Publisher's Summary

Step inside a new reality...a virtual reality

A reality that could change Michael forever!

Archaic Venture, a brand new virtual reality video game, is hot off the press, and it is selling like hotcakes. However, the creator of the game, Soto Akiyama, has thrown in a twist. The game will no longer function correctly until someone defeats the evil spirit plaguing the lands of Archaic Venture. Along with returning Archaic Venture to normal, there is a cash prize that goes with it.

For Michael Maddox, a 16-year-old who suffers from cerebral palsy and a dysfunctional home life, this game, and that money, could turn his entire life around.

Come, join the adventure of a boy who knew he would never amount to much as he discovers just how much he is worth.

Ready Player One, but less AND more epic

Especially if you've enjoyed books like Reafy Player One. It relies significantly less on reference and nostalgia, and stands firmly on its own as a good story.

Definitely worth a listen

Engaging characters, interesting conflicts and a very cool world. I think that last point was the biggest draw for me, though in general it was a fun and relatively stress-free romp. The ending did fall a little flat, but I'm certainly eager for the sequel.

Good Overall...

I enjoy your astrology study guides immensely! You have a natural ability at Astrology as well as teaching it. I love your flow charts. I find them so orderly and a wonderfully easy way of listening the sequence of events in a person’s life.

Awesome Book!!!

Enjoyed a fairly light hearted approach to litrpg. Decent character building. Better quality prose than most of the genre. Will read the next in the series.

The book gave real value.

Especially now with the VR game systems. What an idea of using a sensory deprivation type tank as a way to experience the "reality" of a holographic/VR game. Come on you game and game systems creators, make this real!

pretty awesome

I found this book a bit more difficult to get into than this author's previous works. This is likely due to the time at the beginning spent explaining certain aspects of the game. Once I got past that it was a good listen. Would recommend.
