Verified Purchase. It had a nice mix of dialogue, a bit of economics, and a good transition to the next book in the series. The first story was a nice a touch I was happy I guessed what was happening early on, and so wasn't too surprised by what happened , and the next two stories were also delightful additions. They combined some excitement, some mystery solving, and some more nice dialogue.
There's nothing too outstanding from previous work in the series, but it is solidly done and I enjoy it. The translator did a very good job with word choice and the rhythm of the prose works well.
February 20, - Published on Amazon. I know a lot of fans loved the epilogue volume; while I like it, I was still a bit disappointed for some reason.
This new volume helps by jumping ahead in the timeline again and presenting some smaller "adventures" in Lawrence and Holo's married life. While most of them contain some of the same bitter sweetness found throughout the majority of the series, for whatever reason it feels more mellow possibly because Lawrence as mellowed out more.
Note that as others state this is basically a set of short stories with one longer one sandwiched. August 29, - Published on Amazon.
This book was very entertaining. Nothing on par with the rest of the series, but you can't expect it to be seeing as they've settled down.
However, unorthodox schemes the likes of which only Lawrence and Holo could concoct are definitely in order. There are a few things I would have liked to see done differently, but that would mean making this family more normal. And they are anything but. Overall, it was good but not great.
I would definitely recommend it though. July 30, - Published on Amazon. I absolutely loved this volume.
Just when I thought I was done reading of their adventures there was more which is always welcome. According to him.

Full Description. The life of a traveling merchant is a lonely one, a fact with which Kraft Lawrence is well acquainted. Wandering from town to town with just his horse, cart, and whatever wares have come his way, the peddler has pretty well settled into his routine-that is, until the night Lawrence finds a wolf goddess asleep in his cart.
Taking the form of a fetching girl with wolf ears and a tail, Holo has wearied of tending to harvests in the countryside and strikes up a bargain with the merchant to lend him the cunning of "Holo the Wisewolf" to increase his profits in exchange for taking her along on his travels. What kind of businessman could turn down such an offer? Lawrence soon learns, though, that having an ancient goddess as a traveling companion can be a bit of a mixed blessing.
