An existence spent being forced to kill others to satiate a Monster. Where the only thing to look forward to was the blessed, if brief, period of time between paying that bribe.

Where the only thing to look forward to was the blessed, if brief, period of time between paying that bribe. Except that very same Monster is and isn’t Rene. It just happened to live inside his own mind and force him to do what it wanted. Rather than being an actual Monster. That was Rene’s entire life until a fateful day changed that. A day that the career as a hitman for hire built on the Monster’s needs will end. Where Rene will be forced to atone for his actions. To be held accountable and judged. Except the verdict is already long since passed and needs no deliberation. His sentence was being sent hundreds of years into the past, into a different world even, where he must live a life for the betterment of others. Every action judged as it happens and weighed out against him. But even this new idyllic life he’s been living in for eighteen years is about to go off the rails and Rene will be forced back into a life lived in the underworld. Armed with a few gifts granted to him by the one who judged him, gifts better suited to a fantasy about living in a video game, Rene has to maneuver his way back to his new life while using all the things he’d learned in his old one. Except using those skills is a double-edged sword. If he’s not careful, he’ll end up right back where he started. Dead and on his way to hell. Warning and minor spoiler: This novel contains graphic violence, undefined relationships/harem, unconventional opinions/beliefs, and a hero who is as tactful as a dog at a cat show.

    God damn loved it First of all if you are wondering what this book is about (the description ain’t the best) then I’m going to summarise it for you. An assassin with split personality dies and a “GOD”(that’s Runner for all of you that know him, sitting with Nibbles on his lap) gives him chance to be reborn in a different world with a rather typical medieval/magic setting. The one condition is that the MC (Rene) has to be good. He has an alignment bar and if it turns red he dies. The GOD also supp God damn loved it First of all if you are wondering what this book is about (the description ain’t the best) then I’m going to summarise it for you.

The one condition is that the MC (Rene) has to be good. He has an alignment bar and if it turns red he dies. The GOD also suppressed MC’s abilities from his previous life as well as his “second personality” and it will only re emerge when he happens to be in a life threatening situation. And as you may imagine something happens and the story starts to roll. Now for the review: To be honest out of all Arand/Darren books, this one takes a spot in my top 3. It has all those similarities to his other books that I like but it’s also different. I especially enjoyed the little rhymes made by the monster and I found it endearing how Rene cared so much about children despite being a stone cold assassin. Now I gotta wait the full rotation for the next book but I’m damn sure it’s going to be worth it. And of course I like the fact that Runner’s present. He is my favourite character from this whole universe so more Runner = Better book for me.

    I loved this book. It was quite a bit of a change from some of the other William Arand books. The harem aspect wasn't as blatant where the MC was instantly throwing themselves into it. In this book the MC actually seemed to be developing relationships with the three love interests. I loved that ending that was hilarious! First its his family showing up and then comes his cat-girl love interest with her disturbing description of his courting her, then its his elfish housewife and her awkward desc I loved this book.

Then them meeting each other and the MC asking for Runner to kill him. That was hilarious! Also why was the first thing he though to say "Hello, there" for a supposed smart guy he was kinda dumb there XD. Loved how him and the Monster were both agreeing to ask for death.

Somehow he ends up with a harem and for the most part the women have personality and character and urges unlike most other harems I’ve accidentally read. There’s a lot going on in this book and for the most part it’s handled quite well. When I picked this up I thought a second book was out, but there isn’t, and I’m quite bummed. Hopefully I get to see it soon.

    Oddly satisfying but gory tale This is such a strange tale with a ton of humour and a bit of heart thrown in. The flawed MC with a split personality seemingly from childhood abuse is an Assassin who gets reborn into a new more medieval world to a rich family. The god tells him to be good and do good or he will die when his good/evil status bar runs out.

Can he stay good while defeating his enemies and protecting his loved ones? Can he avoid the harem trope..... This falls within the isekai category of reincarnation in a new world, with a ton of death, blood, orphans and dark humour. Maybe a little rom-com too? Whatever... it was such a fun read I don’t care.

The real reason he kills people is because he has a voice in his head that is blood thirsty and won't let him rest if it doesn't get blood every now and then.

