This book rocks! The story line and characters are absurd yet loveable! The author makes you laugh out loud at every ridiculous scenario. What could be cooler than a sexy, cursed witch and her demon duck side kick?!!!

The book "A Nameless Witch" By A. Lee Martinez, published by Tor Books was an exceptional non-fictional piece of literature. Martinez's character choice was perfectly placed and described. This story is about a girl who was born with a curse that made her immortal and she only ate flesh, her parents casted her out of her life until a witch had bought her from them. Ghastly Edna accepted her into her home and decided to teach the unnamed child her ways. Her curse that she was born with had some issues a the fact that she only ate flesh, she can't stand the sunlight, and her immortality makes her beautiful. Which for a witch's case isn't great. She set out on a journey to descover herself along with a demonic duck named Newt, and a troll named Gwurm. She then settles into a town called Fort Stalwarts where she could stay and practice her witchery, but when a White Night crosses her path. He starts a lot of damage in Fort Stalwarts and will the witch have to fix it all? Will she fall for the night? Will her curse get in the way? I thought this was a great book because it was filled all kinds of magic and that demonic duck is just crazy. The witch has amazing adventures with her new found friends and she learns to have more christmas. I would recommand this book to anyone who likes exciting adventures, or who enjoy things about magic and funny ducks whos idea for solving things is killing them.

VERY strange story. Almost like a child's story. I'm not sure I'd read another book by this author but I enjoyed this one.

Not your average story, keeps you guessing and never boring.

I'm a huge fan of Mr. Martinez, but I have to say that this is by far one of my stand out favorites. A quest, a witch, cannibalism.... what more can one ask for?

There are a couple of low points in later installments of this author’s books, though at other times he picks things up. This journey is so straight-forward and generic, though, it is hard to say I enjoyed reading it. There is situational humor at times, and the sense of evil in this book is to be reckoned with. However, this book is unusually cast in the first person tense, which is not good when I find that character hard to relate to. I suppose at least one of the support cast made me smile at times, but there is not enough of a sense of impending importance in the journey to make the book worthwhile as, say, In The Company of Ogres. A product I would recommend is Sirens of Morning Light by Benjamin Anderson, a quest for a man in Iowa to regain his identity, which becomes entangled with people who claim to have known him when he discovers he is a scientific experiment. Though it follows a lead character, its viewpoint in the third person remains detached.

This book really does play into witch myths. It is funny to see it all played out.

This was my first book by Mr. Martinez, I picked it up because I had another one of his book coming out at my store, and wanted to see if he would be another author to add to my reading list. In A Nameless Witch, the titled (but untitled) heroine is a beautiful undead witch who embarks on a journey to avenge her teacher's death. Joining her are her demonic duck familiar, a friendly troll, and a handsome but celibate knight. The interaction among the characters is where you see Martinez's strengths shine the brightest. His quirky characters are never too silly and his dialog rolls off the page. It's not often a writer has the talent to create a sympathetic and likable heroine with a predisposition for the taste of human flesh, but Mr. Martinez has succeeded admirably. However Martinez doesn't seem to have figured out very much for these characters to do. The plot has a perfunctory feel. Four trials are established, and then dispatched almost as afterthoughts; we never feel any sense of danger to the protagonists. And there's not much at the end of the journey for anyone, including the readers. I was entertained on almost every page, but left feeling a little disappointed. Pick up this novel if you already like A. Lee Martinez, you like humorous fantasy, or you want a good fantasy light read.

This was a really good book. This was the first one I read from A. Lee Martinez and it had me hankering for more of his books. He has a good sense of humor and a very imaginative perspective on life. I simply love this book and this author!
