    “Zeal of the Mind and Flesh: A Cultivating Gamelit Harem Adventure (Spellheart #1)” wasn’t what I expected, but I really enjoyed this audiobook! I love the cover for this book, and I liked the teaser “Hot elf girls, magic powers, and an inter-dimensional spaceship.” My biggest disappointment with the book is that there’s very little lesbian romance (only one lesbian couple), and very little girl-girl steamy action. In a matriarchal world where only one in a thousand elves are born male, you’d exp “Zeal of the Mind and Flesh: A Cultivating Gamelit Harem Adventure (Spellheart #1)” wasn’t what I expected, but I really enjoyed this audiobook! I love the cover for this book, and I liked the teaser “Hot elf girls, magic powers, and an inter-dimensional spaceship.” My biggest disappointment with the book is that there’s very little lesbian romance (only one lesbian couple), and very little girl-girl steamy action. In a matriarchal world where only one in a thousand elves are born male, you’d expect sapphic relationships would be extremely common. While the elves apparently see nothing strange at all about two women in a relationship, they spend most of their time lusting after the rare man….especially the rare non-elf man: a “Chaka”. Other than that, there’s lots to like in this book. The world building is pretty thorough; sometimes almost a bit too detailed. There’s plenty of humor: an AI obsessed with cleaning, pop culture references including the interdimensional spaceship being a TARDIS, and MC Theo’s reluctance to endure “death by snu-snu”. There’s also lots of battles with various monsters, and with various elves. This is not a world where women running things reduces war! The various types of magic and Gamelit/LitRPG points based “leveling up” is well-done. I especially enjoyed the times that Theo’s plans were derailed and he had to come up with something completely new to survive. Theo’s reluctant to build a harem, he wanted a monogamous relationship with the “mad alchemist kidnapper” Sava. But, Lady Nela, Mage Acolyte Melise, and would-be assassin Illiel are all well-crafted characters. So is Yorik the Orc, who has pledged herself to Theo but is not (yet?) part of his harem. The scene where Theo and Sava meet Yorik is pretty hilarious: “I be not an orc.” The orc said slowly in broken speech. “I be elf princess. Pretty and much powerful. I take money, and this is good and right.” There are some differences between the wording in the Kindle book (it’s on KU) and the audiobook, so some editing took place that wasn’t consistent across media. All-in-all, I enjoyed the story, and the frequent descriptions of the sexy, lustful and battle loving elves, even if they were scripted mostly for a hetero audience. I recommend “Zeal of the Mind and Flesh” and look forward to the sequel being released as an audiobook. 4*

    Our hero is stuck in the game world, but takes it all in stride. After all, it is like a second home to him and his friends. Alas, we have a story in search of an editor.

    This was a good first book, the heroine Sava was really to my liking but she gets overshadowed by the latecomers into the harem. The author did a decent job in creating his magic system, I can't wait to see what will happen in book 2. There was no real problem with the story.

    The idiot MC with a Clean freak of a AI was cute at first. But then it just got seriously old. I get it. Its a plot device but it really really gets on ones nerves. 3 stars.. Would have been 4 or higher

    Rating 3.0 stars This was just okay. It was hard to figure out where the author was trying to take me. It seemed like every 10-15% of the story the author would take me in another direction. Some of that was to move the story along, but some of it made the previous parts seem a little unfinished.

