It is totally different from anything I've ever read, and trust me, I've read some weird s#!t in my time!
So, we join Anders, a night ranger elf avatar who is making his way through a computer world which becomes weird.
He soon realises if you can't kill them shag them is the way forward in this game.
He gets a sawesome bubble butt to help him cope with ginormous monsters.
It's not so much m/m but m/mm action (male/male monster).
This book is pretty niche; it really helps if you like video games (which I do) and seriously, don't even touch this book if you're sensitive to m/m activity.
There's really cool text boxes to show when the characters are talking to each other.
This actually made me feel like I was an avatar in the game.
I found myself wondering what my colour accents would be, and whether I'd choose an elf class avatar, and what my special (s) power would be. ;-p
However, these text boxes do limit the devices you can read this book on.
My poor old 4th gen Kindle couldn't download it. But as I have an android phone I was able to read it on the Kindle app on that, so really not a problem.
Actually, reading it on my phone, flicking the screen added to the feel of gameplay which may well have enhanced my reading experience on this occasion.
The book is well written and is wonderfully unique.
The characters leap out of the pages, and are all really well endowed...err...developed.
High scores for fun and creativity.
You have never read a book like this before.
Seriously. I'm not a fan of the modern erotica genre for a number of reasons that I will not get into here. What I found in Anders' story was a refreshing, humorous, and in no way blood-boiling take on both video game satire and campy, anything goes sex romps.
Any video game monster you can think of (and some you would never think of) can't seem to keep it in their pants when our hapless hero wanders by. Yes, this does make for some strange and even uncomfortable situations, but it works, trust me on this.
The story itself is fun. Admittedly, it has something of a slow start and I was a little worried that each chapter was just going to be Anders being mauled by a different game boss, but no, that's just the set up. A couple of chapters in we meet the rest of the group and suddenly there's plot being spewed everywhere.
I daresay, my favorite of the bunch might just be the caps lock abusing Roodg. Why? I wish I knew. My reasons are as shrouded in mystery as Roodg's gender identity. There's just something endearing about several text boxes filled with nothing but "hI!" and "nEAT!"
Who would enjoy this? Video gamers with a sense of humor, M/M erotica fans with a sense of humor, humor fans with a sense of humor, and perverts the world over.
So first of all, I am not the target audience for this book. I don't read much fantasy, especially elves and fairy so on a quest. And I'm not really into video games. Especially ones where you wander around till you find something to fight. I do read M/M books and erotica, but usually ones focused on romance.
Reguardless, loved the book. The entire thing was delightfully ridiculous. The cover is gorgeous. We get the story from Anders' point of view - an elf character playing a MMPG who has lost his pants and must level up enough get some useable clothes. He needs to battle monsters and bosses to get points and find items to help him do this. Something has gone wrong in the game and most of the bosses want to take advantage of Anders' pantsless state. We get to know some other players through their use of comments in text boxes which adds to the authenticity.
I realized at about chapter 14 that I didn't know much about Anders outside of the game - what he looks like, how old he is, what real life responsibilities he had to deal with - but it didn't matter. The story is about the fantasy game.
Despite not being well versed in fantasy books or video games, I never felt lost or confused. I may have missed a couple of jokes, but even if I did, the book had a great sense of humor and Anders' list got funner to more items that got added to it. (I am going to start my own list.)
There is a lot of sex in this book and some of it was a little odd. I have a very fine line for dub-con/non-con and there was once or twice I thought a boss battle might cross it, but it didn't. The sex was steamy and I enjoyed the creative use of in game abilities to enhance it.
I can easily say I've never read anything like this and I'm glad I did.
Would I read this again? Yes
Would I read this author again? Yes! There is a sequel in the works.
Five stars for sexy fun times.
And to the people who didn't like the content of the book, read the description! It's exactly what is says on the tin - elfrotica in a fantasy video game setting.
Starting out I really thought this was a weird book. I like playing rpgs but reading a characters experience with(in) one was just odd and to be truthful not as enjoyable as playing and seeing the story unfold myself. I also thought Ander's may have picked up a hentai rpg instead of a normal rpg.
