New worlds get new kings, and that’s exactly what Abby thinks she’s found in her boss’ hacked code.
With a cataclysmic asteroid careening toward Earth, the VRMMORPG project Viridian Gate Online has become more than just a game, and Abby thinks her boss, Robert Osmark, wants to be more than just its founding father.
Now, Abby holds a hacked key to the kingdom that could earn her a punishment worse than death. To uncover the secret that drug lords and corrupt politicians paid millions for, Abby must dive into the game she helped create and team up with one of its AI creations. It’s a race against the clock as she tries to discover what’s hidden in the secret code before Osmark can crown himself ruler over all that remains of humanity.
From James A. Hunter—author of Viridian Gate Online, Rogue Dungeon, War God's Mantle, and the Yancy Lazarus Series—and debut author J.D. Astra, comes an epic new entry into the Expanded Universe of Viridian Gate Online that you won't want to put down!

The main character (MC) Abby is featured in the main VGO series, but now she has her own. The story follows Abby’s search for what Osmark has hidden in the game, her class quests, and the events of the main VGO series right up to where Grim Jack gets the Imperial Seal, but just from Abby’s point of view. I’ll be honest, the novel wasn’t bad but it didn’t work for me. I liked seeing what neat powers Abby’s firebrand class has and some of the quests, but there wasn’t any tension because I knew that she was always going to be ok since I’ve already read the main VGO series and I already knew where the big plot points of the story were going.
