i enjoyed time I spent with this book. it is well written and enjoyable. my only complaint is that I enjoyed the flashbacks more than the current time action, which simply means that the Author knows what he is good at writing and makes sure to include it.
the characters have flaws and backstory that ensures they are more than 2 dimensional and make you care about them...
The LITrpg part is very light with little crunch, but it works in the setting, though might still be relevant to some.

Wayne and Lisa makes an fine pairing, which feels both competent and well worked.
their readings are so dynamic and fun that I wouldn't be surprised they did the readings in 1 booth just to play off of one another

More than a year after she helped save the world from the Sparnaxian invasion, Andrea Vernon is in a good place. Her boss is giving her greater responsibility and she’s getting to travel a lot (although her fill-in is hopeless at making coffee); things could be getting even more serious with her 8’ 4” superhero boyfriend, The Big Axe; and she has a really fun new BFF, Never More. Small issue, though, with that last item - Never More is a supervillain bent on world domination, and it looks as if nothing can stop her.

oh god! The puns! They burnses! So many!!!

I don't recall the last time I laughed this hard or this long...
This is a true masterpiece of humour, puns and jokes...
If you didn't enjoy the humour of the first one, you should avoid this like the plague.
The actual story is nothing special, but Mr. Kane' telling of it is something else all together, and Ms. Turpin raises it to a whole new level.
So many wonderful voices with those little extra touches like Nevermore's crowing... Truly impressive <3

Follows all the thropes of YA, but is very well written and paced. There is a good amount of world building and s lot of the book is spent enjoying the setting up of things to come in the next books.

Sarah and Steve seems more like two great solo narrators put together here. They both do a great job when looking at their individual chapters and I very much enjoyed their performances, however in a duo book like this one, diction, speech patterns and the like needs to be as similar as possible and I just didn't feel they were quite there... It was nothing big, mostly how they pronounced certain names... but when that is the only complaint I've got, it's got to be pretty good

honestly, just read my review of book 1, this book have the same merits, the same flaws and I enjoyed my time with it...

"the story is entirely enjoyable. Nothing that will rock your world or make you sit back and re-evaluate you life. simply a great way to spend time.

as to the narration Chris brought it to this one, both males and females were perfectly voiced and you could recognise them by their voices alone."

Somewhere out there, in the great expanse of space and time, exist the Fabled Islands. Nobody knows how or why they exist, only that it is a strange and special place that operates under laws separate from the universe. The Fabled Islands are made up of vast floating continents. They vary in size, with some ranging from the surface area of a small planet to a star. If you look at them from afar, you would find that they are placed in a line. Each island is separated by a vast amount of space, so there is only one way to travel from one island to the next.

I adored this book. I was draw in from moment 1 and kept finding excuses to listen, I even messed up an ankle because I went for a much longer walk than usual just so I could listen more.
the characters reminds me of older RPGs in that they aren't well fleshed out, but by the end they are starting to show some growth and I suspect there will be more of it in the next book.
there are however plenty of action and exploration with a MC that is used to being OP, but occasionally finds out that he isn't the only one who have impressive skills...

as to the narration Steve Campbell does a sweet job of giving the characters voices and personalities with his narration.
there is room for improvement and a few sound effects would do wonders, but he is closer to the 4th star than the 3rd...
I can see him becoming one of my stable of go to narrators...

Across the bottom of the screen the ticker tape announced in large black letters 'Governor Reynolds Murdered'. Apparently his body had been discovered earlier that morning, lying in his garage. He had been shot twice. One shot to the upper chest, the other hitting his shoulder. 'Police believe that the weapon used was a 38 revolver,' the reporter said. Kendall froze. Anthony Shaw had also been killed by a 38 calibre bullet. Kendall was not quite sure of what it all meant. What connection was there between Anthony Shaw, and the State Governor, and the business mogul, Ian Duncan. And what about Senator Mackenzie? Where did he fit in? And who or what was Latimer?

The telling (both Author and Narrator) was just do monotonous that paying attention to this book became a chore...
nothing really happened in the story and the narrators inflection mirrored this perfectly...

I don't actually think that this is a bad book, but it isn't for me...
if you are very interested in political dramas with a glacial pace, this is what you have been looking for...

this story grabbed my attention from the first paragraph and clung to it till the last word.
Mr. Hummel have done an excellent job of crafting the world and the story.
The MC quickly become somewhat OP along with his companion, so their struggles rarely seems like they will fail, but the story remains compelling, which is a testament to Mr. Hummels skill.

Armen tailor does a great job voicing the MC and the male cast, however it is Anneliese Rennie that elevates this story to something more than a reading of the book, turning it into an experience.

Five years ago, hungry for energy and profits, the Union Forest Corporation embarked on an aggressive search for alternative power sources. In their quest they drilled too deeply, releasing a long-forgotten evil that’s been terrorizing the planet. As frightening as the dragon is, the executives at Union Forest are more terrified of losing corporate secrets than losing human lives. Somewhere in that drilling site, there’s a data core that they desperately want back.

the story is excellently thought out, but it seems evident that the Author is new to writing doing a lot of rookie mistakes...
some of them is grama, others is repeating descriptive words several times in on each other following sentences, lastly a few times it's outright making characters do stupid shit to get the story moving which frustrates me when the characters are highly trained spec ops soldiers...
I will keep an eye on Daniel Swenson, the stories will probably remain amazing and the skills will improve with practice.

Steve Campbell does a great job of giving the characters voices...
not much to say, he makes the experience better

An fairly average book, an that is not meant as a criticism. it is good at all it does, there is merely no part that is outstanding.
I enjoyed my time with this book and if you are looking for a Harem book low on the sex and high on story, this just might be the book for you.

Chris does a great job. every character has a voice that is theirs and just theirs
I enjoyed him in my earholes
