    Description

    Corporate flameout Ned Altimer dreams of leaving his world behind. So, when Earthblood Online splashes onto the VRMMO scene, he dives in and never looks back.

    His advantages are twofold: exclusive access to the game’s three-day Head Start period, and a ridiculously handsome talking axe named Frank who has knowledge of the game’s deepest secrets...if the magnificent Frank ever feels like sharing them.

    But those advantages also make Ned a target. Once the Head Start period ends, his fellow players will stop at nothing to rip that suave, violent, yet disarmingly charismatic axe right out of his hands.

    In 72 hours, the greatest manhunt in gaming history is set to begin.

    It’s gonna be a lot of fun.

    Yeah!!!!

    Anybody who’s a fan of the genre knows there are some TRASH A** BOOKS out there. Finding one worth listening to is rare, and finding one stands out is... Damn near impossible. This one stood out, so much so towards the end I was looking on kindle to see if there was a book 2. If you like litrpgs, you won’t be disappointed

    Great new author! Looking forward to the next book

    I really enjoyed the book. I've taken a break from new authors after a truly abysmal string of bad books but this one caught my interest. Travis Baldree does an amazing job and was a big part in why I gave this book a listen.

    All LitRPG books have some things you just need to accept and move on with to enjoy the story but those are pretty minimal for this book and were really easy to continue with the story.

    The MC (Ned) isn't OP or a jack-of-all-trades. He gets a head start and a unique ax to help guide him and has some good advantages because of them but also doesn't complete everything perfectly. He has some setbacks and disadvantages as well. Ned gets (from what I can tell so far) a unique class but only because of his choices and some guidance from his ax. It could be done by any player and had it's own limitations.

    Things that I liked.

    - Game mechanics make sense and work well. The players are playing a game, they can use game logic but have the freedom to make choices we all wish we could in rpg games. The classes are limited by a few choices the player makes but there is still a lot of flexibility without having an MC that can do everything. There are limits and trade offs to each class/profession/skill and players can't just learn everything or grind stats up. Also how the pain in-game is handled is well done. It's believable that people would want to play.

    - There isn't some end of the world, rouge AI, or game breaking mechanic in this book. It's just players in a game. I really found this refreshing.

    - The snarky Ax is a well balanced companion. It's funny without being over the top and isn't some one dimensional character.

    - Most new books I've read in this genre have some seriously cringe moments or over the top profanity that breaks the story for me. This book had ZERO cringe moments for me and any profanity was so naturally a part of the conversations that I can't remember if there was really much if any. I've stopped reading/listening to plenty of books do to those issues. It can just be to jarring for me.

    - No romance of any kind. It's focused on the game play.

    - No out-of-game drama to speak of. The motivation he is in game, is just one of those small things you accept and move on with. Small thing really.

    - This book is mostly PvE which I love. I'm not big on the PvP rival that never goes away or big battles between players. He does quests and plays the game.

    - Other elements as well but I don't want to spoil anything.

    Things I didn't like. Very few and minor.

    - The setup for the next book leaves a possibility of a PvP rival. I'm interested to see where this goes and how it is handled while still progressing with the game. It is expected as players will be hunting him for his ax but it is a minor concern for me. That's personal preference thought.

    - His traveling companion (Not his ax) felt under used and I hope to see more from that character in the future. Lots of potential there I think.

    - MINOR SPOILER!
    Ned has a small change to his character that I'm not a fan of. It has trade offs like everything else and doesn't change his overall build but just isn't a favorite of mine.


    In the end I really enjoyed this book and am anxious for the next in the series. Only time will tell what this author can do but I think this is a great start with a lot of potential. It was a very satisfying listen and I highly recommend picking it up.

    Totally worth it 5 stars

    I loved this book and it’s even better because someone named Kyle wrote it. It is the best book I have listened to in a while and I can’t recommend it strongly enough. Travis Baldree is a fantastic narrator who makes listening as enjoyable as possible. I can’t wait for the next book to be released. Respect Kyle & Travis.

    A new level for litrpg

    I was predisposed to liking this book for many reasons. First, I was lucky enough to win a raffle on reddit to get the audiobook version for free! Also, I'm a huge Cradle fan and love Travis Baldree as a narrator. Third, there's a talking axe. That's a trifecta!

    I enjoyed every bit of this story. There are rich characters, and a full blown evolving story. The ripple system is creative, compelling, and makes me wish I too could join in EBO.

    This is a must buy. I'm hooked from now on, can't wait for book 2.

    Best of the Best!

    I don't usually write reviews. Typically it is some stars and I'm done...but...this book was genuinely amazing. Well written character development, genuinely funny and kept the pace throughout. Well done Team!

    A good start but with faults

    Kyle Kirrin is a good writer and his story outline is similar to others in this genre; although the MC's backstory is unique. Actually, while the character is written as a caring person, his real world reclusive backstory is unappealing and his means of entering the game makes him somewhat of an unlikable character. There is a inanimate object with similar knowledge to Skippy with a personality of a warrior. The relationship between him and the MC is one of snarky acceptance but overdone. The book also suffers from stat-bane at times which often seems like filler.

    With that said, I liked the book and plan to purchase the next book in the series.

    Travis Baldree.really adds to the listening experience, as would be expected.

    Story time

    I was interested in this book for many reasons. However I wasn't sure if I wanted to purchase or wait and see what happens. I spoke with the author via his Facebook group and ended up buying the book! I can't even begin to explain how good of a decision that was and I can't recommend this story enough. it's AMAZING! I'm also typically a picky person when it comes to the narrator but Travis killed it! Keep up the amazing work the two of you!

    OMG THIS IS A MUST READ!

    From start to finish, this book by Kyle Kirrin was just simply Sublime an absolute masterpiece. By far Frank is my favorite and is amazing the Snark is top tier that of like of the HK-47 assassins droid from KOTOR All MEAT SUITS MUST DIE! The class system is stuff of epic proportions the world is both imaginative and immersive in both scale and in detail.

    GET THIS BOOK!

    OMG why can the second book not be out yet.

    Loved it.

    Loved it. A large part of that might have been my utter love for most things read by Travis Baldree, but considering how under the radar this book was I'm really surprised how well it turned out to be. Not too big a fan of LitRPG's because many turn out to be sloppy, but this was well written. Excited for the next part to drop.

    Amazing!

    Well written and funny! One of the best LitRPG-audiobooks I've heard so far! Travis Baldree narrates as well as always.

    Might listen to it a second time

    I really liked this book because the main character is smart, but not perfect, and sometimes his less stellar decisions influence the storyline. In fact knowing this, some of the things he did kept me constantly wondering how things will play out in the long run, and I liked that.
    There is also a good chunk of humor in this story. So if you looked at the cover and thought "nah, looks pretty dark and earnest" I can confidently tell you that that is not the case.

    More than it seems

    Im always abit sceptic with litrpgs and the description blurb didn't really seem appealing but please give at least the sample a try and see if you like it.

    Once i got started i couldnt stop listening. I loved the performance, very clear and easy to listen to.
    This is as far as i know the first published book of Kyle Kirrin and its a great start! I cant wait for the next entry in this series.
    Thanks for the great Story and Performance.
