All I wanted to do was live my life in peace. Maybe get a cat, expand my spice farm. Really anything that doesn’t involve going on a quest where an orc might rip my face off. But they say the Goddess has favorites. If so, I’m clearly not one of them.
After saving the demon Fallon in a wine-drunk stupor, all he wanted to do was kill an evil witch enslaving his people.
I mean, I get it, don’t get me wrong. But he’s dragging me along for the ride, and I’m kind of peeved about it. On the bright side, he keeps burning off his shirt.
This was a ‘TikTok made me buy it.’ I’d seen it recommended so many times that I finally gave in and bought/read it. And I’m glad I did. I really enjoyed it. It’s a fun read. Now, it’s silly-fun. There is nothing here to be taken seriously, including the plot and characters. Unbelievable conveniences pop up constantly to keep the story moving along. The characters aren’t deep or prone to phenomenal personal growth. The villain is a caricature and defeated with ease. The modern vernacular felt weird at times.
But, IMO none of that matters because it’s not why I read the book. I read the book to laugh and enjoy my time with it. And in that it was a success. I think I grinned the whole time I read it. I have no complaints on that front.
