Review

"Fans of Douglas Adams will happily sink their teeth into this combo platter of raunchy laughs and ectoplasmic ecstasy."---"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) on "Gil""'s All Fright Diner""[A] laugh-out-loud comic fantasy that should appeal to fans of Terry Brooks's Landover novels."---"Library Journal" on "Gil's All Fright Diner" "Delightfully droll, this comic romp will be a crowd-pleaser."--"Booklist" on "Gil's All Fright Diner" "Can a vampire find true love with a ghost? Can a teenage witch open the gates of Hell? Anything can happen in A. Lee Martinez's wacky debut."--Charlaine Harris, bestselling author of "Dead to the World""" "Martinez's follow-up to "Gil's All Fright Diner "is as joyfully fast paced and funny. "In the Company of Ogres "tweaks fantasy cliches most excellently."--"Booklist" "Martinez's broad humor should appeal to fans of the late Douglas Adams and other contemporary authors of comic fantasy."--"Library Journal" on "In the Company of Ogres"

Product Description

A tale of vengeance, true love, and cannibalism
 
Being born undead can have its disadvantages, such as eternal youth and flawless beauty  ---things most unsuitable for a witch. Hiding behind the guise of a grimy old crone, the witch is content living outside Fort Stalwart with her unlikely band of allies: a troll named Gwurm, an enchanted broom, and a demonic duck named Newt. She leads a simple life filled with spells, potions, and the occasional curse.
 
So when a White Knight arrives at Fort Stalwart, the witch knows her days of peace are at an end. The Knight is just days in front of a horde of ravenous goblings, and Fort Stalwart lies right in the horde's path. But the goblings are just the first wave of danger, and soon the witch and the Knight must combine forces on a perilous quest to stop a mad sorcerer from destroying the world.
 
Filled with menace, monsters, and magic, A Nameless Witch is a properly witchly read by the award-winning author of Gil's All Fright Diner and In the Company of Ogres.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for children! 5 Mar 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was quite a good read.
It took me a while to work out if the book was meant for children or adults ... but there are parts in the story that sex is mentioned. Good for teenagers.
The characters are quite funny, not really much of a plot. But a good, light read if you fancy a book to make you chuckle a bit ... but that you dont have to think about.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like humour in fantasy try this 13 July 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you have never tried A Lee Martinez, where have you been? His charracters are very well written and the plots tend to surprise. I have a few of his books now and not one of them is a dud! If you like Christopher Moore, Pratchett, Rankin you will like Martinez very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars bewitching! 3 Jun 2009
By emma
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm not one for writing reviews, this is my first, and probably last, but it seemed a crime to pass by a book i loved so much and leave it with no stars!
It funny fantasy with twists and turns about a carnivorous witch and her killer duck, you won't be disappointed if you fancy a supernatural rollercoaster ride! LOVED it!

Also, check out Gil's All Fright Diner by the same author, it has become one of my favourite books, and for that i'd give it 10 stars if i could, and because of my love of vampires, ghosts, werewolves, zombies and diners!! and the fact that it is also a wickedly funny read!!

“To worry is to acknowledge that the world is unpredictable, and there is power in understanding one’s own powerlessness at times. But too often, worry takes on a life of its own. Men are quite prone to this. They’ll plague themselves with so many ‘what if’s and ‘if only’s that they soon forget to ponder the true possibilities before them. Which inevitably leads to poor decisions. Whatever happens will happen. Sometimes we have say over the future. Sometimes we do not. Either way, worrying alone never accomplishes anything.” &quote;
