Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As the world gets darker and crazier, the need for truly wholesome, heartwarming, and re-invigorating literature becomes all the more apparent.
And this one hits all the right spots.
Sure, it's a novel about re-invention, starting over, but it's really about gathering like-minded people to you, surrounding yourself with true friends.
The fantasy part is not the fantasy races, the magical stones, fires, or blades. It's the wish-fulfillment of finally belonging.
It's quite lovely. I could easily read this forever.
Plus, it's really just a novel of starting a coffee shop. Of a Field of Dreams coffee shop. Build it and they will come. It's a great dream. Orcs and succubi are merely a frosting on the roll.
