Together, MrsKeller and Lance travel and try to escape this world of Discordia. Will they ever make it back to the real world?
This book was very unique; I'll definitely give it that. I'm a huge fan of anything video game related, because I find the whole idea of a virtual reality really intriguing. Hey, it is the 21st Century. I've actually never heard of this book before. I picked it up at a library book sale and I was immediately intrigued by the synopsis. I'm glad that I actually bought it.
The characters were pretty cool. I really liked MrsKeller because he knew so much about the world. You could definitely tell that he was serious about his gaming. I also found it really cool that they found another person, Rayva, who might've possibly been originally from the normal world. The only thing is, she's been in the world for so long that she probably forgot about where she actually came from. She's been living like a peasant for as long as she can remember.
Another really interesting thing about this book was the gamer's manual.Read more ›
His zombie sorcerer, also named LANCE, has already reached level 17 with the help of his hobgoblin friend, MRSKELLER, and the two spend many hours flirting and going on quests. Things get even better when a level 60 zombie named THEGREATONE invites both LANCE and MRSKELLER to join in a guild dedicated to leveling up newer players, and then recruits them both for a dungeon quest.
Even though THEGREATONE seems to take the role playing a little too seriously, MRSKELLER points out that they can always leave the guild and ignore him if he turns weird on them.
But things turn a little too weird when, while running from the dungeon in the game, Lance wakes up in a strange land with blood on his hands, face-to-face with real life versions of MRSKELLER and the THEGREATONE.
Once Lance and MrsKeller get over their initial shock, TheGreatOne explains that he has pulled them both into the real world of Discordia, the land in turmoil that inspired the game. Lance and MrsKeller both have the innate ability to transport themselves to the eleventh dimension, and TheGreatOne now needs them to go on a real quest before he will tell them how to get back.
Left with little choice, Lance and MrsKeller embark on their quest, translating their knowledge of the game for use in the real world of Discordia as best they can. When they team up with a runaway slave named Rayva, they realize that they have limited time, because Discordia may claim them forever, along with Lance's humanity.Read more ›
The story is told in third person and it really feels that way- there's a distance between the reader and the characters and so I didn't feel like there was much depth in the characters; it's definitely more of a plot-driven novel than character-driven, which can be very good for reluctant readers, but not necessarily for avid readers (unless of course it's your preference).
I thought the ending was pretty rushed and everything came to an abrupt end in the last 15-20 pages. The story ends on a big cliffhanger, which definitely leaves me wanting more. Overall, I'd say it's an above average novel but nothing to write home about. If you're into fantasy and/or MMOs, this is the book for you. For people new to MMOs though, there is an introduction and user manual plus glossary in the front and back of the book, respectively.
