Publisher's Summary

Somnia is evolving, and Murmur is confronted with enemies both old and new. She must lead her guild, Fable, through a dungeon filled with riddles and puzzles to claim the first of 12 keys required to achieve victory. But things are not as they seem: Glitches abound, enemies rally against Fable, and unexpected threats move in the shadows.

As the system becomes increasingly complex, Laria and Shayla battle through mismatched coding, and Storm Corp discovers they’ve left some anomalies in the game out of their reports. Anomalies like Wren. 

With the report deadline looming and errors riddling the system, Laria’s house of cards is about to come crashing down.

Great listen; rough cliffhanger

Great addition to the series, but the ending was quite abrupt. Felt like everything is up in the air as the book ended

Snooze Fest

Ugh. About halfway through. Not sure if I can continue. Book 3 and MC is STILL raging at her friends for not telling her she was uploaded to the game. Same boring intrigue about AI who are out to get her, her mother STILL whiny and guilty about daughters condition. This is book 3 people. Let's move on and get over it. Boooooorrrrriiiiiiiinnnnnnnngggggggg!!!!!!!!!!!!

Murmur is back and ready for battle

Whelp, we make it back to the land of Somnia, and things have really improved. If you saw my review of the last book you’d know that one of my biggest issues was the war that Murmur just snapped over her predicament and how it sort of drove the entire story. Well, good news, while we see a few brief glimpses of her anger over how she was treated for the most part, this book just gets back into the business of her leveling and learning bits and secrets of the world she is trapped in. Honestly, this is the way the last book should have gone. Murmur’s acceptance could have come a lot sooner and the way she dealt with her coming to terms with things.
As things go, the book picks up where the last one left off, but also picks up its tone. To me the last book was really about some self pity and misplaced anger. This book returns to the hopeful Murmur that I really enjoyed before. The other characters also transition from background people to actually having some sort of personalities and depth other than protect Mumur. Not that they weren’t developed before, but here they all get chances to shine.
Mur and her team tackle two dungeons, in search of some keys to the world that will provide them with greater power to deal with upcoming events. I want to stress that is a pleasant surprise to not just get hampered down with the usual smash and slash mentality that usually infuses LIT novels. The characters actually think and use their heads in order to succeed. It’s nice to get that, even though I can respect the other just as much. I like a good beheading just as much as seeing someone use their head in a game.
Its also nice to see Hanna changing the game up with the AI stuff as well. There is far more afoot than even the top game controllers seem to know, which means either things are really going pear shaped in the game, or one of the AI’s is flat out lying about what they know. If it’s the latter I know everyone is going to be putting their money on a certain crazy AI who just wants to eat braiiiiiiins, but I don’t think he is that sneaky.
Either way, this story has some real depth, and the danger that Mur is in continues to grow, both inside and outside of the game world. She is only partially aware of what is really going on around her and of all the plots that stand to kill her permanently one way or another. I think Hanna really got her footing back with this story, and that’s not to say that she didn’t do well on book two, but you can plainly see that she gained her traction back with this book. The characters all pop, the plot is no longer derailed by Murmur’s anger, and seems amped up with the growth that she is finally beginning to display. While Mur seems to grow more in levels than she does emotionally this book finally gives us both, and it was pretty cool. I enjoyed this.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll repeat myself here. Andrea Parsenau just continues to grow as a narrator. The woman can infuse so much emotion into the most minute dialogue that it forces me to say that not all of the best actors are on screen or win academy awards. She vocally animates this book, and brings it to life in a way that is rarely captured on screen. For an audiobook it is absolutely magical. She makes me see facial expressions that are fully realized when a character speaks, and she can drive a scene like Mario Andretti in the Mach 5. I apologize to anyone under the age of thirty that did not get that reference. All I can say is look it up. Point is this lady is true master vocalist and she can tell a story.

Final score is an 8.3 stars. This serialized novel finally feels like it has a purpose and a direction that the first one had, and I am glad to see it get some serious legs.

Loved it!

I enjoyed the third book in the Somnia Online series, and I'm looking forward to discovering where this story will go next. Andrea Parsnaeu did a fantastic job, as always.

3 down

I don't know but I feel I should apologize. I have been growing bored with Murmur, I find more of my interest going towards Rash. Here's hoping things change with Murmur, but Rash is my favorite character. of course a large part of that is our completely different play style, where Wren finds my style annoying as well.

Good character development

I like seeing how Murmur continues to come to terms with what is happening. I love seeing where her character is headed and how each realization changes her course.

Intense!

Back into the world of Somnia. Things are getting intense. People are stretched thin, emotions running rampant and the game is getting tougher as they level up. Wren's mind is feeling the strain of it all. I hope Telvar and the others can get it figured out!

Awesome

As the difference in reality becomes less and less for her I find her thoughts going more dark. And after this last great fight to have the system crash leave it in a very dangerous place. Absolutely can't wait to start the next one.

Wow

I didn't realise I was nearing the end of the book until it finished. I was thoroughly engaged and enthralled throughout this instalment. An enchanting listen, with a consistently amazing performance by the narrator. The story progresses well, and I can't wait to see what happens next.

Good story starts going bad

Ok, this book gets a -1star because it did not learn from the last one and just continues the mistakes.

So much complaining. So much contradiction. So much overhyped teen drama.
The series was good but now it seems to be 90% winging, whining and bitching.
"Hurry up everyone, we need to grind grind and be the best or someone will beast us", "OMG, this hardcore grinding is taking too much of a toll on my friends and i...we need to slow down or rest". I'm so pissed that everyone is keeping secrets from me!! there should be no secrets!!!", "I can't tell anyone what i can do, i must keep it a secret"
And as another reviewer nicely said;
"Conversations are repeated over and over. Drama you thought was resolved in the last book is suddenly at the front of everyone's mind again. Characters continue to act like complete morons, and the main character continues to grow ever more overpowered while utterly failing to even make the slightest attempt at actually using her abilities for basically anything."
Narration is A+ like always.
