Publisher's Summary

Barakdor, a virtual fantasyland packed with elves, dwarves, gnomes and trolls.
Barakdor, a world sliding helplessly to war. 

Lincoln wanted to be a warrior, a rogue or a mage, but he'd made a promise to himself, so he chose builder. He wasn’t supposed to play the game on his own, but now he wanted to build a legacy for Joan, a sanctuary in a virtual world. 

It was supposed to be a place where folk could come to get away from the terrors that the land held, a utopia he would create with his bare hands. It was supposed to be Joan’s legacy. But as the growling thunderheads of war gather, he begins to think it might be a last refuge. He begins to think it might be the land’s only hope. 

Fantasy collides with LitRPG in the the Land of Barakdor. The Legacy Builder is the first installment of Lincoln's journey. The Veils of Lamerell is the first in Alexa's game. Follow them both in the next book to be released, Hero Hunting

There is a balance, this is not it.

As much as I enjoy the LitRPG genre, there is a balance between story and interrupting the story with character/town status upgrades. In this book it is completely disruptive to the flow of the story. In combination with a narrator that seems incapable of distinguishing the multitude of characters through tone or accent causes this book to be just another in a list of mediocre LitRPG fully capable of getting lost in the crowd.

This is disappointing because the premise is good, and certainly worthy of expansion. Find a better way to present stats for audio format and get a narrator that is a performer instead of a reader and you have a reasonably good book.

Garbage

This is a very bad book with an okay storyline with terrible writing and even worse narration.

Needed a good editor :(

The story has potential. But dam both the written script and the voice narration needed a good editor. There was just too many instances where the charters actions or the plot, just jump, with no connection or explanation. I think with a bit more work this book could have been excellent, but it just left me disappointed.

I love builder stories

The start of the book is a little slow and off putting, but after that it becomes a great start to a town builder story.
