    The Seven Forges are a range of impassable mountains, far to the north of the settled lands of Fellein. From time to time explorers venture up beyond the Blasted Lands in search of a way over them and the promise of legendary riches, but without success. Now Captain Merros Dulver has found a path, and encountered, at last, the half-forgotten people who dwell there. And it would appear they were expecting him.

    Meet the galaxy's unluckiest outlaws. Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy fighter pilot turned con man. His ship, the Mobius, is home to a ragtag crew of misfits and refugees looking to score a big payday but more often just scratching to pay for fuel. The crew consists of his ex-wife (and pilot), a drunkard, four-handed mechanic, a xeno-predator with the disposition of a 120kg housecat, and the galaxy's most-wanted wizard.

    Mikael Naramore did an amazing job and brought life to the series! J.S. Morin wrote a fantastic story that grew and changed that made it feel like normal life, having friends come and go as they make their own life choices. if you like space adventure and fantasy magic sit back and dive into the astral and enjoy!

    Many view "hitting rock bottom" as a foundation on which to rebuild one's life, a place from which one can only ascend. Gamers know to search for a secret door leading down to the sewer.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this series so far; the overall premise is great and can't wait for the finally.

    I really enjoy how the book is written, with us being taken through events that happen (real time) and how the main protagonist Narrates other portions (talking to the audience / or in this case the listener) It reminds me of how Malcolm in the middle was done. It's a new twist on how similar litrpg books and series are written.

    Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down.

    A moon caper, how could that be boring?! No idea how he did it but this story is just lame. The protagonist is hard to like, everything unfolds as you would imagine it would, the narration is down on the list as well. Wanted to like this story, I'd skip this one.

    For time out of mind, bloodthirsty demons have stalked the night, culling the human race to scattered remnants dependent on half-forgotten magics to protect them. Then two heroes arose - men as close as brothers, yet divided by bitter betrayal. Arlen Bales became known as the Warded Man, tattooed head to toe with powerful magic symbols that enable him to fight demons in hand-to-hand combat-and emerge victorious.

    The second captivating installment of Aleron Kong's Chaos Seeds series. "We are life takers and heartbreakers," Richter shouted. "Let's go!" Richter and Sion are at it again! Even more of what you loved in the first book. Leveling, world building, awesome items, and what's that you say? Sure! Why not? What's a little necrophilia between friends? Join your favorite Chaos Seed as he answers the call of adventure and deals with the invaders, greedy dwarves, and a wood elf that keeps telling him he has a pretty mouth.

    love this book, the story is great and the character development is great! I kinda feel like we are following around the main character and he was sucked into the game Skyrim or something like that, which I find awesome! Only thing I wish for is that the books are longer 20+hrs IMO.

    Since time immemorial, humans have worshipped the gods they call Fhrey, truly a race apart: invincible in battle, masters of magic, and seemingly immortal. But when a god falls to a human blade, the balance of power between humans and those they thought were gods changes forever. Now only a few stand between humankind and annihilation: Raithe, reluctant to embrace his destiny as the God Killer. Suri, a young seer burdened by signs of impending doom. And Persephone, who must overcome personal tragedy to lead her people.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book, was a great expansions on how Thrawn became part of the Imperial Navy. I still don't have answers as to why he did though, especially given that he is a lover of art and culture which the Imperials seem to hold in contempt if it's from a non-human race unless it can fulfill a large monetary value.

    One thing I wasn't too keen on was Thrawn's inner dialogues/observation. Maybe if he stated that his race can see or can interpret certain things or just himself and what they ment to him it would be ok and provide a more meaningful insight.
