Adobe Kroger began her life as the protagonist of an independently produced and published novel by Dan Sacharow. Now you may enjoy the superlatively performed narration of the audio edition, available on audible!
Adobe Kroger has a secret.
She is a Paladin – a holy knight blessed with the power to wield the divine Light of love and creation. Or she was, anyhow. After being convicted of blasphemy, she’s been excommunicated from the holy order and her power was taken away. Or so her superiors thought. Unbeknownst to them, despite their efforts, the Light is still hers to command. She would be in terrible danger if they were to discover the truth, but she is determined to use her power to rectify a terrible mistake, whatever the personal cost.
When one night she encounters a mysterious evil creature the likes of which no Paladin or Wizard has ever seen, she becomes embroiled in a sinister conspiracy that holds the fate of the world in the balance. As if that weren’t enough, she also loses her phone.
This modern-day fantasy tale is told in Adobe’s own voice. Join the potty-mouthed Paladin as she confronts the terrors of an obnoxious speech impediment, an embarrassing viral video, a far more talented and handsome rival, a phantasmal dream-walking roommate, and a wizard armed with a cricket bat and a faulty memory. With all of that and being caught between her day job and former colleagues with murderous grudges, can she come to terms with her destiny in time to avert the destruction of the human race?
Adobe Kroger, Knight Errant is the first in a new series by Dan Sacharow, creator of the webcomic Molly Beans. Set in the recent past of 2013, this urban fantasy adventure story can best be described as John McClane meets Black Widow set in an episode of Jack Bauer’s 24, with a skilled, moderately-powered protagonist swept up in a nonstop barrage of calamity, with little to rely on but her fists and her wits.
If you are looking for a fun read, then you have found it. I loved the attitude of the characters. The author gives you a vivid world to explore. Overall great read.
The author took his true to life style of the Molly comics and brought it to a full story. This was a ton of fun, beginning to end! If you enjoy modern day fantasy, give it a try!
As my first audio book I was very pleasantly surprised. The story is well paced, the characters range from sympathetic to down right loathsome and I never felt like I wa being left behind by exposition. Themes and concepts were explained well enough without too much over explanation But the cherry on top is the voice work done by Addison Peacock. Soothing and her range is great. I honestly cannot wait for the next installment. A brilliant way to spend a boring commute to work and back each day .
Excellent new addition to the Urban Fantasy / Paranormal genre. The main character is believable to the point I swear I probably worked with her in the past. Additionally it has a workable magic system without bogging the reader down in mechanics or glossing over everything with a wave of the wand a miracles happen.
The voice of the narrator, Addison Peacock, worked great for all of the characters. I was impressed with her pronunciation of the German invocations.
I really enjoyed this book! It is the audible equivalent of a page-turner! The main character is very relatable and interesting, and the detailed descriptions help the characters and the scenes come to life. The story was very well crafted with many turns and surprises as the pieces of the story come together.
Great narration as well. Can’t wait for book 2!
