For Maximilian Smith, deciding to save two women from a group of drunken thugs was easy. When he’s mortally wounded in the process of rescuing the women, he finds himself with a much more difficult decision to make. After waking up in the morgue, naked and perfectly healthy, Maximillian Smith begins a new life. Dead to the world of his birth, he must learn to live as a vampire, and that education leads him to a strange new world where all the old tales he’d been told were myths are true.

the story needs some drastic help with transitioning scenes. also the voice actor sounds a bit nasally so the mc sounds like a kid instead of an adult.

Gabriel Delling might call himself a professional con artist, but when walking superstitions start trying to bite his face off, his charm is shockingly unhelpful. It turns out living nightmares almost never appreciate a good joke. Together with a succubus who insists on constantly saving his life, Gabe desperately tries to survive a new reality that suddenly features demons, legends, and a giant locust named Dale - all of whom pretty much hate his guts. And when an ancient horror comes hunting for a spirit locked in his head, Gabe finds himself faced with the excruciating choice between death...or becoming some kind of freaking hero.

I personally liked this book, but have the story a 3 for the personal headache and annoyance I have for people in stories that show snow adaptability, and the whole "this is murder", or "they're a person" thing. I mean I can't be the only one that thinks, "ok, they gotta go". All I can do is think of Samuel Jackson in XXX state of the union and I quote "you know you shoulda killed that b****?"

This has a great story, but the main character is so whiny and annoying it overrides it. He gives up multiple times, cries, and can't seem to adapt without a gun to his head.

A mere farmer in a small village, young Aidan has always dreamed of being a knight in the White Army of Delmar, an anti-dragon country. Despite his poor background, his dream comes true following a chance encounter with a bully knight, and thrilled to now be a soldier, Aidan works hard and pushes towards his dream of becoming a knight. Yet one day, Aidan pays the ultimate price after he saves a baby dragon as it is tormented by his fellow soldiers. For this, Aidan is exiled, and on his way out of the country, he is killed. But for Aidan, death was only the beginning. Waking up three thousand years later, watched over by the very dragon he saved, Aidan is disturbed. With an altered appearance and unstable magical powers he didn’t have before, he is horrified to find that the world has been taken over by an ancient evil that started in Delmar not long after his death. With the help of a time-traveling wizard apprentice and the dragon, Aidan must travel back in time to save the world from this harrowing evil. But after his bitter exile, does he really want to?

Things are not well within the Lodrak Empire. An entire city goes up in smoke and ash, and an entire province is slowly being consumed by an ever-expanding cloud of death. But while the humans rally to contain the fallout of this disaster, they are much quicker to pin the blame for it on their elven neighbors to the north. With centuries' worth of strife and bad blood between the two nations flaring up, all out war is rapidly becoming an inevitability.

OK I have 2 problems with the boo. that said number one is that voice actor didn't have enough range in this voice and characters, and was monotone for the majority of the book. number two is that we really didn't need the second point of view from Pawg after the first two times and just feels like filler due to his lack of significance.

Armon Ellington died on Earth and was transported to Terra, a world governed by rules eerily similar to the RPG games he loved. He found he could gain levels, skills, abilities, and magic just like he could in those games. 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.

First off love the character rips from one piece, and futurama, but the were a few things that made little sense at the time. like how a 6ft tree could crush 4 mounted and armored men and horses. how the giant couldn't keep pace with the wagons but somehow not only left in a different direction, but due to his spidey senses tingling, then got ahead of those same wagons and thwart a unknown ambush. but other then some of that we're good as a whole I guess
