'Tolkien meets Spinal Tap!' The third stand-alone volume in The Banned Underground fantasy collection finds our friends – the dwarf rhythm-and-blues band known as The Banned Underground – in trouble again. For once, they can claim that it wasn’t their fault. After all, they didn’t suggest Santa’s Little Helpers should borrow The Sleigh to get to their gig whilst Santa is on his summer cruise, did they? And they certainly didn’t crash The Sleigh into a mountain in Wales on the way, did they?
But they can’t let their friends down, so the Banned are on hand to help get The Sleigh repaired—by the only remaining mechanic who has a workshop manual. After all, Vampires don’t throw things like that away.
However, The Sleigh has triggered computer alerts around the world, and one such alert was on the Dark Lord’s computer. As his Mercedes has seen better days, the Dark Lord sends out his minions with orders to recover The Sleigh to be his new personal transport.
Warlocks, Druids, Vampires and Witches (and the occasional accidental frog) combine in a laugh-a-minute roller coaster as the Banned struggle to save their friends from the wrath of Santa.
This is a great entry to a fantastically funny collection described as 'Lord of The Rings as written by a stand up comedian to a Led Zeppelin soundtrack'
