Publisher's Summary

Vainqueur Knightsbane is your average dragon: A giant, fire-breathing lizard who loves to take naps on his golden hoard, kidnap princesses for fun, and make the life of adventurers miserable. Vainqueur's only pleasure in life is to watch his treasure get bigger, one coin at a time.

So when a would-be thief turned unwilling minion tells him about "classes", "levels", and "quests", Vainqueur wonders if maybe, just maybe, he should consider a career change.

After all, why bother hunting monsters for free when you can get paid for it?

Awesome change of pace

Other than a few audio glitches with the dragon not having a deep voice sometimes the book was amazing very different style of lit RPG but very good.

This is a most wonderful book.

I'm so glad I purchased this book. The whole 15 hours and 21 minutes were a pleasure to listen to. There were a few editing mistakes with the dragon's voice, but I would gladly overlook that because the story was so entertaining. I want more!

Loved It. took me by surprise.

I was skeptical about purchasing this book but am very glad that I did. It was done surprisingly well. It was a good performance. Also very funny at times. A little dark humor goes a long way with me sometimes.

Mildly amusing, but it gets old

The characters all have vivid personalities, but they're so two-dimensional that they really can't carry the story along. The dragon's arrogance is funny, but gets old after a while and it's really tough to develop much affection for him. He would be better as a minor character in another story. The sames goes for our other MC, Victor. It's just really hard to care much about these characters.

The narrator does a good job, although there a couple of minor female characters whose voices are like chalk screeching across a chalkboard. He actually does too good of a job with the dragons: he uses some sort of echo technique that makes the voices sound thunderous, but it actually makes it harder to distinguish what they're saying if you're listening in a noisy environment as I often am.

I grew bored after a while and started counting the minutes until it was over.

alot of audio issues

I can appreciate using effects to create a unique voice for every character, but when you do that you need to make sure that the effect is there everytime that character speaks. this book really needs an audio editor to go back through and fix stuff.

good

Well written and narrated. some minor errors like in the beginning the MC is from London, and near the end he says he wants to get back to his home in the USA.

A must listen! Top book so far this year

Okay so a Dragon as an adventurer absolutely love it! The MC is so amazing and hilarious with how he thinks. I absolutely loved this book and would recommend it for anyone who loves LITRPG !!!!

So technical note. The audio book performance has several faults in it. Multiple times the wrong voice was used. But it is not a deal breaker for me. I hope their is better QA for book 2

Communist meets one dimensional dragon. Skip this one.

Random communist propaganda awkwardly forced into the story throughout. It’s annoying finding peoples politics being needlessly shoved into fantasy worlds and fiction.

Regardless, the voice actor did a great job.

Can’t deal with all the political preaching, so I’m returning it.

Great story and narration!

Imagine a dragon who discovers adventuring and a class system...
"You mean I can get paid for eating snacks.. er... I mean trolls?!

Honestly what more do you need to know - stop hesitating and BUY THIS BOOK!!!

Jack does a great job with the narration - really brings the characters to life!

I loved this on and can't wait for the next audiobook to come out!!!

Interesting and fresh

I love books that follow Non-human main characters. Following a friggin dragon is really very epic. This book is certainly like none I have ever read. I look forward to book 2. The 15 hours I spent with it was well worth it. Jack Voraces is a very good narrator. I have listened to several books by him and he never disappoints. This audiobook is well worth your credit or hard-earned dollars.
