Publisher's Summary

A few days have passed since Jason's confrontation with Alfred and he's debating whether to reenter Awaken Online. Alfred has made a proposition that Jason isn't certain he should accept.

After the battle with Alexion, Jason has also been appointed the Regent of the Twilight Throne. He must assume the mantle of ruling an undead city - with everything that entails. His first task is to investigate the dark keep that looms over the city's marketplace. This act will lead to a chain of events that might ensure his city's survival or create new enemies.

Meanwhile, Alex re-enters the game listless and angry after his loss against Jason. With his reputation in the gutter and no prospects, he will face a choice regarding how he intends to blaze his path through the game.

    "incredible series"

    This has been one of the best pieces of modern fantasy storytelling I have ever read/heard. Once I had finished this book I immediately searched for book three only to be heartbroken when I realised it wasn't out yet.

    I have forced friends into listening to it and for the first time ever I started listening to the books again straight after finishing them for the first time.

    Surprisingly in depth characters, excellent take on both fantasy and sci-fi. Finally a believable morally grey protagonist. Genuinely well written, cannot wait for book 3!

    "Fantastic sequel"

    This book was a brilliant continuation from the first. I consistently enjoyed the story's action and adventure. Admittedly the pace was somewhat slow at points, but the author did an amazing job of pulling you back in with twists and turns.

    "What can I say..."
    If you could sum up Awaken Online: Precipice in three words, what would they be?

    This pair of books reawakens all sorts of feelings from mmorgs past and present. nevertheless it should have wide wide appeal to those who have yet to dip their toes in to this form of entertainment. A VERY fine product from an author who who clearly has a very detailed understanding of his subject. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED.

    "Great Audiobook"
    What did you like most about Awaken Online: Precipice?

    More than an equal for the first book, it doesn't disappoint in moving forward the multiple aspects of it's predecessor. Jason, Frank, and Riley look to expand the Kingdom's borders and dungeon crawl. The ending is an epic cliffhanger.

    "Fantastic litRPG"

    This is an excellent continuation of the first book. My only complaint is that it came to an end. looking very forward to the next instalment. As with the previous book, the narration was superb. I entirely dislike the parts about Alex but that's only a credit to the author for writing such an vile character.

    "Being a Necromantic Villan LitRPG"

    I finished the book, and my first thought was that I want more, but also to that nagging curiosity to know what happens next. Awaken Online: Precipice meets the expectations that were set forth in the first book. Overall, I felt satisfied with the listening experience, some of the world building aspects of the book are very well done, while I get conflicted feeling with what some of the characters on what they are doing, I feel like they are the good kind of conflicted feelings meaning that I am invested in the story.

    (Overall 4.7/5)

    The Performance by David Stifel was basically the same experience as the first book, that is it was a good job. Conversations between characters were easy to keep track of, and I heard the story, not the voice. Production is well done, there were no issues that I caught.

    (Performance 4.7/5)

    So the story was gripping and addictive, it does slowdown in places but this is 18-hour audiobook, so those are the good places to take a breather. The book does end on something of a cliff-hanger, but that is mostly the author being evil and setting up the next book in the series (which is coming soon I hope 😝). I have conflicting feeling on most of the characters in this story, but all of them feel like they have depth and a background behind them. From the descriptions of the world of Awaken Online it feels like we only have a small glimpse of the entire world, and I worry that it only seems like two groups are effecting the game world it would be nice if this wasn’t the case – (even if only through the background in the news casts).

    The story has a few threads going on at the same time: Jason and Company, the AI Alfred, some real-world perspectives, and an Alex subplot. All of these perspectives are interesting, but I sometimes feel like the story is being told with too many povs by the author, I appreciate the perspectives, but it is jarring sometimes to get what amounts to a 1 page pov from a character that will never be mentioned again. At the end of the day, the story was well paced, with lots of villainy!

    Story (4.5/5)

    What a ride. If you liked the first book, you will love this one. Unholy hell this was well done!

    And now the cooldown begins, while Travis regenerates his mana for the next one...

    "**No Spoiler Review**"

    I want to begin this review with a very fundamental statement: I throughly enjoyed this listen and any other comments I may make regarding it are meant to be viewed from the lens of a contented reader. 4 stars, for me, is an above average book (average being 3 stars) which was entertaining and a worthwhile expenditure of time.

    Stifel did a great job with the narration, no complaints from me at all.

    As with my review with the first book in this series, I felt that while it was really great overall, there were some obvious flaws worth mentioning. First, once again there were sections and plot devices that were... on the nose, to put it bluntly. Tired stereotypes that could have been easily avoided. Hamfisted emotional hammering that would have benefited from show, not tell.

    Second, the motivations of characters outside of the game world were contrived and frankly poorly developed/written. These sections were short and didn't interfere too heavily with the overall story arch, so it wasn't a bust. Gender stereotyping (which is an issue in all LitRPG I have experienced, as well as in MMORPGs in general) was present, if muted.

    Third, we got really bogged down at certain points in game during the story. They were relatively brief, but I could feel myself drifting into other thoughts multiple times. Game mechanic issues were present and caused some moments of "huh? what? that doesn't make sense based on everything else we've been told..."

    However, where it was good, it was really rather phenomenal. Though some of the nuance of the discussion re: good v. evil and the perceptions about both were lost due to previously discussed flaws, enough remained to make themselves known in an effective and thought provoking way.

    This series continues to be the best I have experienced in the relatively new genre. Aside from my critical points, I was significantly entertained through most of the 18+ hours, which is no small feat.

    Worth a listen and your time.

    "Excellent sequel"

    I can't say I've really been into the RPG fiction genre before, but this series does a very good job blending reality and VR. It's an interesting speculation into the not too distant future of how VR and AI might intersect with human culture. I'm enjoying it quite a lot, and am anxious for the next book in the series. While it won't win any literary awards, it is quite good speculative fiction.

    Have had audible for years and this is the first book I've felt compelled to review. I have read across the genres but perhaps it's my inner gamer that has drawn me to this series. It has been a while since a series has left me wanting for more than Bagwell's has. KEEP WRITING!!!!
