Publisher's Summary

One captain’s death might turn out to be humanity’s best chance at survival.

As humanity expands into the stars, it discovers the universe is a hostile place.

When Captain Slater of the USS Franklin is assigned to a deep-space reconnaissance mission, his ship is destroyed by an unknown alien race.

Much to his surprise, Slater isn’t killed - he’s transformed. He is now a “derelict” - a consciousness bound to his old vessel. 

Slater must quickly adapt to his new existence before raiders, alien armies, and mysterious forces seek to destroy him for a second and final time.

Worth continuing

A little slow at the start, but I found it to be worth continuing to listen. By the end, I was wishing the second book was already available. I found the voices a little distracting. Even the female voices sound masculine (especially the first one). With the technology available, the sound production personnel should be able to do a better job even if the voice actor can’t. On the up side, the grammar the author uses and his ability to describe exciting situations without needing to endlessly swear; I salute you. Well written! Keep up the good work.

no stupid mc

I have listen to alot of litrpg audiobooks and both the story + narration is really good. I was first a little sceptical about the space genre and dungeon core mash-up but Dean Henegar really delivered!

Original and Great Lit-RPG

When I was a teenager I played table top war games at my local comic book shop. One of my favorite was one that involved having a 4 man squad clear a space ship of xenos. Listening to this gave me pleasant flashback of playing in that comic book shop and all the fun I had. Definitely an original take on the dungeon core lit/rpg genre that is enjoyable and evolves into a very entertaining story. Jack Voraces, an amazing narrator, does an exceeding great job of putting you into the story and portrays each character distinctly with a great range of voices. This is one of my favorite lit/rpg of this year, worth a listen. I received a free copy of this book for review purposes at my request, my review is voluntary and unbiased.

A total must have

This is a must have, it’s quite enjoyable, really a pleasure to listen to on a drive, though I found myself driving slower than I normally would simply to have more listening time for this, all in all 10/10 recommended for anyone interested in the LitRPG genre and anyone even remotely familiar to the Dungeon Core genre

GAMER BOOK / CROSS COUNTRY

All in all this is a decent story. It would be great if you're a gamer because lots of the dialog sounds like someone in a video game. Next odd thing is, what were the sound engineers thinking??? Okay, the whole book is about US Navy and US Army and USA stuff but they have a British guy reading it, putting various Great Britain accents on US military personnel. Very weird. Casting guys need to read the book or do a better job. Caught myself ff thru the high pitch annoying gamer dialog of statistics for the derelict. Other than that it's a decent book but one of the few I'd recommend reading over listening to.

Absolutely love this book

This was really good I didn't know what to really expect from this book but I gave it a try because all of the authors other books have been really good and this one was no exception. This was absolutely fun creative and enjoyable I loved the set up of the story it's fantasy without being in the fantasy setting and it works really well adds a lot of Mystery and anticipation to find out what's going to happen next. the one thing I have to say is a found the little bit of repetition of the full read out of a research and list of mobs and that kind of like a little bit cluttered and filler so that wasn't the greatest I hope it gets trimdown especially as the derelict grows but other than that truly is a fantastic read. It should also be noted that Jack Voraces did an absolutely Stellar job with this book absolutely amazing read.

Fantastic

I enjoyed Dean Henegar's Limitless Land books, so I was excited to see a new series from him, and I wasn't disappointed! This is a fun different take on dungeon core series, I'm very excited for the next book. The narration is excellent as Jack just continues to improve, each performance is better than the last.

Fantasy Dungeon Core in Space!

This was a fun read, and really enjoyed the storyline. Being a W40k and Space Hulk fan It was fun to get some space hallway fighting action. Wasn't ready for the story to end and looking forward to more. Book 2 Hurry up!

Interesting take on a dungeon core book

The typical dungeon core happens on a planet BUT this book takes that idea one step further. This book is about a dunegon core in space! It brings both fantasy, litrpg and sci-fi together seemelessy! This book is fun and engaging and the MC makes some interesting decisions. Its always a bonus when the MC has a brain! I really enjoyed this take of a dungeon core book and look forward to book 2! Final note the narrator did a fantastic job with his character voices, he really brings the story alive!

Surprisingly Addictive

Well I love my Sci Fi space opera’s. This is one to enjoy. The plot is uniquely fun, and very enjoyable. It feels open enough to get a good 7 books after. Let’s hope so. 😊

Good entry for the series

I should preface this by saying it was a gifted book from the narrator however the opinions are my own. Also possible spoilers. I really enjoyed the book itself. It's a different take on the fantasy races as well as another LITRPG book that I can zone out to as I work. It's not to wordy and very easy to follow. If you enjoyed The Gam3 or System Apocalypse then chances are you will enjoy this. For the narration I have super high standards and I think Jack Voraces does a good job. No one is going to be RC Bray however he is not boring and monotone like many audiobook narrators and I would check out both more of this series as well as anything else he does.
