Gary Karkofsky, aka Merciless the supervillain without mercy, is presently the most disliked supervillain in the world. Superheroes don't want to just throw him in jail, they want to deliver an epic beat down for ending their golden age by killing Merciful, the superhero with mercy. His fellow supervillains aren't much better, either jealous of his success or loathing him for all the other baddies he's killed. Also, what's up with his wife, Mandy? She's been acting extra strange since getting her soul back (long story). That's when Gary receives an invitation to the Primal Fighting Tournament - an interdimensional contest involving all the universe's greatest warriors. The prize? A wish with no limitations. Gary can finally get on that world domination thing he's been putting off.
Unfortunately, Gary is competing against good and evil way above his league. Not only Gabrielle Anders, aka Ultragoddess, his former fiancée, but Entropicus, the Space God of Evil. Thankfully, Gary has allies from unexpected sources including Jane Doe, the protagonist of I was a Teenage Weredeer, G from Agent G, and Cassius Mass from Lucifer's Star.

C.T. Phipps has taken Merciless (Gary Karkofsky) and dropped him on an Island to fight against superheroes and supervillains from other worlds. Integrating characters from his other books, Jane Doe and Agent G and Cassius Mass, they come together with Merciless to fight in the Primal Fighting Tournament to protect the existence of the multi-universe. Now Gary must determine the reason behind the tournament and what Entropicus, the Space God of Evil, stands to gain. What’s the real reason behind the tournament and what wish should Gary ask for?
I enjoyed the combining of characters from a variety of Phipps books. Phipps masterfully integrated the characters into an interesting and action-packed book. Blending the characters into one story was innovative and exciting. The dialog was well done and realistic.
Jeffrey Kafer’s performance is magnificent! As a narrator, he moves the story along with his voice and enthusiasm. His cadence is perfect and he brings the book to life. Love to hear him perform, he has skills that draw the listener in and keeps them engaged in the story.
There were no issues with the audio quality or production of the book. It was well done, no issues at all.
