Publisher's Summary

Worried for his sanity after poor in-game choices, Grant Legate’s sister, Liz, blocks access to Continue Online. With no way around the restriction, he ventures into a new world—a VRMMO game based in space—called Advance Online. There he must help his companion AI, Hal Pal, overcome an identity crisis, race to the center of the universe to bring back his true love, and figure out where he stands on the scariest implication of all; AIs are bringing the dead to life.

Different

I have to start this by saying I have been a massive fan of the first two books in this series. I believe Morse is taking a fairly unique look at the LitRPG genre and I remain excited for the final two books to make their way to Audible. That being said:

This was an extremely long sidetrack into an almost unrecognizable situation and backdrop. The main story arch, which I assume will be the purpose of the 5 books in sum, is present. But almost nothing that made books one and two so immersive returned here. This isn't a pronouncement that it was bad, not at all. It's just reality.

The eventual "payoff" if one could call it that comes in a 20 minute dialogue during the final moments of this installment.17 hours to get to 20 minutes of actual meta progression is a risky move under any calculus. It is my assumption that Morse expects this interaction to make the previous 17 hours of listening into a gee whiz or ah ha! moment. I imagine it is fairly clear that I didn't fully fall into that camp.

All in all it felt like a very long filler episode in a great series. Yes, it's still worth listening. Yes, the overall plot gets advanced to some degree. But, regardless of those positives one can't help but feel mildly disappointed. At least that was the reaction of this listener.

As stated at the beginning I will most certainly listen to the remainder of the series when offered and highly recommend the series as a whole, even with this hiccup.

Makes you ask yourself questions.

Narrorator was great and the story makes you ask yourself "How will I react to A.I"?
