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.

This series has been a great surprise!

The LITRPG genre is for the large part, a hit and miss sub segment of the sci-fi/fantasy genre. On many occasions you pick up a LITRPG audio book that has a mediocre writing and a just plain horrible MC.

The Dragon Rider series or Archemi Online Chronicles has been a lot of fun and deeper than I would have thought. The MC builds well fleshed out relationships with conflict points and resolutions. The game elements are really a secondary concern as the story takes center stage.

The performance by Justin, Jeff and Laurie are great and the whole audio side of the book is fantastic.

I honestly can't wait to get the latest book on Audible when it comes out.

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.

heading required.

adding music and stuff is fine... but it should be limited on how loud it gets... muffled voices... I shouldn't actually struggle to hear what's being said.

overall I was pleased throughout.

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!

just wonderful

I normally don't give reviews, but I figured that this would be a good time to actually give one. this was by far one of the best litrpg books that I've read in a while. I definitely give this a 10 out of 10, I just kind of wish that Jeff Hayes narrated the entire male cast, instead of just some of them. I definitely look forward to reading the next one, and any other books from this author

Story was okay, I kinda wished for no theme music

Decent story to get through the day, but the theme music and sfx is really cringe for me. I understand that the high quality narration game is going up but please leave it out as it throws me out of my own theater of mind.

Some good ideas, but really creepy "Incel" MC.

I'll keep this short. I liked the gameworld, having it as a "Alpha" made it interesting, with unexpected glitches etc. Overall, its a pretty dark theme, with some interesting characters. However......................

Mild Spoilers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


................the MC is completely unbelievable, Irl he is a "Stunt rider, soldier, walk into any bar and I know I am the most bad ass, blah blah" And that he is a virgin!!!! WTH? Then he loses his virginity in game and some of his inner thoughts around women are just sad and creepy.

I wont be getting book 2 (he would probably do something inappropriate with his dragon).

well worth the credit

even with the gaming stuff added in it was still fun
The only downside was sound booths issue with volume, I listen to it driving and when you have to turn it way up to hear someone whispering for dramatic effect, it sucks.... and their were a few times but even turning it up I could not understand the background whispers...
While I enjoy soundbooth theater, I did not enjoy that type of annoyance. this is not the first book but they haven't done this way... fortunately I was enjoying the book enough that I could skip the little spots that I could not hear and still keep up

too much unecessary language

The story would be a great story if the author could avoid using the F word so frequently. the storyline itself was very engaging minus the language it would be an awesome story.

Ehh

An okay story...but there is way too much cursing. I did like the narrators, but the dragon part of the story didn't really start until the very end.
