Publisher's Summary

In the latter half of the 21st century, Alexander and his guild mates play Io Online for fun and to earn a living. It's the largest VRMMORPG on the planet, and the source of income that supports families around the globe. While completing a rare First Kill dungeon in hopes of epic loot, they discover that demons have once again invaded Io.
Given the chance to test a new experimental immersion system, the veteran players must give up their high-level characters and begin again at level one. As they work through the noob zone quests, they discover that the new immersion system allows them to play in ways that hadn't been possible before. Casting is faster. Movement more fluid. Even magic itself behaves differently. They quickly run afoul of a party of player killers and become the targets of an entire PK guild bent on spawn-camping them until they leave the game. War has been declared.
The fight expands into populated areas, where innocent citizens are murdered, and player accounts are terminated. The guild works to help citizens rebuild what has been destroyed, but are repeatedly forced to stop and defend against enemy attacks. After the gods of Io and a powerful being of darkness get involved, Alexander and his friends learn the hard way that their in-game actions have consequences, both in the game and in the real world.
Soundbooth Theater has had the honor of working with Laurie Catherine Winkel once more, in the first installment of the epic Greystone Chronicles. Her bright and light performance matches the tone of this Gamelit romp about friendship and community, while perfectly framing Jeff Hays' performance as the male cast.
The Soundbooth Theater team for this production:

Laurie Catherine Winkel - narration, female characters, and Fibble!
Jeff Hays - male characters
Dalton Lynne - proofing, editing
Justin Thomas James - production, editing, mastering

another masterpiece by soundbooth theater

An amazing story written by Dave and brought to life by the greatly talented Laurie Catherine winkel and Jeff hays. This is one of those audio books you can't pass on its that good. Dave did such an amazing job writing the story and creating loveable characters that want to help as much as they can and the talent at soundbooth theater made them come alive in ways unexpected.

I can't recommend this enough. I love the plot and advancement of the MC and his guild and the mysterious fibble.

If your looking for an adventure that will suck you in and make you want to go haring off on your own, then this is the book for you.

Privileged and Honestly Unfair VR

Every aspect of this game has a hightened sense of privilege. From the vip accounts to the beta pods, loots, relationships with high level npcs and even the games AI , custom skills, rich in real life, Mary sue level education, great parent, supportive friends, so called disease ( which you know he will get cured from) gives in game pain resistance?, mothers death gives in game motive to kill and imprison normal people and then gives them 1 year jail terms while they accept it, tearfully saying thank you?

The author tries to cover all these up and many more things by being self aware and trying to do good things but I simply found myself zoning out for a couple of minutes and not feeling the slightest bit regretful as most of what happens in the novel could be easily summerized into bullet points.

It also tries to make some allusions to lotr but fails in my eyes, lotr is about a journey while this is about getting stronger and winning and reacting to winning. mixed motivations and the fact there is literally no drawbacks in the entire novel with nothing new or interesting that I haven't seen before is the reason for the score.
also they talked a lot about roman gods yet they didn't put any of it in The game?!?! The narrators did a great job, but that's the only saving grace for me.

I’ve read the book and it was great, got the audio book purely because of Jeff hays input and he didn’t let down. Laurie winkel is also a great narrator and will be joining my list of favorites. A fabulous and fun listen that brought a great book to even greater heights! I look forward to listening to the next books.
