Summary

A Lost Princess and the Swashbuckling Game of a Lifetime

Cari Dix didn't know her whole life was a lie; she only knew she didn't belong here. Growing up with the most ordinary parents ever, all Cari wanted was a life of adventure and a little bit of fun.

When she discovers an old, restored computer from her father's past, Cari stumbles into a fantasy game world she'd always thought a part of her childhood imagination. Taking her combat fencing skills with her, she sets out to explore a world her parents said didn't exist.

Come along and play the game. Join Cari in this swashbuckling LitRPG adventure, returning to the world of Fantasma once again. This is the first book in a brand-new fantasy trilogy picking up where the Accidental Traveler series left off.

Play along with Cari as she fights to save the last of the empire's heirs and carries on the legend her father left behind.

Accidental Fan

A solid follow-up to The Traveler triliogy. I admit listening to the sample made me question about making the purchase. After all, what do I know of spoiled teen age girls? Yet I trust Jamie Davis as an author and his willingness to freely interact with me via email made me click the purchase button.

I would have missed out if I had not listened to yet another incredible work by Jamie Davis! His story writing and character development is super. He writes with humor, excitement, tension and gives me the desire to keep listening. If this were a paper book, I'd not want to wait to turn the page to see what happens next.

This is the first to hear Stacie Gonzalez and her work was fantastic. Her portrayl of each character was very good and by her voice, I have a picture of each character in my mind. She used inflection, timing including pauses and stressed words to create a vivid world.

I am eagerly waiting the next in The Champion series.

Woman power is over the top

The story is mediocre, the whole "I'm no damsel in distress" gets old quick. The endless "I won't stand for any man to think less of me" and it's like is fine IN MODERATION.

I mean I'm all for women being equal and all, but this is so annoyingly done, over the top, sjw nonsense.

The narrator was pretty good, not one of the best I've heard but I liked her and would listen to more by her. She has a decent range of voices and I can tell when a different characters voice is being used easily.

Also how the girl becomes a caption of a ship after being on the sea for less than week is beyond idiotic. Would you let someone who started training on your job be your supervisor after a single week of job training? I sure would hope not.

Story rates a 2 of 5 (when compared to the original series)
Narration rates 4 of 5

I will NOT be continuing the series, this spin off shouldn't have happened.

Childish Main Character

The main character is a childish brat from the beginning and never seems to grow up. I loved the first trilogy and was greatly looking forward to this new adventure but it is difficult listening to the main character even think things through. Her father's story was of a zero stumbling into problems and overcoming them to become a great hero. However, she stumbles into problems that she creates with her own bad attitude. I mean, for God's sake, she finds that her childhood fantasy is real and instead of being excited or trying to find the characters she remembers, she gets pissed at her parents and only takes the things involving her seriously.The story has real stakes but she has such a bad attitude that I found myself wanting the antagonists to fail, not for her to succeed. By the end I just wanted Hal back.

Better than Dueling Banjo's!

Ok, so we return to the land of Fantasma for another round of who will I be this time. Only not. This time it is Kari Dix who has the spotlight, and she really takes the mantle her father laid down, and runs off into the night with it. I have to admit that I was initially skeptical of someone stepping into the hero role that Hal created, but I can see that Davis and his son have really thought this one out. Kari, and accomplished fencer has been told that her memories of Fantasma are all false, and that she was basically delusional, until the Empress sends out a call for her hero to return, and Kari is inadvertently pulled into her “imaginary” world. Upon her entry she opts to become a duelist, surprise surprise, but there were a few other choices she could have made that were pretty intriguing such as a paladin. Within about ten minutes of her arrival she manages to run afoul of some men who work for the Duke, y’know the guy who is after the Empress’s throne, and is challenged to a duel. Well, as you guess it bad things happen and she ends up on the lam. The book is then devoted to her reluctantly trying to protect the last grandchild of the ailing Empress.

What is really nice about this book is that it actually breaks the format of the old series. As much as I loved Hal, it was a touch repetitive in the last book. It had become a sort of wash, rinse, repeat sort of thing with him basically restarting with a different class each time he entered Fantasma. Each book also had Hal returning back home after each of his adventures had concluded. Not here, from the way it looks it seems that Kari is going to stay in Fantasma for a while. And that, my friends, was perhaps the most refreshing part. Ninety percent of the books out there always have the main character trying to make their way back home the minute they find themselves stuck in a game they love to play. Alright, 90% is a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the point. Kari is actually reluctant to go home, and shows little to no interest in doing so. SO, I can’t go into more detail but suffice it to say the book does not end like the other books do. Also, it sort of looks like Kari will be remaining a Duelist for a while longer. Additionally, it looks like Hal, and possibly his wife might be returning to Fantasma as well. Hmmm, maybe one of them will become a cool paladin! We’ll see.
Now, one change that I am not doing cartwheels over is that Roberto Scarlato didn’t return for this series. It is a real shame because I am a huge fan of his, and he was sorely missed. Although, from talking to Jamie and C.J. at the Dover Comic Con this year (where I got this totally awesome signed book, MY FIRST SIGNED book!) they told me that Roberto will be narrating his Extreme Medical Services series, in which a Paramedic helps humans and monsters alike. It isn’t LITRPG, but it is something I will be getting. But I digress. As I was saying, Scarlato isn’t returning because Stacy Gonzalez has taken over the accidental champion reigns, and is now leading the team with her vocal charms. She is new to me, but she seems to handle things fairly well. Now, I’m not going to lie. She does do voices, but her male impersonations are not as strong as they could be. There were a few times that I had to wonder who was speaking, and I almost wondered if they were female or not. But it isn’t like that with all of her male voices, just some. I chalk that up as a rookie thing, I think that this is only her 6th book that she has narrated, so I can cut her some slack. From what I’ve heard, once she gets her footing, she is going to become a really great narrator. She does this series some serious justice, and that is really all that matters.

The book is fun and is family friendly, if you don’t mind some killing every now and then. Kari, as much as I resisted her replacing Hal, I think that she has some real depth, and brings a new perspective to Fantasma that I really enjoyed. I have to say that I like the new format of the stories, so it isn’t a one and done kind of deal anymore, and that I have seen some serious improvements over all, there are a lot of changes to Fantasma, and it doesn’t feel like a “The Emporer is evil and oppressive” kind of tale. There is a lot more going on, and things are not so straight forward. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. Getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Yup she's a late teen for sure.

A great book and I look forward to more books from this series. She very much has a problem with "boys" and "men" and their not taking her serious or as a threat. She learned a lot in this book and I am excited to see her as a raider.
