Mankind has lorded over the land of Illian for a thousand years, enjoying what was left to them by the elves, as if it were their birthright. A thousand years is a long time for an immortal race to see the error of their ways and realize a truth that has remained unsaid for a millennia - elves are superior! They are faster, stronger, and connected to the magical world in a way that man could never grasp. Illian is their birthright. The six kingdoms of man are fractured, unallied and always clawing at each other's doors for more power.

Whats with all the woman worship in these types of books? It’s either queers or feminists with these stories. I prefer the old style barbarian, womanizing male chauvinist, teach em what they’re good for and make em love it after destroying all the evil nuisances in the area” main character. Blood, sex and violence without all the self righteous bs. Otherwise, pretty good book

Good story, really bad narrator. If you're a fan of drag Queens with no talent for voice control than ya might like this. No offense to drag Queens but the whole " gay" voice narrating an adventure novel doesn't work for me. You may feel differently. If so, you might like this.

Your entire stories consist of evil beings tormenting the innocent and when the innocent and their heros manage to get the upper hand, it's only just barely and usually, it's to escape from the evil so they can hope to get another chance to just barely win. when they do when, the evil doesn't suffer as it caused others to suffer. It simply ceases to exist with only a little pain if any.
This is seriously infuriating.
Michael Conroe is the only one I've read that doesn't do this. The good in his books treat the evil like the pathetic weak bully it is. The evil starts all arrogant and cocky as it looks forward to victimizing another only to be slapped down like an annoying ant. No real struggle. No matter how strong the evil gets, good continually slaps it down with relative ease. This is what I enjoy.

Another point, Quit pretending that women are physically equal to men. The strongest most powerful woman is equal to a average fit male at best. Women have their own strengths but physical strength and battle tactics are not even comparable to those of men. It's annoying and causes the male characters to appear extremely weak and pathetic when they can't even compete with a female.

This rant comes from about halfway through the second book.

And another thing! A female voice talking for the women would be much appreciated. it's hard to imagine a description of a beautiful woman that talks like a flaming fruity dude.

When vampires attack David White's small town, only luck, firepower, and the intervention of an elite government task force saves his life. The aftermath of the attack leaves him in the middle of the world's biggest secret: the existence of government agencies that regulate the supernatural. They insist that David's "luck" is actually a supernatural gift, and he's immediately recruited into ONSET, the most shadowy part of America's thin blue line of police protectors.

Really good fights and plenty of magic and action but this author does apparently believe that women commonly fight at the same level as men. Retarded feminism interjected into an otherwise great story.

There's a reason why there are no women in special forces..... There's also a reason men aren't supposed to hit women. That reason is..... Science!

other than that..... Great book

Good story, sex scenes are pretty explicit.
These types of stories need two readers imo...A male and a female. kind of off putting when a woman of nearly unparalleled beauty sounds like a dude

Type of sex described is ok but I'd rather get head from a princess than give head but a matter of perspective I guess..... Story is full of action, fighting, magic, etc. Sex only happened once so it's not an overly sexually focused book but there is an explicit scene....
There is a "almost" sex scene that is interrupted and a complete sex scene later on.

I enjoy hearing how the arrogant ancients are given a taste of their own medicine. They think nothing of humans. They're far stronger, faster and better in virtually every way than humans...... except for the main character who is as far better than them in every way as they are better than others humans and he doesn't mind proving it.
Makes for some pretty epic fight scenes.
Author makes you wait a little longer than I prefer in places to conclude a event but not overly so.

I ordered second book

Large chests are said to encompass all manner of hopes and dreams. Men covet them. Women envy them. But one fact holds true - everyone wants to get their hands on some big ones. The same holds true for one intrepid adventurer - a strapping young lad by the name of Himmel. Armed with his grandfather's trusty longsword and the dream of being the strongest, he sets out on the journey of a lifetime!

I empathize with humans so these types of anti hero stories don't do anything for me but if you're secretly hating on humanity... maybe you've been bullied or something... This might be a thing for you.

My name is Mac Brennan, and that's the only thing I can remember about myself. Not why I woke up in a dumpster. Not why my right arm is as black as pitch and covered in glowing red tattoos, and certainly not why a vicious death cult is after me. Actually, that last part isn't true. I know why the death cult is after me. It's because I saved that damned girl from them. I didn't know who she was at the time, but I'd have done it anyway. I just don't like it when girls get beat up; call me old fashioned.
