Lost in Fantasia (Hardcover)
"A surprising and engaging Lit-RPG adventure set in a future where gaming was so evolved (or decadent, depending on your point of view) that humans were employed as avatars... kept me involved in both the game world and the mystery." -Readers' Favorite
When virtual reality takes over, it's hard to tell the difference between what is real and what is a part of a game. Having all memories of life before The Game erased, Tack's experience is altered when a glitch infiltrates her world. After her partner disappears, infected by the glitch, she is forced to find answers to the mysterious Game malfunction to determine if he is dead or alive.
Her home, partner, and game are seemingly destroyed. Glitched herself, Tack embarks on an adventure to unfamiliar and new worlds, including the largest Fantasy role-playing game, Fantasia. However, this glitch isn't like anything else the Gaming world has experienced. With no one respawning and the Game's Production team in a communication blackout, the lines between what is virtual and what is real are blurred even further. If Tack can't stop the glitch, she risks more than just losing her partner forever-everything she knows and loves might disappear.------
Henry Fudders created the largest virtual reality game in the world, one that everyone experiences, whether they want to or not. The Game is praised for its adventure, creativity, and ability to blur the lines between reality and virtual reality. In less than one hundred years, the Game took over real life and built an experience indistinguishable from imagination-until a glitch began eating away at the core of Fudders' creation.
Fudders is dead, and those who know what to do to stop the malfunction are not doing anything to fix it. Struggling to survive in a world outside her own, she uses her battle tactics to make allies and progress in her quest to protect the world from the glitch. However, when confronted with the answers she's looking for, Tack is forced to choose between either saving the game or her newfound allies and partner.
