AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Arrabella Candellarbra is like no one you've ever met before; even though her questy thing is the stuff of legend.

'Okay, it's a hilarious epic-fantasy spoofery kind of legend. Arrabella, a beautiful, flaxen-haired maiden trained in all things warrior-like by the most famous warriors of all - The Reginas - embarks on a quest to claim her birthright and to wield the power of all the lands. Nothing could possibly go wrong on a quest like this, could it?

'Well just you wait until Arrabella joins forces with Lord Langly Kilkenny - the perfect specimen of manliness; icicle-bearded Gary - the wisest of all Wizards; and Prince Jim - the very-fey fairy Regent. Why? Because the Four Adventurers soon find themselves pitted against the Evil Betty-Sue - the meanest of evil beings in all of the lands. Again, why? Because they must battle Betty-Sue and her scary minions - the Saw-Toothed Bunnies, the Viscous Tongued Frogs and the Barella Monkeys - to rescue The Reginas from...something!

'Arrabella Candellarbra and the Questy Thing to End All Questy Things features heroic heroes and a host of characters and creatures never before assembled in one story. It delivers love and lust, action and inaction, battles, incantations, sexual shenanigans and high-kicking sing-a-longs. And it promises that all those epic questy things will never be the same again.' (From the publisher's website.)
