I like everything about this book except for one thing; what started off as a guy who has 300 years to become strong enough to protect his wife has turned into a guy who wants to protect his family and kinda does whatever he feels like. The original goal was he'll kill anyone who gets in his way of growing stronger and protecting her, but now it feels like he's completely forgotten about it. Why does he care about a bunch of 20 year olds? I mean, maybe he likes them, but he calls one of them his daughter? What?

I don’t like the characters. They’ve turned too bland. The interactions are pretty bad, a snake wouldn’t ‘scream internally’, wouldn’t misplace his words and the characters wouldn’t point it out so blatantly. The girls are like anime figurines, I can literally here them saying “Kyaa!” Every second phrase. I’ve got no issue with the whole marriage thing since we need some direction to head in, but the deliveries are sloppy. And a really big issue of mine is the entire way you’re handling the snake. He’s a dude who’s 100 years old. He wouldn’t put with the shit of a buch of 20 year old girls, he wouldn’t have a soft spot for anyone other than his Sarah who he lived he’s entire life with and it wouldn’t be out of character to wake up and just leave them.

Worse than the first book

You basically took the worse point of your first book and ditched the best to make a second book with those.

The only redeeming quality of your story was the world building and the well done LitRPG and evolution aspects, wich are either non present here or badly done.

And for whatever reason you decided to make the single worse point of your first book, namely the interaction between the one sided robots that you call "characters" take 90% of all chapters up to date (Chapter 11)

You can't do conversation between characters that feel genuine. Everything feels like they are reading off a script in a badly written school theather piece. I can barely keep myself from cringing everytime someone speaks, and i'm usually really tolerant on shit dialogue/characters.

And don't get me started on how uninteresting your characters are, mostly because in your writting style their interactions define them. Did i mention those were absolutely horrible ?

Unless you take time to adress this issue this story is a waste of time.

For Any one wondering, this is the continuation of A Snakes Life, and holy crap its gonna be good. Only the first chapter is out but im already stoked as hell. The authors good and this upcoming book looks like its gonna be crazy good, huge time skip with lots of interesting things that happened during it, overall its going to be great!

Thank you author for writing this and thank you for the grate story as it is the story that brought and kept me on this site to read( I first found the site just as the last two chapters of a snakes rise). finally thank you for actually trying to finish something or at least a clean cliff, as opposed to some on this sight ether stoping a good idea for a story after 5-7 chapters or rushing a conclusion to “just end it all already” with no sense of story other then “ this is cool “ or “ throw stuff till it sticks!”. So in conclusion thank you for giving us one of (if not the) best story’s on Royal road as a site.

The Second Book we all needed

This is the continuation of the story A Snakes Life and like the previous book Torga is just getting bigger and bigger~. Currently only 2 chapters are out as of writing this review so I cannot comment on the story so far but I hope the story quality stays consistent with Book 1. Grammar is excellent, the story is coherent and with likable characters this book is a must read.

I loved the first part, and was waiting with impatience the start of the second. And the first chapter was awesome, keep going, and this summary made me shiver with joy. Go Torga, only one planet will not be enough for calming your hunger.

It's the sequel to the other snake book by the snake Ken.

Its good shut up and read it.

I know this review is shit but.

Fuck I just really bloody enjoy this book mainly because Torga, the MC, is fucking awesome.

So yeah fuck it have a 5 Ken and get back to the dungeon  and give me chapter 8 

~Love From Lord <3

Aight so I just realised this book has shit individual scores since some people have apparently not read legit one star stories so Ima just buff up these scores due to the fact that they are all a 4 at minimum.

Since there is a difference between not liking a story and a story being bad, and this is definitely not the latter.

So again shut up and read it.

The story comes from a new perspective with a lead that doesn't share the classical beliefs. This is a story about a snake pursuing power in order to protect his wife and will stop at nothing in order to reach the pinnacle. This is unique and interesting and try as i might but i cant stop reading it. The only downside i can really think of is that the update is infrequent but other than that its a good story
