Legends & Lattes is a cosy read that blends contemporary fiction with a fantasy setting featuring Orcs, Dwarves, Humans and other races. It offers a refreshing break from the political intrigue and violence often found in high fantasy novels, focusing instead on the story of Viv, an Orc Barbarian who having grown tired of adventuring, decides to open a coffee shop. Giving up her reliance on her sword to solve delicate problems, she now requires to find alternative ways to deal with obstacles that come her way. If you enjoy fantasy but prefer a gentler read, Legends & Lattes may be the perfect book for you.

While it may be a gentle, at its core the book delves into the difficulties of letting go of old habits and embracing new ones. Additionally, it explores the complexities of relationships and the friendships & “found” family made along the way.

While ending predictably with a happy outcome, you’re sure to enjoy a well rounded story. The prequel Bookshops & Bonedust is out later this year!

“So. I might not deserve you. And you might forgive too much. But I’m damned glad to have you.”
Travis Baldree – Legends & Lattes

About the Book

After decades of adventuring, Viv the orc barbarian is finally hanging up her sword for good. Now she sets her sights on a new dream – for she plans to open the first coffee shop in the city of Thune. Even though no one there knows what coffee actually is.

If Viv wants to put the past behind her, she can’t go it alone. And help might arrive from unexpected quarters. Yet old rivals and new stand in the way of success. And Thune’s shady underbelly could make it all too easy for Viv to take up the blade once more.

But the true reward of the uncharted path is the travellers you meet along the way. Whether bound by ancient magic, delicious pastries or a freshly brewed cup, they may become something deeper than Viv ever could have imagined.
