I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

Reluctant Swordsman

Cover of Reluctant Swordsman.

Mind candy, popcorn read. Felt like Royal Road quality despite being published in the 80s. Wallie is Mr Self Insert, teleported on death from a hospital to be a hero in a fantasy world, complete with religions, evil priests, very nearly very icky relationships, and most importantly, being the coolest dude.

Too straight and too boring for me. Not terrible, but I can read better books for escapism. Also the whole “Is this an imaginary world? Am I imagining slavery? That’s so fucked up โ€ฆ no wait, the world is real, I guess this is fine, I’ll treat her really well \o/” shtick was kinda, eh, ehhhhh.

This book is part of the 2022 Backlog Incident.
