Publisher's Summary

OVR WORLD ONLINE – GLOBAL ANNOUNCEMENT: A powerful artifact has been discovered.

Zee Locked in has recovered The First Player’s Sword from a dungeon hidden beneath the Goblin’s Keep!

Zee and his friends didn’t expect that after they survived recovering the legendary First Player’s Sword that OVR World Online would announce it to the whole world. Even though no one knows about the secrets that the Sword protects it’s still a powerful one-of-a-kind game item that everyone wants. To make matters worse, they’ve reached Level 5 and the party has to depart the Orientation Zone.

Outside of the OZ, Player-vs-Player combat isn’t just allowed, it’s encouraged. As long as Zee has the Sword, he and his friends will have every Mega Corp, Clan, and treasure hunting Player Killer aiming for them.

As the high-level bounties start to be posted, Zee quickly realizes it won’t take much for him to be knocked down and have the Sword ripped away.

Fantastic LitRPG Fun

Zee Knocked Down superbly continues the story from book one while maintaining that D&D feel. The stakes are higher and more players are joining the game. my only regret is that it's over. I can't wait for book three.

Smart execution of an audio book, story wandering.

I really like the option to skip the lengthy stat sheet updates, it makes the story smooth and prevents the jarring 20 min interruptions.
I do, overall, like the story but book 2 had some things that I did not enjoy.
The story wandered a long ways from the primary objective. I don't mind side adventures but the whole book, apart from the first few chapters, was just an unrelated foray into new material and concepts.
The second thing I didn't like is how deeply overwhelming every situation is. The MC barely has any affect on the outcome of the book and blindly stubles into situations that he is woefully underskilled or unprepared for. I don't need to see overpowered MCs with a perfect solution to every scenario, but this book kept launching the MC into overwhelming powers. I guess there is the general theme that players with wealth are going to have drastic advantages but it seems so unfair that the game wouldn't even be worth playing unless you were filthy rich.
The final complaint is the MC being useless and impulsive while his friends save the day. The price they have to pay to help him with his idiotic "plans" is way too high. I won't spoil anything (I don't think) but the MC through most of this book is just blindly marching into trouble that his friends have to bail him out of and they keep sacrificing unbelievable amounts of themselves for no clear reason. The book starts off early by talking about solving their problems with genius level thinking skills but then the rest of the book is "I need to stab and kill the bad guy" "... blind rage" "kill, kill, kill"

I'll probably listen to book 3, if and when it comes out, but I'm hoping to see some renewed focus on the actual plot of the book and some progress on the decision making skills of the MC.

As a personal favor, I'd like the writer to stop using the phrase "shit a dick". Of all of the dialogue in the book, it seems to be the most unnaturally contrived expression.

It was good

I thought the story was really good. I wish it was a bit longer, however, I will definitely be reading the next book.

Stats not a fan

Love that the author recognizes that’s not all readers are interested in the stats and breaks them out into chapters that can be skipped if your not a fan and listened to if you are.

Zee Still Stupid

It's a decent enough story. However, the author still makes the hero do unnecessary stupid things. There are better ways to create tension. I hope he grows out of this trend and becomes more creative. Speaking of creative, he relies too much on pop culture references.

to much fowl language.

the main story line was good. but several characters were kind of annoying, and there was way to much gross language.

Mostly good

Enjoying the story.
Though it is a little Ready Player One-esque.
The author should probably drop the Exforce series catchphrase they have "borrowed"... you name checked the series in this book, so it's obvious.. and cringe.
