I solidly enjoyed the read, and look forward to more books in this universe.
Continuing to make his mark on the gamelit genre that began with The Wastes of Keldora, Raizman introduces us to an all new tale of a young man desperate to prove that he can make a career out of Entomology, and boy does he ever. Transported to a new world, he is forced to rely on his particular set of skills in ways he never considered as he fights just to survive.
Despite the bleak-sounding synopsis, the story is quite comedic. It knows what it is, and never takes itself too seriously. It is an homage from a fan that has great respect for the source material: lighthearted, fast-paced, and fun.
I hope the author enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I can't wait to catch the sequel!
Pros: Really good pacing. For all that there is to learn about the world, it never feels like an info-dump. It's Kritt-battle heavy, but the fights don't drag on. In short: there's never a dull moment.
The novelty of the world and uniqueness of the characters make it easy to keep up with, and even remembering the character name + Kritt name + Kritt species wasn't hard - and I'm notoriously bad with names. So giving this a plus for introducing characters well and general memorability.
Cons: I would have liked to see a bit more character depth, and for all the characters are superficially unique, every member of the cast is an equal opportunist on the banter - which can make for fun reading, but comes off shallow/same-y in retrospect. Still, I'd compare it to an action movie - the banter *is* fun and witty, so come into the book expecting that and not a treatise on the human condition and it'll be fine. Certainly, this mirrors the energy of Pokemon cartoons extremely well, and the main character is the embodiment of that.
Overall: An easy, fun read with an endearing cast, and a great introduction to the LitRPG genre. Who *doesn't* want to see domesticated, super-sized ants and bees begging for pets and bacon?
Is a creative story teller.
The moment Caleb and Antoinette jumped out of danger and into the light, I was hooked. Fun times. Thank you, Sir. This book was a joy to read.
I enjoyed the book but am not a fan of the card game/Pokemon approach. The book was well paced and the hero is likeable and not overpowered. His snarky companion is interesting and fun, her gay brother and his spouse are heroic, and the bad guys are really evil and easy to dislike. For those of you who are disturbed by bad grammar there's some but not much. I don't care much for the core mechanics of the books I will not be continuing to read the series, if I'd been interested in the mechanics of the pet fighting system I would have rated this book with four stars.
What made the book extra special too me was the inclusion of a gay couple! THANK YOU! I love diversity in all shapes and forms in my literature.
Overall a really good first book to the saga. I will be waiting for the next one.
PS: I got a little dissapointed that the MC only bonds with one Kritt
