Critical Failures (Caverns and Creatures #1)
by Robert Bevan
OK where to start? Tim is a normal 20 something nerd That likes to play Caverns & Creatures (generic Dungeons & Dragons) with his friends Dave and Cooper while getting drunk. They play in Tim’s family restaurant the Chicken Hut after hours. Julian is Dave’s friend from work and playing C&C for the first time. They also have a new Cavern master they found on Craig’s list. When the CM shows up wearing a cape I was already falling in love with this book.
After only playing for a few minutes they come to a town and Cooper says he wants to kill the guard for not letting him in because he is a Half Orc barbarian he rolls and chops the guys head off then puts it in his bag. Soon Cooper goes a bit too far in making fun of the CM and he uses his magic dice to actually send them in to the game as their characters and Cooper is carrying a bag with a head in it as the rest of the city guards chase them.
Tim is the Halfling Rogue. Dave is the Dwarf Priest. Julian is a Half Elf Magic User. Poor Cooper is a Half Orc Barbarian with a charisma score of 2 so he always has snot running down his face and is constantly shiting himself. They are a unlikely group to adventure together but they will have to if they ever want to get home.
This is filled with juvenile humor of the most profane sort. In other words I loved it. I listened to the audio book narrated by Jonathan Sleep. He did a excellent job at giving each character their own voice and adding much to the experience. I rate it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Critical Failures II
Book 2 was ok but I felt it was just kinda the same as book one not moving anywhere new and was worried about book 3. I shouldn’t have worried this one gets 3 out 5 stars.
Critical Failures III: A Storm of S-Words (Caverns and Creatures #3)

I love this title! By far my favorite book in the series. I won’t go in to the plot or anything. I will say that if you listen to the Audio Book like I did stay at home. I looked like a idiot many times while listing to this one from laughing so hard or just walking around with a huge grin on my face and quietly chuckling to myself. I don’t know which one of those made me look more insane. But oh well, that’s normal at Wal-Mart right? I give this one 5 out of 5 stars
