Lord of Creation (The Universal Struggle Book 1)


When the thrilling lands of RPGs come to life for Donovan; monsters, dungeons, experience points and leveling up, he is amazed. Never in his life could he have imagined the mysterious and exciting world that awaited him. After conquering a dungeon to rule for himself though, things get real. Stronger and stronger enemies are arising, and a messenger from the underworld brings a horrifying notice. He and his dungeon are to be brought to the underworld, where even his astonishing level is on the bottom of the totem pole.

Then, just as soon as he thinks everything is going well (or at least as well as can be for somebody living in the underworld), he loses it all. But, from the ashes, a new power burns through him. A power only the most powerful titans have even dreamed of wielding. The power of Creation. But alas, nothing is as it seems anymore. All alone in the darkest place imaginable, can he survive?

My Opinion: 317 pages, $2.99, Available on Kindle Unlimited

Overall, this is kind of a meh story. It feels like a serial story that was written without purpose. A bunch of stuff just happens. Starts with an XP grind, then some dungeon master stuff, then hell, and a hard reset, then some minor kingdom building, eventually towards the end there's an attempt a story with a villain but by then I didn't really care. Most of the novel is just stuff happening. I was never given a reason to care about the MC. The game mechanic varied sometimes being very detailed but other times intentionally vague to justify some story event.

The novel isn't bad, it is just meh without a story to follow.

Score:5 out of 10
