Publisher's Summary

October, 2042.
Three days ago, Jack Mitchel saved his life. By dying.
He dodged a world-ending bullet - in the form of an extinction-level asteroid, cannonballing toward Earth - by successfully uploading his mind into the brand new, ultra-immersive, fantasy-based VRMMORPG - Viridian Gate Online. Unfortunately, he's also stumbled headlong into a secret conspiracy that will transform V.G.O. into a new feudal dark age.
Jack expected to live out his new fantasy life in peace, but now he and his misfit crew of rebels are the only ones preventing a tyrant emperor and his regime from taking power. Thankfully, everything isn't quite as hopeless as it seems - Jack has a plan. Sort of. With only a handful of supporters, he's going to get the jump on the bloodthirsty empire, by snatching one of their key cities right from underneath their noses. In order to pull off the impossible, however, Jack's going to have to develop his formidable Shadowmancer powers, raid some ridiculous dungeons, and make some shady allies - allies who may be more dangerous than the empire itself.

Great listen

Book 2 was action packed and exciting. A fun listen and narrated very well. I would definitely recommend this story.

Another home run for Hunter

There were two moments of sheer brilliance in the book that made me hoot aloud, several that made me laugh hysterically, and many that made me bite my nails. This litRPG adventure had my blood pumping, my gut turning, and got me writing a review as passionate as the writing.

Well executed, fair amounts of humor, plenty of adult chuckle moments, and enough blood shed, loot collecting, and boss slaying action to slick any gamer's literary lust.

Great litRPG and if anything better than book 1

A very nice developing main story to go along with some classic RPG style moments. If you've played MMOs or RPGs you'll love this.

Great! Just like the 1st

Great second book! same problem as the 1st just not long enough, there is so much going on in the world so much to find out, you can definitely get sucked right into this world along with Jack talking about his choices and what's going to happen next. right on to the 3rd one for me!

Poor timing, balance, luck, and philosophy.

Any additional comments?

Overall = lovable like your own child, mid tantrum.
Philosophy = oversimplified and still too hard for MC to handle.
Game mechanics = Smart
Class balancing = Mary Sue (but expected from genre)
Timing = Anime style (a full conversation mid swing)
Plot armor = Only physical pain, no loss even of opportunity
