Publisher's Summary

Sean discovered that words do indeed have power, and agreements are binding in this world, where the Queens of the Fey rule.

Fleeing the burning village of Oakwood, with Feline Moonbound pursuing them, Sean, Fiona Mithrilsoul, and Myna Mooncaller will have to find a way to coexist as they cross the wilds to distance themselves from the atrocities behind them.

The uncertainty of what will come constantly gnaws at Sean. Fiona is with him, now bonded for ten years, but Myna has been life bonded to him. Trying to sort out his mixed-up feelings, Sean worries what might happen with the woman he loves and the friend he pulled back from death’s door.

(This work contains adult situations, that some might find offensive, not least of which is graphic sex. This audiobook is about an overpowered MC, and contains a harem, you’ve been warned).

feels like the book doesn't progress the story

I really enjoyed the first book but this second one was tough to get through. It feels like this book makes no progress in moving the story forward. The main characters whining about his relationships with his life bonded is painful to hear but that is a large part of the story.

Waste of time and money

Schinhofen managed to ruin another series with the same exact kink he has had in his other books.

literally. it goes like this. MC struggles to accept banging more than one women. Accepts doing this. Likes it. Then the entire book is just the author describing food. The MC complaining about his feelings in his head "woe is me, why can't I be more like my best friend". Let's listen women #1's problem tonight. describe some food. listen to women #2's problem the next night. drink tea.x100

The characters are basically copy pasted from his last horrible harem novel. the book goes no where! this series is crap.

Daniel. just mail order 2 brides. one with a somewhat Scottish accent and another with an Asian bloodline to live your fantasies so your readers don't have to keep listening about it.

awful dense MC

The MC was unbearable to listen to. He acts like he hates everything including his "women" himself the world ect.. He has absolutely no respect anything the women say. He treats them as if they have no agency or opinions and then hypocritically hates everyone else for the same thing. The only positive he talks about how great some guy he used to know is. I just kept thinking the MC is gay and hates women. DNF

this book is not fun.

MC is an idiot.
more 3/4's of the book is the bonded women convincing him to accept the situation while he complains and whines about everything.

it's too bad, I really wanted it to be good.

3hrs in and it feels like nothing has happened

First off, round of applause for Andrea Parsneau. At this point I think she is in my top 5 narrators at this point. It's too bad she can't save this book.

Now, the story its self is boring. There isn't a clear destination for our protagonists, so I can't tell how close I am to something happening. There isn't a clear objective, which makes me feel like the author doesn't know what he wants to happen. Finally, the dialogue circles...

(minor spoilers)

...there are three topics for our trio, dont call me master, I miss james, and I dont want to sleep with you. There was a moment that could have been interesting but they say nope and go down river.

Angsty

The story doesn't progress and the entire book is the author complaining about how society treats the the women he's with.

Very Enjoyable!

I found this a very enjoyable book with great character development. Reading other reviews I was nervous but having listened to it, they seem to have a problem with someone not just jumping in bed with multiple women. The fact that he had to work through the moral implications was taxing to them. I personally found it refreshing that he had to really think about the implications for himself and the women involved. Good Book, Great Characters and an Excellent Plot!
Another great job by Andrea Parsneau! I Love Her Work! I can’t wait to see where you go from here!

Schinhofen does it again

Another excellent adult fantasy from Daniel Schinhofen. Stranded on another world by The Morrigan, Celtic goddess of war, fate, and death, Sean MacDougall finds himself and his friends wandering the bandit haunted roads after their home is destroyed. A fun read but not intended for youngsters.

Epic yet again.

Narration was perfection as it always is from this narrator. The story well written and entertaining just like the first one. The only minor issue is the main character being overly sensitive and emotional at times.

Excellent!

I continue to be amazed by the work of Daniel and how Andrea narrates his books. Keep up the great work both of you. And I do highly recommend any of Daniels books either on audible or for the traditional read.

It is actually becoming a bit frustrating.

I like the theme and it would be a really good book if not for the fact that the MC is such a prude and his adaptaion issues are unbelieveable. I have honestly been getting more and more annoyed with every „Mina, I love Fiona” and „Not yet”, I hope that in the next book Daniel will finally make Sean more „understanding” and stops him from trying to impose literally every earth law onto a fantasy, irish-inspired world.
