Original ONGOING Action Adventure Fantasy GameLit LitRPG Male Lead Martial Arts Strong Lead Virtual Reality

  When a 21-year-old convicted murderer is given a second chance, just how will he put his legendary real-life skills to use in a new world? In a virtual world? How will he find a path of action in a place where magic is commonplace, and where bloodshed reigns?

  Yi Qiang, a professional sniper at the top of the mercenary world, completed his one and only life goal at 21. Trouble was, that goal got him into jail. However, he was given another chance to hone his skills and put them to use when a mysterious suited man called Mr. Yang approaches him with an offer. An offer of a gateway into worlds yet unknown and into a place chock-filled with the only thing that gave him life. A gateway into Ascend.

Well written, but Marty Stu to the max

Reviewed at: Chapter Twenty-Two: Bounty

Basically what the title says. Grammar, story structure, and the gamelit elements are all on point though. The author is putting a good amount of thought and work into the skills and the math behind them. It's not bad, but the MC is so stereotypical that it hurts. He's a loner, he's a giant badass, blah, blah, etc.

I was originally going to go with a 3-star, but I think 3.5 is more appropriate. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the writing or the premise, but it's been done before by many other authors.

tl;dr: Not my cup of tea, but it might be yours. If you're curious I'd say it's worth giving the story a shot but don't expect anything new.

  • Overall Score

Contrary to other reviews, I believe the character is relatively unique for the genre, and is a very fun and good fit for the book.

Yi Qiang’s backstory is not one I’ve seen before after years enjoying the genre. He’s really not overly OP either, as it is obvious he has a really long way to go and he learns from his multiple mistakes and defeats along the way. 

The world builing is done nicely, and the game mechanics, while not anything ground breaking, still manage to prove interesting and sensible.

All in all, its a well written litrpg novel with a great MC I would recommend to any reader.


  • Overall Score

It's a damn good RPG so far. Very interesting backstories to "world" and to MC.

I disagree with recent review re OPness. The MC is definitely not OP compared to several of the NPCs he is dealing with in recent chapters. He is a min-maxed build and an unlocked race as well, but not "broad spectrum" OP. The MC has a curious back story so is able to adopt an optimal game play style for his unusual build. I have never equated cunning play style and a min max build with OP (as he can be beaten easily if makes a wrong choice in play). Most non-gamer reviewers of RPG lit don't seem to know the difference.

Anyway a great read so far, and the MC has acquired a partner so plenty of scope for interaction and story building.

  • Overall Score

No actual story to be found

Reviewed at: Chapter Sixteen: Request

The MC is op and that is all the story is.
There is not character development or actual skill gain, because the MC goes full Saitama and wrecks everything.

Since the super op MC starts in a video game, the game start is simply copied from Moonlight Sculptor (if that novel even started the trope) and he trains in the local noob training facilities until his stats are monstrous, he is so s uper OP, even the game trainers realize they cannot teach him (lul).

The writing feels disconnected. There is no actual story we follow, here. No progression of a chracter through a fantasy game world. Because that would require challanges to overcome, and if there are no challenges because the MC is so OP it hurts, what is there to tell about?

tl;dr: Badly written OP MC novel, don't bother.

  • Overall Score

Just look at the authors name, how can you not love this story when it's written by someone who loves to read?!

Common trope for a RRL fiction, but the MC is different from your normal generic white male for once.

Give this one a go folks, I'm sure you'll enjoy it :)
