Excellent Book

I thought this was an excellent book with a solid storyline. Personally, my only complaint is that it was too short. I loved the story and really wanted more!

The book reminded me of the Divine Dungeon series, but with some major differences. The description provided is actually pretty solid. In a world where your consciousness can be downloaded into a virtual environment after you die (think almost The Matrix) a recently deceased soldier awakes to find himself already in the simulation. However, instead of reappearing in human form, he is in the body of a monster and in a cave that people will be coming from far and wide to try and conquer. Like many video games, the players and the main character must level up, make discoveries, make items, use magic, and hone abilities.
I definitely loved this book and hope that the author continues with future books.

The narrator gave a solid performance. I look forward to listening to him in any future books.

Decent Romance / Scary Story

This is an average scary story/romance audiobook. I liked the premise of the book and many of its elements a lot. I'm not much of a fan of romance stories, but the book description sounded good... So needless to say that I found the romance aspect a little dull. I also a few of the aspects of the story a little unbelievable. At only about 3 1/2 hours, I would have also liked it to be a little longer instead of carrying over to the next book. However, all-in-all I thought the story was decent and I would definitely recommend it if you like or don't mind romance books.

The narrator was good for most of the story, but some of her voices seemed a little ridiculous... She was otherwise a good narrator, but the voices bothered me.

Excellent and Useful Information

This was a really great book of practical advice and information. There were actually a couple of times that I thought the author was talking directly to me with some of the tips that I can see myself actually using in my day-to-day life.
I definitely recommend this for just about everyone.

The narrator was absolutely perfect. I can't imagine anyone could have done a better job.

Fast-Paced Thriller

There is definitely no lack of fast-paced action in this book. It definitely kept my attention. The description provided above was pretty good and accurate to describe the story.
Most of the characters seemed realistic and the story was good. I would mind reading others from the same author and maybe with some of the same characters.

The narrator was good, but there were a few times that he lost me. All-in-all he did a great job.

Start of a Very Different Series

This story was very different from the fantasy novels we usually read and told from a very different perspective than we are used to. The Audible description did pretty well with this book in summing up the plot of the book. It was a little on the short side, but that isn't necessarily bad. It did end in a cliffhanger, which I generally hate out of principal, but I plan to continue with the next book.

The narrator did a very good job. I hope he narrates any future books in the series.

Awesome New Universe

This audiobook was a great start to what will hopefully be a great series. The universe the author created was fascinating and I couldn't help thinking of Star Wars and other sci-fi stories with many different alien races.
The book follows an elite group of mixed soldiers who encounter more than they bargained for on a mission. I thought the story was great and the characters seemed real. I was really drawn in and couldn't stop listening.

I thought the narrator did a really great job with tone, pace, and all of the different characters.

Interesting Concept

This was a very good book with an interesting concept and new spin on a superhero story. I would classify it as fantasy but had more of a new-age feel to it than most magical stories. There was a bit of a love story thrown in, but I wouldn't call it a fantasy romance.
I'm looking forward to listening to other titles from this author.

The narrator also did pretty well and was a good fit for the book.

Creative Fantasy

I liked the writing style of this author and especially liked all of the magical creatures and monsters and the way the author portrayed them in the world created for this book. Great story with good characters and setting.

The narrator was perfect for this story and did a great job.

Good Story and Writing, But a Little Slow

I thought that the writing and story were good in this book, but overall I thought it was a little slow and I lost interest several times before coming back to finish it.
The plot follows an average age-old story of AI taking over and humans fighting back. Having been done before doesn't mean it can't be done again, but I did think it made the book a little predictable.

The narrator was above average, but not excellent.

Great Military Thriller

This was a very good military thriller. Another review said it reminded them of Clive Cussler or Tom Clancy and I couldn't agree more. The story follows that of a submarine and a SEAL team on a secret mission in Chinese waters. While on the mission, they make an astounding discovery and they are in a race to figure it out. I couldn't put this one down and thought that the story, characters, and writing were all excellent.

The narrator did a very good job as well. He was perfect for this book.

5 stars all around!
