Legends and Lattes Book Review: A Delightful Fantasy Slice of Life with a Dollop of Romance

I just finished reading Legends and Lattes by Travis Baldry, and it was a delightful experience. This book, a self-proclaimed “hot cup of fantasy slice of life with a dollop of romantic froth,” definitely lived up to its promises. It offered a unique reading experience that I had never encountered before.

While the story wasn’t completely free of conflict and moments of strife, it primarily focused on providing a stress-free and relaxing read. It revolved around an orc who, rather than embarking on adventures and quests, simply wants to serve delicious coffee. No longer interested in vanquishing enemies, this character becomes a barista and serves up hot shots of espresso.

The heartwarming aspect of the story lies in the loving community that springs up around this new coffee shop, called Legends and Lattes. It’s a place where people gather to enjoy great coffee and create connections.

If you’re looking for a refreshing and unique reading experience, I highly recommend checking out Legends and Lattes by Travis Baldry!
