Summary

The afterlife isn't always what you think....

A loving father of three children, Albert lived a life of few regrets. He served his country far from home. He outlived his soul mate. He died alone.

However, his assumptions about a peaceful eternity, reunited with his wife, are thrown out the window when a meddling god digs his fingers into Albert's afterlife.

The positive? He will have a chance to see his wife again.

The negative? He has to survive the dangers of the legendary World Tree for the next 300 years. He's been reincarnated into a world full of magical evolutions, monstrous deer, sassy 10-year-old elves, and untold hidden dangers. It won't be easy, but if life has taught Albert anything it's this: If something is worth having, it's worth fighting for. And he intends to fight.

A good read.

navigation was good, story was good and I honestly hope there is actually a sequel to it. it was also nice to see a different perspective from the whole travel to A Different World trope.

Great story, not suitable for kids though.

Listened through it in a day, and it is a decent story. It is regretable that it doesn't have enough antagonists whom actually threatens the mc, and thus the plot, seems to be driven by curiosity about evolutions. World building has a lot of concepts, names, places and content derived from the Asgardian pantheon, and the twists on the personas help round off the mysteries of a person by having them similar to thir name sharing mythical being. Ending is a bit vague, and can both be seen as rounding off the book, and setting up for another. I recomend for people 16+ who like Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Game, Other World story tags.

A tad let down

The concept is awesome. Light Novelish, I admit. Sometimes felt like lazy writing though.

A really nice take on the genre

For once in one of these types of books I actually like the protagonist, I had a fair bit of fun listening to this and I really hope it gets a sequel

A great listen

Thoroughly enjoyed this book with its twist on seeing the story of evolution in a LitRPG from the perspective of a man turned monster. Loved the narrative of the story and the voice acting complimented it perfectly. Would highly recommend

Very entertaining

The story is captivating and constantly keeps you entertained. From the cradle series, I’ve found that I love listening to Travis Baldree’s voice. He has his way of adding emotion and texture to the characters; bringing them to life. This is a laid back story mostly meant to pass the time; nonetheless, it was very much worth the listen.

A need to buy for LITrpg fans!

It is simple if you like a reincarnation story, this is the book for you. If you like GameLit or LITrpg this is a story for you. If you like the sound of Travis Baldree's dulcet tones then HECK YEAH you need to get it!

Made me laugh

The humor was right up my alley. This is a promising start in a new series. The stats are kept simple and I liked that. Likable characters, epic adventures, good humor and good narration. What more can you want?

LOVED IT!

As usual with Travis Baldree, excellent performance. He never fails to make a book shine. Kenneth Arant is an excellent author and I look forward to book 2. This first book is the purest example of a LIT-RPG/Evolution book. I loved every moment.

Amazing!

This was a joy to listen to! I've read the book previously and loved it so I thought I'd see how the audiobook was. Travis just brought the story to life and I'm so glad I picked it up!

Ok book, great performance

This book was a struggle. Read if you dare but not there are some issues which I can't help but say really hurt the book. Without giving too much away.. The main character is defiantly an asshole and you may get tired of this behavior /very/ swiftly. When he's with other characters it's a lot more tolerable but alone you really begin to recognize it. There are also some badly handled themes in this book. Sexual assault is dusted over faster than a piece of lint on a computer screen (why even have it at all?) good luck reading this book, the things that save it are the world concept, performance of the reader, and side characters.

Pure garbage

Because the narrator is so talented it may take a bit before realizing this book is shit.
