Welcome dear friends, to the Virtual Reality Full Immersion System called Bookworld Online!

Your name is David Drake and you are a 10 year old slave to the Marsh Hag. You were bought from your parents when you were only a small child at three years old. You don't really remember your old family at all. That's a good thing, since you would hate them on sight for selling you to her. All you've know for your whole life is pain. You are usually quickly healed and receive a lot of training and experience as her unofficial apprentice.

It's unofficial because she would never pay to have you registered as an actual apprentice. To everyone else, you are just the boy she took pity on and brought into her home. What they don't know is that you are much more than that. So much more.

You are her food. She uses you as her own personal buffet and she indulges herself quite often. You even have the permanent scars to prove it. You have learned many things from her, mostly without her knowing, since you have been helping more and more with her spell work the last few years and her potion making. The only parts you can't do are the magic condensing rituals that her potions require and the mana infusions that a lot of her other creations need.

Do you wish to initiate the Main Storyline with these parameters?

I saw that there was a .5 star rating for this story and decided to be the equalizer of sorts. Because that review makes absolutely no sense. Only someone supremely stupid would rate this story a .5 star. 

First, based on grammar, spelling, and punctuation alone this story would be at least a 3 star. That's if you had no interest in the style, plot and the other great things about this story. Which is totally fair if you dont; not every story is for everyone. Grammar, spelling, and punctuation are very important to me when I read a story. I can look past some mistakes, but generally if those things are bad in a story I cant stand to read them. Even if the idea of the story is great and really interesting. I dont know how many novels I've dropped because of those reasons. So if grammar, and spelling are also important to you; then you need to at least give this book a try. You will not be disappointed.

Second, the whole idea and premise of the story is reall interesting and engaging as a reader. How many novels has anybody read where the Virtual Reality game is about picking a book, and then you get to be the main character of said story? This is the first one for me. It's a brilliant idea, and I appreciate the creativity of Bokuboy for thinking of this. I will say the first part of the story can be pretty dark, but the way it is written keeps you reading, hoping that he will finally escape his prison. It's so satisfying seeing th MC become his own person .

Overall this Is a fantastic novel so far. It deserves nothing but a 5 star rating in my opinion. It still baffles me how someone can give this such a bad reveiw with no explanation. Seriously dude, did you get confused after seeing such a great book, and give it a bad review because you are so used to reading books that are hardly understandable trash? Anyway thanks for the novel bro, and I hope you keep updating as per normal. Keep it real, TomatoesAreLife out. "Drops mic"

This story is an emotional rollercoaster hence the title of my review. This story is about a boy torn from his family raised is a brutal way as a slave/apprentice, sic more slave than apprentice.

The Hag is a vile piece of work and should be burnt at the stake for the Horrors and Tortures inflicted upon the MC.

The people of the town should all be hung by their thumbs, with a few exceptions, for being myopic and bigoted.

All is not lost there are some good people to be found and Hope is not lost for the MC.

It is a wonderful read and very well written.
