Given that this is a lazy review I’ll try to keep this short and sweet. I would recommend this book to people who like overpowered protagonist who stand above all. The plot and story is simple and easy to follow. Jake spends a good chunk of the book alone and actively avoids people. However, Jake does face challenges just not from humans. His special MC power is at its peak when Jake fights beings at a higher level of existence then himself. Which means he is so used to punching above his weight class he just curb stomps humans when he runs into them.
What will I remember after finishing this review? (Characters, Plots, Action)
I like the power system in this book. It’s basically genetic tweaking on a magical level. Every bit of power comes at a cost. And if the characters are not careful they could power themselves up in ways that alter their personalities. In fact, if you wanted to get philosophical you could make the argument that humanity doesn’t survive in this book. In the end though this is a fun power fantasy. Especially for those who like books where the plot centers around the main character’s actions at times.
Am I going to check out more from this series or author after this lazy review?
I have read the first couple of books and I can tell you it’s worth the time investment so far. At least if you like books about characters who build up cities and fight wars. And that’s only in the three books I read. There are 7 books in this series so far.
Lastly me, Feedback, suggestions, or recommendations about this review are always welcome.
Do people know of the genre of LitRPG and Gamelit? And if not what type of books do you read?
Anyway, thanks for reading my lazy Review!
