Where the book was strong, it was very well done.
The reason for only four stars?
There were some character choices that did not ring true for me. There were some parts/ choices/ scenes that I would not have done, but you may enjoy it more than I did. The ending tied up a lot of plot points almost in a Hollywood 'let's all hold hands and sing' ending. Keep in mind I like things to be a bit on the dark side, so you may be cool with the finale and afterwards.
Having wrapped up so much with book one, does this mean book two must have even more action, adventure, and awesomeness?
I hope so. I’ll be looking for it to come out.
The game elements are relatively simple, but appear to be well-thought out. Simple is good, since it allows the author to keep the game elements important, including giving Talon the ability to strategize character building (an important game element which is often missing from litRPG) without going too much into technical details. I found the character well-developed and growing throughout the story, both of the MC and the others stuck in the game. The story is tense and I like the mystery and how it develops.
I am not entirely sure about the pacing. The story takes place in 1 day and a lot happens in it. Sure, Talon uses his wits, but most games are not this forgiving and earning 10 levels in 24 hours seems a bit extreme for a game that supposedly keeps people entertained for decades. Not overly important if you just care about the story, and the author might very well offer sollutions in future adventures. I am also not entirely sure about the concept of a game for the dead. Sure, I can belief that if you can copy a mind into a computer, keeping that mind entertained is important. Keeping that mind completely seperate from RL and not using it as a resource seems odd though. What value is there in preserving a mind if you do not intent to use it?
All in all, an entertaining read and I am curious about future parts. Certainly a good addition to the litRPG genre.
This author has a good mix of the real world affecting the game world. Characters are introduced and you get to know them better over time. Not deep but enough detail to be satisfying.
I think more detail on the villain and a few more adventure episodes,would have made it a much better book, it seems a little rushed. However giving it 3.5 and a bit rounded up.
The story was easily accessible, the characters were well written and the continuing revelations really surprised me.
That the main protagonist uses his logical thinking skills in lieu of brute force also helped to strongly endear him to me and it's something surprisingly few books do.
Overall, this was a great book and has opened up a new genre I really didn't even know was a thing.
I'd definitely recommend it!
Pros: After the two thirds point I find the authors writing quite good. When I thought I knew what was coming something else would happen to keep the mystery alive until the end.
Emily read and enjoyable, no hard thinking required.

Characters are believable.
Adventures and lots of looting. No leaving unlimited bodies just laying around.
