This world gets better with each book

This LITRPG world gets better, deeper and more well developed with each addition to the series. This one can be read as a standalone but you will definitely want to get the others as they are amazing plus they lead right into this one and provide great entertainment. The initial round of testing has been completed and the first group of real Players is being allowed to immerse themselves into the world. Our heroine isn’t a gamer and ended up here due to some “difficult” circumstances. There are those that wish her to succeed and those who wish her to fail. regardless of that. The world itself wants her to succeed. And the npc’s are very different than any other game world created. Can’t wait to continue the adventure in this world.

History never ceases to amaze

History is truly amazing. One of the most poignant aspects of this book is when the author tells you who was alive at the Same time and what was going on in the rest of the world. It truly allows you to put it in perspective. As well, just the simple fact of the event itself and the journey it entailed are fascinating. When one thinks of pirates and slavers, you think of the Caribbean, and Africa. One doesn’t normally think (perhaps my ignorance is showing) of Algeria, Turks, Europeans and specifically Iceland. The reverends tale also gives one a fascinating perspective on everything he sees from the point of view of his experience and back ground. Things we take as commonplace appear alien, etc. a wonderful
Bonus to the reverends tale is the inclusion of letters from the event and accounts of others who went through the same event. The ability to view the event from these varied perspectives gives one a much better grasp. Truly an enjoyable piece of history to add to my knowledge base. Enjoy.

Kid sensation and crew are back

This one is short but very revealing in some back story for both characters and groups in the kid sensation series. I don’t recommend this as a stand-alone read at all. If you aren’t familiar you will miss a lot. That being said. Go buy this one and the rest of the series! It’s a really good series! Think Sky high with more grit.

Fascinating! Urban exploration in the city of sin

What a truly fascinating narrative. The author sets about over a period of years the exploration of a variety of storm drains underneath the city of Las Vegas. Having never been there and only having been exposed to the Hollywood and literary fiction of the city I had absolutely no idea about the vast underground of drains that Vegas is built upon. The author gives a detailed narrative of his explorations, the people he met, the lives they lead before, now and hope to live in the future. Without a doubt his comparisons to other locals will lead you to do a google search and discover a whole new set of things to learn and read about. I’m always hesitant to try something by and author/narrator I am not familiar with in case I get stuck with a lemon. This was no lemon. This is a gritty and entertaining glimpse into a world I never new existed. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

Dinosaurs, time travel and Russians oh my!

So the world has been inundated with time. Bubbles that allow for people to enter into the past and basically “tour” the land and age of the dinosaur. What could possibly go wrong in a situation like this. The governments have all agreed that no exploitation of the past will occur due to the effects it could have on the here and now. Leave it to the Russians to start mining the past, and planning to use the portals as gateways to other nations for invasion points. A small band has been sent to the past to stabilize the bubbles and find out what happened. Will the Russians and the dinosaurs be more than they can handle? You’ll have to listen to find out.

A team of monster hunters lead by a werewolf

What a great series. Our hero is still the blue wolf and he has better come to terms with what he is and who that makes him. He has chosen to take up the offer to lead a team of monster hunters to make the world a better place and to eventually get himself cured. He finds himself paired with an old enemy and a group that isn’t what he thought it would be though it ends up being the perfect team for who they are and what they do. Great story, highly recommend reading the first book before this one as there are many things that will be lost to the reader. Enjoy it!

It’s like reading/listening to the tale of a wiseass Boba Fett

The series is great the whole created universe rivals that of Star Trek and Star Wars without a doubt. This particular tale of Roak has him seeking revenge. Roak always gets paid for his jobs, and he always gets his credits even if it’s from the cold dead hands of one who betrayed him. This time, there is no job. Roak is in business on his own for this one and burning through contacts like he never wants to be able to get any information ever again. Knowing Roak is now something that could cause your death. In this tale new characters are introduced and old ones develop into deeper beings or in some cases find themselves without any future at all. Great story and live the development of Roak as a being. Wonderful narration. All these tales can be read together for greater enjoyment or they stand well enough on their own as great stories as well.
