Wow, Book 3 can't come soon enough!

Book two was amazing! expanding on Alan's adventures from the previous book the first few chapters set the tone for another great book.

It is slow at times but they're either for plot explanation or for general description, One thing I love about this series is the Narration, Nick Podhel really out does himself and delivers another great narration.

would definitely recommend the series to any avid gamer, it sci fi fan!

Another epic installment

I was expecting a party of five, Alan, kitana, sidestep, etc to go on some quests and dungeons for loot and levels, but instead the story took a much larger more interesting route and it was great.
It was a little less 'gamey' than the first but as the ground was already set this wasn't a bad thing.
I genuinely can't wait for more.

Ready Player 1 meets Expeditionary Force

Ready Player 1 is one of my favorite books. It was the first LitRPG stories I ever read and it was so much fun. Sadly the next few I read I barely finished and some I didn't. I was hooked quite early with this series and finished both books in about 4 days.

I liken the feel of these books as the title says - Ready Player 1 meets Expeditionary Force.
Skippy the A.I. form Expeditionary Force is nothing like Eve though. But the general premise of an A.I. helping the main character to discover the mysteries of the universe along with some sidekicks to help is essentially the same.
Alan is similar to Wade from Ready Player 1. A down on his luck character who seems to stumble into a situation he is ill prepared for yet despite all odds shines under pressure.

You don't have to like playing games to enjoy these books, just understand how they generally work. If you love a great adventure and science fiction then you will love these books.

Nick Podehl does a wonderful job with his narration. His female voices aren't annoying like most males are who try to perform them, his accents are good and he is easy to listen to for long periods.

Buy this, love it, and spread the word so we can get many more stories from Cosimo.
