Publisher's Summary

Karna was just like any other comic book fan. He dreamed of fighting alongside colourful heroes and taking down dastardly villains.

In Titan Online, the most popular VR MMORPG going, he finally got the chance to live out his cape-donning fantasies.  

That is, right up until he was killed by the game’s number one ‘hero’. A man who serves only himself in a constant grind for money, fame and adoration. Forced to start from scratch due the harsh game mechanics, Karna finds a new mission: bringing balance back to Titan Online.   

With a strange new power and some unlikely allies, Karna hatches a plan to save the game and get a bit of revenge in the process.  

When the heroes can’t be trusted, it’s up to the villains to save the (virtual) world.

really isn’t that good

it’s not that the writer is poor it’s just that it isnot interesting ... its dry long winded and no character growth... author tried to turn villains intoantiheros and heros in to villains and wanted to use game logic to do it which means you don’t have an ai you have a decision tree ... but this is supposed to be top class ai and i don’t even know just poorly done ... it had possibly of being good but just comes up short chapter after chapter

Great

I think that you have a lot of potential in this book to work with. So keep up the good work and I hope you do more with this story.

I was tricked

You ever start a book, like the concept, well written. Then you get half way through it and realize absolutely nothings happened. That you’ve spent 6 hours listening to the MC complain that someone is too popular/powerful. But you’ve invested too much time to not see what happens. So you start to skip, and skip. And each time it’s still him complaining. Then you just say f it and stop listening w/ 3 hours left. That’s this book.

A bit too whiny.

Alot of complaining, eye rolling, and heavy sighs. that sums up the main character. nothing is good enough for him, and he always focuses on the negative about everything.

Quest givers?? complaining paranoia. Awesome rare new class?? sighs, complaints, and eye rolling. the keystone point of a hardcore mode super hero game is permadeath?? whinging. It goes on and on.

The point of the main guy here is to point out everything that's wrong with the game world, and complain about it at all times.

He is also somehow surprised at how effective teamwork is in a mmorpg...

Nobody likes whiners. Nobody. likes. whiners.

The narrator captures the entitled and whiny voice perfectly, so props there.

Better than I thought was going to be

liked the book overall. Towards the early parts there were portions that kind of took me out of it. but all is well it kept me coming back.
