It has been two years since the Shift - when most technology stopped working, and the laws of physics changed. Humanity has been brought to its knees. Like other survivors, Noah Henson has heard rumors of the Aelves. Among other guesses, predatory aliens seem as good as any other theory for what caused the Shift. But for Noah, everything else takes second place to survival, sometimes even self-respect... or any sort of decency. Lawless, post-apocalypse America had forced Noah to make many difficult decisions, and he has never seemed to choose correctly.

It is an interesting beginning to a lit-rpg series... I can't wait for more in this series, especially since the MC can now start leveling his actual class.

Meet Threadbare. He is 12 inches tall, full of fluff, and really, really bad at being a hero. Magically animated and discarded by his maker as a failed experiment, he is saved by a little girl. But she's got problems of her own, and he might not be able to help her. Fortunately for the little golem, he's quick to find allies, learn skills, gain levels, and survive horrible predicaments. Which is good, because his creator has a whole lot of enemies …

Daniel Mahan, the legendary Shaman of the Barliona game world, has served his sentence in virtual reality. Eleven months of adventures and battles in exchange for eight years in prison isn't a bad trade-off. And yet Barliona refuses to relinquish its grip on the Shaman so easily, erasing the boundary between his two realities. It turns out that it's not so simple to leave the capsule - the Way must be completed....

The end of the last book left me disgusted by betrayal. It evoked enough emotion in me to make me pissed off at the characters as if I was the one betrayed. This book totally redeems the series by giving it a proper ending! Way to go Vasily Mahanenko! I have also enjoyed the narration by Jonathan Yen which has been top notch. Thanks for a great series.

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 have really enjoyed this series up to the end of this book... I have to say that this is one of the only books I have read where I was really depressed by the unexpected ending... Epic fail of an ending!

Summoned to a world in the midst of apocalypse, Daniel Black would have his hands full just staying alive. Add in refugees, desperate soldiers, scheming nobles and a pair of thoroughly wicked witches, and life is going to be very busy indeed. Good thing he has magic of his own to even the scales. But will even that be enough?

Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin is on vacation when her Djinn lover, David, asks Joanne to marry him. She's thrilled to say yes, even if some others may be less than happy about it. Unfortunately, Joanne's pre-marital bliss is ended by a devastating earthquake in Florida. And she can't ask David and his kind for assistance, because the cause of the quake is unlike anything Joanne has ever encountered - a power even the Djinn cannot perceive.

It was an ok book, but no real ending like the previous books. This one leads directly into the next one since there is no resolution. From the synopsis of the next book, I have a feeling it will be the same... I hope I am wrong about it.

This book was as good as if not better than the first one! The story draws you in and tatilizes you with tidbits along the way. This may be a drawback for some since there was no true climax to the story. It builds up character back story and swells towards an inevitable battle which we will eagerly await in the third book. I can't wait!

Brandon Sanderson delivers extremely higher quality than expected. The writing style is almost identical to Robert Jordan. I really enjoyed this book in the series and can't wait to hear the last two.
