Original HIATUS Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Male Lead Martial Arts Non-Human lead Strategy Virtual Reality

Would you be prepared to work for free? How would you like to bust your hump for a large corporation 60-plus hours a week without a wage or a single day off for the vague promise of some mysterious perks in the distant future?

You'd refuse point blank, wouldn't you?

But what if the job in question was playing a state-of-the-art fantasy MMORPG game? And what if this was the only thing you're really good at? Especially considering that your in-game partner is someone really special to you - and this person already lives a virtual life?

Knowing all this, would you consider the mysterious future bonus worth your while? I dare you to try it!

sThis is exactly the kind of story I go on RR to read. It is a real LITRPG story. For me this genre has to have the system mechanics (ie discussions of stats, skills, levels, etc.). I really enjoy character progression and the discovery process. The plot is engaging; not completely unique but comfortably familiar and an enjoyable read. Please keep the LITRPG elements an important part of the story. If I wanted to read a pure fantasy story I would be doing that, but I want LITRPG.

Thanks for a good beginning.

P.S.     I just found it avilable for preorder on Amazon. I ordered it.

For everyone that wants to read the story, try to at least read the first couple chapter.

It takes some time to really get into the story and appreciate its originality. At first, I could swear it was the same as Legendary Moonlight Sculptor. Poor MC, weak/sick sister, wanna get rich by playing the new VRMMORPG, meets the #1 beauty of the world, etc. But although there are lots (and I mean LOTS) of similarities, the storyline is different and the author added his own perspective and imagination.

All in all, it is a very promising book that I can't wait to read.
