I do very much enjoy this book and I will continue till the end of this series.

This book is very well written, plot pace is good, it has excellent world building without over doing it, I do like and relate to the MC, also most sub characters are great as well.

The authors take on this second world so to
speak is horrifying at times, it’s definitely not your normal litrpg at times, spiders.

The only issue I have is the narrators performance with yelling, it makes me cringe every time he does it, you will know what I mean when you listen to this book. Its a minor issue and in no way takes away from this book. Besides that minor issue this Narrator is excellent

Very good addition to the series

Whats there to say? If you’ve made it this far in the series you obviously like it. If by chance you are having second thoughts about adding this book to your library then ill help ya out.

This book has great world building as expected from Sansbury, very good story pace, lots of resolved plots points we were all waiting for, and I must say Sansbury did a masterful job at tying up loose ends. There was more than a few emotional moments, more impactful then all the previous books. And such a great ending, with a nice opening to continue the story. I must say Sansbury did a great job with not milking this series, he ended it good and left an opening for a whole new storyline.

Excellent start to the series!!!

First off id like to address a common complaint with this book. Anger or rather the MC’s anger. Look, anger is a critical emotion, and its a great emotion if expressed/utilized for the right situation, and the MC’s anger issues are definitely justified considering what has happened to the human population and of course all the danger and not so smart humans he has to deal with. I would just be as angry as the MC if I had to deal with all that. I cant speak on the Mc’s previous anger issues pre world collapse as I don't care, and doesn’t drive the main plot of this book.

This first book is well written, great world building, great monster’s, good magic system, great character development, and I really like the shop system. Superb plot and plot pacing. There is a lot of hard grit and tuff times as well which I do like, its nice to mix it up with darker litrpg’s. Lots of interesting characters the MC interacts with as well. So far this book ranks up there with Chaos Seeds, not quite as good but still great.

If you can understand and don't mind the MC’s anger at times you will enjoy this book.

Undecided if to continue.

This book has the potential to become a good series, but I do have a few issues which reflects my star rating of this book. I would have rated this as a 2 star overall but R.C Brays ability to bring the MC to life won me over, he really helps you become invested in the MC, if not for R.C Bray I would have returned this book. That being said I feel the MC was not written correctly for this story, its tough to imagine the type of person the MC is, ending up in the position he finds himself in near the end of this book, the MC’s personality doesn’t entirely match with the plot, it just doesn’t feel like a good fit. I do like the MC, just not entirely in the narrative presented midway and at the ending of this book.

The main reason I'm not sure about this series is the over use of the MC narrating his early beginnings. The MC pretty much leads you through his early life, which is a shame because I would have liked to discover the MC’s early days on my own, I don't feel it necessary to have someone hold my hand through this entire book and explain everything to me. Hopefully the next book is not written like this, I would prefer to discover the story on my own.

The author does a great job at world building/character development and the pacing of this book is good as well. The MC is hard/gritty and rough as well which I like for this type of story . There is some decent humour as well. The plot is just okay but has the potential to become good.

Be forewarned there is a very graphic sex scene in this book that will definitely offend some people, I was not offended due to the plot of this book, very hard life middle age setting. There is lots of strong language which also fits the plot of this book. There is lots of talk about sex and prostitution which fits the gritty roughness of the MC.

Overall I do recommend this book based on the potential it has, I will probably continue this series unless the author keeps his current path of narrative. If the next book is written like this one I will promptly return the book and forget about this series.

Why aren’t you reading this book!!!!

You may ask yourself why am I writing this when I titled this review Why aren’t you reading this book!!!! I don’t actually know, anyhoo

First off Id like to take this time to point out that Craig Alanson is a royal Butthead. That cliffhanger in the last book was epic, and things don’t immediately resolved in this book either......grrrrrr

Really at this point I don’t know why you have not purchased this book and started listening.

Oh and we all know this will be another homerun in the series. Go skippy the Meh

This is a very enjoyable series, this series is similar to his other titles in the way of space/aliens/underdog mc/fighting aliens/impossible odds. That being said this is a wonderful series with great depth in both world and characters.

