Publisher's Summary

Class-A Threat: The year is 2074. Alex is a 15-year-old student dreaming of a career as a space guide. He eats, sleeps, and breathes stars - but life has other plans. That's how Disgardium, a new online game, becomes his only means of reaching his goal.

Apostle of the Sleeping Gods: A Sleeping God gave you its power, but now demands absolute loyalty and obedience even in real life. Something called the Destroying Plague wants its Emissary to infect everyone alive and, as luck would have it, that Emissary is you!

The Destroying Plague: Scyth and his friends find themselves under the watchful eye of the preventers. But this is just one of many problems; the Sleeping God has another impossible quest for them. The old enemy Big Po thirsts for vengeance, and the Nucleus of the Destroying Plague prepares to take cruel revenge against the former Herald . . .

Resistance: The armies of the Commonwealth, the Empire, and the neutral factions, all the leading players and clans of the preventers, have been summoned under the banners of Nergal the Radiant to the sands of the deadly Lakharian Desert, to wage war against a most terrible enemy of all life itself-Scyth.

1 credit for 48 hours of content. Thank you!

I will just give the cons. I really only have one, and that’s the narration. Most of the voices are great, but the female ones aren’t really good. I know as a male, it’s hard to use female voices and still manage to present them as attractive to the listener, so I won’t ding the narrator too much. 3 stars is “Pretty Good” according to audible review standards, but unfortunately I can’t give him anymore than that due to the mispronunciation of a bunch of words that are extremely common in fantasy/LitRPG stories. For example, “Chitin.” A simple google would’ve corrected this. There’s 3-4 more words like this, but honestly I’m nitpicking. I love this series. I’ve already placed the rest of the titles in my wish list and am invested Alex’s adventures now.

Just a quick FYI: If you aren’t familiar with Russian LitRPG, they tend to be a little male dominated, and their culture (which differs from American culture) bleeds out in translation to english. Usually the MC “eye bangs” every pretty female he crosses paths with, having a loyalty to one girl, but popping boners at all the rest. You’ll also hear phrases like, “What can I say?”, which doesn’t tend to fit the scenario at times, but alot of that is the translation from russian to english. Again, if you’re a LitRPG fan, don’t wait as long as I did. ESPECIALLY because books 1-4 are available for one credit! That’s the only reason I’m glad I kept passing up this story. Worth the credit!

had to stop half way in

It started out mostly ok, dialogue felt a bit unnatural but I kind of assumed it was just the translation. Well... it doesn't get any better. The entire story continues to slide into Google translate levels of sense, sometimes it's alright, sometimes it's really bad. It became impossible to focus on the story.

Another big negative... I have no idea why the author has the MC interact the way he does with every girl in his life, maybe it's a other culture thing, but it's really annoying and makes it difficult to empathize or even like the MC alot of the time.

Skip this one.

Very Engaging

This box set was very engaging I listened all the way through in a few days I could not put it down and immediately bought the rest of the series that was available. The author encourages you to invest in the characters and want more. I would only say the MC is only a bit OP but that is par for the norm for these books and I can live with that. I love the magnanimous main character in how he disregards society's prejudices.

Author needs to learn to close some story arcs....

Agitated that it keeps getting more and more convoluted. I would of continued with the story if it would make real progression instead of just opening up more paths a lot not adding to the story. 48 hours of content but it feels like 90, due to all the time I just stop the story because I don't really care.... For instance someone needs money, he comes up with a way to get the money, something interferes with the money transfer, so he comes up with another way to get the money.Then they get the money. This is just a rough summary but it added to the story as much as the real event. There's lots of instances of this. Don't litrpg writers have editors?

What's so great about her?

Spoilers:




So Alex is constantly fawning over Melissa. I guess she is pretty, but her character sounds awful.

She abandoned Alex for being an egghead. She is horrible Eve, making fun of her weight. She wants nothing to do with Alex until she realizes she can use him to get ahead. She makes fun of Overweight's size. She ditches her entire friend group at the first chance she has at getting money.

Alex shows himself to be a horny idiot. His reasoning for not liking Eve is understandable, she is self-absorbed most of the time.

Overall, decent story beyond the above.

a little rough around the edges but still a gem

Great series, the characters genuinely feel like children as opposed to just narcissists which was nice rough edges that needed a strong suspension of disbelief for a topic here or there but overall fairly novel. main character is ludicrously OP but it's a built in system (being a fresh villain). hope they make some more bundles down the road.

A tough listen

So, this is a translation from Russian, and the language and culture bleed over poorly in most cases. The story is aimed at young adults or preteens. This means that the MC is entitled, stupid, horny, moody, and in most cases utterly unlikable. He whines because his parents can't buy him things. He treats his only friends like crap. He had an opportunity to better himself and did absolutely nothing instead. Then when he gets an edge over everyone, he whines more.

I think this one would be better or at least more relatable to a ten year old.

The narration is ok in tone, but he mispronounces words fairly often.

excellent narration, awful MC

this is one of the worst MC's I've ever come across. he flip flops decisions every he's pages, is terrible to his friends, thinks he's lost class even though class scaling is as high as his rich friend. I can't recommend this.

Great price on a great series

Expertly blending a dystopian world with relatable characters while mixing in bits of a “Matrix” like game world. Almost done with the fourth book and it just keeps surprising me while the story keeps getting better.

Surprisingly awesome LitRPG. And I'm picky!

I found it easy to binge this four-book box set. It's not perfect (see below) but it's a fast paced, action filled, entertaining read.

This is a translation of a Russian series, but if I hadn't already known I would have never guessed. The translation is absolutely perfect, and the story, while adult, lacks the usual Russian grim dark of these things. So just an FYI, you know, for people that might be worried about that.

The basic story revolves around a 15 year-old's adventures in a future where most of humanity source their entertainment and work prospects from a virtual reality game called Disgardium. Though he initially hates it, real life financial woes force him to start making effort in the game. He quickly gains a unique class and the story launches to the stratosphere from there.

One of the things I loved about this story was the mix of real and virtual world storylines. Usually I hate this sort of thing because the real world is just an add-on, but here the two mix perfectly, with actions in either having consequences in the other. The mix is probably maybe 85% game and 15% real world. It's done really well, and adds to the story instead of detracting from it.

The worldbuilding and magic systems are all very standard fantasy concepts. Dragons, monsters, magic, swords and sorcery, that sort of thing. The book has a novel twist in the form of its 'Threat' system which gives select players unique powers, at the cost of the rest of humanity hunting them for mega cash rewards. The cat and mouse element this added to the books really upped the tension, especially when it spilled over into real life.

For me, most of the negatives came in books one and two and revolved squarely around the youth of the MC, who is 15. There's some body shaming themes which, though it might accurately reflect the mindset of an immature teenager, still didn't sit well with me. Basically the MC (and other characters) are jerks to his overweight best friend. Though the issue is eventually resolved, it's dealt with in a one paragraph apology and that's pretty much it. The MC is never once being held accountable for his actions, meaning it just never felt right within the story. I would have preferred other areas for the main character to experience character growth in.

Speaking of character growth, secondary characters are really well done. Many of them are complex, and occasional side chapters really flesh them out. Romance is a bit less well done. Women seem to fall for the MC with alarming abandon, and I often found myself groaning at the paper thin explanations written in to justify it.

Still, all in all, despite its faults, this was a really, really fun read. The negatives don't take up too much space in the book, and the action was FUN! Stats are just the perfect level for audiobooks - not too heavy, not too light - and narration was great. This is a very strong LitRPG read. It has it's faults but I still couldn't put the book down. I can 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a good litRPG listen - especially those who have read widely in genre already.
