Summary

A village full of gorgeous elves desperate to be loved? There had to be a catch.

Sebastian Frost’s most recent memory was waking up in a field naked, in a body that wasn’t his own, in a world that definitely wasn’t his own, and three stunning pointy-eared women staring right at him. He also remembered hair as white as starlight, eyes like amethysts, and the name Shalia.

Fortunately, it was the right name to know.

Shalia was the elves’ goddess, and that made him her herald. If that wasn’t enough of a blessing, he was in a game world, he was high level, he had hundreds of ability points to spend, and the elves were practically throwing themselves at him.

Of course, there was a catch. 

Shalia, her followers, and now, Frost himself were viewed by the world as bringers of misfortune and everybody hated them. Although, to be fair, Frost was going to rain misfortune on anybody who attempted to harm his lovable new followers.

Herald of Shalia is a fun fantasy litRPG by Tamryn Tamer and contains attention-starved elves, beast-girl courtesans, foul language, twosomes, threesomes, and foursomes, and completely over-the-top love-making. You've been warned.

Review contains spoilers.

Kieran Flitton has an okey voice when he talks normally, but a majority of the time he just sounds out of place and weird. The book used many of our modern cuss words and bad language that it just feels out of place. Overall it was good, liked the unusual way of looking at elves. Personaly I would love to be a herald for them. But anyway I liked the start with him building his relations, learning the powersystem and how to level. The planning and protectivness for his elves. Well I really liked it in the beginning and the middle. Well up until he became weird and goofy. He loves his elves and his future wife, but he still bought whores, fucked them infront of his fiance and Invited them to his elven village... It just made me drop any respect for him. I didnt mind the Invite for the arachne, since it was for her tailoring skills and to give her a chance for a better life.

I dont mind sex from time to time, it can be romantic and character bonding. But it felt like the writer got horny writing and changed his/her mindset to sexsaga

Good book, but a bit over the top

Really interesting story and magic system. Narration is great. Characters are really developed well, until 2nd half which is about sex. Too bad, it got boring and the story just stopped.

First half is really good. Second half is just filled with orgies and all women are lesbos. I don't mind the sex, but it bring nothing to the story and there is no emotions in it, except for lust (for anything by anyone).

Will probably check out book 2, but it feels like it will more of the 2nd half.

Winter is coming, you can feel the Frost

Epic elven beauty - A hunger that food can't quell - Our Hero know all the ugliness of the enemy, as he has the same ugliness hidden inside himself - Steaming hot sex - Occasionally Epic elvern cuteness.
Herald of Shalia is a 3 book series, the 3 books will be your guilty pleasure you pull out to read, when real life overwhelm you and you just need to enter a world where you actually can experience steaming hot sex with the most beautiful elven girls.

Tamryn Tamer time to write Herald of Shalia 4 - 5 - 6 ..... Please


Herald of Shalia 1 2 3 are a good read,I hope we will get more books to read from this author.

Surprising

Surprisingly good, I checked this one out after reading the summary of book 3 by mistake and while a bit slow to start I very much enjoyed it and am planning to start on book 2 tonight.

While a touch too sexual at times it has some very good comedy that made me laugh in the character exchanges and when it starts into the world building and plot it really caught my eye and I managed to finish this in 2 days and the only reason it wasn’t 1 was due to the shortness of the first day.

Awesome and fun listen

Ok let’s be real. Is the premise super original? Not really. However it is surprisingly well done, with a main character that is refreshingly different enough that I really enjoyed the story. The world was believable enough, and overall I enjoyed this a lot. Waiting for the next one.

Performance wise I think the male narrator could have done a bit more to sound more like he was talking with people, but this was only really noticeable in the first few chapters, before I got used to it. Also the fact is that the female narrator is the one you hear 75% of the time, which makes it less of an issue overall

I own a 1000 audio books this is top 5

Just so ready for next 3 in series just 1 of the best characters and narration of all books I've ever listen too if you don't mind graphic very descriptive sex. If this book had no graphic sex it still would be a top 10 book just from a wonderfully done story and narration. But the graphic part is pretty awesome too and on an adult level not a teen trying to describe it

No. No. No.

I made it up to chapter 9 but just could not listen anymore. The story was not even beginning to develop because everything was about the attraction of the main male character to all the female characters, sex all the time, and his constant declarations to them about how beautiful they all are. If not for the graphic sex, this book would be for tweens. The narration was shaping up pretty well though; sadly it could not keep me interested.

