Publisher's Summary

Success is more treacherous than failure, bringing dangerous attention, and potentially unbeatable foes.

Kat beat the bad guys and scored a pile of credits deep enough for her to fill a kiddy pool and go swimming in it. What she didn’t expect was for the mastermind of her plight to survive, as well as do her a favor: She removed her from the Arcology, and enrolled her in the GroCorp corporate college. She knows the Arcology, but this is a chance to earn enough credits to set her family up for life.

But people are disappearing, and betrayal lurks around every corner. Kat is out of her depth, and everyone is playing for keeps. Only by relying on every erg of power she’s managed to scavenge from the Tower of Somnus does Kat even begin to stand a chance.

What if the power she earns comes at a price that isn’t hers to pay?

I want more

I like it and it has me wanting more. the story is great, the dystopian world mixed with the game world makes for a talk of overcoming tyranny.
my only complaint is the use of they/them pronouns for the alien. I don't care about catering to the wokists, but it just makes it sound plural when referring to an individual.

total action movie stuff

It's like the first, but more action, bigger stakes, and intergalactic. Oh, not quite a spoiler, considering the contents of the first book, there is more death of important characters. You might be slightly traumatized.

Excellent

I normally expect a second book to be lackluster as it bridges book one and book three. This book is not like that. It may start just a little slow, but that slowness has a purpose in the character building and it resolves soon enough. Again, I love that this series has a great storyline out of game. The in game material is very cool, but the "real world" plot is great. High stakes and intense. I love it.

another great performance from Andrea Parsneau.

Now that's the way to end a good book that leaves you wanting more without a cliffhanger.

Not as good as the first

With the fist book you had a pretty decent balance between story progression and battles/fighting. With the second book you literally went from dungeon battles to fighting in the real world. It got pretty tedious after a while.

There was little story progression. Its as if the author used the dungeon fights as filler to stretch the story length. Disappointing.

More like a movie script than a book

This book is a series of highlights of events , lots of time skipping and jumping to midway through something. It's a unique style as if watching scenes in a movie.

Like the chapter starts with then attacking a duengon boss, no build up on how they got there, their plans or tali about the dungeon or what they did that day.

In fact a lot of chapters end right as a conversation or fight is about to start and just summarize later what happened.

This book is a lot of tell not show, able to cover a lot of time by skipping development Might be great for people with short attention spans who get bored with build up or details and just want to skim a story.


It's good if one likes that, if not, it seems lacking.

Chiwaukee Nights is just crazy good!

Wow Cale Plamann's Chiwaukee Nights is just as crazy good as Foundations book1 was. Andrea Parsneau, again gives us another Stellar 11 ⭐ performance!
Needless to say our MC, Kat will never give up the fight whether it's in-game (The Tower of Somnus) or out-game. And she finds the faster she builds up her in-game stats, sometimes clearing a dungeon every night, that it just might give her the edge she needs to survive in the distopic world she lives in.

Here's a couple of quotes from the book that amused me.
"Guns might be fun but knives are a girl's best friend."

"Don't interrupt your enemy when they're making a mistake."

"I don't do quiet."

shadowrun in book form

I liked the second book even more than the first. I also have a new craving for shadowrun now.

a fantastic follow up!

Cale Plamann's Tower of Somnus is fantastic and this follow up is just as good as the first book (if not better). I love the way the tower works and this book has more time in the tower! Andrea is the voice of Kat for me. She has made the story feel full. Great story all around.
