This was a solid post-apocalyptic LitRPG. All th usual elements are there - a suitably grim beginning, struggle and conflict along with learning the new world rules and character development. Everything seemed quite fresh at the beginning, but as I continued to read, the story lacked anything truly original or new to make it stand out. So overall okay, but nothing special.
There are a number of interesting characters faced with intriguing challenges in grim circumstances. The book sets up the premise of the new world through their eyes of the main character and describes his internal balancing act between personal survival, individual power and his membership of a community of fellow survivors. The foreshadowing regarding the possible costs of pursuing personal power is one reason I will definitely get the next book when it comes out. Overall an good example of the LitRPG genre.
I enjoyed the story and I feel like the main character has the potential to be going somewhere intresting. There were a few editing errors but all minor and not really enough to affect the reading experience.
