Publisher's Summary

Dao Divinity! I continue blending cultivation and fantasy with my latest series. Welcome to a fantasy world where the progressive magic system follows the cultivation concept of Dao.

Dar’s life was simple, until a driving accident brings him to a new world filled with magic and creatures from fantasy.

He has a fresh chance in a new world, but not everything is peaceful in Granterra. Luckily, with an enchanted body and a legendary ability to grow his magic, Dar has an advantage in cultivating his Dao that no one else does. He’ll have to embrace his newfound powers to their fullest if he’s intent coming out ahead.

Good for him that the two best ways to expand his magic are by killing his enemies and loving on his women. Given the stunning witch and dryad on his side, it’s not hard to do both.

Good story, bad MC.

The story and world are interesting but the book is hampered by a pretty stupid and unbelievably naive MC. "Huh, this wine has a strange aftertaste, better wash it down with more wine!" Sigh...

This MC is supposed to we a worldly man who has traveled around from place to place and pretty much immediately can suss out if a character is up to no good. And even after being warned about a certain character, he still stupidly, let's his guard down and gets drugged and captured.

Why not insist on one of your Dao companions joining for dinner or even one of your servents. He knew she was going to try and seduce him so why not put the breaks on that immediately. Or just decline the invitation and say you'll do dinner the next day so they can leave before that. He didn't want to go to the dinner so don't go. But no, there had to be some stupid reason for him to get captured.

The Narration is fine for the most part but when she does the MC's inner monologue, it's for some reason done with a deep voice that is annoying. What's worse is that the MC's speaking voice is nothing like that. Either just read the inner thoughts normally in your own voice or do the MC's normal voice.
Men don't think in a deep baritone.

Anoying narration

The story itself was good, not gonna lie, but the way that the narrator speaks with this anoying, almost comical deep voice just made this unbearably annoying to listen to. The voices that she did for the actual characters were great, but her "narrator" voice ruined the few chapters I did listen too. This is gonna a be the first audio book I ever return.

Narrator is Awful

So the narrator does well on character voices and such. It's the general narration she does poorly on. For some reason she had this weird depth she tries to add in her narrating that is just awful. What is worse is she slips into a normal reading of the story at times and actually sounds good them she realizes she's not doing a voice and slips back into the garbage haughty depth she was doing.

Fix Mc

Mc is Dumb He drinks extra of a funny tasting wine to wash down the funny taste and other characters tell him things and then he seems to forget them and have them tell him again for him to catch up give them a tree of knowledge so he can be brought up to speed

great book but....

There is noticeable feedback in a bunch of parts of the narration. With that being said fantastic narrator and story. Hope to see more with a bit better quality.

Pretty good

Overall this was a good book. It was a slow burn on some parts when it come to the MC concept of morals and adjusting to the world he is in now. The only thing that really upset me was the MC reluctant to kill humans when they are trying to kill him.

crap

the story just plows on not giving no information about anything or anyone as far as i can tell its a harem style story with a mindless, spinless Mc that does everything he's told I'm sick of crap stories where every woman the MC meets he fucks i couldn't get past the first few chapters Bruce Sentar or whatever his name is im sure he doesn't want anyone to know he writes this crap he needs to either go back to school or read alot more books to learn to write

not his best work

The story itself wasn't bad but it was very predictable and just wasn't very well written. You can tell everything in the story didn't get much thought into it. It seems like a very rushed story just to get the book out.

Issues with performance

Solid story with great characters and a griping finalae however...
There are odd gaps between phases and lines of dialogue that really disrupt the flow. It also feels like the narrator is spreaking prose in the masculine voice even though its unnecessary for third person although its hard to be sure.
The narrator does do a good job differentiating charcters in the book however.

Ok but narrator is a little annoying

I wish they would keep the protagonist's accent consistent he sometimes has a southern American accent and sometimes doesn't it's annoying
