Publisher's Summary

Would you be prepared to work for free? How would you like to bust your hump for a large corporation 60-plus hours a week without a wage or a single day off for the vague promise of some mysterious perks in the distant future?

You'd refuse point blank, wouldn't you? But what if the job in question was playing a state-of-the-art fantasy MMORPG game? And what if this was the only thing you're really good at? Especially considering that your in-game partner is someone really special to you - and this person already lives a virtual life?

Knowing all this, would you consider the mysterious future bonus worth your while?

    "Definitely worth a listen"

    Engaging characters, interesting conflicts and a very cool world. I think that last point was the biggest draw for me, though in general it was a fun and relatively stress-free romp. The ending did fall a little flat, but I'm certainly eager for the sequel.

    "Solid litRPG"

    What happens when you are put into the worse class with the worst stats and your job depends on making it fun? You think better...

    Great story with a blend of R/L and RPG mixed in and an engaging storyline of a guy doing his best in a bad situation. Great for those MMO players who are not your standard golden triangle types and want a person who succeeds by his wits (along with some helpful misfits) Looking forward to the ongoing series very much!

    "Great"

    At first I was afraid that it might be boring due to the fact that it has two separate story's to follow but the two worlds mess beautifully in this particular story. Looking forward to the next book....

    I am a professional driver and therefore spend a lot of time on the road. Audible has been a great source of entertainment for me.

    "Enjoyed every moment!"

    For a five star review, I have very few words to say lol

    I was drawn in right from the get go by the two main characters, and how they used their combined skills in the game world.

    The secondary characters (RPC 's and NPC's working together....and falling in love?) were charming and fun.

    Many quests! A bit of a love story (very little, no worries lol) and ..... no cliffhanger!

    The narrator was fantastic. As with many male narrators, the female voices were not the best, but not squeaky or distracting. Just slightly less male sounding (make sense?)
    Each character had its own distinctive voice, and the narrator didn't mix them up at all as far as I noticed.

    Definitely recommend to any fans of fantasy:)

    "Well written"

    this story is one that draw many of the same themes of the LITRPG genre in to focus. Overall the story is really well written and beautifully narrated. It is as I would say worth your money.
