Summary

Endless adventure awaits in Interstellar Online! Try out new sensory bodysuits to feel what your character feels!

CAUTION: Malware included.

Cassidy Delgado needs the newest MMO launch from Lush Games to be fantastic. It isn’t just the future of the company and a lot of money on the line, it’s her career as a product manager. The hype is enormous. Someone has hacked the project code already, but the R&D heads have assured Cassidy they’ve fixed the error.

There’s no possible way that a malicious hacker could, for instance, trap her in the game space when she’s testing out a prototype suit or blackmail her into installing a trojan horse.

People are definitely going to get fired for this.

With few options left but to contact someone offline for help, Cassidy runs a game scenario where she controls a starship, activates some artificial intelligence programs, and plots a course to the nearest connection to the outside world. Unfortunately, an alpha tester going by the username of Zart Tender has plans for her ship and the AIs, and they don’t include her.

Cassidy will have to take her skills to the next level to defeat Zart and call for help before the hacker can wield the game as a weapon against its users - and the rest of the world.

Blast Off is a hilarious, action-packed LitRPG story that fans of Galaxy Quest or The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy will love.

Authors Note: Contains content that is intended for mature listeners.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great storyline

This is an awesome book with lots of action and a great storyline. The series is a great book and I can't wait to listen to the next one. The book is on fun science fiction adventure.

Rollercoaster sci-fi adventure

Not my usual read but I thought I'd try something different and was not disappointed. This was a new genre for me and it was very enjoyable. Cassidy Delgado is stuck in a game and has to essentially level herself up in order to get out. The idea was novel and it was well written and romped along at a decent pace. Good entertainment.

D.B. Goodin does it again

Another smash hit from a great author. The storyline is fast paced to keep you engaged but stays true to itself and never feels like it is getting too far from the core plot. There's always something going on, be it a battle scene or something more intimate.

The real standout here is the author leveraging his own expertise with his cybersecurity background to give the book a dose of realism which is sorely missing from this genre.

If you love Sc-Fi, then you will love this story.

A well-written book and excellently narrated. This story contains all the parts that make up a story and enters into almost every part of life. It is much longer than my usual listen, but kept me glued.

Top-notch science fiction

This is a fun, well-structured science fiction tale with lots of excitement and twists. From beginning to end, the story held me engaged and involved, and I eagerly await David's next novel. It's very captivating! If you like science fiction, this is a must-listen. Sarah Sampino did a fantastic job with the narrative.

I'm not usually a Sci Fi fan, but ...

I couldn't resist this title, since a main character is a product manager, and I am as well! (We don't have a lot in common otherwise, however!) A delightful spacey romp and fun for sci fi fans and even non-sci fi fans like me. And you don't even have to be a product manager to enjoy it!

Great Story!

I loved this audiobook. Excellent plot, with twists and turns and a bit of sex - which was handled professionally - for good measure! It had me chuckling at times as well. The narration was excellent. The tone of the narrator was very engaging and brought the book alive. I will be looking for more work from the author in the future. Great job!

Great for road trip listen!

I normally don't listen or read a science fiction book but I made an exception for Blast Off after a recommendation from a good friend. Well, I must say D. B. Goodin didn't disappoint the listeners; however, some content in this book may not be suitable for young listeners due to the explicit nature. The character development and storyline are well written. if you want to go on a wild ride of action-packed LitRPG, this s is a great listen, especially during a road trip!
