Ernment to limit her opportunities but evaded kidnapping by virtual slavers Co opted by several Virtual Security AI Leah has helped shut down a virtual sweat shop which used mind controlled players to farm for resources The family which runs the virtual crime syndicate has cornered Leah in the depths of a virtual mine and sent twenty player mercenaries to capture her Fleeing through a hidden doorway into a mirror mine operated by goblins Leah hopes to escape her pursue. Positive story with an engaging protagonist 16 year old Leah surprises everyone around her as she studies and games online and as she reaches out to give new opportunities to people from the slums like herself Leah progresses physically and emotionally both online and in real life and turns the tables on a very powerful family seeking to enslave hurt or control others The elements of LITRPG levels character points skill points etc are present but non gamers can enjoy the story without getting lost in the details For me the grinding during the Oddysey itself was too drawn out; repetitive killing of monsters that will later respawn is not my thing However what really drives the story are Leah's surprising and positive interactions with others including her acceptance of and respect towards beings that others would consider as worthy only of being killed Leah herself is way overpowered and getting stronger all the time but instead of looking down on others she is ready to sacrifice a lot to protect them and give them the opportunity to grow In fact her empathy is what opens the way for her greatest achievements which even the game developers do not expect This is the second book in the series There will be at least one after this The author's writing is decent there are a few unclear sentences here and there but overall not as many as with some indie authors Not as good as Nuttall Mixon or Stewart but much better than Akella Chatfield Mikhaylov or even Atamanov As to be expected with most indie authors there are a few scattered typos as well usually switching one word for another like try instead of trip Now my only uestions are will Leah's empathy and forgiveness eventually extend even to her persecutors And what will develop with her rather tentative faith which she picked up from her mother

Odyssey The Stork Tower #2Atherleah Carroll grew up in a negative tax family in the gang controlled suburbs of Brisbane at the end of the twenty first century From the age of six she decided that she wanted and with the help of her local gang leader she learned the skills to escape the relentless pressure to accept a life of mediocrity On her sixteenth birthday she was inadvertently implanted with a Neural Enhancement Chip instead of the free Government provided basic level personal AI This mis. Another great book with important topics to talk about and a good balance of action and compassion Atherleah approaches this gaming world with a mindset that allows her to excel and although it’s reaching at times it is very entertaining I also found myself enjoying her diary entries where she uestions her decisions and makes moral uandaries without being preachy towards the audience She kind of asks the uestions and let’s you ponder them I was very happy that she started branching out into different games and other virtual worlds and it’s something that really expands the setting Meredith continues to be a horrible possibility on how the rich could control that future and abuse their influence Maybe stuff like this is happening now too and it’s scary to think about The pacing is great and something I didn’t mention in the first book review but I very much enjoy how the action scenes are kind of summarized and not overly explained because too many of LitRPG books can’t make new and interesting encounters and it really drags it down not this one Started to notice some grammar and spelling errors towards the end but not too many It’s kind of on the border of 8 910 Would recommend
