Elberon messed up big time. After beating the king in magical combat, his glorious victory was short-lived when the royally pissed-off loser exiled him to a life of petty thievery… despite being his son. But when he stumbles upon an ancient Screaming Skull, he can’t decide what’s worse: the bloodthirsty murderous monsters it keeps summoning or the fact that the fleshless bony head just won’t shut up.
And as if a jaw-dropping villainous boss wasn’t distracting enough, Elberon and his rockin’ warrior crew must take on a child-eating fiend beneath the city. But when it appears a dark wizard is behind the chaotic mayhem, this low-level adventurer must exchange his beer for a sword to change his doubly doomed fate. Can Elberon cheat death and save his realm, or will he fall victim to his own foul-mouthed delusions?
The Screaming Skull is the outlandish first volume in The Chronicles of Elberon heavy-metal fantasy trilogy. If you like hapless heroes, time-jumping storytelling, and breaking the fourth wall, then you’ll love Rick Ferguson’s sidesplitting epic.
