Why You Should Read 'The Wandering Inn'

The Wandering Inn
 By Pirateaba
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - The audio book version of The Wandering Inn is one of those hidden treasures that you stumble upon and wonder why you've never heard of it before. The story is basically a Dungeons and Dragons isekai adventure, where characters from our modern world are mysteriously transported to a land of goblins, drakes, giant ants, faeries, and the undead, just to name a few. The two main characters, Erin Solstice and Ryoka Griffn, try to make a living using the meager skills that they have while attempting to assimilate themselves into the strange cultures of magic and a mystifying leveling system much like a DnD game. Erin finds an abandoned inn and becomes an innkeeper. Ryoka has a passion for barefoot running and becomes a messenger, since technology like phones or cars do not exist in this world. They undergo many trials and tribulations as they try to adapt to this strange world while at the same time using their natural talents just to survive. But they can't help but wonder as to why they were summoned to this world in the first place. Could it be that someone is interested in their knowledge of our modern day technology? Bullets and bombs would make excellent weapons to conquer a world such as this where swords and shields are the primary weapons of war. So both Erin and Ryoka must be very careful of not revealing too much of what they know. This new world has become a place they both love, and the last thing they need is someone stealing their knowledge to make nuclear weapons. Not that they know how to make nukes. But the people there are smart. And if the girls were to let slip that E = mc2, who knows where that could lead. And what's worse is that Erin and Ryoka are not the only ones brought to this world. There are dozens. Maybe hundreds. And someone is hunting them down...

The narrator for The Wandering Inn audio book is Andrea Parsneau. Her talent for doing multiple characters in distinct voices with various accents for both male and female is unparalleled. It is Miss Parsneau's narration that absolutely brought out the best of this book. I highly recommend getting the Audibke version, and spend a few days escaping this drab world and exploring The Wandering Inn where friends and adventurers await.

"No killing Goblins."
So reads the sign outside of the Wandering Inn, a small building run by a young woman named Erin Solstice. She serves pasta with sausage, blue fruit juice, and dead acid flies on request. And she comes from another world. Ours.
It’s a bad day when Erin finds herself transported to a fantastical world and nearly gets eaten by a dragon. She doesn’t belong in a place where monster attacks are a fact of life, and where humans are one species among many. But she must adapt to her new life. Or die.
In a dangerous world where magic is real and people can level up and gain classes, Erin Solstice must battle somewhat evil goblins, deadly rock crabs, and hungry [necromancers]. She is no warrior, no mage. Erin Solstice runs an inn.

She’s an [innkeeper].
