    A blast to read Full of fart and poop jokes, crazy swashbuckling antics, magic, mysteries and riddled with awful puns I ll definitely be readingabout Triumff should the author continue his story Anyone who enjoyed George MacDonald Fraser s Pyrates would probably enjoy the heck out of this one.

    A swashbuckling, comedic alternate history adventure should be exactly my kind of thing, so Triumff was a disappointment.It was dense, slow, and easy to put down every few pages The pace stalled from descriptions and digressions that weren t worth the word count, and the gags that worked were run into the ground References were often passed off as humor Every time that Serjeant Clinton Eastwoodho arrived on the scene, whether sprouting his catchphrase Do you feel opportune, punk or intro A swashbuckling, comedic alternate history adventure should be exactly my kind of thing, so Triumff was a disappointment.It was dense, slow, and easy to put down every few pages The pace stalled from descriptions and digressions that weren t worth the word count, and the gags that worked were run into the ground References were often passed off as humor Every time that Serjeant Clinton Eastwoodho arrived on the scene, whether sprouting his catchphrase Do you feel opportune, punk or introducing the hero to a gadget man named Kew, I came close to sti...

    Not a bad book by any means but quite clearly an homage to Black Adder II Other inspiration was probably drawn from Granny Weatherwax from Pratchett s booksDecent effort but nothing to write home about.

    I didn t finish this book, life is too short to read poorly written book Someone told the author that the most important literary device is alliteration.
