The Lord of Death is dead and the Abyss is in turmoil. While its most powerful denizens vie for control over Death’s seat, a young reaper named Morgana sees a golden opportunity. She hatches a plan to rise above the ranks of Death’s former servants and travels to the mortal plane in search of the perfect soul to become her accomplice. Leonardo Dante, the world’s greatest game developer, is dying tonight. As a young man he sold his soul to Death for more time to chase his dream. But as the sun sets on his life for the final time, he meets a strange teenage girl who offers him a choice; be reaped by her and join countless lost souls in the Abyss or help her bring order to Death’s domain by duping foolish mortals called gamers into selling their souls to her. Despite being conflicted by this fiendish request, Leo’s desire to finish his dream outweighs any guilty conscience, and so the pair forms a strange new partnership. Together they set out to create the ultimate gaming experience!

Top review

Okay, this novel is good. Why is that? Warning: Tiny minora spoiler ahead. Read at your own risk. Let me clarify something first in today's novels regarding this genre. Whether they are Japanese, Chinese, or original ones, they have cliches. The repeating happenings that it has becomes predictable and boring. So boring that reading the synopsis or the first chapter will make you lose interest. This one, this novel is a fresh addition because it has new gaming aspects told in a storytelling that will bait people to voluntarily go to the deepest layer of 'the abyss', LOL. Writing Quality: Storytelling factors such as the dialogue and information given in between isn't lacking or excessive. The cliffhanger is really good especially that first chapter. As per the basic requirement every author must learn, "show, not tell", the author has mastered it. It is at the level you would end up engrossed reading the story. The last thing is the fillers. Nope, there's almost no fillers or whatnot, atleast for me. Stability Of Updates: From what I observe, there's unstable updates for this one in the last couple months. But now author is uploading daily chapters. So do not worry fellow reapers. Wow, two chapters per day? With 1500-200 average words? You're a beast man. Story Development: Now, this is what I like about it. Only second to world background. Not too slow and not too fast. The pacing is excellent and far better than any novel out there that get power-ups to one punch any obstacle in the way. If there would be future face slapping events then it will be different. Overall, you wouldn't experience the ypical elements involving the gamers, people, the game master and monsters in the typical litrpg genre. Simpy because of the unique theme and setting where it all took places. Character Design: Fleshed out characters that certainly is an individual. Not some characters that simply follows the wil of their gods. Goals amd motivations, check. Personalities, flaws, addiction, and minor tidbits that makes them a person, check. The main characters arnt't some godly geniuses that knows everything one way or another and will implement everything. Tbh, I have so much to learn from the author, 😭✌ World Background: Now this is what I really liked about this one. The world building. Having some modern element helps the readers connect with the story. Especially the memes.😂 What really is the greatest thing I liked about it is the definition of the abyss, made possible dur to the death of DEATH Himself. What an irony. The embodiment of death dies? Nice. Anyways, I hope this small review will help new readers. Also, check my book, Magic In The Galactic Era.

Time for the author's shameless self-plugging! 😅 Hi, I'm G.D. Cruz, human scribe of the Fayne (Foolhardies), and now, keeper of stories for the Abyss too. Although my synopsis says it all, I do want to add one tiny little detail... this isn't your typical Lit-RPG story. In fact, I believe you'll agree with me afte you finish reading chapter one. Damn, that Morgana is brutal. My lead, Leo, is every boy's dream... a successful game designer who builds the best games one could play... but then you get a glim**e of his sad tale at the beginning and you may not want to follow in his footste**. All in all, GmofS was a very fun work to write and I barely felt the time pass as I finished a chapter. So I hope to continue it for a long time to come. Cheers! And enjoy! 😁

I'm not used to writing reviews, but I'm going to do it here because I really like this story. First of all, the author is experienced, he has already written something good and it shows, the descriptions are well done and the characters have well defined personalities. Then, the world is interesting, a large number of classes seem to be predicted and we can expect great battles against powerful monsters or nasty players. Finally, the update rate, at the beginning I had some reservations, but the author promised to publish more chapter. In short, it is a good novel, I advise you.

