CHARACTERS ì eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ Matthew Hughes

In the Penultimate Age of the Archonate callow young fop Filidor Vesh is perfectly content to spend his days in the pursuit of shallow amusements until he is summoned by a wizened old dwarf in need of a voluntary go. Filidor nephew and sole remaining heir of the Archon has been kind of a dandy He is at a club partying with his superficial friends when he gets a summons to see the Archon It s a dwarf that has carried the message who recognizes that Filidor will try to suirm his way out of the meeting and won t let him out of his sight They go to Binch to find they ve just missed him the same thing at Ektop Zeel and JaspAt each of these stops Filidor runs into trouble with the monomaniacal natives where he has a hazardous and bizarre adventure Even traveling between the towns turns out to be full of risks Throw in an evil wizard that wants the box that Filidor is supposed to deliver to the ArchonThere is humor that offsets the repetitiveness and each location has its own monomania After the second time that Gaskarth leaves Filidor alone to go to the local Archonate office I would have expected him to try to accompany the dwarf Other than that Filidor does learn along the way which is the point of the story How he started off avoiding meaningful endeavors and now sees that sort of life is a waste even though the adventures have been terrifying and dangerousI was pleased that before the climax we get a brief explanation of why the territories collapse into monomania Still way out there but it was something Fast read humor a couple of really LOL situations and although the townspeople were stereotyped for their region the character of Filidor was well rounded
