Ratings & Reviews
Provides a nice epilogue to Spice and Wolf
by George -
If you enjoyed the light novel series of Spice and Wolf, then you should enjoy the continuation of the series with our main characters. It takes place approximately 10 to 12 years after the last novel and the chapters are a collection of shorter stories related to the daily lives of Holo and Lawrence.
This volume provides a bit more closure to the series, but it is a bit disappointing that this larger volume is not simply one continuous story.
There are a few topics that are not really explain by the author. Holo does not age, but is known as Lawrence's wife and still goes into town. Suspicious by the townsfolk is merely overlooked by Lawrence mentioning that Holo doesn't go into town too often.
I also think Lawrence's should have a better understanding of reading Holo's thoughts and mood a bit more after their dozen years of marriage.
Overall, the volume is enjoyable but there are some choices by the author that are a little puzzling.
