+++very good lit rpg book. I put the series off for a while because of the cover art which isn't that great. I know I know never judge a book by its cover.

I really enjoyed this one. The story itself was very well put together, with just the right amount of status screens not to clutter, well-thought-out characters, and a fair amount of behind-the-scenes worldbuilding for both the real and virtual worlds.
I especially enjoyed when I reached a certain juncture in the story, that, hopefully without spoiling anything, encouraged a bit of a split to the party, and contrary to my expectations, we just continued.
I was 100% certain we'd need one, maybe two books to find out what happened next, and yet there's no break in the story whatsoever. Something which flies in the face of rather a few other series in this genre that certainly seem to be pacing themselves to hit book #29 by next year, and something I definitely appreciated. Despite including so much in just this first book, there's still enough to make me eagerly await the sequel.
As for the narrator, I felt she did a great job. Going so far as to use a slightly different tone for the neutral voice depending on POV character and perfectly enunciating some puns that, whilst excellently written, would make a lot more sense to read than be read to, both are wonderful little touches that make the experience really feel polished and like a labour of love.
Overall, a great addition to the genre, and I hope to hear more from both Brian Simons and Andrea Parsneau as soon as feasibly possible :)
This is a brilliant fast paced story. The narrator does a fantastic job breathing even more life into the characters. The characters are endearing and have impressive arcs and depth. My only complaint is how short the story is.
