If you have enjoyed ANY fantasy book, from Lord of the Rings to Harry Potter, and you have a wicked sense of humour, then this is the book for you...

What do you do when all of your family and friends have been butchered by a tribe of brutal, bloodthirsty warriors? Why, swear vengeance, of course! But carrying out your vow won't be easy when you're a skinny, eight-stone teenager who gets a nose-bleed cracking open an egg. And so young Ronan decides that he'd better learn to fight...
Set in Midworld, a realm of magic where large, muscle-bound men do unspeakable things to each other with nasty great swords, Ronan the Barbarian deals with real, everyday problems that are usually avoided in other fantasy worlds...
Problems such as how to fight someone when the cheap sword you bought at Honest Elric's Used Sword Emporium keeps coming off the handle. Or how to cast a spell when you're crippled by a hangover after drinking twelve pints of Gobbo's Pearly Light in the Dragon's Gizzard tavern. Or what to do when you're a God, but you happen to be the God of Atheists, you haven't received a prayer in five hundred years, and you're bored out of your mind.

Ronan the Barbarian is the first book in the Ronan trilogy.

"This is James Bibby's first novel, and what a cracker it is. Filled with first class gags that fly at you at a terrific rate and a plot that moves like a really fast-moving thing..." -Tales From the Broken Drum magazine
