OR_ORIG_000764 How To Defeat A Demon King FULL BADGE

This book is my loving and comedic homage to NES games like the original Zelda, Final Fantasy, and Dragon Quest. You’ve seen a lot of those influences in my previous works, but this one gets more into parody territory. It’s a lighthearted LitRPG with a lot of references to those works, as well as some gamier stuff that may feel a little more D&Dish. It plays with a lot of the tropes those stories created, similar to works like Maoyuu Maou Yuusha or Rokka no Yuusha.

This is a novella, not a full novel, so don’t expect the kind of length of my usual works.

I hope people enjoy it!

  1. I want to listen to this ASAP but Canada audible is at it again: no audible orginal deals and super expensive prices (member price is still a whopping 27 bucks after the 30% discount). I will have to wait to get this on ebook even though I love audiobooks for LitRPG.

    1. Ive loved all your work, but this honestly might be my favorite thing you’ve written so far. Keep it up!

  2. First time I’ve listened to a work of yours. I kind of hope that it’s well received enough for a part two. It was an entertaining listen, I really liked the narrator.

  3. I’ve been saving this as a reward for defending my doctoral thesis. Glad I did, tell the narrator she’s killing it! Between her and Nick your books always seem to be exceptionally narrated. 10/10

  4. Finished this novella on a road trip. When I arrived home, I urged my wife to listen as well. We both enjoyed it tremendously. I planned on posting a glowing review on Audible and Amazon for it, but you already had a plethora of five-stars there, so I plugged it enthusiastically on my Facebook page. Damn good job!

  5. This is the first book I have read (or have read to me) authored by you. I apologize for taking so long to have discovered your work. I loved the characters, their development, the bickering between Yui and Ken and especially the storytelling. In addition, the narrator added a whole new level to the book. Definitely looking forward to reading your novels. Thank you very much.

    1. I’m always glad to have a new reader! Thanks for reading the book, and I’m glad you liked it! I hope you enjoy any of my other works you decide to pick up.

  6. I absolutely love this book! It’s wonderfully unique, and I adore the RPG aspect. I had been daydreaming about how someone could create an isekai or rpg-like story (that is, in my opinion, well done), and you certainly did it! I’ve since downloaded one of your other stories. I’m glad to have found another author to follow. I hope you continue to find stories to write.

    1. Still working on it! AA3 is still planned for this year, but it’ll probably be around the end of the year. The AA books are much longer and more complex than my other books, so they take a lot of time to get right.

  7. Why. Oh why. Oh WHY is there not a purchasable physical version of this? We listened to the audio book and my hubby and I laughed our way through the whole thing, and we’re excited to go buy it for all the tween geeklets in our life.. To find its not an actual physical entity.

    I may cry real tears now.. (We absolutely loved the book, btw, and are now looking at your other work)

      1. Fantastic! I know what all the 10 through 16 year old geek kids are getting for the winter holidays. (Also some adults.. But I think I know a lot of teens who will be super happy to be able to see their own traits in a book. Representation matters in all sorts of ways. )

  8. Was a good story, enjoyed the Zelda vibe quite a bit. Deff missed an opportunity w/ the ending though … You had the Hero that “Quit the game” at the water temple, and the Hero that did the Speed run, but the epilogue didnt contain anything about the very confused hero that spawned into a game that had already beat itself 😉
