Pirate and LitRPG - Great MixReview by: Morgan Hobbes
Limitless Seas, by Dean Henegar, is book 1 in the new Limitless Lands series. I admit I haven't read any of the Limitless Lands series, but that didn't really hamper my understanding of what was going on. It's easy enough to pick up and get right into. Short world-setting at the beginning is enough to get the gist.
This book was a lot of fun to listen to. After the first few minutes, and once we're past the character build, we're dropped right into the middle of a pirate adventure. Larson wakes to find himself shackled to an oar in a pirate ship. His captors are none-to-friendly, nor is his fellow rower.
With no real memories of his past life to guide him, Larson sticks to his principles, and the plot quickly unfolds from there. Plenty of action, close hand-to-hand combat and ranged weapons and magic.
The main character not being your typical fantasy race was a nice change of pace. Larson is a half-man, half-serpent creature called a naga. He quickly finds his... I want to say sea legs, but the bottom half is a snake... and inspires courage and loyalty among his fellow prisoners.
Fortunately, the "real world" story doesn't intrude too much. It was easy to get swept up in the action that you forget where he really is. I'd probably enjoy this book even more if it wasn't for those part. That's not to say I hated it, not at all... but coming from a place of no background of the Limitless Lands books, I could have easily done without them.
Jack Voraces delivers a great performance, voicing many different races well. No nitpicks to mention, just very enjoyable to listen to.
I look forward to the next book in the series. I can't wait to see what else the future holds for this pirate adventure.
