Publisher's Summary

Morgan's life is not easy. Growing up on the streets of City Four, he is constantly shunned by the other citizens. Morgan doesn't mind being ignored. What he does mind, though, are the constant beatings from the city guards due to his friendship with Sarah, the city lord's only daughter. Lord Simon wants him dead, but the laws of the kingdom are on Morgan’s side and even the guards won't kill him, just for being seen near his manor.

Morgan’s time is running out, though. Lord Simon has deep pockets and his last visit to the manor may just have put him over the edge. Worse, he is nearing his 16th birthday, and has yet to awaken any abilities. In a world where might makes right, he has never been one of the mighty. What will he do when faced with a life altering decision and just how will his decision impact those around him?

Warning: This book contains profanity, gore, and content that may not be suitable for children.

i loved it

This was a very good audiobook. The protagonist was super dense, and a couple of the characters were one dimensional, but that did nothing to get in the way of the story and excellent world building world building.

Decent story with terrible writing

I got about 2 hours in before I refunded this book. I'm not usually that critical when it comes to writing, but this is high school level at best. The character doesn't need to explain that he "felt something stab him". Show don't tell, get an editor, or at least have people beta read.

I've never heard this narrator before, and I understand that the material was probably difficult to read aloud, but voices were all the same tone and inflection the entire time. Boring to listen to.

I honestly don't understand what other people enjoyed about the book enough to rate it 4+ stars, but everyone is entitled to their opinions.

The premise is decent and with cleaner writing it could be good, but in its current state it's just not worth picking up

Mostly good.

I enjoyed this book. The narrator is pretty good, though some voices sound very similar. My main grievance that I have with this book that was never justified is the unbelievable level of ignorance and naivete of the MC. He is a 16 year old boy who grew up as an orphan on the streets and he doesnt know what sex is. Every time a woman flirts or makes a move he acts like he has no idea what they are doing. He doesnt even grasp what rape is. It's such a dumb mechanic to use it actually detracts from the story. Even if he had never even heard of the opposite sex, his hormone addled teenage body would react to an attractive female flirting and touching him. I'm just blown away that the author took it as far as he did to try and make the MC seem unlearned and naive.

Very enjoyable, exited for book 2

This book had what I feel a lot of litrpg are missing, and that's a good plot. It showed me who the characters were and what they are willing to do. I could have done without the abusive side character, but I understand why he was there.

The narrator was fine. Some of the female characters started to sound the same, but the guy nailed some of the other voices.

skipped content and shallow character development

Throughout the entire book opportunities to increase the development and depth of the story and characters within are skipped over.

the author seemed rushed to force out half a$$ed product.

Really good

Neat and interesting what I have to say about this book. The characters are pretty good but could use a bit more depth to them but they are reasonable enough. The system of development is the most interesting aspect though and was enthralled with that part because of how unique it was. The fights were good and the narration was well done

A poor imitation of "Dante's Immortality"

This book was a struggle for me. It followed Dante's Immortality's plot very closely but fall's short in character development/behavior and the world feels dull. You might like the book more if you haven't read the other one. Out of 400+ audio books this the first time I felt compelled to write a review.

Amazing

I loved this and cant wait for the next book to come out. the rest of this can be ignored as audible just wants a word minimum for these reviews.
