Training Montage!

Instead of four days, this book spans at least a month (I lost track). Our gamer MC struggles with his lack of power and undergoes insane training methods, Psionic abilities are introduced into the game, and the goblins meet the new and reinvigorated players.

When things seem too easy, it is most likely that is the case. I eagerly await the next book, expecting a lot of controversy with the introduction of the new characters.

I love this book series and want more.

The turn in the plot at the end of the book has me super excited for the next installment. Narrator nails it as well as the author. If you liked the first book you will like this one even more I think.

AWESOME!

I wasn't sure about this series after the first book. It had taken me a few listens to stick with survive week one and finish it, but by the time i was 70% through, I was hooked. I eagerly downloaded book 2 and was not disappointed! The Goblin Seige took the momentum from the first book and doubled it. I had no trouble listening through and stayed hood the whole book. The battles and training were exciting, and it was fun to see each character's growth and progression. I enjoyed it a lot and can't wait for book 3!

Inspiring

I've never been more inspired by a book to get up and move. As someone who hates working out, I lately am feeling overly compelling urges to hire a personal trainer and to improve myself. I thought listening to 6 hours of a guy's workout routine would be boring, but somehow it wasn't. As someone who is disabled, it let live vicariously through the MC as he becomes stronger.

Everything about this book series has been perfect, and the ending to this book even more so. The MC finally comes out of his shell, and enters the big leagues. If you enjoyed book one, you'll love book two.

Amazing story and..

The story is deep and captivating. You can feel what the characters feel and in this series they feel plenty. A great story. I can't wait for the next installment.

Enjoyable twist on litrpg

The angle is unexpected, so you don’t go down the familiar, yet well loved line of a typical litrpg.

love it

I love this author for more reasons than I can really put into words, but one reason is always clear. I read or listen to 20+ novels every month, this of course means I read a lot of subpar material. One thing too many authors do is curve characters to fit story plots making them make the WORST decisions possible. Even supposed genius characters are made to make idiot decisions. This is never the case with Mr. Thorne. Even bad decisions are not completely kill yourself idiotic and honestly it's like coming up for air after nearly drowning in a mire, every time I get the opportunity to read or listen to his work. This series moreso than his other one.

I loved this book, as I loved the first one and I see so many avenues of expansion from it becoming enders game like, to this becoming a series that could span genres into military space opera. I could see this becoming 5+ novels easily and reach the ranks of Harry Potter popularity, though it may just end up being among the standard of what all litrpg/scifi should be. Either way, I love it all and always look forward to more.

Excellent follow up!!

I’m not normally one to write a review I’ve normally already moved on to the next book needing to be read/listened to. However The Goblin Siege was a superb follow up to book on in the series. I really can’t wait for book three. Excellent work Apollos!

You did it again!!!

its a must read and is one of the best books in this genre. No spoilers, epic story as usual. player vs world. only depressing thing is that I have to wait until book 3 is out now.

I will most likely listen to it a second possibly third time this month!
