Publisher's Summary

An all powerful entity bestows individuals with a powerful brand in the form of a tattoo. Using the system that is controlled by the tattoo, you can learn supernatural abilities, acquire knowledge unknown to man, and acquire objects that would only be found in fiction. The world is changing... and it has yet to be determined if it is for better or worse. 
Two friends who grew up together, Ace and Vincent, have been chosen. Ace lives for physical improvement. He loves the feeling of breaking his records and growing stronger. Unfortunately, he has plateaued in recent months, discouraging him greatly. 
Vincent is plagued by little to no desire in anything he does. Good grades? Successful life? He feels nothing. Except, perhaps, the feeling of pain and fear. Sadly for him, modern day society is a peaceful one. 
The arrival of the tattoo flipped their lives upside down. It granted them the ability to fulfill their desires. However... they weren't the only ones who were given the tattoo.

Neat premise, but lacking in execution.

The narrator did his best, but comes off as a bit monotone for the majority.

The story's premise is neat, but the pacing is about ten times faster than what you'd expect. "weeks passed", "months passed" and "two years passed" were frighteningly frequent, leading to nearly zero character development at all.

Also, the writer frequently just tells you how to feel, instead of building a scene to actually make you feel anything other than jet-lag.

Sad to see such poor execution for a good premise.

Finally! A LitRPG without the "Waxing poetic"

I'm a fan of LitRPG. I've gamed most of my life, so naturally, I'm rather partial to the genre. But, a lot of them, and I mean a lot, wax poetic on the great feelings and fear as if each extra elaborate word will force the emotion they want onto the reader. I mean, we are imaging the situation, the emotion is already there. As well as over-eager writers with comedic aspirations who drop a line after tiring line to bring humor to their tale... without much success. This all leaves a bare-bones story that should have been wrapped up stretching over 2 to 3 books when only 1 was needed... if that.

This book has none of that. It introduces a new gaming system, a host of characters and shows progress. Real progress... with action and a clear path that a real gamer can appreciate. True grinding... the veritable backbone of gaming, grinding is actually utilized! I was so happy I used a credit on this book. I'm just sad this is the only work so far by this writer.

If I had a grip, it would be that the performer is not great, but good. I wasn't hating every minute, I actually enjoyed my self. But, from listening to so many other great performers, the level between this performer and the greats is noticeable. If I have to vocalize the issue... it's in the subtleties. It sounded less conversational and a bit like someone reading a book report, if that makes sense. But, I have high hopes that he will develop even more if this series goes on.

One of the better ones.

It's one of the better novels for the novel franchise that is growing somewhat. I wouldn't say it would compare to a very "Well Written" book like Shakespeare and similar titles, so people looking for a grammatical, in-depth heaven probably won't find it here. But for the most part, it's relatively well done. The narrator though stale at times does do the job well, and I've heard worse than John Downey.

I think if you're not that familiar with similar titles you may struggle to connect very well with this book and I'd say save it for after you get a little more used to the genre so you can enjoy it more.

could have used a better narrator

could have used a better narrator. the book itself was little rough but not the worst I've heard. the theme is OP MCs. it's funny how the characters are always surprised when a demonstration of power is shown in front of them multiple times.....
