A stranger from space stuck on a strange fantasy planet. Paladins are supposed to exist in stories and games, right? That’s what galactic space smuggler Guy Sutherland thought too. Now he’s a Paladin. It started when he held an ancient sword, brimming with strange magic. Things got weird after that, like stat screens listing his nifty skills and attributes. He has no idea why, A stranger from space stuck on a strange fantasy planet. Paladins are supposed to exist in stories and games, right?

Things got weird after that, like stat screens listing his nifty skills and attributes. He has no idea why, but he’s not alone. Xanthe, one of the few shadow angels free from slavery, is experiencing something similar. A sword assigned Xanthe the class of a Blade Dancer and has given her enough charisma to charm anyone to her will. The planet of Faeheim is undergoing the same change. A wave of energy is changing the world, assigning classes and levels to the fae, turning animals into monsters, and spurring the empire to commit multiple atrocities. Atrocities the empire can’t risk people like Guy and Xanthe finding out. Cut off from his ship and the rest of the galaxy, Guy must survive on the gamified planet, level up, and learn what makes him and Xanthe special. Before the empire gets to them. There’s a reason Guy and Xanthe were chosen for this and if they don’t learn it soon, then a lot of people are going to get one-shotted by high-level imperial soldiers. Note: Contains graphic violence, adult language, explicit sexual content, and adult humor.

    I somehow missed that this book was more of a role-playing game than an actual fantasy story and gaming terms confuse me. As such, I felt a bit uncomfortable getting into it. It was a combination of RPG elements merging into a “real world” through a magical ancient sword apparently. Guy Sutherland was first affected when he held the ancient sword and strange gaming events happened, along with giving him new skills and attributes. A similar thing happened to Xanthe, a shadow angel. Her sword assi I somehow missed that this book was more of a role-playing game than an actual fantasy story and gaming terms confuse me.

Guy Sutherland was first affected when he held the ancient sword and strange gaming events happened, along with giving him new skills and attributes. A similar thing happened to Xanthe, a shadow angel. Her sword assigned her to the class of a Blade Dancer and likewise gave her special skills. (Sounding more like a game, right?) The two of them meet and seem destined to save the planet of Faeheim which is changing, assigning classes and levels to Fae, changing creatures into monsters, and making bad things happen. Apparently Guy and Xanthe are supposed to fix all this while something else tries to prevent that from happening. (It’s a sci-fi space story on steroids, I think.) I apologize for what is probably a nonsensical interpretation, but as mentioned, I have zero experience with games like that – obviously I am a reader of books and not a player of games. But there was a definite story line coming through my muddled thoughts, so give this book a chance. If gaming is part of your fun, I think you’ll like this very much.

    This story combined an RPG game with real life set in the future in a different galaxy Guy and Xanthe were going about their usual life when all of a sudden a sword ends up giving them powers and they end up on quests. Then things get really weird as they end up meeting and trying to figure out what is really going on. The story was intense, lots of action and fighting. There was a lot of heavy stats (RPG remember) but I was able to follow it up and I am not a gamer.

There was a lot of heavy stats (RPG remember) but I was able to follow it up and I am not a gamer. The story was more for adults but not too R or X rated. Not light hearted but it was fun and entertaining as it mixed the usual space story with the game style story pretty well. It was a crazy story with hidden secrets but fun.

    Eddie R. Hicks’ Star Paladin (Sword of Asteria, Book 1) is really well done LitRPG. I happen to like that genre as I’m a long time RPGer. Having said that, even if you’ve no idea what RPG actually stands for (it’s Role Playing Game: think Dungeons & Dragons), this book would still be extremely enjoyable as a rousing and truly well written space fantasy yarn, with a strong plot and really well crafted lead and supporting characters. As such it’s easy to highly recommend.

    Wanted to like but... I wanted to like this - interesting characters, setting and story but... holy god the pacing and lack of fine details on a lot of the mechanics just made it really hard to read. Mostly the pacing and the way it jumped between characters - all over the place in a really off putting way.

    Author: What the heck man? Even at the end of the book when there was a moment for things to settle down you still choose not to let the MC and his girl hook up? You messed up the genre of half LITRPG half harem in your story (getting close but not succeeding).

    Great story full of action and tense situations. The characters are well written and the storyline has plenty of twists.

    Just didn't quite come together. MC seemed half-assed to me, and overall it didn't rise above average. Just didn't quite come together. MC seemed half-assed to me, and overall it didn't rise above average.

    I got really tired of the ‘what’s going on? how does this work?’ stuff. Probably because I’ve read so many books like this.
