    This book is slice of life like a lot of this authors other books and by no means is a bad thing. However by the end of this novel I felt like nothing really happened. Since im a really nice guy i'll sum up the whole thing for you below in a few sentences to save you the time so you can move on to another book. Hopefully book 3 has more substance than this one.

However by the end of this novel I felt like nothing really happened. Since im a really nice guy i'll sum up the whole thing for you below in a few sentences to save you the time so you can move on to another book. Hopefully book 3 has more substance than this one. (view spoiler)[ Fiona and Myna are at odds with each other at first since Myna loves Sean and wants of a piece of that man meat but Sean wont give her any since it would feel like cheating on Fiona. Sean was raised to believe that a relationship is between 2 people not 3. Sean spends the first half of the book arguing with himself on whether or not to bang Myna. Sean surprises us with the totally shocking decision to to just give in. Did I mention that Fiona decided to life bond with Sean near the beginning of the book? Well she did, you know for reasons, like love or something... *shrug*. In between one of the towns they are traveling to they kill some bandits. Sean bonds the one with big knockers who turns out to have a sharpshooter type talent. It takes exactly 6.012 seconds (I counted using my special mental clock calculator) for this knew chick to hint at wanting to life bond Sean. Shes probably in love with him by that time but we wont know for sure until book 3, probably. Hopefully we get to experience Sean fight including her into the love triangle and then just give in like he did with Myna ( /s ). The book ends with them on the supposedly last leg of the trip to a big city where a noble that will undoubtedly hate him rules. I predict that the noble will have a smoking hot daughter that falls in love with Sean who also happens to have a super OP talent. If you have read the book and disagree with any part of my review don't bother responding because I don't value your opinion. That being said you shouldn't care about mine either. (hide spoiler)]

    Rating 4.0 stars I liked the first book better. There wasn't a whole lot that happened in this book. Sean didn't really learn any new skills or magic, he just practiced the stuff he knew a lot. He now has a life bond with Myna which is a little tough because he is in love with Fiona. The fact that Myna and Sean share the same soul with their life bond means that they will end up loving each other so that causes some friction between Sean, Myna and Fiona.

(view spoiler)[ In order to make everything fair, Fiona wants Sean to Life bond with her too, which he does. Sean puts off having sex with Myna forever, way after Fiona not only will let it happen but wants it to happen. Then he waits even longer to have sex with both of them together. (hide spoiler)] There was a lot of repetitiveness in this story. Sean kept getting upset at the way people would treat Fiona and Myna and they would calm him down and say that is the way the world works. Myna would hit on Sean and he would say he is not ready and doesn't want to cheat on Fiona. Sean kept talking about his one friend back home and how well he would be handling things in this world instead of him. (I have to wonder if that friend from earth is going to pop in in one of the later books as a villain or something, because he is brought up way to much for someone that hasn't physically been present in the story yet. Maybe his friend had something to do with him being killed by Thor in the First book? He was the one that picked the bar and didn't show up.) Despite all that I still really like the characters, while I did think is took Sean way to long to accept the practicality of his situation, the author didn't quite draw it out long enough to make it a problem. I am still more of a "The journey is more important than the destination" kind of guy and this story is exactly that.

    Daniel Schinhofen

    Totally biased. The second book of my OP MC/Harem series. It still follows the slice of life style I write in.

    First off, Daniel is a very good writer but there are aspects of his work which don't appeal to me and the rating I've assigned reflects that. I've said before that I find his books often bog down in an emotional morasse, and this did that too often. The previous book in this series was better balanced in that regard, but I in vol. 2 found myself flipping past many pages of the characters talking about their feelings in a self-reinforcing loop. This is a shame, because I like the premise of the First off, Daniel is a very good writer but there are aspects of his work which don't appeal to me and the rating I've assigned reflects that.

The previous book in this series was better balanced in that regard, but I in vol. 2 found myself flipping past many pages of the characters talking about their feelings in a self-reinforcing loop. This is a shame, because I like the premise of the story and the potential of this world. The MC is mildly annoying with his tsundere-ish issues with the female characters, but is otherwise not too much of a dipstick. Some ruthless editing is in order to balance the story more, and I estimate that close to 50 pages could be omitted without losing anything essential to the story. This may seem like a rant, but these are things that may not bother others and I don't want to put you off if you're one of them. I won't malign the author, as he is doing what is obviously important to him . At least it must be, as it crops up a LOT in his books. As always, YMMV.

