a story that sucks you in and won't let you walk away!

Reviewed it on July 9, 2023

I really enjoyed the several times I've read this story...agree that the last chapter leave a bit to be desired in how quick it wraps things up...and I really wish Shaddoth would continue the story because the tail of Jason is FAR FAR FAR from over...


One of my all time favorites!

Reviewed it on April 5, 2023

I've read this four or five times now and I love it. The character building, the world, the action. Truly my only complaint would have to be the pacing towards the end.

The story progressed at a certain level but then at the end it was suddenly rushed and abruptly ends. Felt a little jarring and left me underwhelmed. But doesn't stop me from reading it again and again haha.

A really fun read.

I've read Axeman several times and have enjoyed each read. The world building is interesting, the characters have complex backgrounds and I am really, really, really looking forward to a sequel.


Beyond good

Best of its kind I've ever read. Real people managing in difficult situations. I can hardly wait for more.


Super hero in a real world

Riveting storyline.
Awesome plot.

Get a weapon, train in its use, and defeat monsters. Simple and yet not so simple.
As there's no savegame, you die, it's game over.

Level up and be stronger or make a mistake and die.


Great story

Good universe building. Ends like there could be a sequel but not a cliffhanger. Well worth the read.


Amazing book and hopefully universe!

Reviewed it on February 7, 2021

The plot really clicks with me, it's a world I wish I could live in, so it's easy to become fully immersed within it. The characters are fully fleshed out and all are fantastic. Most importantly I cannot wait for the next book :)


Great read!

Excellent litrpg

Really looking forward to the sequel. Excellent premise. While the ending isn't a cliffhanger, it left me needing more resolution, so I hope that Shaddoth moves quickly to get us axeman2!


Super book

Reviewed it on April 29, 2020

Well worth it’s price and a great read. The RPG aspects worked better than I expected and there was a delightful cohesion to the book where it just clicked together.

Loved the story and will be very keen to get hold of a sequel. If and when..


Solid litrpg.

Reviewed it on April 28, 2020

If you're into litrpg you'll be very satisfied with what Axeman has to offer. It's a fast read that doesn't stint on the action or the character growth. I'll definitely be on the lookout for any other books this author puts out in the future.


Great Read

Great Read - I can’t wait for the sequel


Great story - will be reading again

Reviewed it on April 24, 2020

One of my favorite stories to read this year. Shaddoth has really grown as an author and he is one of my favorite authors.


Yep, great book

Reviewed it on April 23, 2020

This is a fantastic book. Glad I picked it up. Plot and people were interesting and well presented. Plot was different and worked well.

I also wish the sequel was here :).

There are a few spelling mistakes and the epub didn't "bold" or whatever some of the things he wanted, but that was very minor and didn't detract from the book.

Thank you for writing and allowing us to read the finished book. I was entranced.

Just shut up and read

It was a entertaining book. Little bit of everything inside. I did not notice any big mistakes. I never look for mistakes on my first read. I enjoyed the book enough to buy a copy. I love the author's stories. Would firmly recommend to anyone.
Thanks for the story.

Really great story, can’t wait for book 2 to find out who the person is that’s been doing the thing.


Great read

Reviewed it on April 27, 2020

Another triumph by Shaddoth, I really enjoyed it. They're were a quite a few errors in the story, which made it a little harder to enjoy, but still an amazing read.


Solid GameLit story

Reviewed it on April 23, 2020

Shaddoth has matured as an author. The hero isn't ridiculously OP in this story, and there's a slew of weird unpredictable events, both good and bad, that affect the protagonist.

The spelling/orthography is still off kilter, for which I deducted one star.

All in all, I liked the tale and look forwardcto the sequel.
