Summary

[Faint-hearted listeners: Please read all the way through to the disclaimers at the end of the blurb, which contain spoilers regarding what types of strong content may be found in this adult fantasy audiobook.]

Before World War II could reach its conclusion, the world suffered what could only be defined as a cataclysm.

Now, Yosemite City stands as the gateway between two worlds. The empire of humanity to the west, and the wild wastes to the east.

Standing at the helm for Yosemite is Vince, a ranger turned city-state ruler. Supporting him in his endeavors is his inner circle.

Vince has begun to maneuver through the intricacies of ruling. At the same time he must balance his expanding foundation and fend off external threats.

Thankfully, every single citizen of Yosemite is united to the cause. To make their home, permanent. To dig out their place in the world and make a stand.

Things are starting to spiral out of control. Almost as quickly as he can put it all back together something else falls apart.

And with Yosemite rapidly rising into prominence, Vince finds that it really means just putting a bull's-eye on your back.

Warning: This novel contains adult themes and moral ambiguities. The main character is written as a real person in an apocalypse, and will not make choices that line up with social and cultural norms. This story contains a harem and is an adult fantasy novel.

I liked it. I am not proud of that fact.

It is down right harem fantasy biggest baddest guy macho pandering. That being said it speaks directly to the wanton area of my soul whixh the other aspects look at with disdain. I realize I read too much of these books when I recognize the main character dissing another character feom a different book by a different author. The darkness of my soul rejoices at these petty exchanges. I really need to add some class to my library.

If 16 yr old Tolkien wrote "50 Shades of Grey"

I'm no prude, but there is a TON of sex in this book. Mostly in a harem sort of way. Vince, the protagonist (we'll talk about him in a bit) has many wives and must acquire more in order to strengthen his "kingdom", of which he has to have monthly orgies with Driads to "seed" them. Interested yet?
Which, the sex aspect is fine; if its done for character development or to further the plot. However the sex in WWEE is borderline gratuitous and sprinkled in seemingly whenever the author got bored.
Vince the protagonist is a self inflicted martyr whose watery complaints get old after maybe chapter two. He's the king of a mixed socialist society but his major decisions are made for him by his skilled advisers (who are mostly women and fairly 2 dimensional). His only responsibility is really to impregnate his many wives and go meet with other factions to determine trade accords (but even this is defined by his Elven advisers), but he complains about it constantly. it gets tiring hearing the main character constantly bitch about his paltry role in anything. It essentially comes down to him saying "Oh, jeez. I'm so tired of killing people and fucking beautiful elves n shit" every 2 chapters or so.

the worst part? Vince even comes to a realization that "[He's] complaining about having to have sex with beautiful nymphs whose only drive is to please me..." but he gives a soggy excuse along the lines of "Oh well, I miss being a ranger and roughin' it".

Long story short, this reads like a 16 yr old Tolkien writing erotic fan fiction. The plot feels rushed and incomplete, there's little secondary character development and Vince performs like a bit of wet bread.

The voice acting was impressive though, and Andrea Parsneau is very talented.

Close, but...

I really wanted to like this book but it feels like its a romance novel and not the fantasy/survival story it advertises itself to be. I'm an adult and don't mind occasional sex scenes in what I read, watch, or listen to, but I don't want that to be the focus of the story. In this book it is the focus. Bums me out because I dig the world that Randi had built.
