Book Description

"Erra's Throne strengthens YA... quick and quirky, Erra’s Throne submerges its reader into the world of young gamers, complete with all the angst and latency of teen years, the language saturated by immediacy and sincerity."
- Lonita Cook, Kansas City Examiner

This is Column 2 of 5 of Erra’s Throne. To follow Emmy’s story from the beginning, get Column 1 right here on Amazon. And if you have not yet read Column 1, hey lookout: spoilers below.

New York is shaken, the chat ghost is gone, and all Emmy’s left with is questions and fear.

As the entire city reels from an unprecedented earthquake and a mysterious threat grows in the West, Emmy and Fehns fight to uncover the truth behind Erra’s Throne – the incredible new MMORPG that… well, that’s kind of the problem. Because either this game is capable of the impossible or she – Emmeline Kim – is finally totally losing her mind.

Either way, she's going to need more Kit Kats.

Erra’s Throne is a novel in five parts about a kid who has to save humanity by being really, really good at video games. It’s also about family, loyalty, high school, and chocolate.

Game. On.

5.0 out of 5 stars Things are heating up! I'm hooked! 3 Aug. 2014
By Jacqueline - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just as cleverly written as column 1, but double the action and suspense! This most recent installment forcefully reminds you that this is an epic tale. We delve deeper into the beautiful and mysterious world of Akkad, the witty and neurotic mind of Emmaline Kim, her band of nerdy gaming misfits and disaster stricken New York City. The characters are so dynamic I find myself worrying about them, laughing with them, getting angry with them, and being incredibly proud of them. I thought I had a good idea about where this story was going but I was a fool! So many twists and turns. There's a clear sense that something BIG is brewing and I can not wait to see how it all plays out.
5.0 out of 5 stars who pretty quickly became my favorite character (besides Emmy) 4 Aug. 2014
By John Mangin - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're looking at the Amazon page for Erra's Throne: Column Two, that probably means you already read Column One, in which case you're already hooked and have no need for this review. As in Column One, the scenes that take places within the game are mind-blowing, pulse-quickening, and completely unexpected. I'm looking forward to more "TrueDeath" challenges in future columns, and I *LOVE* the addition of Emmy's/Fehns's raiding partner Rich, a hitherto overlooked classmate and fellow freak/geek in the LEVELUP! gaming club, who pretty quickly became my favorite character (besides Emmy). Can't wait more of him.

The scenes from the "real world" draw you in at a subtler pace. They had offered a respite from the intensity of the gaming scenes, but things seem to be heating up...

One more thing: Erra's Throne offers the pleasures of literary fiction (quality writing, all the way down) AND the pleasures of genre fiction (lots of exploding bad guys). Looking forward to the remaining columns and then re-reading the whole thing from the beginning.
5.0 out of 5 stars James Carmichael built a world that you want to roll around in for a good long time 31 July 2014

In Erra's Throne: Column One, James Carmichael built a world that you want to roll around in for a good long time. Column Two pays off the promising beginning and then some -- the world gets deeper and weirder and branches off in totally unexpected ways. What's most striking to me is how my reading experience parallels Emmy's gaming experience. As the gaming sequences gather momentum, I get consumed by the narrative and the outside world turns off for however long it takes me to burst through to the end of the section. Perhaps it's good that these columns are a kind of mandated portion control, or else I'd be binging on Erra's Throne to an unhealthy degree. But I still want to read Column Three right now!
5.0 out of 5 stars Building on one and promising even bigger payoffs 26 July 2014
By Maxudov - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When you finished column 1, everything you wanted column 2 to be, it is. And then some. Continuing the fun, continuing to build suspense, as Emmy learns more about the world she's stumbled into and begins to take action in it...oh yeah, things are heating up. Plus we meet a couple of new characters who probably aren't going away anytime soon. Rich is a cool advent, but the two guys from the video game show have a lot of promise too. But mostly I get the feeling something big is brewing. I hope by the next column.

Just don't expect you're going to pick it up for five minutes. I kept doing that, and then reading 20 pages and being late for stuff.
5.0 out of 5 stars very smart. A new character enters the picture 22 July 2014
By Reihan M. Salam - Published on

It's almost 3 AM. I had assumed I'd just read a few pages of Column Two before going to bed, but I couldn't stop. I kind of thought I had a sense of where things would go, and then I was thrown for a loop. Very suspenseful, very smart. A new character enters the picture. We experience Emmy's downs (and there are a lot of downs) and her up (it's a doozy). We spend more time with the members of LEVELUP! -- I want more from them, by the way. This is engrossing, fun, kind of weird: the best stuff I've read in ages. Read it now, or rather read Column One first and then read this right after.
