    Description

    Jack Kross only wanted to play the game. Now he’s fighting for his life.
     

    When a mysterious hacker takes control of Hundred Kingdoms, Jack is trapped inside the fantasy VR world along with millions of other players. But Jack is in a worse predicament. He’s cornered in the very tower the terrorists have taken as their base; the only free player left within its walls. Even worse, in the real world, his body lies in a sweltering room with no hope of relief.
     

    Playing the profession-based Scavenger class, and at a low level, Jack’s prospects of fighting his way out are next to impossible. Crafting gear, traps, and weapons, allying with a deadly dungeon master and an AI he can’t fully trust, Jack is in a race against time to save not just himself but the millions of players held hostage.
     

    Battle Spire is a meeting of World of Warcraft and Die Hard, using crunchy LitRPG mechanics with a heavy focus on crafting. Listeners can expect to find in depth item and spell descriptions, along with stat tables and profession recipes.
     

    Note: strong language is used throughout.

    Good story with excellent narration with one flaw.

    I will start by saying the narrator is very good and portrays a good realism to the story. Having a scavenger as a class is great and what happens is a nice surprise. However, there is one thing in this book which I couldn’t get past and could only get half way through. The MC (main character) makes me not want to read more. This main character is a jerk, cocky, and whiny all at the same time. I don’t mind character flaws but dang is this character just unlikable. This might have been a portrayal of a gamer and as far as personality is not far off. I guess my problem is that there is no virtue to the character. Only out for themselves. I actually was really enjoying the world around him... just not him and I sadly had to stop reading. A Litrpg hinges on a couple elements. World building, MC, and adversity.

    Not So Crafty

    First of all, Soundbooth Theater always makes an awesome production. It's easy to give a book a few extra stars just due to their performance, but I just can't do that in this case.

    I just couldn't get into this book as I thought should, and for the life of me I couldn't put my finger on it at first. It was a lot of little things, and then I realized the problem. It's the game mechanics. They don't feel consistent, and sometimes goes against the rules of the game as previously laid out. For instance, the MC makes an attack that uses all of his 1K mana, and seconds later he expends 700 extra mana, without any explanation as to where it came from. When you're reading a book, you have to suspend your beliefs and delve into this new fantasy setting and accept the new. But when the rules of the universe aren't consistent, you start to see little holes in the tapestry of the story. Most of the time you can ignore them, but sometimes there are one too many and you think to yourself 'I don't believe this could happen'. Once you hit that point, you start looking at things harder. The more I listened, the more items didn't seem to make sense, and that just killed the story for me.

    If you are able to ignore all of that, you might have a better listen than I did, but all that I can give this is an OK review score.

    Feeling Crafty

    This is a fun read with excellent writing and great narration. Mr. Miller takes a self-centered individual and moves him towards "other-focused," outlook on life. The great thing is he did it in a fun and exciting way. I was disappointed book 2 was not already available when I finished Battle Spire.

    Classic GameLit!!!

    Great story and Narration!

    Jack is a collage student. Jack sneaks into a seedy part of town to get his game fix without his family finding out. Unfortunatly his plans get highjacked when terrorists take over the game and disable the logout feature. What else can go wrong, and what can Jack do about it?

    The Soundbooth crew do a great job with the narration!

    The the MC starts off whiny, he show great personal development and growth throughout the book.

    I loved this book, and cant wait for more from this author!

    An interesting story well told

    As with most of these stories the casual introduction of a fully scalable artificial general intelligence is slightly jarring. However this story has a new take on the trope. The main character’s naïveté regarding certain potential outcomes is also a little jarring considering how far this is set in the future and that he seems to have had a good education.

    Brilliant storytelling!

    Everything about this was enjoyable!

    I really hope for a sequel, an entire series even!

    Craters don't get enough love and that's always been my favorite part of games! I would play the Scavenger class in an instant!

    Amazing book!

    This book is so awesome! I love books like this so much. Every game that i play usually has some form of crafting and this book makes me want to find even more games like that and play them. I sincerely hope that the second book comes out soon! I can’t wait to see what adventures Jack and Ellie find. Keep up the awesome work!!

    Diehard meets Home Alone

    One word: Daayumm!
    Somebody entered the litrpg arena with their A-game stuff. The crunch could be better at some spots. Too WOW-ey for my taste, but an amazing all round story nonetheless. Must read for any fan of non harem power fantasy litrpgs.
    The main character is an insufferable prick, so at least I can relate to him very well and all the side characters are extremely believable within their roles.

    All in all, a very close 8/10 for me. I hope the sequel doesn't suffer too much from the ending.
