"In The Company of Ogres" - A Lee Martinez

This is a fun book.  quick reading.  a quirky twist on the fantasy fiction genre.

a military base staffed by ogres, goblins, humans, elves and orcs and more.

wizards and minor deities fighting and a single nare do well named Never Dead Ned is stuck in the middle of it all.

Did I mention it was fun? cuz it is.

By The Way,  you can pretty much pick up any of A Lee Martinez's books and get a fun, fast read.  He is definitely an up and coming author  to watch.

not an author i have read.  will have to look for him.  sometimes light and funny is just the ticket!   :-D
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.
Alexis de Tocqueville

he is my current favorite "headache" author.

When  I have a really bad headache,  I find that reading something fun and fictional helps to make it go away.  It helps it dissipate a bit at the very least.  Every one of A Lee's books is good for a mental escape and easy on the head.

I thought it was a history of the Obama administration.
