So much FUN!!!

Moooooore!!! I love ant more! I’ll be off to buy a credit from Audible so I can start the next t story. The magic system works, the world is vibrant and the characters are engaging. Really enjoy the narration. I love this World that has been created. Keep them coming. Rally curious where they’ll take Nari’s character.

Cool story; lots of action

I enjoyed this book for the most part. Nari was out of commission for most of the book so it sucked she couldn't fight. Introducing a new character to fight with Ellum was cool though. Like the first book this stays true to a open world video game.

To many inconsistencies to forgive

I could not move beyond the inconsistency of his real life brother somehow not only entering the world but different event in story imply years of experience, knowledge, and skills earned within the world.

Original premise was that this was an unreleased new gaming world. Ok maybe it was released after his death but if so how hasn’t main character met any other players? His brother is the first real person he meets and his brother says he bought VR accessories to make the game feel more real implying it’s a run of the mill game. His brother didn’t get asked to investigate by the gaming company and get special access to the servers. According to story he is there on his own entering and exiting at will.

I kept waiting for main character to realize how inconsistent his brother’s story is and that he is being tricked like with dark king in first book. But the only fool was myself for not picking up on how many inconsistencies or contradictions were in the first book as well.

More the fool me for not picking up on just how childish some scenes have been. I’m so used to reading books to my kids for young adults that I was well into this book before I realized that yes indeed publishers no longer care about quality or well written content.

Overall great premise for the story but awful exicution. On the bright side unlike many others books I’ve read in the past I will have absolutely no regrets leaving the story here and will not read the next book in the series

Really like this series

I am listening to this with my son who is a gamer and he also enjoys it! You can imagine that it is you in the game and that is fun too. Only one slight is that it takes a minute to get used to the performers voice but once you do, he becomes the characters.

a good read

I can't sit here and act like the book isn't good. The only issue I have is the fact that he says the name Ilum way too many times. Though a pet peeve, I still think that most readers understand pronouns.

A step down from the first book

This was really hard to get through.

The first book established a world, a set cadence, and the main protagonist’s personality and behavior was consistent and his choices made sense.

This second book in the series is jarring. The main characters brother shows up and is at times the serious one, at other times makes completely dangerous and nonsensical choices like at one time putting his brothers life, who will die permanently if he dies again, on the line via a practical joke.

The main protagonist is even worse. He constantly makes stupid and reckless decisions throughout the story that only serves to add more troubles and stuff to do later. His attitude sucks and his personality seems different from the first book. He’s more of a jerk and is hard to like sometimes which is baffling because that was not the case in the first book.

The dialogue has too many corny memes and pop culture references that seemed forced took me out of the moment. The narrator has a very annoying cadence to his voice whenever he’s not voicing dialogue that has gone speaking almost monotone before inflecting just speech HIGHER at the end…of a sentence and then a PAUSE…before he goes back..to his monotone…voice. It never stops being bad and I don’t remember feeling that way about the narrator in the first book.

Anyway, I don’t care to move on with this series. I love litrpgs and the first book showed a lot of promise, but I don’t want to slog through another book where the protagonist just constantly makes bad decisions for no reason at all.

Same complaints from book 1

The MC is a super-man with a trite attempt to make him seem down to earth. The main events and battles are rushed through. The character development in book 2 was weak except for the MC which was one of the things that offset the shortcomings in book 1. Overall, I was hoping for better, but got a little worse than the same from book 1. I'll add book 3 into my wishlist for a sale, but I'm not going to spend a credit on it. The story still has a lot of potential, but the shortcomings of this author's style doesn't leave me excited to get to book 3. The narration continued to be very good with no obvious editing flubs.

Terrible lack of care.

I only read this as I bought book 1 and 2 together, and while I wasn't a fan of the first I thought I'd give this one a try hoping it was better - yet, amazingly, it is worse.

First there is the time dilation issue. In first book he set the time scale at one day is one year. Think he tried to change it in this one, but I forget if that is the case. The time dilation made no odds in first book, but makes this book IMPOSSIBLE.

In this book the MC has his brother join him in the game, though playing with VR gear, not in the game fully like the MC is. So imagine his brother logs out to sleep, has breakfast/dinner, sees his kids etc he would be out for at least 12 hours a day. By time he logs back in the MC would have been waiting for him for six months. Even logging out for an hour would have MC having to wait 365 hours.

Then there is the massive and constant contradictions that happen. Brother logs out and his avatar vanishes the first time he goes, but after that he logs out and his avatar just stands there like a shop dummy. Done in first case just so MC can mess with his avatar and draw pictures on his face. The stupidity is compounded when the brother says he saw it all. HOW?? If he logs out and takes his helmet off, how can he have seen anything his avatar saw? Never explains it, just expects you to swallow that fact.

Another occasion the MC explains his constant knowledge of a seemingly endless number of abstract facts to his brother by saying he reads a lot of books. Only for within a chapter to walk into a library and make the comment he has no interest in the books because he doesn't read and is dyslexic.

Another one he gets told how his madness works only to a few minutes later tell his brother he has no idea what things will make his madness worse.

Believe me when I say there were quite a few others. I honestly don't know how an author can let this pile of rubbish slid past them. Most will do multiple rewrites and edits, and then it would be beta read and edited by publishers etc. So I don't understand how all this just sailed on by them.

Lastly, the whole power scale in this is crazy. In book one he kills a Lich at level 9, and those are the most powerful of the undead monsters. In this he is fighting actual gods in his 20's. I assume in following books he will be fighting planets???
