This book is very well written and very interesting. The plot moves along at a great pace so you are never bored. While I have read several fantasy books before, I am not a gamer but reading a book that reads like a game is interesting. I wasn't sure I would like it but it is great. Looking forward to the next one.

Great storyline. The character development and backstories along with the natural progression was very well done. *Partial spoiler ahead* however there is a slightly inappropriate bit near the end of the book. No explicit content tho.

I found the land on audible not knowing what it was. I have played plenty of rpg and mmorpgs. So I gave it a shot. I couldn't stop I listened to all 6 of them so far. I was so enthralled by the story and everything that it had to tell. It was amazing. I would love to play a game very similar to it. I just wish there was one. If anyone knows please tell me thanks.

This is by far, the best written LITRPG series out there. I can't wait for the next installment. Unfortunately, the author may be a victim of his own success in a way. The first book was so good, that this one did seem diminished by comparison. My biggest issue was that so much happened in book one, and I didn't really feel enough progress was made after book two. Instead of the game world expanding, it contracted into pretty much just a village and a dungeon. While still entertaining, it felt a little bit like filler.

Best LitRPG I have ever read not only have the action and fantasy that I enjoy but also lure you into the main character perspective in a way that sometimes I found myself raging and the betrayal that he comes to face and laughing loudly at the humor of the the book really amazing and expecting book 8 with unbearable desire keep up the good work

The adventure continues for Richter and his growing list of comrades. As a longtime fan of RPGs, I find myself absolutely enthralled by this series. I am reading through this series at nearly one book per day.

I really liked this story, probably more than the first one. It's main character Richter is easy to like and isn't a super hero type character. Even though he is magical and has amazing luck, he's still in the realm of reality, as far as a person could be like him. The messes he gets himself into and the things he finds are cool and fun to explore with him. Looking forward to the next book.

This series is a ton of fun. I like the authors style, I like the story, and I'm loving the world building. There is something satisfying about the world building, maybe it's just a genre I've wanted for a while. Give this series a go, it's a lot of fun, and a fairly quick,read.

I finished book six and decided to review all of them at once, it is a pleasure to read a litrpg the doesn't devolve into a rant after 3-4 books! This series is well written with solid character development and enough humor and insight to avoid the pitfalls found in many of the other LITRPG series. I recommend this series wholehearted as a fun adventure and well worth the time and money to read.

i have dabbled in LitRPG on and off, ust wanted to say that your book series is the first one that actually felt like a story i bought and read all 5 within 2 days and the only annoying thing is that now i need to know more. I have reall enjoyed the pace you have set,the world you created, your knowlege of MMO's and more then anyhting the simple fact that your characters, although get lucky also face very real trials and dont / havent become this all powerful being within moments of arriving in their new world. Im realy looking forward to the next installments

I love this book. I'm new to the LitRPG genre, and I was immediately hooked. I had to buy the whole series and read it in a week! Only down side is each book is a little bit short, about 250 pages. But, I really love the story/characters, and its nice to read the books on my lunch break!

This book was an absolute pleasure.

Is it nerdy? Does it list out the stats of the weapons he picks up? Do you read as he actually levels up stats?

Yes and it's so much more fun than I had imagined.

If you have any desire to read LitRPG give this a go!

I picked this up on a recommendation and ended up really enjoying the series. Well written, especially detailed, and thoroughly entertaining! A must read for anyone who grew up playing D&D or any dungeon crawler type video games.

This series has become one of my favorites. I definitely think it helps if you're a gamer, but it certainly isn't a prerequisite to enjoy these books. That said, this is a really cool approach and a very well thought out story. I love how the characters and the world around them are progressing. I can't wait for more of this story, keep them coming, please!

An awesome series. This series of books is a 100% definite read for RPG players and MMO players alike. Help support the author and treat yourself to a world that will suck you in and leave you wanting more.

