Publisher's summary

For thousands of years, there has been a cycle: a Demon King rises and conquers, and a Hero is reborn a hundred years later to defeat him. Each time, civilizations are ground to dust beneath the Demon King's hordes, but humanity has remained secure in the belief that a Hero of legend will always save them. There's just one slight problem. It's only been 23 years since the Demon King's latest rise, and this time, he's already conquered more than half the world. If humanity simply waits for the Hero's return, there may be no world left for him to save.

And so, Yui Shaw sets out with an ambitious plan. A 10-step plan.

She'll find a way to obtain the Hero's legendary sword. She'll earn obscure classes, gain levels, and increase her skills. She'll travel to the meticulously-crafted dungeons that seem designed for one specific Hero to complete. And, if she's truly (un)fortunate, she might even find a fairy.

She might not be a Hero - but if she can fake it long enough, she might still be able to save the world.

After leaving Blizzard, he worked at other amazing companies like Cryptic Studios and Obsidian Entertainment. As a long-time RPG enthusiast, Andrew draws heavily from games for his inspiration, especially Japanese role-playing games (JRPGs) like Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Ys, Fire Emblem, and The Legend of Heroes.
In his free time, Andrew still runs roleplaying games in the same universe as his books, including Spider Climb, an interactive web serial where fans vote on how the story progresses after each chapter.
