Such a fascinating book. If you're a fan of Robert Anton Wilson's work in general, you will enjoy this book. If you liked Illuminatus! you will probably enjoy this book. If you've read any amount a RAW's non-fiction work, you'll be delighted to see how he weaves his philosophical and scientific ideas seamlessly into a compelling story. I really wish the sequels had audiobook versions as well.

Martin and his friends discovered that their world is computer generated and that by altering the code they could alter reality. They traveled back in time to Medieval England to live as wizards. Almost everything they've done since then has, in one way or another, blown up in their faces. So of course they decide to make dragons. It does not go well.

This book is basically just filler. Mildly entertaining, nothing special for the series. It's clear the author has written himself into a corner in some places. I was really hoping the book after this would pick things back up, but it doesn't. It's much worse. This series would have been best left as a trilogy.
