Putting the Grand Quest behind them, the party rides onward in search of answers. Between one member's unexpected new condition and the mysteries of the Bridge, their only hope appears to be gaining entrance to Lumal, said to hold the greatest collection of knowledge in all the kingdoms. But when a curious path appears in a seemingly uninhabited forest, the party finds themselves in a place set apart from the kingdoms, and the world at large: a hidden hamlet, filled by unusual people, all of whom have long histories of their own.

Wynne might have been human once. It's hard to say. Now he's a bunker core, a nanomachine controller responsible for an entire complex. Of course, the place is a bit wrecked. And the world outside is in ruins. And he's pretty sure that whoever put him here is going to come looking for him at some point....

Jason Richards is in his 40s, recently divorced, and hates his job, but all of that changes when he's attacked by a redheaded vampire and left for dead in a truckstop bathroom. He soon wakes up in a mansion, surrounded by beautiful women and told he can never go home again. More importantly, he finds that his bones no longer ache, he feels amazing, and he looks like a 20-year-old kid again. That's because he's a Ferin, a Forever Young, gifted with immortality and special abilities unlike anything he ever thought possible.

I really want to give this book a higher rating there is some great stuff going on in it are Leading Lady Jade is lovable and there's a nice healthy mix of cool and interesting characters there's some Mary Sue like bits but overall extremely enjoyable the thing is there's no conflict here and that's the problem Jade is automatically the best at everything everyone loves her and goes out of the way to help her and they do put in a good explanation for why this is done right into the story so it makes sense within the world but when there's no conflict and we know that everyone loves her and that she's the best there's no tension I'm at the start to get boring so while this was nice and I enjoyed it I'm going to have to pass on the rest of the series

During Dan Marshall’s second year of college, the real world melded with a home-brew Towers & Trolls adventure. Dan got barbaric and battled giant spiders, an apocalyptic death cult, and an undead necromancer bent on flooding the universe with eternal darkness. Luckily, Dan has two amazing women at his side: Holly, a grey elf druid from a powerful family; and Nadia, a streetwise shifter with heavy connections in the local thieves’ guild.

our Meathead hero really it's a whole new level of stupidity in this one holy and Nadia are still amazing we get an expansion of the Harem and mostly my issue is that Meathead the Barbarian doesn't behave like a hero he behaves like a petulant spoiled brat the entire time and it's hard to like someone like that. yes the world does punish him for his bad behavior and reward him whenever he does good but the entire time his attitude he's a complete turn off

When college sophomore Dan Marshall's life morphs into a hybrid of Penn State and a home-brew tabletop RPG adventure, he grabs his talking two-handed sword and hits campus, seeking gold, girls, and glory. But even with two beautiful badass women at his side, how can a low-level barbarian survive when he’s pitted against a fraternity of gnolls, a dungeon full of nightmares, and an apocalyptic death cult bent on destroying the whole world?

our hero Dan is the definition of too dumb to live sometimes living up to the stupid Barbarian trip but he's also a good guy and likable and there are a number of characters that stop to point out the fact that he's a complete Meathead considering the mountains and Legions of dithering weenie protagonist our Dan is both proactive and well he does recognize when he royally fucks up he actually shows growth learning from the experience on the downside they Telegraph a lot of shit from a mile away and Dan does not seem to catch on at all even when you stop and consider the fact that he is a table top gamer and should recognize the troops when they smack him in the face then again he is that stupid and it's only thanks to his courage Barbarian strength and allies in two incredibly lovely women whose affection and admiration for him actually makes sense and feels like a genuine relationship a standard crazy old man wizard and his chess-playing drunken monkey and a foul-mouthed sentient sword really balanced out the story and world

When the aliens came down and told us they’d enslave all of the human race if we didn’t send our bigliest warrior to participate in their arena death games, I laughed at them. It was really funny because they obviously didn’t know who they were dealing with. Know what I mean? Then they said they would pick the greatest warrior, and they picked Marc Havak. He seemed like such an average guy, but he was a true-blue American. He even worked as a truck driver! That’s the kind of good guy we want defending us from aliens.
