I’m Ramon Mejia. I’m here to bring you the latest LitRPG news, reviews, and author interviews.  I have 6 new reviews just for you.

New Releases and Reviews:

The Azure Dragon: A Heroic Fantasy Saga (The Artar Chronicles Book 3)

Starts to lose the best parts of the story for me.

Score: 6 out of 10

Rise of the Crimson Order: A Crematoria Online LitRPG Novel

Mash of a lot of things, but the fantasy MMO detective thing felt forced to me.

Score: 6 out of 10

The Phoenix of Altria: Digital Sorcery Book 2 (A LitRPG Series)

Better opening section, but same adult humor.

Score: 7.5 out of 10

Executioner: Reign of Blood: A LitRPG Novel (Chasms of Corruption Book 2)

A decent read, but a few issues make it hard to reconnect with the story.

Score: 7.1 out of 10

Sentenced to Troll 2

Same likable MC, but less monster culture. Mostly a setup story.

Score: 7.2 out of 10

Monster [LitRPG series: The Beetle]

Monster MC. Interesting evolution system, but turns into slice of life adventure.

Score: 7.5 out of 10

Audible recently changed how they organize and give away promotional audiobook codes which has incentivized a big group of LitRPG and GameLit authors to put together a massive audiobook giveaway contest, organized by Richard Hummel.
