Description

Jack Kross only wanted to play the game. Now he’s fighting for his life.
 

When a mysterious hacker takes control of Hundred Kingdoms, Jack is trapped inside the fantasy VR world along with millions of other players. But Jack is in a worse predicament. He’s cornered in the very tower the terrorists have taken as their base; the only free player left within its walls. Even worse, in the real world, his body lies in a sweltering room with no hope of relief.
 

Playing the profession-based Scavenger class, and at a low level, Jack’s prospects of fighting his way out are next to impossible. Crafting gear, traps, and weapons, allying with a deadly dungeon master and an AI he can’t fully trust, Jack is in a race against time to save not just himself but the millions of players held hostage.
 

Battle Spire is a meeting of World of Warcraft and Die Hard, using crunchy LitRPG mechanics with a heavy focus on crafting. Listeners can expect to find in depth item and spell descriptions, along with stat tables and profession recipes.
 

Note: strong language is used throughout.

A 2nd

A great story with great character development. Good narrator. Leaving me craving for a 2nd book. That could be the small adventures of our protagonists or a full fletched large event like this.

Overall great, keep up the good work

Feeling Crafty

This is a fun read with excellent writing and great narration. Mr. Miller takes a self-centered individual and moves him towards "other-focused," outlook on life. The great thing is he did it in a fun and exciting way. I was disappointed book 2 was not already available when I finished Battle Spire.

Not So Crafty

First of all, Soundbooth Theater always makes an awesome production. It's easy to give a book a few extra stars just due to their performance, but I just can't do that in this case.

I just couldn't get into this book as I thought should, and for the life of me I couldn't put my finger on it at first. It was a lot of little things, and then I realized the problem. It's the game mechanics. They don't feel consistent, and sometimes goes against the rules of the game as previously laid out. For instance, the MC makes an attack that uses all of his 1K mana, and seconds later he expends 700 extra mana, without any explanation as to where it came from. When you're reading a book, you have to suspend your beliefs and delve into this new fantasy setting and accept the new. But when the rules of the universe aren't consistent, you start to see little holes in the tapestry of the story. Most of the time you can ignore them, but sometimes there are one too many and you think to yourself 'I don't believe this could happen'. Once you hit that point, you start looking at things harder. The more I listened, the more items didn't seem to make sense, and that just killed the story for me.

If you are able to ignore all of that, you might have a better listen than I did, but all that I can give this is an OK review score.

A Surprise and Treat

A hidden jewel for now at least. I missed out on the reddit giveaway but bought it anyway and boy am I glad I did. The action is fantastically well done and the character went in a direction I wasn’t expecting. He managed to come up with many exploits, items and abilities that were realistic to an RPG yet interesting and new. There were a few moments when the plot was pushed in a particular direction that stretched my suspension of belief in order to shoehorn in more drama but the redeeming qualities of the rest of the story far outweighed this. I’m personally looking forward to how this author develops in the future because I can see him having a AAA release in the near future if he continues to hone his craft. It also has great voice acting and sound design.

Simply Enthralling

I was skeptical at first not being a gamer myself, but found myself drawn in by the sample offered on audible.
I found myself lost in the story each time I listened! It was wonderfully performed with different voices and sound effects. The unique plot was also a plus!

Crafty Die Hard LitRPG

This starts out ok, with an interesting premise, but the MC is kind of annoying. You’ll want to stick with it to see it get better. Excellent use of AI.

Possibly my favorite AI companion to date

I love character-driven stories, and I really liked this book for that reason. Everyone had their own motivation that was relatable. I also have read some books in which the AI companion was just there or not compelling, and that was not the case in this book. It also helped that SoundBooth did such an awesome job with the voices and sounds. They brought their A game, and it made a huge difference in making the characters compelling especially Annie's rendition of Elle. I plan to listen again.

Excellent

I had a hard time at the beginning of the book. The character just annoyed me to no end. It was after he got trapped in the spire that this book really takes off. I highly recommend it and would enjoy revisiting this world again.
