Publisher's Summary

The Beginning After the End: Publisher's Pack contains books 1 and 2 of The Beginning After the End series. 

Early Years, book one:

I never believed in the whole “light at the end of the tunnel” folly where people, after having a near-death experience, would startle awake in a cold sweat exclaiming, “I saw the light!” But there I was, in this so-called “tunnel” facing a glaring light, when the last thing I remembered was sleeping in my room - the royal bed-chamber, as others called it. Had I died? If so, how?

King Grey once benefited from unrivaled strength, wealth, and prestige in a world governed by martial ability but now finds himself reborn in a society dominated by magic. Given a second chance at life, the once-king strives to understand his role in this new world and the purpose of his reincarnation while correcting the mistakes of his past.

New Heights, book two:

I had a family now, I had people who loved me. It was a feeling I never wanted to give up. I’d treasure it, fight for it if I had to...and for that, I needed to better myself. More so even than when I had been a king.

Given a second chance at life, Arthur Leywin wishes above all to grow strong enough to protect his family, as the memory of his cold and disconnected past life as King Grey still haunts him. To this end, Arthur adopts the persona of the masked adventurer, Note, and delves into the dungeons under the forbidding Beast Glades. On his adventures, Arthur discovers a strange magical blade that responds to the dragon’s will inside him, befriends a powerful young conjurer whose past is shrouded in mystery, and battles the deadly Elderwood Guardian. Yet all his efforts might prove for naught when Arthur makes an enemy of a talented conjurer from a very powerful family, putting his very future at risk.

Mana cultivation tale

It’s so hard to find good cultivation tales. It’s not the whole story but adds a flavour I loved. I want more!!!

Amazing read!

A story that reels you in? No problem! Cliffhangers that have you on the edge of your seat? I barely hang on! Emotions that have you feeling the way the characters do? Well, I could power a waterwheel... The story that follows the adventures of our protagonist are ones that you would regret missing!

Hopefully you can enjoy this story just as much as I do!

Keep up the amazing works TurtleMe!

Wonderful Story and Narrator

I wasn't expecting much when I bought it, but became immediately. Great story, great narrator, absolutely worth the money.

Fans of the Jobless Reincarnation story will love this immensely.

I enjoyed this story quite a bit.

Alright, first I'll start off by saying there's really only one thing I wasn't a huge fan of in this book. A couple of times in this story portions of the MC's life are kind of just glossed over. i.e. a year goes by and not much is said about it. Now i get why the author does it this way, I mean you can't write about every day of the MC's life considering how many years this story spans but I still would have liked to see a bit more of those gaps in time.
Otherwise I liked just about everything else, the cultivation was good, lots of progression, the fight scenes were interesting, the story's not to short and I always like Travis Baldree's narrations. All in all I'd say this book was well worth the credit.

I love every second of this book! I need more!

I love every second of this book, the narration was amazing, but i had to slow it down to 90% to fully enjoy and digest the information.

i love the MC's progression, his thoughts on life, training, and his family. it was wholesome, fantastic, funny, and brought tears to my eyes on some occasions. He's just a guy living a new life, trying to protect his family.

I read the manga, and was pleasantly surprised on how much detail was missed on the manga. The book goes on to detail everything i have missed and much more. I also love the fact that there are no harem elements anywhere in this book like other books like this (manga, fantasy, or litrpg books).

I don't know what more to say, but this book is absolutely amazing and i can't wait for the next installments. Please! let me have some more!

Let's hear it for intelligent main characters!

Can we have more? Don't get me wrong, I do not want MCs who know everything. I just want them to be NOT stupid. And more female supporting characters who are not all swooning and fainting all over the place.
This was an excellent book. I tried hard not to consume it all at once but I could not stop listening. I wanted action, adventure, intrigue, humor, endearment... and this delivered it all in spades.
My only gripe is the time jumps, but that is very minor. Not everyone wants to get bogged down in the weeds with the 'slice of life' genre. But if any character could enthrall you with the day to day minutia it would be this guy; He would be calculating optimal mana densities and plotting to overthrow the royal family while flossing...
Please buy and share. This is well worth your time and credit.

Fun, but needs work.

Fun, ridculous, contrived, a bit shallow, but a good time nonetheless. The basic concept of the main character Is what kept me engaged, reincarnation, is something I never thought I would enjoy in my fantasy novels. But it introduces some fun encounters, and allows the protagonist to act intelligently beyond his age.
If u don't think too much about some of the systems and plots , and enjoy the ride, it's worth the credit for the publishers pack. I will likely purchase the next book in print for a fun light hearted read.

YOU WILL REGRET NOT GETTING THIS BOOK! This book hit every point I usually look for in an overpowered mc. Great detail and story flows. Only disappointment is that I have to wait for the next books come out!

Good read for children.

I made it through it but just couldn't get lost in the book. It was just missing something and i couldn't suspend my disbelief. It'd be a good listen for 10 to 12 year olds or someone who likes this style. it's just not for me and won't continue with the series if more become available.

Recommend 100% worth a credit!

Do you like reincarnation books? Do you like magic /martial arts books? If yes then this book is for you.

It knows what it wants to be and does it amazingly good.

Hope book 3 and 4 won't take a long time to arrive on audible.

10/10 from me so far.

Why it this so highly rated?

Boring. There is no conflict. Everything he does is perfect. He makes all the "right" choices. Nothing about the MC was interesting. He doesn't struggle for anything and everything is handed to him. I listened to the whole thing waiting for something to happen because there has to be a reason it has so many 5 star reviews. Disappointing.

Splendide

A really good fantasy book. Easy to follow in this form (the most problematic thing I stumbble when listening to audiobooks). If you like fantasy, and reincarnation stories with OP MC, don't search any further :)
