Summary

The first arc in Morgan's Rise to Omniscience. Over 650,000 words in one convenient box set! 

This set contains books 1-5 of Rise to Omniscience, as well as the audio exclusive short story, "Beast Zone".

Morgan's life is not easy. 

Growing up on the streets of City Four, he is constantly shunned by the other citizens. Morgan doesn't mind being ignored. What he does mind, though, are the constant beatings from the city guards due to his friendship with Sarah, the city lord's only daughter.

Lord Simon wants him dead, but the laws of the kingdom are on Morgan’s side, and even the guards won't kill him just for being seen near his manor. Morgan’s time is running out, though. Lord Simon has deep pockets, and his last visit to the manor may just have put him over the edge. Worse, he is nearing his 16th birthday, and has yet to awaken any abilities. In a world where might makes right, he has never been one of the mighty. What will he do when faced with a life-altering decision, and just how will his decision impact those around him?

Warning: This book contains some profanity, gore, and content that may not be suitable for children. This book also contains GameLit elements such as stat sheets and a form of leveling and experience gain.

What a surprising book

This book drew me into this world and now I can't wait for the next book set!
This is one of the few books that the story is well written and flows so well. There are many unexpected characters that turn into show stoppers. I loved the way the author worked the story, the core characters turn into strong and unique personas. However the way the tie in to the next arc was accomplished is cold blooded.
The narrator did a fantastic job in bringing the story to life. They were able to establish each different character with their own personality.
All I can say is that I really enjoyed this book.
5***** plus

slow burn

started slow but as the books went on it really paid off and I'm glad I saw it through.

Underwhelming

Its worth mentioning I only finished 2 out of the 5 books before writing this review but I couldn't stand to listen to anymore of it so I have no intent of continuing this book any further. In short, I found the plot to be lacking. Its not uncommon to have a main character strung along by powerful antagonists now and then but this book literally feels like he is dancing to other people's whims and I find it frustrating and boring. The conflict and plot feels like I am watching a national treasure movie in that there are scripted times where the worst thing that could happen does and someone steps in at the exact right or wrong moment.

I could dismiss some of these issues potentially but as the books went on rather than ironing out my issues with the books they magnified. I didn't feel that the system and concept of this book was that interesting or unique and in my opinion it gets worse as it goes on rather than better.

I listen to a lot of LitRPG and I sadly have to say this is in my bottom 10% category as someone who has probably listened to 30-50 series at this point.

Saw that coming

unfortunately the end of Sara has come to pass. I thought he would absorb most of the core and collect another bauble. This was a somewhat different twist. Looking forward to book 6

Narration completely ruined experience

Struggled to finish, narrator's pace sounded hurried and voices were actually irritating. Story had promise.

Excellent work

Not a single person of color, asian or “brown” in fact the only black one is the final boss.
Hopefully it won’t be like that in the order continents.

MC is way to stupid


A 16 to 17 year old boy that grew up on the streets and he has no clue about flirting, dating or sex unless he has a mental disability there is no world that this would happen also while his friend Sarah is in the middle of being raped he casually decides to go over his stats their is so much about this book that is so dumb it's not worth reading even if it was free

Bad

I don’t think I’ve ever disliked a main character so much… The inconsistencies around his characterization cannot be covered by the umbrella of plot armors and plot holes. Still mind blown that I made it to book four hoping there would be some character development. I must be a glutton for punishment.

I honestly have no complaints

When the character was young, he want stupid. Flashback detailing the earlier life of Morgan were not chapter upon chapter of drone they were just that, flashbacks of Memory revealed by the magic of the well written plot. I was very pleasantly surprised as I have found few Litrpg authors who exercise this much skill in crafting a god like op character, yet still manage to instill that character with enough energy and irreverence to keep the routine. Cataclysmic battles more entertaining than gruesome. Not many authors that I have read can keep a description of a predominately bisected charcuterie more entertaining than gruesome. Will done. To the author: You sir, are Not now My Favorite litrpg author (v mahenienko still has that distinction) but since I immediately purchased 8 more of your books, you share my views if his skill in crafting a “single barrel worthy” yarn.

To the reader: these box sets are not just multiple sets for the purpose of length. I only listened on 1,2 and will likely Enjoy many details upon listening to this again. Buy the books…. You will not regret it.

PS author, you forced me to correct a misconception I had regarding a hydrogen bomb’s output. I wonder if in a previous life, you were a
Mechanical engineer? Thanks
