We continue our journey with Alan who has to choose which side to be on and what path of strength to take, solo or group?
He will be faced with betrayal once again, but time will show that he will rise even stronger to make the ultimate decision.
This will also be were the true truth will be shown, what the game really is and what for.

The book is well structured and the litrpg elements flow fluently through it as finally Alan stops being followed along with the strings of manipulations and takes things into his own digital hands.

Great narration from Nick Podehl as always.
The book did seem a bit rushed at the end a plot lines ended to quickly but what is life without abrupt ends.

I don't know if this is true but it did seem that the author did struggle a bit with this third book for some reason, all I can say here is that I want book 4 or well since this was a prequel trilogy perhaps book 1 then?

I spent most of my life trying to get by with whatever happiness I could, that included alcohol, food, and porn. My death was unpleasant and humiliating. However, death is something we all need to go through. A bit like a proctology exam: necessary, but never anything one wants to go through while it's happening. However, death was supposed to be the end of it. Either way, the pain, suffering, and failures were supposed to be over. No, I ended up as a small stone, strapped to a table, while a pimple-faced teenager rubbed my facets and told me how "lovely" I was.

The story is quite well structured and progresses in a good pace and the grammar is good.



But The mc is one of the most cringy ones I have ever seen, he tries to make light of everything and is trying to sound funny/witty all the time but fails.
He keeps freaking out whenever his patron pop-up all the time it simply gets old quickly.

the mc gets used like a dog on a leash with no free will despite him saying other wise it is still not true, he gets used by the gods in such way without any remorse as they continue to "convince" the reader that they are right and you are wrong despite you beign right all a long.

The mc gets small benefits from blessings from them that rarely do anything, the mc dosnt use practical knowledge from is former world.

The gods pervert his mind by reading it leaving no privacy what so ever and the Mc is completely fine with it.

The whole ordeal ended with him suffering through and becoming an enemie of many and now need to repay a favor for something he did not cause, all this trouble and all he gets is a "sorry" and no reward what so ever while the gods get limitless power from a tool they no longer need.

The story continues, following the events of its predecessor. In the anime world, Satovia, Clyde still battles the anime tropes, but no longer dances at the fingertips of the watchers. However, his friends have real issues, problems that intertwine with his own mission. Casting away selfishness, he finds himself awakening his real power.

I reviewed the first book though some things are still the same such as all the rape it has at the same time it has improved in all other aspects I noted before.

It has become more "anime like" in some aspect though it seems that all slice of life stuff seems to be skipped forward for fast plot progression.

The sex scenes can be pretty much described as pure hentai in this novel, but the author still lacks a bit of writing experience in that department.

though the narrator is good i would have liked a female one since there are more of those than males and make in the story.

No one knows where the Dungeon came from, or why. One young immigrant braves the Dungeon to remit money to his family, only to find much, much more. Friends, power, and secrets of the Dungeon. Perhaps even love.

I really liked the world but it is almost described as vrmmo type since it has specific Classes and levels.
The author describe the leveling process in a more in a "you increased in strenght" in a simplefied way instead of you have gained exp exp exp... spam.

but then i really dont like how some of the characters act i have secrets that can kill you all but i want you to trust me 100%, then there is the thing that I personaly hate and that is that the mc blushes at the every little small tease and the MC is the Only one.. I not saying he should act like some emotionless person but i am tired of manchildren in these types of novels..

At times the author reduces mcs iq to progress an obvious plot.
despite all this its a solid novel.

The beginning plot is something i have seen in atleast 4 other lit's so nothing new there.

I thought I would enjoy it anyways but the plot armor is way to strong in this one, the moment he is about to die his companion kills a mob the very last moment and he levels up to full hp this happened several times.

then he blushes like a 12 year old seing something naked for the first time when talks to friend despite his personality beign nothing close to it so it just dosnt make sense that he blushes while the bookworm dosnt..

I will start with that I really do like this series and its magic system. but the relationship he has with the girls and the interactions is simply bad... The author makes the interaction in such a way that mc will always be in the losing side always! the way he ask them, despite hiding secrets such as his friends hiding the fact that his family are basicly now prisoners. despite all this he is so god damn submissive that it is disgusting.
The girls look at some handsome stud but he is not allowed. etc
despite all this the novel is good but I dont know if ill buy the third one.

The story is inconsistent, in the beginning he has this sense of danger but then it is just gone all of a sudden. there are many other thing that just dont make sense like when the author explains the world but not enough that we become confused when all of a sudden there are guns in a world with magic, like what the hell? and it comes with out warning. those People use words that scientists on earth uses but all of a sudden these people that have never heard of it or should not know the meaning of it. his companion is complete useless in the story as well, they have know each other for 1 day like they are best friends and would give they life for each other this relationship is so forced by the author.
but then at the very end we get the biggest spoilers ever for those who lnow how to read between the lines will know what I mean.
o and i read up to ch3 and the author not only gave the mc the lowest iq i have ever seen but makes his reaction to things as if he were some 6year old child.

The rules of reality have changed. All types of zombies have appeared with only one goal: Kill the living. Eric and his schoolmates must survive by adapting and growing stronger, but that's easier said than done. The undead get stronger with every passing day, and that's not even mentioning the blood moons. Even worse, the military and police seem to have disappeared.

I have read quite a few litrpg's with zombies as the main thing and at first I thought oh it's just another one of those run of the mill survivals were they have a base and run around in a group and at that time well I have read better but it was not the worst so i rated it 4/10 in my mind already. But after half of the book went by I started to change my mind and the book became what I secretly hoped the Mc went solo. The ending was quite the surprise and a bit of a pleasant twist, with that I rated it 8/10.

The narrator is one of the worst one's I have heard, he's got the male/female different voices down good but it just sounds so monotone.

I dunno if the author will make a sequel but if he does I hope the mc will go solo, groups are so overrated!

as title said this story has now been taken over or so it feels once you reach the end. He will gain strenght alot of it but still it feels like to little, I dont like the setup the author made no mather how strong mc will get his companions (future)will magicly keep up with him so it gives the feeling that he is just a very small part of the solution while others are the real one. I would prefer a wuxia were the mc would leave and gain strenght on his own instead of begging but not in this novel.
