Publisher's Summary

Bastion was supposed to mean safety. It was supposed to mean a break from fighting for their lives and a chance to talk to someone who might actually know what’s going on. Access to their gold and some beer would have been nice, too.

They got none of those things. When they arrive in the capital, Tina and James find a city on fire in more ways than one. Players and non-players hunt each other in the streets, while the king who controls the city’s all-powerful artifact cowers from the chaos in his castle. Desperate to warn somebody about the Once King’s coming invasion, James wants to try to talk to the king anyway, while Tina just wants to meet the royal portal keepers who might be able to send them home.

It shouldn’t be hard to get an army of the world’s best-geared players through one city, but when they discover that the captain of the Royal Knights has been massacring low-level players in revenge disguised as justice, James and Tina will have to decide which is more important: the lives of their fellow gamers, or the stability of their new world’s last great city. Both choices deserve a champion, but with the Once King’s armies closing in, taking the wrong side may doom everyone to an eternity as slaves to the Ghostfire.

immersion breaking dialogue

The characters in this book are on rail road tracks. All of the characters, with the exception of silent blade, a side character, never grow or adapt at all; the situation can be dire but the characters show zero flexibility.

The worst part about this book is that the author introduces immersion breaking dialogue about gender fluidity(throughout book) and man shames( middle of book) about rape and implies that all men are rapist( near end of book). The problem with these references about gender fluidity and rape culture is they are not thought provoking, nor do they add to the book in any way, they are just kind of dumped into the book like the author is ranting.

Overall, the book lacks depth and is too immersion breaking due to too many rape culture rants and gender fluidity lectures.

Another great book

An excellent continuation of the story! I've really enjoyed this series, the characters that annoy me are products of their past and it makes sense, I can be frustrated with them and like them because I know how they became who they are.

Excellent tale and telling

I.listened to the audiobook first. Epic, intense. The narration was a definite add here. Quite a thrilling production. Storywise, I wasn't expecting the intensity of when they realized that the people they were killing were real. Real edge if my seat, can't stop listening story.

4 star's

Love this series so far can't wait for the next installment.

Narrator was great.
Story expanded on the first.
A handful of glitches but didn't have much if any effect on the story.
