Summary

From the very first hour Cayden had set foot inside the massive, real-life game that was the Tower of Babel, nothing had gone according to plan. A unique skill, a handful of new friends, and the wrath of an ultra-wealthy, patricidal lunatic were just some of the complications to his best laid plans.

So why was he even surprised when a special event trapped him, his companions, and dozens of other players inside the tower, squaring them off against a murderous army of stone-faced warriors?

If they are to have any hope of survival, they'll have to leverage not only their own personal power, but the power of the Elan as well. There are castles to be built, armies to be raised, and one real question to be posed: How good is a self-proclaimed RPG nerd going to be at turn-based strategy?

Not as good as the first

Well the first book was amazing, the second, no so much. as it goes, i'm finding this one boring and not grabbing me like book 1.

if a book 3 is on the cards then I guess i'd buy that too, hopefully the series can pull back.

the narrator done a great job though 5* overall book 2 , 3*

I'll likely listen to the next, but...

It felt off on the first with the RTS elements to the story. And sometimes I had no idea what the hell was going on. Like with the first I felt like the listing of level and attributes and the like were filler.

Though it was an enjoyable story I see it as a poor man's Sword Art Online and this book especially like a filler episode or a side-along movie.

Half a book with little effort

Books ok but isn’t the full story kind of ends outta nowhere. Characters just blend into the background. Doesn’t really follow on from the first book just some loose references in all wasn’t worth spending a credit on which is a shame as I love the first book

Doesn't live up to the first

Disappointing after the first book. The author makes continuity errors repeatedly, such as saying characters are 16 years old, when it was a whole plot point in the first book that no one can enter the tower under 17. The speedrunner and streamer angles - which attracted me to the series in the first place, remain thoroughly abandoned, making it just like every other LITRPG. Finally the game changes genre to a RTS game instead of RPG which is extremely dull. It made me go play some RTS games instead of listening. I gave up with 2 hours to go and returned it.
