Publisher's Summary

When the real world is threatened, it's up to the players in a virtual one to save it.

Van Vanyushin doesn't see the point in ever leaving the beautiful digital world of the game he loves - and for good reason. In the industrial wasteland he calls home, it is often the only way people can experience life's simplest pleasures. But his allegiance to the game is tested when an ambitious CIA agent named Sang Ngo calls upon him to help as she goes undercover in the game to investigate Draco - the corporation responsible for creating the massively popular role-playing game Dragon Kings of the New World.

Sang is a gifted hacker who feels nothing but contempt for those who waste their lives in what she sees as a false reality...but when people start dying in the game, she must find out why. Van, a talented gamer, is her guide to navigate the world, level up their newbie characters fast, and get into some of the most dangerous areas of the game. He dreams of becoming a pro gamer sponsored by Draco one day, but his partnership with Sang threatens to expose secrets from his past that could jeopardize those plans.

Now, they will have to put aside their differences to discover whatever - or whoever - is killing players, but the truth they find is darker than either of them imagined....

    "A unqiue twist on the LitRPG genre."

    The Star Dragon is the first book in the Dragon Kings of the New World series, a brand new LitRPG novel that adds quite a unique spin the genre. Invasion via cyber space?!? While there a few inconsistencies here and there, the story is pretty dang fun and is loaded with likable characters and plenty of action. Also a ton of laughs...making one of the leads a wiseass and having one of his first pranks backfire on him was great. First time I've seen a bard be a lead character! Quite interested to see where the story goes from here.

    The book is narrated by Nik Magill, and as always he does a fantastic job of bringing the characters and story to life. He never disappoints.

    I received a copy of this audio title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Story
    "Gamer Chow"

    It's so easy to put off gamers as people who do nothing but play video games 24/7 and eat gamer chow... Well, that's Van in a nutshell. He wants nothing more than to be a pro gamer and have people attend to his every need while he plays his VR game. When he's enlisted by the CIA to help Sang explore the world of a video game, his life and hers is turned upside down.

    I loved the interaction between the characters and I loved envisioning the worlds created by Dante Doom. There was several twists and turns to this book and I'm excited to see where this series goes. While there is definitely room to grow in this series, the book does end without having a massive cliffhanger (yay because I hate when that happens).

    If you enjoy LitRPGs, this is definitely a book to pick up. If you just love fantasy and want to explore a LitRPG, this would be an excellent book to start with.

    This review copy audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge.
