Epic

So I've read the books up to this one but I cant go back to reading it!!! this Narration by Nick Podehl has spoiled me so much that i wont go back to the voices i gave each character...... I cant wait for the next book and i urge anyone and everyone who reads this to buy this Series because you will not regret it!!!

Straight up awesome

Okay so a few days ago I downloaded book 1 of this series. I have been unable to write a review because I could not stop listening to this series. At the end of this book binge (#bookbinge), all I could think was good lord when does the next one come out. This is a magnificent series that really plunks my loot string.

Very Good

This is a great book that I loved listening to and had a very fresh feel compared to other fantasy novels I've read.

OBSESSED

I had this series in my 'to read' list for a good while, but I kept putting it aside and choosing something else because I don't play RPG games and I assumed I wouldn't understand or enjoy it much. But, I WAS SOO WRONG. You guys, this series is so fun! Just a couple of weeks in and I am already on book 5. I cannot put it down! Book 1 is amazing, but they keep getting better! The story is packed with action, not drawn out and wordy. Where I am at right now in book 5, the main character has only been in the land for 112 days. Book 1, 2, and 3 cover only about a month of time in the story! In such a short time, so much happens. Not a dull moment! I don't know what I am going to do with myself when I finish the last book out right now, but I fear I will have a repeat of when I finished the Kingkiller Chronicles, where I go through the first 100 pages of about 20 new books and then put them down because they just don't compare. Books this amazing will ruin you for a while... I am sure some of you know what I am talking about! Luckily this amazing author writes his books incredibly fast (I want to say he wrote all six in like 18 months or so? Could be wrong.) so book 7 will be out soon :). I find it incredible that Aleron Kong can do that! He is an Indie writer with no publisher, who wrote, edited, formatted and started selling on Amazon on his own. Much Respect!! I will add that I don't understand some of the negative comments. A few are complaining about all of the status updates in the book. That is what makes litRPG!?! I love the status updates. I find it fun to think about how the main character chooses to allocate his points and then compare his decisions to how I would do it. It adds so much character depth because you literally have quantitative data showing you how he is growing/changing in just about every way! Some people don't like the dirty humor, either, and they find the main character to be some sort of pervy womanizer. I find it hilarious! It has been a long time since a book has made me literally laugh out loud, and I can't count how many times I have lol'd while reading The Land! Some parts of the book, I'll admit, are shocking. I will be reading and thinking, "no way the author will go there".. and then.. he goes, and passes "there" lol. But I think the books are better for it! Those are the scenes that are the most memorable! (the assassin scene, yikes! lol! Kong thought of the worse way to die and made it even more terrible!! haha!) Anyways, I could go on and on about my love for this story, but I'll wrap it up. For anyone on the cuff about this one, just do it. If you enjoy audible books, get the audible. I got the audible because I was so into the book that I wanted to listen to it while driving and doing house work. It is the best audio book I have ever listened to and the man who reads it is my new favorite, hands down. Overall, I am obsessed with the Chaos Seeds story and chances are you will be too. This series has everything I love about the fantasy genre, but at the same time, it is so different, refreshing, and new. When I can't stop thinking about the story and characters, when I want to read/listen whenever I have spare time, and when I am telling everyone about these books in hopes that they will read it too, just so I have someone to talk to about it..... this is how I KNOW it is a good story.

fantastic book and superbly narrated

I could not wait to get back into my car and drive so that I could listen to the book. if you like a good romp, and you enjoy an excellent storyline then this book is for you. the bonus, is how the story swallows you into an immersive experience that surpasses any RPG game.

Excellent

I work as a truck driver so my Audible is going every second I'm on the road. This series was recommended to me by a friend. This is the first series I have listened to not only when on the road but when I'm sitting at home as well. I've played RPG games and D&D (my father began this with V1) since I was a kid. This series takes me back through several of our sessions played.

For lovers of incest and beastiality

Upon listening to this book you will learn many things. The author loves repetition, copy and paste, incest and beastiality. The author has limited imagination and often repeats the same scenario again and again albeit in a slightly different location when he is not just coping and pasting. The author is obsessed with sex but clearly shows a lack of any experience in his writing. Every character has more or less the same personality and all use sexual innuendos as often as possible. All characters male or female throw themselves at the main protagonist for sexual desires and worship including the royal families. Female characters are portrayed as old fashioned stereotypes and appear to only exist in this book for bowing down to the sexual desires of their dear lord.

Another Success

I often find it hard to describe to people why I love these books. But the level to which I get hooked is worrying. I normally have 4 or 5 books on the go at any given time but everything gets sets aside the second the next Kong books comes out. Twitching for the next one already!

Struggled with the passage of time in this book. It feels like some of the timelines on task durations do not add up correctly.

Rts meets rpg meets a great story, magic happens

When rts, rpg and a great story meet up over a few drinks, add a little magic, then this book series is created as a love child of Aleron and Nick!
Great characters, great quotes, great humour, great action, great mechanics, a bloody great book.

yet another fantastic storie

loving these books, gets better each chapter 👍👍

I like how this one was more based around growing the village rather than bulk random battles.

don't want to wait for the next audio, going to have to start reading haha, but Nick Podehl really is one of the best out there, truly keeps you hooked.

these two make a perfect team

Funny book. I've read/ listened to alot of books and Aleron Kong is awesome.
He just captures the litrpg world and characters in a different was and its great. Binged read them all.
Nick Podehl is also a amazing reader and voice goes with the characters and book so well.
