Publisher's Summary

Explore! Level up! Take over an entire planet, and take out anyone that gets in your way!

Against all odds, Val and his men have survived a savage assault initiated by a ruthless foe. But Val was forced to pay a steep price after taking out the enemy commander, a retributive curse that has every living Jordian eager to claim his scalp, including his own allies! 

Only Julia, a Terran half-blood like him, is immune, and there is only one way to break the curse. 

They have to charge into enemy territory, sneak past countless troops, and somehow defeat an entire clan of Highlords hungry for their heads. 

For Val, it’s not just about survival. 

It’s about revenge.

He is determined to take out the bastards who thought they could enslave his entire planet under the guise of a virtual reality game. And what better way to accomplish this than by seizing control of the very world spearheading the invasion of Earth! 

Val better act fast, using strategies no one ever sees coming, because the entire corrupt council of Jordian Highlords will stop at nothing to destroy the Terran gamer who dares to walk the Path of Kings!

Author uses folly way way WAY too much

This series isn’t a bad series, as long as you can handle extremely repetitive flowery descriptions of every single action anyone takes. The words folly and oblivion seem like they are used in almost every single sentence.

Also I would be quite ambivalent if Julia was just killed off already.

Going Strong

The series is still on a great arc. I like the buildup so far from a player to world builder. it really is a great accomplishment for a first series. keep them coming!

Great Series - Julia Is the 'Worst' Character

I loved all 5 of these books so far, but reaching this point I'm really starting to roll my eyes every time I know that Julia will be a part of a scene. Mostly because, since book 1, they all go something like this.

"Julia shouts, Julia cries, Julia sobs, Julia weeps"

I mean I know she's supposed to be the damsel in distress and all, but can she stop being so predictably distressing? I mean every scene with her is like nails on a chalkboard. Boo hoo. (not referring to the voice actress)

besides overuse of words like "Ape", the story is flat and the female narrator is beyond grating

Please just let this MC die!

I’ve come to truly hate this book. The main character goes to such torture and agony over and over. Makes me begin to believe that the author is a true masochist or maybe a sadist. For only someone like that would come to love to write books like this series. Each book in this series tries to outdo each other in how much torture pain and death it can introduce on the main character. The sad part about all of this is that the author is actually quite good at weaving words into a story, it is just too bad the story is so horrific.

wonderful

One of my favorite parts about this series is that everytime Valor gains a level it is different from the last. It is a unique twist of a classic element to litrpg books and I find it very refreshing.

The pacing of this installment is done really well and I think the last two books have really started to shine. I can't wait for book 6 and can only wonder what M.H johnson has in store for us.

Wayne Mitchell and Lisa Aust have really stepped up to their portrayal of the main cast and I hope to find more audiobooks with them as the voice cast.

All in all 5 out of 5.

Great story, challenging narrative

Listening to this is like swimming through syrup. The heavy, molasses-like narrative can be a challenge to listen to. It can become so thick and hammy at times. The information dumps are also painful, like the worst anime over-explanation for every little skill and character motivation is just tedious. Characters will go off on a tangent of congratulatory back-slapping and flattery in a clumsy attempt to explain another character's powers. Then there's the passive writing. It's like the author deliberately goes out of his way to avoid active statements. Wayne does a good job narrating, as usual, but the mispronunciations are pretty common. Pronouncing scintillating as skin-til-ay-ting is like nails on a chalkboard, and it he does it a lot. There are other, semi-frequent mispronunciations, but that one is extra jarring.

So why have I gone on through 5 books and will continue to listen if I'm just going to bitch and nit pick? Because it's a damn good story. The author does a great job of creating a MC with exceptional power but also vulnerabilities to keep him from being able to simply crush all before him. Having delved this deep into the story, there's no way I won't see it through to the end and be glad for it.

good

everything is in the extreme. nothing is nuanced. everything is commented on in the same over explicit way. and eveyone talks the same way. the different voices def help out in a major way.
