    Description

    The game real heroes are dying to play....

    When an invitation to try a cutting-edge game promising darkly sensual adventure drops in Abram's lap, it's an offer he can't refuse. After all, as an agoraphobe who never leaves his apartment, his social life is defined by, and limited to, games.

    Yet an interesting premise quickly shows its dark side as his mind is filled with memories of unspeakable torment, forcing him to rely on his meta-knowledge just to stay sane. The game is like nothing he's ever played: It has no tutorial, no HUD, no levels, no experience system, no respawns, and no mercy.

    Surviving against all expectation, battered by memories of a woman he can't help but hate, Abram's only hope for survival is given to him by a chance encounter with Angrboda, the legendary mother of Fenrir. In her arms, he learns that only through sensual exchange can he advance, and with her support he sets his sights on power, rulership, and a harem of mythical, or murderous, women.

    Celestine is a world of monsters. The strong rule the weak, trust is in short supply, and the only real options for the true survivor are to lay it or slay it. Thank goodness it's only a game.

    Warning: This book does not pan to waving curtains and fade to black. Those uninterested or under the age of 18 are strongly warned of explicit content.

    Forsaken is fine if a bit clunky.

    To start off, I'm reviewing this purely on the basis of Cebelius's other books and not the works of other writers. I would also highly recommend you listen/read cebelius's other work "the celestine chronicles" before purchasing this one.

    Lets start off with discussing the lead character Abram is NOT like Terry Mack. Abram is much more child like, a literal man child in many circumstances. He is fundamentally a much less stable much more sheltered and broken character. He is one part a caricature of a computer anime nerd, one part conniving like a loki-esq character, and just a dash of batman's psychotic joker. There are moments of cringe and moments where i could see the more interesting character he might become if he were to grow up mentally/emotionally.

    The overall plot is fairly flat that is propped up by much more interesting characters and locations, though i admit the overall setting is a bit more grimdark than your typical celestine story.

    It is at this point I feel i should warn the reader this isn't your typical harem fantasy. I also feel I should warn readers of the celestine chronicles that the "romantic encounters" this time around are much MUCH more bizarre, bordering on nightmare fuel at times.

    The narrators do a great job not only in the performance of new characters but also in their interpretation of established character voices, with the exception of a certain dragons voice near the end.

    Overall I think this was a fine attempt to expand on the world of celestine in terms of overall story, a different leading character, and litrpg elements. However, not all of these changes will sit well with everyone and I hope Cebelius buffs out some of the rougher elements in the next book.

    MC is an idiot and a man child

    MC is an idiotic man child. Could not even finish the book due to the way his personality flop back and forth.

    Got Annoyed Often

    Alright, I LOVE the adventures on Celestine, but this new guy is just ..to unlikeable for me. There's some parts that I'm ok with him, but most times he's a bit to far gone. There's a point where I almost stopped the book after he says "it's only a game" for the 47th time.

    If its your thing itll be a fun listen.

    So to start, if you can handle cebelius charecter, specifically the main charecters, youll probably enjoy the book, a few cringy moments, but its somethingnive come to expect.

    I do enjoy the suprise for the main charecter if you piece it together threw out the book, but over all my favorite part of the story and always will be for cebelius books is the side characters, i enjoy the main girl for this one, and most of the surounding cast, mc still kinda repugnant, but thats sort of the point.

    As for the naration staff i have one and only one complaint and that is Tess Irondale is the only voice for Euryale. Nothing the voice actors can do about it ive just herd her do that charecter for like 5 books now amd thats the voice stuck in my head.

    love this world

    Changing man characters is exactly what this world needed, he is no Terry Mack and that's a good thing. While I have been enthralled on Terry's adventures I find myself having more fun with this book. This is someone flawed and relatable, we all know Abram and seeing the world through his lens is refreshing.

    cannot wait for the next one.

    Sequel series/side story

    I got a real kick out of this story when it was revealed the Abram was the thing Eurayle found in Mack’s storyline. Just how it’s not going to be a evil run through of the last story

    More of this please

    Okay normally I’m not a fan of harem novels and I especially don’t like litRPG elements. However Cebelius creatively and skillfully works these into a fascinating story with a protagonist who is not at all like your typical hero. Mostly because he’s not a hero nor has any interest in being one. It’s incredibly refreshing to find myself genuinely wondering what an MC is going to do. The characters are extremely likeable which contrasts very well with the very VERY dark themes in this book. It’s certainly not for everyone but if you liked Mask of the Template or want a divergence from the typical while in familiar territory give this a shot. The next book can’t come soon enough. If the story carries itself but if it didn’t the narrators would. Rebecca woods and Daneil winiewski are a fantastic duo and put so much life into this production.
