Publisher's Summary

Never make a deal with a devil.

Steve had experience when it came to waking up with hangovers. Being attacked by kobolds? Not so much. After rousing in the middle of a monster-filled forest, he was sure his life was over. That was until he was saved by a fire-wielding angel who was anything but human. Now Steve finds himself a temporary guest on a small run-down farm filled with monster girls who need his help.

None more so than the canine beauty responsible for saving his skin.

In a month, her freedom is forfeit, unless she can somehow turn her failing farm around. It’s a challenge Steve is all too happy to accept, especially if it means getting to test out his strange new powers and mingle with the stunning monster girl livestock who can’t seem to take their eyes off him.

This farm needs a hero, and Steve will be damned if he doesn’t take up the role. He’s no longer just an ordinary IT manager; he’s now the savior these gorgeous women need.

Harem Farm contains smoking-hot monster girls, scenes that are more than just raunchy, and some lovely, bloody violence. Don’t say you weren’t told!

Ok, but predictable with slightly annoying MC

Fair warning, some spoilers may be used as examples.

For the most part, this is an okay story, but there were times when the MC annoyed the heck out of me. One of the main problems is that David Aries uses an easy-to-identify-villain-trope with "muh slavery" and "muh racism" and of course every bad guy or person you're supposed to dislike doesn't like monster girls or think they're inferior to humans. Sigh.

I'm not here to say racism or slavery are good things, but it's overdone isekai trope for, as I said, "This character's obviously a bad guy." Still, despite this, MC annoyed me with his constant declarations that everyone should love monster girls and how could people in this world be so stupid to believe they're inferior. He admits his love of monster girls is a fetish and he admits that even on Earth that the vast majority of people would not share his fetish, yet he runs around declaring that everyone on this strange world he's been teleported to should love monster girls like he does. It just felt annoying, like he ignored his own counterargument to his declarations, specifically that even on Earth there aren't people into monster girl fetish.

This also comes off as lacking any nuance. For example, MC learns from the monster girls that at one time the demi-beasts were actually wild and dangerous creatures without civilization until someone came along to teach them. Or at least, according to one belief of their, the monster-creatures', ancient origins. In other words, it opens up grounds for MC to consider the possibility that at one time humans and demi-beasts may have had a hostile past with humanity coming out on top in the end and thus, humanity still harbors resentment. Instead, David Aries heavy hands it with the story only being told from the monster girl side and MC only embracing their viewpoint because he can't think past his Object P.

With that said, the other annoying thing about the MC is that as usual for this genre, he spouts a lot of faux-bravado that the author then uses plot armor to back up. I hate that. I seriously do. While I'm not saying he has to kowtow to people or the bad guy, he rarely did two smart things, that even most beginner to moderate gamers or even geeks, comic book readers, pop-culture connoisseurs would do, he never tries to figure out his powers. He just clumsily moves about waiting for his power to randomly decide on its own to help him out. Yes, he gets a random power up at a pivotal point in the story just because the author wanted him to at that time. Two, he rarely thought beyond the current situation until the author forced him to.

Also, faux-bravado is often written with the idea that the MC is not a wimp, but it still comes off as annoying faux-bravado when the MC's mouth is just causing him and everyone else extra problems. For example, he knows this world has legal slavery and mistreatment of demi-beasts, yet he goes around opening his mouth, challenging people like he has any actual power to do something about it and often makes the situation worse for himself and those monster girls with him. (This gets way worse in book two which I'll review on KU when I'm done.) So, overall, MC's running off at the mouth like this just comes off as empty. As someone who grew up in bad neighborhoods, I can tell you that the person who ran their mouth the most was the least likely to be the person who actually did anything about it, backed up their crap talk in the end.

There were other things like his being adverse to marriage for some strange reason. Another character annoyed me with her being adverse to getting pregnant, if it were just her, fine, but she was setting up rules that the other women couldn't get pregnant either. Just because it was her property. No, I don't have a pregnancy or a breeding fetish. It was just annoying. I could see if she gave a reason and if MC gave a reason about marriage, but it was just-because-I-said-so declarations.

