Antonious King has been selected to beta-test what promises to be the best VR MMO of 2038.
As one of three hundred in the "Ascendant Program" he'll take part in a bloody civil war between the King of the Gods, Ignacious and the God-Hero Auren, granted powerful relics, artifacts, and a near-immortal body.
What's the catch?
There's no Logging out.
There is no game.
The planet Earth has been destroyed on a whim and the "Cadre of Justice" hunts Auren and his Ascendants across space with brutal efficiency. Tony learns quickly that there is much more at stake than gaining early access to the game everyone's been waiting for. Forced into combat sports as a child by a father obsessed with victory, Tony finds himself again, forced into conflict.
With his back against the wall and the most powerful beings in the universe out for his head, Tony unlocks the Dread Knight class; the perfect specialization for survival in the harsh biome of Arach and avenging mankind.
The hard part?
He won't be able to do it alone.
Vasna, the Totemic World-Shaping Shaman, Auren, the Lord of Auras, Jorogu of the Yokai cluster, and a friend thought long gone are just a few of the allies Tony will need to rally against Ignacious the Maddened God-King. Welcome, to Ascendant: Online
