Summary

The path to the top is never easy...

The title of Serpent King is up for grabs, and Torga's going to need the power it brings to protect his new family. Standing in his way are eight Royal Serpents and a host of shadowy forces who want to manipulate Torga for their own personal gain.

As if that wasn't enough, the jotnar are returning to Asgard, threatening the people Torga swore to protect. He has to become stronger, but will his allies pay the price for his rise to power?

A very satisfying ending to an entertaining story

I was very eager to dive back into this story after the first book, and wasn't dissapointed. If you liked the first one, then I recommend this book as a satisfying conclusion to the tale.

Fun listen

A good continuation to the series. I listened to the audio book version of the story and I thoroughly enjoyed it ( I would give it a well deserved 4.5). Travis Baldree is one of my favourite narrators and he consistently adds quality and depth to the characters. This is a fun book made for those that wish to pass the time and it shouldn’t be taken too seriously. It is comedy and I would recommend an open mindset if you wish to thoroughly enjoy the story. Can’t wait for the next instalment.

I appreciate that reuniting wasn't drawn out over the whole series, with a bunch of near "almost" meetings. I hate that so much and would have put a big damper on the series as a whole for me. So to the author i thank you, and to the reader of the next book cost me 50 with no option to use a credit I'd do it.

Let’s be honest..

This book was a complete hot mess.
(Beware Spoilers below)
1. The story line was completely disjointed. book 1 ended with him a a shell for 10years. In book to they wavered repeatedly between 10years & 18months which is a huge difference imo.
2. Halfway through the author decided to make this a bit more rpg and gave Torga stats, then promptly lost interest in them. Torga evolved multiple times but only had stats to allocate once. By the end of the book his strength & endurance surpassed the previous 500,000+ & were just listed as ‘infinite’ at level 100 meanwhile his wisdom was at like 50???
3. Even though he had previously turned down evolutions for naga, he was randomly allowed to evolve for plot purposes only simply because the author wanted to give him arms. Then halfway through a battle he evolves into a hydra but only has to be in the shell for 10 seconds?
4. While I love Travis Baldree, his narration was not the best here. Many of the voices were barely distinct and a lot of the male xters sounded very similar to Torga which was really confusing. I’ve definitely heard him perform better (see the Cradle series)
5. The power level and size of Torga & some other monsters are so mind boggling that they’ve lost all meaning. Exactly how are we supposed to envision a snake that is thousands of miles long, has his own star and is hundreds of feet tall but can still have conversations and interact easily with much smaller humanoids? Meaningless...

These are just a few of the issues I found with this book. Ive already purchased book 3, so I’m stuck, but if issues like this persist, I’m not certain I’ll continue with the series.

Loved it but ...

It was an awesome story and a great conclusion but most of those interludes were pointless as was the random shifts in POV. It should have remained on Torga 100% of the time since I skipped over it and had no problem understanding the story. But only a minor inconvenience which is why I still rated it a fine. Travis Bladree was great as usual.

It’s too short

I really enjoyed the book I just really wish There was more he makes progress but as soon as he reaches a goal that we’ve been wanting him to read for a while the book ends and it’s annoying as heck because I want to see more interactions between those two characters

Main story is worse than side ones.

The main character and his story are a bit boring, there's no stakes or anything like that with him, even the litrpg elements don't matter in the slightest, he'll just eat through all his problems. The side characters are much more interesting, like in book one, what sounds more interesting and unique, snake eats problems and threatens all, at sea, or druid and her lupine lover meet unstable serpent at sea and strike a tenuous bargain of protection for their family? In two shortish books the main character has gone from garden snake to his own solar system, and all the non-snake form stuff and adventures over 10 years was skipped, only used for dues ex-ing up why he knows fact a or thing b.

An excellent continuation of an exciting story

This story is simply an exciting read. Though this book takes the character up to an op level of infinity by the end of the book, it was still always filled with plenty of suspense.

The only reason I would rate this 4 stars rather than the 5 it deserves is the disjointed parts of the book that really left me scratching my head, wondering what happened in the intermission that was definitely skipped over. Now these bits might definitely come back during later parts of the series and be explained, and some may be explained in other side stories that seem to be coming alongside this story, (such as Reina's Story that is linked at the end of the book) but I personally found these little bits of cliff hanger or even just skipped segments for expediency, quite jarring. I love finding little connecting easter eggs and secrets linking one book to another, or parts of the story together, but in this book there are just some times when I found myself actually lost as far as what just happened, because entire segments were skipped and it seemed like I really missed something important, that simply wasn't there.

Other than that, the story was fantastic! Torga had some major breakthroughs in power levels, his control of his condition, and simply his own ability to function as an independent thinking creature (which he thoroughly struggles with throughout this book).

the book was fine

My biggest gripe is the author changed his formula for this book and for the only reason I can see is word count added the stats being read out multiple times throughout the book and now all of a sudden we have numbered stats it added nothing to the book there was no reason for it just some arbitrary numbers other than that the book was fine .
