Here’s the set-up:

A new pandemic – the perma effect – has taken over Earth of the near future. Whenever you play your favorite online game, beware: your mind might merge with the virtual world and dump its comatose host. Woe be to those stuck forever in Tetris! And still they’re the lucky ones compared to those burning alive eternally within the scorched hulls of tank simulators.

But some unfortunates – the handicapped and the terminally ill, shell-shocked army vets, wronged crime victims and other society misfits – choose to flee real life willingly, escaping to the limitless world of online sword and sorcery MMORPGs.

Once a seasoned gamer and now a terminal cancer patient, Max grasps at this final chance to preserve his life and identity. So he goes for it – goes for the promise of immortality shared with a few trusty friends and the woman he loves. Together they roam the roads of AlterWorld and sample its agony and ecstasy born of absolute freedom.

What a wonderful surprise. This series is fabulous. I am totally not the target audience but adored every minute I spent devouring this wonderful series.5 star Amazon review

The character development is easy to follow and understand. The mix of humans, non-player characters and artificial intelligence actors and their individual evolution is an interesting interweaving of plots and potentials that expand and flex as the story continues. I liked it a lot.

One Reviewer Notes:
I'm not a gamer - well, i wasn't, except for Angry Birds- but this dive into MMORPG world made me want to discover it. It's probably one of the best ways for a total novice in gaming to get a feel for them. Actually, i registered and tried a few free MMORPG's because of the book.. Well played, D. Rus! The basic concept (existence as consciousness in a virtual world, without a body carrier) raises some interesting philosophical questions as well. Apart from that it's just a good adventure read, addictive enough for me to buy the second volume right after i finished the first. Recommended, also for non-gaming adventure seekers.

One Reviewer Notes:
This was more than just a story about someone immersing themselves permanently in an MMO (online game). It spent lots of time dealing with the mechanics of that world and the details of items, buffs, stats and other game related stuff. That's a recipe for a really dull book... but somehow the author made it interesting, fascinating even. The characters are vivid and well developed. The virtual world feels cohesive and real, with glimpses of a much darker side showing through from time to time. The only downside I can see is that it might not appeal to true non-gamers. While I'm not hooked on MMOs I have played quite a few and I've been a gamer for far too many years so most of the terminology was familiar to me. That said, even if you aren't into games I think this is well worth checking out.
