A Fantastical Book

Epic is an interesting book, going from peaceful rural life to a fantastical medieval video game, where there are Medusa's, Dragons, Wyverns, Kobolds, and Vampyres. In this book, Erik Haraldsson is caught up between a political coup for power, and a video game come to life. This video game is partially the reason for the political coup, as it runs the whole world, and everyone plays, because to play is to earn money, thats right, currency in the game is real money, and fights are resolved online, in an arena. What happens in this book, is that a team of unlikely heroes defeat a dragon, one of the most deadly creatures in that world, and find out about a quest which ends the world.


This is one of my all-time favorite books. It has origional ideas, a cast of good characters, and is a joy to read. Thanks so much to AADL for having this book, I would never have found it without you.
