Ritualist (The Completionist Chronicles, #1)

The decision to start a new life is never an easy one, but for Joe the transition was far from figurative. Becoming a permanent addition to a game world, it doesn't take long to learn that people with his abilities are actively hunted. In fact, if the wrong people gained knowledge of what he was capable of, assassins would appear in droves. In his pursuit of power, Joe fights alongside his team, completes quests, and delves into the mysteries of ...

    20.3.2018 - 4*Líbí se svět Krouta. Je barevný a živý a slibuje překvapení. Ritualist mě bavil a patří k lepším litRPG, na které jsem narazila. Zároveň mi ale něco chybí. Možná mi jen nesedí protagonista - Joe byl vojenský medik, propána, ale občas se choval jako dítě. Stejně bych hned skočila po pokračování, kdyby bylo k dispozici. Hold, budu si muset počkat. ^^

    First i was thinking "Oh god, not another generic LitRPG Book", but luckily this one ended up as a good book with some refreshing new ideas. I like the Class of Ritualist in general, its a nice idea that you have to hide your own class or suffer drawbacks. There seems to be always something going on without becoming an intangled mess of storylines.For those who also liked Dungeon Born - Its nice that our favorite overgrown mutated Bunnies make an...

    Wow. Great bookGreat book. Good twist on the normally combat focused litrpg books. Instead of city building, he is building personal power. I love the completionist persona as well.
  • Bolajide Adeyoye
    Kroooouuuttt!!!!I swear this author and D.Arand are always causing me trouble. Seriously, would it be so much trouble to be a little more mediocre and run of the mill? I try to go through life with a baseline level of comfortable meh. Then I read your books and I end up in good mood all day and it just makes my whole week feel askew ....Kudos to the author for this book, the characters were likeable, the world was familiar but fresh enough not to...

