      This is an amazingly villian story. The characters have depth and real goals as villains. Interesting read!

      Hey I've just gotta say, this is a must read. The beginning really grabs your attention. Lately I've been skipping dialogues because it was too cliche and I already knew that information. 

      But the way the story doesn't focus that much on the game stats and focuses more on actions scenes and character development is the best.

      By the way the author is thoughtful of us by making the stats as a spoiler button, that way only those interested in looking at the character's stats would look at it.

      It starts strong, with an evil and slightly crazy MC, and a hero who is getting corrupted. It goes well for a number of chapters. Then it slowly derails, as I see it. Stupid decisions are made, deus ex machina appears, then there are chapters from different POV that go nowhere. And I don't like character development in the later chapters.


      The necromancer sees the errors of her ways and decides to redeem herself.


      Also, I have my doubts about the system, MC should be much stronger with skills she has.

      I'd say that the start is 5 and the end (chapter ~60) is 3, so 4 on average.

      there is a lack of consistency with the RPG aspects, the characters are a little bit shallow. Overall, it was fun, but a little frustrating. I'll be moving along to find another LitRPG to read now that phase 1 is over, though.
