Publisher's Summary

In a world where war would result in complete annihilation, proxy war by simulation is the new way.

When a Marine turned video gamer is recalled for the world’s first virtual war, he learns the sim has been hacked. What follows is a crazy adventure of one Marine searching for survivors, battling mechs, and finding abnormalities in the sim that tie back to his old-school days as a gamer. His only help comes in the form of three badass warrior ladies, and two of them are characters from his favorite games.

It's up to him and his new friends to win this war or die trying.

Note: This audiobook has a lot of death but a lot of fun. Be prepared for chaos and mayhem one minute, silly old-school game references the next (think Rampart, Seiken Densetus 2, etc.), and team building in a harem style. It's possibly the weirdest audiobook to which you've ever listened. For fans of Ready Player One and consumers of GameLit.

The future of wars (virtual)

Retired marine becomes Vp of a game company. He gets called back up for the first of a new style of wars...a virtual war where soldiers won’t die because they are transported into a virtual world to do battle on a limited map with specified weapons all while the world Watches...this will be how the future wars are settled with the losers to settle and pay up through resources, funds, lands to the victors....only (of course) something goes wrong, soldiers are dying, the enemy has weapons and abilities they shouldn’t have and it’s up to our MC and secret friend or two to even the odds and win the war even if it takes some unorthodox methods. The first in a series that promises to be quite awesome. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

Good Book, Great Start!

I enjoyed this book the characters seemed relatable, the action was good and the plot was interesting. It also is a great setup for an ongoing series. I want to see more growth from the female characters. I can’t wait for the next audiobook!
Good narration it kept me involved!

Hell yeah!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Good ol' badassery and ass kicking here. It was fun, gritty, highly entertaining! The narration is very well done. All in all, if you love the LitRPG/Gamelit genre, you should pick this one up. My only bitch is that I wish these were longer. I always tend to finish them in one sitting and am left wanting more.

Another great book from a leader in the genre!

While not a big fan of audiobooks, this one was an easy listen. the narrator was easy to understand, well spoken and did a great job giving voices to the multiple characters. As for the book, it had a steadily flowing plot that was easy to follow. Multiple interesting settings both in and out of the game world and a diverse group of characters. The protagonist has a sense of depth and backstory that allows the reader to easily connect to the story. All of the characters seem realistic as do their actions and choices. Action packed throughout the final fight of this book was written wonderful and still leaves the option for more books in the series.

Retro gaming meets VR gamelit

This was a really fun listen. I really liked how old school games and beloved characters were not only a big part of the plot, but made appearances and helped out. Definitely similar to Ready Player One with the retro gaming nostalgia, but a classic stuck in the game LitRPG with high stakes. Excited for the next book and where it goes from here.
