In the realm of Eon, strength is the rule of law. In daylight, the realm is ruled by the adepts, a group of mighty cultivators that use their spirits to wield world-bending, mystic power. These adepts live in constant strife, fighting for control of relics that hold the divine powers of ancient gods. In twilight, the realm belongs to the darkbeasts, nightmarish creatures born of a mysterious fog known as the veil. These creatures are drawn to power, hoarding relics in their dungeons and slaying any adepts that dare venture too close.

This could have been a marginal quality story but it was destroyed by an MC who was at best an arrogant and stupid troglodyte. An MC who wanders around saying "I can take care of myself" yet keeps doing the dumbest of things. I've been in the world less than a day, have been beaten and saved numerous times, so let's ignore the wise old man and challenge someone I can see and am told is better than me because I'm an arrogant prig. It gets to the point that you long for him to be killed so we can finally get to a good character. The development of the world is poor and not thought out, not a true litrpg, a sad addition to the audible line up. A waste of credits and time. If you are looking for a good read look anywhere else.

Only five days have passed since Jade was brought to a distant world and a new life. Mobile for the first time ever, Jade is given the chance to do something she’s always wanted: attend school. Dracona isn’t your typical school, however. In Andara she needs to learn all the skills an adventurer needs. For her, that means how to cast magic and use weapons without hurting herself. She’ll have to learn fast because the obstacle course isn’t the only thing challenging her progress; she’s racing against the clock to learn how to beat the Mesmer before they find her.

This is one of my favorite new series. The character is sweet and fun to read. The time line is a bit slow but alot happens in the short period of time. Sadly book 2 ends right before something discussed in book one happens leaving me desperate for more. Keep writing, please!

Ryker only had one goal in his life right now: Turn a certain adventuring guild into a flaming wreck while dancing merrily through the smoldering ruins. All for the chance to get back at a handful of people. It didn’t work out that way though. At all. He’d become the Count of Dungeon, made a hostage, married off to the false queen’s daughter against his will, and had his county made ground zero for a religious war. To top all that off, the Dark Lord of the North wants to see Ryker personally.

Outstanding book by an amazing author. I would like it if we could focus more on building but I suspect the next book will be more along those lines.

For those who adore this author: The most important part of this book is the last line. Can't wait! :)

Fair book but it felt short and incomplete. The author states at the end that he wanted to deal with another aspect of the story line but it would have doubled the length. That SHOULD have been done. The real issue is that by not continuing the story this book was left incomplete. More than half the book goes to development of characters (which is good in a fully developed story) and as soon as the "story" starts the book is over. No conclusion, terrible wrap up, no end. I read alot of first time authors and though this author says this is not his first book it reads like one.

Book 2 in this series was terribly written with a character with split personality's that did not even fit with things previously written and our MC absent half the book. I read comments by the author on how she had fixed the issues and this was a better book because of the comments so I chose to try the next book. This was a mistake! Book three was NOT as bad as book 2 but was still poor.
*spoilers*
In this book our master of mind magic and follower of "the way" continues in his complete self interested hypocrisy by his speciest actions.
Our poorly written split personality char instead of dying gets converted to a new named char better than the first but still poor
Our MC gets nerfed by the UI because the author could not figure out how to make time pass.
Finally an act of noble self sacrifice was pissed on by the author for no apparent reason.

I gave book 3 a try and it was a mistake I won't make again.

Gabe abandoned life as a conman after the disasters in Lincoln, and he managed to carve out a bit of peace with the scraps he had left. Unfortunately, bad guys suck at respecting personal boundaries. So, together with Heather and a group of weird new companions, he finds himself shackled to a horrifying cosmic game with sky-high stakes, inscrutable goals, and rules that seem to change every five minutes. And when old gods and monsters resurface to make things so much worse, he's finally forced to admit that he might not be talking his way past any of it.

This is the second book in an outstanding series. This is the continuing stories of Gabe a semi vanilla human (he was a lovable con man) dropped into the "real" world were magic and ethereal beings exist alongside our own. Gabe must come to terms with this world and his own powers while struggling with his own humanity. This is a great series with dynamic characters and our female partner is great. Well worth the credit!

This series was outstanding until book 3. We lost our reader in book 4 which was a miserable attempt at the story. This book our MC has become nothing more than an apathetic tag along. In previous books our MC planned his character growth and lead his troops. Now he acts stupid and whines on every occasion and has someone else lead his campaigns. The book got a bit better for the last two hours but still in the end this was just another terrible installment.

Let me begin by saying this got 4 stars only because of how good the first book was.

The real issues come down to the game elements. Our low level character goes more than half the book without leveling. In so doing the character is regularly shown to be weak this stays the same through the whole book. The game is in its early stages with everyone under level 10 but it seems reasonable that a player can give out a matched set of epic gear? Seems like the author does not understand epic gear. In what universe does a corporation dedicated to a good feelings from its customers hire a professional player killer, people who prey on the weak? I know the game is supposed to be "realistic" but there is no realism regarding a low level player bribing an NPC more than 3 times his level to act against his own self interests to screw another players complete game experience. That's like saying the homeless man who speaks in drivel bribed the chief of police to fire a detective with a great closure rate. It does not hold together and does not make sense for an AI who was grown for the very duty of creating a game people love to play. Finally, I understand the need to show what's going on in all areas of the game world but it felt like half the book was not the main character and that was a bad use of the authors pages. If your going to dedicate this much time away from the MC increase the book length!

This is a fun litRPG and when I say Overpowered I mean there is no level limit and thus everything's power is supersized. In this book the author takes a huge step forward in his writing and with the increased length I'll give other books from this author a try.

Even with the edge that offers, most Glitch Hunters die young, thrown by quests into areas of deadly conflict. Alex's first quest draws him to a city with a grisly past, and unless he can discern truth from lies in time, an even darker future.

I picked this book up on a lark. I've listened to other books by the author but gave up because I thought they were by and large to short. I picked this one up and was surprised from the very start. it was a fun mad rush with a great spin on the hero. The author asked we let everyone know what we think and I'm thrilled that the author has chosen to write a book with a reasonable length! Keep them coming!
