The Secret of the Dark Forest Audiobook Streaming Online & Download Free
The Secret of the Dark Forest Audiobook is the 3rd story in a famous VRMMO series of Way of the Shaman audiobooks written by bestseller author – Vasily Mahanenko. There were a few errors in grammar and translation, but nothing that would prevent a listener from enjoying the story.
If you like this genre this audiobook will work for you. If you like science fantasy you will almost certainly enjoy this too, but be advised there are some MMO-style level-up and statistics paragraphs common to the LitRPG genre.
The Virtual World of Barliona is a place of rest and entertainment – but not for everyone. It has become a survival arena for Daniel Mahan after he was sentenced to 8 years in its virtual jail.
Mahan has been through it all: the back-breaking work in the mines, betrayal by other prisoners, and finally, the retrial which has released him into Barliona’s common world. What more could one want? Mahan could have kept a low profile and enjoyed relative freedom while serving the rest of his time.
But being a Shaman, he can’t help himself. Soon he’s a clan leader, taking fifty of the continent’s top players to claim the secrets of the Dark Forest.
About the Author
Vasily Mahanenko is one of the best-known Russian LitRPG fantasy authors, most popular for his Way of the Shaman LitRPG series. In addition, he also wrote the Dark Paladin, Invasion, and the Galactogon series, all within the new LitRPG genre that took not only Russia but the whole world by storm.
Vasily dipped into his college-days insider knowledge as a hardcore gamer in order to create a believable world of the virtual-reality MMO game. His bestselling series combines fiction and video games.
He used his more than ten years of experience as an ERP implementation project manager to approach his writing in a well-organized manner, working to a strict schedule, a set of deadlines, and even a budget.
The Secret of the Dark Forest Audiobook mp3 was a bit too long, with too much inter-guild squabbling and too much talking. There’s a little too much of everything going on in this book. One of the things I love about this series, which this audiobook does best, is allowing the story and people around the main character to seem like individuals. It makes the story really feel like it’s taking place in a game.
The story is satisfying in the motivations of the major backstory characters as well as how it all plays out. This author is excellent at creating moment after moment of sheer delight. Everything you would want to happen in an MMO.
If you have never gotten into MMORPGs, I am not sure that you will like this book, but if you have you will love this.
About the narration, at first, I wasn’t sure about Jonathan Yen’s performance but have now found it works perfectly with Vasily Mahanenko’s writing. He elevates the story and it’s very easy to picture what is going on. He makes his characters come alive and envelops them in emotion. You can get the extra context of tone and such from the voice of the narrator. He has many talents which I have only seen in three narrators so far.
Listening to these back to back is a breeze and a pleasure. Loved this, will definitely listen to all the books related to Way of the Shaman. Can’t wait to start the next book!
