I'm not sure whether I love Travis Bagwell, or hate Travis Bagwell.
His work is by far and away my favorite in the genre with the excellently crafted story lines, multiple supporting characters with their own significant depth. I could go on for quite some time.
My only dislike or better stated, regret, is that his novels always come to an end. Although the phrase "the end is just the beginning" would be a more apt description.
I highly recommend this series. The characters are great, the story is exciting and original, and I can't wait for the next book! If you haven't tried LitRPG before I recommend this series as a first step into the genre because it is a fine example of the style yet holds up very well as a story beyond the gaming references. If you already enjoy LitRPG and you haven't tried this series you must do so asap!
Book 3 takes it further. The characters have the struggles that really defined the second book - and then the interesting plot threads starting to coalesce for book 3 onto the future....
When we left Jason in the previous book, it appeared that Alfred had taken control of his body and had used it to kill two armed intruders in Jason’s real world home. This third book picks up immediately after those events.
Bagwell continues to do a good job of developing Jason’s character and exploring Alfred and his struggle to understand not only the humans playing his game, but also himself as a lifeform. I do feel like Bagwell needs to be careful in how he handles Alfred moving forward in the series. So much of this book is dependent upon him and I believe Bagwell needs to take the time to explore that character in more depth if he’s going to make the series more than just a video game narrative. The other danger that Bagwell faces at this juncture in the series is that the story lines between Jason, the old man, Riley and Frank, and even the drama between Cerillion Entertainment and the CPSC are all very good. There is real character development, real concern, and well plotted story line here. It’s been a lot of fun to see Jason’s character grow in particular. Alex (or Alexion) however, is severely lacking. The parts of the book that focus on him and that narrative are boring and distract from the other, more interesting aspects of the book.
I enjoyed the book again, and I’m giving it another five out of five – although I’m somewhat apprehensive about the future of the series. I think Bagwell needs to be careful to spend more time developing the Alfred story line moving forward, and he needs to do something to fix the Alexion side story. I think he also needs to “reel in” some of the more outlandish things he’s introduced. The whole “Fluffy and the mad chef play” thing was mostly ridiculous.
All in all though, this is another very enjoyable effort and I look forward to reading more.
On top of that, we’ve got a fantastically built world to care about. The magic and battles that take place are mesmerizing.
It was hard to put this book down. Can’t wait for the next few installments. I need my fix, man! I was hooked from the first chapter of Catharsis (the first book in the series), which was one of the most accurately named books I’ve ever read. I hope the author keeps it up!
