Another great book with my usual complaint.

I support Tao Wong on Patreon. (If you’re a fan of up and coming writers and you don’t know what that is I highly recommend you check it out immediately). I appreciate how regularly he publishes, and I’m a big, fat fanboy. So I can confidently say that this book was just as enjoyable a LitRPG tale as the rest of his body of work.

My only complaint is the same one I’ve had with several of Wong’s other works... it’s too short. That said I consider anything over 8 hours to be worth a credit, however I often (but not always) feel that the books in his series seem like they’re several hours shorter than they should be. The result is that they can feel serialized and episodic rather than like solid, fully-realized installments.

All that said, I highly enjoyed this book and though I would have liked to see a whole lot more gear upgrades, loot drops, and “character” development (in a skills and levels sense), this book is still more than worth the credit.

Not much to say. If you liked the previous books you won't be disappointed. I'm interested in the next one.
