I’m Ramon Mejia. I’m here to bring you the latest LitRPG news, reviews, and author interviews.  I have 5 new reviews just for you, mostly new stuff from 1st time LitRPG authors.

New Releases and Reviews:

Your Anus is a Gas Giant (Caverns and Creatures) (12:59)

So funny, from Coopers POV. Potty humor.

Score: 7.6 out of 10 

Shade's First Rule (Divine Apostasy Book 1) (15:29)

The story has potential, but is too frustrating for me.

Score: 6 out of 10 

Sky Realms Online: Grayhold: A LitRPG Adventure (25:46)

Got bored with the slice of life adventuring.

Score: 5 out of 10 

Varnoth: The Black Blade: Book One: (A LitRPG Story) (33:47)

Author’s first novel. Slice of life story that gets dark, but has issues.

Score: 6 out of 10 

The Warped Forest: A Hundred Halls LitRPG and GameLit Novel (Gamemakers Online Book 1) (47:06)

Decent XP grind bookended by good character development.

Score: 7.1 out of 10
