Publisher's Summary

Will's life has definitely changed since that day he went hiking in the woods of Pennsylvania. He's discovered that reality is a lot bigger and stranger than he had ever imagined. Learning about the portals that link the infinite number of worlds opened his eyes to that wider reality. Learning that he was being groomed to become the Champion of a God in one of those realities was an even more startling discovery.

But now it's time for him to pay the bill for his recruitment. Just as the Gods on a single world fight and jockey for power and position, the older Gods from the many different spheres of the infinite play a much larger and more complicated game. The Goddess Aryanna has a quest she needs completed, and William and four other Champions are the ones tasked to do it.

What bothers Will however is what could a Goddess possibly need? And why would it take five Champions to retrieve it?

Not bad

I've finally finished both books and enjoyed them very much. There were time when you had to laugh at some of the things going on but it was still very good. I hope the author doesn't stop here I'm kind of interested in hearing more about Will or Wilma.

Excellent Book!

This is a nearly perfect book! The characters are interesting, the plot is marvelous and fully realized and the narration is excellent! Many twists and turns that kept me engaged and it was nicely tied up at the end! Excellent! I can’t wait to see where we go from here!

Insightful From Several Angles

This was a very well conceived story from many angles. I liked how it tackled a lot of different topics. And I'd like to clarify my rating. I deducted one star from the performance of this audiobook not because the voice actor did anything wrong but more because the editing was done strangely. The voice actor did a wonderful job and I would give him five stars. But whoever edited this together put in a lot of strange and unnecessarily long pauses when one person stops speaking and another person starts speaking.

I love this concept

There are few other books in this series and I checked those out as well. So far I really enjoyed this series, the characters are cool, the dialogue is believable, it has a great flow, and there's a lot of emotion in it. The narrator does a great job of having different voices for each of the characters and maintaining the same character voice through the series as well.

Great Book and Awesome Audio book

Where does The God Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the highest ranking audio books that I've listened to.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Will is definitely a favorite, as he's the MC, but also because he goes on adventures, and just basically does what a lot of people dream of doing.

What about Rob Shamblin’s performance did you like?

Rob's voicing of the characters really bring them to life and make listening to this book a fun time.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

An ancient secret lost, these champions mean to find.

High school drama of who was doing who. wtf?

Did not expect a story about going on a difficult quest by a group of god's champions to become a boring frustrating teenage drama about who slept with who. These are grown people acting like rabbits and if they don't get any they started throwing a fit. Typically don't mind this stuff in these types of books in moderation but when it takes equal focus as the quest/story (if not more) then it just gets tiresome. This got to the point were the quest just felt like filler in between the drama or simply there to progress the drama by adding some gimmicks. Overall a disappointment. Hell half way through i forgot what the hell they were doing and just didnt care anymore.