    Well done It was a little cheesy (by design), but a refreshing take on the litRPG genre. I like how Krout really digs into the game mechanics and questing. I feel like that's something that recent entrants to the genre have been avoiding for some reason. Give me stats, make the protagonist OP, and feel free to skip excessive exposition! I wanna play a game in my mind, dangit. Anyway, another great book from Dakota Krout!
  • Erin Janice Madden
    Dakota Krout is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. 6 stars!This book is amazing. This is how you start a series people! I love litrpg novels and this book was written perfectly. There is rich character development and the perfect amount of detail with the back stories. I stayed up all night just to finish this book....I just couldn't put it down. I highly recommend the dungeon core series as well. Can't wait for the next book!
  • Shane Billingsley
    Awesome! I loved this book. It was so entertaining and very well written. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys litrpg. And anyone else actually!
  • Tim Metra
    Good litrpgThis book is a great addition to the litrpg genre. The only disappointing part of this book is that now I have to wait for the rest of the story!
  • Brett
    Great job!The first few chapters were very confusing but once the main story started it was a fantastic book. I would recommend it highly.
  • Skrunch
    I had trouble putting this book down.
  • Brett Zabriskie
    Addictive! Such a fun read!!Binged the whole thing in two days! Loved it, and can't wait for another in this series. Be sure to read the divine dungeon series too! Such a fun author!
  • Nathan
    Solid beginning to a new series.I finished the book ready and eager to begin the next. It’s looking like I’ll be enjoying this series as much as Divine Dungeon.
  • Alexander Hoste
    An exciting new seriesThis book is one of the best books I have read in months.It takes a slightly unique and tounge in cheek view on the cyber punk genre.The characters are great and feel real. The progression in the book I great but it also does not feel like it comes too easily.Overall definitely worth reading.
  • Heath
    Good Read. A LitRPG story. A new class opportunity was selected. Hidden from others. The magic school has its hidden restrictions and requirements. Looking forward to the next book.
  • Russell Gray
    Great start to a new series by one of the best authors writing in the Litrpg genre today. The main character is a likable every-man type and the tone of the story contains the right amount of humor (for me, at least). The pacing is great and I never felt like what I was reading was filler...which seems to be a problem in the genre at the moment.Highly recommended for all readers whether they are dipping their toes into litrpg for the first time o...
  • Luke Firth
    RitualistOk. This is a seriously good book and a perfect starting point for people who want to get into the LITRPG genre, not too many gaming terms, everything fully explained and all the stats and descriptions are on point. The story is well thought out and perfectly plays out, the secondary characters dont really have much of a fleshed out background but there is enough to there to know about them and, I'm hoping, will get a bit more devoted ti...
  • Alexander R
    This book was quite refreshing to read because the author does a really good job of covering all the game mechanics and story.I have been looking for another good book since finishing book 7 of the chaos seed series and have not found another until this one. The author does such a good job of developing game play mechanics experience, skills, classes, monsters, spells, and still does a good job on developing the story and characters.very refreshi...
  • Tyler
    Another a hit from KroutI love his dungeon stories and I'm excited that he made a litRPG as well. I'm interested to see how this developed and to see the experiments that Joe can create as well as the development of the lore which could potentially fill numerous books with the expansion of the game. I enjoyed seeing some of his ideas bleeding into this novel and I thought he did a good job introducing new abilities and such at a good rate but did...
  • Merric
    Everything I want in a litrpg So great! Excellent mechanics and an awesome world. The leveling system is interesting and so are the abilities of the main character
  • Devan
    AmazingSuch a fun book. It’s crazy that after you read so many mediocre books you start to lower your standards and think these aren’t so bad. Until you become lucky enough to stumble across a gem like this one. I loved the authors dungeon series and this one is just as awesome. Loved the tomato analogy to explain character stats. Loved that while the MC has epic powers he also has epic handicaps that he must overcome. So many little details ...
  • Arthur Hayes
    Great book!I enjoyed every moment of this book and my only regret is it only lasted an evening. I look forward to the next title and serously recommend this book!
  • Winston Allen
    A true litrpg and a damn good one to boot!This is a great foray into the more RPG side of litrpg for a dungeon core author and what a romp! I will not be spoiling this book at all with any info about it. Instead I will say that it is a true, litrpg, engaging characters, awesome classes, well thought out mechanics and light intrusiveness (i.e. no giant skill panels though I personally don't mind those). A fan of Kong, Mahanenko, or Bagwell style l...
  • Keebler
    Well written LitrpgQuality of an actual book, not the usual fanfic that plagues the genre. Hopefully this author gets the recognition they deserve despite all the bought reviews on horrible litrpg books tainting the genre.
  • Tom
    Perfect, I love the concept and executionTo avoid spoilers i will have to keep this brief. As I said, amazing concept and execution. This will be a series to watch for sure.
  • Jake
    A fun read with many fun referencesRight out of the gate we're beaten over the head with some obvious references from both the author's past work (Divine Dungeon) as well as some real world people and situations. There were some other references throughout the book, but as a lover of the Divine Dungeon series, I had some giggles.The story starts out as so many LitRPGs do in that someone is trapped in an MMO for some reason. Once inside, things ju...
  • Seth Silvernail
    MC who uses his brain! Fun LitRPG!What a fun new LitRPG series to join the genre! Interesting world setup for the MC and his personal story in it and some fun series spanning plot hook action.I love also that the MC takes the cleric/healer route (sort of heh) but that in this game world cross-class skills are perfectly acceptable so has potential for fun mixed skill sets. First time I’ve read of an MC truly living the fact that he has low physi...
  • Mike Goodman
    Outstanding Story so Cal can Wait I want More Joe I really enjoyed this story of a combat medic playing a RPG game as a cleric who finds a book on ritual magic that anyone can use if they have the ingredients. The Mage College approval of any magic outside their control labels him a rogue. That song the Wanderer keeps playing through my mind every time they're mentioned. Idk Mr Musk involvement. I do see a spin off after a few more books in this ...
  • Jeff Dunton
    Great book!I can't say enough good things about this book, so I Wont. It is truly an excellent piece of gamelit, litrpg whatever you call it nowadays. If you are new to the genre, its a great place to start. If you are an old head like me, you should know Dakota by now and aren't guna read this anyway. Hats off to you Sir for writing this
  • Dillon
    Great litrpg!I love this genre and this is the best book 1 of any of them I have read! Good job! Great progression, cool world, cool characters and good plot!
