Publisher's Summary

From Bram Stoker nominated author Jake Bible, comes an exciting new LitRPG adventure series!

In the 23rd century, the world is at an end, and a group of gaming and programming friends decide that their only way to survive is to discard their bodies, and send their minds into the quantum matrix of a virtual gaming world. They have created the Domains, and there they plan to reside forever.

Except, the nightmares of reality have followed them into their new quantum dimension, and those nightmares threaten to destroy it all!

Now it is up to one of them to help navigate the quantum platform known as EverRealm, a fantasy MMORPG of epic proportions, in order to complete a quest he neither wants to complete nor knows how. With the help of his friends, and a lot of luck, he will have to face trials and tribulations like he's never faced as a player! Because now it is no longer a matter of Game Over, but of life or death!

Can he survive it all and come out a winner? The only way he'll know is if he plays the game to the bitter end!

    "level deceased"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who accept information without thinking about it - at all


    What was most disappointing about Jake Bible’s story?

    Well let's see.. 10 minutes in and we have a dog that apparently only needs vocal cords to be able to form complex sentences, a magical computer that can run pretty much forever, a plague of decaying zombies that never decay enough to actually fall apart but which can perform as well as they did while alive and a girl slave who gets put into an expensive, networked virtual simulation by her captors when she gets annoying?! ... Someone didn't bother with the worldbuilding.


    What about Jeff Hays’s performance did you like?

    He read the words without cracking up


    What character would you cut from EverRealm: A LitRPG Novel?

    everything between page 1 and the end


    Any additional comments?

    Writing a book about an RPG that I can only imagine is aimed at a YA audience doesn't excuse you from having to make a believable explanation for why things are the way they are ... and besides Adults like RPGs too. This however reads like the laziest thrown together concept imaginable.. Errm need protagonist to enter a virtual world.. I know it's the Apocalypse! A Zombie apocalypse, but all the tech works.. hell everyone has seen zombie movies no need to have it make sense.. Throw in a damaged girl as a love interest and a non threatening pet and there we go... A steaming pile of litrpg

    "Not litrpg"

    more of a zombie survival novel with VR elements, there is no actual "rpg" components such as stat distribution or looting etc. The dialogue seems more like a text conversation between people playing a game than people actually speaking to one another, and it's unfortunately apparent when the narrator tries to make it sound natural.

    "My first journey into LitRPG...quite enjoyable!"

    In the near future the world is in deep trouble. The undead infest the planet and nowhere is safe anymore. A group of gaming and programming friends find a way programmatically to immerse themselves in the gaming domains. They must forego their human bodies and will reappear in the game to live out their lives as characters within the game. They decide that the possibility of death must be an option to keep things real, so if they die in the game…that’s game over. They thought they would avoid the undead apocalypse on earth, but instead the dead manage to enter the game also. There is plenty of action much like an undead apocalypse novel. I found it quite enjoyable and decided I would look into more of these LitRPG category novels. I recommend this novel if you are a fan of the undead apocalypse.

    "Fun fantasy zombie mashup!"

    EverRealm is fun but flawed. Over the last year or so I have come to really enjoy LitRPG novels, and while this is billed as one I'm not sure I would actually call it one myself. Sure there is references to leveling and stats, but only superficially. That being said I still found EverRealm to be an enjoyable story, though I must say I had a few issue with the logic behind some of the story. The notion of escaping the zombie apocalypse by entering a VR world is pretty original. But I don't get some of the choices they've made. The plan is to live forever in these VR worlds they've created. So if they planned on living forever why in the heck would they have programmed the worlds in a way that can actually kill them? Would have made more sense to have had some glitch remove safety protocols and put everyone in danger because I just don't think that people who have been struggling to survive would just volunteer to put themselves into a situation where they can be easily killed. (Especially as I noted early they are planning to live forever) And what is the point of having 'save points'? Sure we see that first save point as a type of 'login' to the game, but later on the main character makes sure to save. Save what? If you die you die, right? What's the save even for? But like any good B-movie, which is kind of how I often view Jake's book, logic isn't always front and center. And given how enjoyable the story is I'm more than willing to overlook some sketchy logic. The characters are fun and the story, while a bit silly, kept me entertained the whole way through, and I ended up listening to the entire book in only 2 days. Like I said, EverRealm didn't feel that much like a true LitRPG novel, but I can definitely recommend it to fans of lighthearted fantasy.

