Oothar the Blue by Brandon Reese

Oothar is depressed.  He doesn't want to do any of his regular duties.  Slaying dragons and all the other barbarian activities that he normally does just don't have any charm for him anymore.  What's he to do?

Lion Forge and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published May 15th.

As he goes out and walks around he just gets more depressed and angry.  He finally has a fit and starts acting out.  He's cutting things, destroying stone and more.  When a Minotaur shows up he intends to kill him.  But the Minotaur tells him thanks.  He stops and wonders why.  It seems that he took care of a lot of the Minotaur's landscaping needs and he gets paid for it.  The Minotaur says he'll recommend him to his friends.  And, just like that, he has a new career.  There are a couple more surprises in the story but I'll let you find them yourself.  I enjoyed this one!
