It Was Alright

Very standard, typical. Not a whole lot of new, but decent nonetheless. It certainly got a lot better nearer to the end, but it wasn't necessarily bad nor amazing at any point.

Gets better

The first half of the book is a bit rough however it does get quite a bit better once the demons and other NPC type characters are fleshed out and you start seeing different perspectives. Overall satisfying but only if you put at least 7 hours into it

Edit: After listening to the second book I can say that it is similar in tone to the later parts of this book and has been worth putting in the time as a listener. Updated start rating to 4 after a reread.

My favourite series

I listen to a ton of books while at work and I’ve never found a better series than this. At the time of this review there are 5 books out and they are all gold.

Do you like tons of action and bloodshed and dislike a book getting too into plot? This is the book for you

Worth a Listen

While I will say I was often cringing a little at the beginning of the book I became quite enthralled by the end. There where some questionable word choices and sentences in the beginning. While the words didn't always mesh well together it drastically improved as the book progressed along with all subsequent books. If I had to take a guess I'd say the author found their stride and stopped overthinking things.

I've listened up until book four at this point and am quite pleased with the author and narrator. Both have done a wonderful job keeping the book entertaining. Keep up the good work guys!

Enjoyed it a lot

Since this book is the set up for the series it started a little slow as you got to understand the situation, the system and how it would affect earth and Zach.

Over all it was well paced, didn’t treat you like a complete idiot and didn’t get too deep into the mechanics, but deep enough you understand the power bands.

Would like to see a little more secondary character development, but honestly you can see it start to take shape at the end of the book, so I feel book 2 will get into it more.

For this style of book, if you like lit rpg/system style series, then it should appeal to you.

An interesting story that hints at much more to come

It’s a good story, very little of it is the main character talking at this point though I’m sure we will see the perspective shift. I love the hints at an endless multiverse immeasurable in size and population. I look forward to exploring it throughout the series. The voice acting suffers from something that drives me nuts, when all of the characters sound sullen or snotty or dumb. None of the characters get a voice that isn’t brittle or sullen sounding like a child even though they are older. It’s as if any voice but the narrators own narration voice ends up being cartoonish, nasally or like some classically portrayed 80’s TV sitcom nerd. I’m not throwing the narration out with the bath water, he has some good qualities including his narration voice and I hope the vocal performance settles down in upcoming books since I don’t think every single main character voice needs to be move up in register from the narration voice. But I trust the narrator and the narration is solid and clear, pleasant even. I find most narration undergoes an evolution through a series so I’ll hope for the same here.

An interesting premise

This story is a very interesting one and if you like to see the main character gain more and more power without it being boring and repetitive I recommend you try this story.
