#1 – Dodge Tank
“There’s only one rule…don’t get hit.”
Ryan’s life sucks.
His brother is a jerk, his mom is sick, and his legs are next to useless thanks to a neurological disorder. Plus the world ended two centuries ago from nuclear war. Now, what’s left of humanity live below ground, with the only escape from reality being the massive VR world of Crystal Shards Online.
But even ingame, Ryan’s life sucks. Unable to play a combat class due to his condition, he works as a miner, earning barely enough to get by and not nearly enough to afford the operation that will save his mom’s life.
When Ryan discovers an item that grants the ability to dodge any attack, however, he has the chance to become one of the game world’s most elite and sought after players: a Dodge Tank.
But for someone who’s never played a combat class, success isn’t so easily had.
Now, to save his mom, Ryan will have to overcome his disability and level his way to the top, but the real-world consequences are more far reaching than he ever could have imagined, and the fate of not just his mother, but humanity itself, may be resting in his hands…
#2 – Shard Warrior
“Becoming a Dodge Tank was just the beginning.”
The World Boss is defeated, but Ryan’s troubles are far from over.
Transported to a new world, Ryan and his friends must figure out how to save their home city of Citadel, while learning to survive in a game world where death is now all too real.
But first, Ryan must keep his promise to Val Helena, and sets out on a dangerous quest to the Vale of Sorrows to defeat the Shadow King. With an enemy ten times stronger than a world boss, Ryan will have to do some serious leveling up as a Dodge Tank to be fit for task.
But when he encounters a fellow gamer with an agenda of his own, Ryan finds his plans not only derailed but his very life threatened by an enemy of his own making!
Ryan will have to grow in both level and maturity to face the difficult struggles ahead. But the game has more secrets to reveal and the enemy lying just below the surface, may be more terrifying than anything he could have imagined.
#3 – Shard Wraith
“What darkness within the Labyrinth awaits?”
After defeating the Shadow King and opening the gateway to the mysterious Labyrinth of Onizoso, Reece’s hopes are dashed when a surprise attack leaves his girlfriend’s life hanging in the balance.
With only minutes to save her, Reece and his friends must enter the labyrinth in hopes of finding the one person who may be able to bring her back to life…but in a place where players turn into Shard Wraiths, their hopes may already be lost.
Now Reece will have to navigate a strange new world fraught with dangers, while fending off a pursuing army and racing against the clock. And with the threat lurking just outside, the labyrinth might be only the start of his troubles.
To protect the ones he loves, Reece will have to challenge his fears and principles, or risk losing everything and becoming a Shard Wraith himself.
But the Labyrinth holds many dark secrets and what he discovers within, may not only change the outcome of their mission, but redefine the very nature of the game world itself…
