A LitRPG Apocalypse from the perspective of a Dark Elf
The elves took everything. Following a bloodied slaughter of her whole race, and struggling to stay alive, she had no choice but to survive on her own. That was until the world changed. Her entire planet; a whole cluster was introduced to the vast universe by The System, or perhaps God. A universe filled with endless beings and civilizations that fought for power and dominance.
After the integration, Blair finds herself in a forest surrounded by unknown beasts, peril lurking, alone. Alone and with nothing but the mentality to survive, she will have to get stronger in this new unforgiving world of numbers and power.
With nothing but the capability to get stronger, her distant dreams of revenge might just become a reality.

Before we get into the review, I want to be very clear: Azrie is not my alt acc. Some people have accused Azrie of being my alt account before, and no, this isn't my alt account, alright? Got it? Good. On to the review.
Now, about the story itself, I would say it's a really fun litrpg apocalypse story following an archer dark elf. It is atypical in that it's not set on Earth, and whether or not that's a good thing is up to you to decide. For me, it's a net positive, especially considering the vengeful and slightly psychopathic protagonist.
I honestly am not the biggest fan of human protagonists that previously lived a mundane and boring life before becoming a murderhobo psychopath once they were isekai'd or the apocalypse happens. To me, since the protagonist was already a dark elf trained combatant who grew up with death and war, it doesn't really break my suspension of disbelief that she's able to thrive in the apocalypse. In fact, it only makes sense to me.
So far, the story is about the protagonist's survival and exploring and understanding the system, but it's been plenty entertaining with the small cast of characters. I personally really like the banter between
The protagonist and her AI companion. I just love snarky AIs, man.
There is still a lot of mystery abound and a lot to explore in the story, especially with how the apocalypse is handled with all the other worlds being involved. But the pacing is relatively slow, so I'm sure it'll be fully fleshed out over time. Personally, I'm a fan of slow pacing-styled stories. Although, I can see that that style may turn people off. So just be warned.
The grammar is good. I haven't spotted any mistakes so far.
Lastly, I am one of Azrie's patrons, so bear that in mind when reading this review.
Overall, I'd say it's a 5/5 throughout the board. Give it a shot.
For all it's simplicity, as beforementioned by other reviewers, I truly find this piece of fiction of a higher rank than most.
The spelling and grammar is good, even great, for the most part.
I am, however, a little cautious of how the plot will go on. The vibe of the story is pretty similar to Jake, the avaricious hunter, in its mindset and system.
The multiple perspectives seem a tiny bit forced, but in the greater scope of worldbuilding, it is acceptable for me.
If I could give the author a mechanical tip, it would be to try and stay more consistent within your system and rules. Of course that is easier said than done, but for a fantasy world and system to work, there has to be consistency. The hard number you provided in the Attribute chapter were a step in the wrong direction if you ask me.
You didn't ask me, so I'll just say, keep up the good work, I am proud of myself to have found another fun fiction on this site, and I am even more proud of the author who has poured energy and time into this work of art.
You keep on writing, and I assure you, you'll get far. I believe in you.
This storry is still short but so far it is one of the best. The elements of the LitRPG apocalypse are rather standart (combine worlds, tutorial, different races to vie for dominance), but the execution is one of the best.
This is the first story, that follows a fantastical entity that is sent to invade earth, I have read and while I asssume there have been others before it feels new and fresh.
Sadly the storry isn't entirely free of weird fantasy or LitRPG cliches, but nothing of these is unforgivable in my opinion:
I personally find it always jaring to see archers that ignore strength and right now Strength is Blairs lowest physical stat at roughly 2/3 of her next lowest.
Some form of "mental" stat that has no influence on what that atribute traditionally means and instead could just be Magic.
People being with their thoughts everywhere except focusing on the Monster charging them.
I never really know what to write on style and gramar, but I will still try:
There are effectively no mistakes and sentences that are structured to take you out of the flow, the action flows smoothly, and falling action is integrated without lingering.
The plot is a LitRPG apocalypse and I write this at chapter 9. There is some aditional conflict around the genocide, but I don't think that will matter soon. I like LitRPG apocalypses. If you do as well you will probably like this plot. If you don't you probably won't. If you are new to LitRPG apocalypses this seems like a good place to start.
We have only met one and a half characters so far, but those are very well characterized. I already feel like I know them, and they are both likable.
If you like your rash, heavily plot armored MC then this is a good story for you.
Generic litRPG elements, pretty bog standard system so I won't get into that.
