Publisher's Summary

From Wall Street Journal best-selling author Aleron Kong comes Awakening, book one of God's Eye, the long-awaited second series of the Labyrinth Universe!

Discover a unique new world seen from the perspective of a newly born god in a breathtaking saga of divine proportions.

Telos is a world at the center of a Universe. A bright jewel wrapped in a Lattice of realities. It is a world that gods and demons call home at the beginning of a new age. Remy is a newly risen deity, struggling to survive in a Battle Royale where the consequences are worse than death and last longer than damnation.

He will find that he cannot live with his tribe of worshippers. Their strength is his, and his is theirs. Other tribes want nothing more than to feast upon their flesh and consume their power. It is a deadly race of technology and power, faith and corruption, of commoners and legends.

Gods of ancient pantheons and demons of forbidden nightmares compete in a timeless game where the stakes are the souls of every living being. These old forces will come to fear a newly risen god.

His name will become a curse on their lips. His name will be a chant in the mouths of the faithful. His name will be carved in time.

Zero Fell, Zero Fell, ZERO FELL! 

My friends, this book is five years in the making. Set in the same Universe as The Land, I hope you enjoy this new world with new magics. New friends to cheer for and new enemies to hate.

As always, I wish you a wonderful life!

Peace, love, and the perfect margarita,
Aleron Kong

Very Very Slow Story Progression

I’m all for world building and whatnot, but 6 and a half hours in and our MC hasn’t done anything himself.. I understand that world building takes time, but somehow seconds are dragged out into what feels like hours, our Mc jumped out of a tree, it felt like it took 30+ minutes to finally get to the ground with all the explanations that were going on throughout the fall, breaking any sense of immersion I had. I have to drop it here, I enjoy a good slow burn, but this is like watching paint dry..

Disappointed but still good

I have read all of the chaos seeds series and I expected more character dynamic in this series, it just consisted of him monologing to himself, there are almost no other characters that come up in this story. The system that he created is pretty cool and I love that but everything just felt dry because of the main character.

Generally a good book.

I was very skeptical about picking up this book I was a huge fan of The Land, and while it wasn't the next in the serious I decided to give it a shot.

The pacing seems off, we quickly get thrown into things to have the book slow down and examine the environment or other creatures in great detail. Some of this could have been left out, I don't really think the reader needs to know how aroused.. things... get.

The action is well thought out and detailed. Sometimes too detailed. Heh. Plink.

It suffers from a lot of repetition. We cover some details, then cover them again but slightly different. It could be the words were arranged in a different order. This adds to the length without a real purpose.

You definitely get the sense, like in The Land, that the world is so much larger then what's around them. I hope we get to see more of it.

Vocal performance was well done and enjoyable. The voices are mostly different from one another, although more then once I think a voice changed.. or came off as male but then became female later.

Also. Did you really have to include *THAT* after the last Book? Really?!

A new exiting adventure!

I have been listening and reading Aleron Kong's books from the very beginning. He is an amazingly creative author and I love his mistvillage series! Patrick Rothfuss use to be my favorite author but Aleron has moved to my number 1# spot! This book is very interesting and has a very cool take on the litrpg genre. I very much so enjoyed the audio book and will definitely be picking up every title as soon as they come out. His story telling is always so captivating that I can actually see myself in the world watching 👀. His descriptive story telling is top notch and the detail and care he puts in really show. I'm excited for more of both this series and the mistvillage ! keep making amazing series ill be listening for sure !!!


I hope you branch out even further and try something completely different so interested to see what other stories you can tell. not just in the litrpg genre.

Awsome

The world doesn’t need another doctor. The world needs Aleron to really bear down and focus on writing another book. Thanks for the story I’m a huge fan!

tiresome

The long scene in the tree. Yawn. Narrator's voices are cartoonish. All the amazing achievements feel cheap. The battles are poorly drawn. What happened to you, Aleron? I still listen to it like crack, but after a while you just start to hate it. There comes a time when the author takes readers for granted and breaks the bond with them.

Aleron should stop..

Please can you stop filling your books with hours of urination and bowl movements. If a book is 24 hours or 40h long but the story only progresses a few days.. Its infuriating. You have such an amazing world and story just get Brandon sanderson to help you write a proper book out of it.

Only book I have ever returned

The author has really dropped off and seriously needs to hire an editor. Not sure if he has alpha beta readers but if he does he needs to find someone out of his cliche. The book was written to target teen boys not sure if that was the intent of the book or not. The book claims to be dark but just found it immature.

Can't wait for more!

Having an opportunity to be part of the early listener group for this book, I was absolutely thrilled with the way the audio turned out for this book. Luke Daniels is a rockstar as usual and the author turned out one of his best books yet.

I was nervous when he announced he was doing a new series, I like many others of his fans simply wanted more of the land. this book did not disappoint however, It is much darker than his previous novels this book kept me engaged the entire time and I cannot wait for more.

a high schoolers essay

The amount of repetition in here is kind of insane, it reminds me of my high school days where you had to turn 3 pages worth of content into 5 pages. A decent editor could have cut 1/3 of this book just on that alone.

The Mc in this is just an edge lord version of the lands Mc. He doesn't give a fudge, and will tell you that over and over and over. Also he's a man of action and does things with gusto, but that is just what is written, and not done. He will ponder every foot step, every action, and sit you down to give you a werthers original and tell you unsolicited life advice.

The author has moved on from his controversial poop chapter of his previous book, and switched to a whole chapter on peeing on an enemy. Truly inspiring. Maybe in the next novel we can have a vomit chapter.

I will not return this audiobook, just so that this review stays up for all time. Hard pass on this book.

Deliciously Violent and Brutal

God’s Eye have already become one of my new favorite series. There is an honest realism in the brutality of a world filled with gods. Do not read this book if you are squeamish or have an aversion to violence. If you have a secret bloodlust that you need to feed then this is definitely a book for you. The intensity starts from the very beginning and rarely gives you a breather. God’s Eye isn’t just filled with violence and gore though. I found myself constantly laughing at humor very much like my own. Aleron has expanded on an already amazing universe with this new series. I didn’t think it was possible but he has created something that is as good as, if not better than, The Land. I am eagerly waiting for more. And as always Luke Daniels was phenomenal in his performance and narration. I was an early listener for this book

Another masterpiece!

God's Eye is a spectacular start to a new series! It immediately sucks you in and never slows down. It's fast paced and such a fun read! I was lucky to be an Early Listener for God's Eye. Luke Daniels does an amazing job bringing the characters to life. He captures the character's voices and the overall flavor of the story flawlessly. I absolutely recommend, and eagerly look forward to the next installment.

Love it.

I am an advanced audio listener.

Aleron and Luke made an amazing team!

Alerons writing did not disappoint in this new series. Gods eye is in the view of a God. we get a taste of things in a way I have never seen before, all the while the details are brought to life by Luke.
