In the face of an impossible mission, Krian has no choice but to keep going while risking everything that's become dear to him.

In The Land: Predators, the Mist Village has harnessed its power. With core buildings, professional fighters, and now their own dungeon, the settlement is primed to grow into a kingdom of true power and magic. The path to power has not been without risk, however. The MistVillage has been noticed. Evil nobles from the Kingdom of Law, bloodthirsty goblins from the Serrated Mountains, an undead lord with a penchant for human sacrifice, and fanatical kobolds from the Depths all plot the village's destruction.

I have enjoyed the land through all of its installments. Predators was an unbelievable gift as it was literally two books and one. The details and the stories were phenomenal. My biggest fear was this would be the last installment, fortunately I do not believe that is true anymore. You will thoroughly enjoy every bite of this story and wait impatiently for the release of the next. The land has been such a fun adventure and I even had to revisit some of the earlier novels to confirm some of the history.

Harry's back! The even more anticipated third audiobook from the best-selling Fayroll series is here. With even more epic battles, challenging quests and even rarer items. Following on from "The Road East", Harriton's work has been very well received, and his new bosses are pleased with him. Seemingly everything is going well, as he enjoys visiting Fayroll more and more and spending time with his new girlfriend, Vika. But is everything as it seems? Can things stay so positive with him?

Unexpectedly the story continues. I believe that at the end of books 6 they had concluded this series but perhaps by popular demand and interest it continued. The next installment was very enjoyable lighthearted and I think you’ll find it worth your time.

A huge world full of adventures, ancient mysteries, and monsters starving for your death. A world where everyone can make their biggest dream come true and become anyone they wish - a successful trader, a wise anchorite, a brave warrior, or a battle mage who can control disastrous elemental powers. But don't expect that the path to your dream will be easy and rosy. The path to the top is very long, if you can ever reach it.

The story starts off surprisingly strong. With most in the style, tremendous amount of effort is put into laying the groundwork as to what’s going on. this one goes right to it allows you to slowly uncover the details. There are many twists and turns and a tremendous amount of antagonists to keep it exciting. If you like in game stories you’ll definitely like this one.

Seventeen-year-old Ryn Whittaker is a Citadel: an elite, enhanced soldier specially chosen to guard a Rift, a mysterious and dangerous portal to alternate Earths scientists cannot control or close. Trained from the age of 14, Ryn can run faster, jump farther, and fight better than a Navy SEAL - which is good when you're not sure if a laser-wielding Neanderthal or an ax-wielding Viking is trying to make it through the Rift and into your world. But the teenager's military conditioning and education have not prepared her for the boy who crosses through.

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

Being an avid immersion game book reader I was intrigued with this book. And without realizing it when I purchased the book that it was narrated by Will Wheaton. Enjoying his performance in Star Trek Next Generation and then his occasional cameos on The Big Bang Theory, he added another level of interest in this book. The characters are very interesting and the detail description allows full immersion in the story. I plan on seeing the movie and hope that they are able to do it justice. I’m sure if you get a copy of this you’ll find it extremely entertaining.
