Publisher's Summary

Sean discovered that words do indeed have power, and agreements are binding in this world, where the Queens of the Fey rule.

Fleeing the burning village of Oakwood, with Feline Moonbound pursuing them, Sean, Fiona Mithrilsoul, and Myna Mooncaller will have to find a way to coexist as they cross the wilds to distance themselves from the atrocities behind them.

The uncertainty of what will come constantly gnaws at Sean. Fiona is with him, now bonded for ten years, but Myna has been life bonded to him. Trying to sort out his mixed-up feelings, Sean worries what might happen with the woman he loves and the friend he pulled back from death’s door.

(This work contains adult situations, that some might find offensive, not least of which is graphic sex. This audiobook is about an overpowered MC, and contains a harem, you’ve been warned).

feels like the book doesn't progress the story

I really enjoyed the first book but this second one was tough to get through. It feels like this book makes no progress in moving the story forward. The main characters whining about his relationships with his life bonded is painful to hear but that is a large part of the story.

awful dense MC

The MC was unbearable to listen to. He acts like he hates everything including his "women" himself the world ect.. He has absolutely no respect anything the women say. He treats them as if they have no agency or opinions and then hypocritically hates everyone else for the same thing. The only positive he talks about how great some guy he used to know is. I just kept thinking the MC is gay and hates women. DNF

Waste of time and money

Schinhofen managed to ruin another series with the same exact kink he has had in his other books.

literally. it goes like this. MC struggles to accept banging more than one women. Accepts doing this. Likes it. Then the entire book is just the author describing food. The MC complaining about his feelings in his head "woe is me, why can't I be more like my best friend". Let's listen women #1's problem tonight. describe some food. listen to women #2's problem the next night. drink tea.x100

The characters are basically copy pasted from his last horrible harem novel. the book goes no where! this series is crap.

Daniel. just mail order 2 brides. one with a somewhat Scottish accent and another with an Asian bloodline to live your fantasies so your readers don't have to keep listening about it.

this book is not fun.

MC is an idiot.
more 3/4's of the book is the bonded women convincing him to accept the situation while he complains and whines about everything.

it's too bad, I really wanted it to be good.

Another great book in the series

This book was just as good if not better then the first. I'm hoping the series keeps going strong.

3hrs in and it feels like nothing has happened

First off, round of applause for Andrea Parsneau. At this point I think she is in my top 5 narrators at this point. It's too bad she can't save this book.

Now, the story its self is boring. There isn't a clear destination for our protagonists, so I can't tell how close I am to something happening. There isn't a clear objective, which makes me feel like the author doesn't know what he wants to happen. Finally, the dialogue circles...

(minor spoilers)

...there are three topics for our trio, dont call me master, I miss james, and I dont want to sleep with you. There was a moment that could have been interesting but they say nope and go down river.

Great series

I really enjoy this author and while I have seen better cover art, at least it looks like it is of the characters in this book. Too many times I have seen cover art that was disconnected from the actual book. A great second book for this series and I am excited to continue this story.

The main character is too wishy washy!

Alright, the first book was ok, this book however, the MC is way to inconsistent. First though, STOP TALKING ABOUT JAMES!!!! The book isn't about him, and it feels like multiple times a chapter the MC bemoans not being with/like/straight up James!!!!! Don't mention a non-character so much! Second, the MC seems to make determinations on what he will do and how he will act, then COMPLETELY BACKTRACKS. The issue is that it happens constantly. In the span of a couple of pages he decides he won't be like anime MCs who have multiple women who want him and won't act on it then immediately whines about multiple women wanting him and AGREEING ITS OK! Then he talks about hating how nobles act and decrying how the world works under the rule of the queens and nobles, yet patently states over and over how he doesn't want to do anything related to them. Dude is superman, hates how the powers that be operate, and instead of saying "yeah I'll go ahead and free everyone from oppression" he hides and even pretends to be a noble, scaring people along the way, so he can remain unknown. Dude is weak-willed, indecisive, obsessed with James, and essentially a liar to himself and others about how he will act.

story is ok but the MC is a really downer

OK on the story I enjoyed it. But the main character cries way too much. He has two women who want him but he thinks about his buddy James more which makes me wonder if he prefers guys over women. He stops two different 3 ways and then thanks about his buddy James. Truthfully I believe the author should just drop all the sex scenes. Make them fade to black and focus on story. Keep the romance vague because all his main characters can't handle anything. Really enjoyed the narrator she was very good.

Where is the Story??

Truly enjoyed the first book, and this one was decently written, but there was no plot development. This entire book was about their travel and the growing relationship of the MC, but there were no real challenges to overcome and just a few weak enemies fought here and there. Where is the character character development and growth. In the first novel the MC grew progressively, learning new skills and talents, in which this novel was just completely lacking. It honestly left me with the question “Is that it, nothing happened?” Even the ending had me saying “What? That was the end of the novel?” As it reads like the end to a bad chapter, and seemed as if it were still in the middle of the book. Very disappointing.

Andrea Parsneau’s performance was great however, though I wish she had had more to work with.
