Thirty years after the Demon Wars, peace has returned to the land of Lodoss–but darkness looms. After defending his village against a horde of goblins, a headstrong young warrior named Parn sets out on a quest to restore his father’s honor and save the realm. Joining Parn are Deedlit the high elf, Slayn the wizard, Etoh, a fledgling priest, Ghim, a grizzled dwarven warrior, and Woodchuck, a wily thief. Along their journey, Parn and his companions discover an evil witch who, for eons, has been manipulating events from the shadows. Can this ragtag party of heroes defeat the all-powerful Grey Witch and prevent Lodoss and its kingdoms from descending into total chaos and destruction?

Venture Into Lodoss

by -

The original light novel that led to the creation of a hit franchise is finally available in English. I love fantasy, and Lodoss (also Crystania and Rune Soldier) has been a favorite of mine for many years, so I was overjoyed that Seven Seas decided to release first novel, The Grey Witch, in English. I read the entire book and took no issue with the translation/adaptation. The entire time I was reading the book I couldn't stop smiling. There is a ton of backstory included that was left out of the OVA adaptation, so the next time I give it a rewatch it will be an even more enjoyable experience.

Aesthetic-wise, Seven Seas also knocked it out of the park. This hardback book is absolutely gorgeous with gold foiling that covers faux black leather. I actually cried the first time I laid eyes on it because it looks so stunning in person.

If you're a fan of fantasy, please pick up this book to encourage the sequels to be released. The cursed island continent of Lodoss awaits you.

Really Meh

by -

This novel was a solid "okay" to me. It wasn't overtly bad, but it wasn't great by any stretch. I went in blind, only really knowing that it sounded like a high fantasy novel. While it has all of the high fantasy elements (elves, dwarves, magic, etc.), the characters all just seemed so flat and one dimensional to me. After I finished the novel, I did some additional research and discovered that it's supposed to be based off of what was basically a Dungeons & Dragons campaign that the author put together. I have to admit that I know zilch about D&D, so maybe I wasn't the intended audience. So, readers with that kind of role-playing background might enjoy it more.
I will say that presentation-wise, this book is really nice. It's got a really nice faux leather texture for the hard cover, and the gold trim on the cover, back, and spine really pops. It looks great on the bookshelf, at least.
