Publisher's Summary

When Pyresouls released, it was a brutal new virtual reality game with a twist: The first to beat the game would win billions of dollars.

But after the Burgon Beast couldn’t be defeated, Pyresouls turned very real and unleashed an apocalypse of undead, monsters, and a system of levels and stats onto the world. For many years since, Jacob Windsor has fought with sword and shield to survive Post-Collapse Earth where only ancient, guilt-soaked weaponry can harm the monsters from Pyresouls.

While defending his bunker with some of the last refugees of humanity, yet another friend loses his life to secure one final hope: an enigmatic artifact capable of sending one person through time.

In a cruel twist of fate, Jacob becomes humanity’s best chance for survival. He takes the plunge into the past of the terrifying, fractured realm of Pyresouls, where every player is out for blood and the monsters are more vicious than anything on Post-Collapse Earth. Armed with knowledge of game mechanics, secret loot, and enemy weaknesses, along with well-honed swordsmanship from years of battle, Jacob has every possible advantage against the competition. But the choices he makes have long-reaching ripple effects on the timeline.

Can Jacob beat the clock while grinding out Levels and manage to avert the apocalypse, or will his every action darken the timeline even further?

This post-apocalyptic gamelit series includes battle, levelling, and gear-enhancing mechanics inspired by the Dark Souls games.

Dark in a good way

This is a uniquely dark VR litrpg with real stake unlike other books in its genre.

It is very dark very very dark and that is fantastic I like to see some over the darker books from time to time.

The narrator nailed the performance in all aspects not all narrator can pull off voice from the opposite sex but the was really good.

I would highly recommend this for the fans of darker fantasy stories.

Okay wow This is truly was a dark fantasy story and all the best possible

I enjoyed this book yes it's very much like Dark Souls with a character does that mean a lot and it does really work well this type of story The Monsters just sound terrifying and fantastic at the End of This Book it is dark in the best title way though which really left me watching more and when I say the ending is dark that is 100 percent true I did not see the end coming and it's well worthless

Not a great book

The narrator was good and that’s pretty much most of what is good.

The dark souls video games were definitely the inspiration for this series and that would be okay if this series was actually good.

I’m not a fan of the author constantly explaining simple game mechanics over and over again, the world building feels flat and this series ends up being predictable, the MC is pretty lame imo, the pace is slow and honestly I don’t care about any character at all, sure it’s dark as some reviews have mentioned unfortunately this series is just boring, there’s more bad but I can’t be bothered to list more.

The title details make this series sounds very interesting and unfortunately it is not.
