However, if you lose then everything your character owns including items and money is forfeited and that person must create a new in-game character.

In order to help his local friends, Harald challenges Central Allocations hoping to remain unknown to them, but his character is identified and he is exiled once more.

It gives the impression that the author ran out of energy, imagination or time and just jumped to the next part of the story.

This is probably almost guaranteed for a story based on a gaming world. And now for the awards. I give it the following positive awards, which the author and publisher will probably like.

Each award is out of five. They can die as opposed to the humans who only leave the world when they die and this creates genuine empathy for them as they risk their lives.

I also give it the following awards which the author and publisher may not appreciate quite so much. Since it is a gaming world it is hard not to have the key bad guy simplistic so I have decided to be generous and there is only one white cat.

To summarize, this is a good story, fast paced and exciting.

In the second book it seemed as though the world lived on like the big things that happened in the previous book did not happen.
