Publisher's Summary

When Aaron and his friends got sucked into the virtual reality game World of Ruul, they quickly realized the only way out would be to acquire all eight soulstones and beat the game.

Unfortunately, they've somehow managed to incur the wrath of the Skeleton King, an ancient warrior whose vengeance can only be quenched by blood and death.

Now, if they want to survive long enough to find those soulstones, they'll have to find a way to stop him.

    "good yo"

    finished it quickly, only disappointment was the class choice. I feel like every litrpg I have read is another necromancer/dk.

    "Could have been a good story"

    I'd like to preface this by saying I'm a former active duty Marine, and current truck driver. So when I say this author uses an excessive amount of profanity, I'm not someone who has never been around profanity. As my former master sergeant would say... "Boy, you need to buy a dictionary and learn some new words." He was an old farm hand from Texas.

    All of his characters quickly become the same inter changeable one dimensional character. No matter the book, setting, storyline or background.

    Plot holes, bad writing, one dimensional characters, skip this one

    "Litrpg new to me good for you"

    Ok this was a good book a little weird and a little funny it had good character development my favorite part was when the main character stopped whining and finally just accepted his fate and became the bad add his gear allowed him to be. Over all the game world is very reminiscent of the starter area of world of warcraft."This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    "nerd humor"

    I love how foul the rabbit's mouth is in the party. the humor is right in line with me and what I think is funny, so that is fantastic. really enjoy the way the characters of being written and found myself interested in the consequences of their actions. looking forward to more adventures in the world of this book.

    "great book"

    the book is great but I personally don't like hearing the stats of every single summoned monster it puts a damper on the action.

    Story
    "Entertaining and good for young "readers"-"
    Where does Soulstone: The Skeleton King rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Middle.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was interesting, like the general arc - some good original ideas in here.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Spoiler alert!:

    Final victory (of the story)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Honestly, I thought it was a bit needlessly heavy with language (curse words). Didn't laugh or cry about it, but did notice it. Foul-mouthed bunny (of destruction) aside, if shrinks are correct there are some seriously insecure people in here.

    "Just as good as the first book"

    Cipriano managed to make his world of Ruul more engaging that the first book with lots of great little details that were brought to life by Magill. His performance was flawless and was hard to not listen straight through at once. can't wait for thrle next book. Cipriano has something special with this series

    Story
    "A minus for grammar and a plus for plot twists."

    "Soulstone: The Skeleton King" is the second book of the "World of Ruul" LitRPG series and, just be clear, the story begins right after the events of the first book. If a listener hasn't experienced the first book then it's recommended that they do so or otherwise risk staying a bit lost in the details of this one.

    If the listener has experienced the first book then it should be noted right away that there was no attempt to really improve upon the experience during the creation of the sequel. The grammar is still terrible and we are still treated to lines like:

    "I just need a weapon or something with more spell power or something. "

     or

    "The king touched his chest, running one decrepit finger over the ages old wound in his chest."

    As for story and characters, there are a good deal of interesting twists and situations that hold up well until roughly halfway into the audiobook. Things dive a bit with the pacing when the characters attempt to start building a town's defenses, but it picks back up with a great conclusion. Overall, the plot is still surprisingly entertaining...well, with the exception of the character, George the bunny...if anything that character just keeps getting more volger and irritating over time.

    Anyway, this book is recommended to LitRPG or videogame fans who are really forgiving of grammar issues as long as the story has a bit of flare.

    Story
    "crossed the line, from my feminist perspective"

    The story is fun, the plot is fine, the action is good, though predictable. I enjoyed listening to this story, but cringed and felt a little guilty continuing past the points where the characters start talking about the 'busty non-humans' (the closest I can come without spoilers. seriously, are we 12 year old boys? we're not we're adults and there are ways to talk about humans and sexual urges that aren't degrading. I don't mind the hyper sexual rabbit, I think he's funny though I don't agree with using such misogynistic tropes as sources of comedy, I can get behind it because it's funny and it's a rabbit, when the characters go into watching the female getting a bucket of water dumped over her head or only imaging having sex with one if she had a bag over her head, I almost stopped listening. if you don't care about that stuff, ignore my review and enjoy, but I'm hoping that we as humans are past that juvenilia.
