Synopsis

One by one, the mercenaries who raised Loren fell in a terrible, bloody battle. The lone survivor in a hard world with only his wits and his sword to his name, Loren hires himself out as an adventurer. His new party, however, proves all too willing to run headlong into danger using him as their meat shield. Only Lapis, the party's sly priest, sees his true worth, just as Loren sees hers. They must rely on each other, or else neither of them will live to see the end of their first adventure.

It takes a little while to roll into the meat of the story, and if you don't like a series that burns kinda slow and low (it takes three whole books before you get introduced to a hint of a large scale plot), you ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (6/? eps)
Saying "Hooray! It's competent!" is a textbook example of condemning with faint praise, but such is the state of fantasy light novels that even checking off the most bare basics of storytelling is enough to be noteworthy.

STORY

The plot of the first novel is an origin story and those tend to be the weakest parts of a long running series, so I'll cut it a little slack. As an origin story, it does check all the boxes of establishing the main characters' backstories and motivations, setting up a solid framework for future installments. I do have a complaint about the world-building, however, in that it's extremely ...
