Description

The decision to start a new life is never an easy one, but for Joe the transition was far from figurative. Becoming a permanent addition to a game world, it doesn't take long to learn that people with his abilities are actively hunted. In fact, if the wrong people gained knowledge of what he was capable of, assassins would appear in droves. 

In his pursuit of power, Joe fights alongside his team, completes quests, and delves into the mysteries of his class, which he quickly discovers can be practiced only in secret. Ultimately, his goal is to complete every mission, master every ability, and learn all of the world's secrets. All he has to do is survive long enough to make that happen.

Amazing Litrpg book

I loved it. The first few chapters were a little slow, but it picked up and never stopped. The narrator wasn't my favorite, but it was still easy to listen too. Great story, characters, and left me wanting more.

Turned me around

The description didn't sound exactly like what I was looking for but I was enthralled throughout and listened to the whole book in one go. Awesome book can't wait to start the next one.

A fantastic continuation to the Dungeon Born

Captivating story and premise. Loved that it stands on its own but takes slight things from the original series. The narrator nailed it - he is top notch on these books.

Genus! Joe is Great and I cannot wait for more.

This is a fantastic LitRPG or GameLit or whatever... 10 out of 10 Do recommend. Vikas is also well worth your time... his range is astonishing.

very enjoyable lit rpg

the 1st chapter is a bit of a slog but well worth it. the story is engrossing and does a great job of building a world with interesting mechanics. There is a little unfocused feel throughout but it is a very enjoyable story

Great book in this genre.

I really enjoyed this. The plot, characters, game elements, and unique features of the setting were all interesting and enhanced the story. There were good development moments and some semi unfortunate silly mistakes, but the good far outweighed the sins. Overall an easy recommendation if you are interested in the genre.

The summary for the book was a little lacking, so I didn't get it immediately when looking at the genre. I was pleasantly surprised when I got into the book and almost slammed it in one sitting. Luckily work allows me to enjoy my audiobooks with only limited interruptions. I guess my point here was that if you are hesitant about the description trying to sell the book to you; don't be. As long as the genre interests you, you should find something to enjoy in this book.

Why Elon Musk?

The story is really great but, the vague references to Elon Musk soon turn into him being an actual backing character. Everytime he's mentioned it just pulls be out of the story and back to reality making the book less enjoyable than it would be.
It was kind of funny the first time but quickly got annoying.

This is Isekai gold. Ignore the misleading sample

NO SPOILERS
I wish Audible chose a better section for the sample because it's like someone only letting you taste the plate part of a steak dinner.
If you love isekai, which refers to a genre of anime where the character is "from another world", just stop now and buy this book it has everything you love from the interesting character/class and setting, to the lovable supporting cast.
I love the game world Dakota sets up, filled with lore and characters who really seem to be alive in every sense of the word. And though I I think Vikas gives all the characters a distinct voice and personality, I especially LOVE the way he reads the text pop-ups and all of the accompanying flavor text.
To reiterate I loved this book, so much so that I bought the sequel when there were still four chapters left.

Ritual is necessary for us to know anything

I really did not want to like this book. I wanted Dakota Krout to keep putting out his Divine Dungeon series until it was finished. Now, I'm torn. I still want the Divine Dungeon series, but now I also want MORE Ritualist. Krout is an incredible writer, and you get sucked into the story immediately. I appreciate how he gets the character of Joe into the game quickly and doesn't really screw around with all the usual angst or cognitive dissonance most MC's display when they are about to go into a virtual world permanently. Nope, we go straight into the game, and we are better for it.

I really appreciate that Joe gets a secret class, with special skills, and that he works for a hidden god. It's fun watching him try to keep things straight, because once the cat is out of the bag then he loses all kinds of benefits. And he has some sweet skills. The only thing that really throws me off is that the MC, Joe, enters the VR permanently because he is a quadrapalegic, and still opts to get a body that will be winded from walking to fast and can be beheaded from a paper cut. You would expect him to take a healthy vibrant body, but I will say his choice does make sense if you consider that he is in it for the long haul. He has a long distance perspective that few others have. Additionally, Krout is about the only dude I know that can make a healer not only exciting but totally a bad grass mamajamma. Most people go swordsman, rogue, or wizard. Dakota manages to make the cleric interesting. Plus the ritual stuff and the occultist proffesion suck you in.

