    Description

    A dazzling world of wonder and power. Gifts from the game gods for every person. The perfect magic for every user.

    Seth, a popular streamer, can’t wait to see what this new world has in store. It’s sure to be a blast for a guy who always plays a caster, and his friends are going to be right in the thick of it with him! The game boasts algorithms designed to read biometrics and brain patterns to find the perfect magical fit for the user - magic so personalized that no two casters will ever be the same. In fact, the game company is so sure they will always be right that you can’t remake your character.

    The unthinkable happened. The safeties and the guarantees failed, not just once but apparently only to them. The company has informed them that the system is infallible: There is nothing they will do. Players must use what they are given, so Seth and his team have no other choice - they need to grind it out and evolve their gifts in time to stream.

    Brilliant narration can't save bad dialogue

    This story has some of the cringiest, most melodramatic characters I've ever heard. This isn't an issue with the narrators - they're brilliant and work well together - but the plot and dialogue in general.

    What ultimately made me drop the story was when the protagonist was arrested for obviously defending himself, then when it was proven he had, that wasn't enough to immediately release him without reprimand. If that wasn't bad enough, the protagonist took no umbrage to this and was even subservient and kowtowing. Cartoon character.

    Another example. The protagonist has a weird fascination and passion for colours. I can't really explain how oddly this comes off, you just have to experience it. He goes off on several tangents about their magnificence a couple of times and I was just... baffled.

    Another. The dreaded childhood friend romance not romance. The girl is blatantly in love with him, he has no idea and says multiple times he sees her as a little sister. If you're into that kind of bottom of the barrel drama, great for you. You'll probably like this book. If not, and if the idea of a 'fight' coming about between them because the protagonist wouldn't disclose a personal story another friend told him to her, then you're likely in my boat.

    Finally, a grown-ass woman gets upset and is on the verge of tears because she gets given a magic affinity for something she has no idea how to train. In a video game.

    Ultimately, these don't read as real people. Everyone is overly dramatic and dialogue between them feels forced at best, unbearably cringe at worst. The narrators do the best they can, but what started off as just odd at the beginning of the book just just progressively worse and unbelievable as the story went on.

    I didn't finish it and am returning it.

    Poor writing meets worse narration

    Overall the story drags along with one dimensional character interpersonal relationship. This is a poor rendition of stone haven league meets grey stone Chronicles and lions quest. I can not expeess actually how much the narration detracts from the storyline especially the combat scenes. This is a very slice of life litrpg with sketchy poetry, lazy romance, and a nearly incoherent storyline. Everything is sketch.

    odd book

    normally a main character will have some interesting trade scale like enchanting, Alchemy or item crafting... but for the main character he decides he wants to learn how to make dyes that don't do anything other than color no special stats just color... and I do not understand the drama it seems a bit forced. I would rate this as one but I actually like the narrator so is a 3, but only because of the narrator.

    Surprisingly Great! Give It A Shot!

    I've got nothing really bad to say about this book, I only wish it was a bit longer. With that out of the way lets list off what I thought made this pretty great:

    1. The narration or in this case voice acting is top notch. Rebecca Woods and Gabriel Michael did an amazing job with this. Normally I find multiple narrators a little disjointed and annoying but the seamless transition between male and female voices was amazing.

    2. The story dodges a lot of the typical LitRPG tropes I find annoying but retains enough that gamers would enjoy. No they're not stuck in the game, no base building, characters growth isn't instantaneous and op. There is stats (but not every other page worth) and some MMO lingo that pops up now and then. What is great is that the story flows in and out of the game, allowing you to see different sides of the characters.

    3. Characters for the most part are pretty flushed out, they have problems and interests besides "the next dungeon" or "the big bad guy" which I find refreshing. The relationships between characters surprised me more than I thought, and it helps that the MC isn't a blundering idiot but not a super genius.

    If you are looking for a fun adventure in the style of a LitRPG with some interesting characters and some amazing narration, i'd recommend you give it a chance.

    Loved this book

    I am not a gamer and had no idea of what to expect.

    Not to worry as this book was not JUST about gaming.

    The story was extremely clever and had a constant flow of excitement.

    Each of the characters were engaging and remained mysterious.

    Gabriel and Rebecca MADE this book feel realistic and was perfectly acted so excellent choice in narrators!!!!

    Looking forward to the next book and more Rebecca and Gabriel!

    Everything is Hamfisted and Akward

    The premise is cool, not overly original, but litrpg is my jam so I gave it a shot. The actual writing is lacking, mainly it's the dialogue and character actions; people don't speak like humans but over the top caricatures, they don't react when people are being rude or obnoxious, however they get mad when people are joking, then one character even freaks out over a vaguely ominous message from an anonymous account. The message had no threat, no reason for anyone to do more than be curious, of course she runs to the mc and he holds to calm her down... I wanted to like this but it's just divorced from reality and thats a shame cause the world it's self seems cool.

    spoiler alert ahead . . . I quit at chapter seven and I had already figured out that the magic is real and the game company are wizards or something but I had suspicious back in like chapter 2 very blatant foreshadowing that no one seems to pick up on, I just wished the characters were you know intelligent, reasoning, thinking creatures and not plot devices.

    Great book

    I just recently finished this book just because the Axe Druid series is one of my favorite series. I was not disappointed and had a lot of fun reading this book and have already started book 2.

    Great Start to a New Series

    This book was a fun adventure combining escalating danger, character development, and game stats in a comfortable way. I am definitely looking forward to starting the next book.
