Publisher's Summary

Second Edition: Revised for content and additional editing 

This box set contains all books in the Uniworld Online Trilogy: 

The Song Maiden

The Song Mistress

The Song Matron

The skills of a talented and determined Bard are not to be trifled with… 

Cadence was born with a previously unknown disability that prevented her from being able to communicate verbally or through the use of sign language, though it didn’t prevent her from using the written word. Regardless of the challenges she faced through her short life, she persevered and started her first year at college, rooming with her best friend Jill. 

However, a brutal attack that left her near death caused her to be without a way to easily relay information about her attackers. With no other options available to communicate with others – and with boredom as a result of being confined to a hospital bed having a detrimental effect on her health – Jill came up with a way for her best friend to play a game. 

Not just any game, however; Uniworld Online was the newest offering from Unitech, a company that designed a new method of fully immersing oneself into a game using a special technology called and NVERS. Set in a fantasy setting with opposing Light and Dark Factions, the immersive virtual reality game is unlike any other the world has ever seen. Having never played a video game before, though, Cadence is subjected to completely unfamiliar territory. Unlike every other player inside Uniworld, she isn’t playing the game to kill monsters and get stronger; instead, she wants to help the citizens of the world (which the other players call NPCs), because that gives her a sense of purpose while her body heals back in the real world. 

The best thing about Uniworld, however, was that it provided her with something she had never had before: a voice. And with that voice, she has an opportunity to bring justice to her attackers – and maybe even change the landscape of Uniworld in the process. 

Contains LitRPG elements such as character progression, quests, skills, stats, and stat sheets. No harems and sparse foul language.

When a non-gamer gets a game-breaking skill

This story was a great take on LitRPG. It's a charming tale of what happens when a non-gamer ends up in a game because of tragedies that leave her bedbound in real life. It makes sense that a girl who can't speak in real life would choose a class that centers around using her newly-discovered voice, ignoring the fact that her race isn't really suited to that class. There are plenty of fights and powers and levels to go around, but fundamentally this is about a non-gamer who becomes a gamer due to circumstance, but is able to unlock game-breaking levels of power precisely because she is approaching the game in a casual manner. If you want to see someone grinding and optimizing their build, this isn't going to be the story for you. But plenty of stories will give you that, and this was thoroughly enjoyable as is.

Not authors best work

I really like this author and only got it because it was a trilogy. I don’t like getting short audiobooks. Unfortunately it was to much fluff for me with a way overly lucky and overpowered MC. I see why there isn’t many books with bards as MCs. To make things even worse was the way it seemed like the story was being forced to become a love story. If you like a “goody two shoes” MC that from the moment they step into the game is overly concerned with the NPC’s then this one is for you.

I really do not like the narrator

I got the box set for this book and I got through the first book but now I just cannot finish the second one The narrator's voice is not for me. I can't really give an honest opinion about what I think of the book because I can't get over her voice and I can't really enjoy the book.

The story is good, the narration needs work

Overall, the story is good. It's not going to change the genre, but it is a solid LitRPG book. It has good pacing and good character development. The world building is a little derivative and leans heavily on World of Warcraft. It's not a bad thing. WoW has been successful for years for a reason, and how many other RPG based books borrow heavily from D&D? It is exactly what you expect from author Brooks. A good book that really needs an better editor. While forgivable for an indie publisher, the grammar and spelling mistakes are there, and can be glaring enough to pull me out of the book occasionally. That said, it does not detract from the storytelling, which is why I keep coming back to Brooks' books over and over.

The problem is the narrator. She misses/rewrites many lines on the fly, mostly to the detriment of the story. Her choices in characterization and line delivery are quite bad at times. This may not be completely her fault. She could have been working with a earlier version of the book than what got published, and the director of the audiobook, if there was one, could have taken some of those decisions out of her hands. Either way, this will make me rethink getting books with her as the narrator. I'm not trying to be mean, but if I hadn't gotten this book on sale, I would be returning it.

deacent, but bit flat

i did finish the first book, but ending was absurd and totally unrealistic.
ps. if you'r legal councel ever tells you, that you have to live with NDA signed under diress, chained to hospidal bed, without councel and witnesses unable to communicate and thretened with violence - he/she is corrupt, exreeeemly incompetent or sadist.

Great series

This series had a a lot packed into these three books I am very happy with the purchase. The performance was also very good. Jonathan Brooks has a lot of great books and these don’t disappoint.

Decent story

I thought it was a decent story. The narrator was a little stiff and there is a point just past the middle of the book where the narrator has a lot of background noise going on and her voice breaks in and out.

original concept

it is an original story with a feel good feeling. A young lady that has never played a computer game before now has nothing to do but play. doesn't play like other do, so get an original experience. book is good but the voice is not what I would of picked for a bard. She does put emotions into the story but doesn't try to sing or anything.

I loved this series!

Although I didn't find anything wrong with the other version of this series I really enjoyed the fact that this was a boxset edition and made listening to the whole series in one go very easy. I loved this series. The story is great and its a sort of feel good type story with a funny MC that you just want to see prosper.

Great storytelling

This trilogy is storytelling at its greatest, enjoy the ride of the journey as the story changes in so many different ways while following its core truth.

From a girl who can not communicate to a (spoiler) this is one to have for your collection to listen to again and again.

Enjoyable

It was nice to have a female main character. I found it hard at the beginning when she was injured because I felt to much sympathy. She was a bit o p at times but there were good twists and turns in the narrative. The performance was very good . Found myself wanting a book 4!

Enjoyable

An enjoyable story which has a fair amount going for it, not least of which is that it doesn't take itself too seriously and doesn't try to pad the story out like some authors might. A likeable main character suffering in adversity with plenty of self discovery and personal growth along the way. One tiny minus was some of the very odd accents. I think I heard what was supposed to be Scottish, but it really failed if it was meant to be that. It detracted just slightly from what was otherwise a very well done reading. Getting all 3 books in a single volume presents good value. I will be listening to this again in future as the one final thing I would comment on is that the old saying of always leave your audience wanting a little more applies here.

fresh take on litrpg

This book has some of the standard litrpg content (disabled person irl = OP character in game), but also some new plot twists. and plus for a female MC
