LitRPG bere literární svět útokem. Stačí se podívat třeba na nabídku Amazonu. Je více než potěšitelné, že špičkoví autoři patří právě do naší „stáje“. Vasilij Mahanenko (série Cesta šamana) byl první, kterého jsme v žánru LitRPG u nás vydali. Nyní se velmi hlasitě hlásí o slovo Michael Atamanov se svou tetralogií Obránce perimetru.

I'd give this a 6 if I could because once I started I could not put it down, and even after I finished it in the early AM, I had trouble getting to sleep because I couldn't stop thinking about the story and where it was going to go!

Ahh, where to begin? a Top rank Sci fi space opera litrpg.

For an idea of what you have in the hands this could be a mix of Spineward Sector series with resemblance in jump mechanics, EVE Online for the various spacial strategies, Destiny Online of royalroadl for various interaction with realworld, Legend of the Galactic Heroes the magistral anime/manga THE reference in political space opera and all with the spice of the author, that have build that perfect chemistry for the space ope

Hello fellow capsulears. If you know what that means you will probably enjoy this book. Since it was written by a Russian you can probably guess who this writer flew with.

Mant good ideas but....

STOP: the MP is a complete moron and the author fails to create the world.

1/ There is not a single relevant infodump! We do NOT know how the ships work. What's their relative power, how we can use tactics, what's allowed or not. Basically the author assumes that you played Eve Online and that's it. Without some high level knowledge of how games like this one work, you'll never catch what's happening.
2/ Units are definitively ridiculous
3/ The MP is

Fantastic book

Wow what a great combination combining a space series with role playing games, add to that a really good storyline that hook you right away and you have a great series.

great story, love how the mc himself doesnt know if he is in a game or another world/dimesnsion whatsoever, and the reader too wonders.

The MC is loyal a great tactician and a capable leader. He holds strong in his convictions and worked hard to lose weight, get healthy and get clean from his drug addiction. He loves his 'daughter' and it's cute how he spoils her throughout the book. The way he gains the trust of his personal bodyguard is believable and their friendship is a strong point of the book. The politics and world building are interesting. The problem. The Women.

Atamanov Can create such interesting worlds but every boo

The story goes that the rich and powerful are all a bunch of roleplayers who got pissed of the plebs weren't taking games seriously so they came together to make a secret game for hardcore roleplayers. That's where our protagonist comes in, one of the rich wants someone to play on his account because he's embarrassingly bad at the game. From there on out it's no longer a litrpg, it's just a shitty scifi novel! The main character is ingame 24/7, everyone takes the roleplaying really really seriou ...more

Hey look - an actual scifi litrpg!

We'll okay, I'm sure someone will correct me and say it's gamelit, but my shelf says litrpg, so that's what I'm sticking with....

Ruslan is a strategist for something that sounds an awful lot like EVE Online when he's hired to come fill in on a special game, made for the incredibly wealthy. He'll be paid several times his annual salary in exchange for 6 months of work, making some rich dude look good. And, that's the last of the story on E

While the small amount of gaming elements in this series makes it hard to compare to other Lit RPG books, this does not in any way make the story any less interesting. The series may not be the best for someone who prefers action-packed novels with near-constant combat. I personally really enjoyed the heavy political action going on for most of the story, made all the more interesting by the fact that there are other races involved with mentalities that are completely different from mankind's.

This feels like the first real space 4x GameLit book that I've personally read. I enjoyed the complexity of the characters. Having read all the way through A Game with No Rules, I kind of wish that we could get some additional installments.

Recommended for space fans who are ok with moral complexity.

I like it a lot. So many characters, tho. And why do they always call each other by their full names? Just curious, is it a culture thing?

Overall, it is much better than I thought it would be when I started. Maybe, my standard is low cos I don't read too much space opera, but I do feel that the space fights are really exciting.

Damn the cliffhangers ending tho. Oh well, on to the next book.

Brilliant

More of a military sci fi story than a gamelit novel, perimeter defense is an excellent story. Atamanov is great writer, and all of his series have excellent characters, pace, and storylines. If you want a good light science sci fi fleet story, you can’t go wrong with the perimeter defense series.
Matt Morgan
I couldn't tell you why I didn't read any further than this first book, but it did stop with the first book. I know that is extremely helpful in a review, but there it is. It may be that something was literally lost in translation or maybe its just missing that little bit 'more' that turns an OK book into a good book.

Well I never expect much from LitRPG in literary sense except guilty entertainment, but this is setting the bar too low.

too many plot holes, the guy is 30 mins in the game and he know which ships were destroyed in what star system but had no freakin clue that he had a daughter!!!!!!!!!!
the plot holes are numerous

I finished the book but will not pursue the series.

Interesting fleet combat tale, crossed with litrpg. Odd, but entertaining story. Kinda like Dune, only with fleet combat.

My only problem is with how trusting the MC is with his body! that's gonna come back to kick him in the ass soooo very hard!

Not a bad opening to a series. It took too long for me to buy into the setup though.

I am giving this book three and one half stars. The book was an interesting enough book about a guy who ends up taking over the role of another person in what he believes to be a very realistic and immersive video game that seems like reality. It is not clear whether he is really in a video game or reality, and although that might seem interesting at first, it really didn't seem to matter much at all and was kind of a pointless story detail that took up space and kind of was confusing. None of t ...more

Recommends it for: nobody
This was awful. There were alot of good ideas and I went in pretty excited because of it's rating and description. The warning signs started early with a bit of an unbelivable premise, but I ignored it going okay fine whatever it's just for the setup. Then there was all the clunky dialog, well I read tons of terrible webfiction so I got a high tolerance for that. Then there was the nonsensical plot and characters. I don't get anyone...nobody is relatable, nobodies actions make any sense I just c ...more

While this is a very fun Sci-Fi and overall a great story, I would not call it a LitRPG. It's very lightly seasoned with those elements. Yes, throughout the book his "standing" is constantly changing but it doesn't contribute to the story. Take out the standing and take out the fact that Mia is in the real world and instead place her on a remote planet and you have exactly the same story. So while yes, I very much enjoyed the book I would just say it's an awesome space Sci-Fi.

This is a fairly good litrpg novel with only a few translation issues from the original Russian. I rather liked the social interactions, though the book skims a little too much on the space battle side of things.

Was a fantastic book, a bit slow on the draw but when the action started It picked up so fast. Just a great book overall.
