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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

uncomfortable sex with a too powerful protagonist.

While the characters that aren't the main character seem pretty real (aside from the women) the main character is more or less a god which removes much drama.
Also the enemies are stupid powerful just because.
Also, also the women in this book are totally written as characters just for the protagonist to swoon and sleep with. I thought to was gross and ended up skipping several sexual scenes.
I don't love the narrator either, he makes everything seems... weird.
Story is cool though.

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

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.

The Destroyer
The Destroyer, Book 1
By: Michael-Scott Earle
Narrated by: Kevin T. Collins
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the unique characters and plot. The story opens with travelers waking a frail man that's been sleeping for a long time. Come to find out it has been a very, very long time! Like a thousand years! They bring him home with them. He perks up well with food and water because he kicks major a$$ right after that and just keeps getting better! The story bounces between the present and the past as the man starts to remember bits and pieces. It is very exciting and a big clash between the society life of the man and the travelers.
The narrator does an excellent job of making this book extraordinary!

The story is good but the sex is not.

It's a good job I use headphones my family would cringe. Not sure why we spend as much time detailing every nibble and kiss as we do describing large battles. I guess it is a fresh approach. Narrator has a good voice but delivery needs some work. But will listen to the next volume skipping the grinding chapters.

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.

Stupid Cliffhanger, Too Much Sex.

The story slowly degrades in quality as our powerful protagonist tries to sleep with everything female and has Vietnam flashbacks every couple of pages. Honestly, the story wasn't that bad. It would have just been preferable if the author didn't pad the book with so much crap to try force a terrible cliffhanger. The character's unfortunately weren't that memorable either.

Personally, I'd try something else. The quality never exceeds the first few chapters, so give them a listen and return it if you're not hooked in the first hour or so (best part of the book).
