The Forgotten Faithful: UnderVerse Series, Book 2 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Things are looking up for Jax, more or less. He's met a cool girl (who's a wisp), got some new friends (who're Dwarves and Cat people and Elves and all sorts), and started a war.... (Whoops!)
That last one might not be the best idea he's had yet, admittedly, but the guy was an ass, and he deserved it....
Only thing is, they say an Englishman's home is his castle, and Jax's home is in ruins...this place isn't going to be any use in defending his new people unless he gets it sorted, and fast!
He needs material, equipment, magic and people, most of all he needs time, time to get things ready, to get his ships in the air and his house in order....
When you're surrounded on all sides, outclassed, outnumbered and everyone's probably a bit brighter than you are, there's only one option.... Attack!

Other aspects are all right if somewhat annoying; something's I would expect to see in a much younger person not a main character who's reportedly early 30s.
And perhaps this is more a personal annoyance, while I realize that along with the main character some people from Earth have been sent through to this underverse over the years the thought of finding a airship/warship with a name like Agamemnon's Wrath just doesn't fit. Why would something be named off someone who doesn't exist in this world. Also it seems like the author kept forgetting the name of the ship as it alternated between Agamemnon's Wrath and Agamemnon's Pride throughout the book.
Despite these "annoyances" I've enjoyed the story so far and I'm still reading...
The major head scratcher is that he's fighting so many strong opponents that he's got to drink a gallon of healing potions from being cut to pieces so much. This is even with his fighting team backing him up and his patron goddesses' assistance. There must be a limit to how much healing one man can take, like there's a limit to how many skill books he can absorb. Somewhere along the line, he should also do some battle planning, or find some tatical advisors to help him figure out that his "go big or go home" mindset can only carry him but so far.
I do like the teasers that Jax's brother is now a minion of the death god who buggered the world and betrayed the other gods. It wil be interesting to see how this works out.
All said, l quite enjoyed the story and am looking forward to continuing to read the series.
But…it just leaves me a bit flat.
The plot armor is almost too strong. The MC continuously ‘breaks’ the rules and manages to find a diamond in a pile of poo. It feels like watching the old Hee-Haw skit (“That’s good?”, “No, that’s bad.”, That’s bad?”, “No, that’s good!”).
I don’t know. I just can’t solidly recommend this. But I equally don’t think it’s *bad*.

However, I found the main character extremely annoying. Behaves incredibly recklessly and childishly, but avoids all consequences due to plot armour or simply plot holes. I held on for book 2 hoping this was setup for some kind of character development, but I can't read any more. With the MC constantly winning from his nonsensical plans and rage induced violence, with the author seemingly trying to make him a likeable antihero, why would he need to change?
The initial villain does everything to make the MC hate him, but also trains him for combat and sends him on a mission without setting up any leverage? The same villain who puts his maids under magical compulsion didn't even try the same on the MC, just hoping the guy he's abusing will do him a favour once he's free??
Yes at times the fact the characters seem to understand our MCs choice words easily is strange but overall it doesn’t matter as he’s a great character.
Not OP and pretty human if damaged. This just adds to the story and makes it so worth reading.
Download and enjoy I did 😁
As a genre sometimes the "improved this stat", "killed this many villains" demonstration can be excessive; I thought this had a good balance sufficient to show his improvements etc.
Some visuals - maps, pictures of characters, different species - would be be helpful to me to describe e.g. the Mer, Drow etc but others may think differently.
Looking forward to Book 3!!
Holey moley. This goes off full throttle and just picks up momentum.
This series is going on the shelf. Love the art, love the pace and characters. Top notch. If Indiana Jones and Crom had a baby boy it would be this series.
