Actions have consequences. Grant’s prior adventures tie together and he finds himself back in Continue Online, as Hermes - in jail. He's forced to experience life as a digital convict and earn redemption points to gain his freedom. Each in-game death pushes his goal of helping his friends out of reach. The AIs Grant’s grown to love, trust - and sometimes fear - are facing extinction, and he holds the key to their survival.

Ehhh...

I think Mr. Morse has gone off the rails with the series. I found this to be meandering; my mind easily drifted away from the story as I was listening. Which is really disappointing.

The whole thing feels like it is a second draft of some rough big ideas. Morse tries to delve into AI, humanity, reality, love, etc... but it just doesn't connect. I can see the goals he was aiming for, really clearly. They just aren't realized. I say second draft because there aren't proofing issues, but rather lack of refinement in the story. It feels like with another 5 or 6 months and some fresh perspective the story could have be significantly improved. All the pieces are there, they're just flapping in the wind.

The relationship with Zin (sp?) is touted as the lynch pin of the story, but it falls flat and one dimensional at best. At worst it is patently painful to listen to and frankly unbelievable. Surrounding characters are stunningly OK with certain progressions and many of the more compelling issues from the first two books (and even bits of the third) are completely brushed aside.

It's frustrating and sad that the story has gone this way. I was a massive fan of books one and two. I do think I will listen to the final installment when it becomes available on Audible, but my expectations are at a rock bottom. Perhaps there is a reason Mr. Morse's books have not rocketed forward like some other self published offerings.

Avoid if you have not listened to the previous books and even then approach only with reserved expectations.

Brilliant

This has been a brilliant book in the continue series. I am curious to see where the 5th book goes as the story feels complete. can't wait to have the 5th.
