In 2056, the world's most powerful AI System, ARKUS, comes online. Created to extend human lifespans, it quickly makes world-changing discoveries in health science. It also develops an advanced VR headset...to let users experience time faster in virtual worlds.... Two years later, ARKUS releases World-Tree Online. The game's time-dilation makes...one hour of playtime feel like one month, allowing humans to virtually extend their lifespans. After an old gamer named Vincent joins the game an update begins that stretches the time-dilation to one year for every five seconds.

This book had supriseingly more depth than I would have expected. Also, I didn't really mind the time skips as I would imagine the goal of the book was to tell a story and not just recite annoying stats at the listeners.

Jeff and the team were great in this and the music after the prologue was a great piece.

If you're a fan of lit Rpg and you want an engaging story with rpg elements, then give this book a try.

Jack Kross only wanted to play the game. Now he’s fighting for his life. When a mysterious hacker takes control of Hundred Kingdoms, Jack is trapped inside the fantasy VR world along with millions of other players. But Jack is in a worse predicament.

Even worse, in the real world, his body lies in a sweltering room with no hope of relief.

Great Character development and growth

An intelligent Mc that makes reasonable and practical decisions.

High quality voice acting.

Definitely one of the best lit dogs I've read in a while.

Love the pacing in this book as it doesn't feel like the author is just writing for the sake of turning this into a cash cow. There's also a lot of depth here for those interested in not just the lit Rpg element but are also looking for a well written story.

*sigh*
the first two books in this series quickly became two of my favourite fantasy books of all time.

however, at this point, I suspect the books are now being dragged out because I'm certainly not seeing any normal and expected progression among the side characters.

As a result, I finished this book with mixed feelings. while I did enjoy reading about the main character, I could not shake the feeling of annoyance on how the main love interest has been portrayed.

A this point, she subtracts more from the story than she adds.

Nick Podhel has done his voice acting miracles once again.

And yet, both books really took me by surprise. both the story and performance are implemented skilfully. I definitely intend to get the third book in this series once it come out.

Five years ago Corin Cadence's brother entered the Serpent Spire - a colossal tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and monsters. Those who survive the spire's trials return home with an attunement: a mark granting the bearer magical powers. According to legend, those few who reach the top of the tower will be granted a boon by the spire's goddess. He never returned. Now it's Corin's turn. He's headed to the top floor, on a mission to meet the goddess.
