Pendulum Heroes: Pendulum Heroes Book One Kindle Edition
Melvin Morrow has become a barbarian warrior maiden. Will he be able to escape this new, dangerous world and the chainmail bikini he foolishly chose as his armor or will he and his friends be stuck living their lives as their game avatars?
Melvin's a black teenage boy not used to being ogled or the real world consequences of wearing a steel bikini. But the real world has shifted... him, his friends Jason and Rich, and his big brother Mike are stuck in character, in a place where danger doesn't lurk because it prefers to boldly stride out in the open.
Mages import game players like Melvin via the Rift Pendulum. The reason: the work's suicidal and pendulum heroes are insanely powerful. Usually. Melvin and his friends can be, too, if they're in the right emotional state to trigger into character. Melvin's a one-man, uh, one warrior maiden army when he's angry but anger's hard to find with all that mortal danger striding around everywhere.
It couldn’t get worse. Melvin's best friend Jason isn't even human and, thanks to this dangerous world and its axe-wielding inhabitants, quickly becomes not even an archer. His other friend Rich is 15 going on 50 now that he's in an old mage's body complete with untameable gray beard. Melvin's brother Mike looks like a chupacabra and he's really pissed about that.
The road back home's at the end of a suicidal quest. Melvin better find something to rage about... because being genre-savvy only gets you so far.
Pendulum Heroes, James Beamon's debut novel, is an adrenaline fueled adventure for anyone who's spent a little too much time on the character creation screen instead of playing the game, those of us who have thought just how godmode we'd be with mage power, but mostly it's for all of us who have wondered who the heck installs a portal to another world in a wardrobe. Fans of Ernest Cline and Scott Meyer better be prepared to fall in love with a new series..

The cast have both thier in-game and their real characters, casting dimensioned characters is hard enough without compounding the difficulty.
I like fantasy and SciFi it seems to me it misses both of those boats but for all that its not a bad read.
The action comes fast, the fight scenes are exciting, and the character development is really great. It's a lot of fun to see black kids in gaming lit. There are lots of white Russians, Americans, and Brits in the genre. It made a difference in the viewpoint and humor and gave a fresh look to the situations.
