Interesting Concept

I have to say the concept of a steampunk fantasy world was delivered well. The pacing could use work, at one moment it’s slow and then suddenly intense. This is a solid start and can’t wait to listen to the next book. Keep up the good work.
Fantastic narration from Marissa and Alex as always.

Didn't last 2 hours

The entire beginning of the book is meaningless. Protag dies and gets reincarnated, but he's losing all his memories of his past life and got a complete personality change. It's an incredibly ham fisted way of getting a clueless protagonist you can pass expository dialogue through. It's annoying, but not the real reason I dropped this.

There's just something about a protag being tortured in one scene only in the next to completely get over it and think about shacking up with one of the facilitators of his torture.

She's hot though, so that's okay?

Not really. Seems like everyone's hot according to the author.

Hard pass from me.

Meh, rushed with no danger.

it started out fine even though the MCs self description didn't bode well. but he didn't act like he did in his previous life so fine.

Everything felt rushed though. Some sections just get glossed over even though those situations could have been used for character development. The ending is super rushed and incredibly anti-climactic. The last battle felt like there was no danger.
The MC also gets carried through most battles and even when the enemy is really dangerous, he pretty easily kills them despite being incredibly weak and not really growing in power all that much. The stats seem useless in the story.

Premise is interesting and the story could have been so much more but fell a bit flat and ended as a meh.

Steampunk at its Finest

This book was fantastic. A magical realm where steam drops from adventuring. Bradley is someone who seems realistic with his flaws that he improves upon. I enjoyed the epic tale with its grand times.

wrong title

let me begin saying the I read or hear in this case, all 3 books and this review is for all 3 books, first of all, he was not born as a baron lord, he became by choice, second; the entire beginning of the book is meaningless the dude forget everything what is the point, of the beginning, third; the girl on the cover with red hair, I don't know why she even there, because for autor "han yang" she not important, like people from UK said this is rubbish!!!!!

I wish there was more!

Very short with a lot of satisfying progression from a newbie adventure to a baron dictator (a nice dictator) that's not to complicated to understand, its like a game! Tt ends on a cliff hanger though so that was disappointing but I think there might be more. Idk. I should probably look it up.

Not by any stretch of the imagination

Not by any stretch of the imagination. It's a waste of time and money just pass on by.

Good YA read

There is good character and story building throughout the first installment. The MC is a paladin in all things. He is not OP but ranks up enough not to be too much of a burden to the rest of his group. I really enjoyed the steam punk elements.

I think the start of the story a little slow but it builds up going further into the story I would like to have the next book on audio out already either audible or bookfunnel I would buy it once it comes out

Great book but...

This book was great! the world building was a bit intense with a lot of information all at once but I am hoping that it is setting things up for a sequel. My only qualm with this book is I wish it were longer! I can't wait for the next book if there is going to be one!

A mom, a bilingual 14 year old girl, and grammarly

The world and storyline are epic!
However, this book reads like it was translated.
1/4 the descriptions deserved
1/2 the character
1/4 the comprehension
1/3 the Due process
zero foreshadowing
1/9 just wrong.

there is alot of mystery and drama that that the (original/talented) writer of the book directly hinted at the MC not noticing. But then the majority of the book filled with just statements and conclusive outcomes without build or process, like the finisher of the book was a 14 year old who did it as a homework assignment.
