Publisher's Summary

If you're a warrior seeking glorious feats, we need you! The walls of the Maragar Citadel are always in need of heroes!

Or are you a wizard in search of forgotten lore? One visit to our Ancient Library will reveal you many a great mystery!

Or are you an online player craving excitement? Then you'd better hurry! The Maragar Citadel is rife with adventure-choose one to your liking!

Performing deeds of online valor is the last thing on Oleg's mind, though. Neither does he care about any ancient lore. He's never trusted adventure, anyway. Mirror World is no place for the likes of him. Still, he's here to stay - at the demand of Reflex Bank, which has granted him a loan for his daughter's hospital treatment. Which is the only reason he's joined the ranks of the defenders of the Maragar Citadel.

    "good"

    Well it was a well done book. The one thing that bugged me is that I wish I would speed up the narration just a bit. The narration is to slow, and it bugged me.

    "Story could be ..."

    The story had lots of potential and it was fun to follow, but the pace and unneeded material slowed it up.

    I had to speed it up just to keep from getting bored.

    Plus I am confused by Oleg. At times he is an idiot with no common sense and other times he is bright. At one moment he is scared of everything (even though he cannot take damage) and next he is brave. He has money issues, and wants to and needs to save every penny, but then he throws cash around like it is nothing. The inconsistency was annoying.

    "story gets better, narattor still anoyingly slow"
    Any additional comments?

    For a second book in a series its good, the story gets better, main character gets more debt. only thing that annoys me is that the narrator is reading a bit slow.

    "chopped up"

    My only problem is that it feels like one book split up into several. I found it very enjoyable though.

    "Nevermind... nevermind... nevermind..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    sure, it was a decent and entertaining book


    Any additional comments?

    The main character has started to get incredibly repetitive. His catchphrase.. Never mind. He says it about 1-5 times per chapter and now i cringe every time i hear it. Either the writer has started getting lazy after the first book or else I just started noticing his repetitive style the more of his writing I listen to. either way I hope the third book is better but so far its not. Still a good book. still gonna finish the series but it could have been great if the writing wasn't so blah.

    "Maybe better than the first"

    The classic RPG Lit character build-up without the boring repetitive parts. The story has some elements found in other similar books. It beats many of them by offering 3 different story levels.

    "Great series!"

    I liked the second book much more than the first so stick it out with the series even if you thought the first book was only ok, it does get much better. Where the first book goes between real life and the game, I really enjoyed this one focusing almost entirely on Mirror World. I am very much looking forward to book 3 and am happy I started this series!

    Story
    "Gives me my hit of mmo without playing one"

    I must say, I was left wanting for the sequel to the first book. Almost like wanting to play the next level of a game I just got. I do find it a bit annoying that everything seems to go right for him but it gets explained a bit which I can live with. I dunno what it is about this series... maybe its the power gamer in me but I really enjoy it...i feel like i get rare loot when he does and really share in his experience because I can relate so well to the gaming world. If only I live to see the day mirrorworld becomes a reality!

    "Second in series, and doesn't disapoint"

    The continuing tale of Oleg is good and the story has developed in a different way from the first book so the developing story arc is great. Good character and good world description. Read the first book as doesn't go well out of order, but do read them both.
