The highlight of the story is definitely traveling with the MC as he gains levels, new blue magic abilities, and spells. He’s a min/maxer after my own heart and I thoroughly enjoyed his internal discussions about how to best build his character. He’s smart and gathers plenty of data to figure out the system before committing stat points or energy to leveling skills. The character build theorizing was detailed and fun.
There’s also plenty of action and adventure to be had as the MC fights monster after monster grind skill and magic levels. Towards the end there’s even a little town building and crafting.
One thing you won’t find here, is a real plot. It’s just not that kind of story. Yes, there are small story arcs and character development but there’s no overall big coherent plot for the novel other than the vague goals ‘we have to escape’ and ‘we have to get stronger’. That doesn’t mean it’s bad, it just is. That’s what a slice of life/daily adventure story is. It’s a lot like a TV or animated series like Dragonball Z. A series of smaller stories and events that gradually increase in difficulty that challenge the characters to get stronger. Don’t expect more and you won’t be disappointed. I know I wasn’t. I had a blast reading the story.
*note: I totally agree with the story that bacon and ranch are the highlights of a good life.
Score: 7 out of 10
From a technical standpoint the writing and editing were average it is the amount of fun I found the story to be that elevated this book to 4 stars instead of 3. It was easy reading that took me only an afternoon to finish. The biggest editing mistakes IMO were wrong or missing words there were some finicky things like a couple of affect vs. effect level things but one has to really be looking to find them. The last issue I had with the plot in general is that it lacked a MacGuffin there were some vague goals like survival and escape but no larger unifying plot device; it is likely that this will resolve itself in time and Elorion will find a "larger than himself" cause that will become a centralized theme in later installments.
Bottom line; I liked enough to buy the book after I read it for free and look forward to the next one.
There are elements of city/dungeon building hinted at for the future, as well as plenty of additional quests to undertake and places to explore.
I'm eagerly waiting for the next book in the series.
Pros: This is a decent page turner. World building and character development are catchy, even if they only explore one dungeon the entire book, I still got a good idea of the outside world.