There were other things often found in the harem genre as well such as the obligatory orgy scene. Characters going obligatorily bisexual for said scene and others despite one character being entirely standoffish and shy about anything sex-related, but I guess the author would argue, that the shy character acted like a freak in bed so that was justification. The usual female characters become sex-obsessed once MC sticks Object P in their Slot V's. I get it, smut is part of the package, but I only really found one scene interesting, but it lost it's interesting aspect once it turned into an orgy. Sigh.

Lastly, the plot could have been resolved if one character wasn't acting entirely contradictory to their beliefs the entire time. I imagine she was supposed to be the tsundere type who had entirely too much Tsun and not enough dere (even still going on in book 2, but I'll get to that in a KU review when I'm done). She resolves the entire problem in the end despite everyone's struggles. Not only that, the MC as I said never considers figuring out his powers to see if it would offer a counter ability to the, let's call it a spell that trapped him and another character in their predicament. His power seemed to like to hand him OPesque skills when his power felt, yes I said felt because even the MC questions if his power is sentient, to give him the power upon MC's proper request for it. So, he could have asked for a plant growing power, slave spell breaking power, etc. You get the point. To be fair, it wasn't that easy. Sometimes he'd prompt his power for a response and it'd just ignore him, which takes me back to him never taking the time to figure out his power. Oh, but he had ample time to have sex every night despite a dead line coming that would cause him and another character their lives.

With that said, the story is "ok" if you're looking for a predictable plot, predictable problems with predictable answers and the usual things you find in harem stories. As I said the usual obsessed-with-sex female characters who end up in the obligatory orgy scene without one of them having significant, put-her-foot-down objections to everyone expecting her to just fall into temporary bisexual activity, etc.

not the same as others.

The title made my eyes roll. I think all the inde writers have meetings on what they are gonna put out. As the title is similar to others its actually a different book. pretty good book too. But to me the female narration did the fifth star for me. Yes, the author did write it pretty good but she got it perfect. Had me in giggles with her voices.

But the story is well done. Well paced. And the dialog is good. OH, and the MC isn't a wimp.

not special

Monster girl content is solid. The story doesn't move very far along. Not much too this book really other then monster girl interaction. MC is surprised a soul enslaving demon will cheat and actually doubles down with is own soul? That pretty much summarizes book one other than establishing the prejudice the girls suffer. I always fall for the cover art and buy this horrible writing as a mistake.

Captivating

This story was great to listen to, one that pulls you in with every word. Not over filled with smut material, and pleanty of description for every scene. I will definitely be listening to the next two in the series.

The longest Vegetarian promotional PSA ever

It Really try’s to cram ‘Animals are people too’ and ‘meat is murder’ into your face. Almost to the point of it being the primary premise. And with 0 subtlety, They didn’t even Try to hide it.

Buuuut if you can ignore that, and the fact the MC is a gibbering moron, and a few other lesser character flaws from the supporting females that get hammered to death, it’s not that bad. Not vary good either, but still not bad. I’ve definitely read worse.

Love it!

The story is great, extremely well written. It's an isekai novel about monster girls with a hot harem. My favorite genre. The narrators are absolutely awesome too, especially the female. She's so cute and the story made me laugh so many times. I HIGHLY suggest reading!

Fun, sexy harem story

Really enjoyed book one, the characters and setting were a lot of fun. While there are some high stakes involved, it was mostly just a relaxed farming tale with some sexy monstergirl fun. The voice actors did an excellent job and I'm looking forward to the next book!

You know what it is, it knows what it is :)

Basic and enjoyable. probably not gonna win an award but cheerful enough distraction.

Main char is not the DUDEBRO that most of them end up and the overall story is nice.

good light hearted lit/harem listen

I enjoyed this book. was a bit lighter depth wise than some others in the litrpg/harem class but more than made up for it with excellent naration. the next book should add more character depth to a really good intro book. will definately read next book.
I recommend this book for those that enjoy this class of book.

A Fun Read

I can’t wait for more. I wasn’t sure about the voice acting at first but it very quickly grew on me.

The story wasn’t all convoluted, it had a focus and didn’t spend time going over pointless side matters. Everything had a purpose and it was all very enjoyable.

The smut was a bonus, I think the cute plot was enough to satisfy me, but they did fairly well with that as well. They didn’t over write or drag it out. I liked that they actually talked during the scene, I don’t see that as much as I’d like to.

Overall, it was an enjoyable listen. Had a nice amount of flirtatious comedy. It was ver enjoyable and I really hope they do a reading on the second book.
