Kurzbeschreibung

An ordinary, money-grubbing Merchant struggling to make a coin off penniless, incompetent adventurers is forced to take on the impossible quest of saving his town and rescuing the woman he loves from a treacherous and powerful Wizard. A battle of wit, wits and haggling that is part homage to, part skewer of the richly worked and often overwrought fantasy genre.

An artful, satire of dungeon crawls and cRPG's, the Merchant Adventurer is part Princess Bride, part Dungeon Pawn Stars and a rollicking good read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Really fun, beautifully written, and hilarious! 23. Januar 2014
Von Dan Absalonson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book by Patrick E. McLean was awesome. I listened to the audiobook narrated by the author. He is a fantastic narrator. His delivery of all the characters' lines were so good. He got the voice for the protagonist perfectly. The wizard and an interesting Orc character - I distinctly remember them all and they were unique and interesting voices that really brought the story alive and made the fantastic dialog shine. Now onto the story.

I really enjoyed the story. I was never bored, which sadly I can't say about many novels. First off, I love adventure stories. This was an adventure story that was very different. You can tell by the title. What? A merchant going on an adventure? Yes. But he's what you might expect from Patrick, a character who uses his brains and wit to get what he wants. He's not swinging a sword. He's not out for glory. He never set out to be a hero.

As much as I love fantasy for all its tropes, it was refreshing to read a story with a very different kind of protagonist. The wizard was a great character too. A bit of what we expect except when it comes to his personality. He was a fun antagonist.

Another great thing about this story is that I was never able to guess what was going to happen next. In a way that Boltak the main character might say it: "This ain't your ordinary fantasy adventure kid." Something else I liked was the prose. Usually it was snappy witty dialogue that had me laughing a lot. Sometimes, however, there were remarkable phrases elegantly describing things of beauty. More quiet moments where you weren't waiting for the next laugh but carefully reading or listening to each word. When you get to chapter 37 you'll see what I mean. Great writing. So I gave this novel a 5 star rating because it was a blast to read, had fantastic writing, and I'm really glad I gave it a go.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great characters and take on the fantasy genre 8. Februar 2014
Von B. Press - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I really enjoyed this satirical look at the Fantasy genre. It's the Galaxy Quest of fantasy novels. With really endearing characters that are self-aware and engaging. I would very much look forward to more adventures of the merchant adventurer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Snarky Fantasy? I. Love. It. 23. Januar 2014
Von Jaguargenie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I don't know where to start. I have loved almost everything that has come from Patrick McLean. I saw this appear in a random search and thought 'this can't possibly be what I think it is!'
The stage for this book is set in a Medieval town where heros are more muscle than gray matter, and every cliche that you can think of is heaped upon them to hilarious effect. The knight is even wearing Shining (trademarked) Armor. I kid you not.
I laughed continuously for the first 50% of the book or so. The third quarter gets a little weighed down by philosophical questions about 'who is a hero' and 'what makes you happy' but recovers in fine form. The plot goes place you wouldn't quite think either. I don't want to spoil anything, but when the story takes turns they are out of left field.
The characters are what really makes this book though. You have your main character (who I can't even call a Hero) Boltac. He is a merchant who could be a combination of any number of stereotypes for shrewd merchants. You never, at any point dislike him though. As the story goes on though, it gets harder not to root for him. I have to mention Relan when talking about characters. Fantastic doesn't begin. He is a perfect foil for Boltac. Logic vs. idealism, logic vs. heroism, logic vs. idiotic bravery (you get the idea).
Pick this up. It is so well worth it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Wonderful Adventure for the Everyman 16. Februar 2014
Von Thomas S. H. Hansen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This story takes an enjoyably cynical look at adventuring for all of us folks that read or watch fantasy stories and go "Yeah, Right." I had many laughs and was never bored in the story telling. You're going to enjoy the ride and hear your own voice in any of the characters at any time. Seriously, why haven't you read this yet?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Love this Story 13. Januar 2014
Von Christine Linder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Love, Love, love the Merchant Adventurer. I sat down to sample it and could not stop. It is charming, funny, sarcastic and crazy. It is a light romp through the realm with a little brooklynese thrown in, a fun fable to get lost in.
