    Rothman hits a home run Not quite fantasy, not quite science fiction but a good blend of both. Entertaining thriller with solid world building. I’m ready for the next book. Don’t miss the addendum at the end where he delves briefly into the science behind the magic

    Excellent book Science fiction, Lit RPG, and real science blended into an engaging and entertaining tale. Three strong characters, not counting sentient blades, that are all well developed and different helps keep the story moving. Highly recommended, and looking forward to the next book.

    This is a combination of portal fantasy and litRPG. I don't generally read either, so I'm not familiar with the usual tropes, or how aware the characters (or readers) are supposed to be of the mechanics. It's been a very long time since I had anything to do with The Most Popular RPG in the World(TM). References to character stats, levelling up and Peabo being told to read the monster manual were pretty up front. I found it a bit strange that Peabo took all this stuff in at face value and played This is a combination of portal fantasy and litRPG.

References to character stats, levelling up and Peabo being told to read the monster manual were pretty up front. I found it a bit strange that Peabo took all this stuff in at face value and played it straight, so to say. Maybe he'd never come across RPGs. I liked how Peabo tried to fit the new world's magic/powers into a scientific framework, and I liked how he came into his "quest" as an adult with a professional and academic background. Although that meant he wasn't full of teenage angst, neither was his personality very distinctive. His background seemed mainly there to smooth the plot ie to explain why he had fighting skills already, and could come up with inventions. On the down side, that meant that he was never seriously challenged - either practically or morally or socially. In keeping with the RPG feel, the story was essentially a series of encounters that the three major characters had to work through to reach... a point where there's a hint at the sequel. The characters did what their roles required of them, and worked more or less as a team. In summary, a fun and easy read without needing to invest too much in the characters.

    Very enjoyable viewpoint Very well written and professionally edited. I enjoyed the author's approach to the alternate universe. I personally tend to prefer more stats in my LitRPG, but found it such an enjoyable read, that I quickly overcame my initial hesitation. I will definitely be following this author and will start the next book as soon as possible despite the backlog of other series I am reading.

    I found this story to be a fascinating concept and can't wait to read any further work written about The Plainswalker . It is an interesting concept and would like to read the rest! I am unfortunately an old woman who has always been a bookstore and a dreamer.many years ago I had an out of body experience this happened twice, but has not been repeated since.

    Book one Mistakes: The book is missing one of it's pictures. Also this book ends at 88% and has a preview of book two. Plot: Mostly this is just about the MC getting used to the new world he found himself in. Characters: I feel like the characters need more depth and so does the world. 6/10 Book one Mistakes: The book is missing one of it's pictures.

    Early in the book I was reminded of "old school" science fiction (not the 95% of SyFi that is prevalent at the moment). It starts of with, like, SCIENCE and stuff ;) shortly thereafter it blends in to a fantasy with elements of science. Or at least, fantasy (magic) that has a relationship with science. It's very well done too. There's good storytelling here, and the worldbuilding is wide open, as the story really only takes place in three locations (plenty more - to explore).

    Surprisingly Good. Came across this author a soup,e of days ago. After reading a couple of paragraphs I could almost taste that he is very good. Good story with very believable characters, cannot wait for next in series.

    Decent book. It is a decent book. I found it frustrating how often the main character didn't have his questions answered. The flow of the book was a little off, but I think that will improve as the author writes more 🙂 Decent book. It is a decent book.

    Awesome addictive story Featuring an Awesome genre Mashup that is non-crunchy. It bends genres mildly, and is very addictive. At least to me. This is an excellent example of escapist fiction, that might actually be factual.

    Great first book to a new series I can’t wait for more. This is a great take on fantasy/sci-fi/techno thriller combo. I always love the amount of actual thought about real science that this author puts into his books.

    Good Enjoyable, a bit light on the gaming functionality and what I consider LitRPG. People can’t automatically see others stats and there is no central authority / system managing everything. Still an enjoyable read.

    Awesome story Such a unique take on a fantasy series. Peabo and his "partner" have such great chemistry, and his mentor is funny and wise. Great world building, and lots of lore. The LitRPG elements are woven in nicely, doesn't feel tacked on. Very highly recommended. Awesome story Such a unique take on a fantasy series.

    Great read! One of the best LitRPG’s I’ve read to date! The world building is phenomenal. It transitions so seamlessly that it reads like a perfect fusion of classic fantasy and LitRPG. I can’t wait to read the V next book.

    Very Well Written! This is different than anything I have read in the fantasy genre. I read it in one day because I couldn't stop. It is part sci-fi, military and fantasy all mixed together with plenty of action. Loved it and can't wait for the sequel! Well done Mr Rothman. Very Well Written!

    Good Book So a lot of books I read, I lose interest after a few pages or chapters. Then I ditch the book. This one actually kept my interest from beginning to end. Looking forward to the next one. Try it out.
