Summary

After accepting the fact that he will never know his old reality again, Gunnar looks forward toward building a new life inside Eden's Gate.

It's time to form a guild, gather resources, and earn the acceptance of the Edgewood inhabitants.

If only things were that easy....

The dark elves aren't thrilled about having humans in Edgewood, the mine isn't vacant, and you can't form a guild without at least a few guild mates.

Will Gunnar pursue Adeelee? Is Rachel still out there somewhere? And who is Jax exactly? Could he really be a Sparrow?

IF ONLY

Listened to both books was dubious at first but the more I listened the more I got hooked, if there are more Eden’s gate I would love to know, mr Brody, please don’t let it end there, you can’t let it end there, 😏😉

Another great book from Brody

Purchased this as soon as it became available after listening to the first book. The author did a good job with the story picking up where the last book finished off. The characters development through the story continues to grow and the MC does not become some kind of uber player which is good. The character leveling is consistent and not like other litrpg authors novels who feel the need to describe every stat levelling which happens nearly every other paragraph which is very annoying, Edward Brody has done a far better job with his novels than alot of other litrpg authors. Definitely looking forward to book 3. Pavi Proczko continues to do an brilliant job narrating the books I hope he continues to the other books in this series!

Terrific Litrpg

Far better than the self proclained king of litrpg, Aleron Kong and yet I think his is really good too.

Just wish these litrpg self publishers would get a real proof reader, which none so far have done.
Only downside is the rather silly Americanising of the language such as month, day, year. In what world does it go month before day followed by year. Small quibbles really but when listening instead of reading, they really stand out and spoil the narration somewhat.

This narrator was an excellent choice though, with good rythm, speed, volume and pitch as well as an excellent range across both male and female voices.

Looking forward to book 3.

Good story. really enjoyed it

Any additional comments?

Only one problem. Why would someone that is so interested in magic and invests in intellect, always forget to use his magic in his fights apart from one boring fire spell that he has had since early book one?

More robotic than the NPC's

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story isn't compelling and only covers a few days, the main character struggles with a few moral decisions, but doesn't act on the single paragraph of guilt he feels

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Extremely predictable with no emotional appeal, doesn't help that the main character has forgotten his reason for forming his guild

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator delivers lines with a constant monotone.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Eden's Gate: The Sparrow?

The earlier scenes with Jax and the speculation around him

Any additional comments?

I can tell the author is a huge fan of the drizz't books because the main character is heavily influenced, which I find irritating

Nothing Happens

Any additional comments?

Nothing of note or importance happens. Sure characters do things, but there is no overarching reason other than these vague future goals. But when you are trying to hold a reader's interest with promises about how strong the MC is going to be years from now but after two books only 14 days have passed, at least I feel my interest waning. Why do I care that he grabbed 3 pieces of hardtack and a handful of grass when the only purpose is so that he can eat it. Sure the MC has to eat, but why do I have to know his supply list for every meal? Get on to something of note.
The characters are all boring and have no value to them besides the princess. She is probably the only character that I would actually care about if she died, but then I would just stop reading.
In barely over one week the MC had already forgotten that he has a girlfriend in the real world and consigned himself to get a replacement and his actions are becoming increasingly immature. I actually feel bad for elf princess as the plot demands that she slowly fall for him even though her upbringing and rank should in reality make him pitiably repugnant in her eyes. Maybe that's what the author thinks is going on, but there isn't any hint that she is falling for him out of pity, more so honest infatuation.

Vocabulary is still slightly off in this book, with the author using words like "unleash my grip" instead of "release my grip". I will forgive this if English isn't the author's first language, but it doesn't remove the fact that these are still writing errors that should have been found by the editor. Also it seems that the author never actually read the final version of the book out loud as there are a few scene continuity issues: characters saying "again" when there was never a first time or narrative exposition repeating itself.

Overall there was just nothing to this book. Thinking hard, there was not a single scene that I actually enjoyed or though was well written in its entirety. It feels like this book only exists as an exposition dump to push aside trailing ends from the first book and give away the plot for the third, which I don't think I will be reading.

10/10. Best LitRPG.

This book is without a doubt the best LitRPG I have ever read. It may even be the best book in general I've read. I give this book the best possible review I can and I would suggest it to anyone. The author makes great creative choices and has a good writing style. the narrator also did a very good job.

Better than the first.

Ihave listened to both books in the span of 3 days while working. the first book was decent but i was impressed enough to buy the second, although this is not my favorite storyline it is a good one & this book is more exciting than the first. A definite listen to if you like litrpg.

I absolutely loved the 2nd book. The story continued on without a break. Great character development and even greater storylines. I cant wait for the 3rd book.

Great story but...,

So far I enjoyed both books but both book are way too short honestly 1&2 book should have combined one book in my opinion
