Publisher's Summary

Ryan "Quicksave" Romano is an eccentric adventurer with a strange power: he can create a save-point in time and redo his life whenever he dies.

Arriving in New Rome, the glitzy capital of sin of a rebuilding Europe, he finds the city torn between mega-corporations, sponsored heroes, super-powered criminals, and true monsters. It's a time of chaos, where potions can grant the power to rule the world and dangers lurk everywhere.

Ryan sees many different routes, and from Hero to Villain, he has to try them all. Only then will he achieve his perfect ending...no matter how many loops it takes.

Refreshingly different

I love the power/abilities ...I love the action sequences ...I love the humor ...also, I love that it is not based around the US, cuz important things can happen in other places too.
The writing is dope, there are gaming elements ...but only cuz the MC chooses to view things that way. This is not a typical level up get stronger type story. The core concepts of this story allow really unique perspectives to develop ...and that in turn makes for some great world building. The relationships between characters are complex and constantly shifting ...the coolest moments in the story aren't the result of flashy powers ...it's cleverness, subtlety, and mind games that make the story shine

It's still in the same neighborhood as litrpg stories, but it focuses on different things.
I really enjoyed it, and I highly recommend!!!

"I'm immortal... but don't tell anybody"

I'm very pleased to see another fan favorite novel of a RoyalRoad novelist debuting in audiobooks.
This novel has a very funny MC who's over the top commitment to bringing you your mail will leave millions of damages in his wake.
In a world where you're "immortal" and no one remembers you most of the time, you find yourself living for self made goals "quests" and the world is your RPG.
Mr Summerer has done a fantastic job in bringing a voice to our MC. He hasn't failed to capture his wit.

He has a plushy, and he isn't afraid to use it.

Okay, if you like Deadpool and Dr Who, then you will like this character. A force of controlled chaos.

Cliché dump

Couldn't finish. Premise was good. However, the writer just dumped a whole bunch of cliches & mixed in all kinds of tired tropes. Don't waste your credit.

Mehhh

Ok ok who am I kidding, this book is kick ass!!! It is as smooth as silk. The narration is pretty amazing, only time I was jerked out of my audio trance like state is when the narrator mispronounced a couple key words. If you get this highly recommended book you will see. Other then that enjoy!!

Almost didn’t buy, but glad I did.

Having read some of the negativity reviews I almost didn’t buy it, but now I have another series to earmark a credit for.

Good world building and character development without losing interest in exploring powers. I was originally worried that Ryan/Quick Save would be a jerk or tiresome, instead he became more interesting.

one of the best narrations plus an incredible book

this is one of the best stories I've read with an extremely complex plot.

most authors going for this fail spectacularly. he did not.

not perfect, sometimes annoying but so good when it comes to making it all fit and creating believable characters you care about -- even bad guys.

can't recommend it more even though a few ideas and opinions bothered me. but just so well executed and so many great parts and ideas. and the believability... the powers....

nothing in comics or TV or cinema has ever done even 10% of what the author achieved here.
it all pales like a cheap knockoff product.

Not for the innocent!

This book is amazing. It has a solid plot, hilarious interactions and well fleshed out characters. There is a lot of dark humour. I could see this being a hit Netflix TV series.

Right Up My Alley

When I first saw the description, even before a voice sample was available, I knew I was going to love this.

Safe to say I was not disappointed.

The protagonist is a bit of an oddball but that makes him all the more enjoyable to follow along with. As a pun enthousiast I was thrilled with the good humour he sprinkles into the tale.

The story felt to me like a slowly unfolding flower, spreading revealing more about the world and its history. Quite a joy to see unfurl such an interesting world.

The narration was good, with some well placed character voices.

A very fun and upbeat and listen overall.

a lot of fun!

there is a glorious balance of black comedy surrealism and angst that I didn't realize I really wanted but mark me satisfied!!
even though it's a time loop narrative, the side characters slowly get fleshed out and I found myself enthusiastically along for the ride, literally just picked this up off of an email reccomendation and am very glad of it!

Hilarious!

Funny and intriguing story. I think the only think it really misses is intriguing twists and turns which i think mother of learning- a book with a similar premise, really excelled in. But regardless, the characters are all fleshed out and unique and the story is amazing. Definitely recommend it.

Not for me

The premise sounds good but is massively flawed. The Courier's main ability renders everything meaningless, moreso since he can just (and does) repeat every action to reach a decision point again.

it's an unfun version of Groundhog Day.

The world building here is odd-but-fine, but there are far too many unkillable characters.

A story with no tension and a lead character who is tiresome with very little wit.

Narration is fine but with no characterisation.

Made me extremely agressive

I like to listen to relax, but this audiobook made me and a friend restless and agressive. This may be fine for most listeners, but this is definetely not my forte. The story is good, but not outstanding with a bit too much of a god complex by the main character.

good concept, with interesting takes on 'heroes'

A lot more than just another power fantasy trilogy.

Some really good ideas on the whole villain/hero thing in a creative world and a story explores the grey area between good and bad people.

I like the original and creative world, characters have an ok level of depth and the plot was pretty unique.

I particularly love the odd duality between the callous (almost loony-toons level) violence and disconnection the Main Character has, because of his abilities and his half-mad wisdom and drive for a twisted 'better' outcome.

After having read more of this series, I would say that this first book is the weakest in the series, the balance between the 'slightly mad power fantasy' and deeper impact of responsibility the MC bears, is done better in the second book.

Update: After having read the third and last book of this series, I can honestly say the first book is the worst off in this series. and that all of my positive remarks above are very much deserved!
A very zany, deep, well wrapped-up story!

Top ten series

This series has become one of my all time favorites. I don't keep a numbered list but if I did it would at least be in the top ten. Brilliantly plotted out and one of those books that just constantly makes you question where the f*** this author gets his magic from and can I have some too, please!?

A Chaotic Good Time

A surprising and refreshing listen that blends some mild humour with pop sci-fi; enjoyable from beginning to end with a likeable protagonist, a great cast of characters, and a really fun narrative. At times the pop culture references stray a bit into the cringy try-hard area, but this occurs rarely enough to not detract from a great story. Well worth a listen!

Made me Think of Edge of tomorrow the movie

Really fun book, I saw a comparison of its tone to "Everybody loves large chests" which i really enjoyed. It has darker elements like that but not as hard-core.

The story is much easier to follow than I thought it would be and the narrator really nailed the character.

I'll definitely be getting 2 when it's out.

Deep dive on humanity, disguised as a action adven

This book gives both fun and a deep look on what it is to be alive and human

What drives us forwards to survive day to day when its not always the easiest option to do so

It contains heavy theams of sucide depression and yet is a rather upliftign piece that will make you smile

superficial start turns out to be good writing

the book began as if it was to be another murder hobo story but then the universe expanded and everything just made sense and was justified. really satisfying way to write, buying the sequel immediately!

10/10 Will read again

Absolutely adored this novel.
Couldn't stop reading it.
The characters are so relatable and interesting.
The humour is so well balanced with the plot.
The power system is interesting and well thought out.
I wish there was more than just 3 in this series but all good things must come to an end.

Brilliant story. Excellent Narration.

A different take on the time travel groundhog day type genre. The narrator really brought the characters to life and didn't detract from the story at all. Highly recommend.

This is a strange one.

I can say that I do like the book, from the zaniness of Ryan and the amazing characters to the world building. Then again Ryan's motivation gets my goat a little. Might have to wait to see what happens next to understand where the story goes.