I went into this book right after the first and loved it so much that I did not stop to eat or leave the house until I finished it. Kept true to the struggles of the first book while also giving a sense of increased progress. The character development of several others in the story is truly fantastic, and I love the comedic banter

Love this series! It's apparent why he's the father of Lit RPG. Great author, with an awesome story to tell once you pass the douche bag, frat boy comments which make you roll your eyes and sigh in disgust. Thankfully those parts only take up small portion of the book. After that it's wonderfully written adventures and battles!

Aleron Kong does it again! First off if you haven't read the first book, stop reading this review and go pick it up. Once you've finished it, you won't even take the time to read this review before picking up book 2.

If that's not enough to convince you let me say that this story so far is a masterpiece. It has drawn me in completely and leaves me craving more. Kong does so much more than tell a story. He truly builds a world with dynamic characters, wondrous magic, surprising plot twists and enough easter eggs to leave any gamer chuckling.

It is really starting to heat up. The main character in rise to the top has made a terrible mistake and now he has to live with the consequences. He sets out with his friends to get stronger so that will not happen again. After finally awaken another part of his power another danger crops up. I cannot wait to start the next book.

I just want to go on record as coming to this series very late. Therefore, if you are reading this and haven't read this book yet I envy you soooo much. At the time I'm writing this there are 6 books in the series. That means you have days and days of top notch entertainment! What are you waiting for?

I'm just getting into the LitRPG genre and the Chaos Seeds books are a very fun and enjoyable starting point for it. The second book in the series is just as good as the first and I'm going to keep buying them as I go. The book is fairly fast paced and continues Richters adventures with some unforeseen situations popping up. I definitely recommend it.

I'm normally a stronger fan of Sci-fi then fantasy but this series is topping my must read more list. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy and remember as Aleron says, peace, love and a perfect margarita!

Chaos Seeds is becoming my favorite series to date the Forging is a great is a book that is full of adventure but still you get the feeling that the character is developing and not just going trough the motions of a game.
To any one interested in buying the books please do and i hope you will enjoy them just as much as i do.

It's the second author i try in this genre and i liked his books so far with 2 minor details. Grammatical errors and at one point there's an oversight of the author where Richter dings twice lvl 18
(SPOILER)
first time he lvls 18 while Sion is on his personal quest where he relives his worst moment in live and eventually solves the secret quest.
and the second time he lvls to 18 after Richter finishes his quest to unlock your power 2......
Nowadays i like my books a bit....grittier, but i appreciate the authors sense of humor ;).

The world that the author has created appears massive and alive. I've already read the current series (1-5) several times and I can't wait for the next entry to the series.

The characters are entertaining with their own motivations. I absolutely recommend this series to anyone looking for a change up to standard fantasy.

Avid gamer and RPGer for many many years. There were some things I loved about this book, and others not so much.
Loved: All the nods and winks to RPG gaming. Discovering items, leveling, quest progression....all of it was awesome as our protagonist discovers them for the first time. Also really enjoy the consistency this system drives in the story. I hate books in which powers and skills are so poorly defined that the protagonist goes from OP to noob just to progress the story line.
Disliked: Half way through the book, the novelty of the leveling process became tedious. I do not need to know point by point where and why our hero chooses to place his attribute points every time he dings. The book felt very short to me. After looking at the actual page count, I realize it was because too many pages were dedicated to mechanics and not enough to story progression. Finally the book felt a little juvenile to me. I believe Richter was in his early 20's, but in my mind he was 12. No offense to 12 year olds, but the humor, and characters felt very shallow and 1 dimensional.
Applause to the author for this novel approach. I hope it grows into a great story and not a narration of character leveling.

Just finished book 6, you are an amazing author and I cannot wait for more. I read every book so far back to back. The idea of a book like log horizon, SAO, or is it wrong to try and pick up girls in a dungeon was interesting to me so I tried it and couldn't put it down. Loved it. As I said I cannot wait for more.

Constant action, detail, and a Yoshi that I hate just as much as the dino.

