Fireguard's Thoughts:

Now that's a solid premise if ever I heard one, and by solid I mean silly. The atmosphere is fairly effective, I'll give them that, but the book just isn't much fun to explore. It's not engaging or groundbreaking, and sometimes it's just weird. I never got why the author decided to make the main character's skin change color when he moved to the other world; I half-expected to run into The Maxx somewhere. I also didn't find my avatar appealing. It wore on my nerves after a while to have the wolf explain everything to me or give me warnings, as if my character was stupid and couldn't figure things out for himself. If only the book had continued as bizarrely as it began.
