Summary

If you could turn back the clock and fix all the mistakes you ever made, would you? 

From the author of the award-winning Web-novel Reborn: Evolving from Nothing comes the tale of Micheal Care, a swordsman that could only be considered a middling warrior in Humanity's Last Army. 

Micheal's answer to that question would be quite simple. 

Yes. A million times yes. 

Humanity has fallen, killed by stronger races of beings after being warped away to a new reality, the mystical Seven Layers. 

Humanity's goal had been simple. Make it through all Seven Layers and reach Heaven. 

Humanity failed. 

Humanity died. 

Micheal Care's memories have been transported back into his past self thanks to a magical Artifact he found by chance. 

He is no chosen savior. He is no divinely picked hero. 

Can he change the future? Can he catch up to the mightiest warriors of humanity and surpass them? 

Listen and find out.

Repetitive oversplaining...

I liked seeing this concept in book form instead of as an anime.
But the over explaining of every little detail, even things that had already been explained, got annoying during the first few hours.

Had potential. Did not reach.

First the narration was very good!
Nice pace, good injection of feeling during the important moments. All in all, nicely done.

The book has some pretty good ideas that give you an early idea of how further books might progress, but it's the cringe that will stop me from wanting to pick up book 2.

I never really got why each scene seems to be in a skyscraper. Perhaps there was an explanation at some stage, but I'd switched off by that point.

Our main character is an expert in all things and not through any legitimate means, but simply because he thought he might need to be at some point. I mean, what?
He can sword chop bullets in mid flight. And not through some in game ability, but because he had 'planned out' the battle perfectly before hand. Again, what?

Unfortunately the book is full of this unrealistic, unexplained and very lazy cringe.

Love the concept, good performance, unfortunate wr

I truly enjoyed the story and the performance is admirable. Unfortunately the author should have worked more on the cleaning, he loves repeating phrases and including constant redundant explanations, enough that it occasionally happens every few sentences. This, sadly, regularly ruins the flow.

This was fun. Pure and simple.

I would actually give this book 4 starts but I want this series to succeed and get noticed in the Audible algorithm. If you like LitRPG's, this is fantastic. MC progress is fast and cool. Can't wait for the next one.

Interesting premise.

I like the idea of this book a lot with the reborn idea. Whiles this is a LITRPG and you always get reborn in someway. It's about being reborn in the same world just in the past once more and going though the same thing as the first time. However this time he's armed with the knowledge from his first run. How much easier is it when you go back and replay a video game story. Even when you incease the difficultie you will been it faster with higher scores. This is the core of this book. No op powers given to him, just him knowing what is op and how to min max, who is worth knowing and who to save/recruit.
For a first book i still felt like i was learning about the world and intersted in the world building to. Overall i liked the story ark if you have a free credit then give it a go. I'm looking forward to the second book

by far top tier, but worrying progression

first.
no girl voice (which I oldy like compared to a weird one like in all Dakota krout)

possibly too good, may make you read the next ones if next one hasn't come out

But worrying as it's plot is not deviating enough from the normal plot.

It is not similar enough to tower of heaven for unoriginality but it follows a 'safe structure'

And has a relative amount of "deus ex 'oh I member'" (saying the mc remembers something from past that gives him advantage)

But because it has yet to be as creative as it could or will there is a fear it may not hold up in future books. (when the mc memories become obsolete)

both mc's seem awesome and original in their characters though.

Great Story, Amazing voice acting

I've read quite a few of these "Hero goes back in time to save the world" type of books. That being said, this is one of the most action packed and interesting iterations I've ever listened to.

PRO's
The intelligence and planning ability of the hero is understandable as he's essentially done this before and i cant help but get excited to see how he plans to overcome every new obstacle that comes his way.

The main antagonist of this volume actually acts in a way that you would expect an intelligent but immoral character to behave.

The action scenes are well designed and definitely gets my blood pumping.

I cant stress this enough but THE VOICE ACTING WAS AMAZING. Adam Stubbs manages to portray the sheer strength and experience of the character with every sentence he utters.

CON's
Would like to see the protagonist interact with broader range of characters in consequent novels.

This was too short (If i was being honest, i'm only complaining about this because i enjoyed it so much)

Awesome.

OK. didn't know if i was going to waste my token here but im happy to report I didn't. The story was great and at first I didn't think i was going to like the narrator I ended up falling in love. Waiting for more.

I am reborn from reading this book

I’m gonna tell ya, this book almost threw me into a right anxious fit. Basically the first chapter is practically identical Cameron Milan’s Tower of Heaven novel. So close it is scary; as in I was ready to make accusations of plagiarism, but I kept listening. The book quickly differentiated itself from Tower of Heaven and stood on its own. So much that I am pressed to say that it might be a little bit better flow wise. The MC was interesting and he was playing the “I know the future card” very close to the vest.

As I said, it starts off in the vein Towers of heaven but then neatly shifts into a book of its own. The book is well paced, smartly written, has some cool progression powers and is draped in an appropriately apocalyptic setting. I didn’t even feel like the MC was over powered, and was happy when he retained skills that he’d trained for when the clock was reset. What could have come across as imbalanced simply played well with the character and the story. He was hardcore and a font of knowledge that simply gave him an edge.

Stubbs really narrates well, and manages to convey everything that Kerr put into the story, plus a little more, I think. It is that extra bit that makes a good narrator stand out. Personally, I think Stubbs shines.

Final score 8.3 stars. I honestly had no expectations going in, was angry when I thought it was a Tower of Heaven Rip-off, and eventually came to embrace the MC, the setting, and the story. I cannot wait for more.

Fantastic

Really enjoyed this book. If you like “The Ten Realms” series this has the same concept. Excited for the rest of the series to be released.

Great Story

The story is amazing, the character is a little OP (but not too the point that the story suffers), the world building is original and very satisfying, an overall I really enjoyed the character development.

I only have one complaint. Please, for the love of god, cut down on all the narrative expositions. I'm still giving this book 5 stars because the background info was enjoyable to listen too but I dont think there is more then a 10 min break between expositions. I understand that some of the expos are necessary but I dont need to know every small detail.
