drakan_glasses BE NICE! Fair critique is fair, but be respectful & follow the review rules. There will be no mercy.
Sort by:

It's nice ! A simple yet well done DnD novel, with all the weird randomness that implies (there's a friggin doobearian people, a doorbearian ) and the system that goes with it, clear and present, but non-intrusive.

But really the best part is Hilda, that grumpy, stubborn, willfull and kinda stupid somteimes dwarf of a MC. She's awesome, i love her and, like, all the characters are awesome but she's the awesomest.

I found the story to be interesting enough to hold my attention for the hour it took me to read it.

The style is different to me, as it's one of the RPG Lits, but at the same time the writer has a fun style that makes it something fun to read. The author isn't up his own butt about his story and obviously wrote it to entertain the reader rather than lecture them, which is nice. I liked the style and found it pleasant.

Grammar, there's a few little things here and there, but not bad. A few tense problems, but not enough to throw me out.

Story-wise, it's got good foreshadowing that you get a hint of the protagonist's final decision. It feels like a prologue, or an origin story, but it's still fun and self contained. There's enough sexual innuendo and tension to keep it a little fun there, but it isn't blatant, and the reasoning makes sense later. I enjoyed the story, just felt it had a couple little problems.

Now the characters. That's where the fun was. It's entirely character driven, some of the decisions the characters made had me smiling.

All in all, this is a good story, a good hour's read for a commute. You won't regret it.

Instantly hilarious, properly disrespectful to everyone equally, and just a blast to read!  Between the brass dragon preaching Ayn Rand to the elf princess comments, I couldn't put this book down.  I'm a huge fan of LitRPG and this did not disappoint.

Hilda Finds a Home is a fun and light read. Uri writes very well. It is well worth the time. I am sure you will enjoy it. The characters are consistent and interesting. The grammer is fine. The writing style is fun. The story is about a small minded Paladin trying to get enough money from a dungeon to buy a home



I absolutely loved "Hilda finds a home". The story and writing style kept my interest throughout. The author successfully injects this fantasy adventure with their own brand of humor, obviously intended for an audience of gamers familiar with D&D. Hilda the dwarven Paladin did indeed find a home....in my heart. Bravo!

Phoenix Kyten

So far I like it! It's a nice little Lit-RPG piece that does indeed break the 4th wall where you know your a character. It also takes that perspective and adds humor into it the character knows and can laugh at herself which is very refreshing in this time around the world. It's a nice guilty pleasure to sit back and read.


Just started reading and its great

Reviewed at: 3. Great Hall (Level 1)

I was recomended this by a friend, said it wouldn't disappoint. So I nabbed it and started reading on my phone during my lunch at work. Its damn good and easy to follow. I look forward to finishing it up and seeing what else this author has as this story has not disapointed me at all. The characters are interesting and the story is written well.

Salome Jones

This is quite entertaining and clever. I had never thought about it before, because it's never discussed in movies, but dwarves and other non-human beings are a bit earthier than I had imagined. I actually love it when people imagine things I never would have, so this is fairly cool. It's much better than R. A. Salvatore's stuff.


Just from the concept I'm hooked! I've been waiting for a while for a good Interpretation for the genre and this light reading and whimsical characters is really doing it for me. I'm a bit early in the game but this looks very promising. I like Hilda and her quirks and the way she thinks about life.
Treasure hunting for a new home! What a cute concept!


There are very few stories with dwarf protaganists, there are even fewer with female dwarf protaganists. Actually, I can't think of any! So it's been really cool to find this story about a dwarf female.
