A missing prince who's a hemp farmer. An orc full of cliches. A wizard apprentice starting his first Fate Quest.
Gungren is tired of waiting to become a full-fledged wizard. Unfortunately for him, Whizzfiddle isn't one who takes well to his apprentices pushing him around. But when the Fates decide to give one of their infamous quests to Gungren, it leaves Whizzfiddle with little choice but to lend his support. Unbeknownst to Whizzfiddle, though, the quest is only part one of three.
They must travel to the Underworld in order to find and save the prince. But getting there isn't easy, especially since they have to bring along Princess Jill Henroot, who is the fiancée of the missing prince, and who happens to be quite a pain in the rump. Worse, the Fates have decided to film the entire adventure, making for one problem after another.
It also seems there was something more to the original spell that had transformed Gungren from a dumb giant into the smart, squat, wizard wanna-be, and this set of quests may be the only thing to save him from reverting to what he once was...
The Kidnapped Prince is the fun fifth book in the Ononokin comedic fantasy series. If you enjoy great characters, fantasy worlds that don't take themselves too seriously, and seeing standard tropes turned upside down, then you'll love John P. Logsdon and Christopher P. Young's humorous fantasy adventure.
Fans of Terry Pratchett, Robert Asprin, Piers Anthony, Discworld, Xanth, Myth Adventures, and/or Monty Python will have a blast with the hilarious Ononokin series.