    Like many of Jake Bible's books, this one is narrated by Jeff Hays, and once again he delivers a stellar performance. And performance is definitely the way to describe his work. Not only does he give each character their own unique voice, he must also use some kind of vocal modulating equipment because he'll give echo or reverb to some of the voices. He's fast become one of my favorite narrators.

    "Zombie appocolypse genere, meet the LitRPG genre."

    Wow. Just wow, this is a fun, confusing, strange book. Its kind of like when you were a kid playing with different figures in a sand box just slapping cowboys and transformers together and having a blast. To be honest I was expecting a LitRPG book with zombies in it, but what I got was a zombie book with LitRPG stuffed inside of it and for the most part it works surprisingly well. Most of the characters have their own things going on and get fleshed out enough to get a feel for them. For its part the world our protagonist gets in is interesting if a bit cliché. All in all it has a lot of potential as a series. I'm looking forward to seeing if a book 2 is going to come out anytime soon.

    What made the experience of listening to EverRealm: A LitRPG Novel the most enjoyable?

    Humor written throughout the story line.I was laughing at several instances throughout the whole audiobook!


    What other book might you compare EverRealm: A LitRPG Novel to and why?

    This was my 1st LitRPG book


    What does Jeff Hays bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Excellent vocal inflection at the perfect times


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Of course ! But even though I may want to, my schedule would not allow it, I'm in the Service Industry which requires much public interaction.


    Any additional comments?

    A bit too much on profanity. Where there was sexual interaction,it was done with excellent taste and nothing graphic. Also, the grammar flowed quite well,which is most important for a good listen or read !

    Any additional comments?

    I think Jake Bible has taken a shot at about every genre. This time it is role playing lit and zombies. It actually holds together pretty well and is entertaining with a bit of strained credulity. Talking dogs and intelligent zombies keep things moving along with a bit of romance as well. The book is well narrated by Jeff Hays.

    "A Different Genre"

    This is the first LitRPG offering I have experienced. I like the genre and the idea of combining that with urban fantasy, post apocalypse, zombies. I like the different worlds and sequels that were set up by this first book and I like that each of them presents new challenges and landscapes.

    The story fell apart in two areas for me. It is an ensemble book and in that type of book I have to care about the cast. I never grew to care about this team. Whether they won or lost didn't really matter. I cared more about the world of Everrealm than I did about the people trying to save it. When bad things happened to them, they weren't impactful moments that made me reflect or regret, they were just a plot point.

    The second area that was problematic for me was the narration. This could be a regional thing for me or just a personal preference but I found the voices that were chosen seemed designed to be irritating. The main character spends most of the book doggedly committed to being angry and that got to be a bit much to listen to. There is a balance between being true to the story and giving it a voice that can impact that experience negatively and I think in this case, it went a little sideways.

    I think I might appreciate the next book a bit more as there was some character growth that I feel might show a different type of scenario that will be more conducive to the main POV.

    "A twist on two genres."
    Would you consider the audio edition of EverRealm: A LitRPG Novel to be better than the print version?

    No idea. I only listened to the audiobook.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of EverRealm: A LitRPG Novel?

    When we meet bubby. She is the hysterical digitized grandmother of one of the surviving members in the game/apocalyptic world.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Hays’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never listened to Jeff Hays read before, but I really enjoyed his voice, his tempo, and his characterization skills. He really brought the book to life for me. I would listen to more of his work any day.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The argument between "Bubby" and the "Creator" LOL! Such a wonderful conclusion that was a total surprise, yet fulfilled all the plot promises in an unexpected way. Charming.
