Singularity: A litrpg novel
Xanthos is an ex-military slacker. He is highly intelligent and loves to learn new things. He is currently using his GI bill to go through college and his past times include hanging out with his best friend and sleeping. His best friend, that he met while in the military, is much more driven and has no time for anything but work and hanging out with his best friend. Drew (the BF) is experimenting with a new computer simulation and asks Xanthos to help out with the development (due to his unique background and because Drew trusts him more than anyone). Xanthos agrees, because he can't say no, and is immediately thrown into a strange new world of imminent danger, where they quickly find out that they don't have control, and can't get out.