(view spoiler)[ He starts to learn earth magic and I think he is going to try and build that up, but he switched to mind magic even though he is told that having two types is difficult to level. He has elf women around him who want nothing but his seed and yet he rarely has sex with any of them, even though they are more power and control over him. He comes up with multiple plans and every time something happens and those plans turn out useless. He meets new people that are important for a while and then are missing for a good portion of the story. It starts with Sava, she takes up a good portion of his time and they have a lot of sex until other people show up, then nothing. I thought the orc would have a bigger part in the story. He kept wanting to get back to his AI, but never did. (hide spoiler)] Theo is brought to another world where he is supposed to get stronger (there is a little more to it than that but essentially that is what happens). He went with 2 friends but once arriving there his body is synchronized to the dimensional spaceship that brought them to that world. This took about 400 years and when he wakes up his friends aren't there anymore. He does have his personal AI which he brought with him and uses that to upgrade the ship he was using. He needs food and water though, so he has to leave the ship. (view spoiler)[ The next part felt like a dungeon dive. He fights some monsters and gains some experience, which he can use to upgrade the ship. He gets to the surface and then it is more of a "stranded on a island and need to learn how to survive story" for the next little bit. He gets food and water, makes shelter, tries to make weapons, etc. After a while he comes across a group of hot elfs that want to capture him. He escapes but is wounded and passes out in the river. He wakes up bound and in pain. Another elf, Sava, found him and healed him but wants to use him to gain in power. Being from earth and human gives him a lot of vitality which other elves crave for their progression. There aren't many male elves, maybe 1 0f 1000 and they are very weak compared to earth men. She gives him handjobs and blowjobs to get his precious semen to use for her elixirs and potions. Despite being kidnapped and essentially raped, he starts to have feelings for her. He uses his point upgrades to learn the language and gains her trust enough for her to take him on a trip with her. This is dangerous because everyone wants a piece of the male human. The next part is where he learns how to cultivate. He is attuned to the earth and uses that element to cultivate. He begins to grow and build at an incredible rate. He then negotiates with a group that is desperate for his help because they were attacked and need to get stronger. Normally men are pampered but are pushed to the side but Theo doesn't want that and starts to take a leadership role. That is until the rest of the group he is allied with comes and there is someone of a higher cultivation level among them who takes over. Now Theo has to start over with this new leader. This leads to problems with other groups in the area and more conflict. (hide spoiler)]

    So-So with Potential to be Good [★★★☆☆] The start of this book is rudderless and full of narrative loose ends which go nowhere. So much fat and redundancy. The novel goes in three or four separate directions - which don't strike me as fertile ground and seemingly the Author felt the same - only for each to be abandoned consecutively. It just begs to be rewritten. I can understand the creative process that would result in such a messy start, but that doesn't mean it didn't need cleaning up.

It just begs to be rewritten. I can understand the creative process that would result in such a messy start, but that doesn't mean it didn't need cleaning up. Even when the book gets its feet under it there is careless writing/poor editing. Characters are constantly using the name "Songstone" Clan in conversation rather than the new moniker "Heartwood" supposedly invented to protect their identity. Even in front of characters that this switch was deliberately intended to mislead. When the fact of the Songstone's continued existence is revealed they are somehow surprised despite the fact that nobody seems to use "Heartwood" pretty much ever and members refer to themselves as Songstone Clan. Mind aspect apparently turns practitioners into brain-dead drones from them to be this oblivious. Stark differences are drawn between tribes and 'Clans' only for the term clan to be used as a catchall encompassing groups that can only be considered tribes. Minor continuity errors too. On more than a few occasions characters seemingly do things twice or props are introduced despite already being present. Even once the umbrella of plot stops shedding characters like raindrops, characters have a tendency to just fade back into the background after a while. It needs more of an active cast. That isn't something that can be fixed easily by a rewrite but it is also more of a concern with an eye towards sequels than a fatal flaw in the book itself. One of the things I do like about this novel is the commentary on leadership in Cultivation-based societies. Often wuxia seems to boil down to "Might = Capability", the be all and end all, but might and leadership ability are very different things. So this book isn't terrible - it does not plumb those depths. It is average. And for a first book, in this genre, it is fairly solid overall. But it has issues which prevent it being more. Nothing that couldn't be corrected with a careful targeted revision, but I don't review books on what could be or could have been but what is.

    Really disjointed--scenes jump around without transition. There's no real character development or world building. The majority female cast are overall indistinguishable from one another. What happened to the characters at the beginning? Why didn't the protagonist go back to Mac or rarely think about him? There are no real conflicts since the main character seems to be able to overcome each potential challenge and come out the winner. Always.

