Combining the traditions of computer role-playing games with SciFi and fantasy literary elements, LitRPG’s are an ideal marriage of two seemingly different nerdy worlds. If you’ve never taken the leap into the LitRPG genre, don’t worry — Towers of Heaven: A LitRPG Adventure by Cameron Milan is a great place to start, and he just recently released Book 3 this past Monday!
The Towers of Heaven series begins with the miraculous appearance of six massive, hundreds-of-feet tall towers scattered across planet Earth, each boasting a portal at its base that invites anyone brave enough to enter. Inside these Towers of Heaven, author Cameron Milan describes an assortment of imaginative monsters, treasure, and various superhuman powers to be acquired. But it’s not all fun and games; the Towers of Heaven are anything but benevolent. Come year 2083, there are only a handful of survivors in the wake of waves of malicious monstrous attacks on Earth, all insidiously originating from the towers.
In a final struggle to regain control, remaining Earthlings are forced to challenge the Final Floor, knowing full well none of them may come out alive.
Cameron Milan’s following is small but mighty, with all three of his books receiving hundreds of ratings over four-stars on Amazon.