This note will be removed once I edit out the fourth wall breaking. ---------- Under a planned twist of fate, Aurus was struck by a bolt of lightning, forcing him to realize that he would not be able to play the game he dedicated a lot of his time to ever again. Fortunately, a goddess took pity on his miserable fate, giving him the choice to live out his life as if it was the game he played, plus a few more bonuses on top of that. Does Aurus accept the choice? Of course he does! And with that, Aurus is reincarnated as…a stick? Thankfully, using the bonuses he obtained from the goddess, Aurus eventually evolves into…a bigger stick? Er…witness the adventures of Aurus on his path to becoming stronger!

Denizens of the 7 hells, respect me. Servants of the 11 heavens, know fear. Guild Invictus, know the suffering of training so you can wrest victory from the jaws of those who dare doubt you. This is a story about a snake named Tycondrius waking up in a fantasy world of swords and sorcery. There is action, violence, unapologetic murder, and arrogant displays of power. There is an emphasis on combat growth as well as psychological growth on more than a few members of Guild Invictus. There is camaraderie and also the inevitable comedic dialogue amongst manly men. There are even elements of romance and Tycon running away from terrifying, powerful women. (Did you know most female snakes eat their partners after mating?) Give this book a read.

"I also Heroes to fight against, so let's make those as well!" "Hmmmm...I like System novels, let's give a Hero a Gamer system!"

When a mysterious silver spaceship, popping out from nowhere, delivered to each Earthling a bracelet containing an AI introducing itself as the Oracle, their destiny changed.

***3 CHAPTERS EVERY DAY 12:00 PM (MST-Arizona)*** "Bowzer, we'll stop here for the night." "But I can keep going!" Bowzer insisted. 'Don't we need to--" "Bowzer, we'll need our rest before we reach the Fissured Mountains. You've never been there, so I'll tell you about my past experiences there." "Hey, Jack, how come you've been everywhere but you're so low-leveled? Is it because you were an ancient hero before?" Bowzer tilted his head, anxious for an answer. "Yeah, that's why. I thought you knew that already?" "I do. But weren't you also really high-leveled back then? Why aren't you that high-leveled like before?" Jack pondered the question for a moment till he smiled. "I don't know." ----- As an avid player of the world's largest MMORPG, Jack was dubbed the "Achievement Junkie" by fellow players. After completing all possible achievements he earned an unlikely quest. The quest offered a chance to escape reality and, just as it said, Jack was pulled into another world the moment he accepted it. Now living in Kartonia, the world he had fallen in love with in-game, Jack must start from lv. 1 with a brand new class and subclass he had never seen before. And though his gamer knowledge is still useful, he quickly discovers that the current time in Kartonia is over 1000 years after anything he had witnessed in-game. Armed with what the locals call ancient knowledge, Jack must work to level up and uncover the secrets of the apocalyptic Godly War that he missed and keep it from happening again. It's a journey of a know-it-all solo gamer who discovers how to form relationships and is encouraged by his new system to form a party in order to grow. With Bowzer, his Hell-flame Fox companion, and so many more additions, Jack must grow to rival the two warring pantheons with the support of the neutral pantheon. Can he achieve such a feat?

As blood rushed up his throat and leaked between his teeth, his sinister appearance aggravated to the point that he looked like demon. After his maniacal laugh, his punctured lungs finally gave out, causing his whole body to collapse on the ground, dyeing it a scarlet shade. His mind went blank, while his consciousness started leaving his battered body. *** After what appeared to be a few minutes, he suddenly woke up. He was startled at first, but realized that he had indeed died. He had no body and everything around him was black, without an ounce of life. It was an absolute void.

Han Jing was the worst kind of gamer. He was the filthy casual, a mobile gamer. Still you couldn't blame him for beta-testing Races: Online. Although the events that happened afterwards was a blur. He ended up in server sixty-nine, got attacked by a bully Demon Lord and made an alliance with a narcissistic Wood Elf but still ended up teased and taunted by the all-powerful Moderator! On top of that, they all acted like they were all real?! . . . Somehow his life seemed to be an endless series of bad luck and bad choices. He's only managed to take odd jobs, he's still living with his parents and he won't even tackle about his non-existent romantic relationships. Life couldn't be any more great. Sarcasm to be noted. As he tries to find another job, he instead receives an opportunity to 'beta-test' this new game... which turns out to be more real than he could ever imagine! Still, it was a chance for him to live a life completely different from his own, couldn't he? . . . The story is mostly set in 'Virtual World' but also tackles his real life struggles. And with his personality, there's actually a lot of them xD . . . Discord Distraction! https://discord.gg/NNU4emZ Coffee for Sleepy Author: https://ko-fi.com/cheldv Image not mine.

