Sarah Hoffman meets Doctor Kwibee, who has been disavowed by his military employers following the accident that led not only to Sarah’s husband’s and brother’s having entered a catatonic state, but also to the similar entrapment of a quarter-million other players, who will remain trapped until the IBOT program is allowed to complete whatever mysterious internal objectives it has set for itself. Sarah volunteers to make an unauthorized entry into the now militarily controlled project.
Sarah opens her eyes to find herself in the alien world of Nirayel. While occupying the body of the computer-generated Paladin, Selina Valorous, Sarah embarks on a desperate struggle to save her husband’s life and maintain her unstable Internet connection. Arbitos is attacked by the Dark Empire. A horde of Dark-elves burst through an exploded section of wall surrounding the city.
The pace quickens, the plot thickens, and Borin Krue’s problems have only just begun as Book Two of the Rendering Nirayel series continues to expand the horizons of a world seemingly more real than the one he can’t remember.
