Publisher's Summary

Sean was just waiting for his best friend to show up at the bar so they could play some pool. It came as a shock when the tall blonde man accosted Sean and demanded that he change seats. His refusal would change his life.

When the fight ended, Sean found himself in the strangest meeting of his life. Odin, Archangel Michael, Lucifer, and Morrigan all vied for his soul, each offering different deals. Sean had to choose, so he chose to go with the goddess of Fate, Death, and Battle.

Placed on a new world, gifted with a new body crafted by the gods, and more gifts from other deities of the Tuatha De Danann, Sean now has the chance to live out a new life on a new world. Not everything will be sunshine and roses, however, in this world ruled by the Summer and Winter Queens. He learns quickly that words have power in this world, and that Agreements are binding. 

Sean has his work cut out for finding his place in this new world.

Best female narration I've ever heard

I'll start with the narrator. She is my absolute favorite female narrator, and the only narrator I like more than her is R C Brey. She can do some of the best masculine voices (for her gender), and has a vast array of female voices that are truly unique. 10 out of 10 for narration.

The story is also quite good, however I do have a few gripes. Mostly I just felt the book was either too short or not enough was really happening, there is too much of the same ole same ole. There are also parts I felt could've been shortened greatly and others that I'd like to have seen fleshed out. I'd still like to point out I loved the story and am greatly looking forward to the next. I also like the fact that even though the sex in this book is extremely limited, the author still put a great deal of effort into writing the parts where there is and didn't over or under indulge the audience in it. I'd give the author a 8 of 10.

great book

enjoyed this book thoroughly, I can't wait for book 2 to hit audio soon after it's completion. Mr. Schinhofen has created yet another series that I will be waiting on pins and needles for the next installment.

Don't let the cover art fool you.

Anyone familiar with Daniel Schinhofen or Andrea Parsneau would likely buy this book for that alone. But we all have likely let a cover we weren't enthused about dictate our ultimate decision.

I really enjoyed this book and while I might have made some different decisions at one time or another. I am excited to read the next installment.

Very short

I prefer the first book in a series be longer.

While I find several of the contrivances trite, there's a lot to like. The nature of the MC's gifts is interesting and different, and there's more humor than I expected.

solid story and perdormance, but...

the writing here seems like an editor might have missed a few things on it. i found myself overlooking the grammatical errors in the words just to continue enjoying the book.

Not My Cup of Tea

I wanted to like it. I really did. The book has a great premise and the writing is good, but I gave up on it. For the most part, the MC made be cringe. I just couldn't deal with his personality and his holier than thou attitude. I know it's a fantasy novel, and the MC is suppose to be some knight in shinning armour but I couldn't stop my self from rolling my eyes everytime he opened his mouth. Every interaction with females was structured to remind the reader of his virtuous ideology and emphasize his pure moral character. At first, I was like "ok he's a gentleman",but after 6 hours I was skipping whole dialogue scenes. No one can relate to this MC because he is the perfect gentleman stereotype. The other thing that was driving me nuts was nearly the whole book takes place in one town where the MC mostly chops down trees! There is hardly any progession in the main plot in this book. I feel like I could listen to the first hour of this book and then skip to the sequel.
