Publisher's Summary

Betrayed by his own kind, King Belial loses everything: His wife, his newborn, and his kingdom. When offered a chance at revenge by the mischievous twin Goddesses Enmu and Enma, he willingly takes it. The deal is simple, at least for them. Belial gets to be reincarnated into a vessel of their choosing and offered free reign on how to go about getting his revenge, however, there is a catch. The one thing the two want from him is simple: Take humanity down a notch. Or two. 

This novel contains the following elements: Dark fantasy, reincarnation, crunchy LitRPG/GameLit, Town building, foul language, lots of visceral battles, both small and large scale, character progression, and more....

Well written for a 12 year old.

The innumerable grammatical errors and consistently inconsistent phrasing, together with more plot holes than all three of the Disney Star Wars films combined and an MC wearing so much plot armour he must surely count as an immovable object make this one of the worst audio books I've ever suffered through.

The phrasing is similar to a poorly translated Japanese light novel for what it's worth. I've heard better dialogue from one of those random English speaking characters in an anime.

The story is all together something different. At no point did I ever have the sense that the author had the slightest inkling as to what he was planning. The story goes from miracle to cataclysm to another miracle, so on and so forth. The MC's fate shifts almost as often as his mood. He goes from joking with this companions to cursing their joviality in less than a breath. It might have made for an interesting plot device, the MC's deteriorating humanity could have fueled some actual character development, instead he just seems unintentionally mentally unstable.

Take it from me and give this one a pass.

meh

The MC is always getting what he needs right when he needs it. The female voices hurt my brain.

Frustrating

A lot of potential, I was very interested in the description and beginning. Fell apart slowly as things went from novel to cringe-inducing.

So...

Let's start with the positives:
1. They pack a lot of story in, so unlike some books where it takes forever for things to happen, not true here.
2. I do still want to know what happens later.
But...
1. There is a disconnect in the story sometimes, like they left a sentence or two out, and then added it at the end of what happened. Don't want to get into specifics but you'll notice it as you go through the story.
2. There is so much of this that doesn't make sense, or is just plain not logical, from events to motivations, etc. Turned the positive of them packing a lot of story into the book (which is normally great) into me checking how much longer till the book was over.
So...while I do sort of want to know what happens next, that's not enough for me to get the next book.

save me during the flu!

I was not expecting this book to be very good, but i must say that i marathon-ed it straight through whilst home sick with the flu. It was a fun listen and i love MCs that i get to watch lose their humanity. I will defiantly be getting the next book in this series when it is available on Audible and i am currently looking through the other titles by this author. I was on edge most of this book waiting for it to devolve into borderline pornography, but it never did, it stuck to what it was doing and i loved it, sure there is lovey dovey stuff but even that didn't bug me. I'm still upset about the ogre though, i am hoping to see him again later on!

the narrator's male voices and Stat descriptions were good he really needs someone else to do female voices because they were absolutely horrible and it wasn't helped by the authors pitiful dialogue for rust the combat was so badly written it was hard to follow this is one of the worst litrpg books I've listened to yet

suffers from first draft syndrom

while the story was not terrible it could have done with a few more drafts.

Not good at all.

This is a mess. The story clumsy and uninteresting. It was like listening to some excited thirteen year old kid describe a bad D&D campaign at a coffee shop.
Worse was how the narrator voiced the character 'Rust'. His 'girl' voice was so annoying I had to turn off the story after ~2 hours.
Im completely at a loss how this got 5 star reviews.

His range is amazing, however....

Although his voice has amazing range in octives, they should have someone else do the more feminine voices. It has an amazing story but it is major cringe especially the romantic scenes.

Worth the listen

Love the book, can’t wait for the next one. It was chaotic at the beginning and hard to follow but definitely worth the time to stick in there till the end. It picks up pace and just plows through to a epic book.
