Viv's career with the renowned mercenary company Rackam's Ravens isn't going as planned. Wounded during the hunt for a powerful necromancer, she's packed off against her will to recuperate in the sleepy beach town of Murk - so far from the action that she worries she'll never be able to return to it. What's a thwarted soldier of fortune to do? Spending her hours at a struggling bookshop in the company of its foul-mouthed proprietor is the last thing Viv would have predicted. Even though it may be exactly what she needs. Still, adventure isn't far away. A suspicious traveller in grey, a gnome with a chip on her shoulder, a summer fling and an improbable number of skeletons prove Murk to be more eventful than Viv could have ever expected. Sometimes, right things happen at the wrong time. Sometimes, what we need isn't what we seek. And sometimes, we find ourselves in the stories we experience together.… (more)

Bookshops & Bonedust by Travis Baldree. A prequel to Legends & Lattes, this story follows the life of Viv at the beginning of her sword slinging days. After making some rash decisions leads to her being left behind by her company to recuperate in a small and sleepy town, Viv meets new characters and begins to form attachments with the locals. This creates an internal war when she knows she'll be leaving them behind once her company returns. As with Legends & Lattes, this book is best described as cozy and heart warming. There is a slow burning mystery to solve with stakes even higher than before. Highly recommend for any fantasy lover who wants a quick and light-hearted read. 5/5 stars. ( )

Saw Legends & Lattes in the bookstore a few months back and knew I'd want to try it one day. Decided to get it yesterday, but, hmmm, not available now. But here's the prequel. Bought and started to read. A day-and-a-half to finish and didn't read anything else (odd for me). A light fun read with good emotional underpinning. Highly recommend for anyone who likes light fantasy.—Paul ( )

This is a jump back in Viv's past to when she was still part of a team in adventuring. But she's been injured and is forced into peaceful recovery. She makes friends, foils a plot, and ends up helping her team take down their target. I enjoyed getting a peak at Viv's past, but the first book was more fun for me. ( )
