Darwin, a video game addict, is sitting in his bathrobe and slippers playing his favorite MMO on a Christmas night when an uninvited guest breaks into his house to steal his belongings. After the scuffle is over he finds himself transported into one of the sword and magic RPG-style MMOs that he has always loved to play, albeit one he has never heard of, where he has to overcome trials and tribulations at every turn as he fights for his life alongside new companions.
I think Charles Dean has a winner of a story here, half the time I was laughing my ass off, the other half I was just waiting for the next head spinner to come around the corner, I've spent the whole story so far trying to understand what the hell the main characters past history is about, he keeps giving you bits and pieces of it as it goes along, but it stays entertaining, I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out, thanks for a great book.

In a world full of super powers, Felix has a pretty crappy one. He has the ability to modify any item he owns. To upgrade anything. Sounds great on paper. Almost like a video game. Except that the amount of power it takes to actually change, modify, or upgrade anything worthwhile is beyond his abilities. With that in mind, Felix settled into a normal life. A normal job. His entire world changes when the city he lives in is taken over by a super villain. Becoming a country of one city. A city state.
I have read everything this author has written and rated them all 5 stars, I find his stories new and inventive while still being familiar and entertaining, I would like to see more of this or any other stories you have to give us, Thanx and keep up the story telling.

Tricked into a world of banished gods, demons, goblins, sprites and magic, Richter must learn to meet the perils of The Land and begin to forge his own kingdom. Actions have consequences across The Land, with powerful creatures and factions now hell-bent on Richter's destruction. Can Richter forge allegiances to survive this harsh and unforgiving world or will he fall to the dark denizens of this ancient and unforgiving realm? A tale to shake "The Land" itself, measuring 10/10 on the Richter scale, how will Richter's choices shape the future of The Land and all who reside in it? Can he grow his power to meet the deadliest of beings of the land? When choices are often a shade of grey, how will Richter ensure he does not become what he seeks to destroy?
there are a few of these Litrpg books out there, some are good, some arnt so good, but there are a few that are great, I can't quite make up my mind on this one so for now I'll call it good.

Gaea's favored children have put her ancient plan to cleanse the Earth of humans into motion, and Kozalin stands high on their list of targets. Uncertain alliances, scheming gods, and an implacable foe will push Daniel to his limits. How far will the wizard from Earth go to protect his family?
This series just seems to get better, it's been a great story so far it just keeps getting better and better, can't wait for the next book.
Surviving Ragnarok is a challenge no matter what powers you have, and new problems keep cropping up. Demanding witches, genocidal monsters, divine feuds, and local politics will all keep Daniel on his toes. But his enemies have made one crucial mistake. They've given an engineer who understands the nature of magic time to build things.
I have enjoyed this series so far, I love the personalities of the individual characters, each on with their own histories and problems,and the mix of legends and mythologies.

What if love was magic?Isabella Fox is a very mediocre witch. Run out of the last few towns for spells gone wrong, she's ready to settle down but can't quite find a place to call home. Fortunately,....
I really enjoyed this little mini series, sort of like hallmark channel for audio books.

Mahan's ready for new adventures - just as the gaming world of Barliona thought it was about to reenter its old comfortable rut. The winds of the Dark Forest have finally died down; Altameda has recognized its new owner while Geranika is nursing new schemes of global destruction. Would Mahan be happy with this predictable old life? We think not!
I have loved this book series, and this book has been a great conclusion to this story arc but I hope it isn't the last of the series.
What you thought you knew about vampires and werewolves is wrong...so very, very, wrong. A thousand years of effort to keep the Unknown World hidden is unraveling and the Patriarch is tired. He needs to find someone to take over. He finds Bethany Anne.
Great new series, I like the new take with vampires, weres, and maybe aliens, we will just have to see where the story goes.
The idea was simple enough for the alien race who took Aneka Jansen from Earth in 2011. Take a human, make her into a perfect tool to observe humanity from the inside, and so determine how best to advance this young race into their future. Unfortunately for them and her, their plans went awry, and Aneka became the only survivor on a dead ship marooned in deep space.
I think Teasdale has a great new theme and story, it should make a great new series, I know I will be reading the next book as soon as it comes out, good choice for narration also, Gabrielle did a wonderfully job, I liked the British accent, all heroines need not be american.
The army of senior warriors has repeatedly beaten back numerous attempted invasions of Earth. Planet Dixie has fallen to the Libra Alliance using Flem mercenaries. Scotty Scholl, Earth's ambassador, is on the run. The population has been infected by a pandemic rendering the victims helpless against their invaders and deadly against their allies. The Gray Panthers, along with US Army Special Forces, are repulsed with heavy casualties while attacking the dug-in invaders.
Good story, I just wish there was more work on the individual carectors stories, and a little after story cleanup.
