I’m Ramon Mejia. I’m here to bring you the latest LitRPG news, reviews, and author interviews. I have 9 new LitRPG reviews just for you.
New Releases and Reviews:
Dungeon Desolation (Divine Dungeon book 4) (06:14)
The story is filled with punny humor, adventure, cultivation, and some pretty awesome battles.
Score: 7.8 out of 10
Dark Elf Chronicles Book Two: Survivors (10:06)
There are lots of new characters in both the IRL and game storyline, lots of adventures, and even a bit of sadness.
Score: 7.5 out of 10
Beginnings (Peaks of Power Book 1) (13:17)
Overall, while there were some marked improvements made to the story from early drafts, it still has pacing and storytelling problems.
Score: 6 out of 10
Monster Core (28:37)
Overall, the story has good action and dungeon creation.
Score: 7.2 out of 10
Warlock: Reign of Blood: A LitRPG Novel (33:14)
Overall, it is a pretty decent action adventure story with some good storytelling.
Score: 7.4 out of 10
ZOMBIE SLAYER!!: A LitRPG Apocalypse (36:44)
It’s basically more of an XP grind than a proper tense zombie apocalypse story.
Score: 5 out of 10
Necromancer System: A Dark Fantasy LitRPG (Book 1) (39:00)
Dark and brutal story, but it was the rape scenes that made me dislike it.
Score: 4 out of 10
BASE Status: Online: An Unlikely Hero's LitRPG Journey (44:42)
As a cyber thriller, this isn’t bad. As LitRPG, it’s not good since the RPG game stuff doesn’t matter to the story.
Score: 4 out of 10
Murderworld: A LITRPG Novel (50:50)
There is a cyberpunk competitive fighting game in the story but there are absolutely no RPG mechanics anywhere.
Score: 4 out of 10
This week Blaise Corvin shared some cover art for his super secret collaborative project he’s been working on with William D. Arand. No details on what the project is about, but Blaise did write that it will be launched early December.
Kevin McLaughlin, author of the LitRPG series Valhalla Online and over 40 other novels, was interviewed about his book on writing called on “You Must Write”. It’s an interesting interview with some good advice about being a professional writer.
The Land - Predators (Chaos Seeds Book 7) has been nominated in the category for Best Fantasy novel of 2018 on Good Reads. The novel is going up against some pretty big names and if you want to vote we have a link directly there.
