Publisher's Summary

An Epic Gamelit Series from the pen of Vasilyev winner of the Best Book of the Year!

Welcome to the Land of Fayroll where full immersion virtual reality gaming doesn't just exist, it thrives!

Tasked with a new assignment, journalist Harriton is given explicit orders to write a series of articles on the Virtual Gaming World of Fayroll and its developers. Harriton grudgingly accepts the assignment but soon finds himself enthralled by the virtual fantasy world and its amazing quests, unpredictable challenges and nearly endless possibilities.

As "Hagen the Warrior", he skeptically enters the fantasy world where the thirst for success and vanity of high-level players in pursuit of legendary objects spills into the real world. Here, high-stakes bets are made on the success of the virtual characters. Events and decisions that Harriton makes in the virtual space as Hagen now start to affect his own reality.

"More Than a Game" will exceed all expectations of fans of epic fantasy fiction and online gaming.

His unpredictable character, perseverance and excitement draw the attention of powerful gamers and influential Moscow elite with a devouring interest in Fayroll's outcome. It is not long before he realizes that this fantastic world conceals many dangers. Will he be able to pass all the tests? Start reading now!

Andrey Vasilyev is a prominent and acclaimed author that writes intricately crafted, action-packed heroic fantasy and adult epic adventure. Moreover, he is one of the founding fathers of the relatively new, yet insanely popular, LitRPG and Gamelit genres that blends cyberpunk, classic sci-fi and fantasy.

low production quality

narrator/producer should have looked up the correct pronunciation for words such as scimitar. . .

Horrible narrative, avoid this book

I’m becoming a big fan of this genre, though this narrator has ruined the book. Extremely choppy dialogue, mispronunciations (Lich is pronounced Leech), some terrible accents, and the story has some misogyny and homophobia. The sound quality is at best fair. Don’t waste your credit.

The narrator....

Well Adrian needs some serious coaching on how to pronounce some of the more fantasy related words. I hoped that by the second book someone would have helped him out but no. he continues to screw them up time and time again.

Bit mediocre

I bit of a different type Story 4 the genre. it's casual attitude is its strength and weakness. what's most problematic is it's narrator. I don't know how many dozens of mispronunciations this guy did but it got into an epic amount. he's also just unappealing in voice. hopefully the producers make a change, I'll probably pick up the second installment regardless.

Story seemed good but the reader...

I gave up part way through due to the reader being terrible! lets mispronounced Lich numourus times fail to say MMORPG or stumble over other genre specific words.

what's with the homophobia and degrading women....

not very good,... story has potential but dialogue and performance are bad .. and a lot of homophobic statements and makes women out to be lesser beings. why are so many Russian novels like this

Objective review

The writer starts off the book with a few problems but he doesn’t have any escalation in problems for the protagonist. More like he goes for something and he receives everything he wants finding hidden things on every whim.

Plotline good, misogyny unbearable.

The title says it all. It has an interesting plotline, but the authors clear views on the role of women makes it too hard to focus on anything good in the book.

A Sad bad of cultrual slights and over used tropes

A Sad bag of cultural slights and over used tropes from a writer with the sensibilities of a coke-head form the 80's with none of the nuance and charm. just as bad a writer as G. Akella.

Lacklustre

The story seems really interesting, but unfortunately the performance puts me to sleep. He speaks in a drab monotone.
