Thank you Tor UK & Netgalley for my eArc copy, which I received in exchange for an honest review.
What can I say about Legends & Lattes that hasn’t been said already? I devoured this endearing, cosy fantasy novel in a day — and thank the Tor gods for including a recipe for Thimblets in this new edition because by the end I was craving baked goods.
Viv has left her old life of adventuring and bounty hunting behind to chase her new dream of opening a coffee shop. (Do you remember that musical number from Disney’s Tangled with all the ruffians in the tavern? It’s very much that vibe).
Cal — the blunt & generous hob labourer & craftsman
Tandri — the compassionate & driven succubus barista
Thimble — the adorable & talented ratkin baker
… and look at that. That’s a found family if I’ve ever seen one.
If I had to be critical, I’d say that I wish the writing was slightly stronger. There are several points where the writer could have lingered more on the descriptions. However, this is a retrospective observation and did not distract from my enjoyment while reading.
This was such a lovely read, and I can’t wait to read whatever Baldree writes next.
