Description

Jack is violently pulled into a game-like universe and dumped into a seaside town on the brink of destruction. When the people of Blackmoor Cove begin to ask about his combat role, Jack discovers his odd Hero Class and finds that parts of his game interface are riddled with exposed coding errors. 

He quickly learns that the only way the town can grow and push back the unknown substance threatening to consume it is if brave Heroes venture into an infinitely high, ever-changing tower, kill bizarre monsters for their valuable equipment drops, and then deposit those items into a special chest. 

As Jack struggles to level up and help save the people he has grown to care for, he learns the true nature of this simulated world and his destiny.... But can he overcome his reckless nature and become the leader this strange world needs? 

This “crunchy” GameLIT/LitRPG story contains: item-based game mechanics, town building, countless unique monsters, boss fights, and cheaty special abilities.

Tower-climbing, town-building dream game

I love Azure Dreams, An old, obscure JPRG from PS1 that involved turning a dying town into a metropolis while slowly expanding the power you can take with you into a randomized tower. This book reminds me immensely of that, in all the best ways, and makes me want to listen to roughly 6 more books in the series right now. As an audio-only reader for years, I am supremely tempted to go grab the Kindle version of the next book...but SBT did a truly excellent job performing this book. One of my favorite performances I've heard from the cast, alongside a well-orchestrated use of music and sound effects that added to the book in quiet and smart ways, without distracting from the narration.

The only con I can think of is the gear lists get a bit long towards the end...it was hard to follow all the values, and I barely cared- the story is excellent even with minimal attention paid to the crunch (genre term for the hard numbers in LitRPG). I imagine if I was reading it, the numbers and values would be around the sweet spot for frequency and info- and tables are easily glanced over and absorbed from the page-, but it did remind me of my wish that LitRPGs be edited separately for their audiobook performances. Overall, a minor quibble on a fun, clever book that left me wanting the next book ASAP!

Everything gamelit should be....

...except the end. Really awesome premise. Great characters. Interesting and satisfying progression. Then the story just ended, absolutely zero resolution. It’s not even really a cliff hanger, the author just decided he was done I guess. I’ll get the next one, if there is one, but I really hope there’s a little more thought given to the overall narrative of each individual book. They should stand on their own.

Refreshing take on GameLit!

Great story and Narration!

While mapping a mine for silver deposits, Jack stumbles across some lost (alien?) technology and manages to get transported into a Gameworld on the verge of collapse. Now he has the opportunity to raid a dudgeon, save a town, and win the heart of a strangely enchanting maiden. If only he could get his glitches under control...

I loved this one!

I can't wait for the next book to come out!!!

Completely Relevant

When it was past 2am and I was still listening to this audible book because I simply MUST hear what's going to happen next and how it's going to end, I know I've managed to find a winner. It's pretty rare to find a litrpg that hits all the right cylinders for me (good hero, great story, interesting characters, good style and pacing, decent humor, good world building, good action, etc). I was totally engaged with this book the whole way through. The character skills are not too complicated and deep and hence don't require minutes by the author to tell to the listener the stats and skills. I like a good balance and this is just right in that regard. Soundbooth also does an excellent job with the voices and effects (never overdoing the effects).

My only gripes are that the book ends without a major milestone discussed throughout the book being hit, and there are some elements of the combat system that are non consistent (such as why the skills learned in the arena don't translate to actual skills in his list of skills). But those are very minor things compared with the story as a whole so can't really take away a star for that.

Overall this is near perfect litrpg in my view, and if you are a fan of litrpgs you really should grab this one. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in the series!

Great performance, added to the story.

Never have I enjoyed a narration team as much as I enjoy soundbooth theater. I am probably one of many who has listened to everything you guys put out, but I try to stay above the water with content.

This was a great book. The characters showed development, in an easy to understand way.

Excellent!

An excellent book with an interesting premise, great characters and an engaging plot! The thing that characters and non-characters is is the ability to truly interact with them. The NPC’s here have real feelings and hopes whether or not they are flesh and blood, this is what makes us care. I am truly invested and can’t wait to see more of the story.
The narration is excellent also the actors are fantastic and always draw me deeper into the story!

Surprisingly good

A different take on Litrpg. While I can’t say its the best i have listened to it’s also not the worst. Good enough to keep my attention. At the end of the book I find myself feeling indifferent to the characters. There’s not enough depth to to either love or hate the MC.

Great mix of LitRPG with a tad of romance

Okay don’t get spooked, there’s not too much romance, but there is some and it’s well done. Especially when compared to regular romance novels because those can have tons on eye roll moments. As for the litRPG portion, it’s quite creative, the main element is a randomized tower climb that can have weird themed floors that are just entertaining to come across. The first third is a tad slow do to the author having to set up the world. But as soon as you get past that the pacing is great! So make sure to get atleast halfway through the book, really I highly recommend this. P.S. the narrators are great! One of the best narrations out there, I have 0 complaints. Can’t wait to listen to the rest of this, consider me a fan!

good book

*spoiler*



I like how the climax of the book actually was not the boss but to run away and play it smart when s*** hit the fan.

The only bad part in the book was when they started skipping floors and the date in the arcade.

Oh yeah don’t turn it in to a harm and you got your self a damn good series with ability to reach many reader.