The MC does have a very solid personality, that the author has managed to define well; unfortunantly I can't find them very likable a character.
This is a really entertaining story, it's packed with action and the writting never gets messy in the fights makes it really dynamic andpicturable.
The story is set in a universe where humans are just a speck of the intelligent beings existing wich is really refreshing, even more so than some of the other civilizations are lored \(^^) /
We follow a dark elf girl awakening to a battle crazy behavior and her little guide in that new world an classic but still nice little guy.
Well all that being said thanks for the work boss !
For the most part I enjoyed the story, I just can't deny that I've felt frustrated with how impulsive and rash the MC has been. That's just my own frustrations and the story and grammar/style are actually great, hence I'm only subtracting half a star.
Just hope that she soon outgrows her rahsness after more experience.
note: I've beta read the first draft of this series up to chapter 30, and I'm also a patron.
Blair is an interesting litrpg coming about as a result of multiple worlds merging. The story tells the tale of a young and somewhat naive deep dark elf whose family was taken from her in war, who finds herself in a strange environment governed by The System - an impersonal and unseen presence that maintains this trial space and seems to govern the merging itself. I like how the titular character is focused mostly on her own survival with revenge as an underlying motivation, it's a nice departure from the majority of the isekai or isekai-adjacent works I've read that always seem to have some flavor of hero or antihero for a protagonist. the side characters and antagonists aren't flat cardboard cutouts to knock down either, they're generally well fleshed out and interesting, which helped keep me immersed in Blair's world. the environment, characters, growth aspect, and fight scenes are really interesting!
Style: I found my attention drawn into scenes through the author's use of detail, the immersion is solid. switching through side character narratives helped keep the protagonist's role feeling more fresh too.
Story: it's mostly stream of consciousness, mainly the protagonist's perspective but also cycles through a number of side characters which works well to flesh them out. the ambience is immersive, and the fight scenes are particularly good - especially the one with
Grammar: it could use a little polish here and there, but I also read a first draft so some of that is to be expected.
Character: the protagonist is strong-willed if naive or even impulsive at times, and the side characters and antagonists are diverse and well defined. I feel invested in seeing what happens to them all going forward. I already mentioned it, but I like how the protagonist isn't another cookie cutter would be hero or villain, she's just trying to survive and get her revenge if she can. she's got a ton of flavor and I'm looking forward to see where it all goes for her!
bottom line: my reading background is mostly translated light novels, and from that perspective this is a solid and entertaining read that I'd recommend.
Blair is the last of her people an just wants to survive. She was minding her own buisness trying to survive in the ashes of her home when she became involved in the system invasion of earth. Like any System Apocalypse the path to power is paved with blood, yet Blair, despite having legitimate reasons, has resisted becoming a murder hobo. Will she be able to climb the path to power without becoming just as those who killed her people? Find out next time on "Blair-A LITRPG Apocalypse "
Before I preface this review, I'd like to state that this story is something that I'd give a "chef kiss," but if you're not a fan of action, it probably won't be for you. The story and characters are excellent, though the action makes it top tier — one of the focal reasons to read. However, I'll get into the other aspects as I review them.
Okay, the style, as mentioned in the title, it's first person (Mostly MC but also SC). Well, if you're wondering about the more intricate aspects, such as sentence length and pacing, this has to be Azrie's best story regarding style since the readability is pretty immersing. Being able to zone out and immerse yourself into the story is an important aspect of enjoyment. At least for me. Azrie's sentence style allows that, so good stuff in that regard.
The story is about a litRPG apocalypse. This is where I'm a little iffy because too much murder for no reason is nonsensical to me. But the author makes a great effort to flesh out the story by introducing pivotal points, be it through side characters or even the world that the story takes place. Right now, the MC is more worried about surviving the area they were placed in, and that's totally fine. Mainly because side character and main character progression are taking place, so the story will become deeper as it progresses. (Duh)
The Character is very reasonably made for the world that she's in. The reason the MC knows how to survive isn't out of sheer luck, but rather they were born for such a task in their previous life. It's reassuring to know the author cares about realism to a degree.
As for the grammar, it's very readable. Not much else to say in that regard.
So? Read it. You'll enjoy it if you're a LitRPG Apocalypse fanatic. 5/5
This is an interesting story.
sidestories / interludes are used well for giving some extra context
some difficult questions are asked but so far no easy answers are given (this is a good thing it helps people think with their own brain)
the mc plot armor is at a believeable level and no absurdly easy fortunate encounters have occered
