But life at Castle Bombast isn’t quite what Cedric was expecting – in fact, it’s a total Knightmare! In the first book in the Knightmare series, Life Stinks, Roland the Rotten has challenged Percy the Proud to a duel. But the famous knight refuses to take part because he's lost his lucky underpants. It turns out that Percy is lying to avoid the fight. With his new master's reputation at stake, Cedric finds himself stepping up to the challenge...
