Jack thought his greatest challenge would be reaching the shores of the lost continent, then the perks and loot would just roll in. It so happened that a hail of unexpected gifts from Fate rained down on him, like water from a leaky bucket. But Fate is a sneaky thing. Its gifts can just as easily pummel you to death. Now Jack is a fugitive, pariah, the living dead. And that's just in reality. In the game, the Gods themselves have turned against him. However, the Gods still don't know who they're messing with.

This book picks up right where the last left off.

Another great mix of how the real world overlaps with the VR world, two stories merging a bit.

The only negative that I can see is that I don't want this to turn out to be like any Elminster series where the character can do anything. Stay with the 'game mechanics', if you will.

This is Alterra, where you can be the master of your own castle... or a field hand on a farm. And this is Jack, who wants to make his way to a different continent, hidden in the virtual mist. And this is an ancient quest line, buried under new versions of the game. Jack's goal: create his own guild. Buy a ship. And set off on the Great Journey. The journey of his life. The dangerous Gravediggers are not the only ones opposing him.

Game world:
- Developed Factions
- Well laid out economy
Real world:
- Developed status and Factions
- Economy is, ok in this book

This first book lays out the base of what the player goes through. It touches on some of the aspects of player griefing etc. But it's a really neat mix of what would happen if life in a VR game is literally better than real life.
