Inhaltsangabe

At the gates between worlds...

In a war outside of time...

He fights for us.

Reclusive college student Jonathan Tibbs wakes in a pool of blood, not a scratch on him. His life is about to undergo a massive shift. A violent and merciless otherworldly enemy unleashes slaughter in the streets, calling out in a language only he understands.

And it is seeking its challenger.

In order to defeat the threat, Jonathan must become a temporal weapon...while remaining completely anonymous. Unfortunately, harnessing off-world powers has its own special challenges...

The Never Hero is the first installment in The Chronicles of Jonathan Tibbs - a mind-bending, genre-crossing action-adventure trilogy.

Incredible

This is easily one of the most interesting stories I've ever read ... or listened to, I guess. And to make this fantastic: the writing is excellent, too!

If I had to classify this series I'd declare it a deconstruction of the hero-mythos. And I'm not talking about "deconstruction" in the sense of an ultra-realistic or ultra-dark reimagining. No, nothing so clichéd. Not that this story doesn't have its fair share of clichés. It embraces them, however, <i>deconstructs</i> them in quite the literal meaning; taking those tropes apart, dissecting them, analyzing them and trying to look at them from other angles, using those things to create an incredible take on a character study. Nerdy, really.

So, if you want to read books with an exciting story, interesting, evolving characters and intelligent, smart, outright clever writing, combining that with a pleasing voice and interesting voice acting, this is for you.

Ein wirklich interessanter Beginn

Dieses Werk gibt einen etwas anderen Blick auf den unwilligen Helden. Faszinierend, unterhaltsam, zu empfehlen.

Das einzige, was dieses Werk von einer perfekten Bewertung abhält sind meine persönlichen Präferenzen in Pacing, Plotstruktur und Charakterbildung.

Ich lege jedem mit nur einem tangentiellen Interesse an Urban-Fantasy oder Science-Fantasy ans Herz, diese Geschichte zu erleben.

Persönlich bin ich sehr gespannt darauf, mir den zweiten Titel zuzulegen.

Not your usual fantasy story

An interesting take on the typical tropes of fantasy stories, this book follows not many conventions and kept surprising me. The main character is relatable and refreshing after following so many teenagers on their path to prophetized destiny. He feels like a real person confronted with very extraordinary circumstances. All in all a very exciting story, even for veterans of the genre.

Incomplete

Würden Sie dieses Buch einem Freund empfehlen? Warum oder warum nicht?

The story doesn't have a real ending, it is obviously just an introduction to the book, but that was not mentioned in the books summary. The story was incomplete and only wasted my time, well written but not worth the while.
