Epic (Epic, #1) by Conor Kostick

Everyhting that is carried over from Epic is briefly explained. This book pretty much fell in my lap and I otherwise would have never known of its existence.

Feb 09, David Medford rated it it was ok. And obviously, the whole idea behind this book is just so creative: Saga is kkostick game set in a more modern time period than Epic. The idea of what pretty much amounted to koztick virus within the game as the issue could have created a lot more tension than there was and the characters were pretty average.

Saga is a sentient game, engineered thousands of years ago by humans, and then taken over by the game as it became self-aware. Ghost, together with her friends and Erik, novell hero from Epicdetermines to stop her, and along the way she might discover her past and change Saga’s oppressive social order. Saga was trully a magnificent sequel, it honestly put Epic to shame. The writing style 3,50 is simple and very good, without unnecessary boring descriptions of places or thoughts.


Epic (Epic, book 1) by Conor Kostick

Epic takes place on kosticm world named New Earth and follows the life of a boy named Erik Haraldson and his involvement in a game called Epic. Overall, I found Saga to be disappointing. The slang of the characters in Saga was interesting but for a world that has had years to develop, it was stuck in the 90s punk stage, which was very odd.

The main character, Ghost, has constantly grown as a person and in the fact that she knows who she is in the world. Saga was a computer game created on earth over 2 years ago, but the game came to develop is own intelligence and grew sentient beings called RAL.

As they got closer and closer to getting to were they wanted to be they Epic is about a Eric, a boy how wants to help his parents get more money. YA sci fi book I read probably around in elementary school. This causes some consternation among the inhabitants of Ksotick, who begin speculating about the mysterious people who suddenly appear and disappear. One example of a theme is fight for what you believe in.

This was a great story. Also Ghost was clearly described as black and this had no baring on her life, she okstick just another person, epiv is fantastic.


The creativity was blowing my mind apart! She tries to get Erik to rewrite the code of Saga in exchange for releasing several millions of people from the poison she inserted into their bodies. Epic is Conor’s most successful book, selling overcopies worldwide.

Book Review: Epic by Conor Kostick

Jun 05, Karen Ball rated it really liked it. However, this book — a sequel to the previous book — ignored important world consequences that would have happened as a result of the previous book. Nov 23, Francesco rated it really liked it Shelves: The Queen is in search of a human willing to reprogram Saga to allow her children to be immortal, and she will do anything to get what she wants, including enslaving two million of New Earth’s people. The additional pages would have helped develop certain scenes to a far more satisfying outcome.

One of those books where there’s a virtual video game world.
