An inn is a place to rest, a place to talk and share stories, or a place to find adventures, a starting ground for quests and legends.

In this world, at least. To Erin Solstice, an inn seems like a medieval relic from the past. But here she is, running from Goblins and trying to survive in a world full of monsters and magic. She’d be more excited about all of this if everything wasn’t trying to kill her.

But an inn is what she found, and so that’s what she becomes. An innkeeper who serves drinks to heroes and monsters–

Actually, mostly monsters. But it’s a living, right?

This is the story of the Wandering Inn.

Updates every Tuesday and Saturday.

  1. Hey Pirate Aba! I’ve loved the audibook of vol 1 and am trying to wait for vol 2. Thank you and the narrator for this great read =)

  2. Please have volume 2 on audible, I am almost done with volume 1 and am dreading the ending because I know that’s it!
    This book is magical, engaging, and WONDERFUL!

  3. Found The Wandering Inn Volume 1 on Audible and loved every minute of it. Two and a half months later and I am now completely caught up and kinda sad that I now have to WAIT between chapter releases. This is absolutely something I’ll be coming back to for years, and one of my favorite pieces of fiction across any medium. In my top ten for sure.

    The characters are fleshed out, flawed, and endearing. The story is gripping and rarely goes in the direction you’d expect; the world so enriched, so detailed, that I almost feel like I know more about it than I do of the real one. Which…is maybe kinda sad on my part, but ANYWAYS

    I fucking adore The Wandering Inn. Thank you pirateaba for creating this you amazing [Writer], you.

  4. I am reading volume 2 now (purchased on Amazon). When will later volumes be released for purchase? Reading them here is nice, but (1) that doesn’t make any money for the author, and (2) I want to be able to read offline. Great series! Amazing worldbuilding!

    • I devoured volume 1&2 and eagerly await Vol. 3. I don’t mind paying for the books. Please release Vol 3 soon. Reading offline is way better for me

    • If you would like to give money to her, go to Patreon! donating 5$ a month gives you the chapter before the public gets it aswell!

      • I think he means he wants to buy book 3 so he can read it offline. Which will also take several months before the third book is released as well.

  5. Hello Pirate Aba! I have been loving listening to Volume 1 on audible and I can’t wait till Volume 2 comes out! The story and writing is excellent and Andrea Parsneau’s performance is wonderful. Please come out with Volume 2 soon! I have been listening non-stop to the first book and am totally lost in the story!

  6. Ok, I’m absolutely hooked! Just finishing up v.2 now and awaiting more. Found you on my kindle as a recommendation, one of the best ones I’ve ever gotten. Thank you for your efforts.

  7. You have created an adorable piece of fiction. I am longing for part 2 as an Audiobook. Great Speaker for Volume one. Any clues when Volume 2 might be available?

  8. have just finished volume 1 on audible and was truly blown away, am now torn between reading volume 2 or waiting for it to come out on audible as the narration was truly inspiring and added to what was already a phenomenal tale, will volume 2 be coming out as an audiobook?

  9. Thank you for an amazing world. I can’t wait for Volume 2 to come out on Audible, I check weekly. I’m almost through my second listening of Volume 1. Well Done!!

  10. My husband loved your book so much on Audible he asks me every day to check if the volume 2 is out yet. Every Day. It’s is really adorable and at the same time really annoying. If you could find it in your heart to publish the volume 2 audio book very soon I would be very grateful.

  11. Hey, For anyone just finding this site, for pirateaba, and for everyone who’s been living here, I’m John Lapides, and I absolutely love this series… I really couldn’t stand it at first when I was introduced through the audible to the constant complaints about dust, but now I don’t know where my imagination would be without them… Erin and the other wonderful characters of this world comfort me so much that I caught up with volume 6 as it was being shared and remembered the dysphoric feeling of finishing a series, or having to wait for another book… ONLY TO HAVE THE NEXT CHAPTER COME OUT SOON AFTER!!!! I have been a devout One Piece fan for years, and now live by the same strategy with these two giant worlds: I TRY TO NEVER CATCH UP… (I know all caps are annoying, but thats how I feel…) I have found that I enjoy always having a few extra chapters of the wandering inn ahead of me… letting me know that there is something to look forward to… also, it’s easier to wait when its my choice, and I know that there is an accumulation of feast ahead… That is all, thank you pirateaba for writing, and thank you everyone else for continuing to read so that we can keep finding out more about this fascinating world and that wonderful Inn that I hope to one day stumble into… best clown ever… mumble mumble… I f@#ing love this series…

  12. I really liked this chapter! It was actually pretty nice that it didn’t do too much stuff at once. Excited to see where these threads go!

  13. If anyone deserves a bit of plot armor it’s Ryoka. Every time she does something brave or tries to step up disaster strikes.

  14. I know that audible just released volume 2, but I was wondering if volume’s 3-6 are being produced? If so, is there any timeline for their release??

  15. I am about to complete listening to volume 2 and these books are now among my favorites. I cannot wait for the next installments to arrive on audiobook. Please, please, please continue to utilize Andrea Parsn

  16. Hi Pirate Aba, Many thanks for your awesome story. I found it last year around this time and have spent many entertaining weeks having read the entire story 3 times now. I recently came out of a 3 year hermit mode and discovered I still have money in PayPal, you are the first to benefit as I consider you my top web entertainment. kind regards Brycie.
