I’m Ramon Mejia. I’m here to bring you the latest LitRPG news, reviews, and author interviews.  I have 7 new reviews just for you.

New Releases and Reviews:

Absolute Zero (Adam Online Book #1) LitRPG Series (07:20)

Good sci-fi RPG action-adventure here. But be warned that while there are lots of story threads started here, there are relatively few resolutions.

Score: 7.6 out of 10

The Fourth Realm (The Ten Realms Book 4)  (14:25)

The story still has all the good elements I’ve enjoyed and this time lots more large scale action.

Score: 7.6 out of 10

Vindication (The Alchemic Weaponeer - Book 1)  (20:09)

It’s not bad by any means, it just didn’t hit good for me either because there weren’t any real surprises in the story.

Score: 6 out of 10

The Idle System (A LitRPG series Book 3): The Birth (26:01)

New companion, but the same Idle System leveling stuff from the previous books and there are lots of new abilities, skills, and powers that come into play and train.

Score: 7.5 out of 10

Comet Rider: A Scifi Lit-RPG Series (29:12)

A decent sci-fi action story with some spaceships. But it's NOT LitRPG.

Score: 4 out of 10

Lydia: Awakening (32:03)

A bit of a rough beginning, but improves and gets pretty good as it goes on.

Score: 7.4 out of 10

The Mayor of Noobtown: A LitRPG Adventure (37:00)

A very entertaining story that has a snarky wit, good banter, good action, and an intelligent use of gamer knowledge to exploit the systems described. Fun stuff.

Score: 7.7 out of 10
