Publisher's Summary

The Hungry Dragon Cookie Company - it sounds crazy, but it might just be Timmy’s ticket to financial security and a fully renovated castle.

To earn a pardon and avoid prison or execution, Timmy, Grand Necromancer and Lord of Black Tower Castle, has been completing missions for the Council with the help of an elite team of truly heroic individuals.

There’s Katie, his apprentice. She’s brilliant, cunning, and maniacally devious. She’s also 10 years old, extremely adorable, and loves billowy robes and the color pink.

There’s Avraniel, the pyromaniac elf who is responsible for more property damage than anyone in Everton’s history (including dragons, natural disasters, and demon gods).

There’s Gerald, the hyperventilating bureaucrat who is at the top of every monster’s menu.

There’s Old Man, a retired legendary swordsman whose hobbies include bonsai trees, fishing, and the occasional duel to the death.

There’s Amanda, ancient vampire and sophisticate who knows all about the Council’s founding because she was there when it happened.

And then there’s Spot. He’s cute, cuddly, and friendly. He loves tug-of-war and fetch. He’s also a fire-breathing dragon who can devour an entire cow in about thirty seconds.

The Hungry Dragon Cookie Company is a collection of 14 short stories that take place before, during, and after the first three parts of The Unconventional Heroes Series. Each story hopes to answer important questions like: How does a company involving cookies and dragons even work? How did a trans-dimensional, protoplasmic horror and a Grand Necromancer become friends, and how did that horror develop an addiction to cake? How does an ancient vampire acquire the comely, young virgins she needs to maintain proper vampiric health without looking like a total weirdo?

Answers to all of these questions and more will be revealed. With unconventional heroes like Timmy and the gang around, life is never boring.

A must read...

...if you enjoy the main storyline series as this short tale format really fills some plot/lore holes and gives you a better sense of some of the ensemble characters. I started liking these sort of books while reading the Four Horsemen Universe books.
Randomly found this series and so glad I did...not as crazy funny as Space Team, but pretty close.

Love it! The absolute best!

I absolutely love this story even better than the first 3! All the characters get time for their own stories even the ninja rats. We learn how Timmy and Sam became friends over cake. We see a different side of Avraniel that makes you go awww. Gerald goes on a holiday to see his family and still ends up in trouble. As always, he can be resourceful even when the others are not there. The Old Man’s story is of finding inner peace with his bonsai plants. We see how James, Vicky and Timmy worked together at the academy. The wonderful Spot makes friends over cookies and make Timmy money. A necromancer threaten Katie and Timmy takes things in hand. Everyone takes time at the beach and build sandcastles and it becomes a competition. Timmy is trying to get Katie to chill just a little. The author's ability to craft very individual characters is illustrated in this book. All in the day and life of our unconventional heroes.

An Absolute Blast!

An Absolute Blast! This is a short story collection of stories about the characters currently calling Black Tower Castle home. I think all of the characters were included in various stories, and the stories occurred at different times. Some of them happened before book 1, some in-between books 1 and 3, and a few after book 3. The author started each tale with a blurb to give you and idea on the chronological placement of the tale. If you have enjoyed the books in the mainline story, you will enjoy these short stories. It was absolutely worth the read.

great collection of short stories

every story has a reason to be there and all of them fleshes out one or more of the characters further.
it's a must have for fans of the series.

Mr. Bertman keeps up the high quality performance, not much else to say :)

Do not skip this one

I have enjoyed the entire series, but this one deserves full review because I usually find between stories blah. I love the teases of background on the characters, both main and side. Hope there is another!

Binge

I have not binge listened to a book series this hard since I was 10 and listening to Harry Potter. I adore this series on a level which I did not know was possible anymore.

Better and better.

If you have come this far, come farther. The laughter continues. Timmy and company are back for another delightfully wicked audiobook. The first story is from Spot’s point of view. Soooooo if you’re listening to the series this should be enough to catch your attention.

Warning

Currently on a diet. Now I really want cookies. Totally worth it, but don’t listen to the cookie part on an empty stomach. You’ve been warned!

A great range of short stories

Each story takes us on a trip with the characters and reveals more about them; adding depth and charm.
The performance is, as to expected from this narrator, absolutely excellent and really brings magic to the stories.
The stories are full of humour and charm which can offset the sadness and harm that exists for some of the characters. Each story is a great accessory to the main body of novels.
