A new update arrives to the ultra-popular online game, Realm of Arkon. With Patch 17, the level of immersion experienced by players in their gaming capsules has made virtual reality indistinguishable from the real world. But every gamer's dream becomes a nightmare for Roman Kozhevnikov after he gets confined to Arkon against his will. And not just to Arkon, but to its deadliest zone - Demon Grounds. Playing - or rather living - as his character Krian, it's not just about survival for Roman.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, but not the audio book.

Would you be willing to try another book from G. Akella? Why or why not?

The narrator does little to differentiate between characters. Hard to tell when the perspective changes. Makes it hard to follow and keep track of the conversations.

Would you be willing to try another one of Zach Villa’s performances?

Not at this point, to many other narrators that make the stories immersive.

Any additional comments?

The flashbacks really threw me off, got completely lost during these and took away from the experience
