Publisher's Summary

Adventurers never die, they just fade away.

They called him Sven, the Shatterfist. One of a group of heroes who fought the Demon Lord Mannon. He's finally returned home.

But for Sven, after returning from abroad, life isn't what it used to be. Adventuring isn't what it used to be. Things have changed. Something is different.

The obvious next step? Retire. Settle down. Start his own tavern. Drink with magic girls.

Maybe not in that order.

I couldn't listen long to this.

I like the premise of the book but the narrator kept pausing before every weapon or spell name like the editors cut a clip of each word and pasted them in when they came up making it sound the same. It bothered my ears so much I couldn't keep listening to it. I'm just going to read the book instead.

Narration was terrible

The worst preformance by sierra kline I have heard. I dont see why every other word is prononced like they are written in caps.

great except for the Parson and stutter

the constant pausing and going into that blank that kind of form it's kind of annoying it pulls me out of the book

Narrator unnecessary pause

It's a good story but the narrator will do this pause where you can hear the air quotes, but just for some objects, spells, or attack moves. Other then that good narration

Even better on audio.

I read this book. Heck, I read the next one too. I loved the story and this time I was able to listen to the adventure while at work. It helped my day go by that much faster and I thoroughly enjoyed the narration being brought to life. Would recommend 10/10

Can I get my.....money.....back???

So great concept but the way the reader pauses for items and other words is just to annoying to continue listening to the book.

Poor narrative

Poor choice of spin on Narration. consistent pausing before weapons or attacks. completely ruins the immersion.

Copy paste

Amazing story ruined by copy paste audio. He chopped with his......."broadsword".... a ......"enchanted arrow".... shot past. Excellent story but the audio was angering.

.

great narrator, loved the story, wish it was a bit longer. Old tropes with new motivations
