Publisher's Summary

In the grand tradition of Blackadder and Monty Python and the Holy Grail is the story of an anti-hero who can't help but find his way to greatness whether he likes it or not.   

Apropos is a rogue, a rascal, a scoundrel, a cheat...and those are his good points. Lame of leg but fast of wit, the only reason Apropos doesn't consider chivalry dead is because he's not yet through with it. An orphan with a chip on his shoulder, Apropos, travels to the court of the good King Runcible, with three goals in mind: to find his father, seek retribution for the death of his mother, and to line his own pockets. 

However, Apropos carries the most troublesome burden a would-be harbinger of chaos can bear: He may well be a hero foretold, a young man of destiny. It is not a notion that Apropos finds palatable, having very low regard for such notions as honor, selflessness, or risking one's neck. Yet when Apropos finds himself assigned as squire to the most senile knight in the court - Sir Umbrage of the Flaming Nether Regions, whose squires tend to have a rather short life span - Apropos is forced to rise to the occasion lest he be dragged under - permanently."

fun, give a try

I enjoyed this. GraphicAudio has a great cast. The reader for Apropos does an outstanding job. Apropos is the kind of chacater at times you love to hate; at others you hate to love. Hope there are more books.

Surprisingly Good

Honestly I was struggling to enjoy the story as the main character is one of the least likable protagonists I've come across. However the character development makes it all come together nicely. In the end I ended up truly enjoying it. Minor note a few lines get repeated due to editing errors but it's maybe twice.
