Publisher's Summary

I am not of this world.

It was an ordinary Friday. Dungeons and Dragons with the crew. A few IPAs. Maybe some hummus.

That was all until a careless mistake sent me hurtling into another dimension. 

I don't understand everything just yet. With elves, trolls, and some sort of ultimate badass called the Lich King running around, how could I? But what I do understand is this: I have a job to do.

Because for the first time in a long time, people depend on me. And my actions could mean the difference between life and death not just for me, but for all of Zamina.

Interesting world

I really like the world building so far, promising start to a new series.

The narration is very well done, Erin did a great job as always.

The story slowly ramps up with some minor pacing issues, I am really looking forward for book 2

Excellent!! 10/10!!!

This is a story about a History Teacher who loves Dungeons & Dragons getting sucked into a game world. There are no over-the-top stats to skip over or game mechanics to get bogged down by. Just a guy doing what any fan of D&D dreams to do, kick @$$ and save the world. Oh, and of course, have fun with the ladies along the way. The book was excellently written and flowed really well. It didn’t leave me so bored in spots that I’d have to skip over. 10/10 would recommend.

The only problem I had with the book was the narrator, and even then, it wasn’t so much of a problem that I had to quit listening. While Erin did a spot-on job with the characters and accents to bring the characters to life, the general narration gave me a vibe of a mom reading a bedtime story to a toddler.

A fun twist on a other world story

First an foremost the narrator does an amazing job bringing these characters to life. The plot is great, with enough action, suspense. and drama with out being overly predictable. The author succeeded where many of this genre miss the mark. Balancing sexy time with the plot without it comeong across as forced or over the top. overall I highly recommend giving this book listen,.you will not regret it.

Nice

Read the book before I listened to the audio and enjoyed both. Erin Bateman did a fantastic job with the accents on the various characters in the book. Looking forward to the next one
