Description

Surviving in a tough situation is not always the best option; sometimes dying is much better than staying alive. The Academy showed Paladin Yaropolk what makes the world go round: pragmatism and personal gain. Restart was set in motion, but it only makes players more frantic. Now everyone plays only for themselves. Yaropolk faces the same dilemma: be like all of them, or keep his humanity and be known as an odd duck. Because there is only one rule in this world: kill or be killed....

bad translation

i love this writer but this is just google translate in audio. Its hard to understand why anyone would turn this mess of jumbled words in to a audio book. I would recommend waiting for the translated version and not support lazy junk..

Good story hindered by poor translation.

Not up to the standards set by Way of the shaman series when it comes to the translation but even despite that fact good if just barely. You will notice this wasn't originally written in English. I just feel there's so much lost even if I technically understand everything and because of that fact I stuggled to continue in places. Here's to hoping that the translation will be handed to someone else next book.

whaa?

i struggle to understand this steaming pile in need of an editor. mahanenko's shaman series is quite good, and i also have enjoyed his sci-fi lit rpg. this series is just odd. the narrator is not very good. the story is twisty...but not in an "oceans 11" way...more in a "spin the wheel and pick your plot point" kind of way. the final scenes were bizarre and almost redeemed the book, but didnt quite make it. the main character is a misogynistic pig w h o has embraced the dark side without really giving us much insight except for convenience. he has all the character development of a soggy graham cracker. i doubt that i will read any more in this series, and it has left such an icky taste in my mouth im not sure ill read anything else by mahanenko either.

Its decent but...

Overall this story is decent, but for some reason I haven't been able to figure out, the author decided to make the main character quite sexist. I didn't sense the same sexism in other stories by this author, but in this particular trilogy, the main character is so completely sexist, at times it wasn't comfortable.

Same interesting writer, same bad translator

I already reviewed the first volume of this series and this second one is no different. It is the kind of writing we expect from Mahanenko. A bit sloppy but inventive and in my opinion original and creative enough to be interesting and entertaining.

However, the translation is horrendous. This woman obviously has barely a grasp of basic English. It is clear that the fault lies in translation since time and time again the reader will hear better sentence structures and superior choice of phrasing in his or her own head while listening to this book.
I beg all publishers to encourage this "translator" to stick to disgracing her native language and leave English translation to the true professionals. Shame on her for defiling a writers work.

Good not Great

Better than the first but yet again the plot was not easy to follow. Alot of things do not make 100 sense.

MC continues to be a pansy.

The main character continues to get beat up by a female character and going back for more. He is pretty much a punk through the whole book. Not a fighter I don't want to read a detective novel when I buy a litrpg paladin fantasy and that's how this reads. Thought it might get better after the first book but it doesent. Not at all what I was expecting from a Russian author but maybe he is into dominant chicks.
