Summary

The Beginning After the End: Publisher's Pack contains books 1 and 2 of The Beginning After the End series.

Early Years, book 1:

I never believed in the whole “light at the end of the tunnel” folly where people, after having a near-death experience, would startle awake in a cold sweat exclaiming, “I saw the light!” But there I was, in this so-called “tunnel” facing a glaring light, when the last thing I remembered was sleeping in my room - the royal bedchamber, as others called it. Had I died? If so, how?

King Grey once benefited from unrivaled strength, wealth, and prestige in a world governed by martial ability but now finds himself reborn in a society dominated by magic. Given a second chance at life, the once-king strives to understand his role in this new world and the purpose of his reincarnation while correcting the mistakes of his past.

Early Years, book 2:

King Grey has unrivaled strength, wealth, and prestige in world governed through martial ability. However, solitude lingers closely behind those with great power. Beneath the glamorous exterior of a powerful king lurks the shell of man, devoid of purpose and will.

Reincarnated into a new world filled with magic and monsters, the king has a second chance to relive his life. Correcting the mistakes of his past will not be his only challenge, however. Underneath the peace and prosperity of the new world is an undercurrent threatening to destroy everything he has worked for, questioning his role and reason for being born again.

isekai, litrpg, cultivating and more. amazing!

I have listened to hundreds of audio books and never left a review, this book is simply outstanding. The story, the characters and world building draw you in. The narrator does an excellent job at bringing the characters to life and making you feel for them. I cannot recommend this book enough.

I love this story!

I first came across this story when I happened to see the web comic. I loved the comic, but the book is even better. I like the pacing of the story, it's never slow, but it's not action at every turn either. I can't wait for the next one to be released.

Let's hear it for intelligent main characters!

Can we have more? Don't get me wrong, I do not want MCs who know everything. I just want them to be NOT stupid. And more female supporting characters who are not all swooning and fainting all over the place.
This was an excellent book. I tried hard not to consume it all at once but I could not stop listening. I wanted action, adventure, intrigue, humor, endearment... and this delivered it all in spades.
My only gripe is the time jumps, but that is very minor. Not everyone wants to get bogged down in the weeds with the 'slice of life' genre. But if any character could enthrall you with the day to day minutia it would be this guy; He would be calculating optimal mana densities and plotting to overthrow the royal family while flossing...
Please buy and share. This is well worth your time and credit.

I love every second of this book! I need more!

I love every second of this book, the narration was amazing, but i had to slow it down to 90% to fully enjoy and digest the information.

i love the MC's progression, his thoughts on life, training, and his family. it was wholesome, fantastic, funny, and brought tears to my eyes on some occasions. He's just a guy living a new life, trying to protect his family.

I read the manga, and was pleasantly surprised on how much detail was missed on the manga. The book goes on to detail everything i have missed and much more. I also love the fact that there are no harem elements anywhere in this book like other books like this (manga, fantasy, or litrpg books).

I don't know what more to say, but this book is absolutely amazing and i can't wait for the next installments. Please! let me have some more!

WOW!

YOU WILL REGRET NOT GETTING THIS BOOK! This book hit every point I usually look for in an overpowered mc. Great detail and story flows. Only disappointment is that I have to wait for the next books come out!

Recommend 100% worth a credit!

Do you like reincarnation books? Do you like magic /martial arts books? If yes then this book is for you.

It knows what it wants to be and does it amazingly good.

Hope book 3 and 4 won't take a long time to arrive on audible.

10/10 from me so far.
