In 2056, the world's most powerful AI System, ARKUS, comes online. Created to extend human lifespans, it quickly makes world-changing discoveries in health science. It also develops an advanced VR headset...to let users experience time faster in virtual worlds.... Two years later, ARKUS releases World-Tree Online. The game's time-dilation makes...one hour of playtime feel like one month, allowing humans to virtually extend their lifespans. After an old gamer named Vincent joins the game an update begins that stretches the time-dilation to one year for every five seconds.

The story switches between the light and dark, explores powerful themes and all in a believable RPG digiverse. The villain does steal the show and some may be uncomfortable with getting such close look at how easy it is to fall into misusing power.

However, it was such a relief for me to listen to an RPG story with more depth to it than simply getting strong, fighting battles, and defeating the big boss at the end. I can’t wait for the next one.

Thrust into an unknown, unwanted situation, most would feel panic, fear anger, and fall into chaos. Erik and Rugrat are not immune to those feelings, but they have stepped into chaos so many times, it is simply a different challenge. Two weeks ago, Erik lost his legs and his arm. Today he got a message. "You have been randomly selected to join the Ten Realms. One may choose to ascend the Ten Realms, thereupon making a request to the Gods of the Realms. Only those who are Level 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, and 90 may ascend to the next realm. Fortune favors the strong!”

This was fun. The RPG screens were a little disruptive to the story, but I enjoyed listening to character sheets being referenced like they were just another part of life. The earth, gravity, people relating, magic, skill trees and experience points.

I can’t wait for book 2 to come out!

I absolutely loved hearing the booked performed by Tatiana!

I hope they do more 1st person books with the main actor/actress. It was like reliving the movie, but with all my favourite parts of the book that didn’t make it into the film. Loved it!

She was even able to echo her co-stars speaking patterns. Sometimes I just got lost in it and it felt like I was listening to the full cast from the movie.

Welcome to Gramayre - where witches, warlocks, elves, and gnomes are real; where a spoiled girl-queen and an army of teenage witches, and ragtag beggars battle an overwhelming force of rebel knights and time-travelling anarchists for the future of the most unique, and perhaps most important, planet in the galaxy.

Emily is a normal girl working at Big Burger who has the unfortunate luck to look exactly like Big City's superhero darling, the Chosen One. It has been the bane of her existence, as it disrupts her life and the lives of those around her when supervillains come knocking, wanting to prove their mettle by fighting the Chosen One. With common sense and years of rage built up inside, she usually serves their butts to them on a platter, asking, "Did you want fries with that?"

Hugh d'Ambray, Preceptor of the Iron Dogs, Warlord of the Builder of Towers, served only one man. Now his immortal, nearly omnipotent master has cast him aside. Hugh is a shadow of the warrior he was, but when he learns that the Iron Dogs, soldiers who would follow him anywhere, are being hunted down and murdered, he must make a choice: to fade away or to be the leader he was born to be. Hugh knows he must carve a new place for himself and his people, but they have no money, no shelter, and no food, and the necromancers are coming. Fast.

I loved the interaction between Hugh and Elara, so full of fire and conflict. I never understood before how fighting could build excitement and anticipation, but now I REALLY do ;) the relationship between them was brilliantly developed.

The narrator performs the story well. The reason I gave it a three is because the pronounciation of key words was totally different from the Kate Daniels novels, and every time he said those words, the illusion of the story world was broken for me.

Despite that, the story was able to carry me through those moments, and overlooking them was well rewarded by my delight in the story.

An excellent end to a wonderful series. A story of so many kinds of loves and violence and the questions of ethics and pain that result from the courage to accept change. Thank you Tanya!
