Publisher's Summary

After accepting the fact that he will never know his old reality again, Gunnar looks forward toward building a new life inside Eden's Gate.

It's time to form a guild, gather resources, and earn the acceptance of the Edgewood inhabitants.

If only things were that easy....

The dark elves aren't thrilled about having humans in Edgewood, the mine isn't vacant, and you can't form a guild without at least a few guild mates.

Will Gunnar pursue Adeelee? Is Rachel still out there somewhere? And who is Jax exactly? Could he really be a Sparrow?

Excellent sequel with a major cliffhanger

It was more of the first but with even more polish and some fantastic world building. Gunner wasn't checking his stat screen nearly as much as the original, thank God, but it is still a bit annoying hearing the narrator read everything out. Perhaps if he only read the important stays relative to the current situation it would be more bearable.

The book ended with quite a cliffhanger that made me immediately buy book 3. Good read.

More robotic than the NPC's

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story isn't compelling and only covers a few days, the main character struggles with a few moral decisions, but doesn't act on the single paragraph of guilt he feels

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Extremely predictable with no emotional appeal, doesn't help that the main character has forgotten his reason for forming his guild

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator delivers lines with a constant monotone.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Eden's Gate: The Sparrow?

The earlier scenes with Jax and the speculation around him

Any additional comments?

I can tell the author is a huge fan of the drizz't books because the main character is heavily influenced, which I find irritating

I have never waited so long for the plot to start

The book is hour of nothing important than a plot that would take 5 minutes is drawn out for 30 minutes. If you are looking to be disappointed and board than buy this book.

Good book but struggled

So I struggled a bit with this books. It just did not excite me as much as the first one did. I’m going to give the third one a try. I’ll let you know how that goes

author has no clue

authors only throwing in litrpg references because it adds window dressing and allows him to pad the story, and use a hashtag. Gives no explanation to what any skills are stats actually do for the characters other than allow them to cast different spells. Loves repetition of useless statistics, but never actually uses any of the statistics in the story, or shows how skills help in combat. most characters are still cardboard cutouts, the story is almost non-existent until the last one third of the book, which he conveniently finds the Jax character while looking for another one of these sparrows.

Descends into smut

I don’t want infantile adolescent behavior rewarded in any reality. This book does just that.

Nothing Happens

Any additional comments?

Nothing of note or importance happens. Sure characters do things, but there is no overarching reason other than these vague future goals. But when you are trying to hold a reader's interest with promises about how strong the MC is going to be years from now but after two books only 14 days have passed, at least I feel my interest waning. Why do I care that he grabbed 3 pieces of hardtack and a handful of grass when the only purpose is so that he can eat it. Sure the MC has to eat, but why do I have to know his supply list for every meal? Get on to something of note.
The characters are all boring and have no value to them besides the princess. She is probably the only character that I would actually care about if she died, but then I would just stop reading.
In barely over one week the MC had already forgotten that he has a girlfriend in the real world and consigned himself to get a replacement and his actions are becoming increasingly immature. I actually feel bad for elf princess as the plot demands that she slowly fall for him even though her upbringing and rank should in reality make him pitiably repugnant in her eyes. Maybe that's what the author thinks is going on, but there isn't any hint that she is falling for him out of pity, more so honest infatuation.

Vocabulary is still slightly off in this book, with the author using words like "unleash my grip" instead of "release my grip". I will forgive this if English isn't the author's first language, but it doesn't remove the fact that these are still writing errors that should have been found by the editor. Also it seems that the author never actually read the final version of the book out loud as there are a few scene continuity issues: characters saying "again" when there was never a first time or narrative exposition repeating itself.

Overall there was just nothing to this book. Thinking hard, there was not a single scene that I actually enjoyed or though was well written in its entirety. It feels like this book only exists as an exposition dump to push aside trailing ends from the first book and give away the plot for the third, which I don't think I will be reading.

Dont bother its a waste of time

This book has a lot of potential, but it was written by someone who it’s evident doesn’t know anything about RPG games. The (MC) Main Character is indecisive and weak, you tell me that after 10 days if you are a serious gamer you don’t know how to power level. Seriously trash. This book is nothing like Chaos Seeds by Aleron Kong or any other RPG. This is written for someone who doesn’t know anything about RPG. Don’t waste your money or credit on it.

getting better and better

The second book in the series is quite good and makes marked improvements in flow over the first. I really enjoy this series.
