Publisher's Summary

Audiobook 7 of the best-selling Eden's Gate series!

The Scourge have launched an attack, and the Freelands are overrun with Ergoth’s army of orcs and goblins. Travel is no longer safe, trade is at a standstill, and Edgewood Village is in ruins.

With the guild in desperate need of gold, Gunnar treks through the battle zone to complete an unresolved quest and is faced with a moral dilemma unlike anything he’s ever experienced in Eden’s Gate.

His choices lead him to join forces with some unlikely companions and sends him straight into the heart of the Wastelands.

Orcs would never allow humans to enter the Wastelands freely, so how exactly will he get inside, and what secrets are lurking deep below the Wastelands' surface?

In an unforgiving land filled with bloodthirsty beasts and monsters, Gunnar will be left questioning: Who is the real monster, and who’s the worst monster of them all?

Kind of childish but a decent story

I like the story but it’s probably more suitable for 14 year olds. Very childish and quite shallow interactions. Everything is a fist bump, “dude” “cmon bro”. Half of the dialogue is the main character saying “what” and not picking up very obvious context clues.

Cool concept. But can be kind of cringe.

The performance isn’t the worst… but it’s not very good. British accents are TERRIBLE. Seriously.

A lot of the character sound the same. There’s only about 5 voices or so.

no more

the world is good concept, story line is good, the side characters are mostly good Aaron is annoying as hell, but the worst is the Mc he is a whiney, self absorbed, MORON, that acts like the world has to be fair and gets pissy when it isn't, and the the romance is lame "I can't decide which elf I love, or do I still want my lost gf".

I am done with this series

Good book but Gunner is getting dumber by the day.

Good book, but the main character is such a whiney little idiotic twerp that it almost ruins the book. add in that he's scamming on two NPC elf girls while whining about not being able to find his old girlfriend and constantly making poor decisions and drug use. He is one of the most unlikable main characters i've ever read about.

Disappointing

If there is a situation with a good choice and a bad choice, the main character always makes the bad choice. It will be obvious to the reader every time this happens. The main character is not a good person either, although you can tell the writer thinks he is. He’s selfish, dishonest, and sexist - but the writer probably does not see this. In every book so far I have read the line “a man has needs” or another line of the same intent. It’s creepy and a bit gross. I keep hoping this story will get better because the world and the concept are great, but it doesn’t.

Awesome book but Pavi..

I wish more than anything that Pavi would have tried to keep the same voice narrative.. sounds like he's got a wicked cold or his nuts dropped hella hard. Either way, AWESOME STORY EDWARD BRODY!!!!

Solid af

Solid book, big fan of the series. My only complaint is the fact is I gotta play the waiting game again for the next book. I got spoiled when I originally found this series ane there were 6 books out already.

Painfully bad

I love this series at the beginning but it gets worse and worse with every book. And this book is horrible to read and with 11 hours to go I think I’m just not gonna move forward anymore. There is no longer any progression and it is just one bad event after another. The great thing about a littlerpg is that they progress. Not this time…You can literally skip to the pount i am at in this book and have missed nothing

A shining example of what litrpg can look like when well executed

Great plot, interesting characters, brilliant combo of in and out of “game” story in a way that leaves you wanting to hear more of both stories, the only thing I can say is that it feels like the love triangle is getting in the way of certain parts of the overall story, it dosent add as much as I had hoped it would to gunner’s story and I hope that it can be wrapped up in a book or two, however as far as love triangles go it’s really well done, and it has definitley helped to define Gunnar’s character more in past books :)

Difficult To Complete

To say I was looking forward to this coming out would be an understatement. I was so disappointed when it finally did. The MC is stupid and always makes the wrong choices. On top of that he moans way to much, acts like everything is on him, it isn't, delegation man. As for the sex, or lack of, the MC just needs to shut up and make a choice.

Pleaseeeee Enough of the sexual repression

I honestly don’t know what’s going on with the author, I think the lack of his own physical contact over a world wide lockdown has really influenced his writing this time around.

I’m a big fan of Edens gate but I’m am having to give this book a rest after 28 out of 58 chapters I just can’t take the MC constant bitching about not getting sex, and the way he is treating a guild mate is just not the kinda message that should be put out there. Please sort this out else Edens gate will be no better than those 1980 manga BS

Good story, stupid MC

Love the concept, and it has allot of potential..
But the MCs decision making makes it allmost unbearable to read.

Still going strong

Another enjoyable listen from the Edens Gate series, and looking forward to the next one. Hopefully Edward is on the mend and the next book comes a bit easier for him.

Overall enjoyed this story, but I do agree with some of the other reviewers on the main characters decision making (especially when it comes to potentially jeopardizing alliances).

Looking forward to more guild development and growth in the next one, which it seems to have teased at the end!

Oh, and tell Pavi to bring Oz's original voice back - he was a lot less Southern this time...
