Publisher's Summary

After accepting the fact that he will never know his old reality again, Gunnar looks forward toward building a new life inside Eden's Gate.

It's time to form a guild, gather resources, and earn the acceptance of the Edgewood inhabitants.

If only things were that easy....

The dark elves aren't thrilled about having humans in Edgewood, the mine isn't vacant, and you can't form a guild without at least a few guild mates.

Will Gunnar pursue Adeelee? Is Rachel still out there somewhere? And who is Jax exactly? Could he really be a Sparrow?

More robotic than the NPC's

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story isn't compelling and only covers a few days, the main character struggles with a few moral decisions, but doesn't act on the single paragraph of guilt he feels

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Extremely predictable with no emotional appeal, doesn't help that the main character has forgotten his reason for forming his guild

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator delivers lines with a constant monotone.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Eden's Gate: The Sparrow?

The earlier scenes with Jax and the speculation around him

Any additional comments?

I can tell the author is a huge fan of the drizz't books because the main character is heavily influenced, which I find irritating

Not worth continuing

It's a fun story to read, but it's not really going anywhere. The story is very shallow and short. The entirety of book one and two is only 14 days. There wasn't much of a plot and it was put aside till the end of the book where it was quickly accomplished. The author adds things to it, like the hackers on earth, and really just forgets about them through the whole book. It's also very tedious how he lists all the stats of everything everytime someone picks up an item or sets it down. At some points, I think the author pulls things out of his back side rather than doing any research which makes the world feel fake. I'm not really interested to know what happens in a story when the writer seems unknowledgeable and unimaginative and inexperienced. Lets just say I'm glad this author didn't write something like Lord of the Rings. Also, he seems mostly caught up with attractive women, even more than Piers Anthony (and that's saying a lot). I also noticed things like corrupted phrases and wasn't sure if the author didn't know correct grammar or if it was just the character: "I could care less", which is a corruption of the correct, "I couldn't care less". Book one and two were fun but there is no desire to continue.

Great story and performance for the most part

The story is stacking up nicely, and over all the performance was good, but there were some occasional audio errors at the end of a chapter that ended mid sentence.

The first two books have been great. The narration is as good as any. The author has a great balance of detail and moving the story forward. I look forward to the rest of the books

good could have been better

good narrator, main character is a little weak and makes some questionable choices that leaves you shaking your head. story is not bad just a little unclear on some points.

GOOD BOOK

I have over 300 audible titles and I have to say that the narration and performance of this book is one of the best I've heard. It's a compelling universe with a great story and awesome characters

IF ONLY

Listened to both books was dubious at first but the more I listened the more I got hooked, if there are more Eden’s gate I would love to know, mr Brody, please don’t let it end there, you can’t let it end there, 😏😉

Another great book from Brody

Purchased this as soon as it became available after listening to the first book. The author did a good job with the story picking up where the last book finished off. The characters development through the story continues to grow and the MC does not become some kind of uber player which is good. The character leveling is consistent and not like other litrpg authors novels who feel the need to describe every stat levelling which happens nearly every other paragraph which is very annoying, Edward Brody has done a far better job with his novels than alot of other litrpg authors. Definitely looking forward to book 3. Pavi Proczko continues to do an brilliant job narrating the books I hope he continues to the other books in this series!

Terrific Litrpg

Far better than the self proclained king of litrpg, Aleron Kong and yet I think his is really good too.

Just wish these litrpg self publishers would get a real proof reader, which none so far have done.
Only downside is the rather silly Americanising of the language such as month, day, year. In what world does it go month before day followed by year. Small quibbles really but when listening instead of reading, they really stand out and spoil the narration somewhat.

This narrator was an excellent choice though, with good rythm, speed, volume and pitch as well as an excellent range across both male and female voices.

Looking forward to book 3.

Good story. really enjoyed it

Any additional comments?

Only one problem. Why would someone that is so interested in magic and invests in intellect, always forget to use his magic in his fights apart from one boring fire spell that he has had since early book one?
