Publisher's Summary

More leveling up. More killing. More stuff. 

So far, Dantem has enjoyed being the Bad Guy. He’s conquered cities, taken empires, and killed heroes. 

Unfortunately, until now, his chance at revenge and world domination has escaped him. 

But if he plays his cards right, and is more bad than ever before, he might just have one shot at killing all the people who have ever wronged him, taking their stuff, and then hearing the cries of their women.

Perfect for a newer author

Warning spoiler alerts. This is for the reader but also for the author and voice actors feedback. Indi authors need love a feed back to get better. Not the typical I love it it or it sucks.

A good balance of fights! An MC that thinks and plans, a balance of tough fight with easy wins, and a great supporting cast. Not all hail Marry’s win by the skin of you teeth which is just dumb to say in the simplest of ways. I would suggest keep developing the characters in the main party as some kind of flew off to the side. Over all I love the genius approach. A smart MC with some flaw but learns. No over the top huggy lovey everyone with some ruthless calculating with a touch of humanity. Really scratches that itch for a capable smart MC with bad ass abilities. Build on the abilities and not the drama and this series will go a long way with me waiting to get the next book.

Avoid trying to one up everything and keep letting the story flow like it is. You have a great pattern so build off of it. A bonus would be new and creative ways to beat the heros easily with in genius way. That takes more writing abilities then a last minute saving throw which is a trope that is way over done. It also makes the situations where you need the last minute saving throw special and matters and keeps you guessing.

I love of in the middle of the story the team barely won then easily beat the boss at the end with pure planning. That is development and learning. Also expect by a super smart MC.

Second I love the intermission with first person view into other characters. This is a grey zone at best. Done wrong and it makes the story dry done right and it adds depth. The perspectives actually add to the fun and made me laugh. It really add to the whole piece.

Great job by the voice actor. I know it is hard to do so many different voices. The pitch, cadence and tone felt like it really fit the situations. There was moments where the voices drew up short lacking deferences. But when it was on it was top notch. Keep working on diversity like Nick Podhel and Jef Hays. The voice you have down though I would put next to them as genuinely awesome. Your deep voice and sophisticated voice is top of the line. Good Eastern European too. Also you do a great job of caring over emotion. It never felt dead even if the accent was off. That is great potential talent. I really think you did an awesome job. Just most practice with other styles of voices. The one one you are good at though are a 10 out 10 and I wish some of my favorite books used you as the main protagonist and let the female actress take care of the other cast. They are amazing with a range that would blow a normal male voice actor out of there seat your is where it is at.

I hope this helps! And forgive the typos this review was one on an iPhone.

this is really good

this was very good I didn't see some of the twist coming my only regret is I did not see it sooner if you like the first one you'll love the second one not read the first one I suggest trying it and yes I know it's messed up so you can't see the first one

Not bad

Not a bad continuation. It is fun and the MC is actually a bit evil but not to much. It will be interesting to see what the MC will do in the future.

Amazing

the narration is quite a bit better than the first book and of higher quality I really like this series my only problem is that every one else besides the protagonist is a idiot
