Publisher's Summary

Welcome back. Ready to log in?

Get ready for more epic battles, legendary artifacts, and incredible quests in the highly anticipated second Fayroll story. As Harriton’s Fayroll articles spark interest and his career picks up, he remains Hagen the Warrior, but still, a lucky newbie who stumbles across a highly coveted "hidden" quest. He must save the four Dryad sisters. Starting with Ogina in the East, he haphazardly begins his journey on the Long Road East, only to realize that the game is starting to affect his real life.

He manages to come out of many dangerous situations unscathed; happily switching between two worlds, making new friends and facing foes along the way. However, Harry is also forced to pursue a real-life mission inside the game world that shows that the thin line between the two worlds is becoming much thinner. It is only a matter of time before he starts asking himself some difficult questions. What if his luck runs out? Or, more importantly, is he playing his own game or is he being manipulated?

He is going to find abandoned temples, visit the Cursed Village, fight the Serpent King of the Nagas, and deal with epic monsters, all of which is accompanied by clashes of swords and sorcery and epic clan wars in this epic MMORPG. Action and adventure are hiding around every corner just waiting to be awakened.

After Andrey Vasilyev's More Than a Game became an instant success with readers in Russia and worldwide, he continued developing the popular Fayroll series. According to many readers, The Road East, Vasilyev's second LitRPG novel, is every bit as good as his first, if not better.

The Road East not only develops the virtual reality of Fayroll but also the real world parts of the story much more than the first novel. It’s not just about new assignments, new employers or even a new girlfriend. The depiction of the offline world is now on par with that of the gaming world - a rare find in LitRPG and Gamelit books.

Vasilyev is certainly growing as a writer. His characters are becoming more and more rounded, dynamic and versatile - and even psychologically convincing. The author also continues his engaging detail and sharpness with almost cinematic clarity. The Road East is a gripping mix of dialogue and action, mixed with a characteristic sense of humor comprised of self-irony and mild mockery, never going too far, but adding color and flavor to the story.

Andrey Vasilyev started writing in his late thirties, because, by his own admission, “he ran out of things to read.” However after his first two books gained nearly instant critical acclaim, he gave serious thought to giving up his banking career and went on to become one of the top authors in the relatively new, but instantly hugely popular, LitRPG genre.

Good story....chapters 3 and 23 are swapped

These fayroll books are sort-of the quitissential Russian LitRPG. I find it pretty hilarious in its way. Should note that the production has some problems at the time of this writing: Chapters 3 and 23 are swapped, so that was a bit confusing.

great story, must read for litrpg fans

I discovered litrpg when I was no longer able to play mmo's any longer, this series so far has been one the most enjoyable to read and listen too. the story that takes place in the real world is enjoyable and a nice break from the game side with out overshadowing it. on to book three. so glad there is an audible version of these books as I would never be able to pronounce the Russian names and references, so audible goes first then I read the book.

Bad Narration

The story, while OK, is nothing special, the problem is the narration. The Narrator delivers the story with little emotion or emphasis, as if he were simply speaking while reading it for the first time. Often you are confused as to who is speaking because most lines are delivered quickly without variation as if from the same character. The Narrator gave me the impression that he was rushing through the story so that he could move on to something else. While the storyline was passingly interesting, the poor narration made this series not worth continuing for me.
