Description

Summoned to a world in the midst of apocalypse, Daniel Black would have his hands full just staying alive. Add in refugees, desperate soldiers, scheming nobles and a pair of thoroughly wicked witches, and life is going to be very busy indeed. Good thing he has magic of his own to even the scales. But will even that be enough?

A very good series

It is the only novel with a harem that I enjoy reading, or in this case listening to.

Alright

Like the idea and the story it created. It started pretty strong but fell off a little for me when it started becoming about sex and adventure instead of adventure with a sex scene here and there

The reviews are pretty spot on.

There is a lot of overly sexual content within the book, but it makes sense. I'm not really sure why the negative reviews act like it's misogynistic when a huge part of the book is the time it's in. Basically the main character is a man who is plunged into a magical world and becomes a wizard. He has two women he's charged to protect, one being a witch who took control of a succubus and the other a golem who was made from the essence of Aphrodite. You can understand then why there are quite a few sexual scenes within the book.

I would say that both the plot and the use of sexual content are a little lacking, but it's a fun listen anyway. This isn't a book that's going to make you more intelligent for listening to it, but it will entertain you. If you aren't a fan of erotic themes and a story that mainly targets an open audience that isn't super PC, I don't think you'll have a problem. Again it's a book that you have to take with a grain of salt and not buy into too much of what is said. It's kind of like watching fantasy tv shows and understanding that people don't act as they do in the show.

Great story, not so great performance

Would you try another book from E. William Brown and/or Guy Williams?

Yes I will be reading any book E. William Brown puts out. No it is not likely I will listen to anything else by Guy even if he narrates the next Daniel Black books

What did you like best about this story?

The great story with wonderful and creative magic

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Guy Williams?

Tess Irondale, she was great in Good Intentions and is very good as switching between male and female characters

Do you think Fimbulwinter needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It already has 2 and it looks like its going to get more

Any additional comments?

In my opinion the voices for the main female characters are poorly done and ruined the audiobook for me. If there is no change in narrator or addition of a female narrator then I will not be getting the next books

GIVE ME BOOKS 4, 5, 6, ..... GIVE ME MORE!!!!!!!!

This book was Delicious!!!!!!!!!! I LOVED THIS book and the other 2 on Kindle!!! and as I thought I would, I LOVED THIS BOOK IN AUDIBLE!!!!!!!!!! WHEN AM I GOING TO GET THE REST OF THE BOOKS?!?!?!?!??????!!!!!!!!! I WANT MORE BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like books 4, 5, 6, ... etc. ......
Ok ok, I'll stop with the simple praise and I'll Try to be more technical lol. It's a good story that deals with the analytical part of my brain that wants to explore more worlds and wonder about what would happen if we Truly could do ANYTHING... Oh, and how interesting life could be if we could be if we could explore and grow in such worlds... maybe I'm just greedy lol. I like the hesitant yet growing love, the action scenes, the thoughtful action, the considerations, the desire to grow and protect, ... I simply love the story that I've read and reread on Kindle and I'm both grateful and happy to hear it now on Audible. ^~^ I'm constantly looking on kindle daily for the continuation of the story..... Sir. E. William Brown..... May I PLEASE have some more? ^~^ ^~^ ^~^
I'm also cool with the voice actor. Yes, I wasn't crazy about how he pronounced the female voices at first, especially Avilla, and felt that the main characters voice should've been deeper...BUT!!! I've seen the voices for the females Improved Greatly and I've grown to like and love the voice for the main characteras he is now. ^~^ Give me more and I'll happily buy them ^~^

eye twitching

the book is fine the narrator is God awful he screws up the words constantly he calls a goblin shaman a goblin summon he also screws up Ragnarok don't get me even started on his voice for the women I recommend if you do listen to this book speed up the voice to 1.15 or 20 it helps a little sometimes I wish Audible has a control system where I can change the voice pitch but like I said the book is great or fine read it don't listen to it unfortunately I got a moron

If you like Gorean novels then you'll really enjoy

The story is a fun fantasy with a very detailed magic system, plenty of sex and misogyny (more about this) and some great rpg gamer inside jokes.
Most reviews for this book are focused on the mysogyny and unrealistic female characters. If John Norman's Gor novels offended you then don't read this book. It really is that simple.

Unfortunately the narrator is not currently a good fit for a book with so many female voices. He could learn from some transgender voice training videos and apps. i belive he can overcome this hurdle with a few months effort. Otherwise the narration was fine.

The narration may detract from the story at times but I think both the author and narrator could grow together with some effort.

Totally delightful!!

This book is like a guys mid life crisis fantasy come to life! It's the most entertaining book I've ever read! As a woman in menopause, I can honestly say that life sucks & books & fantasy rock & this wonderful universe where Hecates wizard is kicking ass taking names righting wrongs and having incredible sex is a place I'd like to land in!
