Publisher's Summary

Aether Online sounded like Alex's dream. Now, it's his nightmare.

Cheating his way to the head of the line, Alex is one of the first to play Aether Online, the world’s first full-immersion VRMMO. Alex quickly learns that once you're in, you can't get out. 

Trapped in the Aether Lands, Alex must become an Aether Knight to survive. Struggling in a world under siege, Alex must learn to fulfil his new role, hunting the deadly machine beasts known as Machina for parts. Every kill brings him new materials, new equipment to forge, each beast slain making Alex more powerful.

Hunting monsters is only the first step. Alex must gather allies and master the mysterious powers of the Aether if he ever hopes of getting home.

good shit

it was good from the first page to the last and unlike a lot of the other LitRpg's I've read it didn't make the main character seem op from the very start him and the others have to think there way out of different situations and stuff and that was refreshing anyway great book give it a listen

Fun listen!

This is a solid fantasy title. It's not breaking new ground or trying to be subversive, but it sets a good stage, with an interesting world and fun characters. I'll be listening to the next one

good book!

This was a fun listen. I enjoyed the world building and the set up for book two is pretty solid. lots of questions that need answers! This was definitely a unique take on lit rpg and I found the characters enjoyable. The ending was probably the most memorable part, definitely threw me for a loop!
Really enjoyed Matt Jenkins narration of the story, definitely did a great job with the narration. Not too much in the way of varied voices but who needs it when you absolutely do bang on job despite? look forward to continuing the story through Matt's unique brand of narration! will definitely be buying book 2

I received this book in exchange for a unbiased review.

Really nice story with an OK narration

So the story is quite simple. MC is trapped in a game (quite similar to Horizon Zero Dawn) and needs to get better gear to improve as there are no level-ups or anything like that. Characters are well done, but nothing too fancy. Overall quite good story.

Now for the narration. This was the first audiobook I listened to, so I'm not sure if some of the practices are common or not. Either way, I really enjoyed that sometimes the narrator modifies his voice according to the situation, that means if the character is an AI or is speaking with a megaphone his voice changes accordingly. What I didn't enjoy so much is that some conversations were hard to follow and sometimes the narration felt quite flat.

However, I do recommend this short story as it was enjoyable and simple.

very good

the story itself is extremely compelling and draws you on, while the narration is done extremely vividly and adds a lot to the experience.

Different take on LitRPGs

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next book. The premise is interesting, as is the "leveling" system. I only docked it one star due to its length (an 8 hour minimum is my typical cutoff for a book).

Very interesting

Loved the book, real interesting take on the VRMMO idea, only complaint is the way it ended, loved the ending but so abrupt. Hope book two is in the works because I finished this book too fast.

Very fun GameLit title from a new author.

Whether this audiobook should be properly classed as an isekai or a VRMMO, I am not quite sure, but I can say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice mix of drama and action, interesting bits of steampunk tossed in almost as an aftertought

At first I found the narrator's voice a bit annoying, but it quickly grew upon me.

The only issue I have with this title is that it was not truly a complete story line, but rather ended abruptly with a great many plot lines still up in the air.

Other than that reservation, I recommend this for anyone who is a fan of GameLit, LitRPG, Isekai or even Steampunk.

Please note that I received a review copy of this audiobook at my request with the understanding that I write a review. All opinions are my own.

A solid intro to a new Litrpg

~Disclaimer: I received a free audiobook copy of this book. ~

The narrator does a decent job and I didn’t hate any of the voices he used (although some of the female voices were a bit annoying).

One of the reasons I requested an audiobook of this book was litrpg with a male protagonist and no harems. I get tired of that particular wish fulfillment in litrpgs. Alex and Casey aren’t super fleshed out in this book, but because it is short and it has a lot of world-building I think that is to be expected. I did like both Alex and Casey and the other characters seem like they have potential.

I think this is a solid introduction to the world of Aether. I wish it wasn’t so short, but I suppose this way we can expect to get more releases quicker than if the author aimed for 300 pages per book. I did end up following the author's page on Amazon because I am intrigued enough to keep following along (plus I pay for kindle unlimited and I might as well find more authors who use it).

Good, but short.

Took a couple of chapters to get going, but by 3 or 4 I was properly invested! Enjoyable charterers, some interesting world building and good narration,

My biggest complaint is that it is so very short! It feels like it could much longer without outstaying its welcome.

great first book

Nice intro into an intersting litrpg/portal fantasy story, the characters are fleshed out decently and the "game elements" are nicely justified.

Well voiced and no annoying noises or such, mid-heavy english accent but good pronounciation.