In the year 3650, humanity has conquered the universe, only to find out that they were the only intelligent species in existence. With the limit technology had reached, they yearned for more. More convenience and more life, so they started the project known as B.S. which was the process of breaking through the shackles that limited us while it also protected us from outside dangers. Right after 100 years, after the project B.S. had successfully been completed, monsters of terrifying strength intruded in their universe, resulting in a war that continued for a thousand years. After facing these monsters, something seemed to awaken within their body as they unlocked supernatural powers by absorbing the magical stone inside the monster's body. Dignity might have been important in the mortal world, but within this era where supernatural reign supreme, would dignity be worth something?

Ephraim, or as called by his colleagues, Raim, is an archeologist. Upon his commencement, he was stationed with a task force consisting of a researcher, a biologist, a doctor, and a former sergeant-in-arms; their team entrusted with a duty to examine the desolated LAB of an abandoned former space station: ANDROMEDA. As a man of science, he knew what his weakness was: curiosity. Upon entering the premises of ANDROMEDA, Raim discovers that succumbing to his desires would prove fatal one day. And that day has come. By the end of the darkness of the seemingly isolated laboratory was not obscurity filled with dust and desolation—but a tunnel leading to another realm of knowledge. A pathway to another dimension. No . . . the -pathway- to another world. The entrance to a completely different time where magic, knights, kingdom, monsters, and battles reigned supreme; Now Ephraim and his task force must utilize their existing knowledge and cultivate their given power to survive onslaughts and drive the kingdoms of another world to prosperity.

Time for the author's shameless self-plugging! 😅 Hi, I'm G.D. Cruz, human scribe of the Fayne (Foolhardies), and now, keeper of stories for the Abyss too. Although my synopsis says it all, I do want to add one tiny little detail... this isn't your typical Lit-RPG story. In fact, I believe you'll agree with me afte you finish reading chapter one. Damn, that Morgana is brutal. My lead, Leo, is every boy's dream... a successful game designer who builds the best games one could play... but then you get a glim**e of his sad tale at the beginning and you may not want to follow in his footste**. All in all, GmofS was a very fun work to write and I barely felt the time pass as I finished a chapter. So I hope to continue it for a long time to come. Cheers! And enjoy! 😁

I'm not used to writing reviews, but I'm going to do it here because I really like this story. First of all, the author is experienced, he has already written something good and it shows, the descriptions are well done and the characters have well defined personalities. Then, the world is interesting, a large number of classes seem to be predicted and we can expect great battles against powerful monsters or nasty players. Finally, the update rate, at the beginning I had some reservations, but the author promised to publish more chapter. In short, it is a good novel, I advise you.

Okay, this novel is good. Why is that? Warning: Tiny minora spoiler ahead. Read at your own risk. Let me clarify something first in today's novels regarding this genre. Whether they are Japanese, Chinese, or original ones, they have cliches. The repeating happenings that it has becomes predictable and boring. So boring that reading the synopsis or the first chapter will make you lose interest. This one, this novel is a fresh addition because it has new gaming aspects told in a storytelling that will bait people to voluntarily go to the deepest layer of 'the abyss', LOL. Writing Quality: Storytelling factors such as the dialogue and information given in between isn't lacking or excessive. The cliffhanger is really good especially that first chapter. As per the basic requirement every author must learn, "show, not tell", the author has mastered it. It is at the level you would end up engrossed reading the story. The last thing is the fillers. Nope, there's almost no fillers or whatnot, atleast for me. Stability Of Updates: From what I observe, there's unstable updates for this one in the last couple months. But now author is uploading daily chapters. So do not worry fellow reapers. Wow, two chapters per day? With 1500-200 average words? You're a beast man. Story Development: Now, this is what I like about it. Only second to world background. Not too slow and not too fast. The pacing is excellent and far better than any novel out there that get power-ups to one punch any obstacle in the way. If there would be future face slapping events then it will be different. Overall, you wouldn't experience the ypical elements involving the gamers, people, the game master and monsters in the typical litrpg genre. Simpy because of the unique theme and setting where it all took places. Character Design: Fleshed out characters that certainly is an individual. Not some characters that simply follows the wil of their gods. Goals amd motivations, check. Personalities, flaws, addiction, and minor tidbits that makes them a person, check. The main characters arnt't some godly geniuses that knows everything one way or another and will implement everything. Tbh, I have so much to learn from the author, 😭✌ World Background: Now this is what I really liked about this one. The world building. Having some modern element helps the readers connect with the story. Especially the memes.😂 What really is the greatest thing I liked about it is the definition of the abyss, made possible dur to the death of DEATH Himself. What an irony. The embodiment of death dies? Nice. Anyways, I hope this small review will help new readers. Also, check my book, Magic In The Galactic Era.

