Publisher's Summary

Getting eaten alive is the worst! Stabbings, maimings, and corrosive black magic are not that great either, but you really don't want to be a wolf treat!

That is the kind of hands on, "teeth on", education you get when you are summoned to The Land.

James did not want to be summoned!

Not really... well a maybe, just a bit!

But he had certainly not agreed to be summoned!

Well technically speaking he HAD agreed, but good god, who had the time to read all of that fine print when there was epic gaming to be done!

When DangerZone Industries had released the latest and greatest VRMMORPG, James, and millions of other virtual reality players, had sought purpose and self-definition in this new world. The tag line "Live the life your soul was meant for" had captured the hearts and minds of his entire generation.

The Land, was the largest and most dynamic virtual reality game of all time. James and his friends had devoted countless hours, and become one of the top teams in the game. They were at the brink of greatness, but then there was this light!

When he was actually summoned to the Land, it was both disturbing and exhilarating. When he then became entangled in the eternal war of sprites and goblins, the unsavory practices of the local king, and had a memorable night at the inn called the Whistling Hen, he came to one clear conclusion: Again, getting eaten alive is really really the worst!

While uncovering such deep philosophical knowledge, James will forge a place in this new world, and hopefully avoid the machinations of those who want him to destroy it. What does it mean to be a Chaos Seed anyway?

    "A definite must read!"

    This series is very much like the "Play to Live" series. So if you like that series, you'll love this one. You definitely want more when it ends. And I can't wait until more "Chaos Seeds" come into the story.

    "really fun story."

    I enjoyed the perspective, with the inclusion of all the game play type stats. it makes this story stand out. the end was a little abrupt though.

    Story
    "Excellent LitRPG! Eagerly awaiting book 2!"

    In a field mostly dominated by Russian authors it seems, it's nice to have an excellent addition to the American take on the genre, which seems to be more focused on community and moralizing than personal progression and aggrandizement, giving it more seriousness and depth vs a humorous, boastful tone, It was an exciting adventure, and I found myself having trouble putting it down to go to sleep.. It has a pretty unique world and interface, and I am definitely intrigued by the over-arching plot.

    It seems like this genre has two main development focuses: individual skills/progression and team/empire building. Some series focus on one more so than the other, but this has a good mix of both along with a healthy dose of permanent consequences.

    The narrator, Guy Williams, was excellent as always. He's a great narrator for these sorts of mixes of technology and magic and does well with the unique character voices.

    Since there's already 5 books in the series, I'm hoping more come out soon!
