Publisher's Summary

After untold centuries of absence, the evil Ancients have returned. Their magic appears unstoppable and their hunger for conquest is insatiable. To protect the country of Nia, Duchess Nadea and Scholar Paug make a desperate journey to find a human legend: a man known to have destroyed these Ancient foes with a powerful army.

But legends can lie.

When Paug and Nadea revive their hero from sleep, his virtue is far from clear.

Is he really their savior or their destroyer?

Contains mature themes.

story had potential.

story was pretty good overall. I like the premise of the book. but the author has to be a 12 year old boy. this book isn't as bad as the second one. but there's just terribly dumb sex scenes everywhere. I like sex as much as the next guy. but it's absolutely ridiculous in these books . I'm not sure if this is a fantasy or a sexual fantasy book . I'm not sure that the author really knows what sex is. I think he has some pornographic fantasies that he tries to ride in these books. whatever I'll probably get a refund on these two.

obvious first attempt by the narrator.

narrator read the entire book with no pitch or accent change so it was difficult to follow. who's speaking Kaiher? Pog? oh no that's Nadia

Game of Thrones Fanfiction

I felt as if this book was written by a teenager based off of the vernacular the characters were using. Also, there was a lot of sexually explicit content that felt very awkward to listen to. It definitely improved in the ending chapters in terms of wordplay and word structure.

Good but

OK I have 2 problems with the boo. that said number one is that voice actor didn't have enough range in this voice and characters, and was monotone for the majority of the book. number two is that we really didn't need the second point of view from Pawg after the first two times and just feels like filler due to his lack of significance.

Dont know what the fuss is about

This is a good book. Its exactly as its described. For people that say that the narrator is monotone, maybe check your speakers or headphones. Collins brings a lot of infelction and emotion to the story. For people that complain about the sex scenes, it says mature at the bottom and those scenes are few and far between. I will say that the sex is a little unimaginative and repetitive in nature, like the MC is a one trick pony. As for whats really important, the story is entertaining, the chatacters are fleshed out and 3 dimensional (FYI, the MC is pretty OP), and the action scenes are excellent.

horrible narration.

I really wanted to enjoy the book. But the narrator was just too bad.
I'm just over five hours in when I finally had to give up.

was this written by a horny 15 year old?

the story is... ok. but quickly fades to middling crap of main character trying to screw every frmale he can. bland sex scenes and just the worst "flirting". ignores the other possible cool aspects and just meanders around.

Expected More

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

better storyline development, sex in a book is ok, but when that's the most developed part of the story, yeah its lacking.

Has The Destroyer turned you off from other books in this genre?

it has when it comes to this author

How could the performance have been better?

better storyline and more than just sex

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Any additional comments?

don't buy it the comments that its written for a 15 year old are real

Ok story; bad performance

Performer didn’t provide differing voices at all which made it confusing as to who was speaking and made the dialogue unbearable. Likewise the way the reader spoke had weird things emphasised which just made it all the worse... the story itself is also rather basic but still good.
