This is the first Kelly book I've read but it will definitely not be the last one. I understand there is a whole host of Damsel books out there and other series as well. I swill be joyfully delving into this author's honey-pot for a long time to come.
This particular version of the Damsels series introduces us to some of the leading characters, all centered around the Rampant Damsel tavern in the Free City of Lurke. We get to meet the mine hosts of the tavern, the two rather large ladies; Brutehilde and Wee Minnie, plus the lascivious, nymphomaniac barmaid Sally, the equally sexual, but considerably rougher bouncer, Polly and a whole host of other characters, whose names alone will have you in stitches. Where does Kelly come up with these names? Just a few examples to whet your appetite; Captain Crapsack, a fairy named Honeymuff, Stonebrains, Scruffulus and many. many more.
If you like your comedy politically correct and free of double entendre, then step away from this book now and put it down. Kelly doesn't do politically correct and we are the lucky recipients of his fantastic sense of humour.
I love a book that doesn't seek to lecture, teach or do anything other than entertain you and make you laugh. Rampant Damsels will do that alright. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has a strong constitution (Kelly is good with disgusting descriptions) and anyone who loves a laugh at life and the futility of it sometimes.
Get into Rampant Damsels and get into Michael H Kelly. He is a talent to be reckoned with. Awesome Mr Kelly!
