Publisher's Summary

The kindest hearts make the cruelest villains. 

The perfect tools if you know where to buy them.... 

Cha Ming’s new brother is a demon fox. He’s cute. He’s naughty. And he’s always hungry. If only Godbeasts didn’t grow so damned quickly. When the duo joins their classmate Gong Lan on an expedition, they soon discover that not everything is as it seems. It’s not rebels they’re fighting, but devils wearing human skins. 

Can they disrupt an evil merchant’s soul trade without the help of the army? Gong Lan’s techniques are driving her mad, and it’s only a matter of time before she turns on them.

A soup so full it became pudding

This is much like the first book. But, with too many events and too many named people.

The first book had a slower pace, there would be down time and lead up to important events. It had a good flow and I was able to take it in. But, this book is one important event after the next in rapid fire. I still enjoyed much of the book, but without down time there is no room to grow and develop characters. I only really felt connected to the MC from the first book, and this was enough to bring me through the story.

The second main issue is related to the first. There where just way to many named people in this book. Incorporating so many people into the main story made it really hard to tell who did what. There was more than one time when I realized someone was familiar, sometimes after they were already dead. But, no time was spent on the reader's connection with these characters nor time reintegrating them into the reader's attention when they appear later in the story.

So, this book had too much stuff, and everything suffered from a lack of space or attention. But hey, the third book looks like it may be better, so I've pre-ordered.

I really like the first book, but...

I really enjoyed the first book despite some mild to moderate sexism. This book tried to make female characters more prevalent but the author is clearly unable to view female characters as real people. He never talks about any of the male characters being “sexy”. But the first real female fighter we get is “sexy” and “slender” and has a “perfect slender body”. Gross, I’m returning it and not continuing the series. I hope this writer learns how to write women in the future because I liked the story and the world.

I loved it.

Okay! I just finished! Tbh I loved the book! If you enjoyed book one of this series then you will also enjoy this one! The characters are great and the story is thrilling. While the MC is strong he is not over powered. He can be beaten and he can win against the odds. I’m living the series and can’t wait for the next one.

Great with one main issue

I enjoyed this book just about as much as the first one. I liked the growth of most of the characters, the problem comes with the most over powered cultivation to ever exist "BLOOD". I was frustrated how this cultivation allowed 4 breakthrough moments for one of our main characters in less than a month, like what? I would think most people would want to use blood cultivation, and the lack of blood cultivators feels like a huge plot hole, if it is such a fast track to power.

Let's compare for a second, the MC has a clutivation for body and spirit made by a being who claimed to defeat GODS and he is at a much lower cultivation compared to this blood cultivation chick. I am sorry but that just feels a bit off to me, I do not mind the MC not powering up as fast but he has a several thousand year old dude inside his mystic brush to teach him AND he had some lucky breaks, this chick can just go "ahhhh blood make feel good" and get major jumps in her cultivation, this bothered me greatly and I had to stop several times to understand why the author needed all these crazy jumps in power for her, and even by the end I was still bothered by it. I still liked the book though and would recommend it.

Just getting better

I am so glad that they changed the Narrator because this series is just getting better and better. No complaints about this book. They didn't go overboard on filler, the characters are all developing in ways that make you want to see what happens next, and No plot holes. You should read this.

Great improvement over book 1

Much more action and unique concepts are in this Book 2 than Book 1, making for a more enjoyable experience. Although, at the same time there is more violence and dark themes like slavery. I like how multiple characters get their own unique power ups, besides the main character.

Great Series, terrible narrator!!

First off, I love this series. I own all available books on kindle and have read them many times.

That being said, the narrator is atrocious...He has zero ability to instill emotion into his voice to match the story. When he tries it just comes out in an annoying nasally arrogant tone. That would be fine for certain characters but all of them???

Additionally, with the exception of Cha Ming an a couple others, it is impossible to detect a difference in the voice between characters.

If all that wasn't enough, the female voice a absolutely horrible.

The author would be better off hiring Travis Baldree or Daniel Thomas May to narrate the rest of series. I would even go so far as have one of re-narrate the first two.

Narrator is still annoying, Storyline is a bit more cohesive.

Though much of this book is still sort of meandering and slice of life-ish, the author does manage to put more of a plot into this second installment. It’s such that by the end we actually have enough information to feel like there are several storylines being crafted. As opposed to the first book where it just seemed like things happened to and around the characters without much obvious meaning or purpose.

The cultivation system is still almost completely glossed over. There’s continues to be very little information about the actual mechanics or methods of increasing ones cultivation level. Despite the levels and breakthroughs being constantly discussed we know almost nothing about what the characters are doing to achieve these goals.

It’s almost as if the author is assuming that there is one true cultivation system that every book in the genre already agrees on, and so it would be redundant to actually discuss it beyond characters taking pills and “meditating”.

Then there’s the super-annoying narrator who is still pronouncing almost every line like it’s the last sentence in a children’s book, and he’s doing his best to add gravity to the last few words by narrating in a drawn out, and subdued, yet dramatic voice. It makes you feel like there is a crazy person who thinks he is surrounded by skittish, developmentally-challenged children, reading this book in the hopes of imparting a deep message... Just terrible.

I will get the next book as the writing is improving, but dear god, hire a new narrator.

The Ending Sucks!!!

The ending sucks big time but most of the book was not that bad. The book works well for most of the story but someone who is trying to be free from fate he sure is at its mercy.
