Publisher's Summary

Boredom was killing Jay, not in a dramatic way, but in the life of stifled potential way.

He wanted more out of life. Then, without any warning, he found himself part of an experiment with not even so much as the courtesy of a "how do you do?".

It wasn't really all bad, though. The fit, busty babes outnumbered him 30 to one. Now, Jay has to fight to survive. He has to conquer the dungeon or die. On top of that, he has to juggle a bunch of gorgeous women who are all stuck in the same life or death fight as him. If ever there was a time for bonding....

But most confusing of all are the messages in his dreams. Messages that seem to be coming from himself.

This book features unconventional relationships and some sexual content. It is intended for mature listeners.

You must Descend

From the moment I started this book it was a mindf**k. Ignore the summary displayed. pay attention to this, Ready?

What would you do if you were pulled from your life, given, strange superpowers told you were being drugged and that if you wanted to survive you had to grow stronger? Well this book goes into a very detailed version of this for a man named Jay. Watch as Jay struggles to be a good man while under the affects of mind altering drugs and constantly treated like a villain or piece of meat to be used by those around him as they see fit. How will this go?

Great listen

I really enjoyed what seems to be the first book in this series. This is an interesting twist on a lit RPG. It has character building with a little bit of stats showing without going overboard. I think the world building is well done and the personalities of the different characters are well portrayed. There are good Sci-Fi elements as well as fantasy elements Incorporated into the story. I enjoyed the learning times and the sexy times that the characters go through. It also has tough and horrific things as well. All in all it has a good mix of many things that produce a well-written story in my opinion. I really enjoyed this book and so I am going to go buy and listen to the next one happy trails to all.

A well written and entertaining harem gamelit

I had a good time listening to this. It's easy to like the main character and each of the girls are different. The setting interesting, basically an alien breeding experiment being performed on humans with leveling. The game system is well balanced and makes sense for the situation.

It did bother me that none of the female characters seemed to know anything about video games or leveling - it just seemed statistically unlikely and made the girls even more helpless. Apart from that, I don't have any complaints.

The quality of the narration was very good. I also like that the female dialogue is read by a female narrator.

This is a series that I'm looking forward to continuing. Highly recommended for readers who enjoy harem gamelit.

Better than I expected

I went into this expecting the usual OP MC with harem which j got however I feel like the characters are not 1 dimensional. the MC makes mistakes and learn from them. he needs to rely on his women to survive. I appreciated that the main women were pulling their own weight by the end of the book.

great narration as usual from this pair.

Very well done.

Many authors have tried to do books like this, however this has been the best executed. I should know. I have over 800 books on audible. Get it. You won't be sorry. Can't wait for book two.

Pretty good book!

I like litrpg when it's mixed with alien technology. The harem aspects had some sex but I have heard more graphic details than what's in this book. I hope they keep it that way. Good story and thats the best part. Should become more exciting in the next book. I hope.

Very Good

An interesting take with interesting characters with a intriguing twist to the plot. I enjoyed the story and the characters and that it is not just a walk in the park. The alternative timeline is interesting and and mystery to what is to come. I’m ready for the next book! The narration was excellent and added to the story!
