Summary

Lazarus Cain is a member of the Grim Shadows, one of the Thieves Guilds in the city of Eberia. Unfortunately, Lazarus is having a bad day. Waking up in a torture chamber, suffering from amnesia, he'd be pretty much screwed if not for the mysterious, magical sigil burned into his chest.
Sometimes a really bad day should be shared with others, especially professional torturers.
Lazarus will need to use all his cunning and skill to work with his comrades, uncovering schemes within schemes, discovering that the Grim Shadows are not the only Thieves Guild in the city mired in conflict. What's more, the leaders of the other guilds, the Thief Lords, don't respond well to treachery.

A brilliant adventure

I was hesitant to begin this book as it wasn't a true continuance of the Ascend Online story. Bit I was blown away by the story found within. The over all world building adds to the Main story line and gives us a peak into a darker side of then universe. Hope to see more of this story.

Not a continuation

Would you listen to Hell to Pay again? Why?

Only a couple of hours in to this book and it seems to be on par quality wise with the first Ascend Online. Just a notice that this is NOT a continuation of the first book, but a story regarding a different character entirely.

Only reason I am writing this is I was quick to order this book and expecting it to continue where the first left off. Slight disappointed as I was expecting something different, but the story so far is strong and I have been enjoying the listen.

If you enjoyed the first book, go ahead and purchase this one, just know this is a different story arc.

Okay

I was a huge fan of the first book in this series. It was engaging, smart, quick paced, and believable- at least as much as a LitRPG can be. This installment (same world, totally new characters) was much, much weaker. Stilted dialogue, forced plotlines, and ridiculous situations abounded. Yes, even for a LitRPG world.

That being said, I still finished the book.There was something compelling enough in the story to get me to the end, so it wasn't completely irredeemable.

Looking forward to book 3 and the return to Book 1's characters. Hopefully this downhill slide was because of trying to force out a story after the success of book 1, not a harbinger of series collapse.
