Summary

A world on the precipice of the apocalypse. A secret forged in the flames of war. A chance to start over.

For John Sutton, only one of those three things matters.

Retired from a decade of brutal war, he wants nothing more than a quiet pastoral life while he does his best to stem the steady increase of his Doom Points before they hit 100, signaling the start of the end.

He’s been given a small farm on the outskirts of the empire as thanks for his service, but no matter how far he travels, it's impossible to escape the war's devastating effects on the world.

Bandits, suspicious townsfolk, a mysterious pair of siblings, and a secret that lurks in the mountains all threaten John’s peace. It will take all of his considerable power to keep from burning everything to the ground.

Don't miss the start of the next great Fantasy LitRPG Series by Seth Ring, author of Nova Terra. Pre-order your copy today and explore a world whose secrets have been buried under decades of war.

About the Series: Mixing slice-of-life with epic fantasy action, mystery, magic, cultivation, and a broken game system that seems determined to make everything as hard as possible for the already overpowered protagonist, this LitRPG/GameLit series is perfect for those who enjoy exploring rich worlds and complex characters.

Enjoyable

A fairly fun listen, John is a bit clueless in how he expects to be able to live a quiet life. The character interaction is quite good and the pacing of the story is steady

It's a story that grows on you

Ok so at this point Seth Ring, is becoming a hero and a villain in pretty much equal measure.
I first came across Seth's work via Nova terra. Having finished those ten audio books I discovered that he has also written this.

Battle Mage farmer is a bit of a slow burner, but its a steady introduction to John's world.
Seth again does a brilliant job building the world up around the characters and the point to pick up John's life at retirement is inspired.

book 4 has just been released and so I have 3 more to go through so i am a very happy person at this point.

my bank balance however cannot say the same

If you read beware of chicken... This is for you

At the end of a hard and long fought life, our protagonist John is spending his pension working a small plot of land. The book is very well crafted and full of original and imaginative ideas within the #litRPG genre. I can't wait for the next one 📚 5/5⭐ #BookReview #booktwt and

Great story

Picked this book up on a whim and glad I did. Well paced story and well read. So a few days later purchased book 2 in the series.

I would recommend this book. Nothing like I expected, its better.
