Publisher's Summary

A new update arrives to the ultra-popular online game, Realm of Arkon. With Patch 17, the level of immersion experienced by players in their gaming capsules has made virtual reality indistinguishable from the real world. But every gamer's dream becomes a nightmare for Roman Kozhevnikov after he gets confined to Arkon against his will. And not just to Arkon, but to its deadliest zone - Demon Grounds. Playing - or rather living - as his character Krian, it's not just about survival for Roman. He longs to exact revenge for his banishment to the virtual world where the sensation of pain has reached 100 percent...

Within about 10 minutes of the start, a woman is nearly raped and the main character explains to the reader that it's her fault…

I read/listen to a lot of sci fi and fantasy. I've played World of Warcraft on which this is clearly based.

Surprisingly, there are fewer women tied down and cut with knives in most of these than in this book.

Two rape/sexual assault situations within 20 minutes... I stopped listening at this point because that's really not fun.

An excellent take on the genre and recommend it

This Book starts well and has a good pace and interesting story start. Early gaming discussions and story development also goes well. The dialogue is really good and the game story goes well.

I found some of the "vision scenes" are not as well written, but having said that maybe that is the point! But I found I was wanting to skip though these sections as it was very irritating to listen too.... I felt it was not as well written as the rest of the book and would relook at how this is edited (though I recognise I could not write this well anyway so no offence).

The book setting is really good and I really enjoy the character development and the world development. Although there is a little power leveling in the early stages, which is typical of these books it is done well and I recommend the book to all who like this genre.
