Publisher's Summary

Alex Rogers is a young, intelligent workaholic who jumped from high school to college to a technical career with little time for a personal life. With his dog Kinsey, he pursues his only vice, wandering in the wilderness areas of Washington State, dreaming of adventure.

Without warning, he and Kinsey find themselves in an unfamiliar land, unable to speak the language and fighting for their lives. It is here that Alex discovers he has been dropped in the middle of an ancient struggle for power, in a land where magic replaces science. If he can survive the near future, he has the potential to become a great wizard feared by the very people he needs to protect.

Odd one

If you were a protagonist that is from 2015 that gets transported from earth into a new fantasy world, then you proceeded save people from being killed and those same people you saved treated you like crap and wanted to kill you, what would you do? Any normal person would tell them off and just walk away I hope? NOT begin to travel with them, trust them not to kill you while you sleep and not fall head over heels for one of the people within a HOUR of the G.D. audio!!

The MC must be really damn desperate and or the Author is catering to someone and made them said person that was saved.

Nothing new

A rather common story without the best character development. I still enjoyed listening to the entire book and would recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of light reading.

A fun listen

This books story is nothing new but that isn't really a bad thing in my opinion. It kept me intertained and moved at a fairly fast pace so I didn't get bogged down in over complicated subplots and such. over all a good book to listen to while doing something like work or playing a game.

Fantasy & Full of Action = Fun Adventure

This book is an action packed alternate fantasy about a guy who is transported from the world we know of science and technology to one built on the laws of magic. If your thinking that the concept sounds cliche your not wrong; boy get transported to alternate fantasy world certainly isn't new but cliche does not equal bad. The author takes the concept and tells an enjoyable story. I don't think there was a wasted scene at all in the book which is great... though I didn't go though it with a fine tooth comb. I am sure you could poke holes if you tried hard enough; heck I was enjoying it so I probably subconsciously dismissed any note worthy incongruities.

Lit Rpg and light fantasy readers will probably like this...

needs more

The concept and story are great. It's missing alot of details. The main character gets things so easy and the story has no explanation on how things happen.

Starts strong but becomes cliche

Turns a strong female character into a damsel in distress. Girls go from not trusting the mc to liking him within a day. Everything seems to go the mc's way. There is no real conflict.

Narration was great though.

quite terrible

Fast paced drivel. Reminds me of a story passed down over generation's and the details have been lost and just the general idea is left, or maybe the author is 12. This is shameful considering a 14 year old wrote Eragon.
