    Inhaltsangabe

    Some disasters can only be avoided if you know they’re coming....

    On Karell, you are either blessed by the gods, granted a unique power and the ability to gain experience and levels, or you are forgotten. Micah Silver was a boy picked for greatness. Chosen by the gods to bear a mythic power, he longed to take his place amongst the heroes and legends he grew up reading about.

    Unfortunately, his primary blessing only allows him to travel into the past by sacrificing his class, wealth, and levels - a psychological burden that Micah is reluctant to shoulder. But, even if Micah is unwilling, fate has a way of forcing you to face your destiny...and running away can cost you everything.

    Over and over again...

    Experience the start of a time-looping LitRPG series where a reluctant hero is forced to fight against an impossible catastrophe. Using his talents for enchanting items and summoning creatures, he must retrace his steps and grow stronger in a potentially futile effort to prevent tragedy and protect his family.

    Not a true Groundhog Day scenario

    I was drawn towards this book by the obvious gimmick - the "travel back in time" mechanic that is the core conceit of this series. Unfortunately, the main character receives a very constrained and limited version of this power - its time travel "distance" is fixed at 5 years with an equally long cooldown, it cannot be activated instantly / in combat, and it does not automatically activate on death (that we know of).

    All of this means that the ability cannot actually be used very freely to experiment or costlessly discover new information that can be used on future runs, which is the appeal of this sort of scenario. Instead the protagonist is forced to carefully consider whether to activate the ability and make sure he can survive the minimum five years between activations.

    The protagonist is also very focused on his social relationships and trying to keep his family and friends safe, which on one hand is definitely one of this book's greatest strengths, but on the other hand does not play very nicely with his ability. The obvious thing to do with this version of the ability would be to take the long view, be very patient and careful in order to make sure you survive to the end of your run, obtain and train skills and spells that are permanently kept in order to grow more powerful, and keep up social relationships in order to not go insane while doing it.

    But the idea of using his power to slowly and patiently grind until he can overcome his problems never occurs to the protagonist. He treats his ability as an emergency reset button, to be used only after things have gone completely unsalvageable, not something that's a key to power all by itself. He takes enormous risks always trying to solve his problems in the current loop, instead of considering that he does not need to succeed immediately, but could come back and try again later as long as he can keep himself alive until the end of the loop.

    This first book was definitely a good listen, and I enjoyed the worldbuilding and the interaction between characters. But the sequel was a step down for me (owing at least partially to the fact that the whole second book ends up being a single run without any time travel happening), and if you are looking for a fun romp with the main character leveraging his absurdly broken time travel power, this series does not really deliver on that premise.

    Großartig!Kaum eine der üblichen Genre Schwächen.

    Wenige Textschwaten an Levelinfos die sich leicht überspringen lassen.
    Nachvollziehbare Entscheidungen und Handlungen.
    Sauber und gut gesprochen.
    Sehr solide.

    Decent story, needs another edit

    Decent enough story and a decently sympathetic and hard working protagonist. There are a fair number of plot holes that should have been spottet in an edit. (For example mentioning that children can't use money and then later in that same chapter the protagonist, a child at the time, buying animals)
    The pace is very fast, and gives little room foe the supporting cast to shine and grow.
    But overall a nice read and im looking forward to book 2.

    Pretty good story

    For what it was, I liked it, the story and the crunch could be better during act 3, but I'd certainly give it another listen.
