Publisher's Summary

They say only fools enter the tower....

All Max wants is to become a climber and search for his long-lost sister.

But citizens aren’t allowed to climb - they aren’t even allowed remotely in the vicinity of the mysterious and magical tower. Plus, even if citizens could enter, it didn’t change the fact that Max’s body is paralyzed from the waist down, confined to a wheelchair. No way would anyone let him enter the tower. Ever.

Yet one night, everything changes, and Max’s world is thrown upside down. He suddenly gains an ultra-rare ability and the chance to train and climb the tower.

But being a climber isn’t as easy as it sounds. Each floor of the tower contains vast worlds and deadly, magical monsters.

While Max may want to ascend to the top of the tower, there are plenty of others who want to as well, many who won’t blink an eye at removing anyone who stands in their way....

Tower Climber is the start of a brand-new LitRPG/progression fantasy series by Jakob Tanner, best-selling author of Arcane Kingdom Online. The story contains RPG mechanics, stats, and ranks as a form of power progression.

What a ride!

This book reminded me a lot of an action anime but I mean that in the best possible way! The MC had to climb from adversity and fit in and be respected in a new world meanwhile uncovering a mystery and aspiration. It all just hit right! The worst thing about the book is having to wait for the next one 😆. Jakob did awesome with the Arcane Kingdom series but THIS one is going to be my favorite by far.

very different climber book

given that the MC only climbs a very limited amount of floors during the book, it's not typical of the genre...
it is however very well written.
it has a slight tendency towards YA, but that comes mostly from the fact that most of the main cast are late teens than anything else.
it's a interesting start to the series and if you like climber stories you should definitely check it out.

Steve does a great job with the voices and I was especially impressed during the final chapters (hard to say without spoiling)

Story is pretty Juvenile

I was gonna say it'd be a good read for young readers, but then I realized there's a good amount of murder in this book so from that view point the book is not meant for kids.
If he's writing for adults, then it's pretty terrible.
Also, same goes for the narration. If the book was meant for a younger audience then the narration would be awesome. But, if all of this is meant for adults it's insultingly childish. I guess he's working with what the author gave him, but still.
Overall the premise is cool, and the world is interesting, but I think it could've been a whole lot better though.

fantastic tower gamelit!

great story and narration!

MC is a handicapped orphan who dreams of climbing the mysterious tower that came to Earth approximately 40 years ago. Picked on by bullies and the head of the orphanage he must find a way to make his dream of climbing the tower and finding his sister come true.

Steve does a great job with the narration and really brings the story and characters to life!

I really enjoyed this audiobook and can't wait to find out what happens when the next one comes out!!!

So I'm 60-40 on this book.

The story in large is both interesting and unique and overall is flowing and not too out there, however and to my disappointment the ending to this book was very bland the opposite of the rest of the book a lot of it really did not make any sense and was full of plot holes I mean come on people were told to watch the main baddy and come on some one should have seen somthing ugh. Likewise, it seemed like the character took stupid pills and the rules of the powers seemed to change the last part of the book felt disjointed and thrown in. All that being said it was a fun book in full but just disappointing is all.

Brilliant start to a series

Loved listening to this ! The little bit of back story at the start was just the right amount for me. Not too much that takes too long, and not to little that you don’t even care about it. Good character development, narrator done a great job and just enjoyed it overall. Only thing at times for me is it was a bit too much in short dialog “said (insert any character name here)”, but I completely understand why I recognise it more when I listen rather than reading so can’t hold that against any author. Hopefully Jakob is working on the next one and it will hit audible ASAP.

Climbing author

This book has effort written all over it. Achieving this level of balance between story and the numbers so sought after in a LitRPG is commendable.

I can't wait for the next book!

Climbing the Tower

A great start to a new series that captures some of the best parts of the genre and moves along at a decent clip - a great listen and can’t wait to see where our mc goes next.
