[Changed the Summary based on reader feedback. Thanks guys!]

When Mitchel gets a birthday gift from his girlfriend Sandra - a pre-order version of the newest VR game, he is thrilled. Real-life graphics, full-body senses, and a mysterious world that nobody knows anything about seem like a great way to escape real-life for a few months or longer. 

Two days later, his dreams of a pleasant pastime are shattered. After meeting a rude welcome-NPC, getting a weak starting body, and having a near-death experience, he finds himself sleeping on the ground, cold and filthy. Unable to log-out, he now has frightening dreams where the tutorial-AI is walking around in his body plotting Earth's conquest. If that isn't enough, he slowly realizes that the game might not actually be a game but that he could very well be in another world.

Can Mitchel find out what is going on and where Sandra is? Can he regain his own body, and would he still want to when all is said and done?

[The Story]

What this story is: A LitRPG, portal-like, slow-moving story with a protagonist who has to balance crafting and 'magic' to survive. The books have a pre-thought-out plot and finish.  Also, the world is harsh, and things don't always go the MC's way.

What it is not: A drama, romance, grimdark, although these elements might appear.

I've had some feedback that the intro seems to set up a very rough life for the MC. There is a reason for this, and I hope you give it a try beyond the first few chapters. Do note, this is not an unreasonably harsh novel.

[Series 1 - finished]
- So, the first three books are done and all on Amazon. I'll leave this here as a stub for people to find with the first six or seven chapters of each book to read. 
- John

Book 1: (Released on Kindle and Amazon)

When Solus awakens as a lowly skeleton, only undead still roam the barren Earth. Without memory or personality, he must learn fast if he is to keep his new existence. Soon he finds himself dealing with ancient AI, more experienced undead, massive Wyrms, and long-hidden truths. If this wasn't enough, he has to figure out what these pesky emotions are that keep popping up.

Book 2: (Released on Kindle and Amazon)

A year after the events of book 1, Solus is still trying to find a way to restore his status window. Straying deeper into the wastes, he searches for his original sphere, hoping that perhaps it can offer him a solution. Instead, he stumbles upon an ancient hidden installation and finds an AI of a different caliber. It might have the knowledge to help him, but is it trustworthy enough?On the return trip, Solus meets a new adversary: a new kind of undead that is almost as powerful as himself. When he finally manages to return to Skulltown, he finds that he isn't the only one that these strange new undead have attacked.As more and more mindless and highly aggressive undead begin to appear, disturbing news arrives from beyond Skulltown. Black rifts are appearing in the wasteland, ejecting both sentient and mindless undead. The only one who may have the solution is also the one least likely to help him: Scathia, the mysterious leader of Silt, the one who awoke Vingria, and the one who seems bent on world domination.

Book 3: (Released on Kindle and Amazon)

Many years have passed when Solus slowly wakes from his slumber. He quickly realizes that his body is still unable to move and might be for a long time. However, events above ground are not waiting for him, and he needs to find a way to interact with the world if he is to save his friends. Meanwhile, Tirella finds multiple massive threads that might spell the end of the fledgling undead world.

 

I am super excited to announce that all three books have been released on Kindle. Due to this, all but the first few chapters of each had to be removed from the public domain.

Without any previous indication, all the televisions, smartphones, and radios start broadcasting a message recorded by the government leaders of the world. In it, they explain a horrible tragedy that is about to befall us. Our earth will blend with what is considered to be the primary dimension after having been apart for an unknown amount of time. The merger will not only affect the world, but also the beings on it, and humanity must mingle with other species or die out. Everybody will need to determine the other-dimensional race to pick. The world leaders have known of this for many years and have tried preparing people by creating popular fiction, games, and movies. These are nothing more than tutorials of what is about to happen.

[Mostly removed, released on Kindle Unlimited]

What if spacefaring demons invade the world, and slaughter everyone? Then you wake up the middle of a pitch dark abyss and find you are in the body of a small spider demon with hundreds of similar beings around you. And to top it all of, a disembodied voice tells you to crawl your way up or waste away down there for all eternity.
Well, that is what happened to Anton, and he needs to figure out how to get out of, wherever the hell he is, or go crazy of boredom.

EDIT: After Nothing but bones, this is my second book that is released on kindle. I've changed it considerably and had it edited. This did mean that most of it it had to be removed from here.
