Publisher's Summary

Barliona: a virtual world jam-packed with monsters, battles - and, predictably, players. Millions of them come to Barliona, looking forward to the things they can't get in real life: elves and magic, dragons and princesses, and unforgettable combat. The game has become so popular that players now choose to spend months online without returning home. In Barliona, anything goes: You can assault fellow players, level up, become a mythical hero, a wizard, or a legendary thief. The only rule that attempted to regulate the game demanded that no player be allowed to feel actual pain. But there's an exception to every rule. For a certain bunch of players, Barliona has become their personal hell. They are criminals sent to Barliona to serve their time. They aren't in it for the dragons' gold or the abundant loot. All they want is to survive the virtual inferno. They face the ultimate survival quest.

    "Excellent with just one regret..."

    Loved this book. Anyone who's played RPG will enjoy and relate to this story. While listening to Survival Quest I mentioned it to my son and bought the Kindle version for him. He devoured it. He started reading it at 10PM and finished the book at 5AM in one reading.

    My only regret is that there are currently only two books in the series and the second one will go by way too fast. I thoroughly enjoy reading more installments in this story line.

    Story
    "Great Narrator, Great book"

    So this book takes place in the fictional future with a very futuristic video game. The world outside of the game, the real world is not very important. So the majority of the book take place in a MMO VR game, and some of things that are different from the typical fantasy is that the adventure takes place in an MMO and these imitations are embraced. So if you are not much of a gamer this book might not be for you.,

    The narrator elevates the story, and its very easy to picture what is going on, and you get the extra context of tone and such from the voice of the narrator. The narrator does an amazing job.

    I really enjoyed listening to this novel, so would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Fantasy and Gaming (not necessarily videogames). This series looks to be a champion of the genre of LitRPG.

    "Very hard book to put down."

    Beware! This is an adventure book, filled with fun and excitement. If you are looking for something serious or steamy, this may not be the book for you. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and find myself looking forward to a continuation of the story.

    "Loved it!"

    If you like mmorpg's good chance you will like this. I finished it in two days and was shocked. It went so fast I just could not stop listening. If you liked the Play to Live series you will like this.

    "Amazing and entertaining"

    I absolutely loved this book kept me awake for hours and hours and hours! Actually didn't sleep till I completed the second book in this series. The level up and stats were distracting but actually made the whole thing seem more realistic like I was there.

    "Excellent Sub-Genre"

    I liked the strategy, the technical aspects of the game and the humour. I recommend that you find somewhere comfy to sit as once you start you will want to keep on listening to the end.

    Story
    "Ever played an MMORPG? Then the Protagonist is You"
    What did you like most about Survival Quest?

    Recaptures all the reasons people love to play online games with each other, and translates it into an interesting, and relatively relatable storyline. There is a fashion in books these days that turmoil relates to pages turned, but with this story the main character seems to have the same initiative and common sense ordinary people are blessed with, so there's no need to yell "you're making a mistake" at a fictional character that can't hear your wisdom.
