PARTY HARD (Pixel Dust, Book 1)
Before the online game Carpe Noctem hit the market, the average person wasted a third of their life sleeping. Now, instead of lying in bed dreaming about showing up late to class in their underwear, players step into a breathtaking world of fantasy and adventure. For most users, this is a dream come true. For players like MaxDamage24 and his sidekick Kirabell, it is about to become something else.
After being fired, one of Noctem’s creators sets into motion a plan to bring the system crashing down. To stop the collapse, Max and Kira will have to gather their most trusted friends and embark on a quest that will push them to their absolute limits. Together they’ll face creepy dungeons, impossible bosses, and their own nightmares, all while doing their best to stay alive. With a mission this big, none of them will be the same after. The real question is… how much will they be forced to change?
Only one thing is certain – if they want to survive, they’re gonna have to Party Hard.
PYRAMID GAME (Pixel Dust, Book 2)
A year has passed since the events that nearly brought the game, Carpe Noctem, crashing down. Now, just as things are beginning to get back to normal, a new threat emerges.
When an unkillable player attempts to take over the virtual world, Max and Kira are called in to take him down. To win, the party will have to form their own house, infiltrate a tropical palace, pull off an elaborate heist, and maybe do a little dancing.
With enemies old and new lurking around every corner, it will take every bit of teamwork and creativity the party has to get away clean. Because in this game of PVP, their lives may depend on it.
AUCTION OF SOULS (Pixel Dust, Book 3)
A quest for vengeance. A battle for dominance. Anything is for sale at the Auction of Souls.
Max and his party start down a dark path with only an echo to remind them why they’re fighting. Finding their target in the game isn’t enough, they need to find them in real life. Perhaps for this very reason, they’re no longer harmless misfits: they’re the most infamous players in the game.
They get invited to an auction that offers contract items to the highest bidder, a golden opportunity to prepare for the battles that loom in their future. Weapons aren’t the only thing they need. Down a party member, they need a new ally to fill the void in the team.
House Lockheart wasn’t the only group invited: the top players in Noctum gather like moths to a flame. With this many lords, villains, thieves, and assassins in one place, finding an ally is easy; trusting them is far harder.
The auction is open, and the price could be everything.
