Publisher's Summary

Dan’s first tournament may have ended, but life goes on. His luck is still with him in his regular life as well, and it seems to be endless. However, he is surrounded by very smart people, and surely one of them is going to start doubting his talents, at least a bit?

Especially now, with a new game about to start. The latest foes are even more dangerous than the last and the rules are still unfamiliar to him. Dan wonders how reasonable the rules are in the first place. Is it really possible to take a competition that lasts a couple of hours at most seriously? A competition in which you are supposed to work together with simple monsters in order to destroy the enemy base?

And so, the story of an ordinary Russian guy who suddenly found himself in the future continues, and another battle between his luck and the rest of the world is about to start. Who will come out on top?

Book 1 worked as an MMO/RTS. MOBA though? Really?

So the first book was decent. Not great, just decent. It was amusing with the whole, "I'm doing everything horribly but it's working out due to luck and everyone thinks I'm a genius and I don't realize it" thing in book 1. If you don't take it seriously, it made for a decent romp.

However, book 2 just doesn't work. It's a MOBA (League of Legends/DotA) setting. It just doesn't work. It's terrible. Nothing makes sense.

Here is a summary of this entire book. If you think it sounds fun, then buy it. If you don't, I promise you will hate it.

A person plays League of Legends for the first time in their life against professional players. He walks around aimlessly in the jungle with no idea what to do. The enemy team comes and kills him. As a result, his teammate is able to take a tower. Everyone loses their mind at what a genius the MC is for dying in the jungle. The game ends for no reason. The MC is treated like a king.

It's that bad. That is the book. Over and over and over. If you're reading this, you likely enjoyed the first one. So did I. But this is not salvageable at all.

Winning By Accident: League of Legends Fan-Fiction

You know that "main character is a undeservingly self-confident ****-up, very clumsy, couldn't fight their way out of a paper bag but will land a glancing blow and shout 'Hell yeah!' as if they just knocked out Mike Tyson" trope? Where whatever mistakes they make (and still somehow win by accident - literally every time in every situation) everyone around them gasps and over-thinks it into oblivion to conclude that they're a genius and was playing "a hundred moves ahead"in 4D chess when the guy actually didn't even know the rules, and is a complete idiot who literally lucked/ciocidenced his way to victory at every turn?

Basically that. For the entire series so far. Set in a Leage of Legends Fan Fiction. If you're thinking 'Wow, that sounds like it would get old very quickly,' you would be 100% correct. It does. The narrators are fantastic, however. They did the best anyone could expect of them to make the 'plot' and 'story' entertaining. They would have done McGuyver proud in that regard... but the story is still not good. At least the first book's game plot was decent (aka not based on League of Legends, and somewhat more original), but after Trudging my way through this second volume, I won't be seeking new books in this series in the future. Will definitely check the Narrators' future projects out though.

Not a worthy successor

I loved the first book but this one felt like two books unrealized. There was no growth in the characters, they only seemed to regress with each new chapter. I’m disappointed for what seemed like a good story was cut short in favor of off beat jokes and perpetual ignorance by the main characters. It work in the first book but fell flat here.

My Favorite Series

I absolutely love the way this series is written, it's just so beautiful and human with all the misunderstandings. Thank you to the authors and actors alike, great job.

Not as good as the first

The beginning was ok but it was to romantic for my taste and it was really repetitive. telling the story from different perspectives is good and all but constantly hearing the same stuff over and over again is kind of tiresome.

An ending that brings hope to all men

For some reason the “Code Hero” books leave me somewhat confused. However despite this I find the books very pleasing. The multiple perspective story-lines, from the various characters, is an excellent way of telling multiple stories in one book; each of which could actually stand on their own. Albeit in the form of novellas. However this book stands out from the first one with its ending. It really made me feel that there could be hope that somewhere out there, there is a woman that would feel joy in discovering who I really am and in so doing, be willing to run and smile and look forward to see what the future holds, with me.

too sexual

first book was clean, this book was not super dirty but I don't know why all the sexual hinting was important to include. I like the story enough just not the innuendo
