Call them outcasts, call them savages - they've been called worse, by their own mothers - but Jackal is proud to be a Grey Bastard. He and his fellow half-orcs patrol the barren wastes of the Lot Lands, spilling their own damned blood to keep civilized folk safe. A rabble of hard-talking, hog-riding, whore-mongering brawlers they may be, but the Bastards are Jackal's sworn brothers, fighting at his side in a land where there's no room for softness.

It's a well though out story and definetly worth the price. The latter half of the story in particular, once you get used to the unfairness of the world and the story pieces start coming together, was very enjoyable to listen to.

The main character was a bit too thick headed for my taste, and I don't get why he became so attached to the elf girl so fast, but that didn't take away from the story.

The story is enthralling. I found myself liking the characters and the conclusion was a long, well executed climax. The most annoying detail was the voice chosen for the main character, definitely an acquired taste.

The book is very expensive though for the short length and I wouldn't recommend it unless it's on a steep discount or money is something you've got in spades. I get that litrpgs in general tend to be shorter novellas, but still, wait for a discount.

Very powerful ending. It started slow but the story progresses faster and faster towards a strong conclusion. I would recommend reading the Bobiverse series first to get a number of small references.

The novel ended by leaving the listener with some tantalizing details to consider. The story overall is very good. for the most part the narrator does a great job, the only issue is his range is a bit limited resulting in a number sounding the same.

while waiting for the sequel I Plan on picking up the short story about Auri. can't wait for the sequel.

The Earth is under siege - and no one knows about it because the invaders erase those whom they consume. A handful of men and women stand on the border between the mundane and the magical. They have a special spark of soul - not quite enough to be naturally gifted in spellcraft but greater than the average person, a tiny flame that can ignite incredible potential. They possess the ability to fight back against the Vorid: the ability to become a Contractor.

I bought this book on a whim since I had a few credits to spend. Was pleasantly surprised to find the book was actually quite remarkable. The character development of the two girls is very well done. While the narrator is quite good, he used the same, or nearly the same, voice for multiple characters. It would have been nice to see a greater range of voices.

Looking forward to the sequel.

Or can it? Gunnar still has a lot to learn about his massive, new world. Deception can come when you least expect it, and in Eden's Gate, sometimes you can lose control of your own fate.

The story of the sands was refreshing break from the forests and plains of the first two novels in the series. It felt a bit amateurish though the way parts of the story were written, in particular his reasoning for blaming the elf princess. The side characters though really help the story come to life. They are all quite multi dimensional and no one does anything that seems unusual for their character type. #Audible1

If you enjoyed the first book then you'll enjoy this one as well, I certainly did. If you weren't a big fan though of book one then this work will not convince you. The narration is still on point and the story does evolve in some interesting directions but it's all just more of the same. Nothing was unexpected, nothing was surprising, and the main character is just getting closer and closer to great power. #Audible1

The story has a unique premise for a litrpg novel, setting it apart from other works like Eden's Gate or Sword Art. The author writes the main character Richter with a very cavalier style that is addicting to listen to. The narrator though is what makes me prefer the audiobook to the ebook, his performance is stellar and sound effects are well used.
