Publisher's Summary

The acclaimed debut novel of the best-selling LitRPG Saga, Chaos Seeds, from the father of American LitRPG, Aleron Kong.

#1 in Cyberpunk and Video Game Fantasy

Over THREE THOUSAND positive reviews on Goodreads

In The Land: Founding, the first volume of the award-winning Chaos Seeds saga, the Exiles and Eternals toy with the lives of unwitting humans. Gamers sign away their souls in unread contracts as they log online each day. One at a time, these people are stolen, mind and soul, into a world of magic and adventure that operates by the same laws as the game they worshiped at for years.

Through days of blood and nights of horror, Richter makes both enemies and allies. After witnessing a death, as horrible as it was senseless, he decides that simple survival is not enough. He will found a kingdom all his own. As his power grows, however, so too does the list of killers that want what he has created. To survive, he must come to grips with his own mortality and morality, and learn what all true warriors come to discover.

Both cannot always survive.

"Are you a killer or a king?" they asked.

His answer... "Is there a difference?"

    "Told like a classic mmo"

    Easy listening, and interesting story. The only thing I'm not too fond of is the sound effects

    "Welcome to the Land!!!"

    Ok so if you have never listened to or read a litrpg your in for a treat!

    Aleron Kong does an amazing job of world building, character development, funny real world reference "alot of the litrpg out is russian based and some of the references mean little to the English crowd". If you have ever played an mmo and thought man I want to live in this world than this book is for you! The Land is a vibrant world with amazing characters "Sion is my favorite"! Nick Podehl is the narrator and his performance is great, the sound effects are spot on.

    I won't give you any spoilers but if your even remotely interested in the summary give this book a go and you will fall in love!

    "Excellent"

    The narration is amazing, the main character doesn't sound like a teenager like he use too, but an actual adult, in his mid twenties. Sion doesn't sound annoying anymore; really all the things I didn't like about the first narration of this book were fixed.

    I don't really care for the sounds before stat & explanation windows, just a bit overdone.

    My favorite character voice is Mama, "Don't lie to Mama!" but they are well done. Nick Podehl has done great work in "The Gam3" and other fantasy book, and hopefully will continue working with both series.

    "May the ground shake"

    Loved the new version of the audiobook the narrator really helped to bring the book to life.

    I have read up till book six and love the series but love audiobooks so that they are able to bring the story to life. Looking forward to more of the books in the series to be brought to life.

    "Great book and series"

    I loved this book! It is the second series I have started in the lit rpg genre. I am now through the first 4 books in this series and it emotionally hurts each time I finish one if the next if not available yet. Nick Podehl does such a wonderful job narrating this book that I have begun looking for other series narrated by him.

    "Gamers will love this one"

    Actually, a good story but just not so much for me. Nick does a great job reading it. Somehow, lacked depth and not sure where it was going. Maybe later I will try again.

    "Truly great experience"

    This book is quite remarkable. Search an intriguing story. It kept me captivated from beginning to end. This story starts off amazing and stays amazing throughout the whole book. I almost want to do a review in the middle of the story. I guess the only thing to do now is to continue on with the next book and next book and next book until the series is complete. Do yourself a favor and purchase this book, listen to the story, and get drawn in to the world that the author has magnificently created.

    "This is a really fun book!"

    I chose this book because I love the narrator, and I was pleasantly surprised. I love worldbuilding books (i.e. Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan, and anything similar) And have recently begun playing RPGs, So this book caught my attention. The book reads as if the main character is home playing an RPG, then all the sudden He passes out and when he wakes up, He has been transported into a real life Fantasy RPG! It is extremely entertaining

    After a quick purchase while on my way out of the country to the sun I wasn't expecting much. The combination of smart writing and an interesting plot idea has left me buying the next few books in the series.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this. Found it hard to 'put' down and ended up finding any opportunity for a quick few minutes catching up. Took me right back to my role playing days.

    "Possibly the best book i've ever read"

    I've finished this book in 24 hours, that's how much I loved it.

    The main character was so in tuned with the storyline. How he progressed made me feel like I was playing in the Land itself.

    it's midnight I have work tomorrow, but screw it I'm starting the next book now.

    Thank you so much for creating the world of Land Aleron Kong.

    "Wow - refreshing and captivating throughout!!!"
    If you could sum up The Land: Founding: A LitRPG Saga in three words, what would they be?

    Aleron does a fantastic job bringing together gaming with reading, full of action and wonderful detail throughout - could easily see this recreated as a movie. Can't wait to read book two.
