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.

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

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.

Excellent, addictive

Where does The Land: Swarm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

top 5 possibly top 10

What did you like best about this story?

Depth of game mechanics

Have you listened to any of Nick Podehl’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not yet, i likely will based on the strength of these performances

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Too many to specify

Any additional comments?

keep them coming

love it

I love the story, keeps you engrossed from start to finish. only critism is that the use of analyse at times creates a repetition of the same information. This can be quite lengthy. but the action quickly makes you forget about that.

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.

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

Awesome characters and storyline.<br />

Loving the modern language and references. The lead characters frequently have me laughing or smirking to myself! each part of the series has me reaching out for the next! with book 7 fast approaching I'm hoping Aleron levels up his writing skills!

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.
