WarSpell: The Merge Kindle Edition
How does politics deal with people often citizens who are suddenly gifted with special powers, and an extra set of memories. Magic has started working!
But it's not legitimate magic. Not the magic of Merlin or the powers of psychics. Instead it is the magic of a "silly" game. A Role Playing Game called Warspell and other games like it. The sort of games played with oddly shaped dice and little lead figurines by even odder people. And now not only is this silly sort of magic working, but the oddballs who play the games suddenly have special powers. Some of them are gifted with combat, or other skills. Others can do magic. They're riding magical horses through the sky or healing the sick in the name of false gods. They say they've merged with a character they played in one of their games. But is that really true? Have they merged, or been possessed?
To the Merged, things look a bit different.
Suddenly, with no warning, they have the memories of a whole other life. Not a game life, a real life with a real mother and father, real friends and enemies. For many, even most, a life filled with violence and pain. Yes, they have skills and abilities, but those abilities were learned and earned in a hard school. Yes, they are changed, but anyone would be when they suddenly had a whole other life added to their own,But they are still themselves.

Having played RPG's in college and for a brief time after how could I resist a novel based on such a premise? Well I couldn't, and have already read it cover to cover twice. Highly recommended for fans of fantasy!
This novel blends the fan-fiction aspect common to the general genre of 'gamers visits the gameworld., inserts 'real world' problems, and the fact military personnel likes to kill time with roleplaying games. Then for reasons beyond me the writers inserts politics into the mix. This adds a large dose of boring distractions to what could otherwise have been a fun distraction from reality.
I've avoided going into specifics, but American readers living a life in uniform might well like this novel. Anyone else should stay clear. Decent spelling and attention to details, which is why it gets the rating 3/5.
I liked the characters,and the story kept me going on my treadmill.
A fun diversion!
Both are fun reads, with enough real-world detail to keep interest. This setting has great potential for sequels and/or a shared world.
