My Opinion: 483 pages, $3.49, Available on Kindle Unlimited
A fine sequel. It captures all the adventure from book 1 and kicks it up a notch with better pacing. The storytelling in book 2 is much tighter and though the plot arc sometimes gets a little twisty as you follow the characters on their many side quests, the path always leads you back to the main storyline. There’s good level and skill training, good group banter, and of course good LitRPG action-adventure.
Score: 7.6 out of 10
