Description

The much-beloved BookTok sensation Legends & Lattes is Travis Baldree's novel of high fantasy and low stakes.

*This paperback edition includes a very special, never-before-seen bonus story, 'Pages to Fill.'*

After a lifetime of bounties and bloodshed, Viv is hanging up her sword for the last time.

The battle-weary orc aims to start fresh, opening the first ever coffee shop in the city of Thune. But old and new rivals stand in the way of success -- not to mention the fact that no one has the faintest idea what coffee actually is.

If Viv wants to put the blade behind her and make her plans a reality, she won't be able to go it alone.

But the true rewards of the uncharted path are the travelers you meet along the way. And whether drawn together by ancient magic, flaky pastry, or a freshly brewed cup, they may become partners, family, and something deeper than she ever could have dreamed.

"Take a break from epic battles and saving the world. Legends & Lattes is a low-stakes fantasy that delivers exactly what's advertised: a wholesome, cozy novel that feels like a warm hug. This is my new comfort read."--Genevieve Gornichec, author of The Witch's Heart

Review quote

This is a story about following your dreams, even when they take you away from who you thought you had to be. It's sweet, beautiful and, most of all, kind. I hugely recommend this book.--Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of Every Heart A Doorway

"Legends & Lattes is a big-hearted story about the small things in life. A lovingly written ode to the genre, it is a must-read for every D&D player who has ever wondered what happens after 'happily ever after.'"--Cassandra Khaw, USA Today bestselling author

A gentle little cozy set against an epic fantasy backdrop. . . . This charming outing will please anyone who's ever wished to spend time in a fantasy world without all the quests and battles.--Publishers Weekly

"Legends & Lattes is a uniquely beautiful book. Its cast of endearing characters have no interest at all in killing one another. There is no Great Evil, no bloody battles, and yet the pillars of great fantasy--resilience, fellowship, and a desire to make the world a better place--are all here. It's wonderfully wholesome, and I hope heralds the rise of a 'slice-of-life' sub-genre in modern fantasy."--Nicholas Eames, author of Kings of the Wyld

"The most fun I've ever had in a coffee shop."--Ben Aaronovitch, bestselling author of Rivers of London

"I absolutely loved this book. It's a heartwarming story of how effort, intention and coffee can work together to change the world for the better. Fills my hunger for happy endings."--Genevieve Cogman, author of The Invisible Library

"An orc retires from adventuring to start a fantasy city's very first coffee shop. This setup combined with the positive messages of defying societal stereotypes, letting go of violence to build peace, and trusting in your friends feels like a premise from Terry Pratchett's Discworld. . . . Legends & Lattes is a novel, and shop, that will delight anyone who enjoys coffee-shop alternate universes, slow-burn romances, and the vindication of friendship."--Booklist, starred review

"Take a break from epic battles and saving the world. Legends & Lattes is a low-stakes fantasy that delivers exactly what's advertised: a wholesome, cozy novel that feels like a warm hug. This is my new comfort read."--Genevieve Gornichec, author of The Witch's Heart
