Terrence Mack was born poor, grew up tough, and died hard. Waking up in a sea cave with nothing but the clothes on his back and a new bullet scar was enough to convince him that wherever his death had brought him, it wasn't paradise. His new world quickly proves to be a place of danger, magic, monsters, and - for Terry at least - women. Known on Celestine as a template, Terry's genes are key to the survival of the eldritch races. But the fiercely competitive eldritch don't typically leave their lovers alive long, and aren't accustomed to taking 'no' for an answer.

I was hesitant about getting this one for a long time, but I'm glad I finally picked it up. The book paints the world well. I could see different parts of it as it went along.
The characters are deep enough that I wanted to know what they did next. Especially Terry and his trust issues. I highly recommend this one.

Alexander Weiss inadvertently insults Athena, goddess of wisdom, and she casts him away on a forgotten isle filled with statues. Being marooned is bad enough, but the fact that the island is also the home of Euryale, elder sister to Medusa, makes the situation a touch worse. The only thing keeping Alex from being petrified is the fact that Euryale has taken a liking to the blundering mortal. For now.

Or so it should have been called. The parts where he's having fun with uriale is great but, most of this book is the gods making him miserable. I found it depressing after a while but, the ending won't leave you frustrated. Overall I thought this book was good enough that I didn't want to put it down and, would recommend you read it.

Before World War II could reach its conclusion, the world suffered what could only be defined as a cataclysm. Now, Yosemite city stands as the gateway between two worlds and an equal power in the continent. Unfortunately, it’s surrounded on all sides by those who would love to see them fail. Standing at the top of Yosemite is the warrior king Vince, a ranger turned city state ruler. Supporting him in his endeavors is his inner circle. With a firm grasp on Yosemite, Vince has solidified his borders.

Armon Ellington died on Earth and was transported to Terra, a world governed by rules eerily similar to the RPG games he loved. In addition to finding a way to become more powerful, he also found the friends and family he’d always longed for. Unfortunately, he also discovered the pain of losing them. Now, Armon finally has the information he’s been searching for. He knows where the kidnapped kobolds that the Imperare took are. A city deep in the heart of the Imperare Empire and a place renowned for its gladiatorial arenas.

I never believed in superheroes. I certainly didn't believe I'd become one, or that strategically forming a harem of hot chicas and getting down with them to unlock my superpowers would be the key to my survival. Did I say my survival? I meant the universe's. No, really.... That's exactly what happened when I was taken to a galaxy of supers, thrown into a prison ship full of villains, and told it was up to me to stop them all.

It's all about the sex. I mean I like the whole haremy thing similar books got going on. It makes it fun to pick a favorite but, I felt like half this book was either talking about doing it, doing it, or talking about genitalia. Some interesting things go on but, I'm glad I've finished this and I can move on.

Ryker only has one goal in his life right now: Turn a certain adventuring guild into a flaming wreck while dancing merrily through the smoldering ruins. All for the chance to get back at a handful of people. It isn’t as if they didn’t deserve it either. They had driven him from his home. Chased him physically from the very guild house itself.  Simply because he wasn’t as strong as they expected him to be. As strong as he’d expected himself to be. He’d returned the next day and left with something he’d hidden away and told no one about when he found it in one of his few Dungeon Dives.

This is one of those books that will keep you up at night because you don't want to put it down. Lucia's rags to to riches story is filled with silly motivations, a strong denial, and a slow degradation of her character. Also the predators the scariest creatures in this world are hilarious. the reveal reminded me of the rabbit in monte python's holy grail. Even though its neither a small nor a rabbit. Definitely buy this book. there are fewer better books than this one than I have fingers on my left hand.
