Publisher's Summary

An all powerful entity bestows individuals with a powerful brand in the form of a tattoo. Using the system that is controlled by the tattoo, you can learn supernatural abilities, acquire knowledge unknown to man, and acquire objects that would only be found in fiction. The world is changing...and it has yet to be determined if it is for better or worse. Two friends who grew up together, Ace and Vincent, have been chosen. 

Ace lives for physical improvement. He loves the feeling of breaking his records and growing stronger. Unfortunately, he has plateaued in recent months, discouraging him greatly. Vincent is plagued by little to no desire in anything he does. Good grades? Successful life? He feels nothing. Except, perhaps, the feeling of pain and fear. Sadly for him, modern day society is a peaceful one. 

The arrival of the tattoo flipped their lives upside down. It granted them the ability to fulfill their desires. However...they weren't the only ones who were given the tattoo.

I wanted to like this.

This book had a good start, interesting theme. There just wasn't good story writing here. I picked up this series because really enjoyed Tower of Heaven from this same author. I just couldn't finish it, made it about 3 hours in before having to quit. The narrator didn't help matters. Very poor delivery from him. I wouldn't recommend this, but I would recommend his other title Tower of Heaven.

Overall pretty good

Has some refining to do

I really like the litprg genre, and this book is...similar to most titles I've read, however, it does take a fairly strong turn from a lot of tropes. It has a strong vein of system design in it, the author clearly wanted to make an infinitely scaling system for the MCs to move through and has designed that really well. The narrator is a bit bland at times, but it matches the writer's tone so I think it was a choice rather than a decrement, however, audio quality wasn't the greatest so I still will give it 4 perform stars.

Another solid RPG-In-Real-Life novel

This is a good trilogy that has a complete story in each installment, but gives room to continue the series. One of the things I enjoyed was that each book in the series was set in a different environment and circumstance.
I requested a copy of this series in order to review it.
If you are a fan of RPG stories, you should like it. Narration was strong as well. If I had one qualm it would simply be; how did these marks on people suddenly give then the abilities in an RPG universe?

Story was OK Voice acting not so much

The voice acting for the first book was almost unbearable but better in the 2nd/3rd.

Cool story bad reading

Going to be honest I really liked this story but the flat emotionless tone of the narrator is so jarring and constantly takes you out of the story

All that having been said if you enjoy lot rpg and zombie stories then this is a pretty good book for a miniut

I liked the story

The story itself I found was basic but interesting, didn't have a problem with it.

Conversations sounded ridged with he said this then he said that, they explained this, ect. Multiple times I was considering to stop just because it annoyed me so much.

Performance wasn't bad but most characters sounded pretty much the same. Didn't really bother me much.
