In exchange for an honest review

Oh this was fun fun fun! Think playing a game, but instead of game you live in that world, that makes no sense in a way, but make total sense to them.

The world is being taken over by a demon king, but that happens every 1000th year. Which makes no sense. Cos he has not been defeated every time, but the world still stands. Oh this world is crazy, I loved it.

A hero also always rises to fight the demon king. But this demon king is smart and will have conquered everything by the time a hero comes along. Oh and the hero always has to do the same thing too, wear the same clothes, same weapons, same dungeons. Same songs. How this world still stands I do not know.

Anyway in comes Yui, f that hero bs. She will save the world! By her way. And her way is awesome. The ways by how she does it, I applaud her. I also really liked her at once. She does not give up, even if she has to fight every slime monster in the world.

Humor, adventure, and an unlikely hero that turns out to be the best heroine the world can ever want. What was there not to like! Recommended for the weird fun

The narration was spot on. There are two narrators, one for Yui and one for levelling up, the "video game voice" ;)

The narration for Yui was filled with everything she was. She truly nailed it there. Her demon king voice, oh my, loved it, but then the demon king was *laughs, spoilers!* Fun!
Great narration with the feel of the book done perfectly.

For thousands of years, there has been a cycle: a Demon King rises and conquers, and a Hero is reborn a hundred years later to defeat him. Each time, civilizations are ground to dust beneath the Demon King's hordes, but humanity has remained secure in the belief that a Hero of legend will always save them. There's just one slight problem. It's only been 23 years since the Demon King's latest rise, and this time, he's already conquered more than half the world. If humanity simply waits for the Hero's return, there may be no world left for him to save.

And so, Yui Shaw sets out with an ambitious plan. A 10-step plan.

She'll find a way to obtain the Hero's legendary sword. She'll earn obscure classes, gain levels, and increase her skills. She'll travel to the meticulously-crafted dungeons that seem designed for one specific Hero to complete. And, if she's truly (un)fortunate, she might even find a fairy.

She might not be a Hero—but if she can fake it long enough, she might still be able to save the world.


  1. Oh, this does sound like a lot of fun! I will have to add it to my wish list. Thanks!

  2. This is so my kind of read. Thanks Blodeuedd

  3. This one's new to me, and it sounds awesome! I must look into this one the next time I contact Audible. And I love Steve West, his accent is so swoony :) I guess he's the video game voice?

    1. I did like his voice, but alas, he was not around much, but yes he was the "video game" voice

  4. A world inside a game... Sounds zany, but fun!

    1. Well it is not a game. It is a real world that plays like one of our video games

  5. This is a nice short audio. I need a few of those to catch up. Love Steve West!