Vikas Adams had me waaaaay back with the Divine Dungeon number one, Dungeon Born. I loved his characterizations and the humor he injects with his voice. There are few narrators who are as skilled as he is, and he really moves the story along at his pace. The man is a pleasure to listen to, and his female voices are just as good as his male ones.

I gove Krout points for including a nod to my beloved Dungeon, Cal, in this book and can see the similarities in attitudes. Both are fair, easily annoyed, and ready to dole out proper punishments and rewards. Can we see a nod to everyone's favorite wisp in the next book, Dakota?

I loved the cover, the wolfman looks awesome, and we get to see Joe right in the middle of a ritual. It looks slick, and you know that this book is going to feature some hardcore monsters and some deadly magic. Lava Worms, anyone? Joe is a fun character, and I really look forward to seeing more of him in the future. Now, we just need to get the Divine Dungeon series caught up and I'll be satisfied. YOU will be satisfied if you get this book. This is, without question, one of the best LitRPG/GameLit books I've ever read! Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

If this review helped, please press the YES below. Thank you immensely!!!

It is meh.

The overall story is ok, but very basic with the author hitting you in the face with every cliche in the book, and not in a fun way. I have read worse books for all that says about this one.

The narrator was ok but sounds like he is just starting out. There seemed to be emphasis in weird spots. He also seemed to try to be acting for some of the reading which is appreciated, but was poorly done and flat.

All in all, ok if your under 16 and new to the genre.

Hold your breath

I almost gave up on this book in the first 10 minutes due to some truly horrific attempts at cleverness. If those attempts had paid off later in the book, I might even forgive them, but it really was just the author's own little inside joke. It would be like having a well-endowed blond hairdresser character who everyone calls Dolly and who is at one point encouraged to "part on". That's about the level of cleverness we're talking about here. But it only lasts a while, so if you can get past the first couple chapters (which also include some truly distasteful representations of soldiers and veterans), you may actually enjoy the rest. It's the classic "RPG in real life" genre that seems to have emerged recently, and it's a solid addition to that area.

Masterpiece

Dakota Krout, as always, delivers a phenomenal story. I thought it would be hard for him to top his Dungeon Born series, yet he managed to pull of an amazing new story. I'm fully hooked, eagerly awaiting the next in the series!

The Ritualist is one of the most interesting takes on LitRPG I've had the pleasure of hearing. He doesn't turn his main character into a "Mary Sue", making him fight for every bit of progress.

Do NOT skip this, it's definitely worth the listen. Vikas Adam delivers a strong performance, combining with Krouts great story for a delightful listen.

Elon musk really?!

The beginning has just put in such a bad mood. It literally wanted to make me stop listening the way you turned Elon into a big baby. " I'm gonna get back at you even if it means ridding the world of oil... you can call me Elon." so kringe I'm considering dropping it immediately. if this is how you characterize real people; I hate to think of the hero you make for your book.

edit1:
trying to power through this beginning without doing much thinking. "Religous" guy against committing suicide... commits suicide and creates a digital version of himself but some how is ok with it.

Damn you Dakota!

I want to say that I hated this book oh, I want to say this series needs to end, but I cannot.

I am a huge fan of the Dungeon Norn series therefore I was reluctant to even start this series because it felt like promoting it would take away from any further entries for Dungeon Born, but screw it because this book was good!

Maybe the main character was a little bit too much of the quintessential hero we find the most modern day media, but to be honest it's written in such a way that it does not feel so campy / taboo. I genuinely enjoy the world that is being built, and can't wait to see what happens in it.

Surprisingly good story

So this story was surprisingly good. Well thought out plot and good progression.

2 issues 1. Some things that the character previously did are not counted like title. 2. The way stats are read I hear the same sentence basically repeated four times right after each other when talking about new abilities or quests. It says the sentence one other sentence then says the same sentence again but it’s not a mistake in the recording the way it’s done shows that’s how it is written.

Oh and in the begging at the end of the chapters their is a long pause to the point I thought my book stopped working. However this did get better as the story progressed.

Now read this those are my complaints. My only complaints for this book. It was actually a great listen. I’m about to start book 2 and have book 3 pre ordered. I’ll hold off on the side quest for now as it is a bit shorter.
