The decision to start a new life is never an easy one, but for Joe the transition was far from figurative. Becoming a permanent addition to a game world, it doesn't take long to learn that people with his abilities are actively hunted. In fact, if the wrong people gained knowledge of what he was capable of, assassins would appear in droves.

Sorch is an orc mage in a world where orcs are cursed with stupidity every time they cast a spell. The only spell he can safely cast is Enhance Intelligence, which boosts his IQ for a second before the curse drains it all away again. Normally casting such a spell would be pointless, but Sorch's tribe has found a way to benefit. Magic that is cast near a mysterious artefact called the ‘Voodoo Engine’ causes invisible hands to appear, and these hands get work done for his tribe. Sorch is a slave to the Voodoo Engine, casting a single spell over and over again to avoid being beaten.

I love this book.............................. until the trap cat showed up. I don't know why the publisher didn't think to, maybe mention that the love interest was a androgynous, gender non-binary, cat-kin, prostitute, that everybody is attracted to. all I know is I find furry tranny way to degenerate for me. if you feel the same way I do skip this book. If furry stripper scenes, with a possibly male furry, doesn't bother you I hope you enjoy it.

For those who reside in the outer regions of Aleria, the day of bestowal is what determines their destiny. It is the holy day of the Goddess. The day that allows those of age to step forward and receive their blessing, to embark on the path that she has chosen for them. To receive their Classification, which dictates their strength and ability. For those people, the holy day of bestowal represents fate itself. For Dante, it represents salvation.

This book was a pleasant surprise. I did not think I was going to like orwould anticipate the next book in the series as much as I do. My only complaint is I wasn't able to find a website to see how the next book is coming.

Seamus is facing life in prison without parole. While doing his time, he's given an option by the Department of Justice and the biggest virtual game maker around, Mindblown Entertainment. If he will help them test long-term immersion, he will get the chance to play the latest game from Mindblown - Alpha World. All he has to do is sign away his legal rights and sign an NDA.

The love interests feel like badly-written characters for a dating sim.The main character did very little to earn the attention of all the women. There was no sense the women were competing against each other for the attention of the main character; even in polygamist relationships women will compete for the attention of the partner they share. The fact that the female characters are just f***** dolls for Fantasy fulfillment kept pulling me out of the story.

The Wizard's Council of Tarador was supposed to tell young Koren Bladewell that he is a wizard. They were supposed to tell everyone that he is not a jinx, that all the bad things that happen around him are because he can't control the power inside him, power he doesn't know about. The people of his village, even his parents, are afraid of him, afraid he is cursed. That he is a dangerous, evil jinx.

This is just a fun book. It's nice to have a book, that tells a story about a world, that isn't based off of machiavellianism. there also wasn't a ton of social justice bulshit being shoved down your throat.

Mahan's ready for new adventures - just as the gaming world of Barliona thought it was about to reenter its old comfortable rut. The winds of the Dark Forest have finally died down; Altameda has recognized its new owner while Geranika is nursing new schemes of global destruction. Would Mahan be happy with this predictable old life? We think not!

I'm a big fan of this series. You don't got a lot of sjw bingo; You know a gay caricature to check off a box, a strong female characters that can beat trained male soldiers to check off the a another box, so on and so forth. I find the change-of-pace extremely refreshing. It's nice when awkward social Concepts aren't being shoved down your throat. and really the ending, which is the best part of this book, would never be allowed to be put into a book that was written in the US.

After a brutal battle with the underworld that nearly destroyed him, Locke Lamora and his trusted sidekick, Jean, fled the island city of their birth and landed on the exotic shores of Tal Verrar to nurse their wounds. But even at this westernmost edge of civilization, they can't rest for long - and they are soon back doing what they do best: stealing from the undeserving rich and pocketing the proceeds for themselves.

This had every thing the first book had plus a tragic love story and the writer did not flash bake every other word like he did in the first book.
