It’s Monday morning, everyone! And what better way to start the week than with a new book? How about a comedy by yours truly?
The Quest for the Holy Something or Other is a Pythonesque romp through the Realm of Camelot that is sure to have your sides splitting. The story centers around a young gong farmer named Pig who dreams of the glories of Camelot. Her dreams become reality–or so she thinks–when she becomes Sir Kay’s page. What starts off as a joke soon becomes the adventure of Pig’s life when Merlin sends the knights on a quest for the Holy Gift Box–er–Bread Basket–whatever it is! On their quest, they face many knight-worthy, and some not-so-knight-worthy, foes: an insane pond dweller, several greedy salespeople, and an overzealous cache seeker, all the while fighting against time, mostly each other, and the most infamous villain of all—change. The Quest for the Holy Something or Other is a fresh and funny take on a well-known legend, with engaging characters, some rather good jokes, and something that starts with S, but it isn’t important.
So far, the novel’s received only 4 and 5 star ratings and some rather flattering reviews:
“There is a gentle humour running throughout the book . . .The author hasn’t gone solely for cheap laughs; If you like your comedic fantasy funny, subversive and free of get-out-of-jail-free magic, this is the book to start 2015 with!”
“Kylie Betzner should be congratulated on finding her own voice where she could quite easily have copied another’s. As a debut, this bodes well for the future.”
“Fresh, funny, inventive, irreverent. Well worth a read! It’s an original and comic take on the Arthurian legend, subverting every trope found along the way.”
“This debut by Kylie Betzner is a great first book and should keep you chuckling all the way through.”
