Publisher's Summary

Evan was just an average guy working as an EMT, but when he puts on an ancient dragon mask, he’s teleported to the magical world of Inati as a powerful black dragon.
 

Now, he’ll have to save a beautiful priestess, rebuild a broken city, and fight a horde of zombie-like monsters led by an ancient demonic evil.
 

If he wins, then the opportunity to build his powers, treasure horde, and empire will await him. If he loses, then his new friends will all suffer fates worse than death.

Fastest Reader Ever

Super disappointed. I was looking forward to this book coming to audible as Eric usually has some of the best performers for his books. This one, however, sounds like they recorded it then speed it up to 1.5x regular speed. Even when I slow it down, they still are reading it to fast for me to enjoy. Not sure if it was an accident with the upload or what but would like to see it fixed.

Narrator too fast!

The narrator was way too fast and sounds drunk if you try to slow it down. Don't waste your money, this was poorly done on a good story.

MC is rough shot, and not thought out well

The MC comes off as a 16yr old in the body of a 25yr old EMT. The reactions, the way he talks, the way he acts, and the mannerisms do not fit the character description and the backstory. This is essentially a grown man whose made it to be an EMT and the life experiences that come with it, but when the character comes off as a some weird mix of child and adult that doesn't mix well. Then you throw in the fact that he is now a dragon and the character motivations that go with that don't mix well. I don't think it was well thought, or at least enough...

I understand that Eric Valls books have a particular genre in mind/target audience of which I would put myself in. On top of that the speed at which Eric pumps books out is incredible but unfortunately I think in this case haste to make quantity resulted in wasted quality. Disappointing...

Narration was terrible!

The story was pretty good and I am usually a big fan of Vall. Unfortunately the narrator ruined the audible version. Talked way to fast with terrible inflection and reactions. I will not be listening to the next books in the series.

Mediocre Story, worse performance

I wanted to like it.

Turning into a dragon in another world? Fun and exciting, yes?

But when everything is rushed with little to no character development, how can you come to care about the story.

There was very little world or system development, it was almost as if the author assumed the reader was experienced in the world already. Or at least litRPG type stories in general (which I am) but it would feel odd to first time readers. There was no development of this specific alt world power system.

His ‘romance’ with the main female character was hyper rushed and seemed based on nothing.

Villains showed up with no development, only to vanish pages later. With little indication of their motivations or anything to make them feel like fully fleshed antagonists. One is even ‘redeemed’ seemingly in the next sentence after declaring that Evan will never win. Evan simply responds with the equivalent of “yes I will” and the villain (apparent compelled to attack) responds with the equivalent of “I believe you can save us.”

And through it all, the audio performances are very over-the-top. Over acted. Lines are delivered with unnecessary emphasis. Accents feel cartoonish at best. It feels like the readers should be reading books for 5-6 year olds. And with one lack luster sex scene, this book clearly isn’t for kids.

Couldnt finish

I couldnt get past the 8th chapter. The narrator talked much too fast and something is off with the audio. It just doesnt sound very good. The narrator also sounds like he is just reading the book into a mic rather than really putting on a performance. The story is also boring and much of the writing just isnt good. The dialogue can just be awkward at times and totally unnatural. I'm really surprised this is a series.

This is horrible

I have listened to about 10 minutes and its awful. The story is boring and I could almost endure that but the narration is beyond deplorable. The narrator's pacing is way to fast and he sounds like a student hat has been asked to read aloud in class and wants to get it over with as soon as possible. I am very disappointed that this made it to Audible. Usually the QC people are on the ball but this one slipped through. I am getting a refund.

Narrator talks to fast. MC acts like a Perv.

I like the story line, however the MC acts like he has never seen a woman before. The narrator talks like he's getting paid to speak as fast as he can.. had to lower the speed to 85%...

Cool series 😎

Really enjoyed the story and that it took most of the book before the MC slept with his Interest.

Narration-wise, I think the Narrators could play around a bit more with expressing the character's emotions.

Looking forward to hearing the next books.

more like dragon disappointment.

when I read that the mc was turned into a powerful black dragon; I was expecting some awe inspiring scenes.
what I got was an idiot fumbling around like bambi on ice in pitch darkness.
I have not been this didappointed in a book for as long as I can remember. The performance was lack luster aswell.

The voice for when he is in human form and dragon form is the same squeeling voice, I was half expecting a voice crack at times. The female voices are good though.

The mc does not even try flying until the book is nearly over, even then he can't land. His breath attack is a glitterbomb healing, and he does not try to do anything else. All he is; is a horny, fumbling, idiot that is incapable of doing anything worthwhile.

Just disappointed.
