    A Lee Martinez is hit and miss for me two of his books are ridiculously fun Gil s All Fright Diner, Emperor Mollusk , a couple absolutely aren t, and a few are enjoyable but one time reads This, while decently done, I suppose, didn t work for me It should have, as a road trip centered around Heroic Quest, and containing Martinez oddball humor, but there was a strong New Young Adult theme that just didn t work for me.Helen is an Enchanted American, and one of the only fully minotaur females in decades, so she tends to stand out in a crowd It s the summer after high school and she s working at a burger joint One night her boss asks her to stay late As she s foiling his nefarious plans, her perfect co worker, Troy, accidentally interrupts, and they are both forced into a quest A government agent shows up to help them along and they head off Meanwhile, an orc motorcycle gang only on weekends is tasked by their god to kill the questers Given that their lead, Nigel, is normally an accountant, he s fairly uncomfortable with this task.So that s the premise, which could have been engaging enough, but it didn t gel as well as it could have Questing follows the traditional oracle obstacle format, but frankly, there s far too much romantic angst and not enough questing Probably, the angst isn t particularly well done To me, it seemed fairly single note Helen knows she s a...

    Totally enjoyable humor, AGAIN, from A Lee Martinez Great tongue in cheek premises, such as the local minotaur girl working in a BURGER JOINT getting almost sacrificed by the Hamburger God Chernobog by her manager, leads directly to a QUEST Bring along Helen s cute co worker Troy, get Quest licenses from the local board, tell their parents they ll be going on a roadtrip, and off we go, running Martinez always rather rocks It s not always the premises that are best, but the way the author always makes characters who are so damn well rounded Courageous and insecure, shy and deadly The meet cute is so damn cute The magical artifacts are fun But y...

    This was really good I love those books that I pick on a whim just bc not many read them, if they are bad then it s expected and if they are good they are really good.An Asian MC who probably would hate that I said that bc he s annoyed that ...

    I wish i could just sit down with A Lee Martinez over a meal, and a road trip, and just pick his brains Probably one of my favorite authors Every book of his is chock full of great, zany characters, wild and bizarre situations, and just crammed with wit, charm, heroism, puns, and A Locus critic wrote about one of his books, and I agree and think it pertains to all of his oeuvre Divine Misfortune reads like a mash up of Neil Gaiman, Monty Python, and a sugar bombed nine year o...

    What the hell was that asked Troy A god of yore she replied But I think it s dead now Helen, one of a pseudo race of beings known as Enchanted Americans, is eighteen years old A good student, a Marvel Comics fangirl, a non preachy vegetarian and high school graduate well on her way to a good college, Helen is also a Minotaur.She d always thought the tail was kind of cute.Minotaurism is nothing than a family trait to Helen, passed down by some ancient curse laid on an ancestor Her mother has cloven hooves, her brothers fur and a tail Helen has it worse than them, sure, what with the horns and all, but to Helen, she s just Helen But this epic isn t about Helen and her horns You can help me just the same A couple of strong young mortal specimens The god focused his gaze on them, and they were immobilized by his supernatural power You ll do Helen and her coworker at Magic Burger, Troy, have been inadvertently Helen on purpose, actullay sacrificed to the Lost God by their elf boss, Mr Whiteleaf.The Lost God, banished by his pantheon and worshiped possibly only by Mr Whiteleaf, takes them on as his servants in the series of tasks that will being him back to his full power so he can take his throne back Your quest is this You must gather the relics and bring them to the place of power at the appointed time What kind of relics asked Troy I m not sure, he replied How many asked Helen Somewhere between four and six, I think Possibly seven No than eight, I feel confident in saying ...

    Helen and Troy are just your ordinary, average young Americans who work together at minimum wage jobs in a fast food restaurant Well, except for the small detail that Helen is a minotaur and the two have been given an epic quest by a hamburger god And while details of the quest aren t exactly forthcoming, the duo still sets out on a epic road trip quest in A Lee Martinez s comedic fantasy novel Helen and Troy s Epic Road Quest.Along the way, they ll meet a cyclops who will only do battle with people who have purchased a license enacted to help keep his small town s struggling government afloat , visit a dragon preserve and face pursuit by a group of supernatural bikers who may or may not have our heroes best interests at heart And that doesn t even take into account the quasi governmental agency assigned to help our heroes.If it all sounds a bit absurd and like something out of a Terry Pratchett novel, you re not wrong Unlike a lot of authors who try and fail to channel the humor of Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett, Martinez writes a humorous story, poking fun at the pratfalls of epic fantasy and delivering a handful of genuine laugh out loud moments along the way This is not a book to be read in company that will look at you oddly if you chuckle, snort or laugh out loud at a certain line, image or clever tu...

    Ten Second Synopsis After narrowly avoiding being sacrificed to a god in the form of a mound of minced meat, Helen and Troy are coerced into undertaking a quest for it That s when things start to get a little weird.I loved this book Since I first saw it, I had it on my radar as a possible perfect match for my tastes I had tried another of Martinez s novels though, and it didn t do much for me, so there was a bit of niggling doubt but I m pleased to say that this one lived up exactly to my expectations, without exceeding them That probably sounds like a bad thing, but it s not I expected a fun, cheeky read that was a bit of a no brainer and that s what I got and I am very grateful for it.The plot is full of slightly predictable but nevertheless chuckle worthy takes on the whole questing genre of book game movie and anyone who enjoys this genre should get a kick out of this tribute I loved the inclusion of a female character with body issues that have nothing to do with being thin, and a male character who is so perfect he finds his per...

    Helen is a normal teenage girl She s smart She s funny She s got some mild body image issues And she s a Minotaur or Enchanted American, in the parlance of their times Troy s your average overachieving, handsome, athletic, likeable Asian American guy When their boss at their after school job tries to sacrifice Helen, Helen Troy are thrust together on a quest by the Lost God They are aided by the shadowy agents of the Questing Bureau, as well as an assortment of oddball characters they meet along the way.The plot thickens when the Wild Hunt motorcycle gang is compelled to stop them Don t hold the fact that they are Orcs against them Most of the bikers are office workers during the week, and only get out riding on the weekends Nevertheless, they have their heritage to live up to, and will stop at almost nothing to stop Helen Troy s success.Helen Troy s Epic Road Quest is an absolute joy Martinez manages to balance character and plot exceeding...

    A fun light hearted book, a palate cleanser after the tragic Anna Karenina Helen and Troy s Epic Road Quest is a tongue in cheek adventure story, set on an alternate Earth where mythology is real and magic and magical creatures are commonplace The story follows high school students on a quest that was cursed upon them by a god who embodied himself in a ton of raw beef at a fast food burger joint They reluctantly head off to recover various magic relics that may or may not bring about the end of the world But they ll die if they don t Oh, and one of the high school kids happens to be a Minotaur To be honest, I was never clear whether she had a full on bullhead or a human face I felt the author kind of side stepped that issue when he set up the romance between the main characters Call it family friendly bestiality.The humor r...
