More than I hoped for

The action in and out of combat was more than I had hoped for. A great sequel to the first book and filled with so many of my personal fetish’s that it was almost required I listen by myself. If ya get my meaning. The only way it could have been better is if the narrator was female. Christian was awesome but the more erotic a book is the better with a female voice.

dick, pussy, now you know 1/3 of the book

This is bad. So here is the layout of the book. go out of there hideout, fuck now kill something. Go back to there hideout, fuck. It reads like a 15-year-old boy wrote this. There is less of a story than the first book. But I know that you read the first book so you're going to get this one. Good luck I do hope you like but I could not take it.

Female narrator needed

The story, book and premise was hot, and very interesting, with just the right amount of story and erotic tension between the main Character and his harem, but my only complaint is that it was read by a guy, I prefer these types of stories narrated by a woman, would make it that much hotter.

getting much better

his writing style is improving and I am very much enjoying this series. I talked to the author on Facebook and he gave me some insight and where it all started. he is a good guy with an impressive imagination and urge to turn that imagination into a world we can all visit and even call home.

so I say again if you like anime, harem, monster girls or lit rpg video game worlds with lots of sex and yes even love then you will enjoy this series.

Not sure what I expected

After being pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed all the characters in the first book; I had to listen to the second one. This is a series of books I plan on following and one that I hope doesn’t end anytime soon. It would make a hell of an anime too.

What a roller coaster ride!

A wild ride of action, passion and ecstasy, culminating in an unexpected twist... one hell of a continuation that leaves you asking what's coming next. Can't wait for the next adventure.

Second Book Same as the First

Christian Fox turned in another great performance.

The overall story by Prax Venter was enjoyable. However, I noticed the same problem in this book as the first book. Too many pointless sex scenes that added nothing to the characters or story. More than once I found myself going, "Didn't we just finish a sex scene?" when a new one started. After the half way point of the novel, it began to feel like the scenes were just there to pad the length of the book.

Quest Complete?!?!? Or is it????

Such an amazing follow-up to a great story! Strong female characters take the lead and we see the team grow into a "family". With a home. Great twist at the end, but don't fret, we received closure. Author is a pro at this genre. So glad I found this story. Definitely worth the credit. Enjoy!

Amazing but the ending...🤯!! (no spoilers)

So I'm not sure if there is a third book in the works but after finishing this book I'm desperate for closure. I'm not saying it's a cliffhanger but it definitely took on another level of depth and I couldn't help but feel for the MC situation. Overall the story was solid and my favorite scenes involve the antagonists that Prax Venter cooks up. I mean I wanted to curb stomp each and everyone of them. solid performance by Christian Fox too!
