Meet Threadbare. He is twelve inches tall, full of fluff, and really, really bad at being a hero. Magically animated and discarded by his maker as a failed experiment, he is saved by a little girl. But she's got problems of her own, and he might not be able to help her.

Fortunately for the little golem, he's quick to find allies, learn skills, gain levels, and survive horrible predicaments. Which is good, because his creator has a whole lot of enemies...

(Cover by Amber Rimkus)

Never written a review before. This story is amazing. I believe it has an original story that is very flushed out angives good detail on what’s happening.

Basicly its a story about the adventures of a Toy Golem that gains sentience.

The MC is constantly doing funny and ADORABLE things. Definetly worth the read!!!!

Wow I am loving this story, it's amazing. Though you might have to put a tag warning of the level of cutieness that is in this novel. I went aww like 15 times so far.

  • Overall Score

Amazing, for a lack of better adjectives.

Threadbare combines unreliable narration, clever worldbuilding, ingenious humor and likeable characters into one of the best ongoing stories I've had the pleasure of reading.

A little hero with a big heart

Excellent world building, great characters, and interesting plot.  Don't let the cutness of the our hero be bearicade to you reading this great story!

This is a real gem. The book is well thought out, very well written and to the author i say: Well played, sir!

After 70 chapters i have chosen to review this book, which is not something i do often. This book is VERY well written. The story is coherent and complete. The world- and characterbuilding is done flawlessly and the story has enough silly and tragic to make you laugh and cry with the characters. The characters have depth and personal growth, with individual quirks and personalities.
The world is complex and heartless, and our teddys quest to reunite with his little girl seems impossible at first. Yet with friends and the right attitude, (and ALOT of grindluck!), nothings impossible!

TLDR: Your emotions will be played with as you follow the teddybear who just wanted to be with his little girl. Instead he is sent on a grand quest of impossible proportions, connecting with old friends and new.

Perfect for what it's trying to do and I love it
