great intro

First book of the new "game", and it's a good listen. SoundBooth did a great job, as always, and brought the characters to life. I can't wait for the next entry!

AHHHHHH!

I need so much more of this series, it's so addictive. I have to say that it is the best written and performed series I have ever heard.

Really enjoyable continuation.

Really enjoyed this book. It follows some of the same formula as the previous book, though doesn't focus on the real life side at all, which isn't necessarily bad. Additionally, it focuses far less, if at all, on the adult side of the series. The voice acting / production value was great for how short of a book it was, I really hope they keep it up for the next books.

The main issue I have with the book is that it's very short for how much you're paying. I do feel it would be a lot more fair to price it around the $5 range, or for it to go on a more significant sale before the next book is released. I do however think, despite the length, it's a great self contained story in the universe. That being said, it really should be listed in the same series as the previous book, as you're missing a lot if you read this without reading the previous book, and a new reader might not be as invested, or think to look at the authors previous works.

Nice introduction to a new game!

A very short introduction and transition from one game to another. It was good and the characters were still wonderful, I just wish for more! The Soundbooth crew were excellent as always. I Love their work! Now we just need the next book!

what can I say about this book other then fun.

honestly the book was very enjoyable though of course rather short being book 0 which I see as a sorta novella ish style.
a lot of are favorite characters are back and together still. I really enjoyed the space combat and the story though it can be bit slower and may not be for everyone.
I am very interested in seeing how the first book turns out also I have heard there may be a second gun meister which has me wondering how that will go as well.

So, is this about a game?

Where Gunmeister showed that this was a player in a game Start Nova actually confused me for most of the story. The MC kept implying that they were really in space. I can't even understand how he was even still employed since his life in the real world had no part in the story. That's a problem for me when reality gets left behind in a VR game. The story just turns into a Sci-Fi.
Over all, it's a good start but I hope the MC takes a trip to reality for the sake of continuity.
