Book Review: Hazelhearth Hires Heroes by D. H. Willison + giveaway

Hazelhearth Hires Heroes
by D. H. Willison
July 29, 2021
Fantasy Adventure/Fantasy Humor
320 pages
Welcome to Hazelhearth: our picturesque city is nestled in a tranquil corner of the empire. Fitness lovers enjoy vigorous nature walks in the surrounding forest (don’t forget your sword!) Foodies savor rich, robust walnut-based cuisine. Or visit the gnome quarter for a walk on the wild side! Loca lmines and orchards beckon with plentiful employment opportunities, while workers sleep safe knowing that stout city walls keep mythic monsters at bay. A select few may even be chosen for exciting quest opportunities.

The onslaught of subterranean hordes? Oh, that’s happening miles away. And the elves have it completely under control.

Inquire today at the Hazelhearth board of tourism, employment, and heroics!

How could Sam and Lee say no? Lee is bored to tears as a telegrapher. His only excitement in life is the revolutionary new board game he’s creating. And of course constant disruptions at work by Sam, whose high voltage experiments wreak havoc with nearby electric systems. These two best buddies… colleagues... acquaintances are ready to escape from 19th century America into a more exciting world!

I kind of goofed on this book. I thought it was a graphic novel! I misread the promo material. So I didn't have enough time to read it. But I check out the first two chapters and was pleasantly surprised! Hazelhearth Hires Heroes seems like a fun read. The pace is fast and there is lots of humor. The knock is the heavy description...but I only read two chapters. It also looks like the writer is a D&D fan! lol. If you look at his bio you'll understand lol.

I checked out some of the other reviews and they all have pretty much the same thing to say: fast-paced, lovable characters, fun (this word shows up a lot!) read.

It appears this would be a great adventure book to read to younger children and for the older kids to read.

I hope I can find time to finish Hazelhearth Hires Heroes!
