Alex is one of us. An office rat during daytime, he spends sleepless nights playing his favorite MMO game: a familiar, predictable world which is about to collapse. A new virtual universe arrives to replace it, aggressively devouring all others: the Crystal Sphere. Alex gets involved in testing new technologies which promise to revolutionize gaming. Fitted out with a neuroimplant which provides a 100 percent authentic experience, he has to survive in the Crystal Sphere against all odds. What is he turning into? Will he become yet another expendable test subject - or the first player to transcend reality?

Miss pronounced words are a huge pet peeve!

The story is entertaining. The narrator has a good voice and tells the story well. But I always notice when words are mispronounced. It doesn't bother me to much when it's said only once. But in this story the word chitin is said a lot. It is pronounced (KY-tin). Are these not edited?

Very Good... But incomplete.

I loved the story, but it doesn't end well. It's too big of a cliffhanger. I would rather the book had ended before the last part started rather than end who knows where exactly before it is finished.

I will continue the series but am now skeptical as I can only hope the next one won't make the same mistake.

I can only guess that the whole first book was cut into 2 parts at the last minute without finding a good way to end it to spread it out. What's wrong with a 12 to 14 hour complete story?

Overall it is very good and worth a read as long as you are aware it is not complete as most first books are for a series start.
