    1. More litrpg goodness!I initially read this on Royal Road. I appreciate this polished version and am definitely looking for more. Love the characters and can't wait for the plot to develop.

    2. The story is interesting and has a different take on the normal LitRPG theme. It was great that the author left out the expletives, which usually annoy me.

    3. I don't give a lot of 5 start ratings. This earned it. Awesome. I want expecting it to be as enjoyable as it was. In my opinion: well written, well edited, well thought out. I can't wait for next one. There must be MORE. And quickly. I'm already going through withdrawal.

    4. I love the first mover advantages of being in an open world MMO game on the first day. Or the first month. Lucius is that lucky guy. He is one of 100,000 selected players invited to play a physically-immersive, virtual reality game called Codename: Freedom. Codename: Freedom is also the title of Apollos Thorne's LitRPG novel. I wanted more as I turned the last page. I also wanted to play a MMORPG again.Lucius' story is not just about levels, loot, gear, skills and selfish ambition. More importan [...]

    5. Survive Week One is another one of those LitRPG games that simply wouldn't function as a real game. Full, possibly psychologically damaging pain enabled/required? Not happening. Luckily, the setup for this somewhat explains it and there are hints of something truly interesting coming from it. This seems to be one of the setups where physical and mental progress achieved in game also strengthens the real body. And with the setup that this is a variant of a military super soldier project well, fut [...]

    6. This was my kind of book, hands down. One of the best LitRPG books I've read yet.And, (unfortunately), completely believable. I can just see this exact kind of thing happening once the technology actually catches up. However, perhaps it is a cautionary tale, but it's one very fine story as well, and something that should be enjoyed.Pick this one up, and go ahead and kick back in your favorite chair, with your favorite format, and have at it, you'll be entertained, amused, and taken along for qui [...]

    7. Forethought and planningI read a lot. Lately litRPG is my favorite. This series looks to be interesting. Full immersion VR like most. This one seems to have been looked at and planned well. There are a lot of clues this is going to get vicious, but so far it's about strong forethought and planning.Unlike many luck isn't a thing. Not at all. Which is somewhat unusual. Personally here I think it's a good thing.Overall a good read nothing to break immersion like some.

    8. Can't wait for the sequelGreat LitRPG. While it definitely takes liberties with the technologies developed in the future, it maintains consistency. The book sets up a very interesting scenario of future development and the impacts on society. While the characterization isn't the main selling point, the background characters proceed a bit from their stereotypical behavior their roles suggest.

    9. Great bookI wasn't sure about this book originally and I only got it because it was being offered free. But really this was an amazing book and I would definitely advise anybody to read it.

    10. Very excitingI enjoyed very much adventuring with a gamer that wasn't at the top of the gamer. So much room to grow. This story was very well put together. I found it very hard to put down. Hurry up and finish writing the next one Apollos!

    11. Great storyThis book grabbed at the start and never let go. It's a great story that never got boring or slow, can't wait for the next one

    12. I really enjoyed the journeyI enjoyed seeing the personal growth of the character. The cast seemed well rounded and believable to me, made me care about them.

    13. Good LitRPGDecent pacing. Good reasoning. Read earlier version, was impressed with the improvements in style, story, and grammar.Looking forward to book 2.

    14. So this book was a very nice suprise with a good litrpg angle, now I am hoping that the author suprise me even more with a book number 2 release in a week! Go go go

    15. Great ReadI was really impressed with this book. It kept a fast pace that made it really hard to turn off the kindle and go to sleep at a decent hour. Can't wait to read more!

    16. Interesting bookMore sci-fi with litrpg elements but worth a read. Full of action and the inner struggle of the MC. .

    17. OutstandingStrong writing style, with original content. Looking forward to the next book. If anything like the first, I'm hoping the wait is short !!😀

    18. Great bookSolid character development. Great sense of humor. Enjoyable and well thought out story line. Tons of action. Really looking forward to book number 2.

    19. Excellent Amazing concept. Great read. Really interesting "game" mechanics. I have read hundreds of LitRPGs this easily makes top 5. Can't wait for the rest of the series.

    20. BetterGot to admit this did turn out better than the original version that I read on Royalroadl.I'll see if I can find more there.I recommend this book for it's originality.

    21. Different than the usualI liked the different feel of the book in that it does not create an overpowered character. The premise is interesting and I can see a lot of potential.What i did not like so much was that the whole book was just one big goblin fight. Felt like I am reading the same thing over and over. A couple individual adventures for the MC would have been a great way to break the monotony. Also some ideas were being repeated what felt like every 10 pages. Some dialogues were bizarre. [...]

    22. Great lit rpg book and I've read virtually all 4+ star lit rpgAbsolutely worth reading. This is a Great lit rpg book and I've read virtually all 4+ star lit rpg books published today. I would put this one in the top 15 or 20. Unique in many ways but still easy to follow along and get into the system. Enjoyable characters with solid team work and development. Highly recommend!

    23. Boring start. Amazing middle and end.I almost stopped reading the book 2 or 3 times. I am so glad I waited until he got into the game.The pregame section is way too long. I would strongly suggest a rewrite where you cut it in half. If you need to set the tone for future parys of the book, mix it in.Honestly I flipped past pages of stuff.That said the actual story was great.

    24. Enjoyable and exciting book.A very good book with great character growth. The main character doesn't just grow in his statics but his mental toughness and his reasons for what he does grows and changes.There is not any swearing that I can remember and no sex or nudity. There is a lot of violence and the descriptions of pain are pretty intense. I enjoyed the book and would recommend the book to high school students and above.

    25. This book is both good and blandI enjoyed this story. The MC is kinda a self insert bland guy. I was a bit disappointed he didn't keep some of the skills he had in the beginning intro game. His relationship with victoria was well written.

    26. Not sure how I feelI liked it but parts of it pissed me off. I have a hard time believing that a seasoned player would be as noobish as the main character. The book seemed to consist of a lot of run over here and watch other people do stuff.

    27. A good start for a LitRPG series. Stuck to MC but included enough on supporting characters to be helpful. Nice ending spot, leaves no huge cliffhanger but makes you want to get to next book.

    28. 3.5 stars maybe even 3.75Pretty good, I did like it and will look for more by this author. This book is not for everyone, it is heavy on gaming but I was fine with it.
