This is going to be another fantastic series! Next book, please.

Who knew reading about playing a video game would be so fun? The possibilities are endless! The story is smooth and transitions nicely. It could have been confusing, but Bible explained things perfectly, without boring us or leaving us scratching our heads. The characters are distinct and easy to relate with. More please!

My original EverRealm audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

This was a tough book to review as I have liked the previous works produced by Jake Bible.  As one of the main characters says early on in the book, “It’s complicated…”  Mr. Bible’s writing style is often unique and each of his stories brings action, adventure, and excitement.  However, that was not the case with his recent releases into the Literary Role Playing Game (LitRPG) genre with “EverRealm”.  Even

"It’s funny how life’s little coincidences get warped and messed up into a hellish nightmare that makes you want to piss your breeches as you run blindly through an unfamiliar forest while trying to escape an undead river troll hell bent on killing and eating you."
At the end of the world a good way of escaping might be to load your consciousness into a game world, if only the outside world would stay there.
The parameters of the game have been changed by the admin which certainly explains a lot

Very soft litrpg

Only found a couple of mistakes, so this was very well written. No loot is gathered from defeated enemies and the only stats shown are the mc's. I have to call this the softest litrpg I've run into.
I can still recommend it as a fun read though.

This is the first LitRPG offering I have experienced. I like the genre and the idea of combining that with urban fantasy, post apocalypse, zombies. I like the different worlds and sequels that were set up by this first book and I like that each of them presents new challenges and landscapes.

The story fell apart in two areas for me. It is an ensemble book and in that type of book I have to care about the cast. I never grew to care about this team. Whether they won or lost didn't really matter. I

This is where I wish there were half ratings... This was probably actually a 3.5 star book for me, but I rounded up because it was enjoyable. I will also preface my review by saying that I have never read anything in the LitRPG category, so I did not know what to expect. Someone who is familiar with this type of book or role playing games would probably like this even more than I did. What I do know is the zombie genre, and this gave a very new twist to that. I find it pretty rare to stumble upo ...more

In the near future the world is in deep trouble. The undead infest the planet and nowhere is safe anymore. A group of gaming and programming friends find a way programmatically to immerse themselves in the gaming domains. They must forego their human bodies and will reappear in the game to live out their lives as characters within the game. They decide that the possibility of death must be an option to keep things real, so if they die in the game…that’s game over. They thought they would avoid t ...more

This is a Zombie Novel inside a LitRPG inside a Zombie Novel... and it kind of works. A group of young adults attempt to escape the zombie Apocalypse by fleeing into a Virtual Quantum world, only to mess up and bring zombies along. It's pretty good, though the LitRPG aspect of it is by far the weakest.

Over all I give the story about a 3.5/5, rounded up because of the hints that maybe the virtual world isn't so virtual. I'm not sure if future books will end up covering that the zombie apocalypse

*This book was given to me by the author at my request, and I provided this voluntary, unbiased review.*


Yet another unique style of story in the LitRPG genre. Just a tad different in that it's not stat based, but still falls well within the LitRPG stylings. I fully enjoyed the ride of this story, and I was rooting for them the whole time - especially the quirky MC. The stakes are more real in this adventure than in some of the other LitRPG stories i've read, so I think that is what sets thi

Meh. Was ok. Probably should rate a 2, but feeling generous. Story was ok, just couldn't get into the characters at all. Wasn't awful, just wasn't great. Probably won't read more. ...more

Another cool creation for the LitRPG world in books. I really like that they are leaving the "real" world behind for virtual ones, and the reason behind it all. This gives the reason behind coming to the gaming worlds solidity in my mind. We get the explanations of how it's done, but it's not over science-y to lose us. It's just what it is.

I'm really enjoying the LitRPG books I've been getting lately. Jeff's voice acting is fun and fits the worlds and characters so well. And the stories are aliv

You, the author, are telling us, the audience, that when people create a virtual domain with the ability to alter the domain to however they like, they cannot pull out omnipotent fail safe abilities. Please keep in mind that this domain will be their second life forever. Their escape from a post apocalyptic world. Yeah, create a world with no backup.

You are also telling us that "dying" in such a virtual world is "bad" because of what?!

You are also also telling us that MC needs to be fully soak
