Summary

Mankind has been under attack for 50 years by the awesome power of bosses and monsters who are the denizens of dungeons.

Monsters started these attacks when a mystical beast named Raekast appeared and threatened the world, eradicating human life from several continents. Raekast threatened all human life until a mysterious ceremony called "Rebirth" unlocked the hidden potential of humans strong enough to repel and defeat her. Raekast’s final, desperate act caused dungeons to spawn across the globe. The greatest of these dungeons is known as Titan. Dungeons are a threat to humanity and nature alike. Powerful reborn humans known as "Slayers" enter their dangerous depths to kill the monsters and bosses that live within and retrieve treasure, items and more.

Tad Harrington, a video-game-loving 16-year-old high school student, was bullied relentlessly throughout his life. Tad’s Rebirth date has come. His last hope is to be reborn a slayer strong enough to enter the toughest dungeons where a life of power and luxury could await him.

When things don’t go according to plan, Tad finds out he has a special Rebirth, one that can level up and grow stronger by defeating monsters. Starting from level one, how high can Tad climb? Can he overcome the challenges and become the ultimate dungeon slayer?

A brilliant concept perfectly executed.

Having played RPG's on paper and PC for most of my life this book was great fun for me. Brought into the really world in a clever way! There was nothing about this book I did not enjoy.

Too many stat repeats

The book was overall good, it did, however, repeat the main character’s stats more than needed.

narrator can't save this

this is a prime example of a interesting story absolutely ruined by a trash main character. the main character is such a whiny self absorbed loser that I hoped he would die just to end every single one of his problems from his past are his own fault and instead of working on them or any kind of self improvement he just mopes around blaming the world for not being fair

Great book but

This book is really dope just sometimes he doesn’t know how to used both his gifts of of physical and magic. And his lack of thinking when to use his gift can be annoying.

Very well done!!!

The introduction to the world, and the magic system was masterfully done.
Also, I love that the author didn't bother try to explain how some VR world became real all of a sudden. Instead we have a real world that is new to magic, and a MC who happens to have game mechanics govern his progression. I love that the MC is honestly afraid for his life, and that there real consequences for his decisions.
Also, MC is a HUGE success here. There is great character development and his thought processes are "reasonable." The author never had MC make ridiculous decisions just to move the story forward, and any questionable decisions were a true reflection of MC's inexperience and immaturity. Unfortunately, IMO retarded MC's r surprisingly common in the genre, so "reasonable" is actually better than what you get in most books. I personally never got overly frustrated with him.
Overall, I have to say I'm excited about this series. Probably going to hit up Kindle for Book 2, it's that good. I can't wait 6+ months for the next audio recording.

awesome

Okay so i had to keep reminding myself that the mc is just 16 but other than that i really liked the way the stats affected him but i don't know how to feel about the ending especially of him thinking that leadership is super easy and everyone can do it when he DOESN'T HAVE ANY SOCIAL SKILLS AT ALL! (maybe if he puts 4 levels worth of stats of charisma) yeah that was really annoying

A surprisingly enjoyable experience!

I bought this book because I was bored. I didn't enter with high expectations, but from start to finish (minus very minor writing issues Ill speak aboot later) it was of excellent quality! The author does one of the best jobs I've seen when making the reader feel the deep emotions of the character.

The narrator was also surprisingly good. he has minor issues, but no one is perfect. and everything i had any issue with he makes up for tenfold with expressive narration. reminded me of some of my favorite narrators!

So here is the part where I had a small issue with his writing. minor spoilers incoming. nothing major. So at a certain point in the book there is a small fustercluck of the word "roach". and by small I mean i heard the word 45 times in 3 minutes. Its a simple issue to fix, just add pronouns or descriptions like "the pincered insect". Its just that hearing that same word over and over completely disconnected me from everything the author attempted to portray.

This only happens once and is the only negative thing I can think of about the whole book, so dont you DARE hesitate to get this if you like LITrpgs.

i emjoyed it

for a first book i liked it. its def worth the credit. somethings that annoyed me was that each major fight was the same. . . fight. . get low on mana and health. come up with a new ability and win.

for a first book. . . its forgivable. if book 2 is the same then ill probably not continue the series but for now its on the tbr list

Excellent!

Pretty fun listen! Yeah the MC is a bit whiny, but its about the growth of the MC not the insta POWER from geek to macho Superhero.I read the reviews before getting the book and if i had listen to the trolls I would have missed out on a amazing listen. Austin brings the book to life, Just wish the second book was out already!

Great book based on Solo Leveling

The world of this series is based on Solo Leveling, where dungeons need destroying and no one levels (though improves through gear and better utilization of skill). As such, I think this story is quite an improvement over the initial concept in the overarching plot and character interactions. it isn't really an overpowered, perfect main character hiding his strength, but more like someone given the opportunity to grow through hardship and sort of feeling their way around making mistakes along the way.

One of the best parts of this series is actually one of the most annoying in the beginning. The MC starts out horribly unlikeable even in his narration in his own head, and how well the author evolved this aspect of the story and the conclusion of what was going on is truly unique to this story and ended up being my favorite part of this first book.