So it’s that time again I have been force- ahem persuaded to once again drag myself out of my cave and review a story. I would like to say this is based on my opinion so take what I say with a grain of salt. Writing quality- for me five stars it’s clean I didn’t notice any errors that hampered my reading and no spelling mistakes were particularly noticed. Stability of updates- again five stars i would give it more if I could since this is the authors second novel which he is updating with his first. Story development- I gave this category four stars this is mostly due to lack of chapters since ideas differ vastly from execution though I will fully admit I like the presented idea of the novel and it’s current progression hence the four stars. Character design- for me it’s five stars I will say I’m not picky. I don’t even need a design for characters to work in my head, but I know some people are rather particular with getting an image so I encourage you to read it and see if it works for you or not. World building- for this I gave it four stars like story development there just isn’t enough for me to say it is amazing though it is brilliantly mysterious and so far consistent though this might change in the future though I hope it doesn’t. Now with Webnovels categories out of the way it’s time for my thoughts and opinions that didn’t seem to fit in any of them. First whilst I’ve said some very nice things about this novel there are some things that bugs me indefinitely that I can’t gloss over like some other choices. The major gripe I have and that’s the author tells a lot to the readers there is little to no inferring of character traits and characteristics of the cast since it’s told straight up with out any subtly. Which I found personally annoying especially when it’s repeated. Though it doesn’t detract from the story. I also so understand that it could just be a style choice and I’m just not clicking with it particularly. Another thing that is related to the a fore mentioned point is that we are told about character moments and that could be fun and show off the characters of Leo and Morganna especially they get shoved to the side with a couple lines of exposition whilst I suspect that this is due to the author wanting a certain pacing of the novel it still feels like a waste of potential of exploring the characters. Right onto something else that I have a slight distaste for character bipolar disorder whilst a lot of the characters are great they are fun to read about as they explore the new world. There is one character that I don’t sit well with and that’s the main character Leo himself aside from the authors Infamous brand of naming (curse you Cruz) the thing i am against is how he shifts seemingly out of nowhere at first he’s introduced as a self proclaimed bastard of a person he isn’t Voldemort evil but he happily sells away the souls of gamers for the chance of resurrection. The only problem I have with this is that he seems to care too much by the people that jump into his game. There isn’t an arc where he learns the benefits of being nice to people he just seems to suddenly care about the players which In my eyes doesn’t fit his established character of being unscrupulous to achieve his dream. I don’t know maybe it’s just me. In conclusion it’s a very fresh story exploring something mystical with a very fun cast of characters. It’s something I would recommend if you enjoy a more mysterious style with a system that is different to the usual whilst I am at odds with something’s in this novel it doesn’t detract from an entertaining read plus my name makes a cameo so there’s that. Now hopefully the author will remove the gun from my head. Pretty please.

I am looking forward to GD's new novel. The author is one of the best authors I know, so readers you won't be disappointed when it comes to writing style and grammar. I look forward to the partnership between Leo and Morgana. Not sure if I should wish for Morgana's success but definitely look forward to how Leo gets himself out of death.

I have been following GD_Cruz since his first novel: The Foolhardies. That one was really good so I know this one will be good too. With only 1 chapter, I am already liking the ML. He is relatable to me as we all want to chase our dreams and not die. Right. Morgana is interesting too but why is she just a girl while ML is already a man. No romance? Excited to find out. Thanks for this author. I am happy to read more!!!

The writing style is amazing. English is perfect for me. This is my first time following a gaming novel, but I know it will be good because the author's other novel is also very interesting. This author writes very well action scenes and gives you a good picture of the world through his words. I highly recommend this to everyone!

You can really appreciate every character and how they live because they there own emotions and characteristics of there own.

Why did you want to update this story again. People will soon forget most of the character in the novel if you don't update it on time. Please try to create time if you don't have it again to post maybe once in a week or in three three days
