Publisher's Summary

Ruwen’s life is inside out, literally. Trapped in the Spirit Realm by a hostile god’s magic, Ruwen’s spells, abilities, and skills no longer work. Worse, his secret "cultivation" ability is now blindingly evident. 

A critical clue, given to Ruwen during the betrayal, makes him question the motives behind the treachery and offers a path home. But the Spirit Realm is dangerous, and with no other options, Ruwen must embrace his cultivation, learn to harness his power, and create his core. Failure will leave him defenseless and guarantee an eternity of pain and suffering.

And as Ruwen struggles to find a way forward, he is stunned to discover plans that span over 10,000 years. Secrets involving his missing parents, the gods, and himself.

To face what’s coming, Ruwen must risk everything for the skills to survive.

Your reward for finishing the first two.

If you are reading this, you probably know that both of the first books are fantastic, but also a bit of a struggle sometimes. This book is where the hero really starts to come into his own. It’s not that there aren’t challenges, but more that he is finally developing the strength to overcome his problems with more than luck and desperation. The relationships all develop in good ways, and I finished this book with a smile on my face. The juvenile humor if thankfully toned down a bit in favor of more mature comedy. Not to say that it’s pornographic or even all that romantic, just less reliant on poop jokes.

Absolutely incredible a great litRPG series

I discovered litRPG as a guilty pleasure about 2 years ago- it makes for some great escape reading. I've read most of the 'classic' series in the genre by now, and as we all know there's a lot of less great stuff floating around. I've been sad that after reading through some of the big names, I didn't find much else that kept my interest. Either they were just too poorly written, or too harem-y, or the protag was unlikable and smug, or whatever. I was basically losing interest in the genre, until I discovered this series.

Oh, man. Finally, well written characters that interact with each other in more or less believable ways, clever writing, funny, exciting....everything I wanted from litRPG. Now, this series doesn't necessarily do anything new, and you have a lot of the tropes of the series (unique class, etc), but that's fine- it does everything extremely well. It's definitely crunchy enough to satisfy stats geeks (and honestly if you don't like stats going up and down why are you reading litRPG?) but doesn't just dwell on the character sheets of the people in the world.

Really, just a wonderful series, and I feel like it keeps getting better. Some of the things that happened in this last book gave me chills, and I don't remember being moved like that by a book in a long time. One other great thing, I think the author has a FAQ about the series and their plans moving forward that you can read before you buy the book, which is think is a pretty classy move.

This isn't just a great litRPG series. It's a great series period. I can't wait for the next.

I had no expectations with this series. I was surprised how good it is. I don't believe you'd be disappointed in this purchase.

How about a recap

This book jumps back in right where the last left off. How about a reminder of what was happening.. if Its going to be a single flow release it as one book. I’m a hr in and don’t remover the names of the secondary characters and am lost. I’ve enjoyed the series so far but come on.

A solid third effort.

Definitely enjoyed it. However, it is a very much transition between a personal focus and an epic. Very much a middle book.

Some compression issues but the story shines through

Divine Apostasy started slow, but has become one of my favorite LITRpg’s in the genre. This one is no exception. With this book we finally see Ruwen begin to become who he is meant to be, and it is frankly exhilarating. For a story as “crunchy” (stat heavy) as this one, I am
Honestly surprise to be drawn into the story and comment with the characters as much as I have. This is a testament to good writing and that is certainly here. Kay knows his characters well and centers the story around them.

(Spoilers below).

The only issues I had were a few compression issues and Kay rushing a little bit. I get using time compression to speed up progress, and I feel Kay actually does this a lot better than many authors. Ruwen’s progress with Rami in becoming a Step Master was a good example of using time compression and showing the cost of doing it. Even so, I felt like Kay was trying to pack so much in here a few things got overlooked, or characters suddenly knew information they were never told. Ruwen’s progress absolutely skyrockets in this book. He goes from barely surviving, finding creative uses from the few abilities he has to some kind of cosmic Deity in training. To get him this far it feels like at times concepts are rushed over, or never fully explained to us, but our characters somehow understand them.

For example, when he meets the other champions in the Spirit Realm, Ruwen’s inner dialogue mentions that they look “not yet 200 years old.” How does he know what a 200 year old could look like? I also felt like Ruwen suddenly knows how to use “Essence” when we don’t really even learn what essence is until later. He seems to stumble into understanding perfectly what have been set up to be gargantuan complexities and blitz barriers that seem massive in the world building.

All that said, I only found these things minimally irritating because Kay has made these things a part of Ruwen’s character, and it really shines. Though his progress is insanely fast, nothing is worldbreaking and part of Ruwen’s charm as a character is his genius intellect and problem solving ability. Anyway. Another great entry that felt a tiny bit rushed. All I hope is for Kay to slow down a little in the next books so it makes sense that characters know certain info. On to the next!!
