Description

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.

BRILLIANT

Excellent series. Can't wait for more! The captivating deliver and superb writing make me hold my breath after every paragraph. Keep going Lukes! You're both amazing talents!

Better than expected

Not as good as the first, but decent (especially considering it's book 1.5 and a separate story). I'm hooked, despite the dangling participles running rampant.

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.

This is Book 1.5, and you need to start with Book2

First get the real Book 2 (Legacy of the Fallen), and listen through to the start of Chapter 12. That's when Lazarus Cain is introduced. He's the star of this book (Book 1.5). But by then you'll have caught up with what's going on in the Village, and it won't be annoying to get his back story.

Skip this book

Even the talented Luke Daniels couldn’t make this book a worth successor to the first. This story isn’t captivating in the slightest. Such a big disappointment after how fun the fist book was. Do yourself a favor; listen to the last minute of the epilogue and go straight to book 3 ( or is it 2 since this is technically book 1.5)

So cheesy

Plot? check
Narration? double check
But the damn writing. Most of the time it's fine and then we get to these stupid standoffs where protagonist goes into dumb conversations with enemies and just acts like a moron and I'm lost. Author doesn't seem to be aware of his characters stupidity either which is troubling.

Disappointed

Over the top performance and storyline that is completely disjoint from the first book makes for a disappointing experience.

absolutely awesome

This book is absolutely as epic as book 1 was and makes me eager to listen to book 2: legacy of the fallen will be better than perfect im sure.

this book is the definition of filler

first off the good.
The narration was good, with all the characters easily identifiable by voice and tone.
I really enjoyed the first book in the series, and this poor performance will not stop me from seeking it out again the future.

The bad.
Nothing happens in this story, the main protagonist has very little to do with the events going on, none of the Mysteries in this story are addressed by the end.
the first book in the series was an adventure in World building, with the main character learning about the World As We Do. this book does almost no world-building and we learn almost nothing that was not covered in the first book better.

things I want the book to address but the author did not, what's going on in the real world with the games growing popularity, what was the first week of the launch like with a hundred thousand players in a town not able to support them, this was described as hellish in the first book and is not addressed in this book. most importantly the author fails to address the major theme of the story in the series, whether or not this game is real or not.

overall a poor performance. I haven't tried the third book yet, but I get the feeling that you could probably skip this book and not miss anything.
