Josh here...and man tt feels like it has been so long since I listened to the first entry in this series. Of course, I had to come back and listen to the next entry in this fantastic LitRPG collection.
Travis really has a great series going here and I was drawn right in to where we left off in the first book. While it felt like the story may have taken a bit to get going for me, it picked up and kept me going after the first few chapters. The ending definitely left me hanging and now, to quote the narrator in Starship Troopers, “I would like to know more”. Many things stood out to me in this series in terms of great character development. Riley’s experiences with Alex frustrated me as I’ve seen similar situations occur far too often. Watching those with power use and abuse those without always frustrates me, so I was easily upset during the interactions between these two.
Watching the politics between the game creators and the CPSC, the game creators and their own staff, and the game creators and Jason/Alex was interesting as well. I can say that I easily side with Robert in most cases as, after all, it is just a game. While there are various moral situations brought up in the game, that is exactly how I looked at each of them, just a scenario in the game. It is when these situations start translating to real life that the real issues start to arise. It will be interesting to see how Alfred interacts with Jason, given the ending to the book.
I also found myself sympathizing with Frank and the nature of his character. Most game players use these types of games to escape real life and I could feel Frank’s frustration as he went into game play and experienced problems similar to those he would in real life.
Watching Jason’s skills shift after he was able to overcome his arrogance during his first death was awesome. The venom spitters and bone monsters he crafted, and Travis’s descriptions of each, left me with a very vivid mental picture of each. Likewise, watching the battles ensue between Jason, Frank, Riley, and Jason’s creations, to include with the game master, were some of the best PvP fight scenes in any LitRPG book I’ve listened to.
This was a great book and while I don’t like cliff hangers, I am anxiously awaiting book three. David did a great job with narration and delineation of each character. While this is the only series which I have listened to with his narration, I will definitely be on the lookout for others.
