  3. Eden's Gate: The Sparrow - Edward Brody - 5/5
  4. Eden's Gate: The Sands - Edward Brody - 5/5 NOTE: These last two books made me realize I wasn't enjoying The Land series as it's quite poorly written in comparison. Aleron Kong is just not a good writer IMO.

  9. Eden's Gate: The Sparrow: A LitRPG Adventure, Book 2 - Edward Brody
  10. Viridian Gate Online: Cataclysm: The Viridian Gate Archives, Book 1 - J.A. Hunter - 5/5 - This is one of the better written LitRPG books I've read. I really enjoyed it, even though these LitRPG books are are so similar and kind of morphing together in my head.
  11. Streams of Silver: Legend of Drizzt: Icewind Dale Trilogy, Book 2 - R.A. Salvatore - 5/5 - I'd describe this series as easy reading fantasy books. Great writing. Fun battles. Powerful character building.
  12. Recursion - Blake Crouch - 5/5 - I love his science-focused time travel, multi-dimension, books. This one had me hooked just like his book Dark Matter which I read a few years back. I'm pretty much "Subscribed" to whatever Blake puts out at this point as I'm never disappointed.
