Wynne might have been human once. It's hard to say. Now he's a bunker core, a nanomachine controller responsible for an entire complex. Of course, the place is a bit wrecked. And the world outside is in ruins. And he's pretty sure that whoever put him here is going to come looking for him at some point....

The story is intriguing and enjoyable. Characters are interesting. I've never heard this narrator before but he's excellent. He's now in my top 3. Try it, you wont be disappointed.

but way too much sex. The sex scenes are way too long and descriptive. I'm no prude but they do nothing to advance the story. I found myself fast forwarding through much of it. Still cant stand the narrator. Xe Sands does ok for the female parts and actually changes her voice for different characters unlike what's his name. The actual story is compelling and I will finish the series.

Roark von Graf - hedge mage and lesser noble of Traisbin - is one of only a handful of Freedom fighters left, and he knows the Resistance’s days are numbered. Unless they do something drastic... But when a daring plan to unseat the Tyrant King goes awry, Roark finds himself on the run through an interdimensional portal, which strands him in a very unexpected location: an ultra-immersive fantasy video game called Hearthworld. He can’t log out, his magic is on the fritz, and, worst of all, he’s not even human.

In the LitRPG genre it is really hit or miss. For every 5 bad books you get one good one. This was a good one. Not great but pretty darn good. It never hurts to have the best narrator around narrate your book either. I will definitely get the next one and follow the series.

I have to think Audible fakes reviews. There is no way these books got 4 and 5 stars from actual people. There are so many problems with these books I dont know where to start. They are not interesting or fun. I bought the 2nd book even after not enjoying the first hoping it would get better. It did not and I will not be buying the 3rd. Jeff Hayes annoys me too. The echoes and sound effects are too much. Annie Ellicott is terrible. There are great books in this genre, but unfortunately also a lot of trash and this is the latter.

Thrust into an unknown, unwanted situation, most would feel panic, fear anger, and fall into chaos. Erik and Rugrat are not immune to those feelings, but they have stepped into chaos so many times, it is simply a different challenge. Two weeks ago, Erik lost his legs and his arm. Today he got a message. "You have been randomly selected to join the Ten Realms. One may choose to ascend the Ten Realms, thereupon making a request to the Gods of the Realms. Only those who are Level 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, and 90 may ascend to the next realm. Fortune favors the strong!”

I didnt know this was the "antics" guy when I bought the book but figured it out after the first couple of chapters. Chatfield is not a great writer. Not even sure if I would call him good.
The story is ok. The dialog he writes is trash. The narrator is alright but the voice he chose for the MC was wrong. I cannot recommend this book but at the same time it's not bad enough for me to return it. Give it a shot if you have a credit burning a hole in your pocket.
Ooorrrr... go get Unsouled by Will Wight and see what REAL writing is like.

I was skeptical at first. Mainly because I dont like spending credits on anything less than 12 hours. But halfway through I already purchased the second book. I won't go into details but this is just a great story so far. Just buy it and enjoy.

Not sure why this is labeled as a Jack Ryan book. He's not in it except for his son talking about him constantly. The story isn't very engaging and there are audio issues. Not Clancys best work.

When virtual reality becomes real enough that people feel as if they're being transported to another world, Valia Online arrives. A man running from his past joins the game to forget it all. Calling himself Jack Thorn, he chooses an undead race, Deathlord. A mage by choice, and a swordsman by necessity, he soon finds out that he'll need to use much more than magic and steel to survive; strategy, creativity, and carefully chosen words can often accomplish what simple attacks can't.

Seriously? Have you people never listened to another audiobook? My guess is they are friends of the author. Look...the story isn't terrible, the magic system is ok and the races are pretty well thought out. But this guy CANNOT write dialog. It is so childish that I kept waiting for the MC to say " I'm rubber and you're glue, whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you." Its that bad. The narration is ok. Jeff decided to use his most annoying voice for the MC so enjoy that. Jeff Hayes is like the Dwayne Johnson of narration...he will read anything. Anyway, I cant recommend this book but it's not so terrible that I would say dont buy it. You can always return it I guess. I won't since I listened to the whole thing. I will probably get book 2 just to see where the story goes but I promise I won't enjoy it!!
