Publisher's Summary

The complete K'Barthan series box set: All four novels in one huge audiobook

All The Pan of Hamgee wants is a quiet life. 

So why did he have to fall in love with a woman living a different version of reality, upset a murderous tyrant, and then run out of places to hide? 

Now all he has to do is face his inner demons, rescue everything he holds dear, and save the world, or die trying. 

Oh yes, and he's an abject coward.  

Great. No pressure then. 

Contains a little light swearing. 

Suggested cinema rating: PG  

A word with the author

Q - What made you write the K'Barthan series? Why is it special?

A - You know the saying: that if the book you want doesn't exist you have to write it? That. I love funny British authors, comedic sci fi, epic fantasy, adventure, action, humour - or humor. Misfit characters are great, the weirder the better and an evil baddie, of course. This stuff is a mash up of everything I love: James Bond-style flying cars, car chases, static powered laser guns, portals that move you from one place to another and a hero we can all cheer for. K'Barth is kind of first contact, only not. There are many quirky characters, from 6ft Swamp Things with antennae to cute furry Blurpons with fluffy ears, big button eyes and penchant for extreme violence. It's earth but hey, reality is a bit boring so I pimped it and set it in a parallel reality. Even so, the eternal questions the characters in K'Barth face tend to mirror ours.

Q - What are the other books in K'Barthan Series?

There is a 30 minute short prequel, Unlucky Dip, and a series of shorts "K'Barthan Shorts", "Hamgeean Misfit".

Both are also read by Gareth Davies. You can join via the info page for "Unlucky Dip" on her website here: www.hamgee.co.uk/audioud.html.

Thoroughly enjoyed

This series was a lot of fun. Lots of drama and turns and not too much frustration. Real problems, not just created by characters. And the characters themselves are generally deeper and dynamic, not a lot of dull or flat, one-sided characters. And the naming had me constantly cracking up. Fun read.

Great voicework, better than the story deserved

Tried too hard to show difference through silly sounding names. Protagonist was mind bogglingly dense.

Incredible narration and a funny, compelling story

The story is funny, develops in unexpected ways and has one of the best narrations I ever heard. Also it is veeery long so it is good value for money if you want something for travels.

Totally and Pleasantly Surprised

I was by no means sure about this choice for the first couple of chapters but Oh Dear!! This Box set grabbed me firmly and took me on one of the most entertaining rides since being an Audible Member.
My one and only disappointment was when I'd finished it as I could have continued almost ad infinitum! The narrator Gareth Davies has got an amazing voice repertoire.
M T McGuire really should get some more of her work on Audible - the sooner the better

Most Excellent Entertainment.

Oh do please write more like ths for Audible - I So much enjoyed this!
