Review

"Legendarium is a madcap romp through some of literature's greatest works, at times oddly genius, mixed with a hilarious dose of buddy comedy barbs and witty retorts. You'll have a lot of fun riding along with Bombo and Alistair Foley during their adventures, but where Bunker and Summers really excel is the underlying commentary regarding the overwhelming power of literature to shape history." ~ USA TODAY Bestselling Author Ernie Lindsey

From the Author

LEGENDARIUM is the second Bombo Dawson adventure - after Hugh Howey Must Die! but the books can be read in any order.  LEGENDARIUM is also the first in a series of Bombo Dawson/Alistair Foley Legendarium adventures by Michael Bunker and Kevin G. Summers.

While much has been made about this being the second Bombo Dawson book, readers should not be put off thinking that they must read Hugh Howey Must Die before diving in to Legendarium. Bombo is wisely given a 'refresher' introduction to bring new readers into the fold. Bombo, and his nemesis Alistair Foley, are chosen to defend the Legendarium, a fantastic library that contains a portal into every world ever created by a book. Dark forces wish to destroy the Legendarium, and with it, the shared knowledge and experience that comes from reading - plunging the world into a new dark ages.

Using the Legendarium, Bombo and Alistair must travel through pivotal works of literature (both real and imagined) to learn how to defeat the forces of darkness threatening the great books. Along the way, they bicker their way through discussing books, the publishing industry, the impact of literature on our shared culture and whether the great works of the past could survive if published today. Legendarium is a quick read, funny (very funny), smart, full of great references (both subtle and gross) and has great points to make about big ideas, writing, reading and enjoying books.

While I've read many Michael Bunker books, this is my first exposure to Kevin G. Summers. It won't be my last. This collaboration should inspire many fans for both authors. Highly recommended!

Bombo is back in this really interesting collaboration from Michael Bunker and Kevin Summers. The story starts where Hugh Howey Must Die ends, to introduce the main character Bombo Dawson. Although the book had a straightforward theme, I felt like I was reading a combination of Stephen King's Langoliers and Michael Ende's Neverending Story (meaning the story had adventure, the unknown, and a little bit of scare added to the mix). This book has it all: adventure, laughs, plot twists, and mentions of well known authors and their books. This was a fun book to read!

Ever since I read Michael Bunker's "Hugh Howey Must Die", I've been itching for more Bombo Dawson. This story doesn't disappoint in the slightest. Adding Alistair Foley to the mix is quite simply brilliant. The duo fit well together because they truly dislike one another, but find themselves working side-by-side to fix the Legendarium (a library unlike any other) before worlds collide and fall apart. However, they must first learn to work together and that's a tall order. Mainly, because Alistair thinks Bombo is a piss-poor writer and doesn't hesitate to leave a scathing review of Bombo's seminal work right before they're thrown together to save every world ever created through the written word, and in turn, our own.

You'll find a little bit of everything in Legendarium. For instance, if you enjoy fantastic writing, laughing out loud while you read and such things as libraries, books, adventures, bungling heroes who finally get it right after a whole lot of wrong, snappy dialogue, and characters whose flaws are all too believable and thus, endearing, this book is for you!

I have no idea where this book came from, and I guess it's only appropriate that I found it only because it was misshelved, (that is, miscategorized), near something I was looking for. You probably don't know how you ended up here, either, but congratulations on a job well done.

I downloaded this kindleunlimited freebie because it was a freebie and because it had a pretty professional looking cover. I thought it might have a laugh or two and I was curious. Well, this time curiosity has rewarded the cat handsomely.

This is a sly, deeply well-informed and broadly aware send up of all things literary - of authors, writing, publishing, self-publishing, criticism, blogging, teaching, marketing and everything else at all related to books, including movable type and papyrus.

There is slapstick and snappy repartee, punning and wordplay, silliness and manic fantasy/action. But most of all there are razor sharp little bits, sometimes only phrases and throwaway lines, that are brutally insightful and funny. I would not have thought that it would be possible to sustain a tone that is both delicate and light-hearted on one hand and yet cutting and seriously critical on the other, but our authors accomplish that very end.
So, if you appreciate barbed humor or if you like literary scavenger hunts or if you like deadpan humor and dry wit, or if you just like witty protagonists whinging about things that may or may not matter, then have I got a book for you. (Oh, and by that last bit I mean this book, here.)

Again, good job stumbling across this. (Please note that I found this book as a freebie. I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)

Congratulations, Michael and Kevin; yours was a match made in heaven, as opposed to Bombo and Alistair, their match must've been made in hell (I mean that in only the nicest way). Legendarium is such a fun read ... and I did catch that reference to Star Trek! Keep Bombo and Alistair stories coming ... we could all use more laughter in our lives.
