Forest of Desire (The Alchemist Book #2) Book Review:

Is there anything better than a quiet life? Well, there's a quiet life surrounded by people you care about, people who love you in return, of course. But Tailyn Vlashich knew nothing of the kind. His parents had died years before, the townspeople stayed well away from the god's favorite, and his guardian just wanted to be rid of him. That was the setting when Tailyn was again placed on the road to uncertainty, beset by terrifying lixes, and hounded by a harsh trainer it was impossible to please. All he can do is bear up and keep pushing forward in the hopes that his wishes will be granted. As legend has it, somewhere ahead lies the Forest of Desire, a place capable of bringing to life one's every wish. For example, returning Valia Levor, Tailyn's betrothed, who was kidnapped. Oh, and does anyone know why Forian Tarn still isn't back from his trip?

City of the Dead (The Alchemist Book #1): LitRPG Series Book Review:

There are whole anthologies of stories out there about what humankind does when a game enters their world. But what about when they're living in one where a game arrived thousands of years before? What if they're the survivors of a bloody struggle, having fought for and earned their place on the planet? Tailyn Vlashich was a young nobody far away from all those grander issues. All he cared about was one thing: making his way through a harsh world where the emperor, evil foes, and an impartial god held sway. And the god, of course, demanded nothing less than that all things were done in accordance with its divine will.

Tartila Mine (The Alchemist Book #5) Book Review:

What are you supposed to do when the whole world joins forces against you? Give up, find some hole to duck into, and beg for your life to be spared? But even despite how obvious the answer to that question might be, many an adult had been dashed on the rocks twelve-year-old Tailyn Vlashich was supposed to climb. Ahead of him lay a secret laboratory belonging to the ancients; behind was a horde headed by his sworn enemy. But through it all, Tailyn had those who loved him, those who believed in him, and that support was enough to carry him to the ends of the earth.

Tears of Alron (The Alchemist #3) Book Review:

The Magic Academy... An institution shrouded in mystery and secrets. People from all over the different empires want nothing more than to enroll, get their hands on the knowledge stored there, become those most respected in the world-mages. Tailyn Vlashich was one of the lucky few admitted without going through the entrance exams. And once inside, he had training, the arena, lessons, and an interesting take on what had happened three thousand years to look forward to, all capped off by a dynamic labyrinth that came with a chance to sit down with the provost. After all, that's who holds the key to the secret of the dragon's blood. But how are you supposed to find time to study when your mentor has a problem he can't handle on his own? Once again, Tailyn faces a road very much unlike the noisy halls of the academy, life itself reprising its role as his trusty teacher.

Video Game Plotline Tester (The Dark Herbalist Book #1) LitRPG Series Book Review:

The Dark Herbalist is a cyberpunk LitRPG series currently comprising three novels, all of them Amazon bestsellers. In a typical megalopolis of the near future, lush skyscrapers of the business center give way to drab apartment blocks housing the poorest of the poor: third-world refugees, street gangs and criminal overlords. That's where the story's protagonists live: Timothy and his handicapped sister Valeria who'd lost her legs in a car accident many years ago. Timothy finds a job as a video game plotline tester for Boundless Realm, a giant corporation producing the wildly popular MMORPG game of the same name. The character assigned to him is a goblin herbalist, of all things; his task - to find something that would make this combination interesting for potential future players. There're no guides or manuals to assist him in his work which plunges him into wild untrodden locations far from civilization. His sister Valeria offers her help, creating her own character in order to help her brother. As the two log into the game, they start acting on a hunch, often unwisely, absurdly even. But their abilities to think out of the box allows them to achieve considerable heights - so much so that they attract the attention of both the corporation's bosses and the criminal gangs of their neighborhood. They make new faithful friends (among players as well as some quirky NPCs) and acquire countless followers of their video feeds. They now have lots of fans - and some very powerful enemies. As Timothy realizes he can't stop halfway on this road to success, he plunges himself into more reckless adventures, each one more dangerous than the one before it, trying to attract the audience's attention to his Goblin Herbalist character and make him stand out from the hundreds of millions of other players. The corporation's bosses keep a close eye on his progress. The problem is, such an interest from the powers that be comes with strings attached. Their outward friendliness and respect might result in a totally different set of problems. Deadly problems.

Barliona. A virtual world jam-packed with monsters, battles - and predictably, players. Millions of them come to Barliona, looking forward to the things they can't get in real life: elves and magic, dragons and princesses, and unforgettable combat. The game has become so popular that players now choose to spend months online without returning home. In Barliona, anything goes: you can assault fellow players, level up, become a mythical hero, a wizard or a legendary thief. The only rule that attempted to regulate the game demanded that no player was allowed to feel actual pain. But there's an exception to every rule. For a certain bunch of players, Barliona has become their personal hell. They are criminals sent to Barliona to serve their time. They aren't in it for the dragons' gold or the abundant loot. All they want is to survive the virtual inferno. They face the ultimate survival quest.
