Publisher's Summary

Bloodwraith was a villain who hated adventurers until he found himself transferred into the body of one. Trapped without his magic, he discovered that alien beings were using his reality as a game...and he had just become a player. Teaming up with a glitched NPC and other adventurers, he has no choice but to learn the truth about himself and his world.

Finally free of obligations, Bloodwraith can recover his necromancy and strike back against the beings controlling his world. Little does he know that one of them is now hunting for him: His old adventurer nemesis is still alive in his old body. Not only does the adventurer plan to get his body back, he's not going to play fair to get it.

Journeying to a new city, with new rivals and potential allies, Bloodwraith will be challenged in many ways. But in the end, he will be facing his past life, and this time he will need to decide what it is he really wants.

Glad this series is back on Audible

This series is a very good one as it turns the LitRPG genre on its head. I’m glad this is back on Audible and I believe Matt Weight did an outstanding job trying to keep the original VA’s character voices consistent.

Sometimes it, admittedly, comes out a little flat, but this seems more due to having to keep consistent to a prior VA’s work rather than a complete lack on his part. If Matt Weight had been given the task to begin, then it’s definitely possible that the performance would have been even better.

I’m looking forward to the next book!

Return of the King

I'm so happy to see this book series continue! I loved New Game Minus, and the sequel surpasses it. Izzy is my favorite character so far in the whole series.

Matt Weight does a great job stepping in as a new narrator, and improves on several of the voices. I can't wait to listen to more books by him!

Happy to see this series continue!

Story picks up directly after the first book, and if you enjoyed that one, then this is more of the same. A new city, some new (excellent) companions and more powers with Bloodwraith getting back to his roots so to speak.

The new narrator had some sizable shoes to fill, but overall did very well. A slight change in pace, but the tone and voices feel similar enough that I basically forgot about it after the first chapter.

The narrator does two voices: boring and sleepy.

A review, and message to the author. The narration of this book is unbearable. If you are looking for the sequel three years later, don't do it to yourself. Sarah Lin, New Game Miinus was the first book you put on Audible. I immediately bookmarked your page, and have checked it at least once a week since you did so. That's 3 years. I tried every one of your book series due to enjoying that first book. I didn't really like them, but I listened to most of them. I really was just waiting for this book in particular. I cannot express how sad I am that you found Travis Baldree and yet somehow for this book just decided, "Ah screw it, give it to whoever charges the least". This Narrator is unbelievably bad, and you had to know that. I have an eye disease and won't get to see how New Game Minus turned out, because it is literally putting me to sleep. The only reason it isn't being refunded is I've started using it as a way to fall asleep when sleep aids don't help. I'm dead serious. Please re-release this book with a Narrator who can at least do 2 voices.
