Summary

Win the annual Conquer tournament and earn wealth and power without measure. Lose and you're dead. No pressure.

The game is Conquer, played for the king's amusement by the most notorious criminals and ambitious lordlings.

Aron Stone, street rat turned commander of the king's First Legion, doesn't have patience for pointless games. But when a series of unfortunate events earns him the king's ire, he is forced to participate.

Armed with a ragtag troop of dwarves, a beautiful but short-tempered sorceress, and a doting mistress, Aron must grow his forces, locate valuable weapons and magical artifacts, and win the day. Only complete victory will allow him to escape the arena and get his revenge.

Warning: This audiobook has medieval cursing including shite and arse, sex with tavern wenches, drunken dwarves, creatures that want to eat your head off, sex with multiple women on multiple occasions, dark-magic-wielding magicians, and more sex with various races, including faeries, elves, and others of the author's invention. Not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

Sigh

Really bro. Named the main character after yourself. Then include a scene with him and the kings harem followed by a smash cut to them leaving bow legged and satisfied.

Very enjoyable.

I liked the book. The only thing that didn't make sense was that the main driving event of the whole story didn't need to happen. *Spoiler. Why did the king feel he had to spy on his most trusted and accomplished commander? The only reason this story happens is because the king spies on the MC even though the MC has proven his loyalty again and again. If you ignore that part, the rest is a good listen. Looking forward to the next.

Can’t wait for book #2!

I really enjoyed the story although it was a bit predictable. It really reminded me of gladiator. As you follow the story you can’t help but cheer for one Aaron Stone to succeed. The performance of the readers were excellent. My only regret is listening to this book before the other books were released in the series. I would have love to continue on to book 2. Now I must wait....God’s speed commanders Aaron Stone. Until we meet again!

I Feel What I Am Supposed To

I really like this book because the author did a great job with the development of the protagonist and didn't rush it but also didn't make it boring. and even though this falls in the harem trope it doesn't not fail to get you in the feels for each one. I was saddened by the fairies plight. This book does a good job at mixing gamelit, midevil, and fantasy all into one.

Different

Good enough that I'll get the next. I liked that the author didn't jump the MC right into the game. Took time to develop him. Appreciated the lack of a solid cliffhanger.

It feels like it was written by a 16 year old.

Most of the sex scenes felt random. The MC is basically this big manly man that gets all the women inside a predictable story. I'm pretty sure most readers here aren't really invested in the characters and I'm wondering why this series is getting more than 3 stars

Better then average but can't recommend

Many books in this genre the MC is hard to like. They are either naive on the ways of women or a total A**. In this book however the MC is self confident with the ability to empathize. One of my main issues with the MC is his inability to do for himself. He puts all above himself which is just not realistic, especially given the situation he finds himself in. There has to be a balance! However when so many depends on you their needs to be a shift. Chances are if the MC dies or is unsuccessful in his mission many will die if not the extermination of entire species. The other issue I have with the MC is how long he uses his gnorance on the game he is forced to play on actually playing the game. By the end of this book he never really starts playing.

With all that said sadly I can't recommend this series since there is no series as of yet. This is book one but almost 2.5 years later there still is no book two. Even if this becomes a series 2+ years in-between books makes it's a No for me. Which is sad given I believe it's one of the more realistic written books in the genere.
