Regicide (The Completionist Chronicles, #2)Regicide by Dakota Krout
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Funny title, but slightly misleading.

I mean, sure, a few kings are killed in this fun LitRPG, but to be fair, the true plot doesn't really have anything to do with it.

The one real reason anyone should be coming to this book, or this series, is the sheer, unadulterated joy you have when leveling up. It's all about skills mastery, finding some of the most obscure arcane quests, and getting on a war footing with a ton of low-level player characters that includes a full war.

Oh, I love LitRPG. It's what Ready Player One could have been if we had gotten rid of all the whining and focused on RPG game nostalgia rather than '80s nostalgia. Fortunately, these extremely fun books make up for all that by being pure candy.

All those years of playing RPG games are finally returning dividends.
