The game storyline, is mostly action, adventure MMO stuff. But something that the author is able to do, is make that game stuff relevant to the real world storyline. Mace wants to upload his mind to the game, giving him the possibility of living there as long as the electricity in their geothermal powered facility stays up, possibly centuries. But to do that, he needs to achieve a level of synchronicity with the game by training his mind to think of the game like it’s the real world. This gives the story the excuse to have both characters play the game. But what the author does that I think is interesting, is that he keeps the theme of survival in the game, at least for the drow storyline. In addition to that, the game itself notices that all the players have gone missing and tries to figure out how to adjust, even going so far as to give quests to Shari to bring players back to their world.
Overall, I had a great time reading this. Though I’ll admit, I was already partial to the apocalypse survival genre.
Score: 8 out of 10
Dave out did himself in the opening story of this series. This book had more twists and turns then I ever saw coming. It had me on the edge of my seat until the very last page.
I truly enjoyed the character development in 5he book. It took a scared young man and showed just how rough and scary a apocalypse can be if ur alone.......
The gaming aspects of the book were a very refreshing take. I enjoyed that the mc wasnt overpowered and has to earn "it" instead of being handed God like abilities.
This is where spoilers come in......
The interaction between mace and the female lead were spot on. I like that she didnt just fall into his arms but is making him work to get it. The interplay between them is nothing short of comical.
The take on mace being a drow is great. I love seeing a not very used race being used and described incredibly and makes you want to play one in your own game.
The attention to detail for the "in-game" world was amazing. I like the look little odd flares and details that are slipped in. Makes it way to get lost and imagine your the one walking through the fields or the one swinging your sword.
I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a book you wont be able to put down.
thanks for the great Story!
This little Masterpiece kept me tense most of the time in this unforgiving post doomsday scenario. I pictured the the main characters dying in so many ways over the simple things we do everyday in our own lives. This was just when the MCs were in their realities, not to mention when they were in-game!
It feels as if there is the right amount of everything in this story and I'm so glad I didn't pass this one up while searching for more to read.
I'm convinced now that you can't really judge a story by its summary or its cover. Now this makes my job of finding the best stories I can read that much harder. How will I know what to judge as best when I can't rely on the summary or the cover alone? I guess I'll be forced to add the author as part of my criteria. Now I'll be forced to remember author's names! That's right up there with remembering your first real kiss to your first real girlfriend or boyfriend. It's something you should never forget.
The story is well paced and engaging both inside the game and out.
This book grabs you and holds you, making it extremely difficult to put down, which can be a detriment to ones sleep pattern, until it is finished.
Eagerly awaiting the next one!
