there were no previous customers reviews... and im sorry but I can see why.. I just couldn't get interested in the characters or the story, the narration was just irritating and put the final nail home.. I havent stopped listening this early into a story in a long long while... hopefully some other readers will give a contradictory review and I will revist it ...

I gave the omnibus 4 stars primarily because I don't want to scare potential listeners away from these books. I wasn't sure about the quality of them as I got through the first book. The dialogue was overly dramatic and it took away from the relatively unique storyline. However, as the books progressed the author went away from the gratuitous drama and I sincerely enjoyed the rest of the books. I'm excited to hear the upcoming books. I definitely recommend this one but I'm giving fair warning that the first book may be tough to get through for hardcore fans of this genre.

I tried. I really did. I forced my way through 5 hours of this garbage. It never got better. If anything it either progressively got worse, or it's lack of improvement just pissed me off more and more.
The narrator's voice was achingly bad... and yet it was probably the best thing about the story.
I haven't looked the author up, but if his writing style is any clue, I'm going to guess he is about 13 years old, with no formal story writing training or education.
There was no character development... just a ridiculous hero, going through life like a normal millennial on his way to an engineering Masters program... when Bam!! He is left some mystical swords as an inheritance. Good thing he conveniently received all of that ninja training from his grandfather while he was growing up, because now he is prepared to handily defeat seasoned warriors and warlocks after making his way to another world... with dragons.
The dialogue made me cringe so hard, I pulled some face muscles. The developing love story made me seriously wanna toss my cookies. It was so predictable and unoriginal that what didn't nauseate me, just made me angry.
I'm upset at the misleading rave reviews. I feel sorry for those listeners if this is the best they've found so far.
I personally want a refund and compensation for the suffering this book caused me.
