Written in the hilarious tradition of the bestselling Terry Pratchett and Tom Holt. In this episode our eponymous hero, having been rescued from the voluptuous clutches of the sorceress Shikara, must begin his attack on the `Board' of the Orcbane Sword Corporation.

Ronan is currently under option with an animation company planning to turn him into fantasy's answer to Red Dwarf.
