Seriously, if I could, I would love to play and experience Retha for myself-- or rather, Thare as it is-- except in these books I already feel as if I am! Kitten Lovemuch is the most heartwarming, endearing, and hilarious character that belongs in Kitty's books. You have to admit, not a lot of characters would so well tolerate being pranked into a useless player with extremely ridiculous skills and horrifically terrible luck. Nor would they so easily lead such a motley team of interesting companions. For real, the banter is almost too much.
Then there's Solus Miles. Still not quite enough of him as I liked, but I'm glad that Kitty hasn't made the annoying mistake of replacing the other main characters with the love interest. Even so, he played a major role in this one, and his interactions with Kit were very... ha.
And Kit? Her luck. I mean, no, no awesome fantastic overpowering skill for this unfortunate player. Everything Kit can do is multiplied into basic absurdity. Usually getting a winged warrior as a pet is incredibly amazing... unless you're Kit and have the worst luck ever, because then you're stuck with Pax. Man, I loved that part.
However, the ending is a bit bittersweet as we may be missing a few of our favorite characters in the next book. Not quite sure yet, but luckily The Revived is coming out this month and I plan to be among the first to find out! I'm excited! Great work, Kitty!
I loved: Kit's sense of humor and snark, getting to know Solus Miles, and watching the ways that Kit and her team could work together to outsmart the game against all odds. I have reread the ending of this book at least 3 times!
The pacing of this book was a little slow for me, but the ending was worth it! I found out that the series will have 4 books, and that helps me set my expectations better. I am excited that there are two books left, because I do want more (desperately), and I am not ready to leave Retha yet.
Whether you are into video games or not, I think this is a great series. The setting really comes to life, and I could relate to the characters. I especially love Kit with her snark and sense of humor. I can't wait to see what the rest of the series brings!
Content: clean (no language, no kissing, video game action/violence)
While I'm not a gamer by any means, I still enjoyed both this book and the first one in the series. The main characters are stuck in a virtual reality game and have to go through all sorts of game-related levels and adventures to get out. It is hilariously funny, and I can't wait for the next book in this series.
The only thing I wasn't sure I liked was some of the ending. I have a feeling the next book is going to be a bit bitter sweet as some of the main characters from the first two books might not be returning in later books. I've grown really attached to all of them!
But back to this series, The Desperate Quest is even better than The Luckless. The storyline did not disappoint. She concisely explained terms that us non-gamers wouldn't understand. Its humorous and poignant. Well done, Ms. Sohma!
