80AD - The Jewel of Asgard - Flinthart, Aiki
80AD - The Jewel of Asgard is the first of five books in the 80AD series. All five books are free. This series is based on the five levels of a fictional computer game called 80AD. Phoenix is 13. He's trying to adjust to a new step-father and having a hard time. One way he escapes is through computer games. His Mom just got him the new game 80AD and he can't wait to play it. Jade is 13. She's the seventh of seven sisters and feels like an outcast. When she gets stranded at home alone, she's excited that her Dad gave her permission to play a new computer game called 80AD. Phoenix and Jade are linked in ways they don't even understand, but when they encounter each other in the game 80AD they find themselves transported to the real first century Britain. In this real life adventure they're fighting for their lives against monsters, magic, and the Roman empire. If they don't win the game, their lives and the world they grew up in will be lost forever. This book is a good fantasy adventure with some interesting characters. The best part is the whole series is free. Highly recommended.
