Commit an online crime, go to an online jail. In this MMORPG penal colony, inmates PVP to gain EXP, loot, and most of all...survive.
Seph has been sentenced to play in one of these virtual correctional facilities. Sounds fun right? Maybe for some, but there is no worse punishment for Seph, mostly because he isn't a gamer. Will he be able to complete his sentence with all the trials and objectives thrown at him? Trapped in a virtual world he cannot escape, Seph now has to step outside of his comfort zone and align himself with the very thing he's been rebelling against his whole life--the system.
Game designer and avid gamer, P.A. Wikoff wrote this story as a love letter to a lifetime of gaming.
"this book from a seemingly unknown author to the genre really surprised me, the origin story, the gaming systems and character development were all spot on. the stats weren't as crunchy as some but crunchy enough to be entertaining and meaningful, and the way the author incorporates pvp and griefinng is perfect. the protagonist doesn't whine or wimper about getting ganked and killed and the author didn't make pvp the enemy like so many authors do giving their characters supercharged unrealistic abilities to somehow smash the pker. he treats it like it's just part of the game that you have to deal with and out smart not something to try and demonize and fetish kill. and I love that. great read 5 out of 5 can't wait for book 2" -audible review
