Hero-Slayer: A LitRPG Saga (Hero-Slayer Series Book 1)


This is the legend of the Hero-Slayer, who had sold his soul for magic most vile, who would attack heroes at their weakest and destroy everything they held dear. Rumors had it that none of those who attacked him ever lived to tell the tale. It was said that he had the power to take down thousands without lifting a finger.

Others speculated that he dwelt in a secret place filled with long-lost magic and magical creatures protected his secret lair. Stories said that if you rang a bell at the seventh hour on the seventh day, your body would never again be found for that was the hour that the Hero-Slayer walked through the dark, taking souls to feed his power.

Needless to say he was the Villain, The Boogeyman, The Big Bad. The Dragon who defeated the Knight and killed the princess. This is his story. The story in which the dark side won.

Forced to leave planet earth, Bobby enters a new world, and he journeys from wannabe villain to hero-slayer.


My Opinion: 60 pages, $2.99, Not Available on Kindle Unlimited

At 60 pages or almost $0.05 per page, this novel is too expensive for the page count. Plus the last 25% is a sample for something else, so there’s not actually even 60 pages for this story. There are also issues with the writing itself, very awkward phrasing and mixed tenses. There are RPG mechanics but they don't make sense.

The story is honestly just confusing. The earth hit the apocalypse but aliens save people, and the MC and his grandma get into a pod and for no real reason the alien world they are on has RPG game mechanics and an odd PvP challenger system?There’s attempts at world building and character development but it’s such a mixed bag nothing feels fleshed out.

Overall, just a meh story that didn’t make sense to me.

Score: 5 out of 10
