Nov 23, 2019 rated it did not like it
This story has no structure to it. It is flat with no depth. Things happen and the protagonist reacts but his motivation feels artificial, constructed to get to the next plot point rather than from any human emotion. The fight sceens are okey, but again, without solid motivational stakes I don't care about the outcome. Overall, disappointingly boring, like biting into that slice of cake that looks so good on the plate but is made up of sugar and oil that leaves your mouth sickly sweet and your s ...more

My review is based on the audible version of this book. I really wanted to like this, there is so much potential in the story line, but it's incredibly difficult to get through:

1.) This has a problem most of these litRPG have; there is no build up to anything. He shows up in a world and is like 'I will protect you guy no matter what'! No one, no matter how self sacrificing, acts that way. Most of the issues could have been solved by more details and much more of a build up. I don't care about an

Something's missing

All in all it is a very well done book. The grammar, spelling, and punctuation are all on point. Many indie authors seem to skimp on editors/editing but that is not the case here.

I'm going to read the next book, so this book isn't bad, but there's something off to me. Perhaps it's the repeated phrases or things being stated then stated again slightly differently either in the same paragraph or the next. It's not terrible, it doesn't ruin the book, I just remember catching thos

Shelves: 6, sex-scenes
Not terrible I suppose. It is readable but nothing special, and I found the sex scene at the end a bit silly. Not much to say about this one. He becomes a dragon in another world and starts helping some town after encountering an group of adventurers. Characters are okay, writing is okay, plot is okay. If you have anything better to read, read that instead but reading this is sufficient to pass the time. Don't think I will read the next book though. ...more

Less and more than I had hoped

I was really hoping for a good fantasy wuxia/litRPG novel. It's sort of that. There's a significant amount of romance that actually fights with the adventure elements of the story. If you like romance with adventure thrown in, then go for this. Here's to hoping the main character stops oogling women at inopportune times in the next book.

All that glitters

Well I can honestly say I never expected that a dragon would glitter bomb someone to heal them. The pacing was good and I enjoyed the progression of the plot during the book. Overall I enjoyed it.

This is pretty average book from this author, better than some and weaker than others. Standard harem elements with a side of cultivation makes the focus a bit diffuse, but the development of the MC's dragon personality (hoarding, etc.) might be interesting so I'll give book 2 a try. ...more

Immature writter

Some of the reviews said this book reads like a preteen
wrote it, and I have to agree. From the very simple story, to the gratuitous use of "fuck", way too often, and the descriptive sex at the end, all seem amateurish at best. Would not recommend this book.

Awesome read!

Don't know why I waited so long to get into this series. The book was fantastic from beginning to end, with well developed characters, a vibrant world we're only just beginning to explore and an amazing story I couldn't put down

Great start to a great series!

Pretty alright

It's alright, there's some typos and the plot is pretty decent but a bit haphazard at times. It's a book that you could read and there's worse options out there.

Good Read, not steller

Good Story, the flow seemed to skip a few times, my disbelief rose up once or twice as well. Overall, decent, but not impressive.

I liked the anime feel of the story and the story was decent. I want to read the second book to see what happens but I don't know if I will. This book could have easily been 100 pages shorter. To many repeats of the same information that not only you know as the reader but the main character too. Repeating the same information over and over. To many times we are standing, sitting or pacing around talking about this same info. There wasn't enough action and instead of repeating info I wanted to k ...more

A nice change!!

I spent the last 2 years reading other cultivation books and normally by now the three mc's love is already taken away or left behind.. it's nice that they are still together.. i dislike that this book is so short lol. I know there is more but I am greedy with good story's.. the love seem was to short lol but that's my own naughty nature. Keep up the good works!!!🤭😋🤫

3 to maybe 3.5 stars, it was okay not the best book of this type but I did enjoy it and it does show potential. I have read a couple of different books by this author now and as I do enjoy them for the most part I find there is always something missed for his books to get into the 4 or 4.5 star range.
I will continue with the series as I do like books like this and I do find them worth reading.

A decent story line, no investment in the characters

This book was a chore to finish. I cared little about the characters, protagonists and antagonists alike. The very graphic sex scene at the end was shocking in there was no real buildup to the event. It was like a whole other author wrote it. There is some potential to the story, but it was executed poorly. It was proofread very well. I found no spelling or grammatical errors.
May 03, 2020 rated it did not like it
The best scene in this is right at the beginning, when the protagonist first turns into a dragon and is trying to get used to his new body, and that's in the free Kindle sample. Beyond that, the plot is dull and devoid of interesting characters, sprinkled with fan-service to try and keep you engaged. There are so many better dragon books out there, this one just isn't worth your time. ...more

I finished the book but doubt I'll continue with the series. I liked the idea as it is similar to a book I'm working on but the sex felt forced in this one and caused the plot to drag for me. Almost didn't finish it. I did enjoy the first third but then it seemed to get tedious. So A+ on the concept, C on execution. ...more

Another Great Series

Okay I admit I'm a huge Eric Call fan! This series is looking to be as excellent aS all the other ones. If you haven't already read his work so yourself a favor and read these books!

Couldn’t finish it

I’ve read other things I like by the author. This book just never captured my interest and I abandoned it after reading 75%. The characters, especially the main character, were not well developed making the story uninteresting.

Not written good at all, the story has potential but, it's Flat with no depth . Main character motivation feels artificial 'Airy fairy" Book does not built up has little structure to it. Feels like it is written by a 12 year old with no life experience... Would not recommend... ...more

Interesting book

I really like how the main character is a dragon. It makes the scenarios more interesting with the main friends and allies. The world is a Little different but it does seem to have the demon lord trope and a summoned hero.

Not quite sure what I read. It wasn't bad, I was entertained, and the novel is original. Our "hero" accidentally becomes a shape-shifting dragon in another dimension, helping the locals against the forces of evil. ...more

Good enough

It's not the best book I've ever read. But it is good enough for me to at least try book two.
