Publisher's Summary

Tobias Kaya doesn't care about The Savior. He doesn't care that She's the ruler of the realm or that She purified the land, and he certainly doesn't care that She's of age to be married. But when competing for Her hand proves to be his last chance to save his family, he's forced to make The Savior his priority.

Now Tobias is thrown into the Sovereign's Tournament with nineteen other men, and each of them is fighting - and killing - for the chance to rule at The Savior's side. Instantly, his world is plagued with violence, treachery, and manipulation, revealing the hidden ugliness of his proud realm. And when his circumstances seem especially dire, he stumbles into an unexpected romance, one that opens him up to unimaginable dangers and darkness.

Trigger warnings: this book contains graphic violence, foul language, and sexual situations.

Great story, AMAZING narrator!!

This is a fun, interesting, fast paced and intense fantasy story that I LOVE!!!!!! I never listen to an audiobook of a book I’ve already read but fell absolutely in love with Nick’s voice, he nailed the ENTIRE thing!!!! I don’t think I’ve ever listened to someone bring a book to life like this!

This book was an EXPERIENCE

I have such a hard time listening to audiobooks because so often the voices drive me bananas, but the narrator choice for TSC is perfection. Honestly, Nick could read a grocery list and I would listen, but it’s a million times better because he’s telling a story that I love with my whole heart. I’ve already read The Savior’s Champion several times, so I went into the audiobook with high expectations. It was a pleasant surprise that it felt like an entirely fresh story in audiobook form. Nick is an A+ narrator and I loved absolutely everything he brought to it. The voices, the emotion, the skill! It just all coalesced into a truly enjoyable time for me. Of course as important as the narrator is, they are nothing without the story they’re telling, and hot damn does Jenna tell a good one XD In every form I’ve consumed this story I’m just yanked along on this rollercoaster ride. I go through the full spectrum of human emotion on a regular basis with this story. My live tweeting while listening is proof of this LOL. It’s just all so incredibly satisfying. The romance, the deaths, THE INTRIGUE!! I am 1000% into it and I recommend this book to everyone. The romance is way too cute and it’s healthy!!! God do I wish those were more common, but it’s here and that’s what matters. Tobias and Leila are serious OTP with tons of respect and love and all the sexy feelings. The deaths are both heartbreaking and so, so satisfying. Two in particular are my absolute favourite, but I’m not going to spoil. Jenna is crazy talented and I’m impatiently awaiting her next book (and next audiobook). My fave voices are Diccus and Rosebud (wait for them, you’ll see why). My fave scenes from the book were just as epic while I listened as they were when I was reading. I don’t know how to put into words how those scenes make me feel listening to them, but imagine me as that gif of elmo with arms raised and flames in the background. IT’S SO GOOD AND YOU NEED IT. I didn’t know I needed audiobooks until now XD I have no complaints. I had a great time from beginning to end and I would recommend it to anyone.

Story Didn't Have To Be This Long

This is one of those stories in which I found myself sighing in exasperation, because the lead female character has an obvious secret--and if she had revealed it earlier on in the book, a lot of people would not have suffered and/or died. She doesn't reveal the secret until the very end, and her reasoning for being secretive is pretty weak, when compared to the loses that result from the secret.

The reader can figure out her secret pretty early in the book, which makes the lead male character look a little dim witted, since he somehow keeps missing all the clues.

I think I'd have a more positive impression, had the book been shorter. It was one thing to be annoyed by the lengthy reveal, but it was definitely exacerbated by the multiple teaser scenes. She'd announce that she has a secret, he'd, say, "what is it?" But instead of revealing it, she'd waver about how she was worried about his reaction... then they'd get distracted, and I'd yell, "AW, COME ON! NOT AGAIN! JUST TELL HIM YOUR DAMN SECRET!"

The story isn't bad, I just felt that it dragged on further than it needed to.

Don't waste your credit/money

The story is long winded and pointless. There is no reason for ANY of the things that happen and they are described in such detail it was painful. I bout this because of the 4.8 rating but I don't know how it got that. The tasks were pointless and the characters were vapid. I kept thinking it would get better but it never did. There's 20 hours of my life I won't get back. Such a waste.

Solid start

I think the narrator suited very well for this story. I liked it. I can see where insperations have come from :) But there where conversations and dialogs, I felt could have been a lot better and some choices were odd. Overall a complete firts part of a story.

Must Get

This is an amazing book! I just spent the last hour listening to this book. I can not wait to hear more. Nick Denton has a wonderful voice. Do pick up this book and get lost in the world. I already am.

Even better in Audiobook!

I read and enjoyed this title in hardback but Nick Denton breathed even more life into this story, and Tobias' voice. The audiobook was lively, engaging, and I was absolutely thrilled to be back in this world. If you're not familiar, Jenna's brand of adult humor (and the fact that she doesn't shy from gore) shines out, and makes this a truly approachable adult fantasy.

Fantastic story, wonderful narrator, 10/10 would recommend. :D

Simply Breath-taking!

Jenna Moreci's sophomore novel, The Savior's Champion, is everything I love in fantasy, romance, and fight scenes! Her ability to make her character's emotions and thoughts leap from the page left me feeling just as much as the characters themselves! Her use of imagery had me not listening, but watching this unfold in front of me like a movie.

Nick Denton's voice-acting gave me chills as he brought the characters to life!

If I could give this more than 5 stars, I would!

Everything I wanted in a book

This book is easily one of my favorites. It kept me waiting in the right places and left me with an amazing story to think about and revisit. Few of the voices didn't match in my head but it wasn't supposed to be my vision, so I got over it.

The story is captivating and easy to follow. I personally wanted to follow the entire tournament so I didn't mind the length. There was only one part where I felt like the story was proceeding slowly. The story is original and the ending felt like a surprise even though I had noticed some of the hints along the way.

I felt a range of emotions and will be going through them again. It will be so interesting to listen to the book the second time. I knew the end of the book was getting closer but I just wanted it to continue. I can't wait for the next book but I will. :))

There was violence, romance (but not too much), characters I hated and characters I cheered on and everything made sense to me. I was contented after I finished the book.

Jenna has a gift and I really enjoy her writing. The style and content are just what I look for in a book. Her future work will certainly be great. I'm so glad that one day I just randomly stumbled onto her Youtube channel and started binge watching.

Lovely!

A truly enjoyable story! Not sure if I was happy with then ending, however. Also, some parts in the middle were quite slow, a little too much description. Overall, it was a gripping tale and I can't wait to get my hands on the next in the series. I would love to beta read at any point, however! As for the narrator, at some points the voices were a bit strange and it changed in pitch, but mostly, I adored it. Great accent!
