Max Anderson is a teenage boy that lives in Germany with his mother. Jimmy is his friend who has a video game designer for a father. Max had coaxed his friend to allow him to try out their newest game.
Things went strange for Max not long after he entered the game. He found himself feeling like he was actually living the game. The problem was that the game was set in the middle ages.
Max found a boy around his age named Bero. He was relieved that Bero allowed him to stay at his hovel. Max finds himself struggling to not stand out dressed in his modern clothes and his modern speech.
The adventure Max is living is interesting and you really get a good sense of his personality. He is a caring guy and he tries to help whenever he can. Times are dangerous for serfs like Bero and his family. These are times where people are burned at the stake if witchcraft is suspected, and Max tends to get questioning looks from the community members every time he does something odd or opens his mouth.
The adventure continues as Max is in a dangerous situation. After meeting Bero’s sister, Juliana, he tries to save her and save her life. He is making himself noticed and he doesn’t need that. But he can not resist helping these people he is living with.
This book is one huge fun adventure. The people are gritty and they feel like actual people. I was not wanting the end to come. I want to continue this story with Max. I was provided a copy of this book by the Author in exchange for an honest review.
