMO and followed by DIRTY WORK.

PRAISE FOR THE JASON COSMO SERIES

"Energetic fantasy adventure...McGirt seems prepared to stoop to the lowest literary levels to set up a joke...gleefully employs coincidence, improbability, and a downright flouting of the laws of narrative.”
—Publishers Weekly

"It’s a very funny fantasy."
—Beat Scene

    A Great Fantasy Read For All Ages!

    I loved this adventurous, laugh-out-loud book. Dan McGirt writes a fun fantasy story that doesn't take itself too seriously, with characters that face danger on a regular basis while balancing their involvement with magic, evil wizards and warlords, and the Gods. I'm eager to see what Dan will do with the hero Jason Cosmo next. In this, the second book in the non-trilogy, Jason, the most feared man in the Eleven Kingdoms forced to live with the image as a terrible marauder who eats babies for breakfast and drinks blood for wine, along with Merc, Cosmo's best friend, team up to avenge the death of his bride at their wedding. On the way, they'll slowly yet surely learn of the treachery of the Dark Magic Society and who the mastermind behind the Queen's death is. They'll endanger themselves to dangerous potions with scary life altering warning labels, hunger for Burgher Lord, witness the Orphalians wage war which is more like going to a Barnum and Bailey Ringling Brothers Circus, and so much more. I recommend this highly entertaining, funny, fast-paced, fantasy/adventure book to all who simply enjoy having a good time. It's great for all ages; pre-teens, teens, and adults.
