Summary

Fight, survive, adapt, and rely only on yourself.

That is Derek’s creed and what's got him through the System Integration on Earth.

Everything changed when the System came. Cute bunnies and beautiful butterflies became savage killing machines. Then the Invaders arrived with a single goal: to obtain ownership of this new habitable planet.

War has raged ever since.

None of this mattered much to Derek, aside from making living a little more perilous. He mostly kept to himself. He was the weird guy who owned a cabin and who occasionally came into town for a drink and light conversation. After System Integration, that didn’t change much—he only got stronger.

After years of fighting monsters and Invaders alone, he’s become quite adept at surviving. Who needs others to get in the way or worry about?

Until one day, Derek goes against his better judgement. He decides to lend some help on a mission that doesn’t seem too hard.... He should have stuck to being alone....

Don’t miss the start of this new LitRPG series starting on Earth a few years post System Integration. But the adventure doesn’t stop there. This overpowered protagonist will quickly find himself on a new world, with a new System, providing a unique combination of the isekai, LitRPG apocalypse, and slice-of-life genres. He may even make a few friends along the way.

not a lone wolf but a babysitter

the description makes the main character sound like a lone wolf that makes the mistake of helping someone and gets burned for it and that part is true what it skips is that he then basically adopts a child who is super whiney and has a hero complex I will never understand why authors create a strong character and then shackle them to what is a basicly just a dead wait that occasionally serves as a damsle now I will be fair I haven't finished the book yet but If it carrys on the way I suspect it will I won't bother if and when I do I will update the review to reflect that

Overpowered and under-staffed

System Change by #SunriseCV. You think some people have a power complex? Well this MC has an over-power complex. When the protagonist enters the #SystemUniverse the reader is made immediately aware of his strength... and arrogance.

However, this badass-strongman combo does create an excellent hero. The world 🌎 building is second to none and creative as hell: from over-powered monsters, resembling killer dogs 🐕 and butterflies 🐛to a novel level-up system. An excellent debut 📚 4/5🌟 #BookReview

A Solid Start

I really enjoyed this book, it's a bit different than the usual "system comes to Earth progressive fantasy". The world building is good, the narration is good and the characters are also good. (I know too many goods!)
I am looking forward to the next release.

Enjoyable

Not quite what I expected but it was good. I actually liked the main and supporting characters. The start of the story is a bit of a mess but it quickly evens out. Looking forward to the next book.

Good and a unique story

Sometimes the book tries to be funny and misses by a lot. The biggest issue I have is that the narration is really bad and does not do it justice

There needs to be a lot more polish ti the story but hopefully the author gets better

Legitimately Good LitRPG

Ok, so first off, if you don't like LitRPG where the Main Character is "overpowered" for this first book, then this is likely not for you. The MC isn't untouchable and does have their fair share of difficulties, but considering the MC is actually competent and doesn't take many "dumb/illogical" risks? It rarely feels as if the MC is truly challenged, but there's clearly room for that to change in the future.

If you like an MC that's competent and not making consistently idiotic mistakes that doesn't match his stats or character solely for "plot" reasons? Then this is definitely for you.

Also, if you like other characters in a book/series not consistently making dumb mistakes/decisions and an MC that doesn't put up with people making dumb mistakes? This is also for you.

Stats are listed at what I'd consider an average rate for a LitRPG. Not too much, usually, and not too little.

Finally, the VA performance by Adam Verner was fantastic for this.

TLDR: MC is definitely OP, but also competent and not making illogical decisions solely for "plot" purposes most of the time. Other characters are also not illogical morons for "plot" usually. VA performance is fantastic. This is worth the credit if you're into progression/litRPG fantasy genre.

Reviews lie hard

He is not some pragmatic, smart character. He spends a lot of time with this whiny kid with an insanely annoying voice. He whines about not doing stupid things for random people that would get him killed then does it. It’s annoying and is like 20 chapters of the MC floundering while new settings are introduced. I wasted a credit because I thought the MC would have his own story and maybe develop as a character. Not to watch someone whine while being led by secondary characters. And why is he whispering secrets out loud. Can he not think in his head? You suck Derek.

This is bad, really bad

The weak writing is made even worse by the bad narration. Narrator uses a condescending and whiny tone through out and the MC is a Jerk.

There's no real story. The author just slung some words together and called it a book.

The quality of the work does not match where the LitRPG Genre has evolved to.

