Publisher's Summary

Punished for his toxic online behavior, Chad faces a 30-day sentence of full-immersion therapy designed to improve his anger issues. For his endless trolling in real life, he's forced to play the most hated race in Isle of Mythos so that he can finally experience what it's like to be on the other side. 

To make matters worse, the heroes sent to rid the world of evil aren't heroes at all - they're violent felons on their own twisted paths to redemption. 

Now, Chad must survive his one-month sentence in a world where anything goes.

Full Dive VR, where you're the "bad" guy

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I loved this, the full-dive VR concept is becoming a bit of a troupe at this point, but it works extremely well as a basis for the main character knowing things they shouldn't. No time travel, new world, nonsense, just a smooth explanation.

Getting on topic, the main character is sentenced (literally by a judge) to sever time in a VR simulation. The idea is to use VR to rehab criminals, the main character is barely a criminal (I enjoyed the direction the author took here), but ends up in the VR anyway. He's stuck as the most hated race in that world, a troll. There's a healthy mix of gaming, fantasy, and enjoyable characters. There are a lot of chances for this to be pretty comedic, but the author plays the situation straight, and I think that really helps the story. There are no forced jokes, everything progresses in a way that makes sense (in a video game world anyway). Given the ending there almost has to be a sequel and if it holds up as well as the first this will be a series to get invested in.

This is the first time I've listened to Eric Martin, and he did an excellent job on the voices. Making them feel and sound like trolls must have been tough on his voice after a while.

TLDR; If you like fantasy, and particularly the out of time/world genre, you won't regret this one.

Troll Power

This book is a pretty good Lit-RPG. It is one of the better ones out there and a good idea. The main character is likable and even though he has done bad thing in the real world he is good and kind in the virtual. I really like how the character evolved in his class and skills and spells. I recommend a listen as it is one of the better Lit-RPGs out there.

Good Story

I haven't read/listened to a lot of LitRPG books but I really liked this one. The plot was straightforward but had complexity and I enjoyed reading it.

I weep for the future if we can be imprisoned for our words. Other than that very nicely done all around.

One of my favorite LitRPGs.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. I loved it. I've listened to dozens if LitRPGs and this is one if my favorites. I was hooked from the second I heard the premise and it just got better and better. I will impatiently be waiting for a sequel.

Long live the troll

Fantastic job of bringing a rarely used character type into the realm of the hero. was very impressed with how the book flowed and gave me a new respect for trolls. Eric Martin did an excellent job of giving life to the characters. I received a free copy of this audio in return for an unbiased review.

Trolllololol

Great book. From concept to characters. The author makes every character different but still likable, and even the 'villains' are understandable. Everyone has motivations and personality.

The story itself is fun and I really look forward to more in this universe to find out what happens next to my new favorite Troll.

I saw a complaint about it being SJW but I don't see it. I say give the book a try I bet you'll like it, don't let that one complaint stop you from giving the book it's fair shake.

Awesome Story

Awesome story from a different perspective. A beast that tries to be a hero. Story was amazing . Voice acting was okay. But once you get a couple hours in it's hard to turn it off. You want to know what happens next. Recommend Definitely
