First, I bought this book as a gift to my girlfriend this past Christmas. I saw it on here (Amazon) for a decent price and paid for a copy. It arrived at my door-step about a week later; all nice and shiny. When she saw the package, she kept bothering me about what it is and if she could have it. I caved in and let her open it a few days before the holiday. She was so happy she almost cried.
Second, my gf is a massive D&D nerd. She watches all kinds of videos (mostly from Critical Role) on learning how to play and even start her own stories. She LOVES the book to death and I can see why! Loads of info on all types of monsters/creatures in the D&D world. Everything is so well organized and easy to reference when needed. Really awesome book!
And lastly, she keeps telling me that when she has enough ideas prepared that she wants to see what I would do against certain monsters in our own D&D game! Oh boy...I am very nervous for that day! T_T
Book score: 10 out of 10 My future demise: Pending....
