Publisher's Summary

After years of slavery, subjected to torments of body and spirit by the inhuman Kin, Travis Sterling can barely recall his old life. Memories of Earth, and of disappointing his family barely seem real anymore.

But even without the occasional voice in his head, Trav knows he’s different. A vast amount of rune crafting knowledge has mysteriously taken up residence in his mind; too bad he doesn’t have any mystical power. If he could find a way to actually use any rune magic, his situation could change.

The stubborn, unbroken man burns for justice, but despite his strange abilities, he stands no chance against the Kin. In the near future, when Trav comes face to face with complete destruction, his mettle and creativity will be tested. Will he perish, or will he grasp a chance to shake the foundations of his new world?

A VeilVerse Story. 

Note: This series was written for adults. Asgard Awakening contains morally grey situations, polyamory, fantasy violence, and slavery. Please do not attempt dangerous rune magic at home.

Teeny Read

Infantile use of profanity and poor, unbelievable performance makes for a disappointing read. This book should be placed in a teen category.

Asgard Awakening book 1

Blaise Corvin is a talented and skilled author and it shows in this book. I love this book from start to finish the characters a well written and the world is very insightful and also with the narration of the talented Andrea Parsneau her voice acting skills makes the characters come to life. 12/10 stars I can't wait to buy the next audio book in this series ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆,......

Another good series to listen to

Since 2 of my favorite authors decided to write parallel in the same universe I've been very excited. And now that I've listened to their first books I'm not disappointed! The world is interesting, the characters have depth and the story is a page turner (or the audio equivalent). The narration is also a piece of art. My advice: Give it a try. The other author is William D. Arand with 'Cultivating Chaos'. I hope this becomes a long series of good books :D

O gods

No major flaws in the story. Only my personal dislike of harems. Thankfully no overly graphic sex senses.The narrator did an excellent job as always.

An excellent Ride!

Another great start to a fine series I’m sure. I find the characters interesting and complex and can’t wait to see them mature. The plot is a very interesting question of power and sensibility.
Andrea Parsneau has done another masterful job in the narration, and has brought all of the characters to life.
I will be waiting for the next books in the VeilVerse series they have both been excellent. I love your work Blaise Corvin!

Seeingthe world through one eye

So, I’m going to break this down a little differently, because I will be reviewing Cultivating Chaos right after this, so I’m going to bunch up Andrea’s narration onto the second book, for reasons.

So, first of all, Kudos to Corvin and Arand for having the balls to try and pull something like this off. WE now have a LITRPG Thieves World type of Universe, where they can invite any other authors in to play in their sandbox. I could easily see (just to name a few) Dakota Krout, James Hunter, Dave Willmarth, MSE or even Harmon Cooper getting in to this playground. Or none of them. This is just to exciting an idea. The veilverse is about various worlds that are interconnected by dimensional shifting curtains wear reality wears thin. People can crossover through these curtains and interact with new worlds. Here the main characters in both books come from Earth, although Corvin’s character is sent to Asgard.
While there he is given the mantle of Odin, and slowly grows into his role as a new god. Trav is a good guy who has some horrible things done to him as a slave in an underground mine. When the time comes he makes an escape and sets about growing his power by binding women to him as he goes along. He learns to settle into his new abilities such as runecrafting and knowing things that Odin knew. The book started out looking like it was going to be a straight up revenge book, but it quickly evolved into something so much more. I have to say, I have been patiently waiting on my Delvers, but so long as books like this keep coming I won’t complain. . . much. Still waiting on the Luck Stat part duex.
Corvin certainly crafts a great story and populates his world with interesting powers, people, and prices. I don’t think that anything that Trav does doesn’t come without a cost to him in one way or another. One thing that sort of struck me odd was that Blaise does try out the Harem gig at last, and I’m not sure if he went that route because of who he partnered with or if he just wanted to give it a try. Again, not a bad thing, just not something I expected out of Blaise. I daresay that he even went further than Arand did in the naughty dept.

The world that he builds with the Kin, the Asgardian, the other new gods all comes together is cohesive universe that just sucks you in. My only possible complaint is that this book is shorter than Cultivating Chaos. I would have liked to have seen them be about the same length for a starter series, but I am not complaining because the quality is there and the characters are compelling. I cannot say I like one MC over another, but that I simply cannot wait for the next book in this series.

Andrea’s part will come up in the Cultivating Chaos segment.


Final Score 8.4 stars. Smooth like lagavulin whiskey.




Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. Getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

A Fun Delve into a Norse Universe

I was initially skeptical of this book because of the plethora of Norse stores that are popular now. I was pleasantly surprised with The VeilVerse stories. They take only enough to build believeable worlds with intriguing character development and build in whole new directions.

You don’t need to read any other VeilVerse book to get this story, but you can read about another concurrent story line featuring Ash in Cultivating Chaos.

Can't wait for more

Definitely going to be watching for the next book. It is certainly good to know how Trav is while Ash cultivates

Loving the VeilVerse

Great addition to the VeilVerse. Trav is a great MC and I’m liking how this is tying in with Cultivating Chaos. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.
Andrea Parsneau did a great job as usual.

bi-polar godling

I love the magic rune system and the valkyries, but the mc is a bi-polar asshole that just ruins the story.

Exciting crossover.

I read William D.Arand's Cultivating Chaos first and decided to give this book a go as the pair of authors are working on the 'VeilVerse' project together. Both books compliment each other well and have plenty of action and interesting plots to keep you hooked after the first few chapter. Andrea Parsneau is an 3xcellent narrator and really brings extra weight to these stories. Already looking forward to more in this series!