My only minor concern with this author is that he seems to have quite a few titles going at once, and if you are like me you want an end to a story at some point , especially if you are very invested in the series. That being said this author seems very dedicated to his work. Anyways, this series so far is quite good. Id recommend this series and Undying Mercenaries as well, I will be getting his Star Force series next.

Originally returned this book!

Good, very good

I had originally returned this book for reasons currently unknown to me because unfortunately I'm currently writing this review after 6 months finishing the entire series, not entirely sure why I returned this book but I'm glad I decided to give it another go.

First off Nick Podehl, this guy is the best narrator on audible

This series is amazing, masterful world building, interesting and organized character development, great plot development and story pacing, little to no story repetition, great use of various person’s perspectives and various character perspectives.

It amazing how this author tells many stories throughout this series and masterfully brings them all together while still keeping the world its self and the main plot interesting and organized.

Great start to a series

There are mixed reviews on this author and this series, some say they love it some say they hate it, others say he rewrites new series based on his past series, all points of views are true to some extent.

Likes:
- BV is highly skilled at world building, and is great with story pacing, he switches between persons views quite good without overusing any persons point of view.
- I do like his MC’s attitude and humour
- Hes not afraid to include sex in his books, which in my opinion should not hidden in the closet so to speak, its a natural part of life and should be celebrated
- Very good plot and delivery
- Good narration
- Great character casting
- Love the underdog feeling

Yes this series does have some similarities to undying, Aliens/space/win against an ultimate enemy/a small group of people overcoming overwhelming odds. Look this series is a completely different story then undying, come to think of it, most scifi books ive read by different authors generally include Aliens/war/a MC and his sidekicks/unbeatable odds/etc.....

I highly recommend this series, if you like BV then you wont regret getting into this series

Meh!! Its just okay

Before you waste your time reading this review, I will make one suggestion to you. Go and listen the the Arisen series, its by far the best zombie series ive listened too, and the Legendary R.C Bray is the narrator.


Look this author seems like he’s had some success, Im not sure how the quality of his others stories are and Im not sure ill bother seeing for myself.

I will say there is just enough in this first book to keep me interested enough to finish it, Im about halfway through. Will not continue this series

Dislikes:
- The narrator sounds like a mix between Ray Romano and Kermit the frog
- So far Im not overly enjoying the way the story has been written, to much 1st person.
- I don’t find the humour overly enjoyable, its forced and overdone, trying too hard to be witty
- I definitely don’t buy into the virus was started because of the H1N1 vaccine. Nope
- It appears that this author has retitled some of his books from others series, definitely appears to be a greasy cash grab.
- The sarcasm is very forced and falls short.

Likes:
- Not many
- The story is somewhat interesting
- When I finish this book
- That’s about it

Real crappy Novella!!! Not negative just my own opinion

In my own opinion this book was an attempt to make his fans happy for missing previously promised release dates for this book. In fact I believe the previous times Aleron promised a release date he hadn’t even started on book 8, this book feels as if he slammed it together over a drunk weekend. Granted the guy is probably busy and I’m sure crazy fans wanting the next book in the series can be overwhelming. Side note before I get into this abomination of a book. Some have mentioned Aleron did this book as a money grab! It’s possible but I doubt it, anyways!!!

This book has little to no character or plot development. This book is a bloody disaster, I mean come on you Sod Aleron, you are better than this. Look heres a comparison for this so called book 8 which is actually a real bad Novella, if you are or were a gamer—-> Do you remember the magic days of Diablo 2 and the much better Lords of Destruction? Yeah those were great days. Now fast forward to 2012, yep the travesty that became Diablo 3 and all the shat that was. Well thats how book 8 is from the rest of the series, I mean how do you go from a great book like 7 to this crap?? How Aleron??

Go ahead and buy this book like I did, even know there are thousands of reviews similar to the one I just wrote. But you know what, we have the option to return book for a full refund which is what I’m going to do right After I hit that submit button.

This is the second book Ive returned out of over 250 books I currently own. I mean crap, the other book I returned was an unknown author that seemed to have a 50IQ and probably couldn’t write out a Chinese food menu. That should about sum up how bad this book is, oh and if yer wondering about my grammar? Haha I don’t really care, I aint got no development editor like Aleron does.

Don’t forget to give me a 5 star review wherever you do that... bye
