Publisher's Summary

Nineteen-year-old Ryuk Matsuzaki and his best friend Tamana decide to start over with new avatars. When Tamana is suddenly killed right in front of him in a Tokyo subway, Ryuk knows there is only one place he can search for answers -- Tritania, the world's most popular online fantasy world. Standing in his way are a mysterious guild known as the Shinigami, and his older brother, a Yakuza crime lord hell-bent on squashing his dreams. As a lowly Ballistics Mage, Ryuk must quickly recruit guild members, level up, loot and shoot his way across Tritania to discover the dark and sinister secret behind Tamana's untimely death. Joining him in his quest are a famous Swedish gamer, a powerful half-dragon half-human female assassin, and a devious ax-wielding goblin. Get started on this action-packed, coming of age LitRPG saga from the author of The Feedback Loop series now!

Excellent example of LitRPG

The LitRPG world is coming to life more and more wirh varied examples, and im not a massive fan of this type.
The stats can be lost and fogotten almost as quick as rhey are said but the brillance of the characters and their development makes this a worthwhile buy. listening to the various effects performed by Jeff Hays does credir to Harmon Coopers job here. As a fan of his Feedback series i wasnt too sure but it seems a good writer can write almost anything. A very good writer can make even a dubious proposition come alive and make a fan of me. The genre would be a poor substitute without the real life action outside the game and without 2 characters the excellent hoblin Hiccup and the live feed, advert pushing swede which gives many options to the usual stories.
The humour helps a lot especially on audio but will probably mean you either love it or hate it attitude as the humour is very zany and childish.
For me in a fan and also bit of a child so im happy to go back again.
This audio was gifted to me and i have left an honest review and as such is my own opinion.
