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.

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.

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.

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.

Epic Gamelit Adventure!

Good story and narration!

MC's buddy invites him to hang out at a bar, and while Sean is waiting for his buddy to show up, a stranger picks a fight with him. Stuff happens, and gods compete for his sole (turns out he got killed by Thor). Choosing his deity, Sean gets transported to a world with game mechanics with abilities and a body crafted by a pantheon - free from commitments, but with the hope that he can right a distant wrong. Gamer shenanigans ensue...

I loved this book! I can't wait for more!

Note:
This story is Haram Gamelit - this genera often contains explicit scenes

A fantastic book and interesting world

I really enjoyed the the world and characters in this book. i am so excited to have the chance to read a book with Irish mythology ties to it along with others.
The world is very interesting and how the magic works is equally so. I hope to learn much more as the series continues.
the reader is fantastically talented as always. I have listened to a few other books she has read but she really blows this one out of the water.

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.

Irish myth and legend FTW!

I love the Irish mythology so this book was a fun read. There were times that the main character seemed not to have knowledge I thought he should have...he knows of the Tuatha Dé Danann but seemed to not know of dyrads or the Faerie court. It was a minor issue though as the story was very well done and flowed well. I look forward to reading more of this series.

Don't judge a book by its cover!

I have not been impressed by the artwork on these books. That said, it is the ONLY thing I have not been impressed by. This book and the two following books have become one of my favorite series. I like the characters, the pace. I love them. There are a very few cringey parts, but easily skipped over. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in this genre.
