Publisher's Summary

How Often Do You Get a Second Chance in Life?
Seth Kinnaman's dream has always been to become the best fighter the world has ever seen. After spending his entire life training, he's finally ready to test his skills in the biggest tournament on Earth, where hundreds of the fiercest competitors vie for the supreme title.
In the semifinals, Seth is getting the upper hand when his opponent uses an illegal blow to take him out. Upon waking up from a coma, Seth finds out he's lost his sight. He's become blind, and he's completely devastated. All his dreams are now shattered, and he soon falls into depression. What is he going to do with his life?
That's when he's introduced to Bushido Online, a game that promises to keep his skills sharp while he figures out what his next move is going to be. Set in feudal Japan, this VRMMORPG is the land of ninjas and samurai. A world where the most honorable warriors meet the vilest bandits and where mythical creatures roam free. When he'll enter that new reality, Seth will discover that while it's easy to make friends there, one doesn't have to try very hard to get his fair share of powerful enemies.
Soon he's going to have entire clans hunting him down as he struggles to learn the ropes and regain a sense of normalcy. Thankfully, Seth has a few things going for him: his extensive knowledge of combat and a never-say-die attitude.
Bushido Online: The Battle Begins is the first book in the Bushido Online series, a work of litRPG fiction.

A very good LITRPG Book.

I saw a review that almost scared me away from the series but I spent the credit anyway. This guy does not mope about his handicap through the entire book or take a lot of time bringing it up. Everything that happens has relivance to the plot and the story as a whole.

Great premise with lots of potential!

A start is what this book ultimately boils down to with A lot of introductions into interesting concepts and elements within the online universe, alluding to many things that could happen without really commiting to anything yet in regards to customising his personal skills. Hopefully now that the character has reached a personal/emotional milestone he can focus a bit more on the samurai/ ronin premise and elements like capturing territory or developing some side skills/ professions.

coincidence plays quite a big factor in the book, hopefully in the next book the main character can make their own deductions and decisions.

I do have a gripe with the blindness thing, which is if technology had progressed enough to have full immersion VR then why can't they simulate a camera attached to a go-pro or something. solving the root of the problem rather than the aftereffects.

one of the good ones

yeah, an good story, could do with more description of the fighting, the guy is an ex world champ and it feels glossed over in parts. also it feels odd that we never had a moment back in the real world dealing with his blindness.
