This story is based on a premsis which you might think isn't that orginal. I don't think it is giving anything away (as it's in the Books description) that the story is based on kids getting drawn into a fantasy computer game. What you realise, as you read it, is that the author goes into thoughts and details that less considered books just overlook. This doesn't bog down the story, but adds a realism that lifts it out of the run of the mill YA stories and makes it a worth while read.

I am onto the second in the series and am looking forward to what happens next! If you didn't go onto the second book, I think you would be happy with the rounded out story in the first book.... but you certianly know there are more to come...

When I first saw this series I could not believe that the entire series was free! (At the time of my reading) So I downloaded all books and started with this first book.

Two teens, Phoenix and Jade struggle in their family life and are stoked to dive into an unreleased new MMORPG fantasy game. As they play they discover that they are stuck! To their surprise and to Phoenix's chagrin any damage their avatar receives damages them. This pleases Phoenix who has always dreamed of doing this for real but Jade who understands that they could die (both digitally and physically) isn't too happy about the situation. Especially since they only have 7 lives!!! They discover that they have to beat 5 levels and the big bad evil sorcerer at the last level to leave the game and save their world from destruction. They struggle to understand what it is they have to do and make some good friends along the way which aid them in their journey. Can they do it?!

Such a pleasure to read even as an adult and I believe youth will find this book to be easy to read and enjoyable. No language or any other distasteful stuff (in game people do die). I would recommend this book to my own little cousins. This book and series is well worth the read. Please enjoy!

I was able to pick up Book 1 of the 80 AD series for free. It's 3,542 locations long.

80 AD refers to a computer game, being played by the two main characters. The game sounds a lot like Dark Age of Camelot, which I played years ago, except with live Romans, not dead ones. Or at least, the dead ones don't walk around yet.

The idea of players being in the game goes back a long time, but the author has put together a very readable and enjoyable story.

I was a bit irritated by the two main characters being stereotypical. The girl has never played a game before, and the boy is great at them. Probably because my wife has played MMO's as long as I have, but I just don't buy that stereotype any longer.

Jade and Phoenix. I really wish those weren't their real names. They just sound like character names. I'm willing to accept that Jade couldn't think of a character name, but I can guarantee that if Phoenix played computer RPG's, he had a stable of names that he would have picked from, and it probably wouldn't have been his own name. OR if did, that says a lot. Hmm, actually, that might fit the personality. OK - I withdraw that complaint.

It's interesting - Phoenix really annoys me. Jade is OK as a character, yet I find the whole works quite well. I'm not completely sure why - perhaps it's due to the two next main characters being so believable. There is also a very good use of the Command spell.

There are a couple of missing words, or words in the wrong order. One more edit run would help with that.

Loved the twist about the Jewel of Asgard. Loved the author forcing his characters to face how they were going to survive. The lack of toilet paper is one of the reasons I have no interest in time travel.

80AD level one The Jewel of Asgard by Aiki Flinthart

This novel reminded me of an MMORPG-oh wait-it really is an MMORPG. I think anyone hooked on those MMORPG's has often wondered what it would be like to be in the game-really in the game. If you're like me and you know that your avatars have all died at least 30 times or more then it's only a passing thought. One that you let go of really quickly.

Of course this one is a free one- in fact all five books are free- and that's all five levels. Of course we've all often thought about writing a book based on our favorite game and so here we have someone who has- well I think the game is made up- but it all works in the way expected. I'm a fan of Science Fiction but having delved into to MMORPG's I had to check these books out.

80AD is targeted to young adults but it's a pretty darn good story and its quite entertaining for all ages. There are two major characters Phoenix and Jade the to unsuspecting teens who will get trapped in the game. Phoenix builds his character out of his desire to escape from his stepfather's abrasive behavior. Phoenix needs something to take out his aggressions on so he creates a warrior. Jade doesn't fit in and has been hoping if she hides that the rest of here family her 6 older sisters will forget about her and leave her behind. When she gets that wish she finds herself with a free night and obtains permission to play the game on her father's computer. She is intelligent and knowledgeable about herbs and healing plants so of course she creates an Elvin halfbreed healer/magic Avatar.

The story starts with Long Baiyu - a prisoner below someones castle or keep- using magic as his last resort to possible escape.
