Wow... don't let them cryogenic freeze your brain or they might upload you into a virtual 'Zombie' computer game for paying viewers, to pay the bills! Great concept with a 'bad' main character who is used to looking after himself and doesn't play well with others, and his sexy but aggressive and submissive female sidekick. The story is fast paced with plenty of action along with graphic sex & violence. A great fun read for fans of Daniels work, already finished book 2 and now patiently waiting for book 3.
In the Author's note the author explains that the 'farfetched', sexually mind-blowing Gothy is actually based on two real people. My wife has two comments: - "It could have been based off me!" - "I want her address"
We particularly enjoyed the prospective side bitch getting slapped down hard when she tried too hard to displace Gothy instead of joining her.
By way of review, this means take the author's warning about adult themes and graphic sex seriously. This is a solid dark litRPG story with significant romance subplot that manages to be graphically kinky and overtly sexual while being adorably sweet and romantic under the surface. The other minor characters also get fleshed out personalities that feel real and develop over time without stealing the lime-lite with crude POV switching.
This author is a master storyteller. I recommend all of his works.
