When an augmented reality game’s creator offers him goggles, Jacob enters a city he thinks he knows. But towering monuments of Victorian architecture have replaced the skyscrapers. Airships float between the buildings. Fearsome enemies, from steam-powered rabbits to clockwork werewolves, lurk in every shadow. But with the game comes a quest, and to the victors go the deed to Steam Whistle Alley, the social and financial heart of the game. And some of his adversaries aren’t playing games.

Narrator is great, book flows well but main character is Super pro VR gaming guru and still somehow annoyingly clueless. Couldn't keep going, made it to a little less than half way thru. Examples ahead may contain spoilers. Super Gamer starts new game with unfamiliar start weapon even tho he knows he's taking part in contest with ultra super prize. Super Rich-Gamer gets access to marketplace, finds out game uses real world currency and only buys HP potions. No weapon or armor upgrade. Still in lvl 1 gear.. Super Gamer gets one-shotted while grinding and immediately goes back after time out counter, without new weapons or armor, while having access to a ton of different level appropriate grind spots.. It only gets worse, seriously I promise. MC is an insult to real world Pro gamers. It's like writing about a world class drug king with experience in selling multiple drugs, and access to resources but deciding he's going to start from the very bottom and start selling this new drug on the street corner in someone else's neighborhood.

A legendary sword is left behind by his master, the Godking. Trapped for millennia, the sword's spirit awaits the day he'll be set free. Will his new master be worthy of inheriting the Godking's legacy?
