Cryogenic freezing is incomplete, the body is frozen while the mind slowly turns to mush.
As a solution, the United States forces 100 million 'volunteers' to upload their minds to the Artificial Neural Kinesthetic Habitat (ANKH) servers.
Servers that will recreate the consciousness to one of five different starting planets, so long as they can make their way out of the starting area.
Everyone is given seven lives to get enough points to be chosen for resurrection on the new planet.
The game is rigged.
The rich have purchased improved starting locations, abilities, and additional lives.
There is a chance, sell your starting lives for starting powers and abilities. The more starting lives traded, the greater the rewards offered.
The only problem? Powers earned in this manner will no transfer upon death, unless you are rich.
Who will live?
Will anyone survive the trip to the new world?
My Opinion: 348 pages, $1.49, Available on Kindle Unlimited
It took me almost a week to finish the novel and I found this to be a hard book to enjoy after the 15% mark. The first section is pretty enjoyable, with the setup of the main character (MC) being sent to the game world and him creating his character reasoning out the pros and cons of the flaw system and trading lives for bonuses. The main character is OP, which is fine, but once he gets his psychic powers leveled (about the 15% mark) there stops being any real combat challenges for the MC. And there isn't another kind of challenges to make up for that. No social or emotional growth or anything like that.
Additionally, there are a huge number of character sheets. It comes to something like 8-10 pages after each chapter, which got annoying after a while.
Overall, the combat is good, but after a while the OP aspect stopped being entertaining without any other real challenges. If you can overlook at or just really love an Over Powered story, you might like this more than me, but it just misses good for me.
Score: 6 out of 10
