Publisher's Summary

Coming of age is hard enough when you don't have to face monsters....

When your family ends up stranded in a magical world, you don't have much choice.  

Jackson's class as an Ironwood Monk puts him right in the front line. He gets stronger the more he gets hit and can pass that on to the rest of the team. That is if he can get his mom to actually let him fight.  

No one, least of all Jackson, fully understands the importance he holds for his family's future or that of all Talos. He will have to navigate challenges both in dungeons and the halls of power if he is to find a new home.  

The next LitRPG series from the Amazon best-selling author of Life in Exile, Sean Oswald, is here. It’s perfect for fans of Dakota Krout, Luke Chmilenko, and Troy Osgood.  

About the series: This LitRPG is set in the world of Eloria, which features character sheets, stats, spell descriptions, loot drops, and XP but is not in a game. It is set in the same universe as Sean Oswald's best-selling Life in Exile series but can be listened to alone as its own story arc.

The is one of the best LITRPG.

I truly enjoyed the new edition to the Nelson's story. Please continue to write positive uplifting family stories, and I will continue to purchase them.
I liked the new character which he introduced, and the expansion of Sarah's character's build. I like the way the characters level up with which helps the story progress. My only complaint is there are to many stats sheets referenced.

Great new Litrpg

Great listen, different take on not starting from the very start of the families journey however I found myself not all that lost in the story with alot of the context provided in the world and situations that were going on. Would I have liked to hear their start? yes. however I also enjoyed that alot more action that didn't involve the family killing boars in the woods and skipped mostly to large fights with lots of abilities and skill points. hope this turns into a few books so we can get a complete picture.

A little too much time describing character sheets

I love this series and I love this book. The narrator is excellent. The only drawback for me is the time spent on describing each persons character sheet. I feel that is burdensome in an audiobook.

good book, better if you've read the first 4

I'm not sure why the author decided to present this as the beginning of a series. there are 4 other books that preceded it, all of which can be had as a publishers pack for 1 credit. this is a good book but has LOTS of POV's which can make it seem like a bit of a slog.

it all makes more sense if you've listened to the previous books first. I wouldn't recommend trying to jump into the series with this one

fun family fantasy litRPG

I enjoyed this book. The focus on the family was a new take and I found myself wanting to learn more and more about the Nelson's. The book flowed well and I enjoyed the world building and magic system. Character sheets being used but not being in a game was awesome. If you enjoy LitRPGs than this is a good one too check out, especially with the focus on a whole family rather than a single character.

New story Arc

I'm so glad to see this author continued with this story with another arc. There were too many unanswered questions and these characters felt real to me, flaws and all. Bring in the next book!

Unwittingly Good!

Another great instalment in The Watcher series! Looking forward to more in this well written and plotted series! Too many thoughts and possibilities cloud my brain to write succinctly!
