Publisher's Summary

Your parents are getting divorced. Now, once you turn 16, you'll be doomed to a pitiful existence on the lowest rungs of society. The neighbor girl got plastic surgery for your sake and is levelling fast to impress you. A Sleeping God gave you its power, but now demands absolute loyalty and obedience, even in real life. Something called the Destroying Plague wants its Emissary to infect everyone alive and, as luck would have it, that Emissary is you! But the city sees you as its salvation, not a cause of great suffering...

Scyth aka Alex is a potential Class-A threat to the whole world of Disgardium. That's how the system classifies imba players with an unfair advantage.

However, it is hard to threaten the world while you're stuck levelling up in noob town. It's even harder when all the preventer clans are on the verge of announcing a hunt for you and even your best friends can't be trusted, all while your two patron gods tear you apart from the inside. And now, to make matters worse, your biggest enemy has just become a threat as well.

One of the worst books I had the misfortune of rea

This book is an atrocity.
Worst Mary Sue I've ever encountered, mc just gets bonuses every turn for no effort. No real danger throughout the whole book. They entered a dungeon in a higher level and he literally said; don't worry about it, I'll just one shot everything. And guess what, he was right. This was one big wish fulfillment journey, and a poorly written one at that.
Additionally if you're writing a book about 15 years old don't sexualise it!
I don't want to hear about a small kid's curves you pedo!

Good, rushed ending.

Overall it was nice listening to. Ending is a bit rushed. Tournament could have been more detailed. As it is it looks highly suspicious an improbable to go from nobody to champion. Eve seems like a disposable character.

Not bad, not awful...just wish it got to the point

I felt like the author wanted to draw the story out before the MC left the sandbox. Many of the in-game events didn't seem to hold as much impact on the character as the first book. While there was MC growth, I felt the battles were becoming a bit too much superman and not enough intelligent batman.

There is a lot more RL teen angst than the first book...and it felt forced.

I do find the storyline interesting and although this wasn't as good as the first book, I will get the third in the series.

Great storytelling

So many GameLit novels lose track of storytelling in their venture to stay true to a gaming feel. This series keeps the story interesting and fun.

decent

pretty stereotypical of an overpowered mc. People befriend him to make use of his powerful status. meanwhile old friends get ignored and basically become non friends anymore. Eve is really naive and falls for the fake chivalry of her New Boyfriend

fantastic book but.....

First off I love the game world he has created. However some of the real world problems feel unneccesary with all of the troubles and drama that can happen in the game world.

I do understand why but as a gamer and lover of rpg and mmo I find myself disappointed with some of the books in the litmmo genre.

I am screaming at the book that you don't need this added personal drama or world ending event for this game.

That being said I get it with this character just not such a strong focus on so much real world drama.
