New Releases and Reviews:

The Heroic Villain (06:22)

Hero turns villain to save the game he loves. Good stuff.

Score: 7.6 out of 10

Dukes and Ladders: A LitRPG/Gamelit Adventure (The Good Guys Book 5)  (09:59)

Half town building, half action adventure, all good

Score: 7.6 out  of 10

Adapt (A Touch of Power Book 2) (April 12th, 2019) (12:20)

No challenges for the MC, no antagonist, and unfulfilled plot promise

Score: 6 out of 10

Edge of the Abyss (Respawn Trials Book #1) LitRPG Series  (20:30)

Another good one from Andrei Livadny

Score: 7.7 out of 10  

Raven: The Beginning - An Assassin LitRPG (World of the Veil Book 1) (24:08)

Shorter assassin LitRPG story improves by the mid mark but still misses good for me.

Score: 6 out of 10
