Publisher's Summary

The end of the world is not such a bad thing for Russian weapons engineer Vlad Nardoir.

Really, his world ended six months ago when his wife died, and ever since then, things have been downhill. Soul-crushing medical debt. Favors to the Russian mafia. Now, asteroid. For Vlad, this is life in a nutshell.

But, in a wild twist of fate, he has found a way out. A chance to start fresh in a brand-new ultra-immersive MMORPG called Viridian Gate Online. Making the leap might kill him, but again, death is not such a bad thing for a man with nothing to live for.

Even in the virtual world, however, old grudges burn true, and the past is not as far gone as it seems. He must use his quick wits, rugged persistence, and peculiar set of skills as a weapons engineer to make a place for himself in this new world, or be forcibly dragged back into the very life he fought so hard to escape.

Great Start of Series

A great start to the series. Vlad is such a likeable character I couldn't help become invested in his journey. The world Building in this book is fantastic - I can easily picture the story taking place. I really enjoyed the narration. The distinct character voices & perfect pacing made this a very enjoyable listen. I look forward to more in this series

Sweet!

Because I already read other books in this world I wasn't surprised about some of the tragedy that befell our Russian Hero. I loved that this book gave us a background into this interesting character and I think I will listen to this book again after listening to the OG Viridian Gate book.

VGO’s best story and character that I’ve listened to yet

Vlad is a weapons designer in the real world. Now in VGO he is an alchemic engineer. He was only brought here to design weapons for one side though. He’s had a change of heart though. Now hunted at every turn he must come into his own powers and find allies that will allow him to do what he needs to free himself from his past. Awesome weapons awesome chi crater and a great chapter in the world of VGO. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

good addition

This book was a good addition to the viridian gate online series. interesting to see it from the point of view of Vlad, the narration was okay... I get it he's a russian having a problem with the translator so I kind of got past my annoyance.... after a while it did not detract too badly to the book.... at the end it seems like the author decided to ignore the pain and debuffs dying is supposed to give you an Veridian online, and for a alchemist engineer... there wasn't very much preamble.... he just came in and engineer and then had alchemy bestowed upon him.... still all in all it was a good book

another absolutely amazing book in the series.

All of the VGO books are amazing and this on is no different simply put it's phenomenal. Vlad was always one of my favorite characters in the Core series so this is awesome to read can't wait to read more.

it's a trap but we manage escape...

it's a trap that you can see coming. but the main character manages to always escape. I got bored with it quarter of the way through. Save a credit wait for a sale.

Excellent New VGO adventure

I can't recommend this audio enough as I think Hunter and Paxton have outdone themselves as this is my favourite of the side stories to VGO yet. Vlad was always a great character with his Intelligence, inventiveness , broken English and his newbie status to how online gaming worked.  His life was hard as we knew, but this story opens new levels of hardship and shows us so much more that was hidden from us. I'm sorry almost to say he has replaced Cutter as my 2nd favourite and may even overtake Jack which is kinda worrying me slightly. Without to many spoilers, which I cant do to those yet to discover this story have to say that Vlads narrative rivals Jack's in overmind manuipulation / destiny and he even may have almost as many enemies.  He also has some cool abilities yet to be used, and a great future I'm sure. Which until now has not been fully realised in other stories you may have came across yet. Vikas does an outstanding job doing the Narration for Vlad and others which isn't easy replacing such a character when he is already ensconced in the main series audios. If I could give 6 stars I would but I can only say when is the next audio out and are you finished it yet??
