Save your credit


The story is filled with inconsistencies and for me made the story painful to read. The “value” of life, from the way history is presented should be great but cut-out-characters disregard life on a whim without explanation.
There were some interesting aspects, like weapon spirits. That can manifest a body? Weapon spirit wields itself?
Along with early writers errors This Cursed Sword is Rated E rates an D.

Very different kind of hero.

I liked that the hero has a very off personality, being an awakened object his mental state has a kind sociopath vibe but it works in that he is not a human and can not be expected to think like a human does.
The narrator having a English accent gives more polish and reminds me of a BBC documentary series.
I would recommend this book to anyone you loves progression stories, might, swordplay and magic.

A good cursed sword story

I love Red's growth into his nature as a cursed sword and this as a genre. Its such an interesting and different perspective with so many possible conflicts and opportunities for fun arcs. I hope to see more!

Really comes into its own

The beginning of this book is... rough... it constantly repeated the same lines over and over again and had little substance. That being said, it quickly came into its own and had a great progression system. Worth the money/ credit!

New perspective. Well narrated. Great plot/story.

This almost felt like Dungeon Core inside of a sword and I loved it! This is a great story from a perspective I have never read or entertained before. Chris and Wolfe did a great job on this one. Once the bloodlust in the sword was matched with the bloodlust in a human, I knew this would be a great adventure and it is! This was my first time listening to anything narrated by Jonathan Johns. I enjoyed his narration but did speed it up to 1.2 for a better flow in my opinion. Great overall and look forward to the next book and narration!

Incredible overall book

Fantastically funny story. Both writing and narration were on spot and quite enjoyable. I loved it overall as it had rich characters with complex motivations and a great plot with enough twists to keep me guessing

I can't wait for book 2!

This is an awesome story, once I started I could not stop. I consider it a good read when I feel emotionally connected to a character, without spoiling anything let me just say the action is perfect, the progression is sat I actually got watery eyes. All in all this is a very good book and I definitely recommend it! I can't wait for book 2 now!

Worth the time

I really liked the premise of this story. I didn’t like the narrator to much and it did take from the story for me a bit. I would like to continue the story but I think I’ll stick to book format for this one.

Great ideas

Cool unique concept. I can honestly say that I have not read a book that has a sentient sword as the main protagonist. There are some cool LitRPG elements with a mix of cultivation. I enjoyed the unpredictable plot. Solid narration.

review of this Cursed Sword is E Ranked

I found this Cursed Sword is E Ranked To be a little hard to get into it was a big info dump for the first few chapters but overall a really good book to listen to on my car rides to work.

Excellent

This book stood out for me. The fact it is from a sentient sword finding its way in the world was certainly a different viewpoint, and it worked. There was good pace, and world building skills were excellent used. Im hoping Red has further stories as I feel there is still more to learn. Well done
