Publisher's Summary

Glenn, a college sophomore, has a Sociology 102 paper that requires spending time with an unfamiliar group or culture. Luckily, two hot girls from his class have the same idea: Attend the university’s game club to get reaction material for their papers.
A creepy game moderator shows up, ready to start a game of Monsters, Maces and Magic. Glenn doesn’t fret over the GM’s disturbing vibe, figuring it’ll lead to potential fodder for his paper.
Moments after rolling up his character and beginning the adventure, Glenn, his two classmates, and three other players are drawn into the game - literally. How and why they got trapped in the game, transformed into their RPG characters are important questions, sure. But simply surviving a world filled with horrific creatures, unknown magic, and perilous roads is first on the list.

When A Dungeon Master Takes a Creative Lit Course

This thoroughly entertaining sword and sorcery adventure takes a group of RPG gamers and throws them into an alternate universe where their adventure unfolds in live action (think Jumanji but in a quasi medieval setting). When one of the party is killed in a battle, the rest of the adventurers must undertake a quest (or two) to earn enough credit to have her resurrected.
I think every RPG player worth their salt has, at one time or another, wondered whether the could turn their latest campaign into a best selling novel, and this book, it appears the author decided to give it a shot.
The story is well written, the action is very fast paced and the adventurers go from one challenge to another, some of them funny and others deadly serious.
The audio version is well voiced, easy to listen to and follow.
All in all, this one was an enjoyable story.

Fun start to a new series.

Outpost is the first book in the Monsters, Maces, and Magic series, and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'd really call it more a traditional fantasy novel than a true LitRPG novel. Actually what it reminded me of most was the old Dungeons and Dragons cartoon show from the 80s, with real characters getting sucked into a fantasy world. Now I know you saying, wait isn't that what most LitRPGs are? Yes and no. The characters in the book do get transported into fantasy world full of magic and mythical creatures, most of them becoming said mythical creatures, but the traditional LitRPG trappings of hit points and the like are only lightly touched upon. Regardless, it's a fun story from start to finish. Good characters, engaging story, and I definitely look forward to seeing what comes next for our adventures.

This is the second or third book I've heard performed by Jonathan Waters and he does a really good job of bringing the characters and story to life.

I received a copy of this audio title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.
