Tome of Stealth is written by the author of Cold Steel Dig. This novel a LitRPG fantasy adventure with action, romance, a different kind of prison break and a heist. It is NOT a harem story.

Grace has a no good con-man uncle that always leaves her in charge of actually paying for their lodgings and food. This forces her to come up with creative ways in making up for what she can’t earn from her waitressing job, like playing games online and selling fat loot for real cash. The day before she turns eighteen and frees herself from her uncle, the Passivity Precept takes over the world, and snuffs out all brutality, leaving only its MMO-like violence simulator. Knowing how much she can make from an MMO, Grace enters the sim and discovers that it's more than just a game. Somewhere in the violence simulator are the answers to who started the fire that killed her father, making her life hell for the past five years.

For far too long, Lore has been stuck in the simulator as the Ravenborn clan’s free-roaming prisoner. They’ve held a grudge against his clan and have taken their hatred out on him. Having planned his escape for over three years. He has everything ready, but he needs a specific artifact from the Rogues Guild. 

Will Grace find her answers? Will Lore gain his freedom? Can these two unlikely people, both alien to each other, find common ground and work together?

Tome of Stealth is worth following

There are lots of creative departures in this fast-paced tale. As I write this, there are only five chapters currently posted, so it's early days yet—But, this is a story worth adding to your 'read-me' stack Now, so you don't lose track of it later.
I enjoyed the brisk pace of the opening—which gets us into the world-space where the GameLit aspects come to the fore. The events occurring IRL are interesting as well, and I hope more is revealed about the MC's life earth-side in coming chapters.
The author is deft at communicating a lot of depth with very few brushstrokes.
I do hope this one fulfills it's early promise and makes it all the way to publication—so I can buy the ebook—so the author will write more.
There are very few errors in spelling or grammar—so we are spared that annoyance. My only complaint is I've finished the chapters available, and want more!
I really like this writer's voice (or style, if you prefer) and I hope you will too.

Yeah nice story. Only thing that really ticks me off so far is the way damages are dealt. I mean come on... cutting an ear off is 25 damages and slicing a throat is 9 damages...

Characters and the story seem fine so far, but the story isn't long enough to really judge that. I usually really like virtual reality novels which have some focus on the real world.

Really good style and grammar, no problem understanding what is happening, good description during the action scenes.

Another good point of your story is these little texts before a chapter indirectly giving information about the system. These are well done and actually interesting.

Well that's all i can think about right now. Thanks for writing this story, it is enjoyable.
