Publisher's Summary

Reincarnated as the War God - he has a lot to learn to live up to that title.

His power is only as good as the skill he possesses to wield it. But there is a reason the former War God fell. He can only dare to imagine what foes lie in wait. He will have to build a team out of a former shield maiden, an elven sorceress intent on hiding her power, a beautiful lycan who doesn't trust anyone, and a mortal-hating fire celestial. What could be hard about that?

This book contains some adult content and is intended for a mature audience.

MC is Handed Almost Everything "Minor Spoilers"

I am a huge fan of the Author's Decend series but this series is supremely different. While I like the premise of this story and the narrators are top notch the MC doesn't seem to be smart enough to even ask his "all knowing" companion the important questions about the dangers of his new world existence. Not to mention trusting her blindly until it becomes important, then not listening to her at all. To me everything seems too contrived just to put the MC together with the rest of his "team". I think the story would make far more sense if our MC signed up for the Arena of his own free will and volition.

Instead the "Demigod of War" is captured and enslaved to fight in a "No Killing" Gladiatorial Arena.

Does that statement sound right to you?

I am unsure if I can muster the patience to finish this book.

Wahoo!

I am a huge fan of Daniel Wisniewski and Rebecca Woods. They have some fantastic audio and I love hearing their narration. This story was really brought to life by them and I enjoyed it immensely. The pacing was good, the events gripping, and the storytelling top notch. Don't take my word for it, give it a try.

This is not an erotic book.

This is not an erotic book. It's slow, boring and only has one sex scene.

I like the narrators but even they couldn't save it.

Well written! Exciting Action! Awesome world!

Descend is one of my favorite series and I was stoked to see book one of his newest series on Audible. I wasn't disappointed one bit. This may be better than his first series. I can tell his craft has improved exponentially. I loved every second of the book and the performances were top notch. I can't wait for book 2.

Great new book from David Burke!

Great new novel from David Broke not only are the narrators one of the best. We also got plenty of world building, character building with a decent cast, a MC whos really trying to change and already has a decisive and great personality among so much more!

Great First Book

I really enjoyed this first book in a new series. It had a great surprise elements along with standard fantasy elements. The MC was somewhat complex as he struggled between what he was and who he was becoming which caused growth in his character.

The voice talent was excellent as always when I listen to Daniel and Rebecca and I have to give them great credit for bringing out the nuances in each of the voices.

Overall I highly recommend this book and I am sure anyone who takes the time to listen to it will enjoy it.

Great performers, great action, and great writing!

Let me lead this by saying both of these performers are well known for a reason. They're great at what they do and Mr. Burke did a wonderful job recruiting them to perform this piece for us.

The War God for Hire book is exactly what most haremlit readers are looking for. Wonder, action, excitement, power, sexy women. All of it is in this book. Read and enjoy!

Started well, got worse

This book is slow, not a bad thing in its self but i spent the whole book waiting for something to matter. it did not, i was almost going to send it back but it's not quite that bad so here it will stay but i'm unlikely to get any more in this series which is a shame as i enjoyed the "Going Deeper" book much more.
