Summary

Survive the arena. Choose a Battle Bride. Master the lost art of cultivation. 

They called me a savage, then threw me into the their cruel arena.
Instead of bleeding out on the sand like they hoped, I used the power of my gifted core to rise. 

When I learned my enemies held a cure for the spreading plight of infertility, I knew why my gods had sent me. 

I am Dagon Haldorson, hunter and Hearthman of the northern shores of Enea.
I will grow in strength, form alliances, and win the hearts of gorgeous battle brides. 

And by uncovering the lost secrets of cultivation, we may go one step further. 

Together, we might change the world. 

(This book contains graphic violence, adult themes, and unconventional relationships.)

Good stuff

I’m usually not a fan of barbarian type MC’s since they tend to be more brawn than brains but I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised and glad I gave this one a chance. The MC is very much a warrior but isn’t an idiot, he is just out of his comfort zone but he is quick to learn. The ladies have their own unique stories and attitudes and aren’t there just to sleep with Mc.

Only a couple well done adult fun times and the rest are ftb type which is good since some books tend to overdo it. Narration is on point voices are all different and well done.

Looking forward to the next book.

Amazing series

Ok first of all, yes this is a harem book, but don’t be expecting the MC to start plowing everyone from page 2. This is a book of blood and bone that includes an aspect of harem. All of which is superbly done. I cannot stress enough how good this was.
Take a bad ass Viking and throw him in a gladiatorial ring where he can earn gold, power, and love, and that’s sorta what you got going on here. Excellent narration as well by both narrators. Give yourself a present and buy this book!

My First Audible

An honest warning, I am not trying to spoil this, however I found a few things to note.

The narrators are perfect as the technical standpoint goes. I believe about four words were not quite my opinion of the pronunciation, though considering the called for dialect this isn't a problem.

For the story, there are few fade to black moments, and when it is the author's style carries the story very well. Most intimate scenes are respectful, natural in this background and moderately passable if that is your liking with only relationships and a few plot movements being involved. For content I found it a pretty strong course, the few times interactions stumbled it felt designed for sake of a relatable cast. The balance of mortality and plot are good, more often crafted than filling.

You get a diverse cast, and while yes there are tons of heads popping up you do not lose the cast you need to know in the story. Endearingly woven together fates also, a trope yes but not a bad one. You can see a few things coming, though on a scale of a Coloring Book to a Murder Mystery for plot concealment and surprise I would say it does well on the Mystery side especially in a Fantasy setting.

Immersion and relatable win a nod, this story was exciting I found myself through the good length chapters to about chapter 17. They are short enough to enjoy progression with major ones building a bit more length so you know if you need to pause, though I am already planning for more books!

Enjoy!

The narrator makes the MC‘s voice sound like the Swedish Chef

I enjoyed the plot very much however, the narrator made the main characters voice sound like the Swedish Chef. It made him sound just stupid. If the author is going to keep this narrator I strongly suggest that he have a talk with him about the main characters voice.

This one is worth the credit.

Can't wait to start the next.

The narrator does a great job, though the headspace voices doesn't match the spoken it's an easy ignore.

***Potential Spoiler below***






I loved the last fight, I feel like I'd been avenged. The decisiveness, the quickens, the fear, I loved it. Oh and the wife with the kitchen knife... priceless.

Great 1st book. on to the next!!!

The beginning kind of reminded me of the movie "Gladiator" with Russel Crowe. MC's crew gets killed, he gets captured and forced to fight in an arena to the death. Its a good story, the mc is strong but flawed and awkward in some situations, making him relatable and cool to me. Narration/voice acting is good from both people.

I was totally sucked in

I loved it from start to finish and unable to stop .the narrators are true actors to turn a book into story where there's only 2 ways you stop listening 1 you pass out from exastion from the highs and lows or 2 the story end and get pissed because it complete.

The gasping!

Everything was going great, swimmingly even. Then, I noticed the sudden intake of breath that the mic picked up. It became...taxing. Luckily I only had a couple hours left so I powered through it. Hopefully it won't be in the second one.

An engaging listen

Narrators did a great job. If it wasn't for the fact that I needed to sleep, I would have finished this book in one session.
