ABOUT: After defeating the underground dragon and finishing up their business in the mercantile city of Marcade, Lizel and Gil resume their journey, having promised Judge’s grandfather to protect Judge along the way. But danger soon catches up to them when a strange group of bandits called the Forky Gang attacks in the middle of the night! It quickly becomes clear that someone is targeting Lizel… but who could it be, and for what reason?
As always, former noble and current adventurer Lizel takes all new developments in stride in his usual, laid-back fashion. He’s celebrating his promotion from a simple E-rank to a D-rank adventurer — and setting his sights on ranking up again soon!
My Review: Volume 3 was good! There were a few new interesting developments foreshadowing possible dangers on the horizon. Lizel and Gil continue to surprise others by doing the impossible. We’re briefly introduced to a new character who I think will add some liveliness to the story. My favorite part was Judge and Studd basically competing for Lizel’s attention and affection – they’re so adorable! I’m really looking forward to the next volume. It’s gearing up to be a fun one.
