When Dan McCarthy stumbles upon a folder containing evidence of the conspiracy to end all conspiracies - a top-level alien cover-up - he leaks the files without a second thought. The incredible truth revealed by Dan's leak immediately captures the public's imagination, but Dan's relentless commitment to exposing the cover-up and forcing disclosure quickly earns him some enemies in high places.

The story is remarkably modern and feels like a very familiar world. The author obviously did a lot of good research.
Characters are diverse and likeable.
Narrator did a great job.
I’m just glad I bought this one and the second at the same time so I can continue the story straight away

More laughs per chapter than most LITRPG.
Due to both the writing and the performance of narrator.
Great different twist to the genre. And very funny.
If you’re looking for a good LITRPG to go for, this won’t disappoint you.

I've listened to quite a few LIT-RPG.
This one is a definite for you if you enjoy those. Plus the story is evolving in a great original way.
And as always Neil Hellegers does a fantastic job narrating.

I only wish it was longer. Though it is a good length already. The world its set in, I get the feeling it’s huge and I’ve only been shown a corner. Looking forward to and sequels and the world opening up.
The characters are great and each are well written individuals.
And adding to that point, the narrator is fantastic. Uniquely voicing just about everyone

Everything you could wNg from a time travel story, and more. And not just a story set in one time and the present. It's great. It's a stand alone sequel but it's worth enjoying the first part first in my opinion also.
