Publisher's Summary

Book five of The Realms continues the epic LitRPG adventure that started with Barrow King.

“We could end this war before it begins.”

Gryph thought freeing his sister Brynn from the shackles of the High God would be the end of his mission.

Only to learn it was just the beginning.

Tasked with building an army for the Resistance, Gryph quickly realizes it will never be enough to curb the High God’s despotic quest to control the Realms.

Victory seems hopeless.

But then a long-buried secret resurfaces, and a desperate plan is hatched.

The survival of the Realms is in Gryph’s hands. If he fails, billions of souls will suffer a fate worse than death.

Can Gryph uncover the mysteries of his past in time to save the Realms, or will his actions hand victory to the High God?

The Forsaken God continues the number one best-selling epic LitRPG saga that began in Barrow King. The Realms will never be the same.

I just can’t finish this, let’s have breakfast

This series started off well. Everything is so dramatic and over the top. If he ate breakfast it would be: “Griff lifted the spoon with a Herculean power that dwarfed any other use of a breakfast utensil. The Cheerios each weighed more than planets. They exploded in his mouth, and he knew he could die, but he bravely moved forwards and began to chew with a mighty struggle that went on for eternity, and yet only lasted a microsecond. Not all the forces of General Mills food corporation could stop his ceaseless struggle to swallow. But suddenly, he knew the milk was past its sell date, and he despaired in a despair that was all encompassingly despairing and required 10 minutes of exposition because of the despair. Pain exploded, as the celestial spoon clicked against his teeth, but he had done it. He had eaten a bit of cereal. Griff’s vision went dark, and he knew no more”

Listen to the rest first. A great story

I’ll be honest I picked this one up without having read the other four first. My foolish mistake. Now that being said I enjoyed it immensely. Now liken my experience to watching return of the Jedi without having seen any other Star Wars movie. Great characters but with relationships and powers and intricacies of personalities that I was totally clueless about. Still highly enjoyable but I just know it would have been better with the prior four books knowledge. That being said there are great quests, godlike abilities, leveling trees, powers and gear that just rock and would make any d&d group drool to find in a drop. Enjoy the book But please only after listening to the rest. It will be worth the wait.

Great LITRPG Sequel

The fate of this universe literally rests on the outcome of the actions of Griff and his team.

If I could describe this one, it's a whole a big dollop of Ready Player One, a pinch of Sword Art Online.

If you watch Anime, then this book is for you, similarity between this and of the Sword Art Online is very close with Griffs Drive to protect his friends and the world at large from a the greatest threat he could of ever feared.

The Twists and turn throughout the book will keep you on edge and will keep you listening well untill the early hours of the morning.
The Endig ro this book will have to Screaming and thrusting for more.

Overall I would say this newest edition to the saga was well worth the wait and cannot wait for the 6th.
As Always A Loyal Fan CM Carney, Look forward to the rest.

more twists than a rollercoaster

C.M. Carney further explains the realms in this epic sequel! but not in a way that I expected! Armen Taylor shows off some supreme voice acting skills with some interesting new characters.

Excellent narration and brilliantly written

I love this series so much, I've lost count of how many times I've listened to it. Armen Taylor brings life to each and every character, and C.M. Carney is such a brilliant writer that he incorporates humor, adventure and loss seamlessly.

Great storyline

I lose track of how many of these novels I've listened too now, I can't get enough!
The Realms series are amazing and the more books I read/listen too, the more I'm sucked into such an in depth world. I really can't recommend this series enough to people. Just do yourself a favour and get them all!

nothing wrong with the book NF

it's just not what I was looking for...

however, Armen really needs to consider getting a female Narrator and do duets because while his male voices are great, his females also sounds male which is a problem
