What could be worse that getting stuck in a virtual world? Instead of enjoying the game, I found myself trapped inside my character’s dead body. Now the only way I can save myself is by procuring the Scroll of Rebirth. The problem is, my chances of getting it are slim. I’m an undead: an outlaw with no friends, only fickle allies, and plenty of enemies. Who are only waiting for their chance to strike.
My undead hangman character has to tread a razor’s edge, with only the support of his fellow players preventing his imminent plunge into the abyss. But are they who they claim they are? In a game, there’s nothing easier than assuming another person’s identity.

Full disclosure: I received an advanced copy for review. I purchased a copy when it became available.
Apparently, this it. The translators/english publishers mentioned that this is basically the end of the series. Though there's a small short story that details the afterward, but they're not sure it will get translated. But heck, it’s a good way to go out.
I’ll admit, the story is not perfect. There are plenty of places where the story is forced into certain outcomes, the villians in the story seem like copies of each other, and though the end resolves many of the big plot points it leaves some holes too. But despite those issues, I had a good time with the story. I did. There’s lots of good action, interesting RPG power developments, and some good twists to the story. The story pace is pretty fast and through there’s a good bit of action, it’s never repetitive.
Score: 7.1 out of 10
