There is not a lot I can say about this sequel without spoiling the book, but just let me tell you that if they decide to stick with that ending and the third book does too I am going to be very angry ........unless they make a superb job of salvaging the complete “mess” I believe they made with that ending on the third book...

I received a copy from the publisher (thank you!) in exchange for an honest review.
Hmm.. I’m a bit torn. I mean I enjoyed it but it just didn’t have the same magic as OtherWorld.
It was super easy to dive in at the start of OtherEarth and remember what happened previously (which is fabulous - I love being able to do that). It was still an easy read with a semi unexpected ending.
A seed started growing for me around the halfway mark - which was then confirmed for me at the end. Which hell

I was definitely not disappointed at all in this sequel to the book OtherWorld. In fact, I enjoyed it a bit more, giving it a 5 star rating instead of the 4 stars I gave to the first one. There was so much action in this book. All the bad guys we knew from the last one were still out there, searching for our heroes, and while some people had been rescued from the first book, others will still out there, waiting to be found. We had some new allies in this one, both inside Otherworld, and outside ...more

The first book was really enjoyable but I don't feel the need to read the next one.
Sara (A Gingerly Review)
Well that was something.

I loved the first book, Otherworld. I devoured it and failed to wait patiently for the sequel, OtherEarth. Well, this book was certainly something. It was easy to get back into the story and remember what was going on, but it felt like it was trying too hard to surpass the first book. It also had strong feelings of RPO and Warcross/Wildcard. I shouldn't have been comparing these two books to this particular story but I couldn't help it. Parts of this felt like fan-fiction
I’m gonna be honest I skimmed the last half of this book because I just didn’t care or like it that much. The first book was okay so I really wanted this sequel to be better but I just didn’t like it. The characters personalities weren’t consistent. The story was confusing. I don’t even know what they are trying to accomplish in this book and I have absolutely no idea what happens in the end. I didn’t have the motivation to read this because I just didn’t like it.

I received this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

Most of this book deserves more than the 3.5 stars I’m giving it, and I definitely enjoyed it more than the first - I think it felt settled into the storyline a little more. But THAT ENDING OMG. Im not going to spoil it, obviously, but it is a little genius and a lot frustrating. And that’s all I’ll say.

The rest of the book however - I liked the way they used Otherworld and the real world together, as well

I have no idea why I even attempted to read this. The first book was one of the worst VR books I have ever read. I truly wish these books lived up to their beautiful covers

Title: OtherEarth (Last Reality #2)
Author: Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller
Genre: YA/Sci-Fi
Rating: *****
Review: So the end of OtherWorld saw Simon entering the OtherWorld game for the final time with Busara’s help in order to rescue Kat from the Company which had been keeping her hostage in the game. However, this has left all three of them on the run from the Company and the person behind it all. The opening to OtherEarth was great, we begin to see how psychologically unprepared Simon

I had a bit of a hard time getting into this book. I want to preface what I’m about to talk about by saying that I am not averse to a male protagonist. Truthfully, I do prefer to read female protagonists (or non-binary protagonists, while we’re talking about it), but I have read some amazing books with teenage boy protagonists. I’ve talked recently about Soulbinder and how I’ve grown to love the male protagonist Kellen where I didn’t like him before. But pe

This book was so much better than the last one! 

Now Simon and Kat are together, and they unite with a few of the friends that they have made on their journey to try to destroy the Company and remove all the guests from Otherworld. Kat has saved many Children on her journeys, so they no longer have to fear them, and the team is determined to protect the Children from the guests. If they don't shut down the game, the Company will continue to use the "locked-in" patients as unwilling participants i

Otherearth is the second book in the Last Reality series. The first book was fairly enjoyable, so I decided to continue with the series. This one picks up pretty much right after the events of Otherworld. It has been a year since I read the first book, so it took me a bit to get reoriented to the world of the series. If you didn't read the first one, you will be lost in this one, so I don't suggest reading them out of order.

Otherearth wasn't as good as the first. It was OK. Again, it's told thr

Thank you to OneWorld Publishing and Netgalley for providing me with an eARC of this book. All opinions are my own


This was so much more fun and action packed than the first one. I really enjoyed the story line in this book and how we're introduced to more characters, while also keeping the original ones.

I liked seeing what happened to OtherWorld in the aftermath of the first book and during this one too.