There are no real conflicts since the main character seems to be able to overcome each potential challenge and come out the winner. Always. It's not fun to read about a character who always bests other characters, who learns something new within minutes, and who dazzles every other character because of it. There were no equivalent characters in skill to the protagonist, What I gleaned from the protagonist was that he was a reflection of the author, and/or the author's desire to see himself. There was way too much boosting of the main character, and how smart he was, how strong he became, how he was irresistible to women, etc. This happened so often that I got annoyed by it. There wasn't ONE thing that the MC was OK at. The main character definitely didn't come across as especially likable. The description of the women was unrealistic. I know it's a fantasy novel, but the female characters were A-OK with a harem scenario, with serving men whatever they desired, with literally bowing down to the male protagonist when he demanded he be the leader of a clan (the female leader agreed with this request with no problem). I just can't stress enough how this book reads like a fantasy that the author has about himself. It's not accessible to others. Not sure who the intended audience is supposed to be.

    I wasn't sure after the first few pages that I'd even be able to finish this, as the initial set-up pointed in a direction I've seen before and wasn't interested in revisiting. However, it quickly veered away from both the "bros" and the odd-couple MC/AI relationship. Both of those will likely come back in the next book (assuming that there is one), but they were mercifully faded out quickly here. I don't mean to say that the two situations/tropes I refer to above are necessarily terrible, but t I wasn't sure after the first few pages that I'd even be able to finish this, as the initial set-up pointed in a direction I've seen before and wasn't interested in revisiting.

I don't mean to say that the two situations/tropes I refer to above are necessarily terrible, but they're hard to get right and many writers lack the skill to do so. A lot of cultivation, which isn't my favourite thing in a book, but the author came up with an intelligent, analytical MC who applied scientific principles to what he could. This was an interesting wrinkle, and the fact that he had to get by on guile as opposed to some sort of Mary Sue OP bs served to hold my attention once it got going. This one averaged out to a 3.5 for me, and I really wish that Goodreads had a better gradation of ratings between 3 and 5 as this seems to be a problem (albeit a personal one) I'm seeing more of.

However, when the first major change strikes, there's still over 90% of the book remaining, which equates to nearly 500 pages. Something significant had to happen in that time, right?

This book surpassed my expectations and I'm looking forward to the next, just to see what happens. There were a few inconsistencies, some counting errors, some minor grammar issues, but otherwise a well done book.

    A decent first book. Overall the book was fun to read. The author took awhile to get me engaged with the story but the middle part of this book was good.

It wasn't until the MC started meeting others on the new isekai world that things really became very incongruent.

After all up until this point we were being told that this person was one who cared more about mental growth than physical growth, but of course put into a situation where there is someone even a little bit aggressive he becomes super over powered. The funny thing is that later on, before the MC really gets into the cultivation aspect of this new world he describes an image of himself showing that he's "flabby". Yet by this point now only has he overpowered a group of 6, and a group of 3, he MURDERED someone who was trying to save their friend! The funnest thing is that he mentions at one point after these two fights that he believes in chivalry and has not yet hit a woman... I guess driving a spear into ones guts and leaving them to die doesn't count as hitting... WTF... If you're interested in the sex scenes... I would suggest also finding another book as the ones in this didn't really titillate. They were rather flat, short, and physically focused. Never exploring any sort of emotion other than "I GOT OFF!". Some of them also had me questioning why something like consent wasn't included... I guess some people like rapey things, but I'm not one of them.

    I suppose a free ebook isn’t the best place to look for an exemplar of the GameLIT genre, or the Cultivation genre, or the Dungeoncore genre. I was curious about these, as this ebook advertised itself as being all three, as well as also being in the Harem genre (the characteristics of which are a bit more obvious). I can’t say I’m enthused. The game interface translates poorly into narrative, making everything exposition. This story is all tell and no show, infodump after infodump.

