Narrated by Felicia Day
Felicia Day is the perfect narrator for Rule of Cool; she suits the main character, Raze, and the humorous writing style of the book. Filled with dialogue that sparkles, Rule of Cool is an action-packed quest starring Raze and her dreamy crush, who thinks he’s a Hero. She doesn’t believe him, but he says she can become a Hero, too, and escape the drudge work she’s been doing all her life, with barely enough food to survive. One moment she’s chained to a desk, issuing quests to Heroes; the next she’s preparing for the battle of a lifetime. It’s unpredictable, hilarious, and just plain fun. Plus: Felicia Day!
For those who don’t know, the Urban Dictionary defines the Rule of Cool as “Effects and actions in movies that are 100% impossible but we love them so much.”
Critical Role Game Master Matthew Mercer did a post on Geek and Sundry about The Rule of Cool, where he defined it as “giving your players the chance to perform ridiculous stunts or bend the rules a little bit in the sake of an awesome scene.”
So this book is all about doing the impossible… for the amusement of the reader.
