This next bit of the story is written in the usual considered manner of the previous Demon Accord issues.
Enjoyed it thoroughly. So will you.

Look at this! A positive review. Here we have realistic protagonists (given context of course) with well thought out responses to the conflict that is generated. The story develops well and progresses realistically. It is written in an easy to follow progressive manner. Recommended!

Did I miss the memo? The one that mandated porn in every book published after 2015? That's problem number one.
I don't need to Know. OK? Put the folk behind closed doors and we get the idea.
And why do we need to read this book? Super Marine is on hand. The Author will invent some crap to bring the protagonist into peril as is required by the "formulae" and the Super Marine will fix it. Again I say Blah.

Save your money for an Ice Cream.

Oh! And I'm not American but I can't credit your UHRAH Patriotic Bullshit. This book is FULL of IT. I honestly don't know why I bothered. - Sighs dejectedly.

Honestly if your IQ is over 90 save your money.

I'm not sure but I think Cole and Pike are about 70 now. Gives me hope for my advanced years. Great Story Great Characters Great Action and Great Narration. Now we have to wait another year for another book. Strike ME! How old will they be then???

Well, it's a narrative written for 14 year olds about LIT RPG. It's "Nice" Is it just me or has Audible run out actual Fantasy authors?
Sigh - well I'm about done. I'd better go write my own.

Good Story with not an idiot protagonist. Well considered and well put together. Oh, and it didn't drive me crazy with moralizing morons wondering if everybody else's right to pillage and plunder and rape was more important than the protagonist's right to protect and serve. How refreshing. Best listen for a long while.

Reasonable Story good concept - ruined by "erotic" crap that doesn't need to be there. Sigh. Would have liked to read the rest.
Good Narration though. And brave I think. Dunno - Maybe I'm a prude. Oh Well Not for me.

REMEMBER! This is my opinion - you folks are probably more patient than me.

The title says it all. Like most of us, I've been waiting a long time for coherent well-narrated fantasy. So I heard the sample - took a chance - Book One of this series kept me interested without exciting me but hey - better than nothing, right? Book One has enough to make you think = "OK, I'll get the rest."

Mistake - Book two meanders all around the place in a way that befuddles. Every chapter beginning causes a bitter "Now where the ?%@# are we? So frustrating that I didn't finish that stupid thing and won't attempt Book Three.
.
Sorry to be a downer - Still waiting for the next Land, for the next Demon Accords, for the next Peter Grant, for the next Saxon Tales, and of course the next Dresden, or at least something that is worth listening too.. Sigh -

What did you like best about Koban, Volume 1? What did you like least?

What moron decided that you take Summerer out of the process and insert a lisping whiny totally out of the loop Freeman as Narrator - ( and I use the word loosely) How can he find emphasis on nouns and adjectives and draw out verbs. The end of each sentence can be predicted by the last word being rolled slowly off the tongue so as to drawl (or perhaps drool) How are we supposed to put up with this for 18 hours?I want Eric back but he has gone. At least from this one. DONT change if you want to stay awake or be able to follow the story line amid all the cringes required from this torturous listen.

What other book might you compare Koban, Volume 1 to and why?

All the others - with Summerer reading - great story great narration . I can hear the story.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Really - let me count the ways. He may get away with reading a knitting pattern. "Knit one - pearl two" (I doubt it but I don't want to seem harsh) His feminine attempts are so cringe worthy as to be laughable so what are we to do. I shall beg audible to give me Koban read by EMS but I won't hold my breath.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

This review is not about the book - A movie would be great but unlikely.

Any additional comments?

DO NOT DUMP the ORIGINAL NARRATOR _ DO NOT SO IT.
