Publisher's 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.

tough to listen to

the story has potential but the narration was just so hard to listen to. The narrator just couldn't do the voice of anyone under the age of 18 without making them sound like a whiny brat.

Extremely Weak

In my opinion the LitRPG genre has recently seen qualitative growth in content quality. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for this series. The overall premise is pretty weak with half-hazard execution. It simply lacks situational depth and has lack luster dialog.

It's almost as if the author lacks enough life experience to add color and flavor to the interactions between characters.

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.

Basic power fantasy, cartoon characters

Narrator manages to make another MC (this one a practically lobotomized, street hardened, young adult) sound like a petulant 4-6 year old.

Potentially interesting world building and mechanics, fairly shallow characters.

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.
