    The MC and Narrators killed this book for me. 1 )The MC is a total moron *Talks to women as if they are in their teens. * Gets tricked by some goddess * Gets tricked again by random woman and left for dead * Gets tricked by random couple * Still trusts random goddess is going to do right about what she said * Why does he care to help this goddess, he should be working against her! The narration is being read like a dictionary and spliced together with different audio tracks.

    Not going to waste time on an isekai book with a moron for a main character. A good isekai relies on the main character. The setup is always the same, the world details hardly matter, but the main character sets the tone. This one has a ridiculously idiotic main character. It makes for a boring, predictable story.I got maybe ten percent through it and quit.

    Another shitty porn because with zero redeeming qualities every woman throws themselves at the MC 🙄 this shouldn't even be called gamelit. Another shitty porn because with zero redeeming qualities every woman throws themselves at the MC 🙄 this shouldn't even be called gamelit.

    Started this but could not finish. Reads like adolescent wish fulfillment. This isn’t uncommon for litrpg and fantasy in general, sadly, but it’s not my preferred reading material.

    I took a strong dislike to the MC and that was the end of it for me.

    DNF Both MC and story were too mechanical, that I completely lost interest. Just couldn’t find my way to finish and gave up around 53%

    If it were 600 pages instead of >1000 it'd likely be a 5 from me, as I liked the story and the characters. The writing is good, it just dragged on a bit too much. I know it's a "progression" story, but a whole lot of that should have been compressed, or elided as "the past few months saw..." in order to tighten it up. Overall I enjoyed it and have already downloaded the next book to see where it goes. If it were 600 pages instead of >1000 it'd likely be a 5 from me, as I liked the story and the characters.

    Very Good A fantastic story, but it is unfortunately very dry and dense at times and doesn't always flow off the page. Very Good A fantastic story, but it is unfortunately very dry and dense at times and doesn't always flow off the page.

    Book one Mistakes: I found a lot scattered throughout this book. It's a long book, with lots of little mistakes. Plot: The story even with mistakes was good enough I pre-ordered book two. Book one has a lot going on. Characters: Interesting characters with no haram. While there is flirting and sex it's all fade to black thankfully. 6/10 Book one Mistakes: I found a lot scattered throughout this book. It's a long book, with lots of little mistakes.

    I've just finished Isekai Magus by Han Yang, and holy cow, what an epic adventure, and the next BIG thing in Litrpg and progression fantasy. I was absolutely blown away by this book. It started off a touch slow, but now that it's over, and I'm looking back at it, I'm just, blown away. At over 1100 pages, buckle yourselves in for an adventure that never seems to end. I spent over a week unable to put the book down. Everytime I thought it was time for a break, a chapters cliff hanger kept forcing I've just finished Isekai Magus by Han Yang, and holy cow, what an epic adventure, and the next BIG thing in Litrpg and progression fantasy.

At over 1100 pages, buckle yourselves in for an adventure that never seems to end. I spent over a week unable to put the book down. Everytime I thought it was time for a break, a chapters cliff hanger kept forcing me to read just one more. I think my marriage might have suffered haha! The MC is a healer/necromancer, which is a really fun combo that the author really takes advantage of in all the best ways. As a necromancer, he faces all the challenges a necromancer would face, as well as all the sweet sweet boons. It has a fantastic and really deep magic system, with an extremely basic stat system, which makes for a really fun combination. Leveling in this book is incredibly difficult and results in some really fun outcomes and consequences. The MC and his party are often rewarded for their creativity and willingness to try out new ideas. There is no sexual content in this book, besides the fact that it mentions that it happens and it's not forced and feels very natural, which for me, is perfect, because that's not why I read these books. And the battle scenes, oh my, the battles scenes become so epic, by the end of one, I literally shout 'YES' at the end of one. This is a very fun, easy read, that you will absolutely become invested in. I felt personally betrayed by the betrayals, fell in love with his friends, and agreed with his friends when the MC does something stupid and is told so by his friends. I don't want to give too much away, because it really is a treat to encounter the twists, turns and everything in between naturally. The pacing is actually amazing, which can often be a struggle for books of this size and scope. The plot, main, overarching, and sub, are all extremely well thought out and captivating. As a person who loved(s) He Who Fights With Monsters, The Completionist Chronicles, and Divine Dungeon, I would say that if you liked those, you will love this. Definitely, without a doubt, my favorite book to date. For those wondering, there isn't an 'Audiobook' out yet, but up to chapter 31 is free on youtube. It is also available on KU, and the author has said there is a second book coming out next month, and oh man, I have to clear my schedule for that one. Overall - 9.75/10 MC - 8/10 Party - 9/10 Magic System - 9/10 Progression - 10/10 Adventure - 10/10 Please, please, please, do yourselves a favor and have a look at this book, I personally guarantee, you probably won't regret it.

    One of the best isekai I’ve read. Most isekai type works are obviously Japanese and this western authored book manages to avoid pretty much all of the annoying nonsense which has taken over most isekai. The simple fact that we can read a high quality fantasy book and not spend 200 pages on the joys of Japanese cuisine is great. We get it, you like your food, but this is fantasy not a cook book. The tropes in isekai light novels are getting to the point of unreadability and this book actually has One of the best isekai I’ve read.

