Andrei Livadny is a popular Russian science fiction author Born on May 27 1969 in the city of Pskov, he was an avid reader from an early age But it was the Russian translation of Robert A Heinlein s The Orphans of the Sky that decided his choice of future occupation The story has become a pivotal moment in the boy s life, leaving a lasting impression on him.Andrei wrote his first book at the age of eight Since then, he s never stopped working on new books His passion for science fiction has gradually become his career.In 1998, Andrei debuted in Russia s leading publishing house EKSMO with his novella The Island of Hope Since then, he has penned over 90 books that have enjoyed a total of 153 editions.Andrei has created several unique worlds, each unlike the previous He wrote A History of Our Galaxy with humanity itself as a protagonist This sixty book series creates a history of our future civilization and its contacts with alien races, forming a convincing and logical picture of humanity s development for two millennia from now.Andrei s recent involvement with the bestselling genre of LitRPG books set in online roleplaying games inspired him to create his most intriguing series to date, Phantom Server Merging virtual reality with hard science fiction and space exploration, the two first books of the series, Edge of Reality Phantom Server Book 1 and The Outlaw Phantom Server Book 2 are now available on , prompting a reviewer to call Andrei one of the best new authors in American Sci Fi translated from Russian.Besides hard science fiction, Andrei Livadny also works in cyberpunk genres which allow him to focus on human relationships and raise questions about artificial intelligence and identity uploading, describing cyberspace as humanity s future environment.The English translation of A History of Our Galaxy will be available shortly Check the author s Russian language site for updates.

    2. Okay first off (as they say) this is a good read. I only went 3 stars as I think I'm getting a bit jaded about the LitRPG books. Then I went back and upgraded it to 4 as a 3 might be misleading We have the now familiar scenario here of moving from the "real" world to an "RPG" world. There is a bit of a twist in both the plot and the character formation. I find the story absorbing and I enjoyed the book. However I found it didn't stick with me. When I sat down here to add it to my "reviewed" book [...]

    3. Oh Brave New World with such loot in it!*minor spoilers ahead*Our protagonist, Alex, is a less than wealthy gamer is suffering quite the series of losses. Poor communication resulted in his favorite female party member essentially dumping him, the game they played together in is getting ready to close the curtain, and his vehicle nearly ended up as his coffin. With his physical self a wreck, a businessman from a gaming powerhouse approaches him with an enticing offer, freedom from the foibles of [...]

    4. I can't say if it was fully this books fault and it was more than just a little boring or if daylight savings time bitch smacked me harder than prior years. I found myself drifting off, reading the same sentences again and again, reading samples of other books, until I realized I was at like 90% and probably should just bite the bullet and get it done.Now that I am finished I know that I will probably check out book two, the base plot line was kind of interesting, and I am slightly curious on wh [...]

    5. I got this book as an advance review copy. The concept is a bit cliche in litrpg novels. The protagonist is forced to live in a new virtual reality game. Most of us don't mind the concept if it is entertaining. And it is, the book brings the good characteristics of an MMORPG into play. If you can get over the initial dryness, you are in for a ride.

    6. Not bad.Another good story by this author.Not really any errors, but there were a few spots I would have worded a little differently just to make the flow of the story a little smoother.I do hate cliffhanger endings though.If anything happens to the author, (let's hope not!) then we don't get a resolution. Terrible place to stop the story.Other than that I would recommend this book for a day of reading and relaxation.

    7. Awesome As usual, Mr Livadny has delivered a great read, devoured in a day, leaving me hungering for more. Well done sir, and kudos to the translator for a job extremely well done.

    8. Good storyGood story with a good translation. Magic Dome does it again with another great selection for us! Can't wait for the next one!

    9. This is a slightly tough review because I would originally lean more toward a 3 star based on how describes the rankings, but since 3 stars is considered by most to actually be a negative review I bumped it up to 4. I wouldn't say there is anything overtly wrong with this story. It hits all of the notes that one would expect of a Litrpg. There are a lot of standard tropes here which may chafe on a person looking for something refreshing and new, but may comfort those wanting something they know [...]

    10. Clicking on Andrei Livadny's profile shows he's Russian, but this is probably the least obvious translation I've read yet. Not just because the translation is excellent (which it is), but it's written in a way that doesn't really imply a location it's taking place in other than the future. It's also has a more upbeat feel than other Russian translated books.The setup for the story is rather interesting. It's got the 'testing new tech' trope, but it's done in conjunction with intensive medical pr [...]

    11. i would give this book 3.5 stars.This was not a bad book, but it had some weaknesses. My biggest complaint is how OP the main character becomes so quickly. So much of the appeal of Lit RPG comes from the struggle of level progression and overcoming obstacles The main character just does not really have much struggle to overcome so it lessened the tension for me. The few struggles that held me in suspense were solved through deus ex machina.I am still curious to see how this series develops. The [...]

    12. Readers log:I have finished this book sometime ago today, and I'm really not sure what to think. I liked how in the beginning the main character guy was helped out as a beginner by the two dwarves. It made me think of how MMOs could be fun while people were working together like that. The women in the book could have been more complicated and realistic, though I don't understand the demon woman's feelings really.

    13. Good stuff, a bit dry at first but gets better and better the more you get into it.Story reminds me so much of The way of the shaman, but thats just LitRPG for ya i guess.Great read and on to the second one!

    14. This is poised to be the second best LitRPG series I've read so now I have two series to wait on for a year. Sigh. Still highly recommend this especially if it will be your first LitRPG book gives you a good understanding of the genre in my view.

    15. Not bad, but the main villain just didn't make sense - at all. That kind of killed it for me, though the writing was OK and the plot itself (aside from the attempted bad guy) was decent.

    16. Definitely a translated Russian Litrpg, with the associated quirks, but I had a good time reading. Story moved along. Worth reading if you're into the genre.
