Publisher's Summary

A routine physical shows Captain Ross Mitchell has a flesh-eating virus that specifically targets the brain. Prognosis says he'll be a vegetable by week's end. Having survived numerous incursions in combat around the world, Ross decides he's not going out like that. He drives a rented corvette into a cliff face at over 200 mph. The fiery impact catapults him toward the afterlife. Instead of finding the afterlife, he finds himself in a different body with an old man stabbing him in his chest. He fights free, killing the old man before passing out. He wakes to find he's now in the body of Prince Aaron, the 15-year-old second son of the king. 

In this medieval world, the Royals are mages. The old man who was trying to kill him was a mage "vampire". Instead of blood, the old mage was trying to steal Ross/Aaron's power, knowledge, and in this case, his body. When Ross/Aaron killed the old mage, his vampire power was transferred to him. He now has the memories, knowledge, and powers of the old mage. 

Ross/Aaron must navigate this new environment of court intrigue with care. His older brother, the crown prince, hates him. His older sister has no use for him. The king sees him as an asset to be used, agreeing to marry him to a neighboring kingdom for an alliance. 

Before the marriage takes place, the castle is attacked. Someone is trying to kill him but is finding it most difficult. Where mages fight with magic, Ross/Aaron fights with magic and steel. It's hard to cast a spell with a knife through your skull or your throat cut. As Ross/Aaron travels with his fiancée toward her home for the marriage to take place, they are attacked at every turn. 

Someone doesn't want this wedding to happen. Ross/Aaron has had enough of people trying to kill him. With Aaron's knowledge and Ross' training, they take the offensive. The kingdom will never be the same.

The adventures of Mary Sue...

The premise started out great. Then, it became obvious that the main character could just do anything. For every challenge, he just somehow has the right spell or skill to immediately overcome the problem, and he does so easily and with aplomb. It turned into a really boring, unbelievable read with no growth, tension, or challenge.

Good Read. Recommend!

This was a great book. It runs a little similar to Haddock's other book on Audible: Wizard's Alley. But great book. The character is pretty over powered and the other characters lack a little substance, but I still enjoyed the read. Sometimes you just want to read how the main character gets to stomp on those who oppose him, right? Well, if you like that, this book is for you. The main character, Aaron/Ross is a great swordsman and wizard and uses his powers to better both himself, and then the infrastructure of his kindgom. I really want book 2, because of the story's ending. Not a cliff hanger, but it leads to a whole new story arc that could take place. And as always, Wisniewski's delivery was fantastic. He's got dulcet tones!

Wizards Alley Remix!

I don’t know why I love this OP style of writing but hate it when others try to write in the same way. It has to be the narrator along with the story. This guy is super OP. Like some of the OPness was hilarious, but I liked it. I say this is just like Wizards Alley bc a lot of the magic and kings/queens and issues were the same. I enjoyed that book as well and hope he is writing a second book to that story. Give this book a try it is definitely worth a credit. Thanks

Surprisingly funny an entertaining.

It seems like James Haddock has a recurring theme with MC's, vastly overpowered demi gods. The jokes and banter were spot on an gave me a chuckle. The only thing that would make this book better would be if the MC ran through any sort of trouble, where a hand wave didn't solve the problem. Just give the guy a papercut so we know he's human. Other then that good book.

Kept me entertained

First off this is a very fast paced book, narration was amazing! I liked the book but it was missing something for me. Not gonna give any spoilers but it is a fun listen.

Amazing

Out of 300+ audio books, I haven't left a review, but I feel I need to for this one. This book has a great story line and covers quiet a bit of story with plenty of action. I would say this book has an intelligent story line and progression. It's not one on those teen books where you feel it's fairly simple and has stupid characters. I hope the author continues the story line.

Simple and not complex

I enjoyed this book, I noticed that several reviews berated the author's presentation of the main character, too good.

This is exactly the way I like the main character to be..,.kick butt, take no prisoners, and never get hurt.

The only item I would have changed would have been using a young girl as the main character!

I appreciate other reviewer's comments, but I don't like complex, convoluted, hard (for me) to follow, especially authors who use so many characters that I cannot keep track.

I recommend this story if you agree with my comments.

Rushed!

I liked the premise of the story overall but it seemed rushed and details were skipped, no explanation on how he learns magic, little details on fights and other situations. I would say the story is as wide as a lake but deep as a puddle. It's like a summary of a story.
