After an unexpected death, Artis finds himself in an alternate reality.

A universe with advanced technology and space travel. In this marvelous new reality, he finds he has more than he could ever ask for, including an extraordinary starship. He makes some great friends and finds an amazing woman, Zoe, that he falls hard for. In short, his new life is a utopic wonder.

With help from his newfound friends, Artis sets out to enjoy life and discover more about this new reality. However, some idiots have other ideas. For reasons unknown to the team, a religious, fanatical, and cult-like organization seeks to capture his newfound love. They will do whatever it takes to get her. Artis and his new friends, aided by a super advanced AI, will do anything and everything to protect Zoe.

In a reality where most people are good and few laws exist, a couple of idiots can mess it up for the rest of us. How will Artis and his team deal with this reality? Can they handle the threats of this religious cult?

Mike Conley has purposes written this series to be easy to read and provide a lot of opportunities to laugh.

Fun SciFi read!
I’ve never read a space opera before. I didn’t even know what one was until doing some research. I throughly enjoyed this book. It’s not a hard hitting SciFi/mystery/romance what have you type of book. This is a easy to read and just enjoy it type of book. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and I’m now invested in their lives. You want to know what happens to them! So many questions still need answers. This is a fun space adventure that dips into a different reality than the one we are in. It has interesting world building and social interactions.

I recommend it for a fun light read! (Just be prepared to want to read the next book once it’s released!) 

New concept
I really enjoyed this book. Such a unique concept of the after life. I can't wait until the next book comes to find out what happens! 

Absolutely loved it!
I bought this book thinking that I wouldn’t enjoy it as much because this isn’t a genre I’d normally read, but I’m so happy I gave it the chance I did. I loved it! It kept my attention the whole time and I didn’t want to put it down. The characters were amazing. I loved all of them. The story was well written and I’m excited to read the next one when it comes out. 

Great Fun Sci-f!!
Great book concept that introduces you to an interesting concept and world. You get to have the easy fun of instantly becoming rich in this world and surrounded friends,with a fun mission at the end. 

Loved this book
Absolutely loved this book, it was a great lead in from present day into a multiverse of space travel and different worlds. It was easy to read and made for a very enjoyable afternoon, I am so looking forward to the next book in this series. 

Very well crafted story
The book drew you in and brought you to the after the end was a surprise not what I expected. I look forward to book two. 

An engaging SciFi escapism.

The story is well written, entertaining and engaging. It's fast paced and packed with action without neglecting character development. I dive in with the expectation that this is a simple military sci-fi because of the cover of the man in a spacesuit but I would best describe it as star trek/cowboy bebop meets sword art online.

I read this book in 2 sittings along with Fate of the Jedi in honor of May the 4th. It's a very enjoyable read with an interesting concept.

The story follows Artis who dies and finds himself in a new reality, a realm with advanced technology and space travel. 

The thing I like about the book is how real the characters are. The crews are not simply cut and paste; each with their own unique traits and personality including the AI called Sexy. I recommend this book to any lover of scifi and anyone who love space adventure mixed with lit-rpg. I am looking forward to Artis and his crew next assignment.