Pros.
Detail. The whole point to litrpg books is enjoying the character leveling up. Gaining skills and abilities. We get to enjoy that without it being overwhelming.
Advancing story. We left off the first book with the start of the village. Now we get to see it slowly coming together.
As a nerd, dungeon crawls in gaming is a requirement.

Cons
Yoshi is a dick.
Yoshi is a really, really, really big dick.

I'm not a big D&D fan but I find I'm really getting pulled into this series. The adventures are fun and creative. The characters are slowly getting fleshed out. The only negative is that SO many pages are devoted to repetitive scores and levels. I'm leaving now to buy the next in the series!

I'm retroactively writing these reviews because this series is awesome!!! Day 3 and half way through book 5!!! My wife is annoyed at me for reading so much these last few days...(it's worth it :-) ) Read this series!!!!

I read the first one and now a week later I'm all the way through the fifth one and can't wait for the sixth one to come out. It makes you feel like you're inside of a game living it with all the grit of real life. He balances the character on the edge of a moral cliff where he is trying to be good but may slip and do evil in the name of good. It keeps you on the edge wondering if he'll slip or stay strong and keep walking along that edge.

As the heading suggest I found this book to be just as enjoyable as the last. I'll continue the series for I am now fully invested in seeing the outcome of Richter's journey. If you're into litrpg don't pass up on this one (its obvious but do start at book 1) it's a gem forsure.

Excellent book in the LitRPG genre. The MC is entertaining and well developed. I especially like how the focus is on village building, helping those in need and personal development rather than conquering everything around. Love the whole series!

The writing was a bit off to me in a way I'm not too sure how to describe, as I don't review things often. Areas and interactions lacked detail, and once Sion became a Companion, he was often pushed to the sideline of an encounter and simply existed. As a companion in a real game like Skyrim, it'd make sense, but even though this is a book about a game, it's still a book, and it didn't translate very well. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am diving right into the sequel!

This is definitely one of the better LitRPG books that are available (and in my opinion many of them are good RPG worlds with middling stories). It has a mix of world building and adventure / action that help to tell a story rather than simply say "This is my game world, see how OP I am."

The story is divided into 2 parts and each felt like a separate story (each part is ~50% of the overall book length). First we have Richter dealing with the development of the Mist Village and the second was a dungeon crawl. Since the first half of the story dealt with Richter trying to improve his village I expected the dungeon crawl to be rather short so we could get back to the village and its improvements once he claimed the dungeon's goodies. That didn't happen, so when I finished the story felt incomplete.

A LitRPG is all about adventure and the dungeon crawl was definitely an adventure, but when compared to book 1 it didn't advance as much in terms of plot. Those wanting to see how the Mist Village turns out and impacts the world around it may want to wait for book 3 and then read it together with book 2. Otherwise this book will seem to be 50% filler.

Really solid follow up! Pace and action were totally believable - although I haven't read much else in this genre. I like that these books because it feels sort of like following a real person work through challenges than a character.

It just keeps getting deeper. Good writer in this area. Hard to put the story down. Makes me wish to be there, but realistic enough that at the same time I don't want to be (at least during the fighting haha)

I have been reading SCIFI for over 50 years and am retired now on only Social Security income. finally find a series i will like and i cant afford the rest of the series because of the price. i joined kindle unlimited because i read over 20 books a month. i know the reasoning for offering 1st book free but i wish i could afford to read rest of series. just seems to me that $5.99 is alittle high for an Ebook.

Two books in two days. I could not put it down. Some editing issues and the fight is a little off. Seems like the main character is watching everyone fight and not doing anything or slow to react. Not a writer myself but I am a professional reader. Strong 4 and a half.

Book two was great continuation of the series I love how the main character is not perfect makes mistakes and gets in lasting trouble for it, unlike many similar stories where the characters are gods in human skin. Great story worth reading

This new genre, litrpg, is amazing. I work all week and have three small children, so I don't have the time to game like I used to. This is the next best thing. The characters are awesome and the world itself is full of adventure. Thank you!

