Publisher's Summary

With regenerative abilities, a badass tail and the potential to evolve his body, how could Art resist choosing a lizard man as his avatar? All’s well until he accidentally joins forces with an acid-spitting, enemy-consuming shadow-bound grub, causing his light-bound guild members turn against him, and a deadly fire mage to wage a vendetta against him. 

Venturing through enchanted forests, into mage enclaves atop ice-capped mountains, through thief-ridden sewers and into ancient temples, Art must defeat the Legendary Beasts and claim their gems of power before his enemies can stop him. 

With the odds stacked against him, it’s time for Art to undergo some dangerous and unique training. 

It’s time for him to evolve!

What a book

This book was amazing and shift from the norm while keep the essence of LitRPG novels, the author I did over state the very aspects which was nice. The narrator was fantastic as ever not to mention the singing Travis missed his calling.

There’s a lot of racism

This book is really cool on how the world works in the system they use the only issue I have with it is the racism. I’ve read books that had racism in it but it’s a different story when literally everyone that looks different from you is racist towards you. I didn’t like the side character because she’s way too greedy and he doesn’t seem to care that she’s way too greedy.To give you example when they finally decide to team up after she robbed him after he saved her. They were talking about the cut of the loot where she’s getting 90% of everything they gane. It’s just some thing about the characters in the story that just rub me the wrong way.

mok's review

The story is an excellent concept. The execution by the author is rather poor. The main character comes off as mentally damaged or retarded. The main character also comes off as extremely arrogant and stuck up in "his" field of expertise. The other characters are likewise one-dimensional. The main character ends up taking a second character role in "his" own story. The main character within the first few chapters immediately switches to the "female" Thief . The story is written as though the author is an SJW with gender pronoun dysphoria. Many of the "he" and "hers" have been replaced with them and they. I do not find this to be a very good story overall.

Baldree’s Brilliance

From the first five minutes I was sucked into the story with the excellent character voices Mr. Baldree produces. I felt like I could actually see them, simply from how detailed and varied he made each character sound. I was immersed from the beginning until the end. I will definitely be listening to EVERY audiobook I can find from this outstanding narrator!

Fantastic - bugtastic

This was a brilliant, different kind of story. It was really well written and the narration by Travis Baldree was fantastic - he was full of character and brought the book to life for me. Plus, he had to sing a lot, which was brilliant (and the songs added to the already cool world of beasts and animalistic players). I really loved the lizard MC and the fact that he and his bug beast companion weren't OP. They had to work as a team to come up with clever tactics, rather than just running in and slashing. They also evolve, which changed the games and battles regularly and was really unique. I also appreciate that the MC and their teammate (a thief with a giant spider) were a bit different to the norm. They were clever and even kind at times, their reactions and emotions felt genuine, and their dynamic worked well. The only niggle for me is I'd like even more of the teammate, Nux, as she's so cool and has so much potential! I was glad to see a well developed female character. Maybe we'll find out more about her in the future? Can't wait for book 2!

great story with bonded pets

the book was great and used many aspects that are not used in other litrpg. I lived how there was bonded pets and how the main character was an unusual race. the book also suprised me on how it ended as well.

Really cool game concept

Really cool game world. I like that every character gets a beast and that is a main part of the game. The game world is very well thought out and seems like it would be a legitimately fun game. The characters are well established through their interaction in the book. Travis Baldree does an awesome job with his narration. That guy can sing, too!

Great novel and narration!

I truly enjoyed this novel. Art's use of a non-traditional species for his character, as well as his choice of companion, was an interesting deviation for this genre. The author did a wonderful job of character development, for both the character inside the game and outside the game, while his world-building did a good job of providing information while also raiding questions that forwarded the story. I look forward the next book in the series, to see what happens to both our main characters as well as the antagonists (both major and minor) set up in this novel. If you enjoy litrpg novels, you will not be disappointed. If you enjoy fantasy, but have never read litrpg novels, give this one a shot; you will not be disappointed. I will also add that Travis Baldree did a wonderful job with his narration. His voice was engaging and made it easy for me to keep my focus on the novel (which I sometimes struggle with on audio books). For transparency: I was provided a free copy of this audio book for a true and accurate review of it.
