Publisher's Summary

Adapt, evolve, and grow even stronger.

New friends, new foes, and the greatest opportunities yet to level up: a new continent filled with exciting adventures awaits Joseph.

North Maledith isn’t a place for those with weak will and soft hearts. Danger lurks at every corner and a storm of unrest is slowly brewing on the continent. Adventurer groups are disappearing. Bandits are at an all-time high.

Can Joseph, Aaron and Isabelle steel their hearts, and their resolve? Do they have what it takes to survive in this new and foreign land?

What a ride...

This one picks up right after book 1, go figure, right?

New heros join the party and they have many murderhobo adventures.


What a friggin twist, though. Left me mouth wide open in shock. Well done.

Narrator is top notch too.

Review

Narration was great no problems there. I enjoyed book 1 it was a good buildup for up for book 2. Unfortunately booked it was not good, it has a slice of life but it was very boring. The world has game mechanics, but the writer chose to focus on the story. Unfortunately the stories not really enjoyable. It’s actually a big step back from book 1 which is very surprising.

Bold author, meh narrator

First off this author has George RR Martin attitude towards plot armor. About all I can say without spoilers.

Narrator is really OK, except for the approximately 100 time he pronounced “golem” as “gallum”. I mean it isn’t even an American vs. British thing… they both pronounce it the same way.

I honestly don't know how to feel about it

like it's really good the beginning there are so many twists and turns I don't want to put any spoilers I honestly think if you like the first book you like this one

Not sure I'll continue

I'm finding it really hard to empathise with this protagonist. I can't be in the minority, wanting nothing to do with a snivelling coward.

Every time the protagonist was faced with insurmountable odds, he basically crumbles and falls apart. After the first book, where he ran away from friends to let them die, my dislike for him seemed peaked. Doing it AGAIN though? Just to survive?

I don't care how much 'hatred' he says he feels at this point. The way this book is going, he'll immediately forget these lessons and trundle along as he was before, crying at impossible odds, running in fear AND NOT INVESTING STAT POINTS WHEN GOING INTO LIFE AND DEATH SITUATIONS.

At this point, I don't want to continue. I'll have to reassess if the sequel comes out. This has to be the nadir for his character. If I do get the next book and he shows no growth, no spine, no balls, no true desire for revenge and the stomach to make it happen, I'll be returning it.

If you're going to write a coward of a character who keeps losing in a genre that's built on being escapist fantasy, the payoff best be worth it.
