Publisher's Summary

Win the annual Conquer tournament and earn wealth and power without measure. Lose and you're dead. No pressure.

The game is Conquer, played for the king's amusement by the most notorious criminals and ambitious lordlings.

Aron Stone, street rat turned commander of the king's First Legion, doesn't have patience for pointless games. But when a series of unfortunate events earns him the king's ire, he is forced to participate.

Armed with a ragtag troop of dwarves, a beautiful but short-tempered sorceress, and a doting mistress, Aron must grow his forces, locate valuable weapons and magical artifacts, and win the day. Only complete victory will allow him to escape the arena and get his revenge.

Warning: This audiobook has medieval cursing including shite and arse, sex with tavern wenches, drunken dwarves, creatures that want to eat your head off, sex with multiple women on multiple occasions, dark-magic-wielding magicians, and more sex with various races, including faeries, elves, and others of the author's invention. Not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

I Feel What I Am Supposed To

I really like this book because the author did a great job with the development of the protagonist and didn't rush it but also didn't make it boring. and even though this falls in the harem trope it doesn't not fail to get you in the feels for each one. I was saddened by the fairies plight. This book does a good job at mixing gamelit, midevil, and fantasy all into one.

Sigh

Really bro. Named the main character after yourself. Then include a scene with him and the kings harem followed by a smash cut to them leaving bow legged and satisfied.

It feels like it was written by a 16 year old.

Most of the sex scenes felt random. The MC is basically this big manly man that gets all the women inside a predictable story. I'm pretty sure most readers here aren't really invested in the characters and I'm wondering why this series is getting more than 3 stars

Unexpected

The beginning was a lot slower than I like, but once it got going, it was like one of the boulders rolling down the hill. This is how I'd picture the Dark Ages being if humanity had magic and the other races, we're a destructive lot, and the knight is a rare character, even nowadays.

Very enjoyable.

I liked the book. The only thing that didn't make sense was that the main driving event of the whole story didn't need to happen. *Spoiler. Why did the king feel he had to spy on his most trusted and accomplished commander? The only reason this story happens is because the king spies on the MC even though the MC has proven his loyalty again and again. If you ignore that part, the rest is a good listen. Looking forward to the next.

Different

Good enough that I'll get the next. I liked that the author didn't jump the MC right into the game. Took time to develop him. Appreciated the lack of a solid cliffhanger.

Can’t wait for book #2!

I really enjoyed the story although it was a bit predictable. It really reminded me of gladiator. As you follow the story you can’t help but cheer for one Aaron Stone to succeed. The performance of the readers were excellent. My only regret is listening to this book before the other books were released in the series. I would have love to continue on to book 2. Now I must wait....God’s speed commanders Aaron Stone. Until we meet again!
