Really enjoyed the story

Loved all three books, easy to follow and keep up with. It’s rather predictable but if you just want an easy read/listen then give it a go.
Only down side for me was the American pronunciation of the word Duke as Dook, made me cringe every time. But don’t let that put you off.

Terrible narrator

This book set is meant for a young crowd, no plot twists, slow pace, no sexuality, and very little violence. Nothing surprising happens, and the narrator is HORRIBLE. The narrator's pace is really slow, he inserts commas where I assume there isn't one, all of his voices are to similar, all in all terrible narrator.

Why is every protagonist stupid?

The moany Hal whines about his disappointing life until a moany wizard cons him into stepping into the role of Protector on a second class RPG world. BUT! we know he'll defeat the foes because he's put a bunch of stat into luck. So, of course, that's the story. Yawn. er Double Yawn. Don't bother = really. save your credit for book on latrines.
So it's gotten to the point where I am barracking for the bad guys. This idiot MC is too stupid to live. I have always thought that an author's job is to engage the reader to the protagonist. Did I get that right? Engage - or did we mean enrage? I can't stand it anymore. I'm getting my money back.

Did not enjoy.

Overall, this seems like a YA series in that no-one seems very deep. As a LitRPG fan the spattering of numbers/stats/damage was too little to justify their inclusion. In my opinion, the author might've been better served to have made this a "normal" fantasy series. Overall the Luck mechanic heavily employed in the 1st book made me feel like there weren't any stakes for Hal. How many times can H & K banter about "just trust me" "you don't have a plan" etc. For me it was a drag to finish the series.

Book 1) Luck mechanic got tired.
Book 2) I enjoyed much more. Felt a little grittier.
Book 3) I enjoyed more than book 1. Wish it didn't feel so rushed. H mastering the magics with so little effort/growth just made the Mary Sue apsect worse. I think for me this book gave me hope for the author if he could have expanded his world or the trials to learn the magics.

I do not think I will ready anymore of this series...unless there is another good sale. I would recommend to a middle schooler within whom i was trying to bolster a desire to ready fantasy.

Probably good as a children’s book.

I stayed with it for an hour and a half, but finally had to give up on it. The dialogue sounds like what a child thinks an adult would say. It’s weird because it does not say it’s a children’s book, but I think it has to be geared toward a young audience. I can be entertained by Young Adult books, but not Children’s books.

Oh, and that narrator wasn’t helping any. Seriously, he puts odd pauses where there are no... commas. It’s like he gets to the end of the line on the page and pauses before... finishing the sentence that begins on the next line.

Terrible

This book is no good. No good exists within this book. I feel ashamed for purchasing it.

Amazing

The narrator was absolutely amazing. Easily distinguish between different characters. Kept me wondering what's gonna happen next. I'm hoping that they make a box set for the next 3.

Trust me!

Accidental Thief - Hal Dix was an unaccomplished man having no luck whatsoever. His wife Mona, on the other hand, was a successful account executive bypassing his meager salary by leaps and bounds. This only added to his misery and depression. With a three-day holiday coming up he stopped at a flea market hoping to find a new video game to play while his wife and baby visited her mother. At the flea market, he met Tildi who gave him a bootlegged copy of a new game called Fantasma. Once home, Hal loaded the DVD, entering Fantasma. Immediately acquiring a companion due to some unforeseen circumstances, Hal found himself involved in his first quest. Hal was amazed by the realism of the game and became engaged in his class as a thief. The tale continues with multiple quests and successful levels up. The plot progression is rather linear and predictable but is still exciting. As the tale continues toward the later chapters it gets better. Some of Hal’s skill decisions were questionable but it was his choice. I hope the next volume will be just as clever and unique.
Accidental Warrior – Hal was once again called back to Fantasma to discover what had happened to Kay. She had been on a mission but had not been heard from in the past four months. To follow Kay’s path east, Hal employed himself as a caravan guard but could not do so as a rogue. He was forced to change his class to warrior. Starting over at level one, he would not be able to use any of his rogue skills until reaching level eleven when he could dual-class. Onward to the city of Hyrah, the place of Kay’s last contact. During his journey, Hal learned of the prophecy of The Opponent. A great hero who would come from beyond the stars to Fantasma to help in their time of need against a great tyrant; the universal battle of good versus evil. Through deception, Hal finds himself in the Coliseum as one of the Gladiators and must find a way to escape. Contributing to his companions, Hal manages to escape with many of the slaves forming his army. Now it was on to defeat Baron Norak and his Imperial Army.
Accidental Mage – Hal returns home only to find his wife and daughter missing, along with a note from the Emporer of Fantasma requesting his presence. Hal retrieved the old game disc, and opened the portal, returning to Fantasma. Hal’s new mission was to become a mage to defeat the Emporer. With Tildi’s help and the three other remaining mages, Hal needed to learn everything they knew; a rather impossible task but this is fantasy fiction. Beginning with ice magic, Hal needed to get his magic on! There are five magic elements in the world of Fantasma; Earth, Fire, Air, Water, and the mysterious Spirit. As the mythical hero, Hal would have to master all five to complete the prophecy. The story is a quasi-LitRPG at best. The skill system and the remarkable level of advance are true fantasy in themselves, but they did tie everything together in the amount of time the author desired. All-in-all I did enjoy the trilogy, although the numerous stat checks were annoying. Roberto Scarlato did a fine job as narrator.

instantly fell in love with this series

This series was actually the first I had gotten in the litrpg space. it inspired an overall "dungeon crawl" if you will for similar content.

I exhausted this set, the remainders in the series and the later spinoff. It's content like this that has kept me an audible member for the last several years and led me to have 195 titles in my library... box sets like this counted as one of course.
