The Genesis Game; Andrew O'Kelley


Title: The Genesis Game: Volume 1 (Audiobook)
Series: World Apocalypse Dungeon Calamity #1
Author: Andrew O'Kelley
Narrator: Curt Bonnem
Genre: Fantasy
Publication Date: June 03, 2020
Publisher: Spectrum Audio

The end of the era of humanity was marked by the appearance of the World Dungeon and the system of power it provided. No one gained more power than the tyrant known as the Black Seraph, the Angel of Genocide. Surviving at the expense of the rest of humanity, Seraph was able to complete the World Dungeon upon reaching the Altar of the End. A hollow victory, as he was cursed by the spirit of the dungeon for ruthlessly focusing on his empowerment.

His power was sealed away, deep within the dungeon; Seraph was cast into the past, reincarnated into the body of his child-like self. Forbidden from hoarding power for himself and charged with the mission of ensuring the survival of humanity. But people do not change overnight, and Seraph must find a new path forward and learn there's more to power than being a tyrant if humanity is to survive the Genesis Game

*A Thank you go Netgalley for allowing me to listen to this book. Here is my honest and unbiased review*


Hello Fellow Listeners,

While I am not much of an audiobook listener, I do partake especially when I take baths or relaxing or when an Audiobook is just too good to pass up. The Genesis Game ticked all the boxes of a great audiobook, the Narrator did different voices, great audio cues (music) throughout the book that built ambiance, and it felt like a professional production not just a person reading a book.

The main character, Seraph, was unique and interesting. He was a bit edgy but it fit with the whole anti-hero theme. It was a very nice change of pace, with Seraph evolving as the story progresses but at the core still remaining himself. O'Kelley's world was pretty unique and flushed out for the amount of time that the audiobook was. As a whole, I was surprised with how everything came together and worked. I do wish it was longer, and it did make me happy to learn that there was a sequel in which I will definitely listen to and read.

Overall, A great series that I cannot wait to continue.
