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:

Scamps & Scoundrels: A LitRPG/Gamelit Adventure (The Bad Guys Book 1)

Enjoy the author’s writing but this one just barely missed for me.

Score: 6 out of 10

Street Cultivation

Not as good as New Game Minus for me, but nice if you like cultivation stories.

Score: 7.1 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2z4pZ1p 

The World's Strongest Wizard Becomes Manaless: A Fantasy LitRPG Series (Volume One) 

Reads a lot like a children’s story with a simplistic setup and one real point of conflict.

Score: 5 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2Z3yunF 

Forever Online, ep 1: Uploaded (Forever Online LitRPG saga)

Start of a short story series. Too much setup and not much else. Got bored. 

Score: 5 out of 10

Olympus Online: Book One: Hero

Greek themed. The stats don’t matter but I enjoyed the slice of life action.

Score: 7.2 out of 10 

https://amzn.to/2HjL7oC 

The Forsaken God: The Realms Book Five: (An Epic LitRPG Series) 

The beginning of a new arc in the series. Smaller story, but still good.

Score: 7.3 out of 10

James Hunter and Dakota Krout are doing a giveaway contest to help promote their co-authored book Bibliomancer, which will not be on Kindle Unlimited but instead get a wide release on multiple platforms. They have a goal to get best seller status on The New York Times and USA Today, but to do that they have to go wide. To help get them to that goal, they’re doing the contest giving away t-shirts, signed books, and audiobooks. Go check out the contest and enter by pre-ordering through the link they give there.
