Kill the Farm Boy by Delilah S. Dawson and Kevin HearneIn episode 368 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio welcome back New York Times Best Selling author Delilah S. Dawson! Delilah’s new book – co-authored with fellow NYT Best Selling Author Kevin Hearne – is called KILL THE FARM BOY and drops on July 17th, 2018 from Del Rey.

About KILL THE FARM BOY: Once upon a time, in a faraway kingdom, a hero, the Chosen One, was born . . . and so begins every fairy tale ever told.

This is not that fairy tale.

There is a Chosen One, but he is unlike any One who has ever been Chosened.

And there is a faraway kingdom, but you have never been to a magical world quite like the land of Pell.

There, a plucky farm boy will find more than he’s bargained for on his quest to awaken the sleeping princess in her cursed tower. First there’s the Dark Lord, who wishes for the boy’s untimely death . . . and also very fine cheese. Then there’s a bard without a song in her heart but with a very adorable and fuzzy tail, an assassin who fears not the night but is terrified of chickens, and a mighty fighter more frightened of her sword than of her chain-mail bikini. This journey will lead to sinister umlauts, a trash-talking goat, the Dread Necromancer Steve, and a strange and wondrous journey to the most peculiar “happily ever after” that ever once-upon-a-timed.

About Delilah S. Dawson: Delilah S. Dawson is the author of the New York Times bestseller Star Wars: Phasma, the Blud series, the Hit series, Servants of the Storm, and the Shadow series, written as Lila Bowen and beginning with Wake of Vultures.
