Publisher's Summary

Three days before his high school graduation, Jacob Milroy learns that the military draft has been reinstated. With a war raging on the other side of the world, he realizes that he might soon be thrust into battle.

But then a groundbreaking contest within the immersive virtual reality game, Solaria Online, is announced by its visionary creator, a man who has grand plans for the human race. The prize for four lucky winners: recruitment into the Mars Colonization Initiative (and exemption from the draft).

Will Jacob be able to assemble his dream team in time to compete in the first round of the contest? With so much at stake and so many players vying for the adventure of a lifetime, he'll have to rely on his wit and ingenuity to have a fighting chance.

Launch is the first book of an exciting new LitRPG series!

    "Awful"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Nobody. There were no redeeming qualities


    What could Ryan Koskey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Completely rewritten it. I enjoy the LITRPG genre and I've come to expect that the stories won't be always be great but this book was insultingly bad. I can't decide what was worse...the completely ridiculous and unlikeable characters or the godawful dialogue that they spew.


    Would you be willing to try another one of David Stifel’s performances?

    No. I've listened to him before and while he does have a good voice he is incapable of narrating a story. He managed to make an already terrible book worse.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Launch?

    Everything. There was nothing about this book or its narration that is salvageable.


    Any additional comments?

    I realize my feedback is harsh but I assure you that I'm not being mean for the sake of it. This book literally made me angry at how bad it was.
