Publisher's Summary

Beneath the Sacred Seas, demons are stirring.

An ancient evil rises. An army from the depths of hell comes with her.

In the Heavens above, a seraph with more ambition than the Heavens can contain is coming to confront her.

The Sacred Seas have become a playground for forces beyond their power to contend with. In the war between the Heavens and the Hells, only one man can stand for humanity.

But Darren is a keen sword forged in Hell. Growing up fighting demons for as long as he could remember, he is a naked blade that cuts down all in his path. This paladin of the sword must become a shield to guard what he holds dear.

Now the King of Limedeep and with new friends to protect, Darren must learn to protect what he holds dear.

And he'd best learn fast, for both the Heavens and the Hells are whispering his name.

very enjoyable

This was my first exposure to this series and the gamelit genre. I was given a free code for the audible version. I enjoyed the story, but it took a little bit to get used to the OP-MC. There was enough back story to fill in what happened even if, like me you didn't read the first novel. The voice acting was superb and the explanation of how the world worked was done well. The story moved along at a good pace and didn't get bogged down in minutia. Overall I liked it an am looking forward to the next installment.

Sex Slave

first book was good this one not so much the way the author has made Cassandra to get Daren to treat Morgana like a sex slave and constantly humiliating her completely ruins this story

An absolutely wild ride with a fantastic narrator!

if you liked the first book, you are going to love this one. not only is it a beefy 22 hours, but the action does not stop nor do the skill evolutions nor do advancing the plot and meeting wonderful new characters. I cannot wait to see what happens next.

Top Tier Harem Adventure

This book is top tier material. You get a great bang for your buck. Most authors seem to think that if they make the story longer that 10 hrs they have written to much. Marvin puts a great story out, gives you great value, and has a fun universe with lots of powerful ladies. Jessica brings those ladies to life as good as anyone in the industry. Great performance! Thanks 😊

great follow up

this series has quickly become one of my favorites. the mc kind of reminds me of a friend of mine. seemingly slow and takes things literally all the time but is a genius in their own right with a heart of gold. Jessica Threet is a national treasure and does a great job as always.

Grow a Spine!!!

Ok I liked the first book and overlooked some of the character flaws because it made at least a little sense but I feel I need to warn people who are about to listen to this book. I think you should read the book as the story line is not bad but the MC has one SERIOUS flaw that I just can't get past. He will not stand up for himself when his lovers (in my opinion greedy and selfish) have anything to say. No person who has their own opinions will never speak up about them in any way. For example he hates wearing tight clothes but as soon as Cassandra ask he wears them again and again. For me my frustration with this character takes be out of the story.

Footnote this is just my opinion and should be taken as such. I suggest you listen to the book and craft your own if you don't like it you can return the book.

Awesome!

Really like long audiobooks and this one didn't disappoint and another great performance by Jessica threet, I just wonder of the MC would be traveling around after he defeats the prime saint because of all the hintings the author gave during the book and i really want that to happen

Fantastic series and a brilliant ending!

Honestly, can't wait for the 3rd installment in this series and this book was brilliant, even better than the first,

Darren makes himself known to World, Heavens & Hells as he goes up against the strongest beings in existence, The finale was great and really build up the anticipation for the next book which will be an instant buy.

A great second book.

This is a follow from the first book. It made me giggle at some of the situations Darren gets into. The story was a great continuation that builds on the first book that explains some of the stuff I had questions about. It gave details about his mother. All I can say is don't trust anyone not with you.
Jessica does a fantastic job bringing life to the story. She shows that she's really a great narrator.
5*****

a piece of Art

A great book. definitely one of the best stories out there. the scenes were completely unexpected and totally blew my mind. The move,MC pulled at the end of the book was pure insanity and totally awesome. this was undoubtedly one of the best books I've ever had the pleasure to hear.
as always, Jessica Threet was amazing and gave real life to characters.
