Publisher's Summary

Sean was just waiting for his best friend to show up at the bar so they could play some pool. It came as a shock when the tall blonde man accosted Sean and demanded that he change seats. His refusal would change his life.

When the fight ended, Sean found himself in the strangest meeting of his life. Odin, Archangel Michael, Lucifer, and Morrigan all vied for his soul, each offering different deals. Sean had to choose, so he chose to go with the goddess of Fate, Death, and Battle.

Placed on a new world, gifted with a new body crafted by the gods, and more gifts from other deities of the Tuatha De Danann, Sean now has the chance to live out a new life on a new world. Not everything will be sunshine and roses, however, in this world ruled by the Summer and Winter Queens. He learns quickly that words have power in this world, and that Agreements are binding. 

Sean has his work cut out for finding his place in this new world.

great book

enjoyed this book thoroughly, I can't wait for book 2 to hit audio soon after it's completion. Mr. Schinhofen has created yet another series that I will be waiting on pins and needles for the next installment.

Best female narration I've ever heard

I'll start with the narrator. She is my absolute favorite female narrator, and the only narrator I like more than her is R C Brey. She can do some of the best masculine voices (for her gender), and has a vast array of female voices that are truly unique. 10 out of 10 for narration.

The story is also quite good, however I do have a few gripes. Mostly I just felt the book was either too short or not enough was really happening, there is too much of the same ole same ole. There are also parts I felt could've been shortened greatly and others that I'd like to have seen fleshed out. I'd still like to point out I loved the story and am greatly looking forward to the next. I also like the fact that even though the sex in this book is extremely limited, the author still put a great deal of effort into writing the parts where there is and didn't over or under indulge the audience in it. I'd give the author a 8 of 10.

Epic Gamelit Adventure!

Good story and narration!

MC's buddy invites him to hang out at a bar, and while Sean is waiting for his buddy to show up, a stranger picks a fight with him. Stuff happens, and gods compete for his sole (turns out he got killed by Thor). Choosing his deity, Sean gets transported to a world with game mechanics with abilities and a body crafted by a pantheon - free from commitments, but with the hope that he can right a distant wrong. Gamer shenanigans ensue...

I loved this book! I can't wait for more!

Note:
This story is Haram Gamelit - this genera often contains explicit scenes

Very short

I prefer the first book in a series be longer.

While I find several of the contrivances trite, there's a lot to like. The nature of the MC's gifts is interesting and different, and there's more humor than I expected.

Great Narrator, Decent Story, Poor Writing

The narrator is excellent, and the story is fine, if a bit derivative (it's basically a wish fulfillment fantasy about a boringly decent fellow who becomes good at everything). The writing is hamfisted and a sometimes cringe-worthy, particularly regarding the romance subplot.

Don't let the cover art fool you.

Anyone familiar with Daniel Schinhofen or Andrea Parsneau would likely buy this book for that alone. But we all have likely let a cover we weren't enthused about dictate our ultimate decision.

I really enjoyed this book and while I might have made some different decisions at one time or another. I am excited to read the next installment.

decent narration, no story

I think a more appropriate title for the book would be "Fiona and her cringe slave"

RANT...
The mc is a doormat he is effectively indoctrinated the moment he gets into a new world and simply does not understand how he's being used which is frustrating for the reader.
An example would be where mc attempts to compliment fiona it was obviously a compliment but because of 'dumb culture' it's a insult. a normal person would let this go explain what he did was wrong and why. she does not, she swears she never wants to see him again and some other bull. This is made even worse because the only reason mc is in the village is to learn about the culture as is said in his deal making her a hypocrite and a vile evil human being. of course mc eventually makes amends by swearing to do anything she says effectively except less obvious cause slavery might make this more than a snooze fest.

The worst part of the book though is the lack of story there basically is none. the entire book is effectively trying to sleep with fiona and that's it and I guess some tree chopping but that's about as intresting as watching paint dry so no fun either.

The 'twist' was unrealistic and immature no reason just like a 12 year old decided to change up the genre from romance/erotica to detective/thriller. people general have a reason for slaughtering a entire village they dont just be like today I'm gonna kill everyone I've lived with for a decade.

The only good bit was the meeting with the gods and even that was mostly fueled by the premise the writer had no idea where this was going and its painfully obvious when the most intreasting thing that happens In the book is MC cutting down FOUR trees. Incredible I know.

I think the author included litrpg elements to draw in readers but had no intention of writing a litrpg beyond the bare minimum for amazon to accept it. it is a unethical thing to do but I'm pretty sure the author only cares about sales.

i wont be reading on this writer shows no talent in delivering a story and that's the most important part in fantasy.

Morrigan's Bidding:Binding Words,Book1

Daniel Schinhofen shows us all again how talented he is with this book. I love this book in the book form on Kindle but with the Narration talent of Andrea Parsneau who voiced the feeling of the characters in this book is fabulous I would love to give this book ten stars it's a must to own on your audible. ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆.