An excellent book, which portrays the growth of the Mist Village into a force to be reckoned with. The decisions by the characters are logical and actions have reactions that make sense and flow with the story. Kong has done a great job with these books.

Now I see why Aleron Kong is being called the father of American LitRPG, the world is detailed, and the characters were thoughtfully formed.
This is my second foray into the LitRPG genre and I am happily surprised.

If you liked the first book then you are going to continue to like this one. The mc starts the process of building village. This means that a lot of the quest and things that were opened up in the first book are put on hold. However, it is still a fast paced and fun read

So I'm going to put this out there, you reading this review. You're probably thinking that if you haven't read the series, that you want an in. A new genre is like a new car. Crack this book and listen to these pages pure baby.

Honestly I expected nothing from this series when I picked it up, but I was curious as a fan of .hack, SAO, and other such anime. The second book coninues to impress, well written, fast paced with humor and action mingled.

An truly excellent story and second book in a excellent series. I highly recommend buying and reading this and the rest of the series. Full of humour, action, superb world building and imaginative story lines.

This was truly an e entertaining ride I'm glad I was able to read it free on kindle unlimited also I'm buying both books for keeping. Yes both are that good thAt I need to own them and read them during wait. Also for a new author the work is great with a nice place and clever leveling scheme. My only gripe is the book ended too soon

I liked this book, but I have to say it wasn't as good as the first one. It would have benefited from a bit more editing to catch the grammatical and logic errors and fix some of the punctuation. Small things like that take a small bit away from the story by providing distractions. Would also have liked the story to proceed a bit faster in some areas where it seemed to drag. Overall book was good

When i saw this book had been released i devoured it in a day and was happy to see that the second book is every bit as good as the first. The world was widened and the MC got a bit stronger and had some good dungeon crawls. The only downside I found was the multiple instances of words being misspelled or not correct which a good edit will clean up. That was the only reason i didn't give it 5 stars.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
emmett racecar
Excellent continuation of Richter's saga. I look forward to more adventures from The Land in the future! (A little sloppy with some of the editing, some simple misspelling, but doesn't detract from the epic adventure!)

immersive, with interesting and funny characters. I enjoy the building and growth themes, as well as the sense of discovery and adventure. and the light tone. doesn't take itself too seriously, but never goes overboard and know when to be serious. some of those lines are atrociously funny. I wouldn't know how to insert a Drake's quote in a litrpg lol good read.

jonathan kart
I can honestly say that I love this book just as much as the first, there isn’t any aspect of the book from the writing style to characters and setting to the plot itself and anything in between – that didn’t blow my mind. If you want a very high quality, worthwhile read!

Not too sure about this type of story.. I am not a player of RPG so the character stats are a little disconcerting, but the characters are interesting and the action is compelling....the jury’s still out but I am going to check out the next book.

A LitRPG book that is true to the style and has the very fun elements of watching characters grow in the LitRPG sense. As the plot thickens and characters continue growing, he does not deviate from that base, which is great.

So I have been on a bit of a LitRPG binge lately. I've spent my time as a gamer and when I discovered (like Columbus discovered America) the genre I was hooked. The downside has been the sheer lack of offerings to satisfy the growing demand. Authors have been publishing rushed translations, unedited indie offerings, and all-in-all bad literature. The search has been an adventure in and of itself however, and books like this are what draw me in with bated breath impatiently awaiting the next in the series.

Many who may be interest in the genre or may have been turned off to it by sub-par selections would do well to read this book. Simply put, I would gladly throw money at this guy to get the books written faster; just saying.

A what does the fox say reference. A completely schizophrenic tone, going from serious, to goofy, to obnoxious, back to serious in 2 paragraphs. I finished the book because I was hoping it got better. It didn't. Not my cup of Tea.

katel70
The story line is very good. However, I gave the book one star as the author decided to make books one and two available on Kindle Unlimited - but not the remaining books.

I NEVER would have read the first two books if the entire series was not available on Kindle Unlimited. I feel that it is very disingenuous to begin a series in on3 venue and not finish it in the same venue.
