Summary

Entering the world of Fate Online, all Eric wants to do is level up as quickly as possible. After all, with millions of dollars on the line, aiming for the top is a given, right? However, Fate is not the ordinary game that Eric and his friends think it is. Fighting enormous wolves, being yelled at by crotchety old militia captains, and becoming embroiled in a deadly feud with other players are all considered part of a normal day in Fate.  

Can Eric survive? How will Eric's choices shape Fate and those who inhabit it? Can Eric truly treat Fate as a game and fight his way to the top when the very game itself seems bent on killing him?  

Warning: This book contains mild profanity and PvP.

Solid first book

This is a great start to the series it is interesting and follows multiple characters (a bit too much for me though). I'm looking forward to how this story progresses. 3.5/5

slow start, but generally good

I found that the first few chapters had little to do with the rest of the book, and most of the issues he has during them get solved and while it does do a bit to characterize the main character I do feel that the first hour or so could have been cut and the book would be better for it,

Once the game gets started and the story starts to focus on him playing it becomes a fun litrpg. I like the way they are discovering the lore of the world and how skills work, The combat (except the one the book starts with) is all generally well written, and the people he meets in game have distinct personalities.

The biggest problem I had with this book is the amount of characters that do nothing. Only one of his I think 6 friends gets any memorable interaction, and most of the characters seen before he enters the game have nothing to do with him after. I know that they'll probably appear in a sequel but this book just feels a little to short to have so many characters not do much.

weak start but great finish

the start of fate is a bit bumpy, but once you clear the first few chapters things pick up and rock on until the end.

Good story meh performance

My number one pet peeve with his audiobook is when he reads the chat room logs. Do some editing for the audio because it does not work well to have to listen to 5 minutes of yesh, yes yes, yup and okay. just say they all agreed for commonsense sake.

Overall a fun book, but flaws exist

I will start by saying this was gifted to me by the author, but not agreement about review was made.

The biggest issue that I found in this novel is one of perspective. Usually it is third person, but then it will suddenly become second person as we see what everyone is thinking. Minor quibble at best, but it broke immersion some.

The main character seems likeable for much of the book, but then does some actions that made me feel a bitter surprised and dirty. After that I had some trouble relating to him, even while he tries to make friends with people he blatantly screwed over.

There are so many pop culture references, or things borrowed from other works or real life with the serial numbers filed off. Hurricane is clearly Blizzard, and suspending disbelief they can have an mmo launch that smooth was tough. There’s a sect of rangers named after Lothlorian in LOTR. And a plethora more I can’t recall offhand.

Will I get book 2? Heck yeah. For all it’s flaws it is fun, and the game environment has some interesting aspects. I like the way they are setting up levelling and progression and downplaying camping and grinding. Levels based off how good your skills are is also neat, no xp points per se.

The narrator is very good, and at times reminded me of John Delancie in his tone and accent. This one has a big career ahead of him. Bit melodramatic at times (one or to chapters were like CHAPTER 10 in this super-intense way. Dude, it’s just the chapter number, chill ;) )

In conclusion, give it a shoot. You can always return it if you hate it, but if you like the genre, I think you will like this series.

Fun

Read the eBook when it came out, so I was excited to see the audiobook version is out. I can't write a review without giving spoilers, but it's a fun story that let's better when it fully embraces the LitRPG elements. Hopefully, the second book and audiobook will be out soon.

There's such a thing as too much showing.

I get the feeling that someone told the author 'SHOW don't tell!' a few too many times without explaining what it actually means. The result is about three hours worth of story, dragged out into an 8 hour introduction to the world that leaves me with the feeling of 'this was the first half of book one.'

You'll hit the 25% mark before leaving the game's tutorial.The remainder of the book completes the introductory quest in a local story chain. It moves that slowly. And it's not too bad of a story, not dreadful writing, decent narration, but it takes so very very long to get anywhere. By the time things start happening, the book is over.

I can't recommend this book as it stands. If you can get it on sale, it may be worth the time, but it does not feel like a complete story. Even for a book 1 in a promised saga, it's too content-thin. If book 2 comes in at 13+ hours, I'd consider it, but with this series you have to consider the runtime as far exaggerated from the amount of story you'll be getting.

Slow Start but solid read

The story was a slow start, but after the author set up the story, it turned out to be one of my favorite stories. Loved the game designers mystery of how to level and such, and the Main Character

Slow start, good developments.

Fate is not the average litrpg in the sense that it is not a power fest. It's a much more casual approach to a VRMMO, with friends learning together about the unknowns of a newly released game.

In that sense, this book works as an introduction to a much vaster world — one with its own lore, beliefs, and a very well crafted magic system.

I'll be waiting for the next installment in its audiobook form.

how much is 2 many characters?

Facebook suffers from too many characters all at once it should be a central character and then introducing the other characters slowly but it is a good book a great start as the foundation for a series
