Publisher's Summary

One fateful day, a caravan was passing by the village of Teira, which had been raided and set ablaze by bandits. Within the burning rubble, a young woman found a baby, the sole survivor of the attack, and decided to take it with her and raise it as her own. As she was leaving with the little child in her hands, two falling stars lit up the night sky, and she named the boy Asterios.

Years passed and the boy grew up in a caring and warm home, developing a passion for all magical beasts, choosing the path of a Summoner as his way of life. While his love and knowledge also grew boundless, his practical abilities clearly pointed out his complete lack of compatibility with that school of magic, but he never wavered in his resolution.

Follow Asterios as his life of perpetual failure suddenly takes an unexpected turn, after just seconds short of his death, a powerful summon answers his call and saves his life. Wait...doesn't it look like...A GIRL?! Are those beast ears and a tail?!

Another!!!

I feel like I want to finish a flagon of ale throw it on the ground and bellow “another!” I can’t wait till the rest of the books come out. Amber does an amazing job. The story is captivating and fulfilling and royal guard studio really goes all out.

lack of mature content warning/unnecessarily lewd

The story concept is fairly novel and for the most part fairly entertaining. I am all for shipping the 2 main characters, and having romantic moments but you don't need a full blown word porn sex scene. just say it happened and move on. along with that you should have a mature content warning. If your going to write something that graphic people have the right to know. It's not for everyone and they should know what they are getting into before buying the book. Other than the sex scene and a few other times that was really pushing the envelop I did really enjoy the book. Unfortunately I will no longer be reading this series because of the afore mentions.

good story line

this book has a good storyline starting off. the development of them main characters is different from most. and when it comes to the aspects of summoning and having Beast work with you or you control them the nice way of thinking a treat the things or people that you have working with you

Very Enjoyable

I really enjoyed this I got the ebook version and enjoyed it. While I don't really love a female doing male voices I very much enjoyed this performance. When more come out as audiobooks I will get them as well.

Childish with out-of-place adult scenes.

This book should have been a children's book as it's extremely awkward and elementary. The characters are supposed to be over 18 but they all act like middle schoolers. There are unnatural anime scenes as well as immature dialog scenes. And then suddenly there is a full on sex scene that's extremely cringe worthy. The narrator did a great job with the story she was given.

hungry for more

for the genre it is slow paced but it feels much more natural than the majority of others. for starters there's only one female protag (more to come in later books I hear). I could have had it go even slower but that's just me wanting a romance book geared toward men (not a fantasy that becomes a harem).
the narrator does a great job but I read online somewhere the next book will have a different one.
I guess I'll stop rambling, give it a try

fun fantasy romp

I enjoyed this story alot. the four star is because of minor polishing that I tend to find and aggravates me. Definitely deserved a read, though it felt like a manga or anime given a novelization. If that turns you off then becareful.

Good start

Very fun story with interesting characters. Looking forward to what happens next. I am a little disappointed that it went from a hard working MC that could of proven themselves through that hard work to a chosen one storyline but this story is still good and the narrator rocks.

Well Worth a Listen

Firstly, the story and narrator were both quite good. I really enjoyed the slow relationship building between the two main characters. I'm glad the author took it slow and also didn't make the male lead a clueless, bashful idiot.
The book did have some shortfalls, but nothing that really ruined it. Every male in the book other than the lead was either a terrible person or a clueless incompetent, and all the women seemed enamored with the MC. I don't even think this was done intentionally, it was probably just a subconscious thing on the author's part, but women can be terrible people too, and other men than the main character can be strong and kind - just saying.
Apart from that, there are a number of incorrect word choices and wrongly worded figures of speech, but I doubt the average listener of this genre will pick up on them or even care. The love scene at the end was also a bit cringey to me, but again, I doubt the average listener of this genre will agree with me.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be picking up any sequels when they are available.
Oh, by the way, bonus points to the author for not writing in first person like 99% of the other newbie writers do in this genre.

Just one you just go "awww"

This is a story that is so sweet and innocent that you don't need any candy. It is well written and the characters are strong and likeable.
Amber does a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life. She established unique personality for each character. She makes the story a pleasure to listen to.

Really fun, enjoyable book.

Really enjoy this series. I have owned both the Kindle version and the original audible version since they were released. I was part way through listening to it again when I did a search to find out when the next book is due for audible release.
Turns out one of the two VA's for the book wasn't coming back for book 2 so the author was forced to make the hard decision to have book 1 re-recorded with a new VA.

I was worried I wouldn't like it since I really enjoyed the original voice actors and sometimes changing VAs can kill a series. Turns out I had nothing to worry about. The new voice actor Amber Lee Connors did an amazing job. Even though I was part way through listening to it again with the original voices when I purchased the new version, it only took about 15 mins before I was completely engrossed with the new voices for the characters.

If you have the original version I really recommend getting this new copy. it's well worth it.

Looking forward to book 2's release!!

Amazing Story

I have read all the books on Amazon and after listening to this narration i just want more to be done! The narrator does an amazing job using simple effects to emphasise certain aspects of the story. loved it, want more of it, please do it.
