It is the year 2100 A.D., and humans have developed a virtual reality game with a realism level of 99%. Feng Lan, due to a bet with her twin brother, vows to succeed in playing the game without using her "female benefits." Due to this, she becomes the first and only female to play as a male character in "Second Life." As her infamy rises as a bloodthirsty warrior, can she keep her identity a secret from her real life acquaintances whom she has beaten up?
The story is great, but doesn't hold up to modern-day political correctedness and general morality standards. The first 7 volumes were pretty solid, but I think volume 8 and the epilogue were rather questionable in terms of how all the loose ends were 'tied up'. It feels very much like a rush-job. Furthermore, some suspension of disbelief is needed throughout to really enjoy it. Nonetheless, I was a big fan of the way sexism within gaming is portrayed. I loved the way that the characters and their relationships developed, MC obliviousness aside. I find that if you're looking for certain tropes - secret identity, VRMMORPGs, OP MCs, etc. - this is the novel to go to, because that's the sort of self-indulgent things I picked up and finished this novel for. Do not regret reading, although I regret the amount of time I needed to spend to finish it.
