Demon Lord for Hire (Lazy Review #27)

by E.M. Hardy (Author), LitRPG Freaks (Author), Reviewed by Ike Stepp (Blogger)

Quick Summary:

Fake demons, fake champions, and real cosmic meteorites .”

A wandering god of commerce goes from world to world, peddling his service. For a bit of divinity, he’ll pretend to be a demon lord and threaten your world. This gives gods an excuse to create champions and bless their people. Which in turn converts mortals into devoted faithful. The more followers they have, the stronger a god becomes. A good service.

Was it Good?  A fun little read.

My Opinion (Demon lord for Hire)

The book was good, and I recommend it. However, Reading the original description of this book gave me different expectations. I thought the book would be about an evil demon who hired himself out to morally questionable gods. The first couple of chapters reinforce this ideal as well. Yet the MC turns out to be a trauma-ridden goody two-shoes god who just likes to look evil for the sake of the bargain.

What will I remember after finishing this review? (Characters, Plots, Action)

A lot of this book is you watching the mc watching the side characters from afar. This works only because the main character’s personality is just that good. You really start rooting for him, aside from that, the heroes, mortals, and gods were just ok. I also liked the MC’s business-related powers and blessings. I wish the book had done more with that aspect of the story.

Will I check out more from this series or author after this lazy review?

Yes but there is no mention of a book 2 and with the way things ended. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was just a one shot.

Lastly, Feedback, suggestions, or recommendations about this review are always welcome.

Anyway, thanks for reading!
