Description

The Earth has changed. War is now fought in an alien virtual reality - the Game - where many of the players are anything but human.

Now part of the Black Rose guild, Alan heads to the Academy to level up and get stronger. He hopes to make allies and learn skills to win the battles to come. But with everyone pursuing their own agendas, what can one gamer do in a universe he still doesn't fully understand?

A letdown

The character makes the same mistakes repeatedly. That's infuriating at best. The main character makes clearly bad decisions, decisions he is either advised against or knows from previous experiences to be poor decisions. He is inconsistent and acts in a chaotic or erratic manner. Jumping around insane, cowardly, stupid, whiney, and confident (when the risks are far worse and the reasoning so shallow you couldn't scoop any up with a bottle to hold onto). There is character growth and some game advancement. Except when its inconvenient for the author; that's when the frustrating main character is going to infuriate you, by committing the above sins, forgetting logic, reason, or anything he's learned to date.

The rest of story is at least somewhat interesting with some surprising twists. When the character isn't being written to go off the rails, he's more interesting and develops somewhat stably with some nice surprises built into the game environment and systems. There is a story here to be enjoyed, but the author's main character's erratic behavior means I still have no idea what is going on with him. I can't get a better baseline because the author uses his erratic behavior as a cop out for development in ways, that I feel he couldn't justify otherwise.

I still found some enjoyment in the book, but its flaws were almost unbearable at times. That said it did have great moments, but the transition towards being more self reliant is still a ways off. At least eve will sometimes criticize and berate Alan.

took awhile to get into

at first I thought the book series was similar to listening to somebody play World of Warcraft... But eventually I got into it and I'm looking forward to a lot more!

OUTSTANDING story line!!

I really do like this story line. Lots of Twist and turns and it doesn't bog down while keeping up the speed needed to keep one in the story.
The main character some times seems like and idiot but he does have help from others...

MC needs to communicate

The story is a fun adventure to listen to with plenty of action and politics to keep it exciting. I continued this series because the other characters and world development was interesting and promised exciting development. The MC is such a loner that we don't get a chance to delve into any of the other characters stories. MC still let's himself be blind sided and focuses only one aspect and ignore everything else. When he does decides to make a decision it's weak or like a impulsive child. His AIs are more entertaining then him.

Great Performance and Exciting Story

I went through both books in just under two days. I didn’t want to stop listening to it. Nick Podehl’s performance was on point, as usual. He brings the characters to life and Cosimo’s story kept my attention consistently. It’s a good litrpg for those interested. I’m looking forward to the next.

Great book

All around really good book. However the MC has zero people skills and refuses to learn.

this is hands down on of the best LitRPG novels. the voice acting is on par with the writing and comes together to form an amazing epic.

It was great, just make it like longer next time

This was a very fun listen. Nick is also a great reader. It’s just a little to small. Been reading some others that are just as good but 3 to 4 times longer. This does not tale away from the great story. It just a bang for buck thing:)

Nice installment into the LiT-RPG world

Fun series! Book 2 was as good if not as fun as the first! Can’t wait for the third!
