Abandoned books: Dragons Blight, Omnia Online

The plot seemed an interesting enough idea: Aliens were watching Earth, waiting for us to get advanced enough for them to contact without changing us too much. To hurry us along, they set up a virtual reality online game.

Will the aliens be successful? What will the humans do? I'll never know; the editing was so poor, it was too annoying to read.

I'm so sick of books like this. Multiple spelling, typing, word choice errors per page. It's just completely unacceptable to publish (even self-publish) something of this quality. The author should be ashamed of himself. Everyone who paid money for this book should demand a refund.

Years ago, the dragon-human war ended. This story opens up with the celebration of that war ending.

Oh look, another self-published book with multiple mistakes per page. Hm, or maybe this one has a publisher? It lists this publisher but that looks kind of scammy to me.

Both books abandoned less than 5% in.

Currently reading: War Dogs by Greg Bear. It's not really my type of book at all (military scifi) and I'm not getting into the story. I'm going to give it one more evening of reading for it to hook me, otherwise I'm going to give up on it.
