This book only gets three stars, but if I had it to do again I would still read this book. I liked the plot most of the time and didn't feel like I was reading a re-write of a plot I'd read a million times before. However, there are definitely things that could have/should have been done differently.

The Beginning - I had a hard time getting into this book right away because I've never played a role playing game so I couldn't picture exactly what was going on.

The Middle - it had some good actio

To put it simply, I didn’t enjoy the book however I would read anything else the author wrote in a heartbeat. The characters were unique, the dialogue was clever, and overall it was well written but I just couldn’t become engrossed in the original gaming premise (and as such was left dissatisfied with the ending).

I enjoyed this book, lots of action and all the characters we're a lot of fun. I liked the idea of a Role playing game becoming real and the watching the characters turn into the characters they created for the game.

I did have some unanswered questions about this book but its such a fun read that I would still recommend it and want to read the sequel if there ever is one.

This book was ok, but would have benefited from some editing. There were a number of places where the paragraph suddenly didn't make sense. I think it would also have worked better if the characters had either been referred to by their real world or DarkAge names, rather than just randomly cycling between them. I also found the ending disappointing, with no real outcome.

Almost didn't get to the better parts. Even then I wouldn't call it great. Very slow to get started and quite juvenile throughout. Disappointing because the idea had such possibility. I really wanted to like this oone but it just didn't happen.

An interesting (if unoriginal) idea let down by unfulfilled promises, a chaotically meandering plot and unnecessarily immature characters.
