Andrea Parsneau's narration captures NPC Maddie's character perfectly...
Maddie hates the label NPC, but what can a girl do? It's what gamers call her, and she constantly struggles against that label, and against her programming... There are times when all she can do is accept a dangerous quest (against her better judgement of course) because she really needs the money for her day-to-day expenditures as well as the potions that keep her chronic pain at bay... The quests/jobs are normally simple package deliveries, but it's summer time, which happens to be the breeding season of the Very Monstrous, Very Hungry, and VERY Dangerous Tromal!
To further complicate matters, this time the package is a Gamer...
You'll definitely want to get the boxed set because, A) it's gonna save you some dough and, B) you're going to want to read straight through without interruption! As we learn that Maddie is so much more than her programming, we also find out that other NPC's aren't what they seem... So you'll definitely want to start beta testing Puatera Online yourself to find out how it all plays out! ...
Oh and if you're like me and can't wait for the next audible release, books 4 and 5 are both available as ebooks on Amazon...
I thought this was a pretty interesting take on this genre. I feel like the first 2/3 fit together pretty well but part 3 felt really different. This is where it started getting into some really interesting aspects of the world.. but then it was over. I understand why this was the case as our knowledge of the world grows with Maddie's but it felt quite jarring to me.
Personally, I think I would have enjoyed the story more if the first 2/3 was condensed and the last part was expanded on. I thought that Maddie's character building was important but things she learns towards the end of part 2 / start of part 3 and things that happen in part 3 were much more interesting and I wanted to know more! Unfortunately how things end (though they do tie up many loose ends) leaves you hanging. I wouldn't say it leaves as a cliffhanger but there is definitely unresolved story. Hopefully there will be a continuation of this series. If so, I will definitely check it out.
Excellent narration by Andrea Parsneau! I have no complaints here. I would not have a problem listening to more works narrated by Andrea.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