The writing was very descriptive. It was helpful in helping me to visualize what was happening and how the characters might have looked. Although the length of the bosses or NPC ...umm...nether regions were a bit more tricky and scary to think about.
There were a lot of questions raised about why Ander seemed to be the only one to be experiencing these unfortunate (or well maybe fortunate to Anders) turn of events involving the enemy and NPCs to want to assault him sexually. I liked that the author managed to answer all those questions that popped up while I was reading in the story. Although I'm still unsure why Anders broke (unless the Pink slime caused it to happen?)
I don't recommend this to anyone who wants romance since this isn't that type of book. However if you like erotica (and elves) this is definitely a book to give a read.
So, the basics out of the way, all I can say is, while I hesitate to state that this the kinkiest thing I've ever read, it certainly makes top three, and it is one of the most exuberantly weird pieces of fiction I've ever read, but in a good way. Sort of like "A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," but with much, much more bizarre and graphic sex. Anders stumbles into a whole unexpected side of the game, one in which the game monsters want to use him as a sex toy rather than fight him. At first he panics, but then goes along for the ride, discovering amazing superpowers in the sex department on the way. In a book other than this one, Anders's predicament would be disturbing rather than amusing, as his consent in many of these encounters is sketchy or nonexistent, but somehow he always ends up on top (figuratively speaking; literally he's normally on the bottom), defeating the bad guys with his sAWESOME heinie (that's the word I'm going to use here, hehe) of holding and maybe finding love along the way.
If that's not enough, the different characters all have distinct voices, which is conveyed through the use of game text boxes (BTW, unless your Kindle is super-fancy, you're going to want to read this on a mobile device) and unique punctuation. The secondary characters also go on their own quests, involving much sexual confusion and gender-switching, when they're not arguing so hilariously via text box that at one point I actually cried with laughter. This book is not for everyone (e.g., those squeamish about graphic depictions of gay sex), but for those who want to read something a little bit (or a lot) different in the fantasy and erotica genres, I can't recommend it enough!
The premises of the book are a video game, but unlike the ones already out (series such as World of Warcraft or Magic the Gathering, just to name a few), the story happens through the avatars, inside the game. The dialogues are also special, being all done in chat boxes.
For those who ever played MMORPG games, you'll see a bit of yourself and maybe your friends in the book, minus the sexual parts of course. You'll recognize some of the problems you have when you start, such as not remembering the name of a city, or getting lost in the virtual world, or get lagged to death, which leads to funny events. By the way, this story is peppered with humor. (Got to love Gliint and his bad connection.)
That said, this book might not be for everyone. As described, this is elfrotica. Anders, our main avatar is broken and every boss encountered wants his butt, but don't expect sexy m/m romance, at least not in the beginning. Some people might even be shocked by the first boss encounter. I mean, if not for being an avatar, one might say our poor Anders gets raped. Sure, he learns to use his talents and even gets to like it but at first, it's a little rough. Still, always remember that Anders is only pixels.
I've bought both formats, Kindle (which is a PDF) and the print. The latter was a lot easier to read and it has such an awesome cover. It fits well on a shelf as well as in a library.
CB Archer never fails to make me laugh, chortle, chuckle, and giggle. His style is unique and amusing. This book is great for people who enjoy computer based roleplaying games and enjoy erotica with a silly spin on it.
Breakers had me laughing, cringing and flipping to the next page. With a cast of great characters, we follow a poor elfboy on a quest (he doesn't even really know what the quest is about) and along the way he gets banged by monsters. A lot. But so does everyone else. Monsters are not discriminatory.
Banging and hilarity ensue.
Archer has a keen knack for making of the characters unique and likable. The in-jokes were fun and addictive. It's silly and sometimes sweet and just a great read.
If you enjoy cracky erotica, fun fantasy tropes, and just an amazing character list, give Breakers a read.
It also has an underdog hero I can cheer for, an interesting story (for those of you who are into computer games), and overall, is very funny. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading the next ones.
