Review: Legends and Lattes by Travis Baldree

Title: Legends and Lattes

Author: Travis Baldree

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.

‘A hot cup of fantasy slice-of-life with a dollop of romantic froth.’

This was so true, it was a wonderful story!

Viv, a warrior ogre leaves her erm….present employment and goes to Thune where she wants to build her own coffee shop. And this is in a time when hardly no one has heard of coffee!!! She finds a dilapidated building, a few friends and builds her business. But it’s not without troubles and drama!

Viv loves coffee, she is my spirit animal! And the baked goods! Don’t read this whilst your hungry or you’ll eat everything you have in the house! The descriptions made my mouth water!

It had such a cozy, homey, old world feel to this book, the village had a lamplighter! Sort of gave me under the Whispering Door vibes but different if that makes any sense! As the characters all discovered different coffee’s and cakes that are new to them but known to us, it made me so happy!

So nothing to do with the story and not a complaint but I got an earc and all the words with ‘fi’ or ‘fl’  together had been wiped from the book, so fish became sh, fist became st etc! Honestly it was like a game!!! But my fave was obviously meant to say floral perfume but was printed as oral perfume!!! Erm, smells good?!!!!!

Anyway, read this, you won’t regret it!!!
