Funny Fruit

by Grant and Gary Reed

After ninety years of warring, exploring, and saving the realm, brothers Yarl and Fonn, must take up the title of Master again. If they don’t, someone else will surely steal all the fame, glory, and fertile women. How will they ever train new apprentices, save the kingdom, and still find time to fit in that extra order of chicken wings? Make no mistake, the old Masters have a lot to pass on and only a short timeframe to do it.
Will young Garrett flourish as an apprentice Sworvei? Can his partner Azilda master the ‘Nesting Nightingale’? And who in hell invited the ogres?
Join this rag-tag group of ‘Protectors of the Realm’ to see if they can pull off the biggest upset of the Continental Games, by saving young King Renli from the clutches of the evil First General.

excerpt

 

Leadbelly hit the edge of the jungle with a snarl and disappeared. The group could hear the loud snapping of twigs and foliage as whatever was out there took off at a run. Loud crashing noises faded into the distance indicating whatever it was, was uprooting whole trees as it went. Bronwan reached for a cutlass and Willie fumbled with his flinger and a rock. Alex and Jr. held onto each other for dear life. Terror was etched upon the young man’s face.

 

From within the jungle a horrible scream split the night. “EEEEEEEOOWWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!” The thumping and thrashing faded into the distance as the scream echoed across the bay.

 

“Wild ogre,” whispered Alex Sr. “Seen a couple of em snooping around from time to time. A lot of the men have gone missing. No doubt they fell easy prey to such fierce creatures. Fangs and claws on them long enough to pierce a man right through.”

 

“What about Leadbelly?” Azilda asked of Master Fonn, concern visible in her eyes.

 

Master Fonn looked as if he’d been concentrating. “Very strange,” he muttered. “Yes oh yes, Leadbelly, I’m sure he’ll be fine. Probably be back shortly, no need to worry about our little friend, he can take care of himself no doubt.”

 

Bronwan and Willie both lowered their weapons and reached for more driftwood to stoke the fire. “I’ll take first watch,” said Bronwan. “There’s no point in leaving anything to chance.” Azilda moved to sit beside Fonn, her eyes scanning the jungle for signs of her dog.

This is a prequel to the Vellian series by Grant and Gary Reed.
The plot follows youngsters Garrett and Azilda as they train to protect the realm of Fable. Their masters are the 90 year old Yarl and Fonn who teach them the skills they need as they go from one quest to another. Will Garrett become an apprentice Sworvei? Will they save the King?

I was worried when I started the book that I may be disadvantaged as I hadn’t read the Vellian series however, it is easy to become engrossed without any previous reading. I was laughing from the first page and continued to do so until the end. The characters are well written and hilarious making the story come to life. It is a great read that truly surprised me full of action, humour, twists and turns throughout.

A fantastic book by great authors. I would recommend to anyone who loves action and humour. I will definitely seek out the authors again. 4 fangs.

  1. If you were a super hero, what would your name be? What costume would you wear?

  2. Thanks for hosting.

  3. Mai,

    Hmmmm….I’d probably be “Fisherboy.” He flies across the lake quicker than any waterfowl. Able to launch his boat where other men turn back, his steely determination always nets him his quarry.

    My outfit would have to include a life jacket and a big old floppy sun hat!

  4. I have enjoyed learning about the book. Thanks for sharing it.

  5. LOVE the cover! Sounds like a great book! Thank you for sharing!
