Forgot itself

Everything that made the first book awesome is absent here. All the good side characters are neglected and left behind early for a boring torga centered book. And the whole story ends up an uninteresting dragon hunt and time skip. Constant ridiculous escalation and oversaturation of enemies. Every other chapter is a new God level enemy with no resolution. What I hoped to be a solid trilogy is clearly intended to be one of those 10 book slogs but the pacing is screwed as the mc has already reached their lvl 100 God tier 10. There's no fun or suspense in the fights as he's no longer fighting with allies and he's got plot armor making him immortal even when his arrogance should lead to his death. Lastly I was able to forgive stealing the world tree myth for the books but adding in asgard, Thor and a huge chunks of norse myth feels cheap. The books aren't that long some extra pages to flesh out your own unique world tree and mythologies would be better then piggie backing on a trending culture.

I appreciate that reuniting wasn't drawn out over the whole series, with a bunch of near "almost" meetings. I hate that so much and would have put a big damper on the series as a whole for me. So to the author i thank you, and to the reader of the next book cost me 50 with no option to use a credit I'd do it.

Loved it but ...

It was an awesome story and a great conclusion but most of those interludes were pointless as was the random shifts in POV. It should have remained on Torga 100% of the time since I skipped over it and had no problem understanding the story. But only a minor inconvenience which is why I still rated it a fine. Travis Bladree was great as usual.

It’s too short

I really enjoyed the book I just really wish There was more he makes progress but as soon as he reaches a goal that we’ve been wanting him to read for a while the book ends and it’s annoying as heck because I want to see more interactions between those two characters

Fun & Fast Paced Continuation

Book 2 of the "A Snake's Life" series is fun, fast-paced and lets you continue rooting for the anti-hero. Many of the characters, even the nomial "good guys" aren't necessarily nice or good people, but they are relatable and believable. The last few chapters seem to go rather quickly and the end feels a bit abrupt, but as this is not the last book in the series I am sure that the next book will pick up where this left off and bring even more of Torga and his family's stories.

Gosh I wish it was longer

I hounestly really enjoyed this book I listens to it right after the first and it Elias just everything I ever want In a book I loved the protagonist and I licked his goal for his wife the only thing that really brought me down was the language was a bit simple and I feel like there were a few parts where the author could have worded it better but the overall story I loved and it dosent take away from the experience that being said I absolutely need another book it takes me so long to find a series to get into and I can’t have it end just like that

Not as good as the first

after listening to the first book in this series, I was really excited for this one to come out. while listening to it, I found it hard to keep my attention on the story. this one just seemed like it was reaching. I found the plot lines to be pretty thin as well.
I will definitely be reading reviews before purchasing a third book in this series

Well that escalated quickly

And I thought he gained power a little too fast in the 1st book in this 1 he just went from 0-100 real quick skipping over a lot of evolution's and stuff. But I am glad he managed to find who he was looking for. There were a few minor plot points I had an issue with but nothing too serious mostly revolving Around how the sub world works and the time difference. Overall this book Was a good read And I'm hoping to read more in the future

what was that

I wasn't the greatest fan of the first book but some of the ideas it had where interesting enough to get me to buy this one. boy do I regret that. this book is weird first there's a pretty big time skip at the start of the book then several important things happen but are never really addressed, after which the main character does a stupid evil thing and then buggers off. seriously it's very frustrating. this is all without mentioning that at some point in the time skip he seems to have forgotten what his original goal was, a goal which had previously leaf yo some of the only interesting parts of the first book, in point of fact some of the events in this book made a decent chunk of the first book pretty redundant.

over all it's a basic ass power fantasy with rediculous power scaling and a main character who would be a way better bad guy. I would waste my time and will be returning both books as this is ruined an enjoyment I found in the first
