    I Feel Like I've Played This Game Before The story focuses on Luke, who volunteers to beta test a game using a character he has named Luke. Hackers scramble and encrypt the game data and as a result he finds himself stuck in the game along with countless other beta testers. Making the most of things, he works as a botanist, eventually joins a guild, and travels to understand the world he finds himself in and hoping to find a way out of the game. This book is at its best when Luke and his guild mem I Feel Like I've Played This Game Before The story focuses on Luke, who volunteers to beta test a game using a character he has named Luke. Hackers scramble and encrypt the game data and as a result he finds himself stuck in the game along with countless other beta testers. Making the most of things, he works as a botanist, eventually joins a guild, and travels to understand the world he finds himself in and hoping to find a way out of the game. This book is at its best when Luke and his guild members "Travellers 4 Hire" are working together for their shared goals. I have played with many players and characters like Penny and Backstab, complete with ability macros that spam catch phrases. The game mechanics, as provided, appear to work as intended even if sometimes they feel more filler than substance. Luke finds himself taking a Ranger class which is a nice blend of ranged damaged, high cost single target DPS skills, healing magic, and a pet; these skills feel well thought out and balanced especially when compared with equal classes in the game world he finds himself in. The encounters feel exactly as scripted as one found in a top tier MMO, which is a boon given the source world. That said, the story also has some inherent problems. The way that Vortex Industries, the corporation that owns the gameworld, handles the assault on their servers is completely unbelievable. At one point about one third of the way through the story, the main character is informed that the company owning the MMO is going to be helping everyone who is stuck in the game by allowing standard VR players a chance to play. This will allow the company to see what is going on in their game world, since they had to cut all of their connections into the game. Instead of creating new, secure connections... the company is going to open up their servers to the outside world. Instead of helping players survive with weapons and armor, the company intends on add more competition for them. I half expect to find out Vortex Industries is actually in on these players being trapped. There is also something to be said about the number of stats and skills. This is what the LitRPG community would refer to as a "crunchy" book... but some of the numbers thrown around seem like they don't make much sense and were pulled out of thin air. This will probably only be irritating to a minority of readers though, especially as the skill usage and acquisitions themselves are fairly smart. The book spends a fair amount of time exploring Luke's decisions in regards to what skills he trains, and he ultimately decides to lean on his ability to tame and use beasts over the use of magics. This makes sense for the character but also feels really suboptimal given the game world's early focus on magic and just how overpowered it is. This is a choice I won't personally fault, but readers expecting a character to make plans that exploit the game world to its fullest may be disappointed. Ultimately, this is an enjoyable read, if not one that plays it too safe to the established formula. This book is easy to recommend to younger readers, the audio book is absolutely solid, and even at its worse the book proves itself serviceable.

    Good litRPG with an interesting twist on the NPC vs Player conflicts and Player resurrection.

    I quite often I go back to a book I have finished months or even years later, but never have I wanted to go back to page 1 as soon as I have finished a story.

Endless Fantasy Online gripped me from the start, right through to the end without becoming stale anywhere. The story is well thought out, growing with intensity at a steady pace. The character development was smooth, and the interaction between characters felt natural rather than forced or jaded. Those of you who are new to the Role Playing genre of books, or Virtual Reality will be rewarded with an explanation of the concepts of the genre that are explained as the story progresses. These explanations are introduced throughout and become a natural part of the story rather than feeling forced. Those of you who are experienced with this genre, will feel comfortable with these explanations as they form part of the natural character progression that is familiar with this genre. The narration is wonderful, each character has his or her own voice and accent that becomes immediately identifiable. There is enough emotion that you feel immersed and form a certain bond with the characters. The only downside to this, is that I immediately want to listen to the next book.

    It is a very common trope of litrpgs books for the main character to get stuck in the game and it is used again in the first book of this series, luckily though the book is not hampered by opting for the familiar as a starting point and proceeds strongly with an entertaining story that is helped by a strong supporting cast that nicely supplements the likeable main character. Individually, the cast may not have quite as much depth as will be the case once we get to later books, but work well toge It is a very common trope of litrpgs books for the main character to get stuck in the game and it is used again in the first book of this series, luckily though the book is not hampered by opting for the familiar as a starting point and proceeds strongly with an entertaining story that is helped by a strong supporting cast that nicely supplements the likeable main character. Individually, the cast may not have quite as much depth as will be the case once we get to later books, but work well together as a whole and provide some of the typical character types that would be recognisable to longterm mmo gamers. The narration is generally good, but could benefit from a slightly larger range of tones for the baddies to make them a little more distinctive, on the whole though it definitely enhances the book. Overall, an enjoyable read in it's own right and a strong opener to this series too, I will be interested in seeing any sequels to it.

