A Lazy Review of A Grim Demise and Even Worse Resurrection: A LitRPG Fantasy Adventure (Bone Knight Book 1)

Quick Summary:

” A Hero Skeleton, A Dark Princess, and a Sadistic Paladin .”

This story is about Max. A guy who played a fantasy game when he was a kid. Years later, as a disillusioned failure of a young adult, Max gets summoned to this game world. There he manages to piss off the only other being as petty as him. So, now Max must undertake a quest to rescue a dark princess from enteral torment while being one of the weakest creatures in this strange world. Oh, and there’s a vegetarian axe-wielding barbarian thrown in the mix somewhere.

  1. Will I remember any of the story or Characters after reading this?
    • As much as I like Max, what I’ll remember most about this story is the power system. In the story, it’s kind of broken; however, it lets the MC change classes depending on his experience and skills gained. In the story, Max changes classes multiple times. And it was nice how each class had distinct strengths and weaknesses. An example of this is how one of the fighter classes is weak against monks. The reason is that one of the classes symbolizes chaos while the other symbolizes order. There is also a treasure-hunting scout class that he needs to find his objective, yet switching to it deprives Max of many of his important stats and skills for fighting.
  1. Was there anything that took away from my enjoyment of the story?
    • This book feels like it was written for a younger audience at times. The comedy didn’t always land for me. And most of the villains are one-dimensional. Max is forced to take the side of evil due to the plot. And, of course, everyone of importance on the side of good is actually corrupt. Don’t expect complex plots or schemes from this story. It’s a fun but simple story, with the twist being that the good guys are bad, and the bad guys are sometimes good.
  1. Am I going to check out more from this series or author?
    • So, I have already started reading the second book. Which is good so far, so I plan on continuing the series. Beware, though, as the series has a staggering 9 books in it. So, starting this series might require a bit of your time.
  2. Lastly me. Feedback, suggestions, or recommendations are always welcome.