This book is annoying and a waste of time for anyone that has listened anything of quality on Audible.

It makes no sense for this to have gotten so many high ratings.

Hoping for a character arc

This guy pisses me off more than entertains me. Pretty selfish in most thoughts that pass through his mind. Lies for no reason & pretty much insane

Very fun and refreshing.

I have a few pet peeves that have almost become trope in many of the fantasy, and specifically litrpg, book settlings. These include

- Stupid MC's. The authors are thinking they are adding "suspense" by making characters make stupid decisions that put them in a bind when all that does is add frustration. Humanity is full of stupid, write about the exception.
- MC's are thrown into situations that are always worst case and only plot armor saves them, destroying any sense of strength (whether it is in decision making or capabilities) the MC could have shown.
- Harem's! OMG! Get laid! The juvenile fantasy harem crap is destroying the litrpg genre. Seriously if you can't write, or have writers block, take a break. If you must waste digital paper, put that your book has harem crap in the summary BEFORE I BUY OR WASTE MY TIME READING OR LISTENING TO THE BOOK. Otherwise, you go on my do not buy, do not even consider list of Authors. If you consider your juvenile smut volumes "your style" FFS warn me and I will not waste time or money on you but may consider future books as you have notified me up front. If you don't, I consider you a thief, I don't care if that is fair or not. You stole my time and money.

I have purchased over 1400 audibles and many more kindle books. Write any of the above and trick me into listening or reading your juvenile fantasy BS, and you have lost my business, forever.

However, this book had none of these. The MC starts OP and is stated as such. It's just overall fun.

Just wow.

I am a voracious, BookReader, and one of the things that annoys me more than anything else. It is when somebody creates a character, and then ham fist all kinds of storylines or whatever, and then just makes the character flip and flop, whichever way the story decides to go. Is it sincerely aggravating.

Enter this book, which is nothing like that. The main character is exactly who they are from beginning to finish, and they aren’t stupid for no reason. The story flows well, and it is just incredibly well written.

The only problem I have with this book is the fact that you don’t have five or six of them out already! Thank you very much and I look forward to the next one.

meh

boring and I don't care about the mc its like there should of been a book or three before this one and the author couldn't be bothered to tell a story to get me to be invested in this character or the universe. basically everything in this story is solved or overcome super easy barely an inconvenience its like buying a new game entering the cheats for overpowered stats and cheesing your first playthrough because the HUGE time skip from the prolog 3 years of character development skipped over so this is just twelve and a half hours of meh.

Never have I ever.

Never have I ever hated an MC more than before reading this book. Never have I ever wanted to gnash my teeth in anger over something before this book.
I have had my fair share of opinions about books in the past, and some books have made me angry. But all of them were pretty firmly grounded within the fantasy universe.
This MC made a choice that valued his potential state of harm (even though the MC is firmly in the OP category) over someone else’s immediate need. And when I say immediate, i don’t mean it was a split second decision. The MC knowingly deprived a wife and 13 year old daughter of their father who valiantly fought to protect his village and family. The MC then proceeds to converse with them after his death; without guilt or shame. No one can know the value of a human life, because we don’t know what they might accomplish in the future even if it’s indirectly.
It gets better though (not). Even before the events that led to the father’s dire situation, the MC took his sweet time getting to the village(s) even knowing the imminent danger they were likely to be in.
While i’m not saying the MC has to be some hero and selflessly going around saving people left and right, but to have the power, capability, and time to help someone right in front of you and not oblige is no better than a vile cretin undeserving of the air they breathe.

Lots of room for improvement

SunriseCV imagined what could have been and interesting litRPG story and decided to take a leisurely approach to writing it. The MC, Derek, is a self-absorbed OP player who ends up in a different RPG system realm through a freak accident. While he was OP in his previous realm, he finds the new realm incompatible with the "system engine" in such a way that he is super-OP'd in the new one. The thing is, Derek is written as an arrogant player, at times intimidating others, to making unfunny wisecracks to people he decides to befriend and even making his teenage apprentice the butt of his insults. In all, he's not a very interesting character.

Adam Verner's performance made listening even more difficult where most conversions of the town folks come across as pleating and whiny.

I very seldom rate books as low as this one since I know how difficult writing can be, I can't convince myself to give it more stars than I have.

While I'm entitled to return the title for a credit refund, I had listened to the end. However, I'll not continue with the series.
