Publisher's Summary

Feeling unwanted and still reeling from his encounter in the Garden of Clarity, Trent Embra leaves the city to find out what else the world has to offer.

Making his own decisions for the first time, an adrift Trent latches onto the quest in his status telling him to survive alone on the wilds for two weeks. With only the doctrine of Sergeant Cullen to guide him, and a sword to depend on, Trent puts his back to Al’drossford and heads south to find out how different life as an adventurer is compared to the one he has been leading.

I Needed This

I've been bouncing around mediocre audiobooks for a few weeks. This one blew them all out of the park. It really smacks. I hope the next one's keep coming!

Narrator just gets worse over time

Terrible voice training, character's voices change from book to book, just terrible. If the story wasn't so good I'd have put down the book a while ago.

Decent read

Cullen just might be my favorite character in this series, the relationship he has with Trent makes me smile. I kinda wish he would join the team instead of heading back to the Duke

Idiotic choices

The story is very slow with no clear direction. Why is Trent working so hard to get stronger, is there a villain or some kinda threat? All the conflicts come off like weak side quests so I'm wondering when we'll see anything of real substance. The world is decent with enjoyable mechanics and lore. Problem is the author is not great at writing characters and without an over arching narrative this just feels pointless sometimes.

phenomenal

each book in this series is a masterpiece and this one was no different. Incredible world building, characters that you fall in love with within a chapter or two and the narration is fantastic.

anyone who loves a good fantasy adventure needs to listen to or read this series

In love with this series!!!

From start to finish, I loved this installment.
The entire story doesn't just read like a love letter to the genre of litrpg, but does it so well. I'm getting ready to press on to the next book in the series but it's a little bittersweet because it's the last one that's out so far and I can't listen to the fast enough

My only problem is waiting for the next book. Please speed the process but not at the expense of the story. Great work

awesome

Really good book. to much detail 18 hours is alot but not for jt Wright he finds just the way to make it way drawn out then it is, also doesn't trent see that they are just using him lol all they're doing is using him to get stronger and him being the kid he is just goes along with it. ( where is brambles and thorns jt Wright)

A BIT too slow

Starts great slows down way too much in middle with every inch of a trial then pick back up towards the end
Good series otherwise
