This story is good not a masterpiece but the pacing is good and the characters are likable. If you want something that will keep you captivated from beginning to end this is probably not it. But it’s a good set up for what could be a great series. The first 3/4th of the book is character development. But it was done well and the banter mixed with the internal thoughts made the story good.
I think there is potential for a good series here, I will buy the next one.

For those who reside in the outer regions of Aleria, the day of bestowal is what determines their destiny. It is the holy day of the Goddess. The day that allows those of age to step forward and receive their blessing, to embark on the path that she has chosen for them. To receive their Classification, which dictates their strength and ability. For those people, the holy day of bestowal represents fate itself. For Dante, it represents salvation.

Probably one of the best books I have spent a credit on. I was hesitant for a long time. But trust a stranger, it’s worth the credit.
The story itself has a dark sort of outline and style behind it which makes it a little unique. The storyline is good and the rpg part of the story is very short and to be honest the story itself doesn’t really need the few elements of liking and exp that it has. It is good enough to stand alone, however I can see why the author chose to add these elements.
If you haven’t read something along the lines of an rpg style book this is a good intro (although a little dark)
The story is no where near as dark as the prince of thorns but it doesn’t need to be. Twists and plot jumps make this a great listen.

This feels more like a supplement to the last book. The story is sort of lacked the action the previous stories had brought to life. The first book got away with this by having a new world and creatures. But the plot device is nothing new, which can be fine but it came off slow very very slow.
I liked the previous 3 books and maybe it would have been best to make it a trilogy or spend more time creating a new plot.
With that being said if a 5th book comes out I will download it, but if nothing happens I will probably avoid a 6th and recommend my friends to keep to the first 3.

This was a good book. One stranger to another it’s worth the buy. And will most likely quickly climb the ladder to become one of the top stories in its category. I think the narration was excellent and stayed consistent throughout the story.
The plot itself was believable enough.
What I really enjoyed was the different monsters and how the narrators used their studio to maximize the creepiness of each monster.
Buy it, love it.
There was one sex scene which wasn’t to much or to long and it’s a very very small portion of the book.
Excellent book
