Publisher's Summary

The Netherworld: it is a hellish landscape inhabited only by demons, creatures born from the dark abyss. It is also the only world Salvos knows.

Joining the ranks of newborn demons, Salvos is thrown into the violent, anarchy-ruled landscape of that world. To survive, she will have to learn, she will have to adapt, and she will have to evolve. She will gain experience to reach new Levels of power. 

Her curiosity aids her but her pride could be her fall. It is the nature of the Netherworld to avoid or conquer any threats faced. After all, the law of evolution is survival of the fittest, and Salvos is a survivor. And perhaps, eventually, she will leave this world behind for a better place. But is that what she even wants? 

Salvos is a monster evolution litRPG series that follows the adventures of a Demon girl. It is set inside a game-like world with classes and levels, but it is not inside the world of a video game.

Love, love, love!

Solid world building, and love the less-than-perfect MC. Tess is my favourite and she killed it as usual!

Hooked from the start! Fantastic narrator

This is the first audiobook I've listened to by Tess Irondale and she absolutely killed it! I'm a big fan of Andrea Parsneau and her work on The Wandering Inn series and Tess Irondale just entered the LitRPG scene with a bang. The story is captivating and well written and works well with Tess's narration style - a perfect pair. When is book 2?!

So Good I Wish It Was A Game

Still fairly new to LitRPG's, but I loved this book. The only problem is waiting for the rest of the trilogy! I can't wait to see where this story goes.

Good but Clumsy

This book has a great concept and a passable RPG System, but the writing is just too clumsy for me to get past the first 2 hours. I'll admit that it's not terrible, but the writing is always slightly off, doesn't flow well, and is exposition/repetition heavy. It really could've used better editing. It was acceptable enough during the Larva stage when it could be excused because the MC was an infant, but the Lesser Demon stage dialog is cringy as hell and character motivations are an odd mix of too deep for children but too shallow for adults. Not sure if it's intentional, but it's certainly not enjoyable.

This book had a lot of potential going for it, but I can't bring myself to keep listening. That said, I have insanely high standards when it comes to stories, so many people might sill enjoy this despite what I consider to be flaws. Also, not sure why everyone is gushing over the narrator in their reviews. She's good, but she's not notably skilled or anything.

Loved this story!

This story has quite a few of my favorite tropes in it: monsters evolving, monsters learning to cooperate and be "good", great dialogue, and over arching mysteries. The narration was great, and I will certainly be getting the next book in the series when it comes out.

Great audio book!

The story was very good. The narration was excellent. Can't wait for the 2nd audio book.
