Summary

As the medpod continues to repair his time-ravaged body in the real world, Colonel Raytak’s foes inside the game world of Limitless Lands execute their carefully-laid schemes, seeking his ruin. Wrongfully accused of treason, Raytak finds himself a prisoner of the Imperium he serves.

To clear his name, Raytak is forced to fight in the arena, seeking victory in the Emperor’s Grand Melee to earn his freedom…but he can’t do it alone. To win, he must forge brutal prisoners, cowards, and deserters into a fighting force capable of conquering every gladiatorial team standing in his way.

Meanwhile, an ancient threat stirs in Hayden’s Knoll and the zone is left unprotected in Raytak’s absence.

Will Raytak be able to regain his freedom and his honor? Will the new threat destroy the zone before he can return to fight it?

Can not wait for installment 4

I never knew this style of book existed. It is a cross between adventure/fantasy & listening to someone play a game. Who would know this would work, I didn't , but this series of stories changed my mind. I listened quite contently while in bed using the timer on the app and found myself adding more to the timer each night.

Another episode in a great series.

part 3 gives a decent plot twist into the storyline and there is a great story unfolding once again.
The characters are developing greatly and there's a good amount of action in different storybranches.

Narration by jack voraces is well-done and keeps a good tempo.

Series goes from strength to strength

It would have been very easy for the author to have continued progressing the story and characters along similar lines to the first two books, but the main character immediately sees drastic changes to his in-game progression that results in a distinctly different tone for much of this instalment of the series. This is a move that could have easily failed or merely alienated some of the readers, but it works really well and makes the series that much stronger, while also teaching the reader a bit more about the overall world of the game too.

The narrator again gives another strong performance, helping to make the overall book more enjoyable and ensuring that all the relevant characters are suitably distinctive to help the listener's overall enjoyment of the story.

Overall, another quality addition to this series, I wouldn't recommend jumping into the series with this book though, there's no benefit in missing out on the first two that are also very enjoyable listens.

Waiting on the next one

I wasn't sure if I would like the twist at the start of the book but I was more than pleasantly surprised. The story keeps expanding without becoming old and I'm very much looking forward to the next book to find out how the characters will develop further.

I can't wait for the next one!

The Good:
I love the storyline, the characters and the setting in mock MMORPG Imperium Romanum. The protagonist is likeable and unlike many LitRPG heroes, he is not a complete fool. The story is engaging, and I did listen to the whole 15 hours book in one go.

The Bad:
Not much, except for the horribly wasted opportunity to name one of the quests "Saving Private Raytak". And combat losses which regularly exceed 50% are considered normal, without any penalties to the morale (I get that this is just game mechanics, but an annoying one).

And the Ugly:
The author needs a thesaurus. Badly. While the non-combat part of the story is generally well-written, as soon as any action begins, he forgets that synonyms exist, and the battle scenes seem somewhat clunky.

Stalking Audible’s website for book four.

First off I just wanted to say: as a Marine this story was seriously lacking on Crayons. ;)

This series is an example of superlative writing and craftsmanship. It’s an original spin on a genre that seems to have gotten stuck in just three possible plot lines.

While not everyone can perform with a voice that is as deep and gravely as a Sean Connery or Clint Eastwood, the narrator does an excellent job of keeping the individual characters distinctive enough that you can easily follow the conversations.


Special note to the author from an avid fan and crayon connoisseur:

As an individual who has driven a hundred miles to sit in those waiting rooms for hours until someone could “practice” medicine on me, I have had the humble pleasure to listen the stories of several of the heroes you have spoken about in your author’s notes. I would also like to thank you for sharing the love brother.

A great entry in an amazing series

These books have not been par for the course of Litrpg books, they have all the elements but are told in a far different way, and three books in its been a very good thing. The soldier of a Litrpg world (as opposed to adventurer) angle just keeps giving coupled with an outstanding narration Job gives this title a real movie vibe. Without spoiling portions of this book our MC faces a whole new set of challenges, the story introduces new characters and overall gives the listener a whole new perspective on the game world. it takes us away from the main Town and zone of the story for a fun line of quests the MC must complete, while tying him back into the town and zones over arching story near the end.The real world angle has a few big developments as well!
The narration for these books continues to improve, Jack delivers another great entry into the series with a plethora of voices for many characters that really bring them to life. I'd suggest picking up any book this narrator is on as he does a wonderful job. at the very least if you are a litrpg fan give this series a try, the story and the narration will not disappoint!

Off to a great start!

I originally purchased book 1 on a lark as I was choosing a book for a cross country flight. I couldn't put the headphones down! Then I devoured book 2. Book 3 is off to a great start (I'm halfway through). The narration is fantastic and, I'm not going to spoil it, but Raytak is no Mary Sue!

Ending is lacking, narration lost me

The story was pleasant. Definitely took some cues from the movie, Gladiator (2008). I enjoyed it until the ending that I zoned out. This foe that was built up over the course of a few chapters served only as a last road block that ultimately held no consequence. I would have preferred them to have had a larger role in the next book, but I won't be continuing the series due to my qualms with the narration.

After the first 2 books in the series, I enjoyed the fresh concept of a recovering veteran in a fantasy world so I was able to dismiss the narration quality. Due to my losing interest in the final act of the story, I noticed how much I was bothered by the narration. I did not really enjoy the voices used for Yendis and other characters as they were very harsh characterizations (which is actually fine when it comes to antagonists). There were also several mispronunciations as a result of the narrator's accent but it just bothers me too much. It comes down to personal preference so if any prospective listeners read this, the story itself is definitely worth listening to.

Better and better

This series just keeps getting better and better with every book! I didn’t expect the Russell Crowe part, but I definitely loved it. Can’t wait to finish the series!

A fantastic sequel to the great series

The plot in the third book takes a quite unexpected turn making MC face a series of tough challenges and even moral choices. It is a very well paced story that, as well as first two books keeps you hooked throughout the whole book and makes you truly sympathize with the characters even though you know that they cannot truly die in the virtual world of limitless lands. I look forward to the book IV, as I am sure Dean Henegar will deliver another great part of the story.

The narration is brilliant, I have a feeling that Jack becomes better with every next book despite the fact that you though he nailed it perfectly in Book II already ;)
