Publisher's Summary

Forged Bonds was growing fast and becoming the talk of the city. Those opposed to Sean and his new association would be forced to act quickly, and so Sean was called to City Lord Sharpeyes’ party, where traps had been laid for him.

After crushing the first obstacle, he was now set to fight a duel as Fredrick’s champion. Sean won the duel handily, once he got past the surprise of facing both Aria and Cuander, Lord Sharpeyes’ prized cuon, and went on to save Aria from death at the hands of Lord Sharpeyes’ son, Knight Evan Sharpeyes.

But Sean’s troubles are just beginning. The plans Lord Sharpeyes have set into motion began to unfold, setting the stage for events that will push Sean to his limits.

(This work contains adult situations that some might find offensive, the least of which is graphic sex. This book is about an Overpowered MC and contains a harem. You’ve been warned.)

World building with cheeky humour and a bang

Andrea Parsneau as always is a master of voices and with so many characters I wonder how she keeps track. Daniel Schinhofen is a Master at World building and Character building. I love the flushing out the characters and giving them their own personalities and after 10 hours the action started up to finish it off. If you enjoy the world building and characters actually interacting with each other and the cheeky humour that goes with it with some action Highly recommend these books and his other ones mainly his Apocalypse Gate series.

I don't even know what to feel about this book.

First of all, i don't think i have ever heard a bad performance by Andrea Parsneau. And this book is no exception.
.
This entire series has been sort of a hit and miss for me. I liked the first book, didn't like the second, loved the third, liked the forth, and this one i don even know...

I liked most of this book, however some parts i didn't like, for example i dont like listening to sexual assaults of any kind no matter how small of a part it plays in a book... Nor do i like the way the author "meta-writes" the story, the antagonists are always a step ahead and the MC only barely manages to keep up. Also, if you have to cripple the MC before every major event so he cant use his full power, in order to make it more interesting, you just shouldn't have given him the power in the first place. What's the point of having an OP MC if he is never allowed to be OP when it counts?

Lastly the ending to this book was in my opinion, terrible. It was frustrating to listen to, it was predictable, it was forced. Some of the antagonists got what was coming to them, and i didn't even care because of how forced the writing felt.

good as the rest.

Though I'd say the title dealing with war is a bit of a misnomer. There was fighting but it's far from a war maybe a cold war at best. it's still more of what you loved from the last books if you read the ones before.

been waiting for this book to come out for.so long

the story ends on a cliffhanger. but I will say yes the book is well worth the wait. having said that I can not wait for the next book to come out. being an 18 wheeler driver makes audiobooks the best way to go. and spoiler the bloopers at the end had me laughing my head off. thank God my trailer was getting loaded when I heard that part. I might have had trouble driving with how might laughing I did.

Twists and turns and plot movement, oh my!

What an excellent entry into this stupendous series. At first I was able to put the book down but once I hit the halfway point, it was nonstop reading of epic storytelling.

The development of the plot reminds me a lot of what the MC says: I just want to craft. There is a lot of day to day life happening and I loved it. Some days were sped up or skipped because we knew what was happening, but otherwise we got some great details and pacing in the day to day life of the MC and his bonded.

There was certainly some political shenanigans happening, but not so much as to be intrusive or derailing to the overall story.

The end tied together quite nicely with some surprises, THEN IT STOPPED! A few people have complained about the cliffhanger ending but I thought it was great. I was already going to get the next book in the series, but now I'm going to actively watch for updates until it drops.

Great entry into an intriguing series that I cannot wait to continue.

totally disappointed but keep hoping

I have being given 5 stars on all the books hopping that it gets better on the sex department. But I will give an spoiler as it makes me mad, I was hoping big time on the sex scene with felora as is the character I like the most and hope the author will to something special about her as it has being doing for all but he just gave half of it and left me with blue balls, kinda of speaking and that pissed me off.
The history is great and pretty good imagination, but the fact that he decided not to elaborate on that character sex scenes make it looks clear that he doesn't want to make this for all types of likings, he just want to be everything look pure love and no fetishism at all. I understand it on the first 4 books as he was developing more lovavel characters, but he decided to used a succubus and just left you hanging, that is totally wrong.

Even though I enjoy the whole book a lot and I will be reading the next book and I already have gave him 5 stars on the 4 previous books, even though I wanted more sex scenes, I kept hoping he will at least give one or the great scenes on every book, but cutting the succubus scene is just totally wrong and the only thing I can do about it is make this review and give 1 star as a punishment for not thinking to all audiences

Really enjoyed it

Typical of his wrighting style. follows the typical lines of a heram, hero style book, with a self awair twist. As usual Andrea reads it brilliantly.
some characters could have done with being fleshed out a little more. as they follow a typical good vs bad (for the sake of greed and power) with very little other personality to them. but there are a few characters that stand out. over all its not the most amazing series, but I'm still looking forward to the next book. over all the series has been enjoyable, and its worth spending a few credits on.

Great Audiobook!

I must admit this is way better than the original book. It is apparent that the author made a minor change to this audiobook due to the feedback of the book 😉.
The story continues from Forge Bonds. It weaves a wonderful storyline the hold many ups and downs. The story finally allows Sean to really break out and start to show his worth.
I can say there are many WTF 🤔 and “Give me a break” moments. But without a doubt this is a great story!
5*

Another Hit

Once again a great job done by Daniel Schinhofen and brought to life by the awesome talent that is Andrea Parsneau. Can't wait for book 6 in this series, keep up the good work. This book is technically 18+ in parts but not the focus, only adds to the charters development.
