Read by Gareth Davies

One man on a seemingly hopeless mission. The adventure starts here ...

Meet The Pan of Hamgee: coward, unwilling adventurer and, by some miracle, K’Barth’s longest surviving outlaw. He just wants a quiet life so working as getaway driver is probably a bad career move. Then he falls in love at first sight with a woman he hasn't even met who comes from an alternative reality. That’s when things really begin to get complicated.

Meet Ruth Cochrane: she’s the Chosen One, destined to play a pivotal role in saving K’Barth from a cruel dictator. She’s never heard of K’Barth, though. She’s a public relations executive from London and she’s totally unaware of the chaos about to hit her life.

Meet Lord Vernon: power hungry psychopath on the brink of world domination. He wants to cement his hold on K'Barth by kidnapping the Chosen One and forcing her to marry him. Only one person is standing in his way: someone who doesn’t even realise it, The Pan of Hamgee. For The Pan, and Ruth, that’s a deadly problem.

Here's what some independent reviewers say about the series ...

'Wonderful series

I enjoyed this series of books so much that I finished it in days. I usually spend weeks on my books but I could not stop listening. So much fun, great characters, fabulous narration... just the whole package. do yourself a favor and download this series and enjoy'. - SB on, 26 June 2020

'Excellent author - reminds me of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett
Absolutely wonderful book! The characters are flawed but lovable. Comedic timing is superb while keeping a terrific plot pace. Will purchase the entire series.' - Reading Family on Amazon, 18 May 2020

'Genuinely brilliant.
I have read a lot. I loved Douglas Adams' hitchhikers guide trilogy and nothing since has come anywhere near close until now. I am taken by surprise and was awaiting disappointment and didn't even expect to finish the book but this is a brilliant adventure with characters that I loved and believed. Thank you.' -

Lighthearted, hilarious and impossible to put down.
'Filled with great characters and a plot that cant be beaten. The Pan of Hamgee is a lovable coward and a realist in a unreal world, which pits him against everyone he comes across, no matter how much he tries to avoid them.
Its a great introduction to what Im sure is a great series. I wouldnt be surprised if there wasnt a movie deal in the works.' - Jeremy on Amazon, 17 April 2018

Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and now M. T. McGuire.
