Mini-Review: The Executioner and Her Way of Life, Vol 3

It seems impossible for me to talk about this series without gushing praise. Three novels down, this series is a MUST-READ for anyone looking for a change of pace in isekai formulas.

A reverse-isekai of sorts, this series follows Menou – an executioner tasked with eliminating Otherworlders from Japan, who enter this world with terrifyingly strong powers.

While growing ever closer to her seemingly unkillable target, Menou is dragged into political plots and awakening evil spreading across the land — and must confront her own traumatic past and the training that led her to be an Executioner.

The storyline is gripping and full of unexpected twists and turns. The all-female cast brings with it a broad array of great archetypes far behind the usual staples we see in female roles.

While minimal, the yuri and ecchi moments are a welcome change of pace; but make no mistake, this series is mostly all about magical battles, political intrigue, and mind-bending time-traveling plots.

Volume 3 is stronger than ever, although a little smaller than the past two. New characters, huge reveals, and unexpected betrayal!! It was everything I could have hoped for, and my anticipating for volume 4 is palpable!

Do yourself a favor and pick up this series now!
