Jonathan Yanez, Ross Buzzell – Genesis

Grab your sword and get ready to level up.

The only way out is through.

Unbeknownst to him, Ray is about to partake on an adventure filled with magical beasts, warring factions, and a leveling-up system out of this world. He’ll encounter filthy bandits, musty crypts, and friendly werewolves. Oh, you heard us right.

If only he wasn’t given negative charisma points around women, he might have a chance, but you can’t win them all.

When the only way out of the game may be through, you fight like your life depends on it. Because it just may. Survival means victory, and defeat could mean the end – forever.

Note from the authors: This one’s for the underdogs out there. For lovers of adventure, the dice rollers of chaos, and the unapologetic gamers. We can’t promise it’ll be safe, but we can promise you’re in for one great journey.

User Review:

asshole gritty

The beginning of this book is interesting. The pacing feels good, there is some intrigue, and then all the small cracks in the foundation start to grow and the book just becomes tedious.

Why? I think the pacing of the narration is partly to blame. It is very sing-song-y…I was hiking and it suddenly came to me that the spirit of William Shatner was reading the book. Every other sentence was the most important sentence ever spoken aloud.

The other problem I had was the a whole middle section that felt completely unnecessary…basically everything after the prison break can be skipped until he walks in of the Dark King’s castle….and even then it’s questionable.

Is it worth a credit…no I don’t think so, there are better books out there. Is it worth a read…maybe??