Wow... just wow!

Been a fan of the Herald of Shalia books for a while now. And I must say both Amber and Kieran did an incredible job of narrating it to life. Absolutely fantastic!

The book's main character, Sebastian Frost, starts out being dropped on a world by a goddess to be her selected Herald. This world has the litrpg mechanics where you have to level up to thrive. Frost essentially has to come to terms with his new reality while choosing between his own self interest or the presumptive constituency that are Shalia's followers, whom desperately needs a leader and guidance. The task is daunting as no other Herald or country wants an upstart following near or within their borders.

The system is well done. But I think the strongest aspect of this book is the incredible detail and realism the author manages to bring with the characters. Not only the characters, but the world's societal interactions are completely nuanced with regards of realism. Things aren't just good or evil, nor are they "shades of grey". Every character and or organisation (country) has driven motivations that brings this story to life.

I absolutely love the banter moments between Slade and Frost and can't wait for more. Please do book 2 SOON! PLEASE! Again, fantastic job to both narrators with their phenomenal performance in bringing this series to life.

Advisory warning, this book has intense sexual descriptions, violence, both harems and monogamous relationships, foul language, incredible humor of realism, and extreme character titles that mmo's would be sued over. Listen to this highly fun and entertaining story at your own risk.

Slade.. God damnit I couldn't stop laughing

well long story short, yes. it's an erotic power fantasy harem litrpg. don't go in expecting anything wildly different.

this is a good, turn off the brain a little, sit back and feel good type of stories. both sexually and not. it will clearly put off anyone looking for anything deep but stories like these do have a place. the sex scenes are very well done.

my real surprise was the narration. amber seems to get better and better with each book I've heard from her and Kieran was an unknown to me. I liked the dry sarcastic flair he gave Frost and he did well with the other male roles. the best part is that both narrator's went the extra length to get inflection, tone and scene right. both the direction and effort is very well appreciated.

now for the first half of this story it's a little serious and kinda plods a bit especially with the main characters.. well let's call it a "I'm not a good person" complex. it does grate a little but I can get over it. after the action though it's a comedy train for sure. helped by ambers portrayal of many characters but Kieran acting out slade.. omg I just couldn't stop laughing I love this asshole. second half is a good wind down and fun little ride. definitly looking forward to listening to the next book instead of reading

very fun and sexy story

I felt the story was very well written it was entertaining and kept me riveted. the voice actors and actresses were spot on and added depth and dimension. I have to say, Amber Lee Connors, the female voice actress did a very good job on the sexy parts and emulating the different voices of the different women. And the male voice, Kieran Flitton, did a great job emulating the main character. I for one would love to be able to listen to book number two thank you for doing a job well done, author and voice actors.

Tamryn Tamer gets what harem fantasy is all about.

If you are a fan of harem fantasy then you probably know how rare it is for there to be one with a good worthwhile story. This is definitely a story worthy of your time, if you haven't picked it up already and are a fan of the genre consider yourself obligated to get it.... now... seriously, it is easily in the top 10 of the genre and a great fantasy story most of the harem elements aside (though I won't lie it is a major part of the story and can't be easily separated.)

Amazing story

Wonderful story interesting use of game mechanics. I love the interplay of politics, power leveling and crafting . Can’t wait for the next installment of this book. Looking forward to the city planning. I think what I love most is how the MC is not obvious too OP or dumb. But uses basic knowledge and skills to his advantage. While at the same time has flaws and gaps in the worlds knowledge and politics.

The audio was perfect for this book. The vocals used are one of my favorites. Wish for more in the series!

Just another fantasy porn story

This is just a porn story. More than 60% of it is just descriptions of sex. The storyline and the plot has great potential but it’s drowned out by the constant scenes of sex and the main character is acts like a horny teenage boy who has no control over his own sex drive and doesn’t care what other people think. He will sleep with anything and everything and he doesn’t care. The one ironic thing about this story is if you take away all of the sex scenes you have a very nice short story. This is the only reason I gave it two stars instead of one.

Love the story but....

Love the story but the narration was off. Maybe is was the editing or pacing, I don't know. The narration was read like a romance novel and with the male voice added in just broke up the flow. It's one the few books I'll just read again instead.
