Riley's real-life took a nosedive after her confrontation with Alex. The girls at school torment her and she feels powerless to do anything about it. At the same time, Jason has mysteriously disappeared, sending only a terse cryptic message to Riley and Frank.
With some time on her hands and with her frustration with her real-life reaching a breaking point, Riley decides to strike off on her own in-game. Her goal is to investigate the quest related to the strange bow she discovered in the dungeon north of Peccavi. Yet events quickly spiral out of control as she discovers that the bow's former owner has set her along a path of vengeance - with an entire city hanging in the balance.

It's a side story
A side story that to me, really did not add much more than a new interesting class and that is about it.
the story was alright it's more interesting about the character development. so I can't give this a full score since it really feels like a tedious yet rewarding side quests. so a 4/5 is all I will give it.
the performance is as always, brilliant.

enjoyed a lot would recommend
a nice addition to the previous books and a closer look at Riley Who originally I did not like but after this book and the kind of turmoil that she goes through really made me enjoy the way that she growed. you kind of need to have read the first two books to get a sense of the world. overall I liked a lof

A fantastic expansion of the AO universe
I’ve been waiting a year to hear how Jason explained away the dead bodies! Do we get good clean answers explaining about how the butler (Alfred) did it in the bedroom with the dagger? Not a CLUE (get it?)!
Instead, David Stifel wonderfully narrates this side bar story line that tightened the addiction I know I have for the Awaken Online universe. Darn you BAGWELL!!! Please, please do not turn into a Robert Jorden and pass away before the story is done. Don’t turn into a John Ringo and get bored with a story line and walk away after 3 or 4 instalments! Please Travis, stay happy, stay healthy and keep typing!
Read / listen to the first 2 books. They are worth the credits (audible) or the kindle down load. These are the foundations to the AO world. Mr. Bagwell does not spend time flash backs to bring new readers up to date (thank you). You will be enthralled with the world that Bagwell paints and the characters he skillfully develops.
I do not know Bagwell’s background or if he has people helping him with the social and mental material on bullied teens, but as a father of bullied teen, I can say he dead on the mindset of the bulling problem and how cruel kids can be to each other and themselves. This book is a great case study of a person going from victim to victor. The details of the world and characters are vivid. And he uses those details to pull you deeper into the story.
This story is worth the credit. The story line is binge worthy. Scratch off a day of work or give up a night of sleep. The story is that good.

The same but different.
another excellent entry in the awaken online saga. when I saw that this iteration was a side story I was mostly bummed, but after getting about a quarter through it really started to feel refreshing. Riley goes through some unique experiences. Jason's story and its constant update of stats got a bit taxing in the other two. this book has much less of that while still providing all the nessary infromation. if you liked the other books this one is a guaranteed pick up.
