Description

Evan was just an average guy working as an EMT, but when he puts on an ancient dragon mask, he’s teleported to the magical world of Inati as a powerful black dragon.
 

Now, he’ll have to save a beautiful priestess, rebuild a broken city, and fight a horde of zombie-like monsters led by an ancient demonic evil.
 

If he wins, then the opportunity to build his powers, treasure horde, and empire will await him. If he loses, then his new friends will all suffer fates worse than death.

teenage boy sex fantasy book

I really try to get into this book but could not. It started off great but soon turn into a teenage boy sexual fantasy. From every female he came across he wish to bone them. To details of how he wish to do so. I took me over two months to get through the book. Hoping that maybe it would get a bit more interesting. I was hoping the book to be more about dragon and the city then about trying to some some. This book many be for other but not for me.

MC is rough shot, and not thought out well

The MC comes off as a 16yr old in the body of a 25yr old EMT. The reactions, the way he talks, the way he acts, and the mannerisms do not fit the character description and the backstory. This is essentially a grown man whose made it to be an EMT and the life experiences that come with it, but when the character comes off as a some weird mix of child and adult that doesn't mix well. Then you throw in the fact that he is now a dragon and the character motivations that go with that don't mix well. I don't think it was well thought, or at least enough...

I understand that Eric Valls books have a particular genre in mind/target audience of which I would put myself in. On top of that the speed at which Eric pumps books out is incredible but unfortunately I think in this case haste to make quantity resulted in wasted quality. Disappointing...

Narrator too fast!

The narrator was way too fast and sounds drunk if you try to slow it down. Don't waste your money, this was poorly done on a good story.

Fastest Reader Ever

Super disappointed. I was looking forward to this book coming to audible as Eric usually has some of the best performers for his books. This one, however, sounds like they recorded it then speed it up to 1.5x regular speed. Even when I slow it down, they still are reading it to fast for me to enjoy. Not sure if it was an accident with the upload or what but would like to see it fixed.

Narration was terrible!

The story was pretty good and I am usually a big fan of Vall. Unfortunately the narrator ruined the audible version. Talked way to fast with terrible inflection and reactions. I will not be listening to the next books in the series.

Couldnt finish

I couldnt get past the 8th chapter. The narrator talked much too fast and something is off with the audio. It just doesnt sound very good. The narrator also sounds like he is just reading the book into a mic rather than really putting on a performance. The story is also boring and much of the writing just isnt good. The dialogue can just be awkward at times and totally unnatural. I'm really surprised this is a series.

Mediocre Story, worse performance

I wanted to like it.

Turning into a dragon in another world? Fun and exciting, yes?

But when everything is rushed with little to no character development, how can you come to care about the story.

There was very little world or system development, it was almost as if the author assumed the reader was experienced in the world already. Or at least litRPG type stories in general (which I am) but it would feel odd to first time readers. There was no development of this specific alt world power system.

His ‘romance’ with the main female character was hyper rushed and seemed based on nothing.

Villains showed up with no development, only to vanish pages later. With little indication of their motivations or anything to make them feel like fully fleshed antagonists. One is even ‘redeemed’ seemingly in the next sentence after declaring that Evan will never win. Evan simply responds with the equivalent of “yes I will” and the villain (apparent compelled to attack) responds with the equivalent of “I believe you can save us.”

And through it all, the audio performances are very over-the-top. Over acted. Lines are delivered with unnecessary emphasis. Accents feel cartoonish at best. It feels like the readers should be reading books for 5-6 year olds. And with one lack luster sex scene, this book clearly isn’t for kids.

This is horrible

I have listened to about 10 minutes and its awful. The story is boring and I could almost endure that but the narration is beyond deplorable. The narrator's pacing is way to fast and he sounds like a student hat has been asked to read aloud in class and wants to get it over with as soon as possible. I am very disappointed that this made it to Audible. Usually the QC people are on the ball but this one slipped through. I am getting a refund.

Decent premise, underdeveloped MC

The premise is interesting enough, if not especially original. Still, I'm a sucker for transported-to-another-world stories, but this story just didn't quite land for me, mostly because of the main character.

The writing for the MC especially could be much better—he's spontaneously over-emotional, an unabashed pervert, and often takes too long to talk himself through to obvious conclusions, I often found myself wishing he would have said anything other than whatever he just said. And the way he is voiced really magnifies the problem. The way the narrator inflects his words and overacts makes the MC sound cringe-worthy any time he wonders about something, has a realization, or gives himself an internal monologue pep-talk. It also frequently sounds like the MC is a child or going through puberty—a story revolving around a full-grown adult becoming a badass dragon takes a bit of a hit when he acts and speaks like a child. It's like he is physically unable to ask a question without blowing his own mind. He speaks with zero maturity, tact, or subtlety, which makes him an aggravating main character to follow.

The female narrator is good, but I honestly don't have much of an impression there because I kept focusing on the male narration and the writing for the protagonist.

If you can enjoy a fun/light otherworld adventure about a guy learning to be a dragon despite the above problems, you can have some fun with this one. I've tried listening to the next book and it looks like the same issues continue after this one, so I'm not sure if I'll be reviewing any more of this series.

Finished the first two books and plan to continue

Update: I finished the 3rd book in the series, and I've now given up. Rather than getting better, the whole thing gets worse. Will try to avoid other titles by this author and the voice acting team.

Can't say that this is a great series so far, but the story line is interesting. Try the sample narration if you are considering the audio book. I find it a little to fast, and prefer to listen at 75%. Can't say whether it's the writing or the voice acting, but it seems overly dramatic most of the time. Plenty of long expositional monologues delivered like speeches. The cover art emphasizes the supposedly erotic aspects, but they are thankfully few in these early books. Some of the cringiest I've encountered.

Great, narration was too fast though

The plot was good, and the overall world building was interesting. Was short but packed enough information to keep it interesting. Just wish the narrators wouldn’t rush to finish
Overall a good read.
