Beth's Review: Sword Dude 2 by Kent Hill
APC PUBLISHER: Night Sky Book Services
NARRATOR: J. Scott Bennett RELEASED: August 3, 2018 GENRE: FANTASY, ACTION ADVENTURE LENGTH: 3 hours and 18 minutes FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK, AUDIBLE
Every cheap little barbarian movie deserves a sequel. But abiding by the laws of straight-to-video sword and sorcery, the sequel doesn't always continue the story. They're crazier, funny, and often far removed from the mythology laid down by the film which preceded them. So, in keeping with this formula, comes Sword Dude 2. The continuing adventures of the hero also known as the Dude of Swords. He's back, by popular demand, fighting killing, playing it cool, and saving the girl in this phantasmagoric romp into realms fantastic. His adventures take him to far flung stars, doing battle, bringing bad luck, constantly getting it on with an intergalactic princess and all the while preparing for a showdown with a bad guy who was only recently certified a sorcerer. So come back for the awesomeness, come back for the action, come back for the scantily clad women! Sword Dude 2. The greatest warrior who ever lived and the greatest sequel ever released... FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
I think I can safely say that this book is hilarious. Sword Dude 2 is funny in the inappropriately stupid way. It’s like the Sword Dude is some kind of Alien superhero in a world full of dumb and dumber people. It’s the literary version of Spaceballs, only with more sex and drunkenness. Makes me think of the cat with no hair that’s so ugly it’s cute; this is so stupid it’s funny. Sword Dude 2 is another 4 star book to me.
