Future of immersive story telling

This is an incredible app for true sci-fi and fantasy fans looking to get more depth and immersive story content. Content gets unlocked as you progress … I love it!

Functionally of this app is a step above. Can easily switch between reading and listening. You can also look up something quickly on a map for context, review character dossiers, view pictures and take in ancillary background material. Imagine if Tolkien was alive today!

Definitely a game changer.
