Publisher's Summary

The year is 2245, and the world has undergone explosive growth in multiple industries. The age of Virtual Reality came long ago, opening up new fields for people to enjoy and seek employment. There were even those that chose to sacrifice their physical bodies, becoming digital existences that lived within Internet communities.
But with the age of VR, everyone still dreamed of that next step, the next level of adventure. And after 100 years, it has finally arrived. The first consoles, known as Seeds, are mass distributed among the people, with such realism that they no longer qualified as a Virtual Reality, but as an Artificial Reality. But what happens when things become too real?

All game mechanics, no story

Two hours in, I have to stop. It's all game mechanics, no story. Kept waiting for an actual story, with actual characters, to start, but I'm having to draw the line.

Here's my two cents...

1) Story mostly focuses on MC and Game Concepts
2) There are emotional connections but so far absolutely no romance
3) A lot of grinding, but realistic character development and no deus ex machina powerups

(That means no cheating the system because usually game devs ban you for that!)

4) Main character is essentially a Druid + Technomancer in space and reminds me of a Jedi
5) Subtle personal growth of the main characte and they don't start off a COMPLETE idiot

If you can handle that then get this book, this is a LitRPG meant to be enjoyed by someone who likes RPGs, more specifically MMOs, AND enjoys them for the story and satisfying character development. (Wouldn't hurt to be a general Sci-Fi fan as well)

Everyone else go buy something else, to each their own.

A little of everything

loved the book, it had elements that made me fist pump the air.

Jeff Hays would have done a better job in performance but I got used to the Narrator soon enough.

This is 100% recommended to anyone who even remotely likes litrpg.

A dam good story

as the title this is a dam good story but If I was to make one comment it would say it was a little lazy by overly stating ranks and points etc
other than that it's a truly immersive experience
