Publisher's Summary

Twelve players set off through the online world of Galactogon, lured by the game owners' promise of an enormous payoff. The question is, who will survive to tell the tale? Which of the 12 is a potential hero - or a traitor in the making? Which of them will defend the weak, and who will become the ultimate evil overlord? A knight or a coward? Each of the 12 will have to choose his or her path. Each will keep a poker face. But if the billion-pound prize calls your name, you can't conceal your choice. And you will do everything to lay your hands on it.

Story started out slow and Narrator voice ruins.

Bill Lord was a terrible voice choice in my opinion. While he ABSOLUTELY sounds like someone who is mostly friendless and only socializes online. I also could not get into the characters or problems

Ready player one without the 1980's

i was hesitant to purchase this. I love The Way of the Shamen series and did not think the writing style would work with sic-fi. I should never have doubted, great start to a new series.If you're in to litrpg this will fall into the top 5.

Umm unexpected

It was different then the one about the weird shaman/dragon but somehow it reminded me off him cause of his damn stubbornness.

Now that I said that it really does a good job of making its own world of the events. Really started getting into a third in anyway worth a listen for sure.

Narrator doesn't get it

Here's a story about online games, gamer culture, and tongue-in-cheek fantasy & sci-fi. The protagonist is a professional gamer - clever, resourceful, and charismatic with a sarcastic gamer sense of humor.

The narrator completely ruins this first person story. Instead of the sarcastic gamer personality the text begs for, we get this god-awful affectation with heavy aspirations that's better suited for a smutty romance novel than a LitRPG.

I love Vasily Mahanenko's Way of the Shaman series which had great narration. But I really struggled to get past the narration in this one.

Best Space Lit RPG there is

Really hope this series continues... it's easily the best in the Space Lit RPG genre and Vasiliy's Shaman series is one of the best Lit-RPG of all time.

Has potential but is poorly executed

Im not sure how much the translation has to do with it but i found myself bereft of repeatable charecters.

almost as good as The Shaman Way series

If you enjoy any form of mmo/rpg, the book will give you a very pleasant time.
