Amazing. Innovative story with a tried and true structure. The blend of epic fantasy with underlying idea that reality, despite the apparent realness of virtual reality, is still the only true reality makes this story complex and provides context to the central struggle. Highly entertaining, it kept me engaged and made it difficult to put the story down until I was done. I knew how the story would end, at least in broad strokes, because there was really only one ending that was possible to this story. Even so, I was on the edge of me seat and felt anxious for the safety of the main characters. I recommend this book to any person who enjoys videogames/80's nostalgia.
