An Amazing Audio-tale by Drew Hayes
I thought I was taking a chance on Second Hand Curses, by Drew Hayes, but instead, I found myself wondering why I'd never found the book before! It was free, funny, and so original in its storyline that I am hoping there will be more. Many more!
Second Hand Curses is freaking hilarious! It's a book of three books. Sorta. It's about three characters who take on a type of Robin Hood business, but they collect payment. And instead of robbing the rich to give to the poor, they help those who've been plagued by curse, trick or bamboozle.
Jack, the leader is known for jumping candlesticks, planting beanstalks and killing giants. His friends call themselves the Bastard Champions, but they find their gallant rescues and more are leading to one source: THE fairy godmother of the land. She's been up to no good for a long time, and they aim to stop her. But the closer they get to her, the further away she appears to be. It's like she's two steps ahead of every move they make!. Are they chasing her or being lured?
This book is so darned funny. I loved it from the very beginning, when Cinderella is admitting to the Bastard Champions that she'd ben fooled by her bippity boppity boo'ing god mother. When they help her, they find they need to help someone else. And so on, until they realize they have to go to a distant land in order to finally get what they want.
Second Hand Curses was left open for a follow up book and I'm so ready to read it. It's silly, but the way it was written, and the use of character voices made it even more adventurous. I love audio dramas and this is one for my library. I won't ever grow tired of this one. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
