I took a risk using a hard earned credit on this book... I don't regret it in the least! I love urban fantasy because Jim Butcher got me hooked, but I hate it because there is so much derivative garbage overwhelming the shelves. Finding a book that has substance is often impossible. Too many author's are willing to tweak an existing premise and churn out book after book with the ambition of selling rather than telling a story. This book is the reason I still search under this genre for new reads. The story was original and engrossing. Even though this is only the first book in a series, the author gave the impression he was telling a story, rather than churning out an endless stream of directionless books. I can't wait for the next book.

Yes, it's a great book as the top reviews state, but only if you make it to the second half. It starts out feeling like a young adult superhero type of novel with characters that have boring archetypal motives. I was thinking about returning it at a couple of points. I kept listening because I was using it to kill time walking our dogs and didn't want to search for another book. But, by the end, the author has made things complex, interesting, three-dimensional enough that I'm going to get the second book.

Would you listen to The Never Hero again? Why?
The Never Hero was a good balance of fun and realism, also the interesting world building will need reviewing before book 2.

this audiobook brilliant it has a really good backstory and full of action packed drama and it has really good plots also the main character has a lot of deaths not like books out there. he thought a lot about the character character this author have thought about the main character things that make him tick and it's a really odd book as it tells of two worlds one trying to save themselves and the other in desperate need

I loved this! I was pleasantly surprised at how drawn into this story I became. The characters are well written, the story well paced and the narration impeccable. Can't wait to hear more.
Totally enjoyed this book and am looking forward to more! Definitely recommend this to everyone!