Yes it has a nice ending and I liked the last quarter of the book, I did not enjoy reading it over all. Enslavement, rape, and sneering bigotry are not things I enjoy reading about one little bit. not fun at all. The flaws in this book were so annoying that that made me notice the flaws in book 1 I was having too much fun to notice. Huge gripe #1 is all the female characters have horror stories (that go on way too long and get way too personal) about the system that humiliated them. they all suffer from traumas great and small. and then they tell Sean that he must take up his place as a master within this system, and to basically "not rock the boat" and to "just get used to it". I found myself muttering swear words in disgust. Some very dubious mixed messages about domination and misogyny that further diminished what little enjoyment I could wring out of this book." Huge gripe #2 is that Daniel Schinhofen seems to have significantly changed the magic system of how this world works. I was intrigued by the world building and then he seems to just pull the rug out from under the previously established conventions. Things do pick up later in the book, and I have some hope for book 3 but Damn. what a let down from one book to the next. This book is still better than that god awful cover.

    The book feels mostly like a slice of life story with occasional short-lived bouts of extreme violence. There are hints at an overarching plot and important things to come but there's not much here. At the end of the book, it felt as if, nothing really happened.

It's not bad per se, it just feels like it lacks focus, progress, and plot. Much of the journey could've been distilled down into 50% or even 25% of what we got. Because it's effectively a chain of the same scene repeating several times. MC and bonded reach a village, sell some stuff, visit the Inn, drink a lot of tea, eat stuff and possibly get into a bar fight. Rinse and repeat. That's pretty much the entire book.

    Excellent Cant wait for book 3. This was well crafted and a good story sequel. Slightly slow but big on character development. It felt like it was a good pace with just enough twist and action mixed in. Well done sir.

    This book was hyper repetitive, the characters basically running through the same scenario over and over again as they travel. Where are they travelling? That's unclear even to the characters other than they're looking for a place to settle. What are the requirements for the place they're looking for? Unclear. What are the characters' motivations?

What are the characters' motivations? Unclear. What are the driving motivations for the whole plot? Also unclear. In my review for the last book, I said that it would be a lack of driving motivations that would bring this series down, and low and behold it has. The last book was carried on Sean's progression and the world-building, but this series doesn't even have that to make up for the lack of plot. I was also unhappy with Fiona's character in this book as she is not the same Fiona who was present in book 1. In that book, she was an independent woman with a set of skills that made her valuable to any community and her own desires. In this book, her only interest is in serving Sean. The same is true for Myna. Neither of them felt like real people anymore and that's a major problem. Finally, there is the harem story element. Normally this is a fun aspect to these books that adds just a little extra flavour to spice up the story. In this book, it was far from fun. The downright awkwardness of the three-way relationship and Sean's lack of chemistry with these women just made it a chore every time it popped up (which was a lot). I think you are supposed to be rooting for them all to get together as a reader, but I just got super fed up of hearing them talking about their feelings and figuring out how all this would work. Essentially, this book just didn't work for me and I'll most likely be leaving this series here.

Looking back a fair portion of the plot was a bit repetitive, nothing really bad, but noticeable nonetheless. Perhaps this was to set the tone or setup for the next novel, but on its own it detracted form the overall story. In the end this was a slightly above average book, with clean quick writing, but a plot that dropped half a star from the rating.

I think the intent of the author was to make us see through the eyes of Sean the way of living in this world. However it is drowned in boring elements with some jolt of actions from time to time. It was so boring that I felt ripped of. The first volume was already borderline but this one is right smack in the middle of it. I do not think I will buy the next installment as I am not confident that there would be a story worth of a book.

    Good Read. The story continues from the previous book. Book two does gain harem elements. The story has the cast is traveling to a destination of their choice. Enjoyed the story and will pick up the series. Note: The story does have adult situations in it.

It doesn't help that (view spoiler)[the cat girl said he grandfather had 5 wives. (hide spoiler)] This is looking like a harem by the minute. I mean the author isn't as obvious as some, who have ten plus girls by the first book, but he still is going there. Maybe not ten, but a harem of willing women nonetheless. 20 chapters in and the plot hasn't advanced one bit. He hasn't tried new abilities, he hasn't learned more about himself. 20 chapters are spent on him moving through the forest and setting up his harem. If this doesn't stop soon I'm done with this series (and the author) when this book is finished. This was the same crap the author pulled in alpha world. I wouldn't be surprised if the protagonist's one true love (James) shows up, and they put on a Shakespeare play. This author has a thing for "damaged" girls (some mind altering event in the past) joining his "harem". He also loves to white knight the women. At least I'm not feeling like the protagonist is wearing a giant fedora like the last book (Alpha World). Why is he protesting so much to them calling him master? This is an over the top reaction to such a simple thing, when he knows it is for him to fit in with the populous. I don't understand this. The author has a great story, yet he wastes literally half this book to furthering romance, and ignoring getting better. Training the powers you have don't mean anything when the romance out shadows the training. This entire book was a whole heap of nothing. Nothing of importance happened except he (the protagonist) got a new companion and that was after half the book was finished. Despite knowing I will be burnt, and the next book will be more of the same, I'm willing to give this series one last chance. If the next book doesn't get on with the story, and instead wastes more pages on harem set up. I'm dropping the author for good, and no persuasive words from colleagues will make me read anything else from him again. 2/5 Stars

