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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Wow

This was simply amazing. It has me wanting to go play a variety of mmo's and/or table top RPGs. I look forward to listening to the second book once I am able!! It had me laughing out loud at work and visibly reacting to the story. I probably looked like a crazy person but it was well worth it.

Fabulous - love the scholar path

I wasn't going to write a review, just give it five stars and then I glanced over the negative reviews. They make no sense! One person dismissed this as good for teens only. This 38 year old high school physics teacher/optometrist/gamer loved it!

I really liked the intro to Joe and the way he enters the game (the other prologue was a bit opaque and wasn't at all needed, I'll grant you that). Joe is a very likable and believable character. Not everyone wants to be a mindless barbarian! Some of us revel in our nerdiness and I LOVE that his skills in life actually translate into his skill in the game.

I found the pacing to be very good and I liked that the story wasn't linear. This world is open ended and so the story has multiple threads going at once which gave it a sense of realism and longevity. Awesome litRPG. I found Joe to be a more sympathetic and believable character than those in the Divine Dungeon series (which I also liked, but they were much more linear and less interesting especially the irritating wisp).

Best LitRpg I've ever read (er.. listened to)

I'm having a hard time, telling more about it than I already did in the title without spoilers. So let me just say: If you plan on reading/listening to a lit-rpg story, this one seems to be on the best choices for that.

The protagonist is likable, the world believable and the plot creates tension without having the need for the main character to facing life-threatening events all 3 pages. Even with lit-rpg not being my main genre, I have finished this story in 3 days.

The narrator is making a fine job. The one-star deduction is highly unfair, even in my eyes, but I am listening to my books often in environments (like my car) where the volume difference, which is used to create tension, gets unbearable, where one has to decide to either not being able to listening to the quit parts or to get half a heart attack with the loud parts.

I hope, audible will some day add an option for an automatic volume adjustment.

A masterpiece of MMORPG LITerature!

I inhaled the book in 2 days and listened to the Audiobook a few times now. I love it! This book is amazing, as all Dakota Krouts books apparently are. Dakotas world building is great, enough is explained to understand the characters and motivations, but you keep hoping for more thrilling answers. In my opinion this book doesn't get boring for a minute, but I'm a huge nerd that loves these kind of books.

Vikas Adam is an amazing narrator! 5/5*

Bezüglich des Sprechers:

Der sprecher ist fast immer sehr gut (5 Sterne), aber er verstellt seine Stimme für verschiedene Personen. Zumeist ist dies gut, bis auf die Paar, welche anstrengend / nervig / kaum verständlich sind. Dies ist zu Beginn des Hörbuches deutlich schlimmer als zum Ende.

Only for MMORPG fans.

The first chapter is horrible, both the story and performance. I almost dropped the audiobook because of it. Hovewer, it quickly improves after that and continues at a steady level.

optionale (aber benötigte...) Überschrift

Der Anfang war etwas verwirrend - nach der Beschreibung hatte ich angenommen das ganze startet ohne Vorgeschichte und dachte schon ich hätte das falsche Hörbuch erwischt^^ - aber sobald die Hauptperson im Spiel ist wird es besser und besser - was zum Glück nicht lange dauert

Super Buch.

Muss gestehen, dass ich am Anfang etwas verwirrt war.
Sobald man aber durch die erste Stunde durch ist wird es besser und besser.
Dakota Krout ist einer meiner Lieblingsautoren und fesselt mich jedes mal wieder aufs neue.
Die Welt, die er erschafft, ist interessant und vielfältig und ich kann es kaum erwarten, wie es weitergeht.
