Legends and Lattes
Synopsis: High Fantasy with a double-shot of self-reinvention
Worn out after decades of packing steel and raising hell, Viv the orc barbarian cashes out of the warrior’s life with one final score. A forgotten legend, a fabled artifact, and an unreasonable amount of hope lead her to the streets of Thune, where she plans to open the first coffee shop the city has ever seen.
However, her dreams of a fresh start pulling shots instead of swinging swords are hardly a sure bet. Old frenemies and Thune’s shady underbelly may just upset her plans. To finally build something that will last, Viv will need some new partners and a different kind of resolve.
A hot cup of fantasy slice-of-life with a dollop of romantic froth.

My Review: Y’all Legends and Lattes was so fucking good! It’s the found family of my dreams.
While this has some action and some romance, it’s more of a quiet story about finding your place in the world and leaving your troubled past behind you. And it’s fun. It was just F-U-N.
I cannot recommend the audiobook enough! It is narrated by the author and you can tell he has audiobook experience because it was fantastic.
This was a fantasy world that had magic and mayhem a plenty mixed with coffee and cinnamon rolls and dire cats and it made me cry over a sword. I. Cried. Over. A. Sword.
Ugh It was just so good.
This book promised to deliver High Fantasy and Low Stakes and I think it did exactly that! The world was super fun and I enjoyed being in it but there were not any real surprises or anything that just threw me for a loop. And yet still, I loved every minute of it!
