Summary

Not all heroes go to heaven.

Terrence Mack was born poor, grew up tough, and died hard. Waking up in a sea cave with nothing but the clothes on his back and a new bullet scar was enough to convince him that wherever his death had brought him, it wasn't paradise.

His new world quickly proves to be a place of danger, magic, monsters, and - for Terry at least - women.

Known on Celestine as a template, Terry's genes are key to the survival of the eldritch races. But the fiercely competitive eldritch don't typically leave their lovers alive long, and aren't accustomed to taking 'no' for an answer.

The average life expectancy of a template on Celestine? Three days.

A city boy with no survival skills to speak of, Terry sets out in a desperate bid to gather allies. With the help of a lonely dryad, a mixed-up minotress, and a misguided party of dungeon delvers, he must be brave, cunning, and good with the ladies to have any hope of living through the month.

All the while an ancient evil bent on the destruction of Celestine exists in the north, and templates are the key to its southern expansion....

Warning: This book does not pan to waving curtains and fade to black. Those uninterested or under the age of 18 are strongly warned of explicit content.

Sit down! And have some food Ready!

This Book Is Going To Take You On One Hell Of Ride! From beginning to End! I mean, the first five minutes had me sitting up in my seat, putting the tv on mute and staring up at the ceiling as the MC, his situation, his feelings and his experience had me literally visualising exactly what was going on! This book! This Story! This imaginative movie! Had my head spinning! Its like... ...street fighter meets wonder land meets dungeon diving meets harem with a real world feel, if you had just woken up in a strange place with GREAT SELF PRESERVATION SKILLS! lol with no outdoor skills lol. I can not wait to buy the next book! SH*T just got real in the end and I have a feeling, a scary feeling, that although the struggle is real already, its about to get really real!

Great story with a great narrator

Terry is a deeply scared man who will sacrifice anything to help his family and loved ones. Unlike most harem stories each character possess fears and goals and feel real. Tess Irondale was just icing on top of a very suculent cake.
Hoping we get the other books

So happy to see this on Audible!!

I can't describe how elated I was to see this available as an Audible.

In a review sense for the author, the story is well paced and highly enjoyable. The characters had also been well written and had a life all of their own. I will be looking forward to adding the next instead to my ever growing library.

Now for the Narrator, I so hope you continue narrating this series. Great job and I look forward to hearing other series you've narrated.

Harem, Monstergirls, and an Interesting Story

If you like harem stories and monstergirls and great sex scenes then this is the book for you.

This book was so good I bought the second one in the series before I had even finished the first. I will be counting the days till the second book is released as an audiobook.

I had my doubts at first cannot recommend this book more great narrator stories awesome yes there is sex so if you're one of those prissy little fraidy cats who can't handle story what has sex in it don't get it especially like and he goes into the dungeon it deals with one of my favorite stories from Greek myths once again spend your credit on this book cannot wait for the next one

Unexpectedly superb

I honestly have zero expectations for what I consider books near the end of the mainstream "litrpg" genre, perhaps this book doesn't fit in that category, but nonetheless that's how I came upon this book. It was spectacular, and it is rare that I binge on books here, and even rarer to deem a book review worthy. This was so well done that it deserves at least a paragraph or two.

First off the story is excellent, believe it. Simple MC,while NOT a total and utter helpless fool. Decisive and not OP imo. Didn't even realize this was a "harem" genre novel when I purchased it, just chose a book with good reviews on my recommended list... Honestly I think the story is great, and Tess Irondale is one of my new favorite narrators. This deserves a 5/5 and you will not regret giving this a listen.
