Publisher's Summary

An existence spent being forced to kill others to satiate a monster. 

Where the only thing to look forward to was the blessed, if brief, period of time between paying that bribe. 

Except that very same monster is and isn’t Rene. 

It just happened to live inside his own mind and force him to do what it wanted. Rather than being an actual monster. 

That was Rene’s entire life until a fateful day changed that. Where he died in a mission gone wrong. 

When he met the Watcher in the afterlife, and took on a new life. A life of idyllic bliss that involved having a family. 

Until he was kidnapped and taken to a new city. A city where Rene broke free, set down roots, opened a business, an orphanage, an underground gang, and began taking over. 

Rene has become the Hood, the Mask, and young Anatolis all in one. 

Where he continues to take more power with the Anatolis bankroll, his blade, or someone else’s blood. 

Except as he gains more power, he becomes more of a target. 

With every day, more people are targeting one of his lives and what they can take from him. 

The city is about to be pitched head-first into the front lines of more than one fight to the death. 

It has no idea, and it’s one true defender is a serial-killer turned hitman who became a bounty-hunting money-lender that moonlights as a gang leader. 

All before the month is over. 

Warning and minor spoiler: This novel contains graphic violence, undefined relationships/harem, unconventional opinions/beliefs, and a hero who is as tactful as a dog at a cat show. Listen at your own risk.

over the top

William, please tone down the crazy nymphs when you are on the PG side of the house. you have a score of books by two different authors all telling the same story. but William D. Arand is supposed to be the PG side.

second, Andrea P. has the most amazing range. I mean WOW!

If you were looking forward to book 2 .....

*sigh* The first book provides not a new concept but one with an interesting twist to the character. He is very flawed, dealing and coming to terms with himself and his monster. There are character conflicts, juggling miltiple personae as well as dealing with multiple relationships that don't know about each other.

Conflict is good, keeps a readers/listeners interest. All conflicts and flaws are removed within the first hour of this book. The multiple women are just all happy to share the MC with no questions. The revelations of the MC and who hes is and his past is met with a "meh" from the group and left me just confused. The build up was for nothing.

I am about 3.5 hours in the MC's "harem" is now up to 10. All but 2 are forgettable throwaway damsels in distress with such cheesey dialogue that I cannot finish this book.

The Narrator doea a great job with what she can.

Not as good as book one.

If you have followed William D. Arand starting with Otherlife Dreams, you know that his series overlap. This is interesting and enjoyable for the fans. The leading male protagonist in Monster Mercy 1 & 2 has considerable potential. He is a very colorful character. However, I felt that in this sequel he was overshadowed by his harem and defanged and declawed. He wasn't as strong as he was in the first book. That doesn't mean that the book wasn't enjoyable. It was entertaining. Mr. Arand does a good scifi story and has a flair for harems. If you are a fan than it isn't a bad pick. It just isn't as good as the first book and the male protagonist was disappointing.

Too much harem

The action is great and the narrator is fantastic, although male voices often sound too similar, requiring context clues to distinguish who's speaking. The harem aspect was boring and clumsy, with characters frequently grinding the story to halt while they profess, at length, their fanatic and inexplicable devotion to Rene. Nearly every female character is attracted to him, even if they only know him as a masked serial killer. The author's other titles handle it better. Here, it was annoyingly predictable by the end.

Excellent

This is one of my favorite series of William D Arand, it’s so nice to finally get it on audiobook and of course by the incomparable Andrea Parsneau. The characters are marvelous the story is fantastic- funny, suspenseful and draws you ever deeper into Rene’s world and mind. The sculpting of the story by Andrea is marvelous as always she certainly enhances an already marvelous story. I truly love her work and William’s writing which I have already read many times! I can’t wait to get the 3rd book!

Awesome!

The cross-series tie-ins come thick and fast in this one so things are definitely building in the Runnerverse. This is a typical WDA book with harems which build beyond the management capacity of any mortal man. Anyway, a good read that moves well, and some diverse action broke things up effectively without derailing the story.

Not as good as the first book

The biggest gripe I have with this book is how characters are introduced at a fast pace and then discarded. The story has kind of just petered out after the 50% mark as well and it takes on a feeling of; this thing happen and also this and both are irelavent; then this and this happen which are also irrelevant and so forth.

Side story

If I was rating this series by itself and not part of a giant multiverse of authors and series then it would be a lower rating. But it is part of those, which makes this a great side story in my opinion. Please read the other stories in the world before this series.
