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! Defo in my top 5 litrpg

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.
EDIT: On my second read. Need more!!!!

A great book for teenagers

A solid listen. Interesting ideas. Narration took some getting used to personally but this is, of course, always subjective. My 15 year old son loved it.

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.

You feel like you are there

Great story, which the narrator brings to life.
I was quickly absorbed and felt I was right there watching it unfold.

Nice and different lit rpg

The book was very nice, the author is a beginner and its noticeable. But the premise of the book is very cool and I loved that the Mc focused on something else than slashing and casting fireballs until everything died.

Very nice backstoried litrpg with a great narrator

The story is written in a "near-future" setting, making the "limitless lands" a first ever AI controlled MMORPG.
The main character being a combat veteran in a world that no longer has any who is going through medical trials supported by the AI, that integrates his recovery in the game.
It's a good setting, with enough background and "realism" to make for an engaging story.

Narration is great, characters have different accents that separate them and the storyteller voicing is clear with good pace.
All in all, this is a recommended Listen and I've personally already started book 2.

I was sceptical about it all

... but man was I supposed by both the story and the narration. I would recommend this to anyone interested in a soldier's side of navigation through VR Games unlike the normal "gamer kid" that are typically the main character.
