Edge of Reality

Andrei Livadny

He is a cyber dweller. A gamer who's grown up in the web of virtual illusion woven from hundreds of phantom worlds. His biggest dream is to dump the real world for good.

His desperate hunger of new experiences forces him to take a risk and become one of the first proud owners of a neuronet implant. The new gadget becomes part of him - but soon it's not enough. If only he could finally burn all his bridges and make a step beyond the real world!

He soon gets this opportunity. A new universe, overflowing with mystery and unimaginable, mind-blowing authenticity, opens up before him.

This is Phantom Server. The game of the future where your pursuit of an adrenaline rush soon turns into a battle for survival. But the most terrifying mystery lies ahead when you gradually start to realize: this is a road of no return. Your every decision may become your last. Your every step leads you further along the abyss between life and death.


This author exceeds all expectations. Most of the books in this RPG genre are fairly simplistic. Not this one.


It was such a good complex read compared to most of the litrpg books. I know the Asian markets started this market, but the Russians are perfecting it.

Most LitRPGs lack a sense of urgency to a character's actions-- often, mystery is the driving force. In this book, on the other hand, a sense of fear and doubt about the nature of reality drive the narrative-- it's pretty intense.

This was a very surprising read as Sci-Fi is generally much harder to write successfully it either gets too technical or almost becomes fantasy in the unbelievable situations. this walked a very fine line between but pulled it off.
