From the world of The Godling Chronicles.

Filled with confidence and no small measure of arrogance, young Lee Starfinder, along with Millet Gristall, set off on their very first adventure.

    "Adventure into Madness"

    An enjoyable escape from sanity. The story is of greed and how it can give and take. Also how standing firm about what you want, is always wise.

    "Do I, don't I."

    As this was just a taster I'm unsure if I like the story/ series and will need to read a full book to be sure how I feel. So I'm sitting on the fence and offering no option as yet.

    Story
    "Intriguing appetiser to what can become an epic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I enjoyed the story and felt the description had me concocting the imagery of the scenes in my head.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think all the characters were quite balanced. Each had a strength and a weakness and I couldn't really enjoy one more than another.


    What does Derek Perkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The arrogance of the Lee. The humble wisdom of Millet. The brutality of Jalil. He brought those characters out.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The confrontation and realisation of fate between Lee and the Blackness.


    Any additional comments?

    There were points in the plot that had me think whether it was likely to have happened or whether it was just a Ex Machina for the story. Also it was a slight dampener to have two separate stories of the of the short story and the prologue preview to have very similar scenes of old guardian failing to protect some artefact. I wonder if repetition is used more often in his other stories.

    "Meh"

    This was free on Audible, and I’m pretty glad that it was. The plot was alright, though the characters were underdeveloped and the narrator was completely the wrong choice for the character, age wise. It just didn’t pull me in, and it doesn’t make me want to listen to the rest of the series.

    Story
    "Another Mythical Land of Men and Demigods..."

    Another Mythical Land of Men and Demigods... But enjoyable nonetheless. Story follows a linear path and the occasional action scene lacks the punch you're seeking. But the characters and settings are vividly described. Great narration too.

    Story
    "Modesitt, Feist or Eddings"

    These Godling novels kept coming out and I wondered. I had not heard of Brian D. Anderson and then I saw this free prequel. This is a great way to discover what you may or may not like. It didn't do it for me, but for you die hard fantasy fans it might. This could be compared to L.E. Modesitt Jr., Raymond Feist or David Eddings.

    "Pleasantly Surprised"

    I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed this book as well as the narration. I kept yelling at one of the main characters because he was acting like a childish peacock but by the end I liked him a little better.

    Good, short, story.

    Story
    "Enjoyed"

    The age-old battle between good and evil when good sometimes appears evil and evil sometimes appears good. Making friends of those who were once mere acquaintances and/or seeming enemies. It gets better and better.
    There are certain philosophical ideas introduced. One of my favorites is the way many view those they feel are different from themselves, treating them negatively; but when one they feel is like themselves, treat in a positive manner unless some affection or interest is shown toward the "others" deemed unworthy.
    Good comedic points are peppered throughout. Ending with a clear resolution, but the addition of the teaser for the next chapters leaves one thirsty enough to grab the next book.
    Very well done!
