A Virus Life For Me

by tenqui

Original COMPLETED Action Adventure Comedy Fantasy Magic Non-Human lead Reincarnation

Poor Mark just cannot catch a break.  First he dies saving another person and is summoned in front of the "Overbeing".  The "Overbeing" gives Mark choices for his next reincarnation due to his selfless act.  However, all is not as it seems.  Just before being sent off to experience his next life as an evolver Mark overhears another person talking to the "Overbeing".  It seems Mark was somehow a threat to the "Overbeing" and was eliminated and sent on his way before he could cause problems.  Now that Mark knows what happens he vows to attain enough power to overcome the "Overbeing" and thus fulfill what he was eliminated for in the first place.  However, to do that he must master his evolver abilities and make it through a new world where magic and monsters are real.

Man reincarnates into a simple virus.  Must figure out how to evolve into more dangerous and significant things.  Hijinks, hilarity, and hopefully action occur along the way.

Great First 50 chapters

This story has a really good start, however around 2/3rds of the way through time-skips start to rush the end fast, but with only 495 pages I guess part of that I should have seen coming.

Paused to switch devices at chapter 55 and didn't realize there was only 2 chapters left after that, to be fair the author is providing a ROUGH draft of sorts for free, and is going to sell a revised version with some of these issues fixed at a later point on Amazon. 


Honestly though, we get to read this for free, and it was a very enjoyable read with some interesting takes for a LIT-RPG, wish we saw some more of the weapon based combat with the 

Spoiler: Spoiler

But honestly, the interpretation of magic and just how someone might auctually level up with things was pretty spot on, and really the only regret is that the ending was rushed, and could have really used 1 more chapter of epilogue or something to not leave us craving more.

Really disappointing.

Very dissapointing. Started off wonderful but about midway through he stopped caring about improving and just wanted to rush finish it, over all the ending was complete garbage and you shouldn't read this if you don't want to be dissapointed.

And the whole unique this about being a virus was completley forgotten about after a few chapters, so if you planned on staying around for that, don't bother.

i am enjoying this new story as much as I did the previous one and look forward to seeing where it goes.

I'm a big fan of LitRPG ! (even if the tag is missing...)
I've seen all sort of non-human MC and i'm bored of goblins, dungoens and slimes.
But a virus in a fantasy world ? The concept is really enticing me.

Its a bit too early to judge but i want this story to flourish and encourage the author to keep going with it to see the end product, so i will give it 5 stars for now and give the score it deserves when it will reach a decent number of chapters to rate it.

Good luck.

I just want to say that I love this story. I did feel as though some parts were forced to show how cool the MC is.

Spoiler: Spoiler

 But all of that doesn't even hold the candle to the dialogue. It's so forced and bland that I usually just skip it.

So, let me get this straight. this guy can become anyone he wants, and he chooses to become a bug? ruined the story for me. i gave up once i realized he is going to choose to stay a bug for awhile . too bad could of been an awesome book if he would of chosen a elf or human.

The story was great all around last chapter was both best and worst in their own way. But love it all the same. Other than few grammatical errors (but really who cares I could understand and got what was being said enough said) story was amazing this is my second microscopic protag story and I love them they are different so much possibility and hilarious monologing or even mass destruction and chaos.

i liked the story... 

but the way it ended just felt wrong. like it was april fools joke or if it was going to continue... perhaps the author was fed up with the story and wanted to end it sooner than later? 

I dunno...
