In the player-versus-player MMORPG, Fantasy Realms Online, people live out the fantasies they can’t in real life, no matter how bloody or sexy they might be, and Kromgorn the Barbarian is no exception. He and his guildies make constant warfare against their rivals in the Secret Order, a guild led by the dark Lich-Lord, who’s also rumored to be a crazy hacker in real life, and they make fun of players who just use the game for stupid things like getting laid.
But when the Lich-Lord releases a powerful spell that traps most of the players in the game permanently, Kromgorn accidentally winds up stuck in the avatar of his friend, Lacey – a stupid, low-level female character that was designed exclusively to get down and dirty with the in-game pleasure system. Even worse, he gets captured by the orcs and thrown into their harem dungeon, where he finds he’s powerless to resist his captors! The developers really modeled female bodies correctly in this game, and it’s humiliating to have to go from being a high-level barbarian to a simpering little harem girl.
With his guild drawing closer to an epic encounter with the Lich-Lord, they need all the high-level players they can get! Will Krom figure out a way to get himself out of this useless body and get back in time to help his friends, or will he be stuck forever working on his back in a dirty harem dungeon? The only way out of this mess might be to give in to his situation and embrace his new body in order to outmaneuver his foes.
Who knows? He might even end up enjoying himself….
With hours of humorous, gender-swapped fantasy action and some very steamy scenes, this audiobook is intended for mature audiences who enjoy FF and MF encounters with lots of gender-bending fun.
Ryan Pascall –
Ok, let’s deal with the elephant in the room first. Yes, this is a sexually explicit LitRPG.
As a rule, while I love LitRPGs, I don’t like harem/sexually explicit types but, having chosen to rely this one, I will review based on the book itself and not my own personal opinions of this type of novel.
Story-wise, it’s pretty simply and tight with a character trapped in the virtual body of a female courtesan after years as a half-giant barbarian and basically having to learn their new abilities and seek a way to reverse what’s happened.
Comedy is there and is usually cheeky, almost Carry On style and there are several sex-scenes but, while explicit, it doesn’t feel dirty or over the top which is impressive.
Narration throughout was really good with amusing squeaky girl moments and I particularly liked the voice for the big-bad.
While my heart says I should dislike the book I honestly can’t say I do. The humour was good, the story lacks unnecessary padding and it manages to fit loads of XXX sex without feeling smutty and as such I will be trying the sequel also to see how our mister-miss proceeds.

This is so against my will.
This took me a little bit to get into. But it’s a good beginning for a series. I also can’t wait for more of this, I want to say more about this story but I absolutely hate spoilers, so I won’t do it to you by going into details. I wish we could give half stars I’d have given this a 3 1/2 stars.
The narrator brings the story to life.
