Publisher's Summary

Steve doesn’t know who he was. He does know a lot more than he did previously, though. He’s in a country called Lamals where men are required to have children, then more often than not, go fight and die. And that’s just how it is.

Things are at least improving, though. Steve successfully put a stop to the Creep’s advance. He’d buried it under a mountain of broken wall and escaped with his life. Which eliminates one enemy. The creep and its undead.

Now, he only has to worry about bandits, the military, the country of Lamals, and other people.

With that problem nearly solved, Steve can worry about problems closer to home. After all, his only true concerns are about his farm and his family. That’s all he really needs. Everyone else are little better than a resource to be utilized.

Unfortunately, things still aren’t what they seem to be. The messages Steve left himself pointed at something beyond their contents. Now, that "something more" is about to make contact with him. On top of that, the farm is going to hit capacity eventually. Especially if one factored into it that Steve was likely going to have children at some point in the future.

Family troubles and more problems than he could expect are about to find Steve. Shooting up as if they were trees grown with his over-powered watering can.

Good thing Steve has his axe. Any problem can be solved with it...with the right application of force.

Warning: 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. This story is an adult fantasy novel.

same old same old

Up until now I really like this author but this is the first book that I just could not finish. It is to much the same as all of his other books there is nothing new or exciting about this book. Which just made it too hard to continue listening to it as it was like I was listening to the same story but with different characters. I really tried to like this book but it was just too boring too much of the same with nothing new to make it interesting.

A bit darker then the first one

didn't enjoy it as much as the first book but that's because some people i really liked died. it's still the best book I've listed to out of the last 8 litrpg books. good writing, good voice acting. nothing to complain about. not really sure what to say that's not a spoiler, like I could take a while guess at how this links in to the SV but nothing is clear at this point.

Remnant book 2

Randi Darren is one of the most talented and skilled author .And I must say that this series is one of the most enjoyable experience I have listen to. And with the voice acting talents and skills of Andrea Parsneau who makes the characters and world come alive with her narration . I can't recommend this book enough to all the listeners and readers. 12/10 stars a must to listen to and owned.....

Steve stops being relatable and into a sociopath.

Enjoyed the first book and the first half of the second book. But soon after Steve stops having limits or morals when dealing with others. Enslaving thousands and cold heartedly killing most who simply annoy him. He flips out when someone does not agree to submit to him using or killing them. Goes into chapter long tirades about everyone else wanting to use and control him, even when he has not met or spoken to them. But seems no problem invading and pillaging any group of people within a day or so travel. This book suffers from many characters from the last book being left to the wayside as the author rams a legion of new characters into the story. The emotional investment and development in these characters pushed into the background leaves me feeling their lose through out the book. While uninspired repetitive new characters are dumped out in a few chapters to replace 3/4 of the original characters. The way they are shoehorned into the plot leaves the reader to feel like the new student in a new school, states away from any old friends. Overall Steve strength and abilities stop being powerful and creative, to simply stupidly overpowered. God mode cheat level enough that there is no longer any challenges he can not just walk thru and punch. The excitement and conflict level soon after is on par with my next bowel movement. 80% of the character, plotlines, world building, and pacing are brilliant. Even with all my critiquing of the writing, I enjoy what the story SHOULD be. I feel like the author either decided to 180 the storyline arc half way thru the second book and did not have time to rewrite the book to fit the new direction. Or the author tried to edit amd condense two or more books into this one, to fit a proposed trilogy pattern the author has.

Main Character is a spoiled tool

Over powered MC starts out as a harem master but at least thinks slavery is bad. Then changes his mind to: Slavery is bad, unless I am the slave master. So become my slave or die. Please kill this series off. Thanks.

BUY IT NOW!!!

Awesome book, author, and of course awesome narrator. Put them all together and you can't ask for anything better. Can't wait for the next one. I did receive a code for this book but in no means did it sway my opinion.

Did not like this book

Steve has become my least sympathetic main character in the author's Sovereign Verse. *No spoilers* but he's inconsistent and generally unlikable, and often way too dark. I thought book 1 had potential, and was hoping for more of the same. But I had to force myself to finish this book, which I regret, and book 3 will be unread.

Didn't sit right with me

I couldn't finish this one. Book one Steve sees the way men are really treated throughout Lamals. It disturbs him that they get thrown into "pigpens." At the end of book one he goes as far as calling the Commander a slaver as if it's a bad thing (which it absolutely is.) Now in book two Steve becomes a massive hypocrite. He captures a bunch of people and forces them to work or die. They try to justify that their lives a forfeit anywhere else because they have the murder tag. They stress that point heavily. Like the fact that they repeat it somehow makes it better. Slavery by any other name is still slavery. I think the author knew that it was bad because at the same time they throw in an, "at least we aren't child killers" bit. You can't justify slavery to me. Calling people "resources" is disgusting. I'm just gonna leave this one unfinished and pass on book three.

Sometimes a plot twist isn't good

For the most part, I like Sovereign Universe books. However It feels like a something was ether rushed or a plot point was forgotten in the middle of the story, to catalyst a story arc that didn't have enough push on it's own to get it moving. I'll listen to the next one just to finish this set of books. But I think this is low point of these books so far.

Truly Appalling!

The books reads like an incel school shooters rape fantasy. Randi Darren/ William D Arand can and has written better, and should be ashamed of the poor quality of this book and series. There is nothing redeeming about this work and I can only hope there is not a third. The only possible reason to listen to it is for hints regarding the authors greater literary universe, and considering the effort involved, such hints and really not work it. Words cannot express how loathsome each and every character is, which combined with the tacit encouragement of sexual violence and lack of internal self awareness makes this book almost criminal to listen to.
