Summary

Colonel James Raytak is about to die. The 93-year-old combat veteran is living his last days in a nursing home; his only hope for survival is an experimental Medpod life support system controlled by an artificial intelligence. 

Co-developed by the world’s largest gaming company, Qualitranos the AI will also control the soon-to-be-released game Limitless Lands. Without its creator’s knowledge, the AI decides the best course of treatment is to import its patient’s consciousness directly into the game. 

Colonel Raytak must dust off his military training and lead his virtual troops in a fight to repair his broken body and mind while exploring the Limitless Lands.

Looking forward to more...

Saw the ebook get a lot of traction on amazon but waited for the audio to come out and was pleased that I did.

Dean Henegar has brought a breath of fresh air into the LitRPG genre. It seem so many of these books are focused on sword and sorcery style RPGs. Limitless Lands seems to take its inspiration more from RTS games and has the MC in charge of a platoon of men rather than fighting alone or in a team of other players.

I cant wait to see how this mechanic plays out in further books as it could get really interesting as the MC is given more troops to command. Im thinking castle siege or large scale battles.

Jack Voraces did a fantastic job bringing the characters to life. He had a distinct voice for every character and was able to play into the more emotional parts as well.

Looking forward to more from them both. When is book 2 coming….!

Amazing book!

This book is amazing. I planned to listen it for a couple of hours each day and ended up binge listening it in one run. The plot follows a unique levelling system and the story is just as unique. I love the MC and can't wait to see how he develops in the later books.

Great fun, slow start

This book starts a bit slow but after the first 1/2 dozen chapters I was hooked.

The book is an interesting mix of world building around Hayden’s Knoll, a frontier town in a game world and battle stories focusing on the main character, a veteran field commander.

Interesting take on the genre

This book was an interesting take on the genre, both from the perspective of the main character's real life situation and age, also from the style of play of the character he chose that offers a different and more strategic style of play from those you usually see in books like this, almost LitRTS than LitRPG in some respects.

I enjoyed the performance of this narrator, the tone was pleasant and non-fatiguing, while also presenting a suitable range of distinctive tones and voices to help bring the story to life even more.

Overall, this was a very enjoyable first part of a series and I liked it enough to go on and listen to the second part right away.

Good story

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The idea behind this story was very interesting with some good litRPG elements, I found the narration a little flat at times although he did try and do voices for characters which was ok. There were some unique ideas for the genre here so its well worth giving a go if you enjoy this style of book.

Flawed but enjoyable

overall a enjoyable listen just a few points that jarred me a bit one being the narrator saying un-derfed instead of under-fed super weird I also think that for a wartime officer with vast experience and tactical knowledge he didn't really use it too much. last one he walking into a boss fight seriously under levelled with looking at LVL up screen or sending troops back for more javelins despite no time constraints. other that that I liked it though.

A thoroughly enjoyable narration.

I found this tricky to listen to initially as prefer audios with a greater amount of dialogue. But was soon drawn into the story by the well delivered narration and fascinating plot.....(No spoliers)... I would recommend to anyone looking for a different take on the usual si-fi stories. I love Jack Voraces narrations and his alluring British accent.

Well worth a Listen!

Personally speaking ive listened to 90% of the LITRPG books on audible and can say that this book has a far different focus then most if not all the other ones. without giving to much away, it focuses mostly on military and the development of a unit and commander, with aspects of a developing loot system for units and some forshadowing to potential city building elements(although it could be minor).

The story itself is short, but well worth the listen especially for people that are a bit older, as the MC is an older man with a military background. The real world aspects develop well with the in game aspects creating a more complete story. The battles were okay but at least in my opinion the focus seemed mostly on the commanders perspective, so although the MC saw and was part of numerous battles the command was more of the MCs focus.

Finally the preformance, for some listeners the narrators choice of sounds and effects could be off-putting, an assessment i dont believe is fair in this genre as most narrators do it but to each their own. looking past those elements(regardless of opinion) the narrator was an outstanding choice for the role the MC plays and the general vibe of the story. To say he brings alot to the table in this story is an understatement, the narrator clearly worked hard to produce this and it shows. His voice even fits the MC perfectly.

Overall this book although different from most in the genre, is more than worth picking up if you are a fan, it brings a newer aspect and amazing preformance.

A fantastic surprise!

I took a gamble and won. This book may not be revolutionary but it has a great story and characters while also being a nice change of pace from more traditional litRPG titles.

Nice change.

Very good and original story. Nothing bad to say about the narrator just some of the sound effects where a little to much. Thumbs up all around.

One of the best book series ever!

If you love anime, where the Main Character finds himself in another world, or just love, military, strategy and medieval movies, and Anime This book series is just for you. I love all of those things and for that reason I think this is the best Book series I have ever read/listened to in my life.
