Publisher's Summary

Morgan used to be a pretty normal guy. He went to college by day and played online games by night, leading his guild into new conquests - until he got hit by a car and a dude wearing a wet suit appeared in front of him. The man offered him a new chance at life in a world he had created, a world with similar rules to the games Morgan loved to play. There is the promise of great rewards and power, he says, if Morgan manages to complete the Tower of Power. Stupid name, I know.  

Morgan didn't usually trust strangers who seem to have god complexes, but he was in a pinch. There's a crazy-looking dude saying he is technically not a god on one end of the tunnel and a blinding light on the other end - and he was really not digging the light.   

So he accepted the offer from the surfer god-not-god.  

Getting dropped into a strange new world with no idea what the rules are was not something Morgan was a fan of; and in this strange world, it seems like everything is out to eat his face. It was a good thing, then, that he stumbled onto two half-elf twins willing to help him get the hang of this strange new world.   

Now, all he needs to do is survive long enough to reach this tower.

worth the credit.

definitely worth the credit. only complaint is that for the story arc it borrowed elements form other stories. i.e The Land series and Two Week Curse.

lacks the umph and intrigue.

I can't help but feel the story was written simply because they could. All of the characters lack significant development and depth. including the MC.

makes it difficult to relate to any of the decisions being made throughout the story since the whole story fills like it you are just getting the surface. also it feels like alot of content has been removed.

hate when books do that. not sure if they are purposefully trying to reduce listen times. which is a bad goal. longer books are better.

A bit of a rough start but now my favorite!

I have to admit that I almost returned this books a few chapters in but so glad I did not. This is now my all time favorite audio book. The first few chapters where rough and like Stephen R. Donaldson's Lord Foul's Bane's Thomas Covenant character I did not like this stories protagonist at first. But Mr. Kal adds a great supporting cast and fortunately you get to see the main character mature. I have been an avid reader, table top game player, and MMO fan for a very long time and have ready many books from this new LitRPG genre. Frankly a lot of them leave me wanting and feeling cheated but something about this story and the way it plays out really grabbed hold of me and won't let go. I have listened to this story 6 times now and have already purchased the kindle version of the next book in the series and pre ordered the audible edition. The author's approach to game theory and how magic might work has been very interesting as well as refreshing.
Now to be fair and honest a few areas do draw some fair criticism but I as can see improvement as this story arc develops. I am so enthused about this author that I am even checking out his original sci fi works and hope to see more from him. The Narrator does a fantastic job as well and was an excellent choice for this story.

slow start.

Good start to the series. There was some nice character growth. Most people seemed very naive.

Teenagers, Why

OMG
Why is the main character a 22 year old teenager. The story revolves around teenage innocence and stupidity. I could not finish it.

Avoid at all costs

I almost threw my phone listening to this. terrible waste of time. If I produced something like this is any line of work I have ever been in I would have been fired.

If you are a fan of RPG at all save yourself and skip it.

Guild Master

Truly a good story.
I found the “game mechanics” a bit lacking, but not that it took away from the story, but actually reinforced the “game” world.

I liked how most of the stuff played out, but I did find the MC to be a bit of a dullard here and there.
(How do you not use one side of your abilities except to do one measly thing.)
(I had a thousand ideas running through my head, and was just waiting for him to do one of them and realize he’s capable of being OP, but NO....)

Overall though, even with my want to critique the MC, the book was a true 5 star start to a series, and I hope it continues as good or better.
