Publisher's Summary

A tech genius. A corrupt politician. The world hangs in the balance.
October, 2042: In two weeks, the world will die, murdered by a nine-mile-wide, extinction-level asteroid.
And Robert Osmark - billionaire and savvy tech genius - couldn't be readier for the fiery apocalypse.
Unlike the shortsighted masses, he’s been diligently preparing for this day from the moment the asteroid first appeared. Through his relentless efforts, digital salvation now awaits anyone bold enough to take the leap and permanently transition into the brand-new, ultra-immersive, fantasy-based VRMMORPG, Viridian Gate Online. And Robert Osmark will lead this new world he has created.
But even with every advantage skewed in his favor, Osmark faces powerful opposition. A rogue faction of global elites led by US Senator Sizemore isn’t content to merely survive the apocalypse. They have their sights set much higher, and are recruiting dangerous allies, undercutting Robert's efforts at every turn, and hiring VGO’s most deadly assassins to get what they want. 
To win, Osmark will need to viciously crush all opposition before his plans turn to ash.

Good narrator, Except......(Good book otherwise)

Okay, I hate to be so picky, but this seriously bugged me. The narrator is really good, but he mispronounces the word staMINA every single time! He pronounces it as staNIMA! Such a small thing if he did it once, but he does it every single time! If this were the type of book where the word was only used a few times, it wouldn't bug me so much. This book, however, is LITRPG, and the word is used A LOT. You would think someone would have corrected this. Otherwise, the narration was really good. He reads well and does good voices and accents. And the book itself is really good, so long as you've read the Veridian Gate books. I just wish this issue had been taken care of.

Great story of VGO's villain's rise to power

If you enjoyed the VGO series, this is a great addition, giving a look at the "villain" Robert Osmark's side of the story.
