Publisher's Summary

The path to the top is never easy...

The title of Serpent King is up for grabs, and Torga's going to need the power it brings to protect his new family. Standing in his way are eight Royal Serpents and a host of shadowy forces who want to manipulate Torga for their own personal gain.

As if that wasn't enough, the jotnar are returning to Asgard, threatening the people Torga swore to protect. He has to become stronger, but will his allies pay the price for his rise to power?

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

Let’s be honest..

This book was a complete hot mess.
(Beware Spoilers below)
1. The story line was completely disjointed. book 1 ended with him a a shell for 10years. In book to they wavered repeatedly between 10years & 18months which is a huge difference imo.
2. Halfway through the author decided to make this a bit more rpg and gave Torga stats, then promptly lost interest in them. Torga evolved multiple times but only had stats to allocate once. By the end of the book his strength & endurance surpassed the previous 500,000+ & were just listed as ‘infinite’ at level 100 meanwhile his wisdom was at like 50???
3. Even though he had previously turned down evolutions for naga, he was randomly allowed to evolve for plot purposes only simply because the author wanted to give him arms. Then halfway through a battle he evolves into a hydra but only has to be in the shell for 10 seconds?
4. While I love Travis Baldree, his narration was not the best here. Many of the voices were barely distinct and a lot of the male xters sounded very similar to Torga which was really confusing. I’ve definitely heard him perform better (see the Cradle series)
5. The power level and size of Torga & some other monsters are so mind boggling that they’ve lost all meaning. Exactly how are we supposed to envision a snake that is thousands of miles long, has his own star and is hundreds of feet tall but can still have conversations and interact easily with much smaller humanoids? Meaningless...

These are just a few of the issues I found with this book. Ive already purchased book 3, so I’m stuck, but if issues like this persist, I’m not certain I’ll continue with the series.

Main story is worse than side ones.

The main character and his story are a bit boring, there's no stakes or anything like that with him, even the litrpg elements don't matter in the slightest, he'll just eat through all his problems. The side characters are much more interesting, like in book one, what sounds more interesting and unique, snake eats problems and threatens all, at sea, or druid and her lupine lover meet unstable serpent at sea and strike a tenuous bargain of protection for their family? In two shortish books the main character has gone from garden snake to his own solar system, and all the non-snake form stuff and adventures over 10 years was skipped, only used for dues ex-ing up why he knows fact a or thing b.

Loved! Loved! Loved It!!!!

Kept on thinking that it was being set up for a third book but so happy that it was wrapped up in this one!! Loved the scene where they finally meet. Was hoping for a more dramatic meeting but it was still good.

A LITRPG of monstrous size

This was really cool. While I listened to it without the first one I was still able to follow along and enjoy. I’m sure I missed some things so I highly recommend getting the first book before listening to the second one. I love LITRPG but I must say this is the first one that I listened to that covered the growth and development of a legendary sized epic boss like creature. He would easily be a high level raid class boss or better. It was well written and well narrated. Enjoy. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

Good Continuation

If you liked the first book, you will like the second. The narrator did a great job, as they did with the first book. Already purchased the next book in series.
