I greatly enjoyed this novel! A cool summer camp setting with sprinkling of demon monsters and traumitized children--a perfect story, really.
I will note that the action does not come fast. If you're one of those people who want the MC to jump into things right away, you're going to be disappointed. I'd say to give the story a chance anyway. The author does foreshadowing just right. Oddities here and there that clue you in that something isn't right. And once it gets going, it gets going. It might not be litRPG, but it's plenty fun.
The author has done right by their characters. The first 8 chapters were a really good introduction for them; we get a feel for their personality, how they interact with the world around them. Even the side cast gets some decent characterization, although some are more developed than others. I'll have to warn you, aside from the main cast (Jeremy, Allison, Natalie, and Brian), none of the characters are safe! Don't get too attached because you never know what'll happen.
Some of the chapters can be a little dialogue heavy at moments and it needs a bit of a touch-up, but otherwise, reading characters interact isn't too bad. There are a few grammar errors here and there but nothing egregious (yay for my editor brain!)
I would definitely recommend that you give this story a try! I'm honestly really glad the author came off of hiatus because reading this was a treat! I'm excited to see what nightmares are getting cooked up.
