Genuine fun

A great mix of characters, and consistently engaging and funny stories. It’s a fantasy version of Mission to Zyxx.

Fun, funny, and great fantasy

It's hard to find good fantasy in the audio fiction realm, where most stories tend to be horror or sci-fi. Harder still to find comedy - and Alba Salix does both, and extremely well. Alba is an unconventional main character and it's SO GREAT to see an older, female character get top billing. The ragtag group of misfits that begin to cluster around her is a delight, and especially Magnus's character development over the two seasons has been a real treat to listen to. I can't wait for more.

Delightful & snarky fantasy!

A delightful fantasy romp with a snarky witch, ditzy fairy and an unwilling mess of an apprentice. The first season’s shenanigans are what first got me into audio drama, and the second season brings more sass and delightful queer slice of life moments as the cast expands.
