Publisher's Summary

Born in fire. Destined to triumph.

Raised by a fallen paladin of an oppressive church, Targon is sentenced to compete in the multiverse's most deadly competition: The Guardian Games. To become an Ember Mage, he will need the strength and discipline to tame the fire in his soul, while slaying monster-filled dungeons. Of course, this is assuming he can attain enough cookies to keep his quirky, pixie guide satisfied.

Good…..

I came for Todd Menesses and the cover art and the story called Ember Mage. I found the story compelling in the beginning and found myself not caring about the side characters. I think if the book had more build up I would have been more into the side MCs. The book was to short and the story of the Ember mage was cool and narration was awesome.

A bit lascivious and a bit dark but ...

the worst buzz-kill was the tidal wave of stat dumps that eventually washed away any interest in finishing the book. I made it two thirds into it mostly on the narration fine performance from Todd Menesses.

My first Opo book, I'll be looking for more...

The prolog makes you think you're reading Hellboy, but that is the only thing they really have in common.
This has been an awesome book and I am so looking forward more of this series.

outstanding

a great story with multiple points of view gives you a compassionate link with all of the characters you come across. as with different characters you get different magics to explore as they level up and interact. the guides they get is a new and exciting twist as each has their own personality. a fun listen overall.

Authors best work yet

I was pretty high on Chads work after the manager series. But he is getting better. He does a great job creating a world I want to experience if only as a game. The main characters could very well be protagonists in their own series. Don’t miss this promising new series

like many others I did enjoy this story quiet well but some of the side characters lacked the fluidity others did that kept you interested in them the entire time

I did enjoy everything else quiet a bit I will say and loved the performance! Will recommend :)

looking Forward to the next book

Huge fan of the MC book draws you in and without any spoilers ton of character development goes on with several characters. if you don't like a book that jumps around between characters don't fear to much, This book does jump between characters but it is ether a short chapter just to keep u up to date . I do recommend this book if you are looking for a a book to scratch your litrpg itch.

good characters

good characters and good story, but the author spends too much time on secondary characters
that to be frank I just can't care about. I enjoy side characters but when you keep breaking the pase with another character it gets old.
