Just as countless MMORPG’s have captured the hearts and minds of many of us, this series will have you staying up late and shirking your duties just for a taste of escape. Tad (Talon) is by far one of the most entertaining main characters I have experienced in my audible journey. One instantly empathizes with him and feels the twists and turns in real life as he does in this DR environment. Beautiful concept, excellent writing, imaginative storyline, and inventive use of the MMORPG genre.

I find it fairly hard to believe that MC was a game developer. For someone who is a game developer the MC made some decisions that doesn't seem accurate to me. For example) the scene where he gives a beggar a coin with full expectation of a quest/reward or the scene where he walks into a shop and begins breaking pots at random. While in games these concepts can be a real thing the way the MC does not logical assess the situation or even just ask his friend does not seem like a probable action or way of thinking a developer with years of experience would take.
I understand what the author wants to do with the whole "don't make deals with the devil" theme, but the consistent emphasis on the theme I feel is unnecessary. As the reader I already understand what happened/is happening the first time you mentioned it. It wasn't as clever as it could have been.
The lore that was used to help with the final scenes was sub-par. A cryptic poetic message that tells the MC to do what they were already doing in the first place doesn't make a good reveal or realization.
For the sake of not spoiling too much for those that still want to read it I will just say that the ending is cliche.
