Getting eaten alive is the worst! Stabbings, maimings, and corrosive black magic are not that great either, but you really don't want to be a wolf treat!
That is the kind of hands on, "teeth on", education you get when you are summoned to The Land.
James did not want to be summoned!
Not really... well a maybe, just a bit!
But he had certainly not agreed to be summoned!
Well technically speaking he HAD agreed, but good god, who had the time to read all of that fine print when there was epic gaming to be done!
When DangerZone Industries had released the latest and greatest VRMMORPG, James, and millions of other virtual reality players, had sought purpose and self-definition in this new world. The tag line "Live the life your soul was meant for" had captured the hearts and minds of his entire generation.
The Land, was the largest and most dynamic virtual reality game of all time. James and his friends had devoted countless hours, and become one of the top teams in the game. They were at the brink of greatness, but then there was this light!
When he was actually summoned to the Land, it was both disturbing and exhilarating. When he then became entangled in the eternal war of sprites and goblins, the unsavory practices of the local king, and had a memorable night at the inn called the Whistling Hen, he came to one clear conclusion: Again, getting eaten alive is really really the worst!
While uncovering such deep philosophical knowledge, James will forge a place in this new world, and hopefully avoid the machinations of those who want him to destroy it. What does it mean to be a Chaos Seed anyway?

Thoroughly enjoyed The Founding. I can't wait for book 2 to come out on audio. If you like hero's that level up and a bit of town building then you'll love this book!
"Stats, Quests, and adventure."
Lots of information that lays the ground work for the rest of the series. Buy the book so that you can see all the stat info.
"A Story as a game playing a game, while being real life!!!"

Check ... Loot ... Check ... More Loot ... Check ... And More Loot ... Then listen to this book already and get your book lore rank 1 ...
"Bing" Do you accept quest? "listen/read book one The Land: Founding"
Failure: Death, no Awesomeness, and the fine print of any drug on tv...
Do you accepted Quest?
"A definite must read!"
This series is very much like the "Play to Live" series. So if you like that series, you'll love this one. You definitely want more when it ends. And I can't wait until more "Chaos Seeds" come into the story.

"I WANT MORE!!!"
This story sucked me in right from the very beginning. While the plot was not the most original, MMORPG and VR stories are rapidly becoming an exceptional genre all of their own, the author manged to create his own unique twist to it. Rather than runaway tech trapping people in a game, The Land has a demon create a video game as a way of tricking people into signing their souls to his world to plant their "chaos seeds". I was forced to binge "read" this book and now I am eagerly awaiting the sequel.
I love the MMORPG genre and I love the way this author skillfully wove together the fantasy and game elements together to create a world that simply drew the reader in and made them eager to sign their own contract.
I liked Rictor/James the best.
Before giving your agreement, always read the fine print.
"First book of this style and I enjoyed immensely."
First book of this style and I enjoyed immensely.
