Publisher's Summary

To earn a second chance at life, Devrim Bains must die and enter a virtual world of monsters and mayhem. Let's just hope one death is all it will take, because he can't afford another.

When Devrim Bains reaches his 21st birthday, he's finally punished for a crime that was never his fault - being born. In a world of strict population control, his life's been decided for him, and it's about to end. But a stroke of luck gives him opportunity to have his consciousness uploaded into a simulated-reality game world with the promise of paradise.

Except paradise always comes with a cost.

Monsters of legend and myths of old come to life in Lorian, needing to be slain or tamed for Devrim to have a shot at enjoying freedom. It'd be easy enough if one of the fiends hadn't raised an army hellbent on conquering everything. The goblin king has his sights set taking the lands of Lorian in his iron grasp, and Devrim Bains' only chance is to quickly learn what it means to be a slayer.

To make sure his new lease on life isn't cut painfully short, he's going to have to embody the greatest rule in Monster Slayer Online: hunt or be hunted!

Goblin King is the first novel of the Monster Slayer Online LitRPG/Gamelit series. If you loved The 100, the Monster Hunter game franchise, and Dragon's Dogma, you'll enjoy this fast-paced, hard-action monster-slaying novel.

Author's note: Goblin King is a LitRPG/GameLit novel featuring gamelike progression/skills and appropriate text/pop-ups in narration. Please keep this in mind while listening.

Nicely done LitRPG

Very well written story, definitely compares to some of the other litrpg stories that I have listened too in the past few months. Also falls in the length that I prefer being over 10 hours. Not my typical genre but am looking forward to more titles by this author in this particular area. Has tons of potential to be a big name in the future.

excellent performance but weak plot

one of the best performance jeff hays did, especially in chapter 30.

but the story tends to be generic and linear. the characters are not well developed and when they are in danger, there is not much impact/tension due to how under develop they are. despite jeff hays excellent performance, the book couldnt hold my attention more than 30 mins at a time. :(

Excellent book

This book is a really nice listen. It moves at an excellent pace and the narrator has a nice range and keeps you engaged.

Jeff Hays

the narrator made the book amazing! sound effects, and actual song sung, and the many voices make it come alive for me.

Great narrator horrible story/plot/depth

I love jeff hays he is a amazing narrator in my opinon but even he couldnt make me enjoy this book. I really gave this book a chance and listened to it because I usually don't like people who give there opinion after one hour of listening, but it was a struggle to get through it. The story is extremely lacking with really no plot or depth to it. No real backround or back story for any of the characters makes them boring and I was not emotionally attached to any of them. And the litrpg elements where barely there just the most basic concepts but still lacking in my opinion.

jeff hays fanboy

great book if you need to do something mindless or illogical, you will feel right at home.

the MC here was raised in isolation fed clothed educated to be a repair man just so they can execute him when he turns 21. There is never even an attempt to explain this nonsensical logic. it is all just glossed over so by the time he is uploaded to the "game" he is a bright shiny pile of downtrodden victim.

Found myself not caring at all

the characters had no .... character. they were all boring and it was a struggle to care about anything going on in this story.

i rooted for the badguys more than the protagonist, i feel like i could never listen to the next book in this series and be just fine

Jeff Hays NEVER disappointing in a narration!

Book was actually just ok. Lacking of character development and rushed.

Jeff Hays was BRILLIANT in the narrating.
