Chronicle Book 2
Trial and Flame
by Kevin Murphy
Games are an escape? The fickle whims of the gods force Dakkon to take that sentiment literally. The announcement of some grand tournament doesn’t equate to glory when its thrust upon him and threatens the life of his best friend. In the virtual world called Chronicle anyone could be hunting them. To keep his unusual friend safe, Dakkon goes on the run. But—why not use laying low to your advantage? Staying off the grid might just beget opportunity with the right amount of luck. Avoiding well-traveled roads can certainly have its upsides. It’s the trips to unusual places where parties can collect unlikely prizes. What secrets will Dakkon’s group uncover when they, too, are trying not to be to be discovered? Just how worried should they be?

Well written and edited (a blessing in itself); good pacing, interesting characters and engaging storyline with plenty of action. I want more! Write, man! Write!
The story and universe are relatively unique. The reader doesn't get to learn a lot about the main character outside the game, just enough to give his life perspective. The majority of the story happens in the world of Chronicle.
I enjoyed the writing immensely. I found the main character to be relatable and sympathetic - unlike many in the LitRPG genre, he is neither a smartass nor a juvenile. He's instead someone who is primarily enjoying himself and taking in his surroundings with a large dash of wonder and excitement. There are obviously plot hooks scattered throughout the story but it adds to the sense of adventuring and taking in a new world instead of "oh, this is a sign of plot anchor #4". The progression is measured and helps to illuminate the world, not be in and of itself a barrier to the story. I am ready to read the next one in the series.
Great addition to the LitRPG genre. If you're a fan then this is worth the read.
