I liked it. It had the usual tropes of the genre with enough new twists to be unique and interesting. Buildings and vehicles transforming in to gollums was amusing and made for some great action. An adult mc made for a good change, the nerdy pimpled secret king gets old and I can't stand whiney mc's. One trope I could do without is the clueless about women one. It's not difficult to understand women. Another writing tick that detracted from the novel was the childish words and phrasing used to replace swearing. Swear or leave it out, don't make up new ones that detract from the tale. Given the conclusion there is lots of room for expansion in this setting. If so I'll be reading them.
Our MC is a tad lucky, but thoughtful at times. When the world changes, he is able to find a class due to his ancestral heritage. This Class turns out to be quite powerful. He also is able to get a Manticore as a companion/pet. The start of the book reminds me Tao Wong’s “System Apocalypse” series, but it develops nicely as the book continues. Interesting & proving to be a good read with future books promising interesting story lines. Read it on Kindle Unlimited.
