Surrounded by all creatures gruesome and grotesque, Thisby Thestoop, the gamekeeper for the Black Mountain Dungeon, is getting roped into another job—saving the princess's skin—in the debut fantasy-adventure series by Zac Gorman, contributor to the hilarious Rick and Morty comic series.In the absurd land of Nth, Thisby Thestoop can be found within the forlorn walls of Castle Grimstone, down the precarious steps of the Black Mountain dungeon, up to her nose in griffon toenails, gnoll spittle, and troll meat (to give to them, not made of them). When the prince and princess arrive for a Royal Inspection, the much too good-looking Princess Iphigenia winds up lost in the tunnels of the dungeon—without her guards, her staff, or her younger twin brother—and it's up to Thisby to guide the princess safely past the hoards of minotaurs, wyverns, ghouls, and who-knows-what-else that would love nothing more than to nosh the royal highness for dinner.Thisby Thestoop and Princess Iphigenia have a dangerous adventure ahead of them. If they're going to a rescue the missing prince, stop a mounting war, and keep safe all the creatures who call the mountain dungeon home, they'll have to learn how to trust each other.Don't miss the first book in this rollicking new fantasy-adventure series from debut author Zac Gorman!

I quite enjoyed this audiobook. Moira Quirk does an excellent job reading the book, which is fun, quirky, and quite funny. It's a great premise that might be of interest to fans of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Thesby and Iphigenia are girls who both have interesting personalities and their interaction involves ideas about the difference between social classes and their lifestyles. Their burgeoning friendship (spoiler?) is a treat to listen to as it develops.
