Nash Evers has never played a video game in his life...he didn't intend to start after death.
These days, most people have their minds uploaded to HereAfter when they die and keep living into eternity. For Nash this means infinite opportunities to grow his wealth and power. A perfect death.
That is, until he gets drawn into a game he can't escape, with rules he doesn't understand, and stakes he never imagined.
Dragons Rising is the name of the game and the humble HereAfter citizens fill the role of NPCs in wealthy gamers' VRMMO experience.
The experience points are real, the magic is real, and death-for NPCs like Nash- is real.
Nash teams up with his hacker son to try to survive and bring down the corrupt organization that started all of this. But it's going to take more than a few potions and some grinding to teach this old dog new tricks. Nash has destroyed men and corporations, even conquered entire nations-but he's never faced anything like Dragons Rising.
