Praise for Delilah S. Dawson and Kevin Hearne’s Kill the Farm Boy

“A rollicking fantasy adventure that upends numerous genre tropes in audacious style . . . a laugh-out-loud-funny fusion of Monty Python–esque humor and whimsy à la Terry Pratchett’s Discworld.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Dawson and Hearne’s reimagining of a traditional fairy tale is reminiscent of William Goldman’s The Princess Bride and William Steig’s Shrek! Irreverent, funny, and full of entertaining wordplay, this will keep readers guessing until the end.”Library Journal

“Will have you laughing out loud until strangers begin to look at you oddly.”SyFy

“A smart comedy . . . nuanced, complicated, and human.”Tordotcom

“[Dawson and Hearne] make fun of the typical ‘white male power fantasies,’ and in that, they succeed, with their heroes all characters of color and/or falling somewhere under the LGBTQ umbrella.”Publishers Weekly

“When you put two authors of this high caliber together, expect fireworks. Or at least laughs. What a hoot!”—Terry Brooks

“A rollicking adventure about friendship and finding one’s place in the world . . . [a] fantastic series finale. Dawson and Hearne crown their trifecta of tempestuous hilarity with enough puns and fairy tale spoofs to tickle anyone’s funny bone.”
Booklist (starred review)
“Challenge[s] gender roles in fantasy and skewer[s] social trends . . . This is a clever send-up of fantasy tropes and modern culture.”
Publishers Weekly
