Review: (Ritualist)

Joe is a paraplegic from IED in the military. He gets his consciousness uploaded into the game and his body destroyed. so there is no going back for him. Joe unlocks a hidden class called the Ritualist (Hence the book title.) The class is interesting, and if you’re a huge MMO fan, you might not like it at first. The class would be pretty useless in a real MMO game as it is now. Now, for a magical ability in a regular fantasy setting, it is almost too OP under the right circumstances. In fact, I’m a fan of the hidden class as it requires the MC to either be stupid rich or acquire resources another way (i.e., base building). So far, the series has a hefty amount of base building. Which is the thing keeping me reading.

My Opinion

It’s a good book. I recommend it. I’m not halfway through the series, so I can’t say if it stays good. I’ve dropped a decent amount of LitRPG series that drop off in quality after a few books. I hope this series isn’t one of them.

Will I check out more from this series or author after this lazy review?

I finished reading the 4th book, but I’m going to pause here for a bit. I’ll get back to the series eventually, but it’s not high on my list. In fact, the author has other newer series that I’m interested in checking out. Something, something Murderhobo, I think?

Lastly, Feedback, suggestions, or recommendations about this review are always welcome.

Anyway, thanks for reading!
