Publisher's Summary

After being approached by the military with a contract he couldn't refuse, James winds up uploaded into a virtual-reality game as a beta tester. Waking up in the Great Savanna, James struggles with a less-than-useful interface before he comes across two creatures locked in battle. The shoulder-high grass allows him glimpses of a lionesque creature fending off a torrent of scales and claws. Sneaking up to steal a better look at the surreal situation, James discovers two things:

  1. Getting hurt in the game...well, hurts!   
  2. This noble race of lion-men, named Martyrs, has almost been decimated by the scaled lizard creatures. 

By unwillingly saving the life of a Martyr cub, James is adopted into their village. He grows to love the beauty of the Great Savanna and his adopted game brother, whose life he saved.... That is until Patrick arrives and the tranquility of the game is shattered.  

James embarks on a mission for answers to his steadily increasing list of questions. On the top of that list, "What the hell happened to the human race, and where is my damn brother?"

MY NEW FAVORITE SERIES

I’m so obsessed with this book! I followed the author on RoyalRoad and am already loving the chapters he’s posted for the sequel! This book is very well crafted, with the right mix or story and RPG elements. The character and plot development are well orchestrated, and while James is the main character, Torunn is hands down my favorite! The author does use the character names a lot when he could easily say he or she.

The narrator was decent. He had a very nice voice, but he sometimes inflected odd parts of sentences. Some parts of the story I was very into it, and some parts it felt like the narrator was just reading a script.

Unique litrpg setting & fun story

I don't think there has been a litrpg set in a savanna yet. It kind if reminded me if the barrens from WOW but funner.

True LitRPG

I've been sick of a lot of the books popping up lately that claim to be LitRPG, but are just convoluted messes.

Good book

I greatly enjoyed this book its well written and well recorded. I’m not going to lie Given the cover I expected the main character to choose a non human race. I was very disappointed that the main character is a human... personally greatly dislike the human race to put it lightly but that is my personal opinion and has no effect on weather the book is good or not.

Liked it

I really enjoyed the tale of James and the Martyrs. For me it was the story flowed pretty well through most of the book. The game procedure swung together well and I liked having the game adjust as the player knew more. The people parts of the story were well done and I'm happy for my time with the humans and the Martyrs. I highly recommend this.

My first LitRPG - Very Interesting

Never read a book like this before. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I couldn’t help but wonder how it would be if the game mechanics were explained outright in the beginning.
