Publisher's summary

Sean and his Bonded settled in Hearthglen to learn, train, and grow. Taking on an apprentice, setting up his shop, and Bonding both Chastity and Andrea to him, Sean felt like he would finally be able to learn about this world and try his hand at new things.

Sean stepped on some toes as he tried to find his place in the city, but by ignoring conventions, he friended smith and Shaper alike, forging friendships across the divide. The newly formed alliance discovered common ground when opposition rose up to hinder them.

Sean never anticipated the assassins that came for him and his Bonded. With Ida paralyzed and Ryann killed in front of him, Sean lashed out. He killed the attackers, healed Ida, and pulled Ryann back to the world of the living.

Guards rushing toward them, Sean had decisions to make - ones that could shake the very foundations of Hearthglen, and maybe the world. 

(This work contains adult situations that some might find offensive, the least of which is graphic sex. This audiobook is about an Overpowered MC, and contains a harem. You’ve been warned.)

Disappointed

Ive really enjoyed this series up until this book. The main story line barely even moved. At least 50% of the book was people patting the mc on the back. Hopefully the next book will have less ego stroking and more story progression. The narrator was great as usual though.

Back to not so good

Everyone pats the MC in the back and tells him how great he is for 15 hours. Andrea Parsneau narration is excellent.

You just never want it to end.

This has been one of the best series i have heard. I love most of Daniel's work but i think this one is his best. Most definitely worth the credit.

keep them coming

in this book it picks right of with what Sean's has done, We learn who the people was that tried to kill him and his family. The way Sean refuse to be like the nobles makes him more likable and more humble. the ending to the book is really good and I will leave it there not to spoil it

Once again Andrea kills the voices and bring the story to life. Anything she dose i can recommend 100% and will be getting as many books as I can by her.

Great story with an awesome narrator!!!

Love Daniel Schinhofen's work and cannot get enough of Andrea Parsneau's voice!
This series continues to get better, with us finally getting a hint of the movements of those with power.
Sean is finally starting to make powerful connections and activly invest in his power base instead of his previous passive attitude.
It seems he finally realises that in order to live the type of life that he desires he'll have to change the way things are done.

I loved that he could finally start dropping the act and started to show himself to the world.
Seeing his character influence those close to him and send ripples throughout the world is incredibly satisfying.

Cannot wait for more, looking forward to the next one!

Forged Bonds

Daniel Schinhofen is one of the most talented and skilled author. And he doesn't disappoint with this new book of this series. I for one can not wait for the next book of this series.

And with the voice acting talents and skills of Andrea Parsneau who makes the characters and world come alive with the narration of this book...

This book is a must to listen to and owned by you the listeners...
