The book starts slow, takes a few chapters to set the scene. Once it gets going, Ivan’s story is engaging and highly enjoyable.

If you enjoyed the Bobaverse, you’ll be right at home.

Improves on the first novel

Where the first book in this series starts slowly, book 2 jumps into the action.

As the main character levels up and grows in power his interactions with the virtual world become more compelling.

The novel builds towards a huge battle with Hayden’s Knoll at risk.

Great fun, slow start

This book starts a bit slow but after the first 1/2 dozen chapters I was hooked.

The book is an interesting mix of world building around Hayden’s Knoll, a frontier town in a game world and battle stories focusing on the main character, a veteran field commander.

I really enjoyed this novel. It's fast paced and the premise of the main character slowly losing his grip on reality is an intriguing part of the revenge quest driven narrative. I was disappointed to find there is no second book after the cliff hanger ending.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
