The first in a wickedly funny new series about an aspiring pacifist in a brutal kingdom!

On Brutalia violence is a way of life. Ravenous ravens circle overhead, monstrous grot bears cause chaos and the streets are bulging with brawls. But Mort isn’t like the other islanders – he’s determined to live peacefully. His struggle is made even tougher when the cruel queen appoints Mort as Royal Executioner. No one has challenged the royals and lived to tell the tale. Can Mort keep his head and outwit the queen?

Perfect for fans of the HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON series, FROSTHEART and THE NOTHING TO SEE HERE HOTEL.

  1. Inge

    A laughter-inducing read!

    Brutalia is a brutal place rubbing off on its inhabitants, but there is one person who does not enjoy the brutality all the others seem to love: Mort is dubbed ’the Meek’ by his family. When Mort’s uncle the executioner dies he is given the most brutal task of all. His first execution is that of his best friend and he only has a week to figure out how to stop it, he is a pacifist after all…

    This book dealt with some great themes in a funny lighthearted way. I sped through the book, loved the illustrations and the funny narrative style. I can imagine it not being everyone’s cup of tea, but would definitely recommend giving this a try!

    Thanks Little Tiger and Netgalley for the e-ARC

    I so enjoyed Mort the Meek and the Ravens’ Revenge. The zany narratorial humour reminded me of Andy Stanton’s Mr Gum series, which was a big favourite in our house. I loved the fantasy setting, too – Brutalia is brilliantly awful – and Mort makes for a great relatable hero. Who can resist a pacifist executioner?! I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
