Description

A town put to the sword. The young forcibly recruited. An old man out for revenge.

After his town is put to the sword and the children are taken to replace the fallen, an old man is out for revenge. He’s ready to fail at the most difficult challenge in the world: cultivation.

Too corrupted to even take the first steps, the sly old elder simply agreed with those who told him that it was impossible. Then, he quietly ignored them, rubbed his hands together, and started anyway. He had always failed in what he did: He lost his way from the academy, his command was devastated by a mage, he lost his town, and now his last hopes for the future had been stolen by a group of raiders. The only thing that had never failed him was his sharp mind and philosophy. He would cultivate...no matter what it cost him.

A lifetime of failure can dull and dampen a soul. A reason to live, a goal, can change that in an instant. It is always darkest just before the dawn.

Disappointed

I’m quite surprised this book has such a high rating. I have loved every one of Dakota’s books. But, this book is 9–10 hours of how one man learns to cultivate and maybe 2 hours of interesting content. It got a bit more interesting right at the end. I’m not sure if I’ll be listening to the sequel. I hope this is just a small blip in a library of great books.

Honestly, I'm blown away.

I didn't know what to expect from this one. I'm a fan of Dakota Krout and his Divine Dungeon universe, but I hadn't heard of this Vanderkerken fellow. Still, I liked the main character when he was in the other books, so I gave it a shot.

I can't express how much I enjoyed this audiobook. I knew this was going to be a good one by the end of the second chapter, but even then I didn't expect this level of entertainment.

Never have I known a more likeable protagonist than Artorian. He's basically the favorite grandfather that you never knew you had. If I had to choose whether to save him or Baby Yoda, I would probably cry because I would expect that Artorian would want me to pick Baby Yoda. But I would be wrong, because Artorian doesn't want me to choose a specific option. He wants me to make the choice that I want to make, and if I'm happy, then he's happy. And while that wouldn't help me make the call, it would bolster my self-confidence in most other situations.

I can't wait to continue Artorian's adventures in the next book. This was truly a great experience, and I feel better than I would after reading some self-help book about unleashing your potential through meditation and business savvy. So don't waste your credit on some egomaniac's buzz word monologue; buy this book!

Oh, and the narrator was good, too.

Don’t start hear but don’t skip either.

Yes, it was intended. ;)

But seriously, start with Dungeon Born and the Divine Dungeon series.

Artorian is back and nothing is going to stop him

What makes Artorian such a great character is his uncanny ability to frustrate so many others while still working for their own betterment. This quality is further refined and enhanced in this book.

It is a great listen and highly engaging to have an MC that makes mistakes intelligently. That is, the mistakes are made in the pursuit of a better way of doing things, not the typical,"Any idiot would have seen that was a bad idea" mistakes that pervade the genre.

This one is well worth your time.

A delightful blend of world building, system explanations and character development all wrapped in a wholesome developing story. I sincerely can't wait for book two after this emotional tale.

Extremely slow to start but worth it.

This book was very slow getting started. I almost stopped listening to it. But the reviews said it was awesome so I drudged through...and they were right. Things eventually started happening and from that point on it was a good time. The guy reading this does a very good job. I'll read the next in the series.

the choices one can live with

the heartwarming tale of an aged man who has determined to find joy in the community of people around him. With witty banter, an indomitable will, and a remarkably disciplined mind (and a little good fortune) our hero determines to provide his grandchildren a chance to choose their own identity.

The gentle wisdom, calm wit, and absolute determination, inspired and warmed me, as I enjoyed this book. i hope it can provide as much satisfaction when you read it.

This is must-read

This may be one of the most unique cultivation novels I've read, Smash that buy button. Be warned, this is not a novel packed full of action, it's a methodical and well-developed story of characters.

Travis Baldree is, as always, a masterful narrator.

A universe enriching story

I found the change in perspective and location was thoroughly enjoyable. My favorite part being the in depth talk about cultivation I love knowing the mechanics of a story world

I want another, but..

IMO the author spent way too much time explaining cultivation mechanics. It was built well into the story so it wasn't bad, just a lot.
