Publisher's Summary

Victoria Blythe wanted adventure. She wanted to explore the world and escape from the strict etiquette of British nobility. With her father fighting in India, the governess assigned to raise her controlled every aspect of her life.

The financial downturn of a friend of the family would lead to her sister's longtime engagement turning into an immediate marriage.

Victoria's thirst for adventure and tomboy ways would not prepare her for the sudden advent of the apocalypse.

Can Victoria and her friends survive this new world of classes and skills?

Join Victoria and her family on a LitRPG adventure, unlike any other!

Just OK....

The story is not bad. Well written. But it is pretty slow. The characters never leave the starter area. I get that its probably the start of a series. But, at this point I've read/listened to so many LitRPG books where the characters fight bugs, goblins and wolves that the start I'm just over it. Maybe the next book will have more adventure/growth. But, for me the story really didn't go anywhere. Little movement. Just my opinion.

Good BUT

I love the concept and even the story. But the beginning is just a bit slow. Talks about a description being talking down in this litrpg and then does the same narratively to the reader at the beginning.

Slow start, but ended up great!

I really enjoyed listening to this book. I particularly liked the concept of Victorian Steampunk England suddenly becoming a part of an MMO and people adapting to it with no prior experience. Like his other book, I really enjoyed this author's fresh take on this genre!

rough beginning, just push through. story is great

What amazed me the most is how absolutely different this books characters are from the authors previous books. Different setting, mannerisms, genders, trains of thought, everything. So A+ for that. Its actually a really great story and def worth a credit. Its a victorian era minor nobility house suddenly has to deal with monsters and stats for the gist of it. Pretty interesting take on it. Also the characters are all dynamic, their personalities change over time. Here is my one word of warning though. You have to get through the beginning of the book. If you are annoyed by propriety and outdated customs, just buckle down. I hate that stuff, but as soon as the world shifts the book gets really good. Give it a listen. The book didnt leave a cliff hanger but it left it open for more. So I hope there is a book 2. We'll have to see.

wuthering heights meets litrpg D&D.

it's a fun book , it starts a little slow, but once the world changes, it has the characters freak out as anyone would. I'm looking forward to the next book.

A great twist on LitRPG

A nice change from the traditional LitRPG. Great character development and sets a good base for a continuing story. The noble culture makes me glad I was born in the time period though.

Jane Austin meets LitRPG.

Definitely worth a listen if you are into the genre. A perfect narrator for the story.

Enjoyable

The story was enjoyable. I would love to read a sequel. I always enjoy a good story that isn't full of needless swearing and sex. This is a book that I listened to with my daughters.

read the kindle free

conflicted good premise and I like the main character weapon, but haven't finished this yet will be difficult, main character is a lot stupid when it comes to the fights first book where I actually prefer to skip the fight scenes. she is a idiot and I hope by the end she gets a little better. hard to listen to, maybe a sequel with her using some points to increase her intelligence. oh uea this is a litrpg

I had no idea Victorian England was metric

If I were to summarize this book in a single sentence it would be easy: A wonderful idea let down by average writing and bad narration. I still found the story enjoyable, especially the conflict between the Victorian mores and the un-reality of modern gaming. However, every now an then there would be a single detail completely breaking immersion - just like the protagonist using metric system. The real problem for me was the narration. Especially one word. Debuff. Every time it appeared it stuck out just as if it was cut out from a different audio file. I had to continuously rewind and replay sections, because ihe strangely accented word was the only thing I could concentrate on.
