Publisher's Summary

Born a monster. Destined to be a hero. Half-orc. Half-human. All hero.

Lugor is a half-orc, and in his world, that's a very dangerous thing to be. He dreams of becoming an adventurer, slaying monsters and delving into dungeons. Unfortunately for him, one cut to his skin could reveal his secret. 

He's forced to spend his days in his small village, working at the smithy and keeping his head down. But when his world is turned upside down in a monster attack on his village, Lugor seeks training at the Adventurer Academy, where he can learn to become the champion that he was born to be. It won't be easy, especially whilst contending against an arrogant mage who is determined to see him fail. 

With a steadfast dwarven elementalist and a sarcastic dark-elf necromancer by his side, Lugor sets out to prove that just because he's half-orc doesn't mean he can't be a hero.

This story includes the following:

  • Half-monster protagonist
  • Game mechanics in a fantasy world
  • Sword and board protagonist
  • Crafting abilities like enchantment and blacksmithing

An okay book.

Firstly, I would say this book is at least worth a read or listen. Secondly though, this book has a lot of issues which surprised me due to the fact it has a 4.4/5 on Amazon..

To be blunt, the humor is lackluster, almost all the scenes lack detail and depth, a lot of characters are just faces with little detail and not much behind them, the MC is a huge Mary Sue for sure, it is most definitely a YA novel and will be fine for many young readers but it definitely isn't a 4.4/5 kind of book. A final thing, the narrators are good but there are a few middling voices I would've rather had them reuse a voice with some slight tweaks than actually use in the book.

I'm almost near the end of the book but I don't really feel the urge to finish this book which is telling. I would range this in the 3.0-3.5 range at most. As I said in the beginning though, the book is worth a listen as it could appeal to you especially if you are a younger reader.

YA litrpg, solid 4 stars.

This book reminds me a lot of Harry Potter. That isn't a bad thing, mostly because I love HP. What annoyed me about this book was the constant pop-culture references. They added nothing to the story and only severed to make the reader go, "Hey! I got that reference." It makes me feel like the writer doesn't think they can stand on their own.
The other thing I could do without was the scraping metal sound effect they used to chapter transitions. It was way to loud and very unpleasant to hear.
Otherwise the story was solid and narration was great.

Been done before.

If you want a safe book that gives you everything you expect from a book called "Adventurer's Academy" and nothing more then this is it. Honestly I have yet to read a good Academy book. I mean that as in the Title. Vampire Academy and such. It is all just too easy. How he met his friends was just so lazy. There is basically no punishment outside of class. You basically get no interesting clas moments that explain the world and it's function. Also the crafting. What is with these level 5 smiths making these powerful equipment peaces and weapons. Why is there barely enough people to fill a class room the only people going to school here? Other then ten charaters there is a wash of gray faces at this school. Are there other academies and that is why attendance is low? I mean how small is this world dude? No exploration of the city and it's night life after they get to the school. Could have been good like Dante's Immortality or Coiling Dragon but this is it.

Cosmic Intervention lead me to this book

At the time of this review I haven’t finished the book, but what lead me to this book makes me believe I was supposed to find it. Without situations I would have never know about this, but it’s just too perfect. This is a great read. I highly recommend.

Not the best perfomances.

The book and story it self its alright, but my biggest isses is the narrator itself. The voice acting was "good" at it's best but some character didnt felt right, didnt sound like you would expected to sound they sounded cjildish at time and some voices dint fit their particular character.
The book it self felt very empty in certain scenarios. For example: the school felt empty they never gave any background escenarios it felt like they and their class where the only students in whole school.

Minor complaint

My only complaint is that every once in a while a word is cut off, or the end of the word anyway. Don’t know if it’s from audible or a formatting issue or what it could be. Just a little annoying but still enjoyed the story. Will be starting the second book soon.

Fantastic

The story was great, but the performance was on another level. Greatly enjoyed! Can't wait to get started the next book and will look out for other series narrated by them

I liked it

It hits most of the tropes. This isn't a bad thing in my eyes tough. They are tropes for a reason. Good narration.

a beautiful adventure

I really enjoyed the pace of this story. there are many twists and turns to keep you listening. the narrators clearly know what they are doing and I like that there is a clear male and female narrator instead of 1 that tries to do all the voices.

Brilliant! A must read!

Amazing! Great pace to the story. Characters well rounded but not OP and avoids typecasting based on race. Some really funny laugh out loud moments. I'm super excited for book 2, just take my money now! Well written and fantastically read.

Cracking Tale

A very good story and if sometimes a bit obvious there is some great humour and the use of SBT does wonders for this as the audio is very good .
Being the anti-hero type is quite good and i loved the supporting cast and skills being used and the additional crafting element is good.
The narration helped this along from 4 to 5 stars although my biggest gripe is the chapter end/ stars as the sound effect can be a little loud and sometimes grating .
I requested this audio and have decided to leave my thoughts on this.

Could not stop listening

I loved this book. I loved it so much I got it in audio and purchased the ebooks. The story grips you from the start and I like that it's from a different perspective than you usually get in this genre.

Really well performed.
