Summary

A freak accident leaves childhood friends Aiden and Scarlet dead and stranded in Hazard Online, a VR MMORPG.  

They're pushed to the brink of their sanity as they awaken with the knowledge of their death and are thrust into an experimental expansion, which only further threatens to tear them apart.  

They ally with two young women who seem to know much more than they're letting on and an AI Overmind who offers them a deal. But perhaps it's better to let some secrets stay hidden, and sacrificing their humanity may be the only way to survive....  

Note: Contains explicit sexual situations, foul language, polygamy, and all that other goodness you expect in a LitRPG novel! Only for 18-plus, so listen at your own risk.

Great narration and solid plot.

So this is my first proper litRPG audiobook. I typically listen to straight fantasy or scifi. The narration is excellent and he does great voices for each character. It all flows quite logically from one scene to the next and narrator manages to make each scene feel alive and real. The story is good and the fight scenes are in fact very good, the style of writing does require some getting used to but became a non issue shortly into the book. The narration helps as well and feel I definitely enjoyed listening to the audiobook more than if I were reading the book off my kindle.

Ridiculous, but I turned my brain off & enjoyed it

I enjoyed Oblivion, but I don't know if I liked it in the way that you're supposed to like it... Oblivion is written from the perspective of a young, mysoginistic tool. At first this grated on me, but the narrator's performance of the character fit so perfectly that I found myself laughing at the protagonist as I shook my head. Even for Game/RPG Lit, Oblivion reads like the daydream of a hormonal teenage boy, and the narrator's subtle hints of Butthead (as in "Beavis and...") in the performance were great - whether intentional or not, I'm still not sure. The writing doesn't feel very self aware - it's played completely straight. So I rolled my eyes a lot, chuckled, cringed, shook my head... but I kept listening, and I will probably listen to book 2.

Fun LitRPG/Gamelite adventure!

Great story and narration! Coming from the top of the raid world champion scene, the MC wakes up to find that all that is left of him is his uploaded consciousness. With his world rocked to its very core, he must work with a shady game dev, a nympho groupie, and a half-psychotic teammate from his glory days, to level up, reconnect with his friends, and survive the strange circumstances surrounding them. This one was a wild ride, and I can't wait for the next book to come out! Note: This story is Haram Gamelite - this genera often contains explicit scenes

epic story

loved the personal struggles with adapting to the new reality of the MCs existence and the actual struggle with the girls nice to see a story with the girls not automatically accepting the other girls right away. cannot wait to get the second installment and figure out why the company is trying to pit friend against friend

A Good Story!

This was a Good Book with interesting characters. I was happy with the plot and found it generally very interesting. It just needed to be tightened up a bit. I certainly will buy a sequel.

Wild Ride

Definitely not what I was expecting. It was written in the Russian style of gamelit novels, with less crunchiness than most. The character's emotions were completely wild and bipolar, but it was actually realistic for people who had just died and ended up in their situation. The MC got everything handed to him on a silver platter, but that was what tipped him off to the experiments the big baddies were doing to him. The plot was good and since we only lived about 3 days in the book it was more about emotional reckoning than moving through to a goal. Once I understood what the MC was going through I thought that his actions and his friends actions lined up with what could be expected, but each of these people is extremely flawed so don't expect societal norms. This book also has a lot of happytimes explicitness so don't read it unless you're ok with adult situations.

It’s a keeper

While I usually delete most books after listening to them. I’m definitely going to have to go back and listen to this one again. There’s enough action on and off the battlefield that you won’t even see the plot twist at the end sneaking up on you. It’s a great shame on audible not to have book two ready for purchase yet.

First time listener

So this is my first audible RPG book and it was amazing. The narrator gets into character and does different voices for each one. The story was well thought out and well executed. My favorite character wasn’t in all of the book but he does have an important role. I’ll be looking for the next one for sure.

All over the place...

The story/character development is all over the place and frankly doesn't make any logical sense for the time frame involved...

This book is excellent!!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. If you're into mature books this is definitely a one of them. The storyline is excellent!! Do I think all the mature scenes were necessary? No, but they definitely add flavor to the story. This book is not intended for anyone under 18. NSFW, but if you want a ride go ahead and try this rollercoaster of a book.

Average Book

While I enjoyed the book can’t say I will continue with the series there was nothing that made the story stand up and say find out more. While there is a hook there I didn’t find the bait good enough. I sure others could like or even love the book I could not connect enough with it.
