Description

November, 2042

It's been a busy month for 32-year-old Jack Mitchel:

Three weeks ago, he died.

Two weeks ago, he founded the first Faction in the ultra-immersive, fantasy-based VRMMORPG, Viridian Gate Online.

A week and a half ago the world ended, destroyed by a cataclysmic asteroid.

Seven days ago, he conquered the Imperial city of Rowanheath, bringing all of Eldgard to the brink of war.

Though Jack's Faction, the Crimson Alliance, has a tenuous truce with tech genius and Imperial lord, Robert Osmark, Jack knows it can't last. Osmark is devious and power hungry, and it's only a matter of time before he sends his forces to wipe Jack and his underdog crew off the map for good.

If Jack hopes to survive another month inside of VGO, he must find a way to beat Osmark and his army of bloodthirsty thugs, and a new quest - the Path of the Jade Lord - may be just the ticket. But this quest will be far harder than anything Jack's faced before, pushing him to his mental, physical, and moral limits. And if Jack isn't careful, his quest to defeat Osmark and the Empire may end up turning him into the despot he's been fighting against.

Steryotypical

The series started out good but now it feels so standard, like a perfect fantasy. The conflict and tension started to feel pointless as you know everything would end in the most predictable fashion.

Series Keeps on improving

This is one of those rare series that just keeps on improving and improving as time goes on. The characters continue to grow, the plot is like a brick wall being filled in piece by piece with some solid mortar, and the action almost makes YOU bleed. Hunter is pretty slick,as he adds pieces from prior books to build the momentum, and then leaves you with a completed story that has a few plotlines that are unfinished so that you know where the next book is going to start.

The characters are really fun personalities, each distinct and outstanding in their own way. Each makes you laugh a little, grit your teeth some, and sweat a tad too. I think what is best about the characters is that they learn from their mistakes, and in this book they make a one whopper of an error, but they can use their intellects to overcome their adversity. That is why I really anticipate the battle that may be occuring in the next book! Gah, I hate waiting, but the build up is soooo good. I rate Hunter among the ranks of Blaise Corvin, Harmon Cooper, and J.A. Ciparino for the world building and characterizations. This is just pure fantasy at its finest, with just a touch of gamer thrown in for fun. VC is really beginning to carve out a name for itself for good reason.

By the way, Taylor just nails the narration. His voices make each and every character unique and fresh. If I went back to the first book I could admit that his voice for the Spider Queen was enough to admittedly make my skin crawl. I think I just want to hear him make Cutter say something like, "I can't get no satisfaction." Because everytime I hear that thief speak I hear Mick Jagger! Bloody brilliant, that is. Taylor is the man, and he knows how to pace a tale. I laugh everytime he does his "yelling over noise" voice, because I did that when I was a kid playing, too.

The series keeps getting better and better, and if this pace continues I think that we are in for some awesome stories! 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.

Great ending, but...

... some boring combat scenes that I mostly have to fast-forward through. The author spends way too much time detailing every part of combat, and some battles are inherently uninteresting because you already know pretty much the outcome.

All in all though, a decent story.

Loved It!

Just like the last book, and the one before that, this book is amazing.

Again, only one minor gripe with the narrator's performance.... STOP WHISPERING WHEN THE CHARACTERS ARE YELLING! That's not how yelling works and it drives me insane!

Other than that though, the book was flawless and amazing.
