This was an Audible freebie. It was also a sneaky litrpg, a genre I really don't care for. Still, it was funny and had plenty of Zelda references which was nice. Voice acting was good too. ( )

Kind of like a live-action D&D adventure, with a little Magic the Gathering thrown in. I liked the narration, and other than a few very "convenient" abilities earned by the characters, it was a solid story in an interesting universe. ( )

Listened to audio narrated very well by Suzy Jackson and Steve West.

This is an Audible Original which I choose in May's monthly free selections.

This book attempts to make a fun story out of a role playing game. Their world has a one hundred year cycle, a time for the Demon King to rise and conquer and in a hundred years a Hero will rise to defeat him. Unfortunately the latest Demon King isn't following the script and after only 23 years has already conquered over half of the world.

With fears that there will be nothing left by the time the Hero is reborn Yui Shaw is determined to find a way to defeat the Demon King before he takes over the entire world. She seeks out skills and training in hopes to acquire the legendary hero sword and acquires a sidekick and a fairy along the way to help her on her quest.

While I like the idea of converting game play to a story, the author sticks too closely to game language, skills and leveling design and less on a believable, seamless story. There are a lot of fun, quirky moments, but the author is always telling us what happens instead of letting us experience it. It's very clunky reading about her leveling up and how she's applying her skill points, as well as always using game commands instead of describing the action.

This might be a great story for younger readers or GameLit/LitRPG fans but it missed the mark for me as fantasy fiction.

If you like my reviews I hope you will follow my blog. https://wyldheartreads.wordpress.com/

Cute LitPRG which is basically Legend of Zelda fanfic. Some of the plot was predictable (especially if you know the Zelda games) but that's okay. The characters are what made this so enjoyable. I do like Yui's tricks to get around not being a true hero — it reminds me of some of the ways speedrunners will break the games they play in order to get faster times. ( )

Role Playing Game Narration
Review of the Audible Original audiobook (April 30, 2020

This is one of the oddest audiobooks that I've every heard. It follows a hero, Yui Shaw, through the various levels of a fictitious role playing game where the purpose is to defeat the big boss called the Demon King at the end. The hero and other female voices are voiced by Suzy Jackson in what was an entertaining performance throughout. The sidekick and other male voices are voiced by Steve West, who was also excellent. It is really the narration that gets this a "Like" rating, as I can't really understand why fans would listen a narration rather than actually play such as game themselves. So I'm not the audience for this, but only tried it out due to its free availability.

How to Defeat a Demon King was one of the 10 free Audible Original audiobooks for members for the month of May 2020. It is available to everyone for a standard price.

Trivia and Link
The lead character's name Yui Shaw is a Western approximation of the Japanese 勇者 (pronounced Yūsha) which means brave or hero. The origin of this and some further background on the story inspiration is explained in an author's Q&A here. ( )
