There is an apothecary that was modeled after a 7-11 which made me feel l like I knew exactly what the MC was walking into. When dealing with NPCs the layers were not just handed quests. They had to deal with grumpy, surly, and even just overworked NPCs. It was fun to watch them interact with each character they met. This is a game I would play. This is a book I will finish. Real-life just got in the way.
The only reason I didn't give it a full 5/5 was that some of the battles were long and detailed. My mind wanders in those areas. If you are a battle buff, this book is perfect for you.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Amalie, the female protagonist, is a bit manipulative, but has a sense of humor and is overall a nice addition to the tale (unlike an annoying female sidekick that joins the party later and was one of the few characters I disliked). Amalie has some insider connections to one of the major factions (guilds) in this game and that greatly impacts the overall plot. There seemed to be a lot of faction activity and player activity for an alpha test, but that just seems weird, it doesn't really hurt the story.
The overall story is good and the book has a satisfactory stopping point. My only other concern is that I noticed the author has another short story out in this universe, but it is currently only available if you purchase it. I will read the second book in this series if it available in Kindle Unlimited. However, I didn't enjoy the book enough to buy the sequel.
All the characters in the book had distinct personalities, and I liked that it switched between two of the characters to give different perspectives, even if they weren’t separated often. Some chapters would step back and show part of a fight or an encounter from the other main character’s point of view, which worked pretty well and didn’t hurt the pacing. On that note, the fight scenes were pretty detailed but didn’t overstay their welcome and made good use of the characters’ abilities.
The plot itself was fun, ramping up from intro quest to high stakes, and the author seems to be setting up for base building or dungeon core elements in future books. I’ll be following this series, I’m interested to see where the author takes things next.
Here it is.
Yes you do.
I know this cause I did...and I'm excited for more of it.
