So many times, book two of a series is a bit of a let down. And 95% of the time book two will leave u hanging without wrapping anything up. Not This Book! It wrapped up a few details and somehow found the perfect balance between fulfillment and wanting more. I can't wait to read the third and I think last of this series.

Ahh wonderful. Another fantastic title after a very appealing first book, with furthered character development and some back stories and world building. Nicely balancing the plot threads started earlier. It's finally dawning on me how strange it is to listen to a guy voicing a whole cast and getting you to believe and recognize everyone. It gets a little stretched with the growing cast at times but there are some pretty beautiful women's voices. That's just kinda badass and interesting on it's own. Loved the character direction. Would love some notice before the next one comes out in case I don't save my credits correctly.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Despite not being a gamer, I very much enjoyed this book's predecessor, Otherlife Dreams, so was delighted to be gifted a copy of Otherlife Nightmares by the right's holder, via Audiobook Boom. But this time, without the underlying mystery of what had pulled the entire ship's crew into a game which killed for real, I found this story less enthralling. I prefered the emergent characters as they struggled to make sense of their existence (and my own endeavours to understand the gaming world) more appealing than the ongoing story filled with fights and daring do. Jeff Hays'narration is still superb, breathing life into the protagonists and excitement into the text. But although I wanted to know if Runner can finally resolve the ongoing problem of how to end the game but survive and save the crew (and his companions), I found this book slow going.
I am sure that any gamer or lover of fantasy set in a pseudo mediaeval time would very much enjoy this book; but in spite of a great background storyline and excellent narration, this one was not for me.
