Cute, clever, punny and wonderfully voiced. A unique perspective for the genre that gives a satisfying game feel without clogging the reading up with the usual torrent of numbers. ♡

Thank you.

More of the same wonderful writing I have come to love. Do you know how hard it is to follow up one of your novels with anything else?

Awesome as always.

Just as my header suggests, I am a fan of the series and author, and this addition has done nothing to make me less fond of either. Thanks for all the great stories Drew!

I love fairy tales. The kind with magic that feels like childhood common sense, where terrible things have to happen because the wonderous could not happen without the sacrifice. The kind where the end is spelled out from the beginning, but you fall in love with the beautiful scenes and cruel losses of the journey. The kind with language and laws so simple but finely arranged that they seem like poetry. Real love and effort went into its telling, from the written words to the voices of the narrator. If you are a fairy tale fan, I urge you to give this tale a try. It is worth every moment of its 20+ hour run time.

A series with a strong start!

This novel seems to have skipped the sin of dragging out introductions and (often unnecessary) explanations, as so many in the litrpg genre have fallen into the bad habit of, for which I cannot properly articulate my thanks. I enjoyed the pacing, the lack of an obligatory romantic partner for the MC, and found the characters likeable and interesting. Following the game plot may be difficult for those who struggle with understanding the intricacies of politics, but the general plot does not suffer for it. The narrator’s tone is not serious even during most of the very serious moments, which in turn makes the reading seem lighter despite some very heavy content. I look forward to purchasing the sequel and hope the series continues to impress and entertain.

More Accountant Than Vampire

Predictable in the best ways with endearing characters and subverted cliches. The title is only half true; Fred is certainly an accountant at heart and may never become the typical cardboard cutout of a hero or a badass vampire, but that just makes his successes despite being true to that label all the more interesting. Do yourself a favour and take this reminder that you don’t have to fit into a box or a stereotype to save the day or be the hero nobody expected. #Audible1

When the existence of an ancient immortal superhuman race in your story is more believable than the other characters' reactions to them, it has to be a guilty pleasure for me. I typically cannot stand plots or characters which feel forced or false. I feel like I am reading a parody rather than a romance. Nevertheless, the humor of the scenario, however unrealistic, brings me back repeatedly to reread this novel.
