 Derrick is no ones hero.  He is barely dealing with his mundane life when all of humanity is forced to confront the extraordinary. Overnight, all across the world, mysterious machines appear. They offer people the chance to purchase almost anything they can think of. Weapons, medicine and even super human abilities are offered, seemingly for free.

But following these machines, come the Scourges. The most dangerous creatures, diseases and machines that infest the universe. Ever growing and battling, these empires of horror and hunger will overhelm and devour the Earth and its inhabitants. Unless Derrick and humanity can stand against all the horrors that battle between the stars.

litrpg whitout the bad part

contrary to most litrpg this story does'nt focus on the stat themself more on the world building, the mc have some power but he isn't the ultimate op so if you want a good little time waster it's a good story for that

Don't be discoureged by low amount of chapters

As I said in title you should really consider reading this one because it is amazing honestly. Also chapters are quite long so it makes for a longer read one might expect. I really like world building and the author built a unique apocalypse universe where system battles with aliens. Characters so far seem to be a bit one dimensional but it does not impact the story that progresses nicely and is both engaging and entertaining. Did I mention that there are no grammar problems? There aren't and that is a relief because i would't be writing this review or read at all othervise. All in all I would recommend this story to anyone on this site.

An oppressive apocalypse

Let’s get the bad news out of the way first. There are minor grammatical errors, the main character gives speeches that are a little too edgy, and there aren’t that many chapters out.

All that being said I really enjoyed this.

It reminds me of Oxygen Leech in a way. Humanity survives by the skin of their teeth and claws their way out of despair to survive.

The characters are engaging and mostly act like real people. The Users acting as an empowered militia is a fun idea that is actually executed really well. Having three “branches” that support each other makes sense and creates a world where not everyone has to be a fighter.

The “Scourges” are alien forces that are so effective and deadly that entire galaxies fall to them. Having these foreign superpowers actually interact with each other and fight is super interesting as they start out small but grow exponentially more dangerous in unique ways.

By combining action that doesn’t rely on numbers with interesting and engaging alien archetypes Mirrored has created a world I’m eager to read more about.

EPIC!!! I love the style and pacing. the character are also realistic and pragmatic and i honestly find it endearing, hope to see it become a widely recognized fiction. It fits the bill if you are also fan of the legend of Randidly ghosthound

LITRPG Meets Zombie Apocalypse

Great start, cant wait to see where it goes. English is very good few if any grammar issues. Nice character building for main and side characters.

An explanation for Status

A seemingly well thought out story of a Status System fighting against nanotech civilizations that cross interstellar space with the smallest amount of material possible to take over inhabited planets.

Best apocalyptic LitRPG in my opinion

Of all the post-apocalyptic LitRPGs I've read, this is definatly the best. I've read System Apocalypse and RedMage/Advent, this is def better - better worldbuilding, better pacing, it's great. A+
