Thrust into an unknown, unwanted situation, most would feel panic, fear anger, and fall into chaos. Erik and Rugrat are not immune to those feelings, but they have stepped into chaos so many times, it is simply a different challenge. Two weeks ago, Erik lost his legs and his arm. Today he got a message. "You have been randomly selected to join the Ten Realms. One may choose to ascend the Ten Realms, thereupon making a request to the Gods of the Realms. Only those who are Level 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, and 90 may ascend to the next realm. Fortune favors the strong!”

this is a maintenance event book great start it's something that someone who's just getting into the genre can put the towel into to get started funny things happen for those of you like romance your love our skeleton librarian the drawbacks are where he puts the obligatory power they often should take a page from Charles Dean where he puts everything at the end I'm a tractor so you can skip it to get to the story if you want to as for the narrator this should be done with two people fish narrator and someone from soundbooth theater live would have made this so much better

Gryff never knew he was the most powerful summoner in the world until a rogue monster attacked his village. Now he's been recruited into the top magical academy, beautiful women are breaking down his dorm-room door, and the headmaster has big, big plans for him. Instead of summoners being maligned by society, Gryff is in a position to make them revered and honored.

but overall I've only given two Stars the reason for that is the editor of this story has made it so it's like a skipping record that continually but hits a certain spot skips repeats skips repeats this is so bad I'm returning it but I'm doing so under a protest that the author should be paid by the editor for how horribly they've mango the story by their doing this practice of skipping and repeating sentences

the story was excellent but you can tell that this was translator I translate badly there are certain terms that's just are not done correctly pushes you out of the story either that or the person who did the narration doesn't know this genre very well and the terminologies because they were excellent except for the fact that without having the knowledge base of the terminologies it just destroyed the whole thing

Drew Michalik was working in a top-secret facility in Washington, DC, when the Advent began. As all electronics in the world simply ceased to work, blue screens filled with information appeared before him. Drew was given access to a mana interface and a limited number of reality-altering crystals called Xatherite. Following the instructions on his vision-impairing screens, he "slotted" his Xatherite and changed his fate: He gained the ability to cast spells. Now alone in the dark, he must battle through the government bunker turned dungeon in a desperate bid for survival.

out of all the books that I have read in the genre this one reads last like a book and more like a pitch for Netflix live action series and that's a good thing not much still have to be done to in prep for the script it's exciting it has a lot of possibilities this has a magic system based on crystals that could have a good visual effect to it I'm putting a plug in here right now Ottawa Canada has some pretty good tax breaks for authors and has some film studios who could do this as well as world-class animation houses hint hint

In a not-too-distant future ripe with marvels of technological convenience, wage and work disparity are as rampant as they ever were. A new game makes a claim that's bolder than its competition: So long as players are logged in, they'll have extra time to live. Like most, Corbin has been stunted by the real world. Now that chance has given him a new lease on life in the form of a game, he'll do whatever it takes to pursue it.

Thomas always enjoyed kingdom/city simulation games. When he discovers there is a kingdom building expansion to the hugely popular VRMMORPG Lewd Saga, he is determined to join the sensual fantasy game and build his destiny. Thomas becomes Edric Temple, summoner and adventurer, searching for others to help build a kingdom while a war rages across all of Lukken. The player slowly realizes Lewd Saga is more than just a fantasy game. Dark plots, torn hearts, and medieval politics will place the summoner in the eye of the storm between guilds, troll masters and what his heart truly desires.

this author has a problem that great at what they do they could work in the political Romance harem genre and the world buildings genre and here they do a good job of it but that's also the problem because you can see that if she worth making us just a World building book it would be up there with books like world seed thing with this author is they can do anything it's just to have to concentrate on one genre at a time to show their true genius and in this they did not

if you look at what I've given this buy the Stars it doesn't reflect what this book shows of this author because the author shows that they could become one of the best Dungeon core authors out there and that's saying something this book shows amazing I know how to do make a plot a story that's compelling unfortunately with this story The Harem it is not needed and it's a negative for the story because it slows it down and gets in the way of the genius of this author hopefully this author we'll go back to the drawing board Jenison hair on part of it and show this author can play in the same level such greats the Divine dungeon serious or a the princesses slime

Instead of enjoying the game, I found myself trapped inside my character's dead body. Now the only way I can save myself is by procuring the Scroll of Rebirth. The problem is my chances of getting it are slim. I'm an undead: an outlaw with no friends, only fickle allies and plenty of enemies. Who are only waiting for their chance to strike. My undead hangman character has to tread a razor's edge, with only the support of his fellow players preventing his imminent plunge into the abyss. But are they who they claim they are?

the problem with this one is that according to Ramon from the lit RPG podcast this is only a two book series at this time hopefully that changes and this becomes a five or six book series it's good but it needs another narrator this just wasn't something suited for him and it took away from story you can also tell that the translation was a little rougher than usual and given that the two translators are superb at what they do this disappointed me can't wait for the next one to come out because I believe that this can be a better series Once the author commits to how many books he wants to do so he can flush everything out better than he was able to do in these two books

Now, he is dying from a virus threatening humankind with extinction. He has three days to live. When Hector’s brother contacts him after years of hostile silence, Hector goes to try and make peace.
