A Marine turned Greek God. An army of beautiful Amazons. An infernal enemy out to burn the world down.
It’s been three weeks since Jacob Merely crash-landed on the mythical island of Lycastia, and the newly minted War God finally has things under control. He’s grown into his power, built his city, and earned the respect of his gorgeous, hard-charging Amazons.
He’s not in the clear yet, though. Hades still lives, and the mystical sigil holding him at bay is rapidly failing. Worse, a horde of new enemies is battering Lycastia’s gates daily, slowly grinding down Jacob’s forces. But Jacob has a plan to get the upper hand. He’s learned about a legendary weapon buried in a prehistoric world deep in the bowels of the island. A weapon with the power to kill even gods. If he can defeat the weapon’s primordial guardians and subdue an exiled Titan, he might just be able to save the world.
But that’s an awfully big if …

This is a sequel that takes the action up a notch. There’s fights, leveling upgrades, and more fights. If that’s what you’re looking for this story has it in spades. There’s a bit of crafting and town building in the beginning but that’s a more minor aspect in book 2.
Game mechanic wise, nothing fundamentally new. The MC gets some new powers that he uses to lay down the hurt on all the new kinds of monsters that he and his amazons fight. The only real complaint I have about the game mechanics is that I feel like I’m only reading half of it this time. There’s another player involved in this RTS themed story, Earl Echo Earl, the bad guy. Yet I get no real information about the tech/upgrade trees he’s using to create his side of the battle. So everything I read about from his side feels...off somehow. A little wand wavy. A small thing that doesn’t hurt the story.
Storywise, everything is pretty simple and straightforward. Fight, level up, upgrade, and fight some more. Small note, the harem stuff that was included in the story this time felt out of character for the MC and the story.
Overall, a good story that emphasizes action.
