Sarah Lin Books- LitRPG, Epic Fantasy & More

Sarah Lin, an accomplished author, weaves intricate tales across various fantasy genres. Her works resonate with readers, drawing them into imaginative worlds filled with magic, adventure, and complex characters. Whether exploring modern cultivation systems in Street Cultivation, unraveling mysteries in The Weirkey Chronicles, or delving into epic fantasy realms in The Brightest Shadow, Sarah Lin’s storytelling captivates and leaves a lasting impression.

She recently launched Deathseed, and in doing so ran a promotion that I discovered on Reddit to give away all 7 of The Weirkey Chronicles in celebration of the launch. That is where I first became aware of Sarah’s work. I’m not sure if the promotion is still running (I don’t think so?) but I’m not able to confirm since I already have all of the Weirkey chronicle books in my kindle library.

New Game Minus

Genre: LitRPG


Summary assisted with AI since I have not yet read this book series – If there are any glaring mistakes, please let me know in the comments so that I may fix them ASAP! – Devon


New Game Minus is a complete trilogy by Sarah Lin. The story begins with Bloodwraith, who considers himself an effective villain until a single adventurer destroys his entire lair. In a desperate move, Bloodwraith switches bodies with the adventurer and discovers that his world is built on lies. Alien beings from another dimension use his reality as a game, and now he’s one of them. The catch? Bloodwraith has no experience as an adventurer; his new body excels only at physical combat.

Street Cultivation is a captivating series by Sarah Lin. In this modern world, qi (life force energy) serves as currency. The era of wandering martial artists and secluded masters is over. Instead, power is wielded by corporations, modernized martial arts sects, and governments. Those at the bottom of society struggle as second-class citizens in a world where power is a commodity.

Genre: Epic Fantasy


Summary assisted with AI since I have not yet read this book series – If there are any glaring mistakes, please let me know in the comments so that I may fix them ASAP! – Devon


 The Brightest Shadow is an Epic Fantasy series by Sarah Lin. The world of Myros is split between two species: humans and mansthein—a different humanoid species often derogatorily referred to as “death spawn” by humans. The arrival of the Hero disrupts the delicate balance.

To take her place as a full warrior of her tribe, Tani embarks on a journey across the vast grasslands of the Chorhan Expanse. Her goal extends beyond a mere ritual journey; she seeks a solution to the impending war threatening her people. Legends tell of monsters attempting to conquer the world, and the mansthein are at the center of this conflict. As warriors clash and zealots on both sides hold firm to their beliefs, Tani’s quest for peace unfolds alongside a cast of intriguing characters, each with their own motivations with morals in various shades of gray.
