Book 2 starts with the real life consequences of what the main character (MC), Jack, discovered at the end of book 1. He’s quiet plainly, out for revenge. Not only does he seek revenge IRL but he also seeks to get his revenge by destroying the game from within. At least that’s the justification the author uses to continue his story.
In reality, much of the in-game story is just more slice of life adventure. It’s action oriented, there’s the addition of larger group fighting, and even some politics as the MC levels, kills, and looks for a way to destroy the game world. It’s good stuff, but remember that the MC is not a hero. Instead, he’s a bit more selfish. Willing to do whatever it takes to get what he wants regardless of the negative effects it might have on the larger world. So don’t expect a traditional plot with a concrete resolution. It’s mostly good action adventure stuff. Though I’ll admit my favorite part is the end with it’s many twists and turns.
The real life storyline is just as good. As Jack gets his revenge, the fallout from what he does impacts the entire world. It was honestly fascinating to see how it all turned out.
Overall, I enjoyed the story. There were some slow moments and again the in-game story is very slice of life as you follow the MC through a variety of quests and fights. Good stuff, if you manage your expectations.
Score: 7 out of 10.
The book starts a little slow, when you compare it to how the second one finished. That isn't bad per se, since there was a lot that happened then and the reader needs to pivot into the second book. The continuation of the love-hate relationship buildup between the main character and the reader doesn't let up though, and at points I felt bad about rooting for him.
And it only gets better from there. There's some pretty funny cameos throughout that had me chuckling a bit.
Really, if you liked the first one, do yourself a favor and pick this up. You'll love it.
Now, if only we could get a cover remake of the first book.... This one looks awesome. The first one looks like Eric Knight from Dungeons and Dragons.
Believe me when I say some parts of the book were real confusing, as in SUPER UNLIKELY BS or weird shenanigans I can't explain. Such as Jack's INCREDIBLY weird family, the political mumbo jumbo, and limited details surrounding the real world and other side characters, ie Daggers. I didn't even know how high tech the setting is until talks of holograms and whatnots came into the fray. I want to give a well thought out review, but if you read part one might as well continue the story.
Definitely not perfect, but still worth the time.
