Publisher's Summary

Val had returned from his latest tour of duty scarred in body and soul. Barely able to walk and drugged to the gills for pain, he thought his killing days were finally behind him. He couldn't have been more wrong. 

Endless Online, a hyper futuristic game where players could truly live another life...

Val loved the idea of starting over in virtual reality. But when someone he cares about turns up missing after chasing that same dream, Val quickly learns that Endless is no simple game. 

And if Val can't figure out the dark secrets behind this realm of wizards, warriors, and intergalactic conquest, then it's game over. For everyone...

A Decent Book

There's some pros and cons to this book. The idea and world is really well made, the MCs pov and feelings are made clear. The only thing that interrupted the immersion was the abrupt changes in flashbacks... And sometimes long winded overtly fluffy descriptions that take away from what's happening in the moment. I guess there's a tempo to story telling and the story misses several times, which ends up losing sight of the current situation or event. I love the voice acting here, to a point that annoying characters are actually really annoying with their whining. I think the female and male voice actors did a good job.

Story drags

Good concept, good characters, but the dialogue and descriptions are very repetitive and overly dramatic. Feels like a greasy way to make your story longer.

A nice change from the average Lit RPG

not the average lit RPG but it was surprisingly good. there's a lot more character development than game aspects but sometimes in RPG books there's just like too much statuses and stuff I really enjoyed this one it was a nice change.

Insert 16 Adjectives Here!

If you like knowing that the glass of water was cool, wet, refreshing, shimmering, quivering from the vibrations of holding it, in the hands of a potential individual prepared and ready to quench their unquenchable and ridiculous thirst... this book is for you. If you like stories to tell themselves, with a narrator actually working their magic to do so, find another book. The author clearly wanted to describe everything in such detail, the narrator was left with no choice but to read the book that feels like an assignment in middle school - where the word count had to be higher, and the only way was to simply add on more adjectives. Ugh. I tried so hard, almost finished the book. I got infuriated after more than 8 hours in, and simply gave up.

Free form rpg

I like the book. It felt a bit wordy a points, too much description on what I felt were minor details that could have been lightly touched on instead of such intricate detail. But since this is the first book in the series, I thought the author was just trying to build up the foundation. The MC is very introspective insussing out past times in his life and feelings about himself vs. this new world he's in and that bogged the story down a bit for me.

Pretty good start

Although it seems like he forgot all about the friend that he wanted to save the story is pretty good. Game elements on a different world. I would have a better description of how the spells and abilities worked but it seems the mc doesn't even know so we learn along with him I guess. Overall a good story.

more MC's life experience than lit rpg

it's not bad, but the pace keeps being broken by character development in a fashion that felt like it took away from the story more, in some times, then it gave insight into the character. it has a lot of potential for a 2nd book but if the story keeps jumping to the past tense I'm probably going to just pass on this series. Update, the 2nd book in the series does make this a good read as the story picks up pace much better and is very enjoyable.

Yeah... uhhhhh.....no

Like...totally man Over half- way through and no game has even started. Dark and depressing. Overuse of certain words, even in the same sentence. Shimmering, strange, confused. This is like listening to someone totally wasted, and without any education, trying to explain quantum physics. I would’ve gone further to see where it goes, but the repetition of the same adjectives over and over became unbearable. Try another book.

needs work

The writing style is a little sloppy and inconsistent. But if you're bored this book is Not a total waste Of your time. My biggest complaint about this book is how inconsistent it is. it's like the author forgot what's going on in his own story.

The Metaphors and Descriptions are out of control,

I really wanted to like the story, but every other sentence being some crazy metaphor describing some useless fact was crazy. There is also a issue with how descriptive it gets about everything you almost lose whats even going on.

Good but annoying

the story was enjoyable but at times the forced eloquence on the wording kept rating on my nerves also the excessive focus on mysticism suddenly after focusing on Tech and lasers was really really jarring

interesting story

Narrator was excellent, and the idea of the story is nifty. there are a lot of run-ons, and reiterations. Not terrible, but without the run-ons and reiterations this book would probably be 4 hours long. That's all I got, and hope it helps. I might metaphorically bite the bullet, and get the next book. If it doesn't have the same problems, it'll probably be exceptionally good.

Fun world, cool story, good MC but Gregor must die

*Mild Spoilers, though no specifics, contains some general things that happen* Its a fun world a pretty cool story and great take on litrpg. Like the MC a lot, dark and tortured soul which is the type of character I like. Really awesome world it plays in as well. I think you will really enjoy this story so long as you can look past a fe horrible personality traits of the crew. A character named Gregor is literally one of the least likely ass****s you will ever meet in a story that is supposed to be one of the good guys. I know a lot of this is a narrative tool of the author but its just really bad and very unpleasant to have to deal with. He constantly puts the MC down for reasons that are 95% irrational as the MC saves his and his the rest of his allies lives over and over. It's really gross and disturbing. The whole crew in fact seems to give him about 10% of the credit he deserves as he saves them. Constantly complaining and berating him for the methods he uses to save their lives. I mean literally no doubt they would have died 100% of the time, several times over without him. He pretty much single-handedly saves them, with them contributing nothing at all to their own survival and then they follow that by berating him for his methods and dehumanizing him, it's nuts! Awful stuff, and Gregor might be the worst person of all time. To me, the way they act is just lazy story telling, as no real people would ever act the way they do after being saved and it must just be a way for the author to victimize and create strive for the MC. Their combination of personality traits jsut don't make sense and don't really exist. Outside of that however, if you can stand being around Gregor, its a really fun romp. I must prob sound like I don't like the book but I actually did. I just hate the Gregor character and hope he is killed in the next books so he doesn't drive me insane with his ridiculous irrational abuse of the MC. So good story, I love the world, good litrpg system and I like the MC a lot but some of the side characters, most of all Gregor are very poorly written, which makes them pretty terribly unlikeable and incredibly frustrating people.
