"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.

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.