    Good I enjoyed the book. The MC wasn’t OP he also want a pushover. A good mix in between to make him interesting. The supporting characters are okay. I say okay mainly because the characters in his party aren’t really around all that much. There was also no description of the characters sort of like a backstory. You can sort of tell what their personalities are so that helps. Hopefully in book the author will make a greater effort in giving the supporting characters more depth.

The animal companion and both of The MCs mentors/trainers seem interesting. I look forward to seeing more from them. No real complaints besides a few noticeable typos in the earlier parts of the book. Referring to the animal companion as “he” after the gender of the animal was confirmed to be female occurred a few times.

    The kind of litrpg I was wanting I had been looking for a litrpg book that is something like a normal mmo type experience an this hit the nail on the head for me. Aside from the stuck in the game trope, the main character starts playing get small fetch quests and meets people to group with. This felt like what happens when you play one yourself. Some reviews say the main character makes dumb decisions. I didn't think so at all. This is well worth a read and i am anxious to read the next book.

    Enjoyed it a lot! Loved this book. Can't wait for number 2 which is later this month I believe. Great job. Solid story. Enjoyed the way the world works and the way classes work. I liked the mc and the support characters. Would have liked to see a bit more of them connecting together. It seemed they all kinda just became bffs too quickly and more needed to happen between them to truely get those relationships to their current status. Great book highly recommend.

    Rare Gem of a book Occasionally we come across a book that is a rare unknown gem in LITRPG. This was a very good story that is well worth the read. It's a well written, easy, fun and entertaining read. Enjoyable story and I am looking forward to the next book.

I am not going to share my reasoning, thoughts on the book, or any opinions that would influence your decision to read it. It is my opinion that Art needs to be experienced at an individual level. You are the only one that can determine what you like and don’t like. Don’t let others make that decision for you. You should definitely read the book and completely ignore all of the reviews. Or not if you don’t think this book is for you. That choice is all yours and the beauty of art appreciation. You are a much better judge of what you will like than anyone here.  If you are a member of the IAK Guild (thanks, Jason) or part of the review police, feel free to criticize me and challenge my philosophy on reviewing art. I think we all love a good debate. The forums are open and I welcome your comments. I was wrong in my previous request to get you to stop. Your blatant disregard for that request has led to some fun discussions. Growth is important for us all. Cheers

    Excellent book that draws you into a world of magical adventure! If you like middle earth but with a futuristic twist with lots of action mixed with humor and and great characters you will enjoy, then this book is a fantastic read. As to the RPG Side of things I am a newbie. So I can't give you an accurate description of that but I can't say for someone who does not know much about RPG It was very enjoyable!

    Good start Little formulaic but the foundation is laid for future books. The main character isn’t terrible. The nova have personality. The main story is decent and I look forward to seeing more progression in book 2. Easy read and Very enjoyable.

    A bit naive, a bit derivative, but on the whole cute and entertaining. I absolutely adored Ringo and Lucas's interactions with her were a definite highlight of the story.

I can't say I'm eagerly awaiting the next book, but I'd definitely be happy to pick it up when it goes on discount. xD One warning, this is definitely one of those endless stat-dump of doom audiobooks. If you don't want to hear every skill description and the full character sheet for just about every stat change in mind-numbing repetitious detail, you're out of luck. I would say just read the kindle book, but the narrator did such a good job I honestly can't say I'd have enjoyed the text as well alone.

    I enjoyed the concept of the story and the series definitely does have potential I look forward to seeing the book progress as well as the character progression. I don't know if it was just the narrator as a hole that I was not a fan of or if it was just the inflection that he put into it but listening to him talk for Ringo and listening to him say backstab catchphrase made me want to stop listening to the book immediately. That, however, is a small part of the book it's definitely still worth re I enjoyed the concept of the story and the series definitely does have potential I look forward to seeing the book progress as well as the character progression.

    Unique MC Class I liked that the MC is a Ranger/Beast Tamer class, I haven’t come across that combination in LitRPG yet. I liked the guild/party interaction and questing scenes. And I liked the interaction of the MC and certain NPCs and with his animal companion. These things allow for character growth in future books which I would like to read. The only thing I didn’t like was the motivation of the antagonist, the best villains create a gray area where the audience has room to sympathize or unde Unique MC Class I liked that the MC is a Ranger/Beast Tamer class, I haven’t come across that combination in LitRPG yet.

    A nice "stuck in a game" series. There's nothing really new or groundbreaking in the book, but it does do what it does very well. Will definitely be picking up the next one. Narration was a bit on the lacking side. Every "bad guy" had the same voice/accent and it felt more like it was being read as opposed to it being acted.

    I haven't read this yet, didn't mean to rate it 4 stars. Since I can't take my rating down, I'll just keep it at 5 until I read it :) Oh and honestly, it's called " The PHOENIX Kingdom" how could this book not be good?!

    First half of the book is decent, then near the end, when MC picks class and final battle, kind of lame and he lost me there. Not sure if I will read next installment.
