Publisher's Summary

Grab your sword and get ready to level up.

The only way out is through.

Unbeknownst to him, Ray is about to partake on an adventure filled with magical beasts, warring factions, and a leveling-up system out of this world. He'll encounter filthy bandits, musty crypts, and friendly werewolves. Oh, you heard us right.

If only he wasn't given negative charisma points around women, he might have a chance, but you can't win them all.

When the only way out of the game may be through, you fight like your life depends on it. Because it just may. Survival means victory, and defeat could mean the end - forever.

Note from the authors: This one's for the underdogs out there. For lovers of adventure, the dice rollers of chaos, and the unapologetic gamers. We can't promise it'll be safe, but we can promise you're in for one great journey.

And off to sleep you go...

The beginning of this book is interesting. The pacing feels good, there is some intrigue, and then all the small cracks in the foundation start to grow and the book just becomes tedious.

Why? I think the pacing of the narration is partly to blame. It is very sing-song-y...I was hiking and it suddenly came to me that the spirit of William Shatner was reading the book. Every other sentence was the most important sentence ever spoken aloud.

The other problem I had was the a whole middle section that felt completely unnecessary...basically everything after the prison break can be skipped until he walks in of the Dark King's castle....and even then it's questionable.

Is it worth a credit...no I don't think so, there are better books out there. Is it worth a read...maybe??

Awful Rambo-esc Gary Sue

If you could have an extreme Gary Sue character then the MC would be it. Unrealistic interactions with other people. "I know you less than 24 hours but we are now like brothers" kind of bs. Low level character kills million year old litch. Half the fights and characters are rewrites copied from other LitRPG books, most notably "The Land". even the names basically the same with the addition of a letter to avoid copyright. Stay away.

Excellent!

This book is well put together. The story is one of fantasy from my childhood. Like going to Never-never land or Narnia. Being a gamer from a young age this strikes an even closer cord, more like Tron or becoming the protagonist in your favorite video game with one life left and everything to lose.