Rene is an assassin that kills people for money... mostly. The real reason he kills people is because he has a voice in his head that is blood thirsty and won't let him rest if it doesn't get blood every now and then. This is somewhat of a multiple personality disorder type of thing. It happened due to trauma earlier in Rene's life. While the voice called Monster talks in Rene's head like a separate person, the Monster is actually Rene. something happens and he dies. He goes before a powerful god/being and is offered a chance to go to another world. He will be born there with all the memories from his previous life from birth. He is told that his whole purpose is to do good things. He is given a video game like display in his head that lets him know his overall status (blue for good, red for bad). If he ends up to far in the red, this god/being will take nasty revenge on him. The next thing we know, Rene is 18 years old and trying to get into University. He is kidnapped which awakens some hidden talents given to him by this god/being. The voice in his head comes back but it isn't as blood thirsty as it used to be. As far as the rest of the story goes, there is really too much going on and to complicated for me to make any sense out of it in this review. Suffice to say, it is pretty much like an typical William D. Arand story. The MC has a great amount of power. He overall is a very good person but does a lot of bad things and he surrounds himself with beautiful women but never seems to know what is going on with them. Not my favorite of his books but it is still good. My favorite part is when Rene has conversations with the Monster in his head. He rhymes a lot and has a good sense of humor.

    One line no-spoiler synopsis: Dexter meets Runner. Another strong book in the Runnerverse. There are many common themes with the author's other works, but handled with enough distinction to keep it fresh. If you like the author's back catalogue you'll probably agree that he seems to be getting better.

    Great adventure, drama, and humor. Wowser!! Really enjoyed this story of redemption (sort of..). This is the first reincarnation I've seen that retained previous memories and skills and it took warring with your inner demon to new, very entertaining levels. The harem aspect is very slow burn, suspenseful, and leads to some real LOL moments (the "I got nothing"-moment brought me to tears.) I'm very much looking forward to where this story goes.

That doesn't even account for how he had a crew just fall into his lap, and he trusted them. Is the author even trying? Is it the lack of smut (50% through the book and no smut so far) that is making him write this badly? I think this was the worst Arand book I read so far. How the things he set out at the beginning didn't hold true throughout the novel makes me believe he didn't do continuity checks, or didn't have his beta readers do it. This book was all over the place and wasn't much entertainment. It seems the author can only write interesting stories when he is using it as a vehicle to carry his smut. Seeing as this book had zero smut whatsoever, he didn't put his heart into making a story to hide said non existing smut. I will read the sequel only because I want to see how the author will tie all these books toegther. 2/5 Stars

    Good, Needs Editing The book was enjoyable, and the main character having a split personality was interesting to read. It did feel like it got caught in the weeds a bit here or there, but overall not an issue. It's good to see the trend of mysterious impending doom by foes (in the books the author writes) 3 steps ahead of the MC was broken. I do enjoy competent villains, but it's hard to appreciate a hero pinballing from one crisis to another, all the time.

So I appreciate the direction of this and some of the authors recent works more than some others. My main complaint would be the editing. I don't have to have everything absolutely perfect, but there were many occasions in this book with strange/missing punctuation that detracted from the read; and one weird bit where the MC transitioned scenes in the same paragraph from talking to a friend to listening in on enemies without any kind of warning, lead-in, or transition in page setup. I had to flip back and forth a few times in confusion and could only conclude it was a scene change missed in edit. Overall, I quite like the authors works and would recommend them to anyone who is interested in fantasy with a harem focus.

    Spoiler alert! This may be his best one yet. I flew through this one in like 2 days. I really love how his books are tied together. I had a feeling that the god at the beginning was Runner. And, when Amelia introduced herself, I one a for a fact. (In my mind anyway.) That it was. I just wish that he explain "The Shattering" as it's called in the Dungeon Deposed series, in more detail. The "Otherlife" series tells how he came to power, and gives enough info that you can guess how it happens. But, Spoiler alert! This may be his best one yet. I flew through this one in like 2 days.

Hell, Runner even shows up in "Super sales on Super Heroes". And as always I highly recommended anything by William D. Arand, whom I also believe to be Randy Darren. Which I also recommended, just not as emphatically.

    So d$&@ awesome! There are books that are great to read and then there are books that you just have to listen to as an audiobook. This is one of those. Andrea Parseneau is solidified as one of the best narrators I have heard by far. She does such a good job at all voice types (male, female, young, old, accents, etc). She makes it feel like a movie, not a script she is reading. The best part of the book for me was the dialogue between the MC and his inner demon. So interesting and hilarious. Andre So d$&@ awesome!

If I was reading this book I would probably give it 4 or 4 & 1/2 stars, but as an audiobook definitely 5 stars for me.

    Great story easily one of his best to date I've read all the books in his serieses and this is one of the best ones if not the best one. Great Character interesting premise in a man and his "monster". As with most of his books I can take or leave the Harem building. He's the master of building worlds, taking a interesting but usually flawed character giving them creative abilities gifts and/or Powers and molding a great story around them.

    I laughed through almost all of this book, particularly once the Monster's personality becomes more expressive. This is another title in the William D. Arand/Randi Darren universe but unlike his other works this one is a self-contained story (presumably set after the events of Dungeon Deposed #3) . This is probably one of the author's best works and can be enjoyed as both a reader who is familiar with the shared universe or is a complete first-timer it.

