What I like about this book is that the world within the game is interesting enough that the author doesn't feel the need to throw in some dystopian plot lines (evil game company, government, ai, gods, hackers) out to enslave mankind or otherwise take over the world. I get just how dangerous the tech is. I don't need that in my litrpg.

Destroying city blocks, battling heroes, and working toward a sinister master plan...all part and parcel of Doctor Dire's day. But when unexpected interference from a time-travelling enemy throws her back in time, she finds herself up against an evil more vile than she could ever be. It's Dire versus the Third Reich, and the poor Nazi bastards have no idea what they're in for. Meanwhile, back in present day, Dire's friends and allies must scramble to fend off both heroes and villains, while trying to assemble the means to return Dire to her proper time.

I was not expecting the ending at all. Original, completely insane/sane and wonderful/horrible. Like Dire.

Not sure how I feel about the ending and what it implies about the later books. I'm not sure I want to hear Dire go through that again. Dire is tough and all but is she tough enough? Am I? I pitty Dire. Regardless, I will be buying the next book. I'm not sure if a sequel even makes sense at this point. Too many unknowns are eplained. I'm not sure there is enough left to do. She punched Hitler afterall.

The narration is perfect, I couldn't ask for more.

The book isn't bad but it's kinda bland. It lacks suspense. That said it's unlike other dungeon core books in that nobody enters the dungeon for the first ¾ of the book. The performance is excellent.

Broke, almost homeless, and recently fired. Those are my official reasons for answering a wanted ad for a skeevy-looking bartender gig. It went downhill the moment they asked me to do a trial shift instead of an interview - to see if I'd mesh with their "special" clientele. I think that part went great. Their customers were complete dickheads, and I was an asshole right back. That's the definition of fitting in, right? I expected to get thrown out on my ass. Instead, they...offered me the job? It turns out this place isn't a bar. It's a guild.

When the newest VRMMORPG title gets announced, Adam and his best friend, Max, are more than ready to dive in. Launch day arrives quickly, and Adam is plunged into a world that’s more immersive than anything he’s experienced before. Although the game offers a bevy of character choices, Adam quickly chooses the title of Slayer, a class that specializes in taking down stronger, more difficult opponents. Adam begins his adventure, but it's not long before he realizes there’s much more at stake when taking a life in this new game. The pain is very real, and death...is permanent.

I had no intention of liking this book when I started reading; the concept did not interest me but I was running out of books.

This type of book can only go a couple of ways "surprise, you're trapped inside a game" or "surprise, you're trapped and it's not a game". Both I find irritating. The best twist I saw was the "surprise: your in a game... and your meatspace is also a game and always has been" this is not that book. This is yet another trapped-in-a-game-book. Nothing new here.

Dispite my dislike of the very concept of this book I must admit to one thing: It's not bad. I was hoping for something unforgivingly bad so I could stop in good conscience. It never happened. I finished it. ok I stopped before the glossary. but really that doesn't count.

Meet Threadbare. He is 12 inches tall, full of fluff, and really, really bad at being a hero. Magically animated and discarded by his maker as a failed experiment, he is saved by a little girl. But she's got problems of her own, and he might not be able to help her. Fortunately for the little golem, he's quick to find allies, learn skills, gain levels, and survive horrible predicaments. Which is good, because his creator has a whole lot of enemies …

The decision to start a new life is never an easy one, but for Joe the transition was far from figurative. Becoming a permanent addition to a game world, it doesn't take long to learn that people with his abilities are actively hunted. In fact, if the wrong people gained knowledge of what he was capable of, assassins would appear in droves.

Haven't gotten far in the story yet but finally an author who has solved the narration problem of spending 5 minutes reading skill sheets. I'll update the review when I finish the book.

When Fred formed his own parahuman clan out of necessity, he understood that it was going to come with new responsibilities. Much as he hoped those tasks would center around extra paperwork and perhaps the occasional mandatory class, enough time around the supernatural has taught him to be ready for anything. Or so he thought. As a freelance accountant for the Agency, Fred soon finds himself being tossed into new, unexpected, and perilous situations.

This book is like the other books in the series. If you liked the others you will like this, the quality and writing style are very consistent. On the other hand if you disliked the previous books you will dislike this one aswell. It's really terrible. The main character is so PC it's sickening. I don't know why I keep buying them. Maybe it's because despite not being good they at least aren't totally distasteful. I will likely stop with the series here.

Only a few weeks have passed since the Battle of Burrova, and Edward and his friends are busier than ever improving the Haunt and protecting the surviving villagers. Sadly, time is a scarce commodity in the world of Ivalis. Soon enough, Ed finds himself thrown in conflict against the man behind the mindbrood’s attack, a man who is seemingly capable of shrugging off mortal wounds and who is willing to unleash a devastating plague of undead against the Haunt and everyone inside.

My only complaint is the amount of time spent on the skill sheets. Basically you can skip them and not miss anything... which is what I ended up doing by skipping ahead 30-60 seconds.
