Damien was a simple man, cruising on the highway of life. A goddess of temptation lures him into a deal he scoffs at. Superstition is for the foolish. Small problem: She's real, her ritual works, and Damien is magically teleported into a strange new realm.
Damien awakens in Nordan, a land of myth and magic. A realm where humans battle legendary creatures for the amusement of the gods. In a war between man and myth. Damien's powers set him above the rest, a lord of life and death - enemy of all. Stranded, but not alone, will he perish, or conquer his way home?

As the title says this is a review for Kindle Unlimited and as such is a reflection of my enjoyment of the book and in no way reflects cost to value analysis.
Pros - The story has a lot to it. I mean a whole lot. This isn't a read on a short flight kind of book, its a lose 7 hours of sleep and still not be done sized book. With that said, I found the pacing had a nice balance that allowed the story to flow. I certainly enjoyed turning the page. Characters. There is a big ensemble here. Some I hate, some I like, but each have their own personalities. Not every character is the MC sort of deal which was a nice change. The world building is amazing, the magic to clean with the lack of technology left me wanting to go there. I don't want to get too far down the spoiler road but I loved the system. If everyone prospers and there is only so much land there must be conflict. I can go on and on about the world, and that is because the story really weaves you through cities, and parts of the world that continue to expand the epic aspects. The book has been edited, that is clear, and I barely found any errors. I did find some odd sentences which took a second read.
Cons - It's a long book. Some may not like that but I wanted some sleep. I personally wanted to see the MC do some things differently, but he didn't do anything that made me want to toss the book in frustration.
Summary - This is a great book, and yeah, you should give it a shot. A solid 9/10. Is it perfect, no, but it is one heck of a ride and I am excited for book 2. I enjoyed reading about Damien and his adventures and am sad to have to wait for more.
There are the Deus Ex Machina moments where something unusual happens to the MC that nobody else has to deal with, things that surprise the gods themselves, with no explanation, most of which serve to nerf the character even more. I guess the idea is to give the character room to grow, but it definitely feels contrived.
He also has access to this amazing and rare class of magic... except it also seems completely nerfed. For the investment you have to put into it, I would expect more badassery, but instead his problems keep getting bigger and bigger.
I am also frustrated by the MC himself. Always so clever, yet he keeps getting surprised. His "allies" betray him at every opportunity (apparently nobody anywhere has any sort of integrity or morality outside his tiny circle), and he still tries to follow the moral high road. All these plans but even his perfectly executed ones don't make much of a difference. He keeps claiming his goal is to survive, but he sure acts like his goal is to be a victim. A true survival-oriented person isn't going to be wasting time trying to give their enemies the benefit of the doubt... they're not going to give them the opportunity to put him at a disadvantage. There were also plenty of opportunities to make some harsh examples out of especially dangerous or evil groups, and he chose not to do so.
I bought the trilogy, so I read it... but I don't think I'll be going any further with this. There's just no sense of accomplishment.

It's a typical litrpg, that goes on an army building adventure, and includes a hint of romance. Great asset to its genre, that really relies heavily on the familiar core concepts that I love.
At no point was I bored, at no point was I frustrated by stupidity. Decisions made sense, there was no BS betrayal by loved ones to ruin things, epic adventure and believable power climb!
