    I really enjoyed this book. I have read a few LitRPG books and the twist this one took was a lot of fun. The book was well-written and progressed quickly without annoying lulls in the plot. There were some great battle scenes that left you cheering for the protagonist and it was fun to read about what items they found or were rewarded with along the way. There are character sheets and stat progressions throughout which seems to be common in this genre, but not so much so that it distracts from th I really enjoyed this book.

There were some great battle scenes that left you cheering for the protagonist and it was fun to read about what items they found or were rewarded with along the way. There are character sheets and stat progressions throughout which seems to be common in this genre, but not so much so that it distracts from the overall story. The main characters enter the game world by chapter two and the action pretty much continues straight through until the end. My favorite character was an imp named Bert. The relationship developed between her and one of the main characters, Audyn was extremely well-done. Their banter had me laughing out loud and added both depth and levity to the story. I also enjoyed and appreciated that the author went into the details of potion-making that the other main character, Evan worked on. The author really did a good job explaining those things you would want to know more about in a story without adding so many details that you get lost. Overall, this was a very solid first novel. I’m excited to see where the author takes the story in book two and will definitely be looking out for it.

    Perfect for the intended reader. Excellent addition to an under represented niche in the LitRPG genre. The author has said that he wanted to write a book his children would enjoy. Assuming that age group goes through YA, he's done exactly that. Although, I can see where this would appeal to anyone as an intro into the genre, or even those of us who could just use a break from the hard core, R+ rated LitRPG that is currently prevalent. Grulke does an excellent job of presenting "real teenagers" on Perfect for the intended reader. Excellent addition to an under represented niche in the LitRPG genre.

Although, I can see where this would appeal to anyone as an intro into the genre, or even those of us who could just use a break from the hard core, R+ rated LitRPG that is currently prevalent. Grulke does an excellent job of presenting "real teenagers" on the cusp of new adult status experiencing and reacting to virtual game experiences. Audyn's exasperation and not so pent up anger, along with Evan's frustrations with ADD, are to the point and recognizable. And the firm belief that the adults keep messing up their lives? Oh, yeah! Their IRL background makes their in game encounters reasonable. They don't suddenly morph into adult behavior with adult perspectives. I really think the negative reviews are rather troll worthy. I wasn't bored. It wasn't intended to meet 'epic' storyline standards. Just about anything LitRPG could be claimed to have "cut and paste" content found in other books. The word for this is tropes. "Copying", however, is a particularly nasty accusation and I found no evidence of that here. I've found paying attention to a dismissive review from LitRPGPodcast (LitRPG author Ramon Mejia) will most likely result in missing something worth reading from a new author. I watch for those and then hit "Read Now".

LitRPG if you're not familiar with the term stands for Literature Role Playing Game. Basically it is story is told through the lens of playing a video game. In this case the brother and sister have become trapped in a video game world without any memory of how they got there and in order to escape they have to complete their epic quest. They are assigned races and classes seemingly at random and it is fun to see them adapt to their role in the game, learning skills, crafts, spells, mastering classes while acquiring better weapons, armor and items while the dangers and the stake continue to raise inside the game and out. The characters are relatable, and I particularly liked some of the side characters and companions they meet along the way as well as seeing how the different siblings adjust to the mechanics of the game. The story is easy to follow - there are the quests each of the two siblings are engaging in and the occasional snippet of what is happening outside the game. We learn more about them and their plight as the discover it. By the end you come to see how they have grown and come to care about they world they inhabit as well as each other. Even if you are not well versed in role playing games you should be able to follow along. There are some twists relating to what is actually going on and while this volume does provide a suitably satisfying quest there is a definite sequel hook set up if you aren't ready to say goodbye to these characters just yet as well as rewarding re-reads now that you know what is actually going on. The narrator does a great job bringing characters to life, even small roles and uses several different accents as well as character voices. It was easy to listen to and I would be interested in hearing them read other books as well. If you're new to the LitRPG genre this would be a great starting point for you or your kids.

    This is a great book by a debut LitRPG/Gamelit author. It's well written and I'm sure J.S. will just get better as he grows his skills as an author. I won't post spoilers, just read for yourself.

While there are violent scenes and actions, the overall "feel" of the book is not your typical harsh LitRPG. The premise of the story was a little strange at the beginning; I wasn't sure what was going on or why they were being thrust into their situation. Once in game, the story gets good. Grulke splits the same experience through the perspective of the two different main characters; a brother and sister. Their stories are divergent, but culminate together in an epic ending that explains some things, but also keeps other story elements a mystery to build upon in book 2. While I felt the world-building could have been a little more robust, the action and story behind it all make up for this. I am definitely interested in what is in store for book 2. I would recommend this to any LitRPG fan, Fantasy reader, and also the YA reader.

    Definite LitRPG some good some bad This book is written from the point of a brother and sister switching between their stories. The issue is the author keeps switching all the time. It would be better for the story to switch after getting to a major point. There is a quasi reason that I can't say without giving a minor spoiler. The two siblings are on different sides of the starting point. The major focus is to meet up. Shenanigans happen that changes the course of events.

    My 12-year old son read this book and loved the way the book related to and included the RPG model. He also loved how the story portrayed different events and how the author introduced the main plot line for the rest of the series. He truly loved the book, the characters, and the plot and can't wait for more. He read the whole book in under two days.

    Ok, but could be better An ok story, but a bit amateurish. I'm not opposed to reading more in the series, but if I do, it will be because I run across them in the future in my wanderings. I won't make any attempt to track them down. Ok, but could be better An ok story, but a bit amateurish.

    Brother and sister are stuck i a fantasy world and try to reach each other and get back into reality. Their uncle is guiding them a bit. The discover skills and meet new friends. The background story arc is a bit forced but overall it is an enjoyable story. I had a good time reading it.
