He never saw this coming
Ren Lewis has the life he's always wanted: the perfect woman and the perfect job as an agent for the Lucidites, fixing problems before they happen.
And yet, he's still miserable.
He blames the monster buried inside of him for his problems. But what this redheaded Brit doesn't realize is his life is about to be intensely transformed. Problems that he never could have fathomed begin to surface one at a time until his life quickly spirals out of control.
Ren, who has never considered himself quite human, is about to learn just how flawed and vulnerable he really is. There just might be problems he doesn't have answers for, villains he can't defeat alone, and a heart in his chest that is actually capable of breaking. Listeners witness a new side to this man, a side that will make him, if for only an instant, appear human.
This powerful genius will meet his match.
And she has the ability to do something special. She can break Ren Lewis.
Ren: God’s Little Monster is the second audiobook in the Dream Traveler fantasy series written by Sarah Noffke and narrated by Tim Campbell. Suspense, snark and bundles of joy… oh my!
Ren is a traveler whose special abilities allow him to travel into the future and prevent great tragedies thus saving humankind. Not that the ingrates would notice. This story picks up not long after the events of book one. Ren is living with his girlfriend Dahlia and working as an agent for the Lucidites. Life is good until it isn’t. Health issues, new responsibilities on the home front that may just end his love life and a villain that has him completely perplexed. Eep!
This was positively addictive. I laughed, became caught up in the case and adore the new character introduced. The dynamics changed, and it introduced another side of Ren. Psst.. don’t tell the fool that. He tries so hard to feign disinterest in everyone but himself.
Tim Campbell is perfect as the narration. He is Ren and captures our charmingly narcissistic hero wonderfully. All the characters are flawed and yet I cannot help but find them charming in their own unique way.
At just around six hours the cases Ren tackles for the Lucidites and the overall arc development of the series are nicely paced and positively addictive. I cannot wait to dive into the next audio.
Reading this book contributed to these challenges:
I am always inclined towards books which can make me laugh, And even though it is funny it sounds like it still has a nice and good plot as well. I love me some time travel. I need to check out this series!
This does sound really good. I haven’t read many time travel books.

The Dream Traveler series sounds very interesting! I hadn’t heard of it before. The cover is definitely an eye-catcher. Reminds me a bit of Archie from Riverdale.
I don’t think I’ve listened to a Tim Campbell narration before, but the sample sounds fantastic.
Thank you for putting this book on my radar!
I’m glad that you enjoyed this book! I think I’ve only read one book featuring a time traveller. I also love books that explore gray characters. When they’re not clearly distinguishable as good or bad, their motivations and actions are often a lot more interesting. Lovely review :))

i love flawed characters and finding out whether or not they can redeem themselves
I’ll add book 1 to my wishlist if it’s not done yet!
Ooh a time traveler story. I like the sound of this.
