Publisher's Summary

A new series in the New Era Online universe from the author who brought you Life Reset!

John Slater never had any interest in video games. Now he’s got to beat one to save his brother.

A battle-hardened, ex-special forces soldier, John was never a fan of games...unlike his brother. But now, he’s got to learn and learn fast if he has any chance of saving his younger sibling. Magic, monsters and levels are new to him, and his real-world skills aren’t as useful as he thinks.

Lucky for him, he’s used to adapting on the fly. And soon, the world will know why his squadmates called him Seraph, the death angel.

Note: Events in Biomancer happen after Life Reset. However, the two plot lines are not directly connected and can be listened to independently.

Luke for the Win!

To be honest, I’m on the fence…. Performance 10/10 Luke is top tier in his field. Story was good but it’s build up was unrealistic in the first couple of chapters of the book. Not enough back story. Story felt like mmmmm it’s missing suspense for me. Don’t want to give away spoilers. Loved the last series and want to love this one and I hope the next book opens up to the real world and game world mixing more.
Love the narration of the AI’s hopefully more of the snark and crazy!

Great new offering from a great author!

As a big fan of Life Reset, I was excited to listen to a new book by Shemer Kuznits, and I was not disappointed! The writing is excellent, humorous in places, and just an overall great story for fans of the genre. The new MC, Seraph, is a funny guy, if slightly sociopathic, but that’s an important part of the story. The pacing is really on point as well, and I felt that the story had a satisfying conclusion, setting up for the next book. I also really enjoyed Luke Daniels’s narration, he’s a very talented narrator and the voices he gave some of the characters had me in stitches at points! If you’re a fan of Life Reset, or just LitRPGs in general, give this a shot, it’ll be worth your time!

Return to NEO with an old RTS flair!

Another great work from Shemer Kuznits. We revisit NEO after the events with Oran. A man trying to save his brother. Which is a great premise to begin with. The cast, setting, and storytelling are all great. I’m also really glad to see my favorite faction from an old RTS i loved come to life in this story in its own unique way.

Shemer has another great book, worth every exciting moment to listen as Luke brings the characters to life in fun and exciting ways.

Not a great spinoff of a amazing series

This book was ok, good concept, I really only have two complaints. 1. The MC is the dumbest character I have ever seen, I just can't, he really is the worst. I get he is not a gamer but come on, nobody is that dumb. and 2. The Author made a huge mistake that I don't understand how it got published with such a in your face mistake. He should be 4 levels stronger than he is by the end of the book. It's been a while so it could be 3, that's besides the point. I don't get how you could make that mistake of giving him levels on 3 different occasions and forget by the end of the battle how many levels you gave him. He would have been able to handle all the scenes differently if the Author would have not weaken him after every battle. I guess I could look past just 1 mistake, but this happened on 3 different occasions, 3 different fight scenes, 3 different chapters. This is ridiculous and I am very sad to give up on what could have been amazing. That first series was just so good and this just feels like it's not even written by the same person. Just disappointing.

Author Read God's Eye By Aleron Kong

And didn't grasp that the "One man on an island solo playing LitRPG" is the absolute worst way to write a game lit story.

Meh

This is a spin off from the Life Reset series which I enjoyed in particular the early books were very good. When that series ended it was fair enough it had a kind of finality to it and I don't think it really needed a re-boot. However when I saw this I thought I'd give it a go as I say i like the series.
I would describe my feelings about this book as underwhelming. I can't really say it's bad it's just not good. i found my mind wandering when listening as it was a bit boring in all honesty.. I can't say if I'll continue with the series or not but if book 2 is no better I'll call it a day.

Excellent Beginning

A brilliantly written predictable story with an expected outcome which makes me look forward to part two.

Monotonous

Main characters choices always come across as childish and forced, so that events can unfold.

I'm disappointed

I loved the original series. So I hoped this would be just as great. Unfortunately it was not. I had a really hard time finishing this book, but i kept hoping it would turn in to a great story, it didn't.
The story is soooo slow, and very little happens. 3/4 of the book is a detailed account, on how the main character goes out, and kill animals to level up again and again. It is just to much of the same

Lovely rendition of a great book

Not a massive fan of Luke Daniels (just about every other character has an insane quaver to their voice) but in this darker setting it mostly works so it didn't distract from the excellent story.
John /Seraph's story is both what you'd expect and very much not, which for me is a great balance. You never want to much really unexpected stuff (its stops being creative and feels random eventually), but you never want it to be too predictable either.
Love this and highly recommend, both to new comers to NEO and old dark touched hands.

Return to NEO

was good to hear another story from NEO. I have enjoyed listening to the previous series. It is a smart move to make it a new story that doesn't rely on the old one. Not because I had any problems with the original but it allows Shemer more flexibility with where he takes this one. Looking forward to book 2

Fantastic extension to this series

loved the characters. can't wait for books two. One improvement that could be made is using more than one narrator.
