Action Packed Seuel Read this immediately after book 1 as it starts the action shortly after those vents and pretty much doesn t take its foot off the gas for the rest of the book Trust me you ll need the fresh memory Once again we re treated to well Seductive Surrender edited continuous rolling narrative action along with solid humor drama mayhem magic and a mind blowingxpansion of the plot And yes pancakesThe characters remain true and multi dimensional growing as we watch sometimes with cloudy undetermined results Relationships grow and change too in meaningful ways The Seductive Surrender (Highland Heather Romancing a Scot, environment changes a lot in very unexpected ways Thediting remains awesome and the cover artist is brilliantAs always it s a real joy to read Arand s work and I remain a huge fan Highly recommended Rating 15 stars This book sucked I didn t have high hopes after the first book and I didn t actually plan on reading this book until I found out there is a crossover with this book and Wild Wastes which is a series I do like so I bit the bullet and read this book There were multiple times I wanted to stop reading The fact that I finished the book is the only reason I gave it 15 stars instead of 1 star I usually only give books I could not finish 1 star There were so many things that did not make sense in the story I am huge WHY person In very story I like to know the underlying reason ach character takes a particular action and I get pissed off if the reason isn t logical now this is case specific if a character is a homicidal maniac and he does some crazy shit I can understand that based on the context of the character being crazy Felix was all over the place with his planning and none of it made sense He xpanded legion into another town and opened up a college still don t know why Later in the story he decided he wanted to open up a non profit prison then later in the story he decided he was going to run for Governor What is the overall purpose of any of that To make money No because he is actually loosing money To gain power He says throughout the ntire book that he doesn t want power So why Then the story takes an ven weirder turn view spoiler We get our "First Glimpse Of Wild Wastes "glimpse of Wild Wastes when a portal opens up to Felix for a few seconds Anyone who read the 2nd Wild wastes book should remember the scene When Felix sees that he starts handing out portal making powers to veryone around him because yeah it of course is that The Deepest Sin easy and they go off to another world that he is now calling legion world Once their he meets Gods So superheroes and magic aren tnough Now they have to add Gods into the mix Then ven stupid shit happens Felix gets Felicia to build a machine that transfers his peoples good thoughts about him so that he can transfer those thoughts into worship for a couple of gods Because of course that seems pretty straightforward to me sarcasm I bet if he asked Felicia to come up with a machine that could turn his farts into flying unicorns she would say no problem Then ven after all the buildup of forces people and machines to turn Legion into a powerhouse company that nobody can mess with Felix still nds up alone and being attacked at the nd of the story hide spoiler The Super Sales on Superhero series is a crazy but still njoyable blend of superherovillain stories harem fantasy and LitRPG It works mostly because Arand s writing is fairly ngaging and the story is fun The story in this second book really just picks up from where the last book left off Felix along with his harem of superpowered girlfriends just continued to spread and xpand his Legion cult With that in mind they popped up in a new city to start their xpansion plans I really njoyed the first book in this series despite its flaws This second instalment of the series was OK but definitely not uite as fun as the first book I think I did myself no favours by reading the Selfless Hero trilogy series between instalments of Super Sales on Super Heroes as that series got worse by the book and taught me a lot about what William D Arand wants and intends for his stories and characters hint Not the same as what I wanted The result of being forewarned with that knowledge was that I was xpecting and duly seen the negative developments in the progression of the story and the characters Arand likes what he likes and the the story progresses the some of his views and preferences tend to annoy me I can take a good male power fantasy as well as the ne. In a world full of super powers Felix had a pretty crappy one After learning to harness his ability to modify any item he owns he now runs a corporation that is rapidly xpanding Legion After tangling with the local Heroes guild they’ve finally settled into a semblance of stability Sounds grea. ,
Xt guy I ve been reading fantasy for the last 20 years after all but ven I have limits and when the story goes beyond those points it begins to lose its appeal The flaws begin to outweigh the fun stuff so to say This story is not uite at that point but it is definitely on its way there and that is following the Le valeureux guerrier exact same blueprint as was set down in the Selfless Hero trilogy which only helps reinforce my original view that both series aressentially the Snowflakes on the Sea exact same story with just the location changed superhero world vs LitRPG fantasy world and the character names changed and pretty muchverything Wrathful Chaos: Five Books of Satanic Philosophy else just retold to fit For what it is worth the Super Sales on Superheroes series is a better version of the Selfless Hero trilogy I actually do not mind the characters to much in this story Felix is what he is but he is tolerablexcept at his worse moments Though it is worth noting that he is growing less tolerable the he grows in power His girlfriends are a fun bunch with uniue personalities and uirks of their own ven if all of them are ultra sexually submissive in nature So far Arand has managed to avoid falling into the "trap he did in the Selfless Hero trilogy of adding so many characters to Felix "he did in the Selfless Hero trilogy of adding so many characters to Felix harem that the original characters get shoved out of the way and forgotten about Here we stuck mostly with the team Felix assembled in the last tale and I thought that benefited the story as we already had a chance to grow attached to those characters One would think that the undercurrent of misogyny the power fantasy lements the somewhat cringey romance lements or ven Arand s strange take on morality would be the biggest problem for the story but weirdly that was not the case The biggest thing that hurt this tale compared to the first instalment was the fact that a twist halfway through morphed the tale from a fun typical superpowered world setting to that of a basic DD fantasy world feel I feel like this development has the potential to really hurt the story in the next instalment because it sucked Random thought I think what always leaves me most puzzled by Arand s books is the pregnancy fetish I have a basic idea of why Humanism: The Greek Ideal and its Survival everythinglse could be appealing Love 2.0 (A Cates Brothers Book, even the horrifically bad stuff but this one justscapes my grasp It is not like this The Fix even hurts Arand s stories It is just there andweird I m going to write this off as one of those things that is a result of my general lack of being able to grasp why people in general are so obsessed with the idea of legacy All in all this was an OK read I ll read the third book but I m fearing it willnd up being a not particularly satisfying nd to this story Which will happen for sure if we get a retelling of Selfless Hero 3 Rating 3 stars I still feel like Arand has some fun ideas and his writing is fairly ngaging but the flaws really hurt the story Audio Note We got the dreaded switch of narrator Jeff Hays to Nick Podehl On the surface it should not been too much of an issue as both guys are two of the best narrators in the fantasyLitRPG genres but it still nds up being a negative because no matter how awesome Podehl is and his is awesome and no matter that he clearly does try to be consistent with Hays take on the characters when still have to deal with the fact that we got a new narrator and that hurt the consistency of the audio adaptation Moaning aside I think this was a fairly smooth change It helps that both chosen narrators are top notch but I still wish Arand had just managed to maintain Hays for the whole series I wonder what prompted the change Surely it could not have been a timing or price issue as I m certain that Nick Podehl is very bit as Desire in Seven Voices expensive and busy as Jeff Hays Good and intenseI rated this one a little lower mainly over the last part of the book Too much chaos and too many balls in the air feels like an open wound That said I wouldn t be troubled if this series wasn t Awesome Keep up the great writing I love the cast of characters I m sure the next one will rock I didn t like Empire Strikes Back as muchither Just saying This book has a great concept and ven some decent writing The problem is the author has no storytelling skills This series started with a simple plot build wealth in a city run by a super villain Success brought mystery attackers so building wealth now included finding out who was attacking the main character In this book the main character discovers his attacker not through any ffo.
