Publisher's Summary

Ever since Martin Banks and his fellow computer geeks discovered that reality is just a computer program to be happily hacked, they've been jaunting back and forth through time, posing as medieval wizards and having the epic adventures that other nerds can only dream of having. But even in their wildest fantasies, they never expected to end up at the mercy of the former apprentice whom they sent to prison for gross misuse of magic and all-around evil behavior.
Who knew that the vengeful Todd would escape, then conjure a computer game packed with wolves, wenches, wastelands, and assorted harrowing hazards - and trap his hapless former friends inside it? Stripped of their magic powers, the would-be wizards must brave terrifying dangers, technical glitches, and one another's company if they want to see Medieval England - and their favorite sci-fi movies on VHS - ever again. Can our heroes survive this magical mystery torture? Or will it only lead them and their pointy hats into more peril?

I LIKED YOU TWO BETTER WHEN,

YOU LIKED EACH OTHER LESS.
Their is some science fiction in this, but it is mostly about having fun. There is some fantasy, but is more about fun. There is a lot of gaming, but also a lot of fun. This whole series was a blast. I liked this book better then number 2, but not as good as number 1 and that is the way most trilogies go. One ironic situation, that I am not sure the author realized, was when he as making fun of movies these days and how they are all sequels. He complains about it in his third book of a trilogy.

This book was more about gaming than the others. The whole story is a game within a game. Similar to Player One.

Luke Daniels is to Scott Meyer, as Frank Muller is to Stephen King, Ray Porter is to Jonathan Maberry, Wil Wheaton is to John Scalzi. He is great.

An Unwelcome Storyline…

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Honestly, I'm actually a bit surprised that the overall consensus is positive for Book 3. That being said, most folks that I know personally would've also been disappointed, so I don't know who would enjoy it more than I.

Has An Unwelcome Quest turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not at all... It all started with Ready Player One & now I'm off to Critical Failures (which despite its name) is FABULOUS...

What three words best describe Luke Daniels’s voice?

Luke Daniel's is a wonderful storyteller. Zero complaints...

What character would you cut from An Unwelcome Quest?

It's funny... I didn't like the initial introduction of Ron, but he was by-far the least annoying in Book 3. Even funnier? Neither was Jimmy... I was actually rooting for Jimmy & am glad he moved on. If I were to cut anyone, it would be either be Brit the Younger or Gwen (but ONLY in Book 3).

Any additional comments?

I've never felt anger/annoyance with a book. I felt so disappointed with how Book 3 played out as it took these wonderful characters & turned them into annoying morons in Book 3. Scott Meyer truly needs to take another shot at redemption as it CANNOT end this way...

A great take on the quest games of years gone by

I loved this book. It took me way back to my days sat at my computer playing quests.

Another very well written and performed book on this series.

Great Characters, OK Story

As was the case with Book 2, still great characters with funny and emotional interactions, but the story does not live up to the pace and content of Book 1. I thought it was a good take on the whole RPG angle but a lot of the story felt very repetitive, given the different points of view between the groups on the quest. Despite this, parts of the story were quite enjoyable and overall it was worth listening to. Looking forward to Book 4!

Not the strongest book in the series

Was still entertaining, but I feel the first two books were better. Due to the narrative, it was quite repetitive. There were very few new characters or development, just building on old themes.
