Publisher's Summary

Viridian Gate Online is more than just a game...and now, it's Alan Campbell's whole world.

Recently deceased and squishy as hell, Alan, a newly minted Illusionist, is forced to flee for his life. He needs time to deal with his loss, both in-game and IRL, but first he'll have to escape his crazy ex, the treacherous Firebrand, Thalia Daceran.

On his way to safety and revenge, he'll team up with Titus, the Imperial spymaster, as well as a crew of pirates, commandos, and even a shapeshifting Mimic with a taste for blood. His path leads to Wyrdtide, a gaslit city hidden in mists and governed by dark demigods.

But even with Alan dead, the world marches on. Will the government seize control of V.G.O.? Did Horace, the blind beggar, really die? And whatever happened to Jeff? Find answers, new purpose, and the machinations of the gods in this action-packed continuation of the Illusionist series.

Another Solid Addition

A wonderful performance by Daniel. Bodden and Hunter's addition to the story of VGO and Alan are interesting and I am looking forward to showing how Alan's current actions affect what comes after the other characters join the world. Looking forward to the third novel in the series.

Even better than the first

If you enjoyed the first book this is even better. The mechanics of the game continue to evolve as does our MC and his story. He’s not a moron and not really a Marty Stu. We get to meet several news characters and unlike most litrpg where the same tropes are used in typical situations, our authors mix things up and it works really well.

needs a sound effect for swapping character dialog

so, I really enjoyed the book. but all to often I listen to a new book and get really frustrated when there a is a character swap and there is no foretelling to let me know, just need a small noise that maybe flutters for bgm effect. but that is only a gripe. the only other thing I was irritated about was the less use of outside characters from outside the game. but I understand. this is a book about Alan. and not vgo and the work arounds characters
