Hello there 👋
( be aware this review contain some slight spoiler but no major )
Okay so normally, I don’t write review very often, it’s my first to be exact
Why could you expect from this book ?
World backgroung :
-Your typical western fantasy world with goblin, dwarfs, elves, but with many different races in the same species ( moon elves, sun elves, wood elves... ) Also the map is massive with tons of empire containig even more kingdom, at a point I loose myself sometimes. The lore of the world has not been fully explored but it will come in time...
Character development :
-First our MC is one of the most human like I’ve ever read, he has anger, embarrassment and all the emotions which define who we are. He is also a lamba human, not some son of mafia gang and all. He will passe several ordeals which will make him mature and affirm his will as well as his goal. He is a 19 man, little bit introvert and clueless in relationships but definitely not your typical nerd who is more dense than mercury. He will open more to others with the game and even through there is no romance until now, there is one main ship which is only waiting to sail.
Story development :
-*Spoiler* Our MC arrive in a world where a beast tide is about to rase every empire, estimed in the next couple of years if not months, so it’s a rush to becoming strong with a player community completely disorganised. * End of Spoiler*
Character design :
-There are several others side characters well made, they didn’t feel bland like i’ve seen in some other novel. *Spoiler* Some will die, some will lives, and the despair of the MC will be fully felt.* End of Spoiler*
Plot armour :
( what i’m considering plot armour is heaven sent opportunity, like he has nothing to do.
Because he will have oppotunity but at a cost he is not willing to shoulder if he was to have a redo)
-There is little to no plot armor in this story, the first one will be he met a powerful guy ( at the start ) but this guy will train him like a normal soldier, not like a family heirloom and giving him all the secret techniques he don’t even has. The guy is powerful but only in the city he is.
Also the path of the MC will not be a smooth one *Spoiler* , he will choose a very difficult race which magic is blocked so he will experiment many way to unseal it, also he will use every advantage his race talent give him, so if you kinda like jack of all trades it’s for you.
Also regarding how he can use magic, he will not have the final solution from the beginning, he will experiment many different way, some wrong, some half-wrong and he is still not accustomed to his final form
Also with these experiment, he will become quite special, not overpowered but he has the potential to be* End of spoiler*.
-The pacing of the novel may be boring for some people, it’s a day to day pacing with IRL elements ( not massive but good enough to understand he is not only playing).
Also,he will not become OP in tens of chapter. I’m currently at chapter 196 and he is still at the bottom of the barrel, just slightly stonger than normal player and normal soldier.
Also the strength mesurement can be quit confusing for beast and human alike:
There is your typical level which you gain by killing ennmies and it give you stat.
There is also the job (like swordsman and magician) wich are in Tier ( from 1 to 10, each more difficult to pass with a qualitative change at Tier 5) it also give stats
And beast have an other factor( player also has it if they choose a difficult race, powerful advantage but the sytem give no help ), the strength of their body :
normal animal->magical beast->demonic beast->bloodline beast->ancient beast-> mythical beast
So you have to understand strength is like : body strength*job*level
with each less important tha the other : body strength>job>level
for example a human tier 7 mage level 50 will be completely destroy by a mythical beast Tier 4 level 30 ( also beast don’t have job just tier) ( maybe not but i’m giving an example )
And finnaly the biggest problem this novel has for me is.....
NOT ENOUGH CHAPTERS 🤬😡
(Even through the chapter are really lenghty)
