People of the internet, citizens of all fandoms, read this book!
A Hero at the End of the World is a story that will have you laughing, cheering and smiling by its end. Claiborne’s novel is a cheeky and refreshing take on the Chosen One trope. With diverse characters, an original style, and a clever plot it was a pleasure to read.
Billed as a Harry Potter-esque story, the protagonist, Ewan Mao, fails to “slay” the villain that he has been prophesized to kill ever since he was a small child. Instead his best friend, Oliver Abrams, does the deed and Ewan is left to pick up the pieces of his life and move on. When Archibald Gardener Hobbes steps into a café and finds Ewan working there he fanboys out. This sets them on a path leading to the end of the world.
