A Jump into the Unknown

Michael Atamanov

We put an end to the war with the Dark Faction, but still humanity’s problems are far from over. More than half of the game’s promised tong of safety has elapsed, and yet humankind is no closer to forming a unified front. We've just begun building one of the twelve planetary shield generators necessary to give Earth complete protection, but we don't have enough construction materials, players or time. Should we ask the parallel magocratic world for help? After all, an invasion from outer space would hurt them just as bad. The mages, though, have plenty of problems of their own.

What options does Gnat even have here? All he can truly count on are his own strength and his personal Relict faction. Should we put all our eggs in one basket and look for help in deep space? Might technology from ancient, long vanished races allow humanity to grow strong enough to turn back the onslaught before it's too late?

Book 6: Aces High is released!


Another amazing book and adventure. I always wonder if the next book is going to be as good as the last one, but they are! Gnat seems to always get into trouble, with each fight he loses something but always ends up a head. I can't wait for the next book!

I started reading this as soon as it came out and couldn't put it down. Team Gnat continues to explore space and get into trouble in the game that bends reality. I impatiently await the next book in the series to see how he gets out of the predicaments he so often finds himself in.


One of the best LITRPG Series period!


There, you stop there?! Can't wait for the next book to come out. Seriously a good and fun series... The man likes his cliffhangers though.

As you can from my rating of book 5 and all the previous novels, I love this series. It's inventive and takes Gnat into some truly sticky situations. The problem I'm seeing is that as Gnat grows in stature and importance, it will be difficult to understand everything that is happening with the faction, his explorations, the H3 faction, and all the other myriad details. The translation is above average. There are a few issues, but they never took me out of the story. The notifications are regular, and while the author has a different take on LitRPG I still think it solidly hits the mark. Highly recommended. 5/5*
