The virtual world of Barliona is a place of rest and entertainment - but not for everyone. It has become a survival arena for Daniel Mahan after he was sentenced to eight years in its virtual jail. Mahan has been through it all: the back-breaking work in the mines, betrayal by other prisoners, and finally, the retrial which has released him into Barliona's common world. What more could one want? Mahan could have kept a low profile and enjoyed relative freedom while serving the rest of his time.

This is a top quality main character driven series of books based on a character who has been sent to prison in a VR world where there are other human people playing the game for for fun (not In a prison in the real world)
So the main character has to take on quests and build up his stats to grow his charter is a D&D world type setting.
Probably not given this review a true justice, it's an awesome series and a most get 5plus stars 😄👍

Paulie Vergen is your average, everyday vampire. He's short, overweight, and balding, and he's a bit lacking in the realm of self-confidence. Life was what it was for Paulie until the day that a newly infected werewolf landed on his doorstep. That day launched the one (and only, to this point) adventure that Paulie had ever had ... and it was a doozy.

Start at the beginning, in Another Fine Myth, as Skeeve, an apprentice wizard, meets the demon Aahz. Though it's not love, or even like at first sight they form a connection - saving their lives - between them. Follow them in Myth Conceptions, as Skeeve and Aahz test their talent when they decide to take on an entire army themselves and continue on in Myth Directions. Then Skeeve finds himself alone with his own apprentice applicant, a king, in Hit or Myth and must deal with a medieval Mob!

Three months have passed since the fateful encounter in New York City that ended with the disappearance of Bill Ryder - gamer, geek, and legendary vampire. Now he's back - reawakened halfway across the globe with no allies, clothing, or clue as to how he got there. The only thing he's certain of is that his captors plan to use him for their own nefarious ends and don't care how much blood they spill in the process.

The narrator does a first class job also.

Commodore Don Harr is being punished due to a military mistake. He has been physically altered, given a new identity, and placed in charge of the antiquated ship known as the SSMC Reluctant. Their first task is to fly the old beast around the planet in celebration of her 50th anniversary. But Harr learns that their true mission is to destroy a nearby Kortnor space station. Worse, it's a suicide mission. The SSMC Reluctant is the hilarious first installment in the Platoon F sci-fi series.
