Summary

A freak accident leaves childhood friends Aiden and Scarlet dead and stranded in Hazard Online, a VR MMORPG.  

They're pushed to the brink of their sanity as they awaken with the knowledge of their death and are thrust into an experimental expansion, which only further threatens to tear them apart.  

They ally with two young women who seem to know much more than they're letting on and an AI Overmind who offers them a deal. But perhaps it's better to let some secrets stay hidden, and sacrificing their humanity may be the only way to survive....  

Note: Contains explicit sexual situations, foul language, polygamy, and all that other goodness you expect in a LitRPG novel! Only for 18-plus, so listen at your own risk.

Great narration and solid plot.

So this is my first proper litRPG audiobook. I typically listen to straight fantasy or scifi.

The narration is excellent and he does great voices for each character. It all flows quite logically from one scene to the next and narrator manages to make each scene feel alive and real.

The story is good and the fight scenes are in fact very good, the style of writing does require some getting used to but became a non issue shortly into the book. The narration helps as well and feel I definitely enjoyed listening to the audiobook more than if I were reading the book off my kindle.

epic story

loved the personal struggles with adapting to the new reality of the MCs existence and the actual struggle with the girls nice to see a story with the girls not automatically accepting the other girls right away. cannot wait to get the second installment and figure out why the company is trying to pit friend against friend

Bad Game

Honestly as a gamer the biggest shortcoming this book had was the game mechanics. All the values were overinflated to the point they were ridiculous or meaningless, starting mobs with close to 1000hp, starting leather gear for 30000 coins, legendary gear a lvl 7 can use. All of this thing put together makes me think of Hazard as a very bad pay to win mmo and I'm not sure if the author has ever played a mmorpg game before trying to write a story about one. Even fantasy worlds need to be a little believable.
Next is the main hero guy, for someone who was once one of the games top players he makes some pretty stupid newbie mistakes and logic fails. One that stands out the most is a one on one duel with a legendary greek hero (sorry no spoiler) with an even more legendary weakness yet never once tries to capitalize on it. Then there's the main heroines, wow not one can be even closely thought of as normal. Psycho, nympho or sadists it's like a messed up neapolitan.
And lest the sex scenes, so juvenile I just fast forward through them.

First time listener

So this is my first audible RPG book and it was amazing. The narrator gets into character and does different voices for each one. The story was well thought out and well executed. My favorite character wasn’t in all of the book but he does have an important role. I’ll be looking for the next one for sure.

is this the author's first book?

It's really hard for me to say that I don't like a book. This one, however, was an extreme struggle. the writing and interaction between the characters was juvenile and unrealistic. I found myself after several scenes thinking about how ridiculous the interactions were. The premise is good and it had potential but it was clearly written by someone out of touch with the people they were suppose to be embodying. I believe books written in the first person generally don't read well unless you really relate to the characters - and in this case that's just not possible.
it is possible that the narrator is causing the disconnect but even the word choices are bizarre and not smooth. Anyway the story IS good just told poorly. if you can get beyond that you might enjoy it.

A Good Story!

This was a Good Book with interesting characters. I was happy with the plot and found it generally very interesting. It just needed to be tightened up a bit. I certainly will buy a sequel.

Wild Ride

Definitely not what I was expecting. It was written in the Russian style of gamelit novels, with less crunchiness than most. The character's emotions were completely wild and bipolar, but it was actually realistic for people who had just died and ended up in their situation. The MC got everything handed to him on a silver platter, but that was what tipped him off to the experiments the big baddies were doing to him. The plot was good and since we only lived about 3 days in the book it was more about emotional reckoning than moving through to a goal. Once I understood what the MC was going through I thought that his actions and his friends actions lined up with what could be expected, but each of these people is extremely flawed so don't expect societal norms. This book also has a lot of happytimes explicitness so don't read it unless you're ok with adult situations.

It’s a keeper

While I usually delete most books after listening to them. I’m definitely going to have to go back and listen to this one again. There’s enough action on and off the battlefield that you won’t even see the plot twist at the end sneaking up on you.

It’s a great shame on audible not to have book two ready for purchase yet.

Wow

Definitely a fun book to listen to. I also never saw the answer to that last question coming; especially with how he had reacted and talked.

I'll be looking forward to the next Audible 👍
