Writing Style: B+ (Would give this an A, other than the introduction not being to my personal taste)
Character Development: B+ (Enjoyed the multi-viewpoints, demonstraights author's ability to tell a complex story)
The main characters were written well. Even there however there's room for improvement. The bad guys are cardboard cut-out caricatures that have to do every evil thing you can imagine to prove they're the bad guys. They have no real motivation or logic beyond establishing that they're bad.
Honestly it's not worth the current price of 6 bucks. Though knowing what it had in store, I would still buy it at around 3.
The LitRPG in this is light- I think that 'stats' are only listed a handful of times, as they only apply to magical skills, not strength/dexterity and so forth. It's a good setup story for the rest of the series, though it does have somewhat of a bubble of awareness problem. As in, the descriptions and such in the book don't paint a larger picture outside of what immediately affects the protagonists. I would have liked to have more descriptions of their surroundings, both people and the city, and what people thought about the world they were in and their place in it. As it is, we see mostly resignation coupled with unease, except for a couple of (very fun) side characters. This, my worries that the polyamorous future hinted at for one of the characters, and the romance aspect in general will become A Thing, is the only negatives I took away from this book.
It's a fun adventure, with the characters taking more of a realistic, "Let's think about how we can twist the rules to do the unexpected and play to our strengths" approach, like Joel Rosenberg's Guardians of the Flame series. This leads to them being vastly overpowering in the final part, but, as one character pointed out, that was an enormous mistake, since they won't be underestimated in the future, and they've made themselves too interesting and dangerous to fly under the radar. Characters are insecure about how others In their fledgling company perceive them, and start to grow and change, not always for the better, which is nice to see. I'm very much looking forward to the next book, and recommend this to those who liked Awaken Online, The Gam3, and The Land series.
I'm looking forward to more and it would be neat if you compare level ups to something like the PC version of Final Fantasy 14 or Lineage 2. I'm looking forward to reading more litrpg now. Thanks!
