Publisher's Summary

November, 2042
It's been a busy month for 32-year-old Jack Mitchel:
Three weeks ago, he died.
Two weeks ago, he founded the first Faction in the ultra-immersive, fantasy-based VRMMORPG, Viridian Gate Online.
A week and a half ago the world ended, destroyed by a cataclysmic asteroid.
Seven days ago, he conquered the Imperial city of Rowanheath, bringing all of Eldgard to the brink of war.
Though Jack's Faction, the Crimson Alliance, has a tenuous truce with tech genius and Imperial lord, Robert Osmark, Jack knows it can't last. Osmark is devious and power hungry, and it's only a matter of time before he sends his forces to wipe Jack and his underdog crew off the map for good.
If Jack hopes to survive another month inside of VGO, he must find a way to beat Osmark and his army of bloodthirsty thugs, and a new quest - the Path of the Jade Lord - may be just the ticket. But this quest will be far harder than anything Jack's faced before, pushing him to his mental, physical, and moral limits. And if Jack isn't careful, his quest to defeat Osmark and the Empire may end up turning him into the despot he's been fighting against.

Enjoyable Romp through a Fantasy World

This was my first proper audiobook. I enjoyed the story, but the format probably isn't for me. Armen did a great job, though I do have some constructive criticism:

- Might want to work on your UK accent. Cutter and that Bradford accountant were changing by the word in some places. I'm not sure how to feel about the Chinese or Middle Eastern accents either, though I suspect that's a systematic hazard of audiobooks in general.

-Some of the tables were read weirdly. two headings followed by two entries, when it would make more sense to read it heading followed by entry. For example you read 'Type, Duration, Passive, 10 minutes' when it flows much better as 'Type, Passive, Duration, 10 minutes'.

Otherwise though, I can't praise this enough. Fantastic voice, amazing story (if a little clichéd in places, but so are most game plots so it works as canon) and brilliant for making the system feel well-rounded instead of just supporting exactly what the story is doing, a crucial aspect to LitRPG which a lot of authors don't take the time to fully do, as balancing everything when most isn't relevant is often seen as a waste of time. That really makes a story for me.

P.S (minor spoilers!) special shoutout for having absolutely no sex scenes because I listened to parts of this on my bluetooth speaker and that would have been pretty embarrassing.
