Publisher's Summary

A side quest adventure in the best-selling world of Awaken Online!  

Eliza's parents are relentless - forcing her to constantly take extra courses to prepare for college and medical school. Sometimes, it feels like her entire life has already been planned out. 

Which is why she leaps at the chance to escape into a new virtual reality game, Awaken Online. What she wasn't expecting was to encounter a capricious god and his loyal "pet". Or to be chosen as this god's "avatar" within the game and forced to tackle a series of asinine quests.  

Yet she just can't shake the feeling that there is more to the irritating god than first meets the eye.  

(This story is intended to be book 5 in the Awaken Online series. It should be listened to after Awaken Online: Evolution.)

More, Need More!

This story world is amazing. I think Travis Bagwell created a new environment where literally anything can happen and never ending stories can be told, even if they end up being a zillion side quests all happening during the same main storyline. I am super excited for more from this author.

David Stifel's reading of this series is also a lot of fun :-)

one of the best side characters i have ever listen

this story hits close to my heart Eliza the main character's life is so much like my own childhood with parents having expectations that were so vastly different from my own desires. i felt a kind of weird peace listening to the story unfold. i know this doesn't do well as a review but i jus felt i neefed to share my thoughts on the book.

Another great story

I've enjoyed every book from this series and this may be my favorite. It's both funny and serious, has very interesting character development, unique weapons and battle strategy. I look forward to the next one.

Awesome!

This book ended up being so much better than I had expected it would be! It was a welcome break from the main line of the adventure too.

Another great book! (some spoilers below)

Oh man, I love the characters that Bagwell creates. Their stories and backgrounds are solid and real. I love that Eliza has been added into the mix, and is another champion of a God like Jason. Eliza is a great charcter with her own problems and drives, her struggles are well written as well is her growth. I can't wait to see her grow and develop as she travels with Original Sin. Lmao I want to see Jason's reaction if/when (please Bagwell!) he finds out that she created a biological weapon by accident!
I also can't wait t see how the gods meddling will influence or not influence jason and Eliza as champions. Eliza already is suspicious of the Hippy, and Jason is no push over either. I wonder if they would stick together even if their respective gods dont????
Overall I loved Elizas back story, it really gives her character more depth and a better understanding of her personality. Another great book by Travis Bagwell, recommend 10/10!

Great sidequest

This is written to take place before book 3. I really enjoyed how much more you learn about what happened in book 3 from it.

Intro to Eliza, the Water Deity, and Fluffy

This books goes back and introduces how Eliza started Awaken Online and met Jason. It should be read after the events in the main series. The story is both a comedy, with an erratic God and his sensible pet sheep Fluffy, and serious with Eliza's growth.

Excellent story, but a bit slow during the first half.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series. The only reason I gave 4/5 stars for the story was that it took a little over half the book to really get going. The story development took longer than usual. But once it got going, it was 5/5. The ending was very strong. I appreciate that we are getting to see how this new character was developed, prior to meeting Jason. Also, her quests were interesting.

Another beautifully crafted perspective.

Apathy(side quest) Breathes more life into an already interesting character. A very different perspective than the main story line and very well developed. Also Fluffy has some brilliant dialogue.

Great origin story.

Although this is a "side quest" it is a brilliant story all on its own. It would be great to have more dedicated books following Eliza's story- don't let her disappear into the background and become just another of Jason's companions!
