Another Heart Wrenching Story
4 out of 5 stars
As with the other books in this series – I’m hooked. Chapman writes of a world that I would both want to live and play in. That’s pretty great for a LitRPG series.
Desert Storm – aka Puatera Online Book 3 – continues the story from the first two. Maddie is performing unlike any NPC anyone has ever seen or played with and must continue to make the hard decisions to keep the players (visitors), other NPCs, and maybe even the whole world from collapsing.
Desert Storm wasn’t as emotional as book two was but it was a close second. There were a few scenes (post-portal for example) that were just absolutely heart wrenching. Chapman has my emotions all tied up in this series and I’ve heard that it’s going to take an interesting turn in book 4.
Maddie is such an interesting character (the play on words intended). She finds out a lot about herself in this chapter and it’s been fun watching her grow and become her own in the three storylines. Her arc has been one of the more enjoyable ones in the LitRPG stories I’ve read so far.
I can’t imagine what will continue to happen, but I’m sure that Chapman is hard at work trying to make this world come alive even more. I can’t wait for it. I’ve really enjoyed the first three books.

Forging a new quest, Maddie and Alex unite the desert runners in order to find enough food to feed the Tromoal through their birthing. But there’s descent into chaos at the mayor’s farm on the discovery of a stolen Tromoal egg and the fact he’s hoarding zombie cattle. Maddie's choices are limited, but her fight isn’t.
