Title says it all I guess. Not gonna lie: I skipped some chapters because I didn't like some of the characters. Mainly Maddock and the early Valerie chapters... Maddock should be self explanatory, years of WoW on PvP server showed me more people like him than I want to think about, and reading about those idiots didn't interest me in the slightest. I'm sure they'll pop up in a future book to annoy me further but until plot points start crossing with Darwin directly I plan to avoid his chapters completely.
As for the story itself, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Events in the epilogue have forced me to buy the remaining books as I now have many questions that need answering in regards to Eve & Stephanie. All in all an excellent LitRPG series, and I look forward to reading the remaining books.
