Publisher's Summary

Leveling up would be amazing...

...if it weren't so deadly.

They injected me with a VR chip, a GPS tracker, and my first Seed. They gave me unbelievable powers.

Then, they sent me to fight.

The monsters here are alien and vicious. There is a second moon in the sky. I watched a tree start moving and kill someone. And the other players...?

They're even worse.

I’m alone. I’m weak. And I’m scared. But I will cling to life by the tips of my bloody fingernails.

Who is behind this twisted game? Where are they sending us? Is there anyone I can trust?

If I want to survive, I have to get stronger. But can I do it before the game kills me?

This omnibus contains the first two books in a dark and deliciously violent adventure series that combines science fiction, fantasy, and game elements. You'll love Seeds of Chaos because of the electrifying action, flawed characters, and kick-ass heroine.

Get it now and start the series that will keep you up all night listening.

Amazing!

This story is epic! I loved the characters, the nonstop action, the plot and the entire series thus far. I actually expected this series to suck based on some of the reviews but it was awesome! The story in my options is like a crazy mix of Hunger Games, Divergent and a bit of Star Wars like elements used to create an insane video game. More please!

A good start with an okay finish

If you want a description of the story see below. I like Azalea writing style she keeps things moving at a fast enough past to keep you engaged but slow enough where you can process implications as you go. The way she introduces the game elements flow rather nicely and doesn't feel forced. Some of the reasoning given for the extraordinary abilities definitely needs a suspension of believe but that is normal for this genre. Her character building works well and the interaction between characters holds up at least until the second book. The second book starts to feel forced as if there was a mold Azalea need to fit and she just kept shoving until the story fit in that mold. It was not bad but it was nowhere as good as the first book. Overall I will probably not continue the series but the Omnibus is more than worth a credit.

The book starts off with the abduction of Eve Redding she has now idea what is going on except she should not have stopped to help that poor looking boy on the way to her house. Eve wakes up grimey and sore in the same alley only to find out they, whoever they are has implanted a VR chip and GPS tracker into her neck. Things really start to get weird after these screens pop up in front of her and she starts hearing a voice calling itself "Bunny". From there it get stranger she is now playing a game and cannot tell anyone about it, but unlike other games this one can alter her body and has life and death consequences. She must compete and suffer to earn herself enough seeds, making herself strong enough to get out of the mess she has found herself in.

A loaner at heart Eve decides that needs to change after her first trial and near death experience. She forms a ragtag group of other players with different skills to do well in the trials, and help her plan for a bigger mission outside of the trials as well.

As the title says this is an omnibus of the first two books. If the book left off and the end of the first book I would have given it a higher rating. Onto the second book

**SPOILERS**
After joining up with NIX Eve is still in charge of her crew. While she may appear to be cooperating her main objective has stayed the same to make herself and her team stronger. Eve and her team now with Zed plan on freeing the trapped alien and escaping the clutches of NIX. Afterwards they end up on an alien world, where Eve finds herself battling gods and in the middle of some ancient prophecy.
**SPOILERS**
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

An excellent story, with some caveats...

First off, the quality of the writing, as well as the reading are excellent here. The story is both typical and unique, brought to life by the harsh edge of the circumstances the characters are in, as well as the excellent use of words and the reader's exquisite talent for bringing the passion and edge from the pages to the ears. Where the presentation starts to fray are all the logic holes used to get from point A to B to C. My first and strongest rejection of the story was the initial premise. The use of a stat based interface accomplishes nothing for the story, nor does it really even feel relevant for the intended purpose. All it really does is provide a basic ranking reference for the reader. Why the characters are trapped in what is basically a "death game" is also rather illogical. At the risk of giving a minor spoiler, the mysterious group wants the kids involved to power up, but instead of nurturing growth, they instead just dump the kids into a meat grinder, basically cutting off their nose to spite their face. The end result for me is that the first half of the first book is pure nonsense. After that, however, the real story starts, and that's when I really started to get hooked. After announcing itself as another edgy teens Hunger Games (with more brutality and gore), the story casually leaps to what amounts to an entirely different genre. From contemporary science fantasy (LitRPG flavored) to more of a... pure fantasy with contemporary elements. The story's depth and lore grows and the characters start to feel... more real.

Why four stars? Because the first book is a bit of a muddle, for one. It could have transitioned from point to point more fluidly. Also, while well written, some scenes/scenarios start to drag a bit, as well as the whole story relying on some more Japanese "shounen" elements. In real life, the injuries these kids get would be permanently crippling. Heck, they would be lethal. It's to the point that it feels like the writer is more interested in coming up with ways to mutilate people purely for the sake of grit than for any meaningful contribution to the story. Cut out the gratuitous gore and suddenly the story is much much shorter. Thankfully, just as much attention is given to building a stark yet rich world, so even as I lose interest, I'm still compelled along. I haven't yet decided if I'll get the third book, but I have to admit that I'm intensely curious to see where things go "from here".
