The skaven are hilarious. Those freaky psycho rather totally make the book. They have such a weird culture and they're all so delusional its a great read. I'd honestly prefer books from their perspective lol. I like the mains but I was rooting for the rats lol.

Pretty good, better then expected really as I went in looking for info on the warhammer races and not really expecting a decent set of adventure stories. Two things hold it back for me. By chapter 4 I was pretty tired of Felix thinking every fight would be his death and starting from about the same story the lack of conclusion to stories is frustrating. Minor spoilers kinda but not really. After completing the main goal such as finishing a boss or even b4 that the stories end without the usual wrap up conversation or much of anything really. Best example of this is the last story buddy wins, his companion shows up with a hostage and we have no clue what happens to her as it ends there. Chapter 4 has a main bad dude who's end would have been satisfying to read about and its not even covered as the story ends prior to the confrontation with the outcome glossed over in a monologue starting the next chapter. I should mention that every chapter is a separate adventure in Felix's journey told chronologically. Worth picking up if your into warhammer.

decent story dragged down by game mechanics

Narration is awsome and the premise of the story isn't bad. The characters have potential but are under utilized, mostly used to deliver reports and follow orders. This story could have been awsome but the balance is terrible. The biggest issue is its heavy reliance on game mechanics and tedious prompts. The main character checks status pages and looks up whole character sheets from his ppl just to see a single skill increment rather then just remarking on the improvement. The next thing to ruin the flow is the god awful resource management. I swear the author has the character spend 1/4 of the time in menus usually managing his meat. Literally took the most boring game elements and forgets the fun stuff like adventure and combat. Death is meaningless for most of the book as even tho hes in the game he still respawns. Why any author doing this genre uses respawn is strange, where is the suspense if death has no meaning for anyone that matters? Lastly it has my least favorite Male protagonist one that's scared of women hes interested in being close to him when they try and denies himself his own desires because its not "right". How many guys wouldn't be interested in romancing a girl your into cause it's a game? Ppl complain when there favorite game companions aren't romance options in non vr games and this protagonists is an unmarried gamer like hes turning down any female companionship. I do appreciate it not going the harem route like heroic villain but cant we find a natural middle between hugh Hefner and the eternal virgins.

too bad

It's sad to say this one is a miss for me. The first was enjoyable minus the sad backstory that's over emphasized. This one is kinda torture porn. Most characters are depicted poorly to justify there mutilation which isn't an instant deal breaker for me but in this book it's way overboard. On top of that the harem king of women bane of men thing is lame. I hate when an author feels the need to live out his sexual fantasies thru the main character. His monologues are cheesy villain lines yet they make every girl wet for him. When he does this on a massive scale it totally destroyed the book for me. God mode seduction of NPCs maybe of players come on. That's what in any game we'd call a game breaking skill that destroys the challenge and fun of any game/book. Also who could trust any one turned by a few terrible lines. Lastly the harem thing would probably be more interesting if buddy wasn't still pinning after his dead wife and ruining every happy victory moment with boring reflection of lost love or of past joy gone forever. I dont know his wife and the author assumes your gonna feel for his loss which I stopped doing midway thru the first audiobook when they played that bad music everytime he thought of her. Doubt I'd pick up a third book as it's likely to go full harem godking.

enjoyable

Funny story at times with someone just having fun saving his or his wife's favorite game. The characters are well done and pretty quirky, the princess is hilarious when she goes off on a tangent. Great pacing and decent combat scenes. The magic is simple but fun and the world is getting fleshed out at a great pace. My only complaint would be with the main characters backstory, that causes him to reminisce fairly often and each time theres this sad song like violins playing in the background. I realise these moments are meant to be sad but the music reminds me too much of the parody where ppl play the tiny violin to make fun of whiners and it ruins the reflection. Buddies grief is understandable it's more a combination of the effects and the timing that bugs me. He usually falls into these moments after a success or a moment of joy which then transitions into a sappy background track and buddies melancholy grieving. Since we dont know this character or his wife very much its hard to care for a fictional characters grief when u were trying to enjoy a well written fight and the post battle banter. Great book worth a look for sure.

story isn't bad but it's not compelling. The characters are decent tho kinda boring minus the orc lol. But one character cant save the terrible magic system and the mcs broken powers. The "magic" battle with that guildmaster was dreadfull. Lastly the author is inconsistent why write a scene where the character places limitations on himself like say not use his magic on mages to avoid discovery, then go and have him use it on the first 2 mages he encounters after that. Could be enjoyable if your not interested in details or depth.

the start is a shamefull replica of dungeon born. Even copies the annoying nagging dungeon whisp like everyone loves a nag and the corny naming convention. And dbag cores kowtowing to nagging sprites. I wonder if the genre is written by virgins. The music is terrible and doesn't fit the atmosphere sounds like circus music. The core sounds like a whiny brown nosing child. Hes a core with no anatomy why is he trying so hard like a lost puppy.

great world and characters aside from the nobles. Narrator does an excellent job. For the most part the story is ok but it has some flaws that just make it hard to bear. The final conflict is a joke with all the build up and atrocities for the villain to be so pathetic when it came time for the showdown was extremely disappointing. The way the main protagonist behaved was also stupid and hypocritical. He was sickened when he stumbled on the mutilated scene with the lance then replicates it in front of a crowd of students just to further the plot. The info drops are abit heavy and spoilery, we didn't need to learn about the divine conflict all in one go or at all. The suspense of who the demons were and what they were doing was well done and kept me interested. The reveal didn't feel natural. My last complaint would be the dramatic farewells and returns between main and his family. It's a scene that's been redone over and over everytime he leaves it's like hes going to war for the first time. Not only was it done 4 or 5 times it feels exaggerated. Decent story but poor execution.

narrator is broken

Decent story with alot of potential tho it suffers when the author tries too hard to dabble in philosophy instead of sticking with fantasy. The pacing is slow and the general mood is depressing. I really like the world he created but not really the ppl as everyone in this world is prejudist or spiteful against some group or another to there own detriment. The female narrator is inconsistent. Her impression of the sailors yaob and the captain for example changes from normal to heavily accented almost French between conversations. She made a large error as u cant change a characters voice once it's been established. Could u imagine if during a movie an actor suddenly started talking with a heavy accent half way thru a scene and that suddenly became his new voice for no reason? How this kinda stuff gets past production is strange. But it sours the performance.

Couldn't get more then 3 chapters in. The female lead had hormone issues as all she can think about is the sword spirits pretty face even while surrounded by the corpses of her previous associates which she murdered. Yet she's supposed to be a sweet innocent squirrel girl makes no sense feels glossed over or poorly scripted. The sword spirit keeps petting her head like a kid or a dog even tho they just met and this happens like 7 to 10 times in that chapter repeated way too much.Also during the second chapter repeating the characters conversations to get both points of view was redundant.The last straw was that the overly horny main heroine is also an idiot with a squirrel's attention span. Not a fan of dumb mc's there too frustrating and have the weakest character developments.
