Never fight alone again.
Sam continues his frightening descent into Fulton Milner's horrifying virtual reality role playing game. Now Sam must deal with powerful new enemies inside the dark castle of the fallen kingdom of Misseiji, a kingdom once known for magick but now known as a cursed deathtrap. Sam must improve his skills in order to traverse this deadly new area and combat its savage secret bosses. Not only that, but there's still the possibility of a Glitch Fiend attack at any moment. Sam must use all the resources at his disposal including Servant Contracts, weapon augmentations, stat upgrades, enhanced pyromancies, secret techniques, and NPC allies.
On the outside, game developer Alex looks for an opportunity to save everyone from Fulton Milner's mad experiment. Both Sam and Alex work desperately to survive with neither having the time to wonder just how they'll overcome such dangerous odds.
The Glitch Fiends is the followup to the sleeper LitRPG hit, Hell's Glitch. It stars Sam Nagai, a hapless gamer and artist who's just looking to make a buck. That's until he's sucked into Fulton Milner's vicious dark fantasy game. Now Sam will do anything to survive including evoking the darker side of his persona.
My Opinion: 303 pages, $3.99, Available on Kindle Unlimited
The novel starts off just where part 1 ended. There’s plenty of detailed character sheets, item descriptions, power upgrades. The main character does some training with Jin to learn new abilities. Good fight scenes. If you liked books 1 and 2, it’s more of the same and you’ll likely like this one too.
However, for me, the novels never really resonated. It might be that the novels are inspired by the Dark Souls games and that’s not a franchise that captured my heart. It could be that I never connected to the main character. For whatever reason, the novels just never did it for me.
Score: 6 out of 10.
