Publisher's Summary

Daniel's (updated) guide to early retirement, version 2.0:

  1. Intercept illegal money transfer from mafia boss. (Complete success. Except for the part where I was discovered and almost caught.) 
  2. Hide out in super-exclusive full immersion virtual reality game until the heat is off. (Doing fine so far. They may have figured out that I’m in-game. Still, it’s a huge game, so no problem, right?) 
  3. Roll a bard. Max out charisma. Live it up. (Two out of three ain’t bad. We’re just postponing the "live it up" part a bit.) 
  4. Profit. (Still almost two years to go for that. Think happy thoughts!)

He could have been way worse off. Sure, Daniel was stuck in-game as the local bard of a quaint village, but people were nice, the quests juicy, and the lore intriguing. Even so, with the mob on the look-out, Daniel would soon find himself sorely tested to avoid detection.

Disclaimer: Still no harems in this series, even with a bard MC. Go figure. We’re going light on the cursing and less light on the puns. You were warned.

MORE! Like right now please.

Great story just like the last one and a even better performance from the narrators and the music makes it all truly amazing.

Excellent

I really enjoyed this book, I think it's a great sequel and enjoy the production that went into it. I'm excited for the follow up book

Ugh. I guess they had a deadline

Yeah it’s bad. The reader is probably the saving grace of this book.

Compared to the first book this book feels like they had no idea where to take the story and wrote various sections and then threw in a paragraph to connect the two.

The revelation of the wanted poster is the first example of this. WHY was his first reaction like the way it was. There were probably a thousand other ways to get to the connection point, but apparently the writers didn’t want to put in the effort( with so many writers, how is that possible). It could have gone a whole lot smoother...expanded the depth of the story,etc.

It was so grating, I skipped minutes and minutes until I could get back into the story. ...and then it starts to fall apart again.

It could have been better.

Felt like a side quest.

Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed the book but it felt like setup for book three.
