Publisher's Summary

Skip class. Kick ass. Save the frigging world.

During Dan Marshall’s second year of college, the real world melded with a home-brew Towers & Trolls adventure. Dan got barbaric and battled giant spiders, an apocalyptic death cult, and an undead necromancer bent on flooding the universe with eternal darkness. Luckily, Dan has two amazing women at his side: Holly, a grey elf druid from a powerful family; and Nadia, a streetwise shifter with heavy connections in the local thieves’ guild.

When Dan receives a cry for help from a long-lost friend, he sets out to investigate an eerie crevasse in the forest. After a clash with slavers delays his plans, Dan vows to defend a village of helpless elves. 

But how can he protect the elves and save his friend when he’s up against an army of vengeful slavers, mysterious creatures from another dimension, and a hot-blooded hobgoblin warrior woman determined to either kill or marry him?

Warning: Dan the Adventurer is an over-the-top adventure novel intended for listeners 18 and older. It includes explicit sex, graphic violence, a harem of gorgeous ass-kicking girls, a murderous brother-in-law, monster girls, and bloodthirsty predators from another plane of existence. It does not fade to black.

Great adult fun and listening!

This book, like its predecessor, was an awesome listen and very nicely written! I have come to believe Hondo Jinx to be a pen name for another accomplished author. I loved every moment of this reading and yes, the main character is a total airhead sometimes but he comes around in time – a barbarian what can you really expect eh? LOL - The series continues to provide great, adult listening and fun!

Recommended: To fully enjoy this book/s you should have some table-top, dice-rolling experience or knowledge of it. Me, I am a nerd and a geek! I loved building worlds and playing table-top D&D with my friends as I grew up, both as a DM and player. So, these books really resonate with me and I love every moment of it. I remember hours of roleplay where we all would end up laughing our collective butts off at moments where someone from our party would do something like what Dan does throughout these books. Thank you to Hondo for returning me to those memories!

That is only a recommendation and not a requirement. So grab these books and listen or read them! They will make you laugh and ignite your inner passions all at the same time! Hats off to you Hondo, I can’t wait to listen to the next one! Keep writing Hondo. Dan rocks and his ladies are super hot!

It's Adventure TIme, Barbarian style!

Aw geez, another great book to review this week. Dan the Adventurer is pure cheesy fun. It’s kind of like Conan mixed with a Saturday morning adult cartoon. Silly, fun, and sexy but not made for kids. This is just a brilliant series from concept to completion on the page, or in this case, my ears.
This time around we leave the campus to go and visit Dan’s new In-laws. Now, speaking as a married man there are few words that will send a shiver down your spine faster than the I hyphen L word. So, I can understand when he would rather face down the Mafioso type dude that is looking for him than go on a vacation in the forest to meet his new mom and pops.

There is a lot that happens in this book. Dan gets to meet his D-bag dipped in an A-hole brother in law, gets the cold shoulder from his new mama, and a super stink eye from his pappy in law. Standard marriage stuff, but soon the fun all comes to an end when some extra dimensional monsters start ripping up the forest, and a band of raiders decides to wipe out an entire race of elves. A race that Dan, ever the barbarian, wants as little to do with as possible, cause he has crap to do elsewhere, and these folks are just slowing down his quest. Hell, the sidequest becomes the main quest, and soon he is helping the fire elves rebuild, regroup, and regrow as a race.

As I will say in another segment later, the sex scenes are just as engrossing as the battles. There is always a purpose behind each one, and poor Dan has the onerous burden of having to please his ladies, while fighting of the advances of a horny red-faced hobgoblin, and defending the fire elves keep. One does wonder when he finds time to sleep. One thing that kind of surprised me was just how little we get to see Dan level, he goes through hell, but we only get to see him level once. I’d have thought that he had gained at least three levels just dealing with the extradimensionals.

Now, I will say that this is Andrea’s show. Man she is in complete command here and there is no question of her masculinity as she helms her Dan puppet through the storyline. I just talked about how amazing she was in KT Hana’s Fragments, but I have to say this is really some of her best work. She places soooo much emotion into one little word, please, that it really hit me deep in my feels. There is a scene where the hobgobolin warrior maiden is literally begging Dan to have his way with her, and she just says one word. One word. Please. Just that please made me want to say Dammit Dan, if you can’t pony up I’ll do it. That girl needs some lovin. Truthfully, I am not into red-faced muscular green gals. Definitely not my type, but Andrea filled that one little word with so much emotion that it moved me, mentally and emotionally. That is narration power. That is a mastery that few ever achieve. I say it repeatedly, Andrea puts so much emotion into her characters that they become real. I have no doubt one day she’s going to go overboard and she’s gonna end up having a Purple Rose of Cairo situation on her hands. It’s a movie, go watch it, it ain’t half bad.

So, the book is amazing good fun. I love the characters and the adventures, and Dan just shows you what a modern barbarian is like. I am loving this series. It is solid as granite. Final Score 8.45 stars.

So good!!!

I really love this series. Andrea Parsneau did a superb job of bringing this book to life. I love her voices, espcially for the monstrous characters. So great! I love how the author created the world and continues to develop. All in all, this is a great series and I am rediculously hooked and looking forward to the next book!

Another excellent adventure!

I found this book very engaging and the character development interesting. Andreas narration is excellent as always and I can only wonder where Dan and his wives will go from here! So I will be waiting for the next book.

you really feel that 9 int and 8 wis

our Meathead hero really it's a whole new level of stupidity in this one holy and Nadia are still amazing we get an expansion of the Harem and mostly my issue is that Meathead the Barbarian doesn't behave like a hero he behaves like a petulant spoiled brat the entire time and it's hard to like someone like that. yes the world does punish him for his bad behavior and reward him whenever he does good but the entire time his attitude he's a complete turn off

End of this story line for me

The hero is a not likable or even admirable...He's just plain stupid. He gets his butt kicked so bad in practice with a wooden sword after being an arrogant jerk. Also its not believable any of his harem would find him attract much less worth sharing. Got thru the first book ok but its the end of the story line for me. I couldn't even finish it. I prefer my heroes to actually be heroic but that is just me you might like it if your into hero humiliation. ;)

It was ok not bad but not special either

Fantastic performance by Andrea Parsneau didn’t expect anything less from her, but the story was ok, nice pace, decent setups but just one complaint, the MC wines too much and annoyed me to the point where I skipped almost entire scenes or conversation because I couldn’t stand his wining
