Summary

After untold centuries of absence, the evil Ancients have returned. Their magic appears unstoppable and their hunger for conquest is insatiable. To protect the country of Nia, Duchess Nadea and Scholar Paug make a desperate journey to find a human legend: a man known to have destroyed these Ancient foes with a powerful army.

But legends can lie.

When Paug and Nadea revive their hero from sleep, his virtue is far from clear.

Is he really their savior or their destroyer?

Contains mature themes.

Good concept, a bit slow

I like the idea for the plot, and the first half of the book is pretty gripping. However as the book goes on there are a few chapters that are entirely pointless and distract from the story. Paug very quickly grew dull and I skipped several of his later chapters. The narrator has a good voice but a very robotic delivery. There is no effort made to make characters sound at all distinctive or different.

The story is good but the sex is not.

It's a good job I use headphones my family would cringe. Not sure why we spend as much time detailing every nibble and kiss as we do describing large battles. I guess it is a fresh approach. Narrator has a good voice but delivery needs some work. But will listen to the next volume skipping the grinding chapters.

Dont know what the fuss is about

This is a good book. Its exactly as its described. For people that say that the narrator is monotone, maybe check your speakers or headphones. Collins brings a lot of infelction and emotion to the story. For people that complain about the sex scenes, it says mature at the bottom and those scenes are few and far between. I will say that the sex is a little unimaginative and repetitive in nature, like the MC is a one trick pony. As for whats really important, the story is entertaining, the chatacters are fleshed out and 3 dimensional (FYI, the MC is pretty OP), and the action scenes are excellent.

obvious first attempt by the narrator.

narrator read the entire book with no pitch or accent change so it was difficult to follow. who's speaking Kaiher? Pog? oh no that's Nadia

The blandest narrator I've ever heard

I struggled to finish this. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't that this was poorly written, it was the narrator was one of the worst I've ever heard. I listen to many audible books each with their range of narrators, but this one set a new bar. this narrator has 0 inflections and 0 voices. many times I had to pause it or go back to remember who was talking, not to mention emotional scenes that lost all effect because everything was just the same. I would recommend buying and reading the book over this audio version.

mono tone

ok I've read a few reviews and i noticed that a good amount of people were complaining about the mono tone of the reader, and i partly agree he does put emotion into the characters but he doesn't change the tone of the vocies so it is hard to tell who is talking, example the big grizzly guard sounds the same as the book worm boy same as all the women sound the same

Game of Thrones Fanfiction

I felt as if this book was written by a teenager based off of the vernacular the characters were using. Also, there was a lot of sexually explicit content that felt very awkward to listen to. It definitely improved in the ending chapters in terms of wordplay and word structure.

Good but

OK I have 2 problems with the boo. that said number one is that voice actor didn't have enough range in this voice and characters, and was monotone for the majority of the book. number two is that we really didn't need the second point of view from Pawg after the first two times and just feels like filler due to his lack of significance.

barely legal sex scenes

seems like the writer has a barley legal fetish and is living out his desires for adult teens in his human hero. the battle scenes were fun, but listening to the hero have a hard on while trying to fill up on the two 18 year old princess hotties, no thanks.

ehh

liked the story till the very end. a great mysterious history that is revealed in little chunks that add up nicely. interesting characters. then rocks fall and everyone dies. of course they aren't actually dead it's just a cliff hanger hook to make you get the next book but that is awful writing. a book should be a contained story that fits into a larger story not an episode with to be continued as the final cut.

Good story marred by unnecessarily graphic sex

Good story but contains a couple completely unnecessarily graphic sex scenes that don't fit the genre at all and don't add to the story. They come across as completely gratuitous. Also, the narrator apparently only has a single voice. I've become used to Audible book narrators doing a good job of performing the different voices so I was quite disappointed with this book which is simply read aloud.