I had high hopes for this. The first book in the series was so much fun to read. This however, was a slog. There were some exciting parts, for sure, but the back and forth between Otherworld and reality didn’t mesh well in this book. I felt let down by the ending as it didn’t wrap up he storylines and set up for a third book. Annoying!

Good book, but a little repetitive. The plot was mostly tied up loose ends from the first book and prepared for the next book. The ending was pretty great though. I'd just say classic second-book-itis.

I wanted to like this as much as the first book in the trilogy, but it was just too confusing for me. I won't pretend I understood all the different creatures or types of AI people encountered in the VR worlds. A clever idea but definitely warped.

So disappointed. I really enjoyed Otherworld and it does brisk business with my students at school, especially the gamers who like the concept. This one however just didn't reach the same heights. I was confused, bogged down, irritated all the time I was plodding through this. It felt like one of those books which goes "well this happened, then this happened and now this other thing is going to happen" it was also the victim of one of my pet hates in a story, "he said/she said" constantly to the ...more

I received a copy of OtherEarth from Bloomsbury Australia to review.

From the superstar team of comedian Jason Segel and young adult author Kirsten Miller comes the second book in their Last Reality series, OtherEarth.

Segel and Miller are an interesting team with some history, having previously written the Nightmares series together. While Segel is best known for his film, television and comedy work, Miller is an established young adult author, having written two additional series.

Following the events of Otherworld, Simon, Kat and Busara are on the run from the Company and their high-tech VR Gaming for knowing too much, but Simon can't leave the game yet. Things are only getting more dangerous and deadly as Otherworld becomes more and more real. There only hope is Simon's genius ex-roommate Elvis, who may be the only person smart enough to help them reveal the truth before it's too late.

Following up from the events of the last book, Simon is now on the run with Busara and Kat, and they are looking for a way to rescue Busara's father who was the original creator of the disc. Meanwhile, the Company restricts entry into the Otherworld for exclusively headset users, the number of which is limited, which means mostly rich ashholes are getting in, in a place where the worst of human impulses manifest.

I really loved Otherworld so when I saw OtherEarth on netgalley I just had to request it and I’m so glad I was approved! Thank you to OneWorld publications and Rock the Boat for providing me with an eARC.

So OtherEarth picks up right where OtherWorld ended and although it had been a while since I had read OtherWorld and was worried I wouldn’t remember what happened but as I started reading everything came rushing back to me. Like OtherWorld, this book was also fast paced and even more action pack

I thought when I read OtherWorld that I thought it would turn out to be a trilogy and it looks like I was right. So, to that end, I would really recommend you read that book first. There is catch up contained within this volume but it only really serves as a memory jogger rather than a replacement for reading book one.
So, Simon saved Kat and they are now on the run with Busara, fearing for their lives due to the knowledge they have gleaned about the Company and what it is really up to. They have

*Read for review at work for ROYAL*

This was another book chosen for me to read for review and sadly I did not have time to read the first book in the series before diving into this one. I read a general plot synopsis of the first book, Otherworld, and got the gist of there being an alternate reality like video game that’s supposed to provide gamers with a true virtual reality experience, but in the end is really quite flawed and instead of offering a second life, it has rendered many us

This was awesome! What a great follow-up to OtherWorld. OtherEarth makes you realize that Simon is even more complicated than we thought, and that even he might not have all the information he thinks he does. OtherEarth was more fast paced than OtherWorld, with a lot happening in just over 300 pages. It also ends on a huge cliffhanger just as Simon is starting to figure things out. While it took me 6 days to complete, my reading of the book only took 2.5 days. There was so much happening that I ...more

Wow, this was ten times better than the first book. I was a bit more connected to the characters, the worlds were all so amazing, the drama and interactions between the character were more detailed. I loved this!

Simon is still a humorous character. He has matured a bit and he's not as impulsive as before. I love the care he has for the Children of Otherworld and other people in the game. Simon has a huge heart and tries had to protect everyone. I fee

*Sigh*...I wanted to like this book so much...I got ECSTATIC when i found out there was a sequel to OtherWorld, which was such a fun and unique story. OtherWorld was filled with mystery of an entirely new sense of being that allows you to transport your mind to a whole other world inside of a game. The characters and the ideas and the side plots were all fascinating and made for such a quick read.

Then I read OtherEarth...No new concepts really, a couple new characters but nothing insane. It’s j
