Legends & Lattes

We rated this book:


If you’ve been on the fantasy side of BookTok at all this year, then you’ve definitely seen Legends and Lattes being touted as one of the best cozy fantasies of the year. There are usually a few questions that come up for potential readers though, and I’m here to answer them!

First of all, you don’t have to play Dungeons and Dragons or know anything about the game and general rules of the universe to enjoy this book, and even if you like traditional fantasies with epic storylines and maps… lots of maps… you’ll still be able to enjoy this adorable and exciting slice of life novel.

The story revolves around an orc barbarian named Viv who lays down her sword (or rather, hangs it on the wall) in order to open a coffee shop and start a new life away from the hardships and bloodshed of adventuring. When old “friends” threaten her chance at a fresh start, Viv has to rely on her new community, new friends (and maybe a new love interest), and a new definition of a warrior’s resolve to keep her dream afloat.
