Comments Desperate Times

  • Dionis

    Really enjoyed it. Enjoyed this book a lot. This was my first LitRPG book and I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun I had reading it. I tend to read myself to sleep at night. Definitely not falling asleep with this read! Can't wait for the next one!

  • Grant Merrifield

Another thing I [...]


  • Rodger Nelson

    Decent for what it is. Although not really a fan of the premise of the book.


  • Brad T.

    Quick read. Fun.


  • Phil

    Exciting and Innovative! I enjoyed this this book immensely and look forward to the next. The action is fast paced, descriptive and keeps you hooked all the way through. Some great ideas with lots of potential, I can't wait to see what happens next.
