The beginning was really great, but becomes stale real fast. At first Lecan was learning his new world fast and moving on to explore the world, but once he meets up with Shira and Eda, all that stops. He decides to settle down because of Eda and has not left to explore other regions.
The author keeps teasing us with Princess Ruby and the necklace she gave him, but we get nothing out of it. 12 Volumes in and Lecan lost all interest in everything outside the scope of Eda, tied down like he has children to babysit or something.
I can’t help but feel that the story has not progressed ever since Princess Ruby left and just became another generic SoL.
