Description

Diving into a revolutionary new video game, Marcus and his friends escape a stagnant society, entering into a world that defies their wildest imaginations. But from the moment that he logs in, Marcus finds himself separated from his friends and thrown into a remote village under attack by a horde of goblins.

Forced into battle, Marcus rallies the beleaguered villagers and, with their help, manages to drive off the invading creatures. With the village in ruins and their supplies spoiled, the survivors desperately turn to Marcus for help in rebuilding the village.

Realizing that this game is nothing like he's ever played before, Marcus is swept up into a whirlwind of adventure as he struggles to defend his new home, quickly finding that marauding goblins are the least of his problems.

Luke Daniels and a great LITRPG; enough said

There are many LITRPG stories coming out seemingly every day, some good some not so good, “Ascend Online,” narrated by Luke Daniels is a great entertaining experience. My personal favorite in this genre has been “The way of the Shaman,” series and I rate the first book in this new series just as high, maybe even higher given the narrator. I hope the next book is just as good; can’t wait.

A humble hero story with cool action!

I love evolving hero stories where power ups or new abilities are tempered with ever more challenging situations! this book delivers that with entertaining action and new introductions that kept my attention throughout. even taking small 15 min bites of the story was enjoyable!

books it reminds me of:
ready player one
we are Bob: the bobiverse
codex alera series by Jim butcher
I'm off to be the wizard
the Chronicles of Jonathan tibbs

The author found the right narrator

Would you consider the audio edition of Ascend Online to be better than the print version?

Most authors have to rely on the readers sense of humor to get their joke across, but this narrator knocked those parts out of the park. I found myself laughing from this book more than any other.

What did you like best about this story?

This book is better than your average Litrpg audiobook. While the first part of the book is great, it picks up a lot around 35 percent through. You will notice the difference

Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Once, i found this to be the best one.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

That would be spoiling

Any additional comments?

I didn't want to waste another credit one a lit novel, considering how often the genre tends to stack to the same formula, but this book strays far enough from the normal path to make it worth while.

Fresh to death

Don't get me wrong, the VR world is starting to become saturated and that's the only reason I was hesitant upon getting this one. Ripped through this in 4 days it was that good, beginning to end, I could not put it down. This is a must for your collection, highly recommended

Excellent LitRPG!

I won't go into the details of the Book, but as someone who has almost 24 months of logged listening time on Audible, this book not only has excellent content by Luke Daniels (who is a fantastic narrator) but it also has the hours to create the background and build the story.. it is a great listen. if your like me and you look to reviews before spending the credit then trust me, this is a worth while listen.
I was not given this book for free, I purchased it, and I did not have to write this review. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Interesting Concept but...

There were a lot of really good parts to this story, the narration was great - but - after awhile it just felt like instead of reading a novel I was just reading melee descriptions. And, while that’s ok on and off for a bit, near the end during the boss battles it seemed to go on forever. I hope in the next book, the author gets back to story more.

Again, really good concept, narration is brilliant, spotty writing. If you like gaming or fantasy, it’s worth a go. I’d also recommend the Play to Live franchise (which I like a bit better).

LitRPG like it SHOULD be written!

Instead of endless number crunching to act as filler, like so many books in the genre do, this book is a masterpiece. It COULD have been chopped into three small novels, because each act was so compelling in its own right, but instead the author gives you a satisfying complete story that has all the meat you want in a first-in-the-series novel.

Most LitRPG is very episodic, and the first book usually feels like a pilot episode. This, however, is the LitRPG full-length cinematic release type of title that makes you know that you'll be enjoying the next installment the first day of its release.

The characters were likable, the main character has drives and motivations that are logical and relatable, the narrator is brilliant, and the world is both realistic and compelling.

I truly cannot recemend this title enough, and look forward to the next in the series.

A new standard. A breath of fresh air.

Seriously I love the LITrpg genre, but the many common flaws and tropes cause me to enjoy the first few books and then be unable to stand it.
One thing that is prevalent is the singularity of protagonists. One player, one central person with no friends or is socially inept and is the perfect fit for the video game world.
NOT HERE MY FRIENDS!!!
Unlike so many stereotypes in the genre not only is the main character a fairly average life like person, he BRINGS HIS FRIENDS WITH HIM. If you are reading this review trust me. The difference this makes is unbelievable. Suddenly things feel more life like, it doesn't seem like the writing feeds into tropes.

I honest to god am praying this series stays true to its promise because this book set a new type of standard for genre. I haven't been this excited for a series since Aleron Kongs "the land"

Gute Story, sehr guter Sprecher

Das Positive:
* Der Sprecher, Luke Daniels, ist einfach großartig.
* Die litRPG-Elemente sind handwerklich gut; es macht Spaß, diesem VMMORPG zuzuhören.
* Die Story ist einigermaßen spannend.
* Die Charaktere sind nicht so flach wie in anderen litRPGs.

Das Negative:
* Die Action ist manchmal langweilig.
* Die Charaktere sind etwas blass.

Geschmackssache:
* Für meinen Geschmack wird zu wenig von der realen Welt erzählt, aus der die Charaktere stammen. Dadurch, dass sie nie über diese reden, fühlt sich das Ganze sehr unecht an.
* Die letzten litRPGs, die ich gehört habe, krankten alle daran, dass sie etwas frauenfeindlich/sexistisch waren. Ascend Online ist da eine wohltuende Ausnahme. Nicht, dass es besonders interessante Frauencharaktere hat, aber es reduziert Frauen immerhin nicht bloß zu Sexpüppchen.

Fazit:
Eines der besseren litRPGs mit einem der besten Sprecher überhaupt.