I can’t say I’m enthused. The game interface translates poorly into narrative, making everything exposition. This story is all tell and no show, infodump after infodump. It’s intrusive, butting into the flow, whereas different panels on a screen can be read side by side as multimedia. The cultivation aspects just make the story progression tedious, slow, and repetitive. Boring, basically. To be honest, I never got into computer games for that very reason. Building experience points always was a grinding slog to me, punctuated by incomprehensible game overs. In this instance, the protagonist is always successful, easily gratified, and full of himself. There’s no jeopardy and no reason to care about his progress. The progression methods described are rather complicated, requiring endless, droning infodumps. So many types of zeal, methods, techniques, ranks, which have no real plot purpose as they all seem invented in the moment to serve as single use devices rather than building up a detailed universe. As to the dungeoncore, I don’t think I’ve figured out what that is. Probably this will be explained in subsequent episodes. Finally, the sex aspect is about as titillating as the damp patch on the bed after the event, often eschewing the complexities of respect or consent. Like the rest it’s procedural, repetitive, and soulless. And far too quickly over. If sex is meant to be an element of the story, it should be paid more attention rather than glossed over. Nah, this is not for me. Maybe that’s just the writing in this instance. The author can handle the English language without too many hiccups, but this is a dull, joyless read that relies heavily on the reader’s familiarity with the settings and tropes of the genre. For a newcomer to these tropes, there’s very little worldbuilding to get an idea of what’s going on or its significance. It all manages to be bland and confusing at the same time. I’ll give this a 2/5 and I’ll avoid the rest of the series. It’s hard to categorise this novel. It’s seemingly a portal fantasy but with a protagonist from a supposedly future timeline. The game interface is tech as well, so is this sci-fi or fantasy? I’ll plump for the latter, just because there’s elves involved.

    MC gets a kind of tardis and is sucked into a world full of female elves (and very few males). He leaves his ship (and the AI with a clean fetish) and learns magic from the elves while getting sucked into the politics of the world. The beginning is just chaotic and could really need an editor. It reads not as if the author had a concept from the beginning.

I always wonder why you don't make more out of the characters you put so much time in to make them interesting?!

    Messy The beginning is...terrible. Just awful. Truthfully, a lot of LitRPG novels have trouble with the ‘real world’ portion before the game portion starts. So it’s kinda par for the course, but still really bad. The dialogue is just so bad... Then they finally get to the game world. It gets better *and* worse. The stupefying dialogue stops, so that’s good. But the world building is terrible. And the MC is laughable.

    I really enjoyed the world building and cultivation aspects of the story (even though Theo jumps from earth to mind) but the fact that he essentially is supposed to have fallen in love after being kidnapped and essentially raped and then going on to agree to join with a faction that attacks him and his so-called lover just lost me.

    Fun and enjoyable Book one is where an author drives home the stake in new worlds and we see if they have what it takes to stay the course for future books. This being book one, we see a great plotline, memorable characters, good world-building, and solid skills from the author. Looking forward to future books!

    Seriously bad Plot holes, repeated grammer errors, an MC who literally does nothing, terrible pacing and almost every female is a feminazi who's just interested in either raping or killing him. Not sure what damage the author experienced, but this book is 1) not well written or entertaining and 2) is a cry for help. Seek help man. You have some issues to work through.

    Zeal of the Mind and Flesh This is a good book to the for series I'm looking forward to reading the next book I like the characters I like the magic and science blended together I hope he gets back to the ship and opens the alchemy Lab so he can get some more powerful spells weapons and armor protections Zeal of the Mind and Flesh This is a good book to the for series I'm looking forward to reading the next book I like the characters I like the magic and science blended together I hope he gets back to the ship and opens the alchemy Lab so he can get some more powerful spells weapons and armor protections

    Interesting take on magic Enjoyed this book and its new take on magic and to learn it. Like that theMC isn’t initially overpowered at all and still seems to be building. Want to see how this series continues.

    A very entertaining read, as I read a lot of this type of fantasy and found a number of parallels to other stories but there is enough orginality to draw me in and keep me reading, looking forward to book two.

    This book was a fun read. I enjoyed the story and the characters. There where some grammar issues but once you over look that the story was fun. I'm looking forward to the next book.

    Mediocre execution Good concept, but mediocre execution. Badly needs character development for protagonist as well as supporting cast. A bit of introspection or self awareness wouldn't hurt MC either. Mediocre execution Good concept, but mediocre execution.

    The second half was just boring and frustrating. The main character just felt like he was being carried by the stories of other and not his own. I will say the writing is competent and the passing is good, but the characters were kinda boring and not well developed.

    If you ask me if it's good enough to be worth rereading!? Yes, I believe it is as I just finished my second time reading book 1 as I expect book 4 should be released soon so I'm rereading all three books to prepare If you ask me if it's good enough to be worth rereading!?

    Fun This book was fun and just twisted enough to be thoroughly entertaining. Glad that book two is already out. Going to read it now.
