Publisher's Summary

Now a Level 10 ronin, Seiki is slowly coming to terms with the death of Master Tsujihara and his new life in Shinshioka.

Spending his days in the Wilderness, he’s venting his remaining frustrations while staying away from the city drama and those griefers, like the Rogami Clan, who had made his in-game experience so challenging thus far. He has even taken up a trade skill. 

But when he’s presented with an offer he can’t refuse and accepts a simple mission to deliver a message to Kano Castle, he quickly finds his troubles are only just beginning. Caught in an imbroglio that will only get worse the more he tries to do well, Seiki will set off a series of events that will lead to chaos, death, and the eventual destruction of an entire territory. 

Surrounded by betrayal, hidden agendas, and people looking to take advantage of him, who can Seiki really trust? 

When everything is not what it seems, it can be impossible to differentiate between friends and foes. 

Bushido Online: Friends and Foes is the second book in the Bushido Online series, a work of litRPG fiction.

Just as great as the first book

I like how they made the mystery solvable but not obvious, and I really like the the growth of Seki as a character. Only complaint is that there isnt a third book yet but that’s just me being impatient.

Great feel for period, but forced plot progression

So the good and bad. The tldr version: loved the game mechanics, some of the complexity of plot and heavy action of the book. Did not like the heavy-handed approach to plot development. Also, the narrator did a great job.

I loved the world. Well developed and kept in theme with its intrigue and shadow plots as well as a fair amount of decent people. But way more shady people (in terms of NPC’s). The combat system was well described as well and progressed with each addition of growth in a fully “game mechanic” sort of way. Meaning, the present encounter is difficult, but mainly because of his level and need to master a new skill, but as he better grasps it, the encounter becomes more manageable. Also, the MC’s friends have a lot more potential but they were kind of glossed over.

And the bad... for me, personally, there were a lot of situations that were “forced”. Everything from making the MC not be able to figure anything out even after getting force feed all previous points just so he can ask a question and the author can fully explain some point or other. Ignorance is normal, every MC is ignorant of something’s, but don’t make them ignorant just because of sloppy plot progression. Also, most of the issues the MC is in is because of sloppy-plot-progression decisions and actions forced into place. Like, the MC could have gotten away, but instead just stands there through an entire dialogue swoop then gets scared when they point him out. Forcing a story where Everyone is after one low-level toon... they are so forced it breaks the immersion. This point is one of the reasons why I’m beginning to despise PVP heavy stories.

The narrator did a great job bring everything together, really put a better spin on a decent story.

A wonderful world of tech based litrpg!

Great character development and a new world to explore. An enjoyable listen or read for litrpg fans of all ages. It also features fairly clean humor and plot twists along the way. I hope everyone enjoys this as much as me.
