Shaman Chronicals

I really liked the authors other work, and after the Shamon Chronicals was expecting more or less the same plot line with different characters.

So many authors find a formula that works for them and stick to it..

Gee this book surprised me, pleasantly.

I was so different to all the other works by the author.. And it was brilliant.

The only bad Mahanenko book

Unlike the author's other works, this book is exceedingly gritty, graphic, and dull. The narrator isn't nearly as good as his past works, and the mechanics of this LitRPG universe are fairly wonky and technical.

Warning for younger/impressionable readers:
The book contains some extremely graphic incidents of violence right from the beginning. Expect bloody description of people being blown to bits and tearing out someone's throat to drink their blood. Expect explicit sexual references, which are far stronger than the author's other books.

Most, but not all of the curse words have been edited out in translation.

If that wasn't bad enough, the plot really struggles at some moments and the book feels about 5 hours too long.