The tropes in isekai light novels are getting to the point of unreadability and this book actually has adult characters which is a huge plus vs the 9 to 15 year old combat genius characters who are overly young for no reason. About this book in particular, it is more mature and does not twist itself into a pretzel to be scared of sex or romance. I think the negative reviews must be from people who fit into the demo of wanting to read about teenage boys who hate sex for no intelligible reason in any universe. Isekai Magus is just about everything I’d want in a story with leveling progression, fascinating world building, with great detail and creativity in the mechanics. It has a casual style where you just slot into the world and things happen without overt exposition, this is a show me don’t tell me type story where you come to understand things which happen. Truly the world and motivations people have are well thought out. It is memorable and unique where I find myself thinking about it long afterwards. It feels fresh and while it is clearly in the genre, it does not feel formulaic, stale, or like it is repeating tropes. All aspects feel intentional and well out together. This is an instant top 5 book for me. It isn’t quite as epic as my favourite 12 kingdoms classic isekai, nor is it as in detail as ascendance of a bookworm, but as an action driven world it pays enough attention to detail (get more wagons!) to be satisfying. I feel like the author took on board all the feedback from the maturing fanbase / community to do all the things that makes this genre great and removed all the baggage and nonsense ‘comedy’ elements of people arguing / bickering about bath time out…which has never once been funny. It is a genre that seems intent on getting us to hate it with the endless lolicon nonsense presented as normal. This book takes away almost all of the garbage and leaves us with the golden fantasy book we want from the genre.

    Excellent Saga I really enjoyed reading this story. It starts with a Mc I didn’t like. A stereotype California dude who was a player. The book description of a womanizer is false because he straight up didn’t lie about what he wanted. His non ambition would have women who only wanted one thing from him anyway. Once he gets to the new planet he grows up nicely and I want more story.

    I loved that this book was not rushed in any way. We got to see a lot of the MC’s trials and what made him so competent in this world. The concept of a healer/necromancy was novel to me but created an interesting build for the MC. There was a little bit of everything: romance, crunch LitRPG mechanics, witty banter, betrayal and a lot of action. There is good world building and a unique experience mechanic for leveling.

    Meandering but fun fantasy This was more of an epic fantasy read than a Litrpg. Stars came in only when convenient. Lots of clutter and fillers which led to a bloated Book 1. However overall a decent start to the series. Intresting world building and will give another shot at this unique cast of characters.

    A lot of book! This was a fun read. A pretty cool premise, solid world-building, and an engaging read to boot. I was pleasantly surprised at the length. Many modern LitRPG authors would have cut this into about 3 or 4 books. So cudos to Yang for just giving us a nice, long book. The LitRPG elements are there, but not overwhelming. I'm looking forward to the next in the series. A lot of book! This was a fun read. A pretty cool premise, solid world-building, and an engaging read to boot. I was pleasantly surprised at the length.

    For Tribe Moonguard Heh, I don't usually do "writer service", but this one is good enough for me to do what the writer asked in his beg for reviews. It also helped this wasn't in "Two Hour Reads" that take about 45 minutes For Tribe Moonguard Heh, I don't usually do "writer service", but this one is good enough for me to do what the writer asked in his beg for reviews.

    Really enjoyed this book I haven’t read such a good book of this genre for a while. A must read for fans of the genre and a good first introduction for those new to the genre. You know it’s been good when it leaves you wanting more.

    Satisfying This book was amazingly good and satisfying-ly long. Perhaps epic can be used? Although that’s hard to justify on a first readthrough. It was a good story. With ups and downs interesting developments, some unexpected. Satisfying.

    Liked it Fast paced page turner with interesting characters that you can instantly root for. I like the fact that the main character started out as a stumbling fumbling fool and worked hard to improve. I will be getting the next book and checking out other books by this Author

    Well written fantasy book Exactly what I expected and hoped for without the needless harem soft porn in other books. Good character development. I am moving onto the second book but this has a decent ending so you can read it as a stand alone book.

    Really disappointed I really gave this book a try, I got through a quarter of it 25% but honestly, it's way to slow and quite frankly boring as hell to read, the plot is also quite unoriginal but also I feel badly written! Would definitely avoid reading if you can!

    This is one of the worst books I’ve listened to (in Audible) in a long time. The story itself was sub-par, but the narrators (particularly for the female characters) were very grating. I couldn’t deal with the narration anymore and had to give up listening to the book.

    Good series start! I was almost afraid it was going to go harem, but it didn’t and I was very happy that it slowly progressed in power. As a friend of mine observed, the author may have some wargaming experience and be using it. That was another thing that drew me to it.

    Good book Whoa that was a long but good read. Good MC who uses his head and listens to others for once. Faces losses but learns from them and grows stronger.

    Great Book I really enjoyed this first book in this series and am definitely looking forward to book two. There were a few typos but nothing that detracted from enjoying it.
