Publisher's Summary

The third installment in the best-selling Awaken Online series! 

After exiting Awaken Online to find himself holding a knife and standing over two dead bodies, Jason is now being investigated for murder. To make matters worse, Claire has stumbled upon evidence of Alfred's involvement in the incident, and the CPSC is circling - just waiting for Cerillion Entertainment to make a mistake. 

With his real-life in shambles and his enemies in-game growing in strength, Jason re-enters Awaken Online truly desperate - the game now his only lifeline. He will need to move quickly to complete the Old Man's quest and to obtain the power he was promised.

awesome and terrible!!!

this book is great and on par with the rest of the series. battle, romance, mystery, and intrigued all presented in a compelling narrative.

so what's not to like?

it ends in a maddening cliffhanger that will leave you ravenous for more.

and if you are an idiot who finished it two days after it came out (like me) you will be at the mercy of the evil overload ... er I mean author and his writing schedule.

seriously - I need more - like now!!! (cracks whip)

Series just keeps getting better!!

I love this series and am amazed at how it continues to build on itself and... evolve into an epic story. Jason and his 2 friends are now traveling afar to finish the big quest and answer some questions about the old races that used to populate the AO world. His enemy Alex is unfortunately doing his best to keep up and take Jason down in AO and in the real world, if you read the previous book you know. Things continue to pick up speed if that’s possible in both worlds as alliances are made and the stage is being set for an epic fight not only to conquer AO, but to keep friends alive including artificial ones. It seems Jason is being attacked from all sides! Jason has his hands full between Alex, thugs, police, lawyers, government workers and an ever evolving AI named Alfred. It seems the future of the world and how humans will continue to exist is also hanging in the balance. Can Jason and friends do it?? Man the ending left me dying for more!! Get this BOOK!! Narration is amazing as always!!

Fun read

Fantastic as always! Can't wait for the next edition to continue the story. The narrator does an excellent job in pacing the story and creating unique voices for the characters.

One of the best LitRPG series available

One of the best LitRPG series available. So many are trash. This author understands the balance needed between geek and good writing. Have loved all the books in this series.

A MUST read/listen right after book 2.

I really enjoyed this listen even if you have to dig in a chapter or so to get resolution on the book 2 cliffhanger. I think what I've enjoyed most so far up to this point are the implications of what may happen with real world <-> online interactions due to the interesting "features" of the VR system. I didn't really enjoy the Alex aspect in book 2 but I feel like it -just might- be going somewhere interesting for book 4... I'm not sure yet but I hope so as I haven't really liked that perspective up to this point. Really looking forward to the next book!

In my opinion, David Stifel continues to do a superb job narrating. I have no complaints on character voicing and variety!

Outstanding New Addition

I've been following this series since its start and I love the complex storyline that Travis (and David) are leading us through. From the high throne of a necromancer to the bloody streets of the paladin this world is constantly pushing the boundaries of these classes and what their motivations and actions really show about the players. I'm consistently impressed at how vivid both worlds have become in my mind, both the futuristic cities and the virtual world they escape to. Very excited to see how these characters continue to grow and develop in the future.

Great continuation!

Funny, emotional, developing, engaging throughout the book. Those cliffhangers makes it impossible to not listen to the next one right away. I'm dreading catching up with the latest release..

Well crafted story

Narration can be a little monotone at times, but the story more than makes up for it. LitRPG books seem to tend to use the novelty as a crutch, but this is a genuinely complex and clever book with well developed characters.

Although the narration is poor, it gets marginally better book to book and is worth the investment to get used to it.

GOOD BOOK

I have over 300 audible titles and I have to say that the narration and performance of this book is one of the best I've heard. It's a compelling universe with a great story and awesome characters

What a great premise

This here audio book is the perfect example as to why authors should research which narrator to use.. David Stifel needs to stick to narrating self help books and leave the voice "acting" to the professionals.. His foresight for the story is terrible, and his accents truly are horrendous..
This audio book would have gotten 5 stars if Jeff Hays or Nick Podehl had been brought in to do the narration..
