Publisher's Summary

A new Founder marked with otherworldly power. An epic quest to build a sanctum settlement. A fabled class that wields monstrous magic.

The Founders were the first marked, and they used those powers to build kingdoms, subjugate the land, and enrich themselves. They will not suffer another to join their ranks.

Lost in a world with levels, stats, and monsters, Hal fights to survive in an unforgiving land, and to escape execution from its rulers. Ingenuity and courage won’t be enough. With marked powers he doesn’t understand, he’s easy prey for all the goblins, bandits, aberrations, and foul monsters that plague the realm. He’ll need to abandon his humanity by embracing the beast within. To fight monsters, one has to risk becoming a monster...if he can survive long enough to level up.

Freedom and safety cannot be achieved alone. Only by forging bonds with fellow adventurers and monsters alike do Hal and his would-be kingdom have any chance of surviving the hazardous realm.

Beastborne in an isekai litRPG adventure series full of dungeon crawling, spell-slinging action, and deep magic systems.

Echo Audio

Entertaining enough. Audio drove me crazy with its echoing nature which is unfortunate as the narrator was quite good. Logic was not as sound as I'd like. It was hard to completely immerse myself in the story as a result. The author had some cool ideas which made the story entertaining if you are able to overcome the other drawbacks.

Long winded.

it starts to bog down mid book with allot of powers and some other notes I won't spoil. you'll need more patience then I have. this books plot gets more complicated then I like. it's not bad it's just allot of backstory and some other things come to light about the mc that make him more complicated but less interesting in my opinion.

dissapointed

a hodgepodge of fantastical events jammed into a very long book that somehow dont fit together...this book could have been a hit but the author just shoved so many events, powers and different side characters in a small timeframe.

fudging stats

so many stats you could stop a bus with them. constantly repeating entire stats sheets what feels like constantly.

middle of a battle scene? better pause for 10 minutes to go over the ENTIRE STATS SHEET.

story would be a lot more engaging with a lot less STATS and long-winded introspection-that usually revolves entirely around stats.
