Redemption: The Rise of Resurgence Book III


Resurgence is hiding a secret. It’s taken Alex months to find it…but find it he has! There is only one problem: it might just be an unbeatable force that he can’t defeat on his own. Luckily, Alex has never been without his group of friends, ready to join him for any challenge.

Fighting through a quest that shouldn’t exist – and acquiring items that no one else has access to – Alex thinks there may be hope. However, it will take more than a few pieces of unique gear to conquer the lands of Resurgence.

Say what you will about Alex – his teammates certainly do – but Chance is usually on his side, even when he doesn’t know it. While Alex pushes the boundaries inside of Resurgence, a cadre of special agents works on the outside to uncover any advantage to use against AltCon, the company behind the game.

Alex will face new foes, use his unique abilities in ways he never imagined, and maybe – just maybe – find a way to win!

My Opinion: 494 pages, $3.99, Available on Kindle Unlimited

Full disclosure: I received an advanced copy for review, I purchased the novel when it became available.

It took me a little while, like 15% of the story, to really remember all the details about who everyone was, their powers, roles, storylines, etc. It’s been over a year since the last book came out.

Book 3 in the series has solid writing, it is entertaining, but there aren’t a lot of surprises. The good things from the series are still there: the group banter, good MMO fights, and adventuring. There’s a minor amount of advancement of the evil corporation vs government arc for most of the story. The cyber thriller aspects in the novel don’t really exist anymore, and while the in game stories are entertaining, they feel a little disconnected from the real world storyline.

Overall,  it is entertaining if you’re a fan of the series but it doesn’t really try to do anything new and instead coasts a bit on what worked with book 2.

Score: 7.1 out of 10
