you know a haram fantasy adventure is bad when the most enjoyable part is before he meets any girls or any fantasy aspects
the setup is pretty good, solder, ancient ruin, some pop culture references
then we get to the new world where everyone is a badly written NPC from a 90s PS1 game
the main love/sex intrest may as well be a cardboard cutout, literally her whole and only role is to say "your so smart and handsome ken-jewel" (this is about 80% of her dialogue) with a little "lets make an army of monster babies ken-jewel"
the sex is bad, the writing for any female character is bad (not quite as bad as the main female character but still pretty bad)
and the story is pretty much a dude making a log cabin, that's so well made that it holds of a 200 strong raiding party of goblins.
i would say some of this might be a spoiler but there honestly isn't anything to spoil, save your credit there are a lot more better books in the dirty LitRPG genre (pretty much anything)

Gun Meister Online is a recently released virtual-reality combat simulator. Players assume the role of a Meister; fighting in matches and ranking up into higher divisions. Within the game, weapons take on human shape. These NPC's use a new Dynamic Distributed Personality System recently implemented, and many are excited by how life-like the AI characters are becoming. Charlie has only just begun to play, and he struggles to grow as a Meister. At the same time, he starts to take charge of his real-life outside.

amazing performance from the cast, i've often been against dramatisation but i genuinely enjoyed in in this book
the plot is pretty good and with a fair amount of depth
this is set out very much like a anime, if you enjoy ecchi anime or guns (there a lot of in depth talk about different guns which isn't my cup of tea but it wasn't overpowering unlike some books) then this is a book for you.
there is alot of sex right out of the door, its not the best written ive ever found but is very far from the worse.
overall i really enjoyed the book and recommend it to anyone that enjoys a little filth wither there LitRPGs
this is definitely one of the stronger books in the genera and i'm eagerly awaiting anymore in the series

good reader, good story but whoever edited the book put it lots of bad connection thud sounds (about 45 a minute (I counted) this is much more common is some chapter s than other (one had 12 thumps in 8 seconds) other don't have any for an entire chapter ( and no it's not my device it's the recording I checked on different devices and the thuds are in the same places). also the cutting of recording is really badly done (between one recording session and the next. (timings off, volume, quality of sound is different and finally those really really anoying horns randomly throughout the book. (but only at some chapter boundaries)
now these issue have appeared in previous books of this series but this one has been particularly bad.
sort it out audible

so good book, excellent reader, terrible editing

Titan was one of the nation's most loved and respected Heroes, until an infidelity scandal tore his image and family apart. After decades spent out of the limelight, Owen Daniels has decided to take up the mantle of Titan once again to try and make amends for his years away. Unfortunately, the Titan Scandal is still common knowledge, and no Hero team wants such a polarizing figure.

i really liked this foray into the powereds world it give a lot more depth and more interesting look into the politic of the world... and a character with the best power ever (i means no holds barred the best ever conceived anywhere). do not listen to this in a library as the are several laugh out loud moment and you get really odd looks and asked to leave :)

Gifted with meta-human powers, Tori Rivas kept away from the limelight, preferring to work as a thief in the shadows. But when she's captured trying to rob a vault that belongs to a secret guild of villains, she's offered a hard choice: prove she has what it takes to join them or be eliminated. Apprenticed to one of the world's most powerful (and supposedly dead) villains, she is thrust into a strange world where the lines that divide superheroes and criminals are more complex than they seem.

after listening to drew hays other books (which where quite good) i was expecting the modula and episodic writing from his web series powereds, but i was happily surprised. this felt a lot more cohesive than his other works.

the story is excellent the characters relatable and the powers unique and interesting. for me it hits the perfect mix of light heartedness and large epic superheroes/villains both with dark motives.

the performances was well done and very immersive and i hope if the series is continued that Amy Landon will continue to narrate.

Minalan gave up a promising career as a professional warmage to live the quiet life of a village spellmonger in the remote mountain valley of Boval. It was a peaceful, beautiful little fief, far from the dangerous feudal petty squabbles of the Five Duchies, on the world of Callidore. There were cows. Lots of cows. And cheese. For six months things went well: He found a quaint little shop, he befriended the local lord, the village folk loved him, he found a sharp young apprentice to help out, and, best yet, he met a comely young widow with the prettiest eyes.

Where does Spellmonger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

its not quite brandon sanderson or brent week but it not far off.

What did you like best about this story?

that it took a small perspective on a major world event. you see all the cogs of the world moving and the systems that behind the scene only in passing while bring the main character up to play on the next stage/battle in the next book

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

not a great book to turn into a movie but. it reminds me a little of the battle of helms deep and the siege of gondor in LOTR

Any additional comments?

audible i know you're quite bad at this at time but please make the rest of the series available for uk purchase as i hate ripping cds.

Books 1, 2, and the prequel novella of the Fate's Forsaken series. The series follows the adventures of Kael: a young man who is thrust from his home in the Unforgivable Mountains and onto a hero's path. The journey is long, the battles are fierce - nearly all of his companions are outlaws. And Kael's rotten bad luck seems to make everything worse. This is his story.

this is a ok Young adult book(and series) its got the feel of similar books of the genre. if you liked eragon and the Inheritance Cycle series you'll enjoy this (about the same but with pirates) a solid if bland magic system and a basic world ruled by evil ruler. if you enjoy books with either a wide array of fleshed out characters or a hero who isn't amazing and instantly a master at everything he tries you make struggle with this book/series.
