When a great writer writes a great story

This author knows something others can't even grasp. True talent in writing. Read this series, you won't be disappointed.

Great continuation of the series!

Was very excited when I got the audiobook and I wasn’t disappointed. The books 3&4 were for light reading and the author did a great job of enabling the readers ( well in my case the listeners) to be engaged in the gradual kingdom building and each character’s development. The fight scenes were well written and although the MC is powerful, the fights were tastefully scripted and weren’t steamrolled through.
My only disappointment in the books were how short they were; I really wanted to listen for a while longer. Honestly can’t wait for the next books in the series. Overall a great continuation to the legend of the arch magus book series!!

Keep 'em coming please

I know critics will say the main character is overpowered but I enjoy these books. Easy to listen to and fast paced.

I love this narrator

This narrator brings each character and the story alive and I love the book as a whole. It is a great series and can't wait for the next books.

Fantastic books.

From the story, to the narrator, the writing, everything about these books are incredible so far. I've been looking for something like this without even realising it. I'm so engorged in them that I can't wait to start the next publisher pack. If anybody sees this please look for the writer on Patreon as well!

Better than the last one

I was not upset by the "dogs of the empire" usage. it is simple: our side hates their side so we have a derogatory name. I enjoyed the fact that the MC while powerful still has room to grow and he finally gets some powerfull oponents. Action is decent and while we expect the MC to win the story has a better construction compared with previous books

Great story and good narration

I liked it very much, though you have to sit through too many "entire" and waaay too many "several" to ignore them, the story was compelling - only problem was, it was too short, looking forward to more.

Michael lets talk about these book descriptions

I don't know why the author of these awesome books has such terrible descriptions in them.
I would say book 3 is about our hero visiting the king and book 4 is about the war.
hmm, I can't describe the book without spoilers so I will leave it there.

I had this book on pre-order as this author is one my best finds this year. I got to re-read the first book and I remembered how much I truly love these books. they are very relaxing in a world gone crazy. Tom Taylorson does a good shouting crowd voice, he is really helping to make listening to these books an enjoyable experience.
Not the challenge I always face with a good author - should I read the next book or wait for the audio ... OR BOTH?

Really good sequel.

Lost a night of sleep just listens to the whole book, before I knew it the sun was coming up and I had 2 hours left. So I finished in two hours and went to work. Enjoyed this as much as the first for similar reasons as well. Really liking all the new characters as well and getting to see some more of the Nobles as well.

Sooo freakin good...

I loved this book. I listened and re-listened to the first book so many times I was both looking forward to and worried about the new book. The next one could have gone as so many have before where they stretch it out or add some narrative that just ruins it but I can honestly say the author surpassed the first book. Loved it and the only worry I have is how long I have to wait for the next one..... seriously if you enjoyed the first one don’t hesitate you will love this one.

Anyways please buy it, I want this author to make lots more and as soon as possible!!

Best series of this Genre on audible

Excellent Narration Finished all 4 books in 3 days. Basically love this type of story where someone with advanced knowledge gets transported to a less advanced world and proceeds to built a successful empire.

not great epic fantasy.

I really enjoy these kind of books. If you're looking for something like Stormlight Archives or Song of Ice and Fire look elsewhere if you're looking for a fun simple fantasy series this is good. very simply written quick read and the story moves along very very fast everything I'm looking for. similar to King's Dark Tidings if you're aware of that series. in the sense of it moves in the direction that you would like it too. just an enjoyable series.

could have been much better

The narration is on point and the plot is great but there is no character development. The author "tells" the tale with a ton of repeat statements and a few bland tidbits of dialogue, but completely fails to "show" the world or it's characters. I was unable to immerse myself in this one. If not for the awesome narration, I would have returned it.

The world revolves around one man

This book can't go three sentences without stroking the ego of the MC. I'm surprised that his bowel movements aren't saved and categorized for posterity; what am I saying of course they are it's just not explicitly stated. The only world building you need to know is that this entire universe revolves around the MC. Everyone is incompetent and is just waiting for the MC to arrive to fix everything. The MC already has all the answers and his only complication is finding the time to fix your life for you. Everything is simple wish fulfillment with absolutely no substance.

Still rating this according to the quality of the stories available on audible it's one of the best; as much as a three star average story can be.

There are some positives. There are no harems and uh.... hmm. There is a positive.

Good premise but Awkward writing

The story is ok and but the awkward writing is really a splash of cold water in the face when trying to get sucked in to the story.

Words get repeated a lot. Things like “you guys” and “dogs of the empire” seem like the go to phrase across every person in the book. Other times what and how things are being said doesn’t match what kind of person is saying it. Overall, liked the first one but this is hard to listen to and I probably won’t get the next book.

I think the story could be a lot better if it could change how people say things, taking into account what kind of character is talking.
