Back in the Game
by Christopher Keene
"'Back in the Game' is the Empire Strikes Back of LitRPG,' you can quote me on that. Either way, a great second book with a fantastic twist that really has me guessing what's going to happen in book 3." —5 Star Reviewer
"Holy cow did the plot twists just blow my mind and the ending, wow. Definitely unexpected. This book also had more character development with new characters and even a world expansion. This a must read especially if you liked the first."—Tim Rios, 5 Star Reviewer
"Back in the Game does what a lot of sequels fail to do--be superior to the first."—5 Star Reviewer
"Like Stuck in the Game, Back in the Game really thrives and its action and environments always bright, vivid, and somehow both nostalgic and fresh. The expansion to steampunk settings again broadens the story. The fights are a perfect example of how much fun the LitRPG genre can be big, bombastic and exciting."—5 Star Reviewer
Noah has survived his time trapped in the virtual reality of the Dream State game and his body is on the road to recovery. His mind, however, cannot put the past behind him, knowing the company that ruined his life has escaped justice. With the evidence he needs to convict them held on a Transfer Orb hidden in the Dream State, Noah returns to help his friends reclaim it. However, someone has already beaten him to the punch.
FranktheTank is a newbie. When he happens across the Transfer Orb, he sees it as a big payday, something to boost his skills to the next level. As he tries to sell it off to the highest bidder, he begins to realize that something more than his avatar’s status is at stake.
In order to push the evidence to the public, Noah and his allies race to find Frank before Wona does. Empowered by new weapons and magic, Noah and his friends fight through, dungeons, monsters, and dragon nests, though only Noah knows what lengths Wona will resort to in order to keep its good name clean and its dark past a secret.
Can Noah fight the pull of the game to protect Wona’s victims?
