Summary

She promised him for better and for worse.

Torga’s been keeping a secret from his wife. While Reina, an accomplished monster hunter, was overjoyed to be reunited with the man she loves, what would happen if she found out that he was actually one of the largest monsters in history?

Torga’s plans to reveal himself are interrupted when a conspiracy of other gods sends him and his wife to Helheim, a frozen waste where their skills and magic are stripped away. He’ll have to recover his powers, and possibly make a deal with some of Helheim’s less savory residents to escape, but will Reina accept his help once she realizes who he really is? He’s going to have to convince her, because her mortal body is dying, and if it does, she’ll be trapped in Helheim forever.

This series only gets better

In my opinion this is by far the best in the series and the first two are outstanding books rife with monster asswoopens. Do yourself a favor and listen to what happens when you get on this guys bad side.

Brilliant

A fantastic sequel to the series.
when you start thinking the MC might just be the strongest, BAM he gets knocked out straight which goes to show that there's more to the world. That ending once again has me left wanting more. Also great narration by the narrator, you can really feel the emotions from the MC.

lost it

Enjoyed the first two books story and performance where excellent! but this one just lost me. went from a bad ass snake dragon god to a love sick puppy. he lost his wife at 36 he lived to 80+ then died was reborn and lived another 100+ years... and he expects his relationship to still be the same or to chase the same person. I'm unimpressed with the story progression in this book!

Wow. What piece of garbage.

Just got to love taking your all powerful character you've spent 2 books making a badass, into a little b°tch that gets tossed around like a rag doll for most of the book. I didn't come here for it's compelling story. I came to watch a Garden Snake turned God kick @ss and dick his wife into a coma.

He doesn't even eat people anymore

Remember when this series was about a giant snake eating people?

Because at this point it's almost all divine politics and filler. At one point, our protagonist, THE WORLD DEVOURING SERPENT, has to put on a tuxedo and go to a fancy party where he proceeds to shuffle awkwardly in the corner like a nerd at prom, before quietly leaving.

I'm not saying the book has to be non-stop action, some of the best moments in the previous 2 books were in the downtime, but there's just nothing here.

Travis Baldree's narration is excellent as always, but can't do much for this slog of a story.

Great but felt like it was over quickly

This book felt like it pulled the emergency break right when it was about to take off. the whole hellheim part caused physical pain to me for Torga. The gods seem to prove themselves self important ninny's with over inflated ego's so big if they exploded they would wipe out a whole galaxy. I get why they have to try to nerf Torga's power he's either able to flatten a mountain with a backhand or requires multiple punches to even inflict a scratch on someone only for it to be healed instantly. Can't wait for book 4 because I honestly can't predict what will happen because of what we got at the ending

Definitely worth the time but not as good.

Torga's story continues and it's definitely interesting but ultimately not as engaging as previous books in the series. Took me nearly 3 times as long to finish it....ultimately because I wasn't as invested. Torga's character has become so OP that there is no real tension. Most of the book he spends killing people and even fights with other gods to get to his wife with no real effort.

Excellent series from my new fave author

Torga the minor god of hunger and gravity is at it again. While I admit this one isn’t my favorite entry so far, it really did a good job of setting up the next arc. I love these books, good isekai from western authors is incredibly hard to come by. If you love things like slimes life, or so I’m a spider so what?, you’ll love the misadventures of my favorite snake deity.

Enjoyable continuation

Really enjoyed the continuation in the series. Full of adventure and excitement. Not much in the way of originality but nothing to complain about. Solid 4.5 stars.

meh

for a super powerful planet devouring snake god he sure gets his teeth kicked in alot especially in this book. Travis baldree is perfect as always. with this series you can really see the writers character flaws. I think he really believes Torga is a good guy when he really isn't and it's obvious to everyone else's except him. so all in all it's a solid meh.

feels like it's going downhill

I loved this story at first, book one I mean, and about half of book two. I loved the idea of the main character being a snake. felt unique, and I absolutely adore monstrous, non human pov like that.

that said, this book has the main character in a human form for the majority of it, which goes against the initial draw completely. besides that, the story has felt like more and more random, with characters double crossing constantly, and several "oh no, but wait" moments.
