Publisher's Summary

If you had to choose between your life and your dreams, would you ever wake up?

Alan Campbell thought he'd gotten his dream job working on a revolutionary VRMMORPG with Osmark Technologies, until the project was canceled. He has one weekend to dive into an untested world full of intrigue, violence, and corruption to prove that Viridian Gate Online works, but the AIs running the game have their own plans for his soul.

Set a year before the events of Viridian Gate Online: Cataclysm, Viridian Gate Online: Nomad Soul takes you back to when VGO was just a game, or so it seemed.

Holy doodle!

I was a bit grumpy when this was published: I'm past ready to go back to advancing the main story line. But the book turned out to be full of twists and revelations. It's a more more complex backstory that fills out the world and how it came to be, and how Sandra and Osmark came to be who they are when we meet them. It's totally worth a credit. My interest in the side-quests has also been renewed. Now I want more!

vastly superior to the original VG story

wow, way better than the first VG story, wandering if that was more co author doing than original.

worth the credit. great Lit RPG with pleasantly done storyline.

Off to a really great start with this one.

Look...I like Viridian Gate Online, but dare I say this series within the universe is better than the original. I put it up there with The Land, Endless Online, Patch 17, Dodge Tank, The Dark Herbalist, Awaken Online, Dungeon Lord, and a couple other LitRPG series that aren’t quite as long, like Delvers LLC. You’ll notice the majority of those series have one thing in common; they all blend game and IRL together. I prefer that to “Woke up in a game. Whelp this is weird but I’ll just go with it.”

I think Hunter hit his stride with Nomad’s Soul, and if the rest of this series continues to move so well, I’ll definitely be checking out the rest of the Viridian Universe.

A Solid Addition to the Overall Story

Solid audio performance. The story was a great addition to the overall tale, but now I am curious as to how it will fit in with the present day narrative.

Very good book with a spin

I was searching for a new series. I had listened to VGO series and kept by-passing the rest wondering if the could be as good as the other I had listened to. I am so happy I did. I have listened to well over 1000 books and picken is getting slim. But every now and then you find one you overlooked.. I was pleasantly surprised by this one and I listened to it in one day. I am going to get book 2 now and see if it is as good... Thanks to D.J. Bodden and James Hunter for taking the time to help me escape real life. After cancer and chemo there is not a lot I can do but you guys helped jump start my imagination.. Thank you Tim V

Excellent Book!

I really enjoyed this book. It gave me an idea into how the world came to be. The main character was fun. I enjoyed his progression, though I do wish we could see more progression in the book.

I love this series!

This story is well written and fantastically performed by the narrator. It will suck you in and keep you wishing for more. I love the way the author describes the scene with plenty of detail but not so much that it takes away from the flow of the story. It doesn't have the big battles and most LitRPGs have but plenty of intrigue and drama to make up for it.
