As Good or Even Better than the First

This series remains my favourite audiobook series. The story is as gripping as the first. The development was good as Grant comes to grips with how far he would go to reclaim his love. I can't imagine any other narrator than Pavi as Grant. Can't wait for the next book to be released on Audible!

Continue Online: Character Creation begins

This is an interesting book for me, as a funeral director and foster father I see how loss is a sould crushing event. It breaks even the strongest individuals. Sometimes, there is no recovery. Sometimes, healing isn't possible, and all we can do is muddle through the remainder of our lives as best we can. I say this, because the Main Character, Grant Legate, seems to be one of those people. Morse really nails this shattered man's spirit. Believe me, I have seen people like Grant more than I ever I've ever cared to, but I have no choice.

That being said, the book is an interesting study in character. Can someone who loses everything important to them ever heal? Will they want to? Can the game help? Much like the first book, book two has a slow start, but the pace builds and rockets through to the end like a book on fire. Still, I can see how some people might see the MC as being wimpy or weak, or a cry baby. Depression is like a tidal wave that continually assaults the same beach over and over. No matter what you have, no matter what you do, it will crush and shatter everything in its path when it comes. I, for one, appreciate a suicidal protagonist who doesn't have a Doc Holliday mindset.

If you liked the first book then you will love the second. It pretty much plays out in a similar fashion, with the slow burn and build up into a great crescendo. If you didn't like Grant in the first book, you will absolutely hate him here. So don't expect a lot of growth from the cowardly lion. He finally gets to play the game, but not in a way he expects, and his reaction is pure Grant. If you loved him, you will now cherish him.

Pavi Proczko does an amazing job on the narration. Just as in the first book he really makes you feel everything that Grant does, you know his emotional state, and it hurst because there is nothing that you can do to help. He also nails the characters, the imp's summoner is fun, and he really does his best to make each PC in the book have their own voice and personality. He does a great job setting the tone, and the mood of each chapter.

I also LOVE the cover of this book. It looks creepy as all get out, and really catches your eye. You cannot unsee it, and the colors and tones really work with setting the story up. I don't know if I could pass upa book with this as its cover.

In spite of the perceived downer some people think Grant is, I think this is an incredible book, and it will stand out in your mind long after you read it. You will have hope that Grant's spirit will heal and that he will become a whole man once again. 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. In fact, 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.

If this review helped, please press the YES below. Thank you immensely!!!

Continue Online… YES PLEASE

The first book in the series was proof that Stephan Morse is a first rate author that can relate a story with the best of them. This second volume backs up that claim with mounting evidence. This second story can be read as a standalone however there is much back story you would be missing that would greatly increase the pleasure of this immersive experience.

Stephan Morse has created a world not to far in our future that appears to have a lot of features I would like to see. He has taken the RPG game to new levels and is addressing many of the issues and repercussions of that expansion. This is a thought provoking story that will fully immerse you in his world so you can relate and deal with the issues that follow. There are several plot lines developing and I am sure the third novel will be explosive… as any good RPG should be.

Pavi Proczko does a good job in this edition and really merges well with the story

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
