Okay...

The MC ruined this one. He’s a know it all who asks for help than ignores the lesson. Just cause you can do what the teacher says without issue doesn’t mean you ignore what they ask of you just cause you think you know best... even though you went through so much trouble just to get them to teach you in the first place.

not again Eric Vall

once again you took what might be a somewhat interesting idea and goofed it all up look I get power fantasy and wish-fulfillment fantasy but when you make your main character a literal goddesses boy toy who is also the special you jumped the shark way too fast way too soon and make all of the Power and the hot girls and the fantasy elements feel completely unearned he's not pulling ahead because he's clever or a good person he's just some douchebag that gets inconceivably lucky at every turn if you can look past that then you'll like this because the girls are hot the adventure and the action are relatively good and all that mess but personally it's not good

Couldn't listen anymore after 3 hours.

First let me say the voice acting is fine. Not great but definitely good enough to make you believe they are different people.

And that's about it for the good news. Everything else was either absolutely horrid or almost approached OK.

The worst part is the main character. There is nothing likable about him. He starts off telling you he always knew he didn't belong and had a special destiny. Then a goddess plucks him from Modern Earth and tells him exactly that, confirming his specialness all along.

She then drops him off in a high fantasy world where, to no surprise, he has innate magic. That would be OK if he didn't ask for help learning how to control this power, then get pissed off every single time someone even kinda mentions he has no training. At one point he is taken to the most powerful order of magic on the planet, to the head of the order no less. Does he act humble? Is he grateful for the audience? Happy to be given a chance to learn? Triple no.

It was like watching a highschool student tell a PHD I know more than you... after you just asked them to teach you. That's how it came across.

I had to give up after three hours.

Very Interesting

Eric Vall’s first installment of Metal Mage was very interesting. I found it to be a new take on fantasy. I enjoyed the idea of replicating modern tech is a mid evil society. I am excited to see how the story line progresses and the world building expands in book 2!

Light/anime style barely any conflict

I didn't like the goofy MC and it moved to slowly for me. A lot of time spent on unrealistic crafting and tropey magic academy. Interesting plot annoying OP MC

Wow

Another author that doesn't realize that smirking is not a good go-to expression if you want to endear your characters to each other (within the story) and to the audience. A smirk every now and then shows depth. A smirk every chapter shows lack of imagination and annoys the reader. I counted at least eight smirks within the first few chapters before i gave it up for a bad job.

Really enjoyed the book but

Mason became to powerful to quickly with no real learning curve imo. No one picks up blacksmithing that quick! 😁

Another good book by Master vall

Another great book by vall, really cool story and world. only problem with the book I can see is the main character can be a bit arrogant. but other than that it's worth your time

Captivating from start to finish

Do you want to hear a story about magic, love, fighting, crafting and puts it all into a story so compelling you don't want to stop? Me to!
That is exactly what I got. Christopher and Jessica's mingled so well. Can't wait to hear more