I will for sure keep reading this series but this book if just a filler and will just be a link from book one to book three. This is a character development and not a plot development book. With all of that said I do like this series, the topic, the writing style, the characters, and the type of book.

But not all is lost in here, we do get a little more exposition about the world we get to know that it seems like Sean is not the only one from our world to end up there, neither that the only one that can send to that world are the Celtics deity’s. The major flaw in this book is the lack of excitement.

He has come a far in such a short time in adapting to the differences in this worlds society. There is still much more than he needs to get past, but his current mind state seems realistic.

    The writer has talent. I find what is written about the main character's relationships not to be to my liking. There are strong parallels between this books relationship idiosyncrasies and that of the protagonists of the Alpha World series.

    Slow but better I enjoyed this book. I think I enjoyed it more that the last by the end. I was tired of our hero being an overly emotional whip with his bonded. He finally got a grip. Hope we ate one with that sappy stuff for good.I much prefer the protector and anti bully hero for sure . The book is slowly progressing our hero's skills and talents and I hope for much more in the future. Bonding will of course be the key to more abilities and those will be needed to deal the nobles plus topple qu Slow but better I enjoyed this book. I think I enjoyed it more that the last by the end. I was tired of our hero being an overly emotional whip with his bonded. He finally got a grip.

    Smooth relaxing read but uneventful plot I like Sean and hate him- not from envy. He let his past qualms drive him too much. If the story had James as Mc, I would have liked it just as much. If not more, this story has a good nature scene or two but it teases or dangles juicy stuff too much so far. I keep needing more only to be left wanting and unsatisfied. It’s a good relaxing read with a really nice journey. But for all the author set up he could be a better hero instead of a humble blubberin Smooth relaxing read but uneventful plot I like Sean and hate him- not from envy.

    Early Stumbles A simple travel story, focused on the characters and relationships, with moments of action, intrigue, and world building. The protagonist spends half the book dithering over his love triangle, despite repeatedly telling himself not to do that. Combined with a few other moments of stupid, it really hurt my enjoyment of the first half. Slow paced, and sometimes whiny, the potential pulled me through to the end. Mostly filler, this book develops relationships and introduces another cha Early Stumbles A simple travel story, focused on the characters and relationships, with moments of action, intrigue, and world building.

    Slice of life bonds We find Sean and his companions journeying through various towns causing all sorts of shenanigans. This book was a full on slice of life and while it didn't have the adventure of the first book, you really got to know sean, myna, and fiona. I loved the character building and the subtle hints at what is to come in the future for the 3. 5/5 hair clips, would wear again.

    Hmmm....similar to Alpha Company The continued story of Myna and Fiona was appreciated, but his reluctance toward harems was quite similar to book Alpha company. Although there was action and fighting, there was no progress toward discovering who was behind the village massacre. It was basically a story of life travelling from village to village...hope the next book has a more detailed plot...

    I love the characters in this series. The world in this series comes to life vividly through the talent of the writer. The characters are something special, the personalities of each are unique and beautiful. I was up till 4:30 A.M reading this book because i was enjoying my stay in the world along side Sean, Fiona, Myna and now Ryaan. This is one of my favorite stories so far, (and i have over 5 months listening time to audio books) i need more of this story.

    Nice read Another good book and a good continuation of the story. While it felt more like a linking book more than a continue of the adventure it was still an enjoyable read. As the title suggests its about depening the bonds growing between the characters than their next big adventure. I look forward to seeing what happens when they get to a big city and the inevitable trouble they find.

    I liked this... Read books 1 and 2 back to back. I liked this story, it's a bit different. I like the MC to be a bit over powered but not ridiculously so and the world is not totally bleak. I find having every encounter being a skin of the teeth survival with improbable amounts of luck to be tedious. The characters are likeable and the interactions believable and engaging within the stories boundaries of reality. Looking forward to more in this series. I liked this...
