Eliza's parents are relentless - forcing her to constantly take extra courses to prepare for college and medical school. Sometimes, it feels like her entire life has already been planned out. Which is why she leaps at the chance to escape into a new virtual reality game, Awaken Online. What she wasn't expecting was to encounter a capricious god and his loyal "pet". Or to be chosen as this god's "avatar" within the game and forced to tackle a series of asinine quests. Yet she just can't shake the feeling that there is more to the irritating god than first meets the eye.

Oh man, I love the characters that Bagwell creates. Their stories and backgrounds are solid and real. I love that Eliza has been added into the mix, and is another champion of a God like Jason. Eliza is a great charcter with her own problems and drives, her struggles are well written as well is her growth. I can't wait to see her grow and develop as she travels with Original Sin. Lmao I want to see Jason's reaction if/when (please Bagwell!) he finds out that she created a biological weapon by accident!
I also can't wait t see how the gods meddling will influence or not influence jason and Eliza as champions. Eliza already is suspicious of the Hippy, and Jason is no push over either. I wonder if they would stick together even if their respective gods dont????
Overall I loved Elizas back story, it really gives her character more depth and a better understanding of her personality. Another great book by Travis Bagwell, recommend 10/10!

The corrupt and powerful PsiCorps is determined to usurp the Hunters as chief defenders of Apex City, and Joy is now squarely in their crosshairs. Unused to playing political games, she has very few people she can truly trust - not even Josh, her first friend in Apex City, who broke up with her when it became too dangerous for a Psimon to be dating a Hunter. Then Josh comes to Joy for help. He fears that Abigail Drift, the head of PsiCorps, will soon use him in her twisted experiments designed to empower PsiCorps and render Hunters superfluous.

They came after the Diseray. Some were terrors ripped from our collective imaginations, remnants of every mythology across the world. And some were like nothing anyone had ever dreamed up, even in their worst nightmares. Now, the luckiest Cits live in enclosed communities, behind walls that keep them safe from the hideous monsters fighting to break through.

The main character is real, down to earth, and has common sense. The story has so many interesting elements, you just have to keep listening to find out more. Ten out of five, one of the best books I have ever come across.
