Summary

A kingdom torn by war. A curse whispered by dying lips. A hero born against his will.  
Khirro never wanted to be anything more than the farmer he was born to be, but a Shaman's curse binds him to the fallen king and his life changes forever.  
Driven by the Shaman's dying words, Khirro's journey pits him against an army of the dead, sends him through haunted lands, and thrusts him into the jaws of beasts he wouldn't have believed existed. In one hand he carries the Shaman's enchanted sword, a weapon he can barely use, in the other he holds a vial of the king's blood, the hope of the kingdom. His destination: the Necromancer's keep in the cursed land of Lakesh. Only the mysterious outlaw magician can raise the king from the dead to save them all from the undead invasion, but can Khirro live long enough to deliver the vial?  
Can a coward save a kingdom?

    Even though I don’t want to go to the dungeon!Caught up in a “Hero Summoning,” the hapless Mukohda was brought to another world from modern Japan, but he decided to make the most of it and enjoy a leisurely life of travel with his familiars, Fel and Sui. With new goddesses forcing blessings on him in exchange for offerings, and another familiar in the form of a peckish pixie dragon, Mukohda steadily amasses wealth and power. Finally, the cowardly hero (with a little “help” from his friends) has reached the city of Dolan, where he will challenge the city’s dungeon, whether he wants to or not! But the challenges start before he sets foot inside the dungeon, such as getting accosted by a disappointment of a guildmaster, extorted for booze by some rather intense male gods, and splurging on an actual kitchen stove. For Mukohda, diligent preparation for dungeon diving begins with preparing enough meals to satisfy his voracious companions. Thus armed to battle his familiar’s hunger, Mukohda’s party sets its sights on glorious battle in the dungeon. With ridiculous skills and overpowered magic beasts on his side, does the dungeon even stand a chance……?!