I'm very curious to see where Rene appears in the universe next and if Monster's Mercy will expand into it's own trilogy or remain as a very good stand-alone that will function as a backstory piece for Rene's character in other books. A solid four star rating in my eyes!

Now hes done it again a great book no nonsense OP hero with lady (troubles?) options then he knows what to do with. More world building for the coming War of Pocket Realties.

The best thing about this book is that unlike others that this author has written it really feels like a complete novel with no need for a sequel, saying that I wouldn't mind if the author continues with his usually pattern of releasing a trilogy based on these characters.

    Great series! I liked the mc. He’s smart but also human and down to earth. Likeable unlike other MCs that are either are too weak or too strong or prideful His schemes and vision is great and different than the typical build an army and making special equipment type of story. It’s more in the shadows with the MC using politics. I wish there was more of this like in House of Cards The females are great and have their appeal. Not enough time with them though but I was satisfied.

    I have reinforced my dislike of the Lit RPG genre of books. Personal taste and I didn’t know that this book was one before I bought it. Now in fairness, it was well done but did the level upping add anything of worth to the story? Not in my opinion but each to their own. Everything went a little too smoothly for our hero Rene so came across as very teen orientated. The narration of the book was fabulous.

    Very good. Very different. I don't always like what this author writes but it is all quality writing. As is this book. It is a very interesting tale of a psychotic assassin who, in a roundabout way, gets grabbed up by a god and sentenced to good works. With a caveat that if the feces impacts the rotary impeller he may get some of his former abilities back. Very good flow with no editing or grammar problems. Highly enjoyable! Very good.

    Fascinating Once again Arand gives us a new world, filled with multi-faceted characters and plot. He also gives us action from the first word to the last, and an MC whose flaws only make him more interesting. There’s also the trademark harem of very strong female characters who keep the MC on his toes. This one is also an odd combination of strong violence with practically no sex, while romance and seduction abound. It works. Definitely recommended (15+)

    Honestly amazing! I have read all of his books in the sovereign series, and this has got to be one of my new favorites! Monster best character! This book makes a lot more sense if you read the other series' books first. I am you to be looking forward to book 2 really bad, I feel addicted. Please read this book it's worth it. The characters are built great, and some of the lines actually made me laugh. Honestly amazing! I have read all of his books in the sovereign series, and this has got to be one of my new favorites!

    Can't wait for book two this one grab me like super heroes The beginning was slow and his interactions with the children is ok but his persona and interactions with his harem are fun. The story of his rise in power was great but I felt his "power-ups" came to quickly but even if triple the time it took I still believe he would have been victorious. Also enjoy how now the author protagonist is fighting against the harem.

    Fantastic Fantastic action “harem” book, I have harem in quotes because it’s not to grunge. For all of you who complain about harem books being overly sexual this is the book for you. Has a really fun story line, and Rene as stoic as he is is a fun main character who seems to surround himself with a variety of interesting people. I mean if not he will just kill them right? Read this book it’s a good one.

    Entertaining A pretty good series introduction, a little more on the humorous side, but similar storyline templates for William D. Arand books. There’s still the harem thing, but no sex, which was refreshing. The main character is interesting as well as (at times) brutal. A couple of the supporting characters have real potential, but need to be further developed. Action a plenty and a good story, I call this a success.

    Well Written, Not For Me I bought this book overlooking that it is LitRPG. I gave it four stars because it’s well-written, and it wouldn’t be fair to knock the author solely due to my tastes in books. The characters and descriptions were enjoyable, but I’m not fond of the leveling-up and near-invincibility of the protagonist. Overall, it was a fun read, but I’ll steer clear of the genre moving forward.

    Flawed Plot Solid characters, interesting action, and appealing supporting cast. Too bad the basic plot doesn't fit. The primary antagonist should have been brutally killed by the 2/3 mark. Instead, a vicious killer let's the jerk live despite insults, threats, logical fears, and a premonition of danger. So the villain lives long enough to do real evil, despite being comically inferior to the protagonist. Flawed Plot Solid characters, interesting action, and appealing supporting cast.

    Excellent Fantasy! A thoroughly enjoyable read! As fantasy goes, this tops the list of those I’ve read recently. It’s different in many aspects and very imaginative. Resurrected with a contract to do good or be brought back to the underworld, Rene, the main character does his best while continually arguing with his conscience. All, is fun. Lots of banter. Lots of intrigue, and great character support. I highly recommend this story and eagerly head to Book 2.

    I love it. The characters, the setting, Monster.. I love it. I've been a fan of Stand/Darren from my first read, and each book just seems to get better and better. Monster, by far, is my favorite character in this book, for his wit and bloodthirsty banter, and mostly for the last page. I'd give it higher than 5 if I could. I love it.
