Editorial Reviews

Review

Amazon BEST-SELLER in multiple categories!


A Breath of Fresh Air for LITRPG: One of the best of the LITRPG genre I've read in a while. Well balanced with good character development, game mechanics, and plot. Most LITRPG novels now a days are filled plot holes, spelling errors, ridiculous harem themes, and poor grammar. This book was a breath of fresh air. Well worth the read. (Amazon Reviewer)


...one of the most engaging books that I have read in months if not years. I truly had a blast turning page by page  (Amazon Reviewer)


Amazing Novel, Must Read: I didn't want to stop reading. The litRPG system feels beautifully woven into the world and its inhabitants feel like they've truly been living with it all of their lives. The story itself is amazing and well written with a great cast of characters to support it. Do yourself a favor and pick up this novel.  (Goodreads Reviewer)


Really enjoyed this. Clearly well written, good and interesting litrpg system with a hint of the cultivation aspects to come. Plenty of option for growth and wide world breadth, interesting characters rather than just an MC. Look forward to the 2nd book!  (Goodreads Reviewer)


I loved this book! It was a very fun read that with a different take on litrpg, I cannot wait to read the next one in the series!  (Amazon Reviewer)

A. F. Kay is the pen name of Ripht, a monk still wandering the Crypt of Dalnir looking for the Lumpy Goo that refuses to drop his Fighting Baton. Some of AFK's best memories happened online, and the Divine Apostasy, a LitRPG series, is his attempt to relive those days in some small part. He hopes you find a piece of yourself in this series and join him on the journey.
