Summary

Something went wrong. Something went very wrong….

Against his will, Thaden was transported elsewhere in a big flash of light along with millions of other Humans from Earth, to a place where they would train to become Contenders in a whole new world. Unfortunately for him, something occurred during his transference into the “Training” program, and he was ejected from the whole training process and sent into the open mouth of an active volcano for bodily disposal.

Through a miraculous and horrifying series of events, Thaden managed to survive, only to find himself alone in the middle of a dungeon with no clothes, no weapons, and no way to defend himself. Worst of all, the strange new Assimilation System automatically assigned a Class to him without his knowledge, which ended up sticking him with a Support-based Class that has absolutely no offensive capabilities. As an Assistant Healer, none of his spells did any damage and he couldn’t even pick up a weapon to defend himself if he wanted to!

But all hope isn’t lost, as Thaden quickly learns something unique about himself that might just allow him to survive long enough to escape the dungeon. Sure, all his new magical spells might be focused on healing and protection, but what does it mean when he seemingly won’t ever run out of Mana…?

This story contains an overpowered MC with a normally non-combat Class, LitRPG progression mechanics and stats, and isekai/portal fantasy elements. Contains no sexual content or harems.

Looking forward to book 2

Jonathan Brooks is more well known for his dungeon core books but he has pull this one off very well

Miles Meili did a good job narrating this but i only gave his performance 4 stars as i personally didn't think his voice fit the MC.

Great start

As a gamer I have always liked healers but somehow they are never the main characters. Like the defenders in football never seem to be the stars. Because even though you have to survive to grow in a LITRPG world, you also have to kill to grow. So we sometimes have mixed classes. But here we have a pure healer that is surviving after finding himself in a new world. He has no information and has a very bad start. But circumstances give him strong OP elements, but even though he is OP as a healer, it gives us a fresh view on an OP character. Since he is a pure healer it is difficult to survive even while being an OP healer.
This book kept me engaged so I listened to it in a day and it also sets the scene for the future.
I like how different this authors books are but still have that certain element that keeps me engaged. I love the narrator, and feel that he adds a lot to the story. But I should note that I have ADHD and listen to audiobooks at different speed depending on my brains activity. Usually speed 1.3, but when getting calm for sleep I go to 0.95. And this author works at every speed.

MC is an idiot

I like the idea and story in general, which is the only reason I finished it. The MC though, is written in a way that's too annoying, mainly because he doesn't learn or even try to learn anything until it's shoved in his face.

It seems like that's done on purpose, but I don't know why and it just ruins the book for me unfortunately.

Enjoyable

As with all of Jonathan's book, he manages to find a nice balance between crunchy, immersion and story telling. Plenty of hard stats but they are focused to times when the MC actually has time to review all his notifications, and "blue boxes" never break the flow of the story. Regarding the story, it is well thought out, with interesting side quests and an exciting well paced main plot that has great potential to grow in future books. Overall a very enjoyable listen!

Fantastic book !!!

Unexpected Healer is a great litrpg read. It managed to incorporate all the things we love about the genre and still brought new ideas to the table. If you know Jonathan Brookes from his Dungeon Core books, you won’t be disappointed with his latest offering and if you are yet to read any of Mr Brookes previous books, do yourself a huge favour and check them out soon. I have it on good authority, the next instalment of Unexpected Healer will be out this year, can’t wait!! 5 star

A must for your library.

What a great read, I was hooked by the first chapter. I thought the Fusionist was a great series but then Johnathan had to release this as I was midway through Station Core. I can't wait for book two to be released and at the rate his books are released, it won't be a long wait.

Unconventional

A fresh take on the genre, Interesting world building and an engaging storyline, I've always enjoyed the "glitched" type of story, so I found this book very entertaining. Already looking forward to the next one!
