Publisher's Summary

Spooky and Joe are in a gaming reality where it is quickly becoming clear that it is quite real. They are forced to fight monsters, dungeons, and betrayal, but their greatest enemy might be denial. Both Joe and Spooky are now nearly immortal, but how will Joe react when the facts of the situation can no longer be denied? He may never see his late wife in the afterlife.

How will Spooky deal with the changes within herself? Neither she nor her co-Champion have the option to become mere mortals again.

Listen as Joe and Spooky continue to grow their capital in people, skills, equipment, and magic.

Act untrustworthy, not a problem... Until caught

Our hero is making great strides in his pursuit of video game stardom. Unfortunately he isn't in a video game. But so far that hasn't given any trouble.

truths are told but is anybody listening?

as we have seen in the first book They're not in Kansas anymore this is a marvelous progression showing the tensions conflicts that arise when when someone is put into a situation of not being able to realize the difference between gameplay and reality and what that would happen if you were an artificial intelligence and how you would deal with balancing emergence with programming and duty to your client

Bad performance

While I really liked the story, the performance wasn’t that good. Sometimes he goes quiet like he gets further away from the mic he speaks in. Other times, sometimes not really noticeable but it seems like he hesitates reading some words.

Infuriating

Why would someone with that much worldly experience give so much power to an AI that he has know for an hour and had already demonstrated tendencies toward being manipulative and controlling?

Spooky is the problem

I am so sick of spooky calling him dumb and then not explaining anything to him. I am so done with her bitc#y attitude. She dose nothing to help the mc she only cares about herself.

The first book was slow I thought it was the opening and it will improve in the next book but this book disappoints and slow in its development

More story

To much time spent on spooky and not much has really happened in two books for what is great story potential

Pretty blah.

Story hasn't really progressed much besides the leveling of the two co-champions, that and spooky gaining some insight into her/itself. Main plot is for the most part, completely absent. I get the feeling after many more books come out it will be better, but after two it's just dragging.
