I received a copy of this book a while back and it sat, waiting patiently, on my iPad for several months before I got around to reading it. Let me just say that I wish I would have read it sooner!

The story focuses on Klondaeg, a fearless monster-killing dwarf who roams the countryside, along with his talking axe, looking for bigger and badder things to kill. He encounters a colorful mix of characters, from the princess of the bird people to a mischievous creature called Clayborn. I was never really certain if he was bad or good!

This is a fun fantasy adventure story that sweeps you in and has you sitting on the edge of your seat as Klondaeg battles his numerous foes. I thought the story was very well written. I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times as Klondaeg's gruff nature doesn't particularly care for a monster-free world.

I didn't really have any criticques for this story. I didn't see any editing mistakes or typos, but that was probably because I was too caught up in the dwarf's exploits to care. :) My only gripe? I wish it was longer!

Treat yourself to a fun read. You won't be disappointed!

Klondaeg The Monster Hunter takes place in the same universe that Steve Thomas created in his short story Smite Me, Oh Dark One. He continues to use this particular realm to tell stories of humorous fantasy. Klongaeg is a dwarf whose obsession is killing monsters. With a sentient ax that has two distinct personalities, one for each face, he is pretty constantly engaged in amusing banter.

This is not a book for someone who is looking for a serious dark fantasy, it is fantastic for people who want a series of light reads. Klondaeg is a straightforward character whose goal is to destroy all monsters in hopes of getting revenge on the one that killed his parents. As he travels he meets up with all kinds of people that help him along the way. They are generally interesting characters that expose a new facet of Klondaeg's character.

As I really enjoyed Smite Me this book was right up my alley and from my understanding there is another collection being written right now. I'm very much looking forward to seeing what other adventures are in store for Klondaeg and his crew.

A entertaining enough book at times but nothing I would right home about, it was relatively cheap so for the money it was ok

5.0 out of 5 stars Very very entertaining 1 Nov. 2012
By mensagrrrl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First, this book is genuinely funny from cover to cover, with no slow moments, no preaching, no sentimentality, and no crutches. The laughs keep coming, deftly woven into an interesting story and a well rounded universe. It helps, by the way, to read the short story "Smite Me Oh Dark one" to explain the gods (especially Acerbus, O'Plenty, and the fall of the bird-people).

Klondaeg the Dwarf is a welcome addition to comic fantasy within the first few pages, and has the hallmark of all great characters - he seems to have always existed. His dual-personality ax is sort of the brains of the group, and he seems to travel with a shape changing gnome of dubious loyalty. His approach is "Hack-n-slash" and that approach never fails him. When in doubt, beat everything to a pulp and sort the pulp out later.

This book is an excellent example of light comic fantasy, a type that is apparently very difficult to do well, because there aren't very many examples of it being written. You can wait for Terry Pratchett to write one, or, now, you can wait for Steve Thomas to write another one.

Is Steve Thomas a pen name? It seems odd that someone with this much skill would just spring up out of nowhere. Either way, he'll get famous pretty fast. If you'd like a few hours of relaxed fun, get this book, but be ready to want another one at the end.
5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, fast-moving fantasy tale 24 Jan. 2014
By LunarmommyK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Klondaeg's philosophy in life is simple: kill all the monsters. With the help of his trusty talking double-headed axe, King's Rest (the name is literal), he goes about attempting to do just that, in the hopes of eventually taking revenge on the unknown monster who killed his parents. Along the way, he encounters supposedly extinct bird people, a hero resigned to the prophecy of doom upon his head, gnome werewolves, and undead magma goats.

This is a funny, well-written, and fast-moving tale that takes on a lot of the major fantasy tropes, including magical weapons, prophecies, gods, heroes, and pretty much every fantasy race there is (and some completely new ones) and turns them upside down. It's silly, but beneath the silliness there's clever wordplay, engaging characters, exciting adventures and fight scenes, and some impressively creative worldbuilding (you have to love a pantheon that includes a Goddess of Whatever Passes For Love These Days).

Highly recommended, and when you finish it, be sure to have the sequel, Klondaeg and the Klondaeg Hunters, on hand so you can dive right in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read it, and be sure to read "Smite Me Oh Dark One" as well! 27 Aug. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Klondaeg is such a fun read! Anyone who wants some wit, humor and fantasy (it's somewhat Munchkin-esque - very genre-conscious and self-mocking, but with the basis to pull it off). I read this and "Smite Me, Oh Dark One" and found much to laugh out loud about. Thomas' work is full of humor and adventure and well worth the price. "Smite Me Oh Dark One" had the fabulous bonus of being narrated by the "antagonist" of the universe that both books are set in. Readers who enjoyed it are sure to be pleased at Acerbus' return in "Klondeag". But there's plenty new to love, my favorite of which is the 'schizophrenic' and quite vocal enchanted axe! The pages without the axe (I'm not going to tell you why or how) were quite distressing, but Klondeag's bloodthirstiness and peculiar practicality (he does have a very simple philosophy after all) will keep readers amused while they wait for the conclusion of Klondaeg's epic quest to avenge the death of his parents. And you won't believe all the trouble ... um... epic adventures ... he finds along the way, or the way everything ties together - the Goddess Perpleksga would be proud. On that note, don't forget that the 'g' in Klondaeg is silent, and enjoy the ride! :)
5.0 out of 5 stars Great funny and entertaining read! 1 July 2015
By Eric M Hamilton - Published on Amazon.com

This is humorous sword and sorcery (or should I say "axe and sorcery"?) at its best. The book is written as a series of inter-connected episodes, that pulls everything together by the end. I really loved the interaction between the dwarf, Klondaeg, and his cursed axe with two personalities. The world of Klondaeg is filled with interesting and unique personality and mythology that takes fantasy tropes and turns them on their head in humorous and interesting ways. This is a really fun and entertaining read, and this series only gets better as it continues.
4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun 3 Nov. 2015

Once you get a feel for the author, the characters, and the narrative, then this book is tremendous fun. You're just waiting for the hero to crash into new adventures! Just started the second book, and it's fun in the same vein.
