Publisher's Summary

A Lost Princess and the Swashbuckling Game of a Lifetime

Cari Dix didn't know her whole life was a lie; she only knew she didn't belong here. Growing up with the most ordinary parents ever, all Cari wanted was a life of adventure and a little bit of fun.

When she discovers an old, restored computer from her father's past, Cari stumbles into a fantasy game world she'd always thought a part of her childhood imagination. Taking her combat fencing skills with her, she sets out to explore a world her parents said didn't exist.

Come along and play the game. Join Cari in this swashbuckling LitRPG adventure, returning to the world of Fantasma once again. This is the first book in a brand-new fantasy trilogy picking up where the Accidental Traveler series left off.

Play along with Cari as she fights to save the last of the empire's heirs and carries on the legend her father left behind.

Childish Main Character

The main character is a childish brat from the beginning and never seems to grow up. I loved the first trilogy and was greatly looking forward to this new adventure but it is difficult listening to the main character even think things through. Her father's story was of a zero stumbling into problems and overcoming them to become a great hero. However, she stumbles into problems that she creates with her own bad attitude. I mean, for God's sake, she finds that her childhood fantasy is real and instead of being excited or trying to find the characters she remembers, she gets pissed at her parents and only takes the things involving her seriously.The story has real stakes but she has such a bad attitude that I found myself wanting the antagonists to fail, not for her to succeed. By the end I just wanted Hal back.

Political Piece

The first series was pretty enjoyable. I keep listening to this one hoping it will be, too because I really want to like it, but every other sentence accentuates Carrie’s frustrations towards men/insecurities she’s always trying to prove against. It’s fine if that’s an element of her character, but it is literally nonstop and pretty draining. She’s frankly annoying with her constantly reading chauvinism into everything. Not every situation deserves the attitude “you think I can do this because I’m a girl?! How dare you! I’ll prove you wrong.” That just gets kind numbing and boring. She would be a more like able character if the writing still played that aspect of her character, but didn’t make it the constant focus of her every move and say so every time she made a decision. We can still pick that up as a part of her character just by seeing her awesome actions without having to be reminded constantly of her unbelievable need to prove herself as a powerful woman.

Wishing the main character wasn't sexist

Cannot seem to make it through a single paragraph without at least one sexist statement, inference, or internal monologue containing derogatory assumptions of the MC. This took so much away from the story that it became unlistenable.

Too much women empowerment not enough story.

Could have been a good book but the author decided to turn into a women empower story.

Should have just let there be a strong female character who overcame great challenges. This story has too many outdate stereotypes and filled with social injustice complaining. I wanted to be entertained not lectured throughout the story.

Woman power is over the top

The story is mediocre, the whole "I'm no damsel in distress" gets old quick. The endless "I won't stand for any man to think less of me" and it's like is fine IN MODERATION.

I mean I'm all for women being equal and all, but this is so annoyingly done, over the top, sjw nonsense.

The narrator was pretty good, not one of the best I've heard but I liked her and would listen to more by her. She has a decent range of voices and I can tell when a different characters voice is being used easily.

Also how the girl becomes a caption of a ship after being on the sea for less than week is beyond idiotic. Would you let someone who started training on your job be your supervisor after a single week of job training? I sure would hope not.

Story rates a 2 of 5 (when compared to the original series)
Narration rates 4 of 5

I will NOT be continuing the series, this spin off shouldn't have happened.

could be better

Remove the gaslighting, the sexism, the false moral quandary, and it would be better. The parents motivation for gaslighting is weak. the sexism... I get it you hate men. you're a bigot, hooray. the moral quandary? angst over how killing is wrong, but she just can't keep from straight up murdering a fool every five minutes. because... uh... reasons.

Accidental Fan

A solid follow-up to The Traveler triliogy. I admit listening to the sample made me question about making the purchase. After all, what do I know of spoiled teen age girls? Yet I trust Jamie Davis as an author and his willingness to freely interact with me via email made me click the purchase button.

I would have missed out if I had not listened to yet another incredible work by Jamie Davis! His story writing and character development is super. He writes with humor, excitement, tension and gives me the desire to keep listening. If this were a paper book, I'd not want to wait to turn the page to see what happens next.

This is the first to hear Stacie Gonzalez and her work was fantastic. Her portrayl of each character was very good and by her voice, I have a picture of each character in my mind. She used inflection, timing including pauses and stressed words to create a vivid world.

I am eagerly waiting the next in The Champion series.

Don't listen to the chauvinistic reviews.

It wasn't like those negative reviews are saying, it elude to some men being demeaning but not all men. The negative reviews are completely unjust.

Great series

Greta series, read the Accidental Traveler series and now this. The story and writing is good and keeps me hooked.
The narration is good though I did find it hard to distinguish between some of the male characters.
