Otherlife: The Selfless Hero Trilogy


Omnibus Edition

Omnibus Edition Cover

Runner has a problem. He and 499,000 men and women are trapped in a game. He also just happens to be the only person from IT who could log everyone out safely. And he doesn’t remember his password.

He, like everyone else in this nightmare, had their memories scrambled or lost in the process of being loaded into the game. A single garbled message is his only clue on how to save everyone.

The problem is that whoever loaded them into the game, loaded their minds completely. If they die, their brain gets wiped.

Now it’s time for Runner to flex his skills as a power gaming min maxer and see what he can do. Because every time he levels, he might gain the memory of the password. Time to go Hardcore.

Warning and minor spoiler: This novel contains graphic violence, a harem, unconventional opinions/beliefs, and a hero who is as tactful as a dog at a cat show. Read at your own risk.

This is the Omnibus edition of the Otherlife Trilogy. It contains all three books. Only the description of the first book has been included to prevent spoilers from occurring.

Otherlife Nightmares - Book 2

Otherlife Nightmares Cover

Runner and company have safely left the city ahead of the siege. Completing their class promotions with barely any time to spare.

Unfortunately he hasn’t discovered the password he needs to begin the logoff process to save the four-hundred thousand or so crewmates left alive in this game where dying truly means death.

The game continues to shift and change with each day and as a byproduct of Runner’s actions.

Not only do the rules change, but those he’s with have changed. No longer simple programs they have reached actual sentience.

Pressing himself ever onwards to learn more about the world he finds himself surprised at every turn.

On top of navigating the ever changing game the outside world has contacted him directly. Now he has to begin to navigate the situation as a gamer, IT support, and an officer.

Of course this would all be a lot easier if he didn’t get captured within a few hours of leaving Crivel.

Fate seems to be stacking the deck against him as quickly as she can this time around.

The difficulty has been flipped to Nightmare and no one told Runner.
