All of what makes me, me, will be forced to evacuate. Whatever your intentions may be friend…will you please lend me your company just for tonight? I promise it will be the last time I ask.

Lost in Fantasia

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 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. “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
