Description

What would you give to be a dragon rider?

Before being conscripted to fight in the Total War, Private Hector Park had a shattered family, a collection of old video games, and a promising career as a motorcycle stuntman. Now, he is dying from a virus threatening humankind with extinction. He has three days to live.

When Hector’s brother contacts him after years of hostile silence, Hector goes to try and make peace. But his brother has an offer even more unbelievable than reconciliation: the chance to cheat death by joining him in Archemi, a full-immersion fantasy VR-RPG video game. 

Determined to forge a life worth living, Hector undergoes the experimental upload process and chooses the difficult path of the Dragon Knight. To achieve his dream, he must prove himself worthy of imprinting a dragon, a being with whom he will share a telepathic bond more intimate than any human relationship.

But at what cost?

Join Hector on his first steps toward mastering the skies in Dragon Seed, the first audiobook in the Archemi Online LitRPG series!

A good read

I enjoyed how the mc actually got a ingame personal history, it was a nice change that you don't see to often in litrpgs of this style.

Minor spoilers ahead



Also, I've noticed some comments talk about how the book is contradictory, and in a few points maybe a little, but in one of the main points brought up where he left the army just to join another right after.... actually read the circumstances.. though he did not join the army by choice, he later says that he had fought regardless. For two tours. And when he did leave, it was because as a quarantined soldier it was the only way to see his family before he died. And when he did go to join ingame it wasn't because he suddenly felt a calling to be a soldier again, it was for the sole reason of getting a dragon mount.

full of contradictions

The MC is pretty weak willed, right from the start he says he wants his freedom and to be on his own, even going so far as to choose a race who take penalties for joining others. first thing he does is join into another army and party. said he hated the army but joins one again. stupid book did not even bother finishing.

good story, well told

This story is exactly what it says it is. Dragons, knights, game mechanics, a hard magic system, what is not to love. The readers bring out the different characters with a really good, but not overdone, mixed media performance. By mixed media I mean some music or background sound effects at specific moments in the story (e.g. rain sounds during a flash back).

More than most litrpg I've read this book establishes the different characters' backgrounds and world without lengthy boring expose. It is a hard balance to strike but this story establishes background through dialogue and that works really well for it.

Overall I liked it and am looking forward to reading the next in the series.

The Gold Standard for LitRPG

This book.. No this production is probably the best if not close to the best experience I have had in the LitRPG genre. From the voice acting to the added effects and music everything is on point. I enjoyed myself thoroughly and am eagerly waiting for more. wondefully done.

Do yourself a favor and GET IT!

I'll be honest. When I was reading the summary of the book, I was not expecting much out of it. I figured it would be just another LITRPG where some guy gets stuck in a game. I guess the dragon riding thing hasn't been done yet, so why not?

Well, I can definitely say this book is AMAZING! There's so many references to games and little jokes I can relate to. It really let me know the author is a gamer like myself. But more than that, the story is superbly written and demands you come back for more. The protagonist is likable and one can easily relate to his circumstances and understand his actions. As a matter of fact, all the characters were superbly done. Big round of applause for the author.

It definitely doesn't hurt that this book was brought to life by the cast of Soundbooth Theater. Sound effects. Multiple cast members providing their amazing skills. Music. It is ALL there. It was a treat to listen to.

The only downside to this book is I wish there was more, but I mean that's how it always is when you have a good book in your hand right? Do yourself a favor and GET. THIS. BOOK!

New Dispair

Short of the long: I was loving it until the plot and any attempt at immersion sort of disintegrated.

Long of the short:
Great narration, interesting world. But, my issue is with the author's goal, namely to continually pitch the reader into despair. Such a theme is sort of expected at the start of this sort of book, and at first the attempts at despair seemed natural. However, somewhere near the end of the book, in what felt like an attempt to compound despair upon despair, a whole truck load of coincidences start to pile up. In fact there are so many coincidences that the author has to bend and twist the situations so that things can progress. I had to just stop somewhere around CH40 because of a complete loss of cohesion.

How does the story end? Who knows? I do not.

Best performance I've heard.

I wishI could give six stars for the performance. Between the music and multiple voice actors, they went the extra mile and it really paid off.

The sound effects, music, and voices are vety top notch and along with an engaging and unique story, it's been an enjoyable experience. Can't wait for the next book.

Wonderful!

Really amazing book, everything from characters and storyline. Music, sound effects. Also I loved that it had rpg elements, skills and levels. Most import I felt like I'm there.
Narrators was amazing. Both. This book is really worth it. You'll never want it to end.
This one and few more books worth your money:
The Land
Dungeon Born
