The Reluctant Barbarian by John Haas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This self-aware dungeon master romp is skirting the edge of the fun LitRPG trends going around. Arthur gets a belated wish from his childhood and gets plopped in the center of a Grand Adventure as a normal regenerative barbarian with the undead, an oh-so-predictable Paladin, and enough funny adventures to satisfy any D&D head. Add a Lich for good measure, and this is one hell of a Dark Horse story.
But more than that, it's light and just plain fun. Even the Paladin.
I hate Paladins. So stuffy. :)
Just add all the misunderstood social bits of our world and mix them into the rich fantasy world to give us all the sour chuckles we'd ever desire. :)
